After suffering a horrific injury that threatens to end his career, Baden Oulett is about to learn that sometimes a fresh start is just what the doctor ordered.
I worked my whole life to achieve one goal—play professional hockey. As part of the defending Cup champion Arizona Vengeance, I was living my dream until one split second decision destroyed it all. Instead of lacing up my skates and hitting the ice, I’ve spent my days in rehab and physical therapy just so I could walk again. When a coaching opportunity with the Pittsburgh Titans is presented to me, I find myself with a career I had never considered but which allows me to continue being part of the sport that I love.
While my injuries are physical, the same can’t be said for the woman I rescued. Suffering from wounds that can’t be seen, Sophie Winters has withdrawn from the world in fear and guilt. I didn’t know Sophie before that fateful night and have only met her once since, but I refuse to let her face her demons alone. Determined to be a friend, I support Sophie in the only way I know how… by simply being there.
Through our shared trauma, Sophie and I begin to find peace within one another. As we grow closer, what started as friendship becomes more intimate until our broken pieces become one. But can a love born of anguish endure, or will the pain of our past prove too much to overcome?
Loved Baden’ he did not disappoint.
Oh my goodness!!!!
All the things.
All the feelings.
All the heart strings.
This book is soooo good!
I have loved Baden since the vengeance when he defended a stranger being attacked!
He has recovered and has been offered a new opportunity in Pittsburgh. He decides to look up and check on the girl he saved, Sophie.
What ensues is perfection.
Lovable and relatable characters.
I loved this!
Best of 2022 shelf for sure!!
I absolutely loved this story of Baden and Sophie. It is so true and heartwarming to see them both become whole again and fall in love at the same time. This is a great beginning of another great series by Sawyer Bennett. I could jot put this down. Now I can’t wait for like three or four other books I this series because they all seem to my next favorite. I highly recommend getting to know the new rebuilt titans.
Love Baden but Sophie…
Arizona Vengeance is an INCREDIBLE series. The characters are relatable and draws you into the story. By the end, you feel like you’re part of the family. I highly encourage to read that series before this book.
Sadly, I’m disappointed in Baden. His character is inspiring, but I’m not a fan of Sophie. Some of her actions contradicted her fears and it was a bit tacky.
