Van by Sawyer Bennett: Review

I'm super late to the party, but everyone has to read this book!!! Now!!!! <3 <3

Van (Cold Fury, Book #9) Sawyer Bennett 

Release Date: November 28, 2017

Synopsis: Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot. 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.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

OMG!!! This book was AMAZING!
Sawyer Bennett is absolutely one of my fav authors, and I know that when I start to read one of her stories I won't be able to put it down.
And this is exactly what happened with Van.

Van has earned a spot in my top 3 fav books of the Cold Fury series... and this is telling a lot, because I love all these books and it's really hard to pick only 3! But I floved this book, and even more Van and Simone.

Some of the things that I loved:
- Van and Simone, as a couple, were fireworks. And what I loved about them is that it was a 360° relationship. To explain better, they had an amazing sexual chemistry, like the bed is on fire amazing, but it was not only that, they supported each other, especially in super duper difficult times, they talked to each other... I can imagine them in 50 years and this fill my heart with happiness. And another thing, their relationship was balanced, it wasn't an alpha male + unsure female, noooo, absolutely not.

- I loved Simone, she's young, only 22, but she was really mature for her age. I really admired her sexual confidence, her boldness in pursuing Van to enter a relationship with her. I loved how she took charge and how she knew what she wanted, at least regarding Van. And she was really there for him when he had to relive his difficult past.

- Van was uuuuu, hot. A broody, hot, male who made me want to throw myself at him. I'm a sucker for men who are closed off because of a mysterious reason (I'm a bit like Florence Nightingale), so I really was attracted to his character. He for sure found the perfect woman for him in Simone, a woman with a will of steel, who doesn't take a no for an answer when needed. It was heartbreaking to read about his childhood, and I cheered for him when he decided to face his ghosts. As always, males tend to screw up, as did Van, but I loved how he solved his argument with Simone 😍  It really showed his commitment to her.

- The previous characters!!!!!! It was so great to meet some of them again 😍

So yes, absolutely read this book, you won't regret it... the only downside: if it's the first book you read of the Cold fury series, you might have to spend some moneys to buy the other books too😂
