A second chance may be just what James Steele needs…

I might be one of the older players on the Arizona Vengeance, but I like to think that also makes me one of the wisest. Or at least I used to.

Turns out, I’ve been a bit selfish. I’ve been married to hockey and my team for years, which hasn’t left much time for my actual wife, Ella. Now I’m juggling a separation I never wanted, the pressure of being a single dad to our teenage daughter, and the career I sacrificed it all for.

While my game on the ice might be on fire, the game in my personal life is clearly lacking, as evidenced by the fact I just saw my wife on a date with another man. If I have any hope of saving the family I love, I need to re-prioritize, and fast. So it’s time for me to get back to fundamentals, just like I did when I learned how to play hockey. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and romancing my wife is a challenge I am very much looking forward to.

Time to put on my game face, because I’m in it to win it.


An emotionally charged reunion story! With book nine in her Arizona Vengeance hockey series Sawyer Bennett brings us a love story like no other. High school sweethearts who made it to the top only to begin to crumble with their teenage daughter looking on. This book brings it all. Pain, love, laughter and so much heart. Loved their story!

Jim Steele is a hockey powerhouse, but a great husband, not so much. If you read the previous book in the series you will be familiar with the storyline somewhat. Jim accepted the separation his wife demanded and is just sitting back watching his life pass him by … until he sees her out on a date with another man and realizes he hasn’t seen that smile and laughter on her face in such a long time.

Ella is easy to sympathize with. She loves her husband just as much today as she did when she fell for him all those years ago, but she can’t take the invisibility and loneliness of being his wife for one minute more. She needs to be seen and cherished again.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a pulse pounding hockey series that rewards you with lots of game action, but also brings love, turmoil and heart to every single book.
