Roman (Cold Fury Hockey #7) by Sawyer Bennett [Review]

In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.

Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish,

Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.

3 Warm Me Up Stars
Roman is a standalone and is part of the Cold Fury Hockey series. You can read the books out of order and still understand what goes on. I actually have read the books out of order and was perfectly fine.

Roman is kind of his own island. He isn’t cold, he just doesn’t have a need to surround himself with people, but all and all he is a good man. He just gets into a lot of trouble.

I didn’t have a huge connection with Roman, but I found him very likable. He has a bad reputation and it kind of follows him. Let’s just say there is a lot of judgement.

Before Lexi’s mom died she told her that her father is Brian Brannon who is also Gray’s father. She is in a previous book. I was interested in Lexi’s background and dynamic. I wanted her to have a connection with Brain and I enjoyed the long-lost daughter storyline.

I struggled with Gray and Lexi’s relationship. Gray is a huge daddy’s girl so she had a problem with Lexi. I found it really frustrating and kind of hard to read because Gray was really hard on Lexi and Gray is in Ryker’s story. I haven’t read Ryker’s story, but I am cautious now I got a glimpse of Gray’s personality.

What made this book a little different was Brian’s POV, it wasn’t in there much, but I really enjoyed those parts. Like I said, I really liked the whole father/ daughter relationship. It was just really cute.
Roman and Lexi are a sweet couple and more of the problems were placed between Lexi and Gray than anything. I enjoyed that Roman and Lexi’s relationship was low on tension. Overall, I still enjoyed the read and the series.
