Bennett Morse devotes his time to chasing two things: an NHL career and women. He’s the easygoing member of his three-man line on the Fenway Flyers, content to play the game he loves and soak up the female attention it brings – as long as it’s from a different woman each time. He learned the hard way that choosing only one leads to heartache.
Newly single attorney Charlotte Holloway finds just what she needs in Bennett – a sweet, sexy man to ease the burn of her recent breakup. One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?
Swoon for Bennett
I fell in love with Brenda Rothert's writing when I read her first hockey series Fire on Ice, and it was nice to get back to that with Bennett. While it has been a while between the release of book 1, Killian, I was able to pick right back up with these characters like it had been no time at all. I absolutely LOVED Bennett! He is definitely what you want in a swoon worthy book boyfriend. Hot, athletic, and willing to do whatever it takes to be with the one loves, even if it means giving up his dream. Charlotte is hard working, career driven, and trying her best to not be her mother. I loved the interactions between Bennett and Charlotte and I loved that through the course of the book you see the effects they had on one another.
Bennett (On the Line #2) by Brenda Rothert
4 1/2 of 5 Stars
Brenda Rothert scores with Bennett the second book in the On the Line Series. Twenty-six-year-old Fenway Flyers left winger Bennett Morse has a one-night-stand with attorney Charlotte Holloway. However, one night will not be enough. Bennett is full of unexpected twists. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Fenway, Indiana. It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
Brenda Rothert does a great job with her character development. I like Bennett. He is sweet, loyal, caring, and smart. He has some fears from a previous relationship that affect him. I appreciated that Bennett is from Orland Park, Illinois. I am from Chicago. We have family in Orland Park and are often there for the holidays, so it was cool that Bennett spent Christmas in Orland. He has a cool family. Charlotte is a strong heroine. She doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s relationship footsteps. She doesn’t realize that she is nothing like her mother in that respect. She and Bennett have great chemistry.
The plot is well done. The conflict with Bennett’s roommate, Liam, was interesting. This story has multiple examples of what can happen with communication breakdowns. I love the scene with the peanut clusters. Bennett is a good man looking out for Charlotte. This is the first book that I have read by Brenda Rothert. I enjoyed her writing style. I will definitely read more books by her in the future and have already picked up some of her previous work.
