Sawyer Bennett is back with a new hockey series ‘Arizona Vengeance’. ‘Bishop’ is the first book of the series. Arizona Vengeance is NHL’s newest expansion team. Being an expansion team allows them to pick one player from every team in the NHL and if the player is not protected by their teams, they are up for grabs. That is how this awesome characters came together. Bishop Scott relocated from New York to Phoenix. He is still in transition to adapt new city and new team. He decides to let loose and relax on his last day before his training starts and that is how he finds Brooke and spend an amazing night with her. What he didn’t except is to run into her at the arena the next day. Brooke is smart, beautiful, and down to earth. Before relocating Phoenix to be with her dad, she had an amazing job in merchandising in NY. Seeing the man she spend an amazing night with standing at her office door is shocking but soon both learns the reason in a compromising way. Brooke’s father is the head coach of Arizona Vengeance and when Brooke and Bishop get caught by Coach Perron in an intimate position, Brooke panics and announces their engagement to her father. Even though, Brooke’s lie wasn’t coming from bad intentions, Bishop gets pissed off. After both calms down they come up with a plan and an expiration date for their fake engagement. With the time they are spending together to make people believe their fake engagement, the lines between make believe and reality gets blurry and they realize that their relationship is anything but fake. More about what happen is for you to find out but what I can say is when you are done you will be looking forward to the next book in the series. Side characters were amazing. I cannot wait to read more about Erik Dalhbeck, Legend Bay, Tacker Hall, Dax Monahan and last but not least Blue.
‘Bishop’ is very light, fast read, free from too much drama. It is a sweet, sexy and heartwarming story. One thing that bothers me was the ending. It felt like there was more to the story but it abruptly stopped. I know there will be more books in the series but I wish there was an epilogue. Since I mentioned upcoming books in the series ‘Erik’ and ‘Legend’ is next in line. However, I am really looking forward to read Tacker and Dax’s stories. Also, I am definitely hoping for crossover stories between ‘Cold Fury’ and ‘ Arizona Vengeance’ series.
