The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck because it’s focused on the woman he just married to save her life.
Hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport, you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.
Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeously hot woman who makes it damn hard to focus on anything but her.
What’s even more shocking is that I never once hesitated when I told her we were getting married. Ordered her actually.
More surprising yet is that she didn’t hesitate in accepting my proposal. Because she’s in trouble and she really didn’t have any choice.
So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

This series just keeps getting better and better!
This series just keeps getting better and better! Leaving off at the end of the last book, Dax found out his best friend was dead due to a mugging, and rushed to meet up with Regan, said dead best friend’s sister and only living relative. On top of dealing with her brother’s death, due to a health condition, she has left him broke and is now unsure how she will continue treatment. In steps Dax, who after finding this out decides the best way to resolve it all is to get married. Of course there is attraction to each other on both sides, and much of the book is the two dealing with those feelings in combination with how Regan’s brother would feel about the two of them had he been alive. The two navigate through misunderstandings and other issues, but the two work together to break through on top. Per usual, I loved the storyline and the flow of the book, but something I also love about Sawyer’s writing is that within these books she touches on the characters of the previous books, letting their stories continue, while also introducing us to characters that will be the subject of future books, giving us familiarity so the readers then can’t wait for those books to be released. She’s a genius, and of course I can’t wait for Tracker’s book after getting to know a surface story for him from the previous books!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Dax is another book in the Arizona Vengeance Series. Dax, a hockey player, steps up to help his deceased best friend’s sister. After her brother’s death, Regan is left without medical insurance for her chronic disease. In comes Dax, offering to marry her. He is sensitive with a heart of gold. I love the camaraderie of the hockey team, how they are always looking out for each other. Very heartwarming story.
