Van (Cold Fury Hockey #9) by Sawyer Bennett

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

4 Stars
Van is a standalone and is part of the Cold Fury Hockey Series. I thought I read every book in the series, but I’m missing two. I need to read them soon.

I’m obsessed and addicted to these Hockey boys. I tell ya, every book I pick up is different. Some of it is light, some of it is a little darker and all have drama.
I’ll admit I didn’t like Simone. I started this book and I instantly hated her. I don’t like a loose girl, so sue me. I’m all about woman power, but it was such a turn-off on how strong Simone was. She practically threw herself at Van, but I’m getting ahead of myself because let me say. By the end of the book, the girl grew on me.
Van’s book takes place mid-way in Lucas’ book. You don’t have to read Lucas’ book prior to reading Van’s, but I found it cute that the time lines overlapped, because I liked both boys. Van is Lucas’ roommate and Simone is Lucas’ little sister.
Yup! It’s a teammate’s little sister read!
This book was heavy! And so yummy. Once I got past Simone’s forward behavior she wasn’t so bad. I kind of liked how light she made the book. She’s a carefree girl, just dropped out of college and is finding herself and is staying on Lucas’ and Van’s couch.
Yup, you can see where this is going.
Van is super broody and my type of Hero. He doesn’t do relationships and he does EVERYTHING he can to push Simone away. I mean, like physically away because she throws herself on-top of him. It was kind of humorous and it gave the book some light moments.
I liked the banter and chemistry between Van and Simone. I like how complicated Van was and I liked how carefree Simone was. The opposites worked for this book. The read was addictive and fast face. I read it in one sitting. If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.
