Publisher's Summary

Are you ready for Kane Bellan’s story?  

I have a problem. Potential problem? I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal. There’s this girl - isn’t that how it always starts? - and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue - she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.  

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel-weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend, and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.  

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers that keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.  

It feels like the game just went into overtime and I’m on the verge of either the biggest win or most disappointing loss of my life. And losing is never an option.

Love is a Marathon

Friends to lovers is my catnip and I couldn't wait for Kane and Mollie's story. I really enjoyed this mix of sports romance and a bit of romantic suspense. It was great to see the crossover between this series and the Jameson Force series. I loved how well Kane and Mollie knew and understood one another. They have been best friends for 10 years and it was such a natural progression for them into something more. The story was a bit predictable, but the low drama and high heat was just what my heart needed. I'm definitely intrigued by the rest of the Vengeance's second line now, especially Riggs and Jett, and am looking forward to Jim Steele's second chance romance next! Lessa Lamb is a new to me narrator and I thought she was really wonderful as Mollie. Her male and female voices were great and she had good range/variety as she voiced the different characters. I've listened to a few other titles by Jeremy York and he always gives a solid performance. I'm not sure he truly fit Kane's carefree personality, but it was still an enjoyable listen. Kane is book 8 in the Arizona Vengeance series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone. Characters from the previous books do appear throughout though and the series runs on a continuous/concurrent timeline.

Friends to lovers with a twist

I have loved listening to this series and could not wait to get my ears on Kane. The guys and gals of the Arizona Vengeance Series have all been great characters and I love how each new book keeps us posted on the previous characters we love so much. This is Kane and Mollie's story for love but it's so much more. They have been best friends for years. In college they tried for more but wasn't willing to risk their friendship so that has been they way it has been for the last ten years, that is until she shows up and he realizes he wants so much more. This book is a fast track to love that took a long time to get there. It has some danger that they wind up getting help from Jameson Force Security to resolve so we get a cross over of another great series. We get a glimpse into two new characters that I hope have books coming up and lots of love. This book is well written and keeps your attention and keeps you guessing at times as well. Jeremy York and Lessa Lamb did a great job as Kane and Mollie. I enjoyed listening to them from start to finish. I loved this book and highly recommend it. It is part of a series but it is a stand alone as well. You do not have to have read or listened to the previous books but they are all good too so I hope you do.

Fun, heartfelt, sexy, friends to lovers romance!

I loved this latest fun, heartfelt, sexy, friends to lovers romance in Bennett's Arizona Vengeance series. It felt like a fresh start as she moves to the second line of these sexy hockey players. This is Kane, and his best friend since college, Mollie's story. Mollie has an adventurous spirit as she explores the country with her dog writing about her travels, and experiences, on her travel blog. When she is attacked by a stalker, she goes to the only place she feels safe. Kane has enjoyed his life as a successful sexy single athlete, but when his best friend needs him, he instantly changes into protection mode. They reconnect and soon realize their feelings have grown into more. They decide to take a chance, and their chemistry is explosive! They are so cute and sweet together and Kane is so swoony as he stands up to the light ribbing he gets from his teammates and brothers. They accept her immediately along with the women who have grown close from previous stories. I love the camaraderie, and family feel of all these past and new characters. But when as Kane makes permanent plans, can Mollie put down roots when she has a free and adventurous spirit? This story also sets up other stories about Kane's friends and teammates. I am especially excited to find out more about Jim! I loved the performances by narrators Jeremy York, and Lessa Lamb. They portray each character with a perfect balance between fun & flirty, heartbreaking emotion, and sizzling passion flawlessly. They work so well together, conveying so much emotion in their performances, that they make this fun, sexy, and passionate story even more captivating. This series doesn't get old to me, I can't get enough of these sexy hockey players, and the women who challenge and love them!

Another great story

Kane and Mollie have been best friends for a long time. Mollie is a blogger and travels all over the world. She is very good at what she does and he calm and nice demeanor draws everyone in. Although Kane's focus is on hockey and being somewhat of newbie to the Vengeance, he still finds time to keep in touch with Mollie. Things take a turn for Mollie and she has shows up on Kane's door. Trying to keep things away from him but failing, Mollies fills Kane in on what is really going on in her life. The rollercoaster ride they will not embark truly test their friendship and where things need and should go. Kane and Mollie choose to allow those feelings they have been fighting for so long to be set free. I loved hearing Jeremy York and Lessa Lamb bring this story to life. They were great narrators and I can't wait for more stories from Sawyer and the Vengeance crew!

Friends + Lovers + Suspense = Great Listen

Sawyer Bennett's Arizona Vengeance series is one of my favorite Hockey series that i've been listening to. While friends to lovers isn't normally a favorite genre of mine, this was a well written and acted audio and it just sucked me right in. I was sick when I first downloaded this book and I fell asleep many times while trying to finish it, so it took me awhile to get it completed. I really enjoyed Kane and Mollie's story, I also appreciate the blending of Sawyer's other series Jameson Force security into this book. The added suspense elements really upped the story and enriched it to create a fully developed storyline. The suspense and romance were the right mix to keep you engaged and satisfied during through the whole book with no slowness that some books suffer from in the middle sections. The narrators Jeremy York and Jessa Lamb did an outstanding job, Jeremy's voice is so yummy it really adds to any book he narrates. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the series..

Great Read

Kane (Arizona Vengeance, #8) was a great read by Sawyer Bennett. Mollie, Kane’s best friend, show’s up at his door exhausted and scared. She had an incident with her ex and needs someone to protect her. Although they are just friends, Kane will do anything to protect her. Kane is getting ready to start the new hockey season but they decide to start a relationship. I really enjoyed Kane and Mollie’s story and can’t wait to read more by Sawyer Bennett.

Great friends to lovers story!

Kane and Mollie's story was truly heartfelt. You knew these characters deeply loved one another before things got hot between the sheets. They had been best friends for so many years, but they both always felt so much more for the other, they just had never acted on it. Watching these two cross that line and take their relationship to the next level was inspiring. I loved watching them build so much more! This is a great series and this is a great story! The narrators do a great job bringing this story to life. It feels like watching a movie and not listening to a book. Great job!

An age old tale with a breathtaking finish.

Bennett has done it again. Kane and Mollie came out the gate swinging and scored a knockout punch to my heart. York and Lamb take you inside of friendship full of surprise twists and heartbreaking longing. Friends for life, reevaluate the danger of falling in love. An age old tale with a breathtaking finish.
