Review: Drake by Sawyer Bennett

Yeay to the new addition to our beloved Pittsburg Titans 🙂 I have been waiting for this one since reading the first book.

If you follow the series, you already know the heroine, Brienne Norcross, who is the owner of Pittsburg Titans and CEO of Norcross Holdings. After the tragic plane crash, she took the reins of Pittsburg Titans to carry on her brother Adam’s legacy. Since childhood, she was raised to take over Norcross Holdings and when Adam was heading the Titans everything was more manageable for her. But with Adam and all the players gone, she is putting all her energy and time to rebuild the team in addition to her CEO responsibilities but there aren’t enough hours in a day for her to handle everything. She is lucky to have an amazing management team that supports her but there is one thing she wants to handle herself since she is the one who messed it up in the first place, which leads us to our hero, Drake McGinn. A year ago, Drake, left the NFL and the game he loved because of the scandal his ex-wife’s lies created. He is angry at everyone who chose to believe the lies and betrayed him without even listening. He swore he will never go back to the league or be associated with anyone in it other than the selected few who never believed the lies and were there for him. Nowadays he is a full-time dad to three little boys. Baden is being one of the few people he trusts, when Baden calls to talk to him about the goalie position in Titans, he accepts to meet up. However, Brienne manages to offend him, and he leaves the meeting without looking back. Brienne, being the smart, strong, and independent businesswoman she is, decides to chase him down once she realizes her mistake and offers him a deal he cannot refuse.  From the beginning to the end, the sparks between Drake and Brienne were sizzling but she knew acting on their chemistry would be wrong and inappropriate but Drake being the bad boy he is, was ambitious to ‘stick it to the league’.

I really loved the book and couldn’t put it down until I was done with it. It felt like there was more to the story but cut short. But maybe it is just me since I really didn’t want it to end 🙂 The next book will be coach Cannon West’s story and I am curious about that one. But I am also dying to get my hands on the stories of the remaining 2, Hendrix and Camden, of the ‘Lucky Three’.

All the books in the series can be read as standalone but I highly recommend you start from the beginning 🙂 If you are curious here is the line-up and the links for my previous reviews: Baden, Stone, Gage, and Coen. Enjoy 🙂
