Waiting on Wednesday | Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights an upcoming book release that I'm looking forward to. This week I'm sharing with you the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey series, Garrett by Sawyer Bennett. This book is set to be released on February 17th, 2015 by Loveswept.


Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

***

Why am I looking forward to reading Garrett? When I read the first book, Alex, I really enjoyed the story and characters - Garrett being one of them. His personality was so different from Alex's that he immediately drew my attention. I can't wait to see how things work out for him when he meets Olivia. I love seeing the differences between the mask he shows the world and his true face when with the woman he loves. How will he change? Will they get a HEA? Or will secrets tear them apart? I'm just a sucker for a really good romance and Garrett has all the makings to fit that description.


You can get Alex for 99 cents and preorder Garrett for $2.99 on Amazon!

  2. Okay my stupid phone just killed my comment and I have to write it again. Grrr...
    I'm always a little bit embarrassed when I'm buying books with a sexy Cover because I always think these books should've a Cover that reflects more than ..... Pure Hotness :D but I will read this book because I'm a stupid little girly who loves romance. I'll get that under control but not anytime soon... :)

    1. LOL! You could always buy them online, that helps curb any embarrassment I would feel buying books with "Pure Hotness" covers (<---I love that description, by the way).

  3. Interesting pick :) I met this author at Edinburgh Author Event last year but I have never read anything by her yet. But she is on my "to-read-author" list so hopefully I get to reading her books soon.

  4. Covers like that always make me wary, but the romance seems fun, I'll have to check it out :)

    1. When I'm picking a book, I first look for a cover that draws my attention for some reason, and then I read the story to see if it's something that I would like. If a book doesn't have both of these, I probably won't read it. Although I will make an exception if I like a story but not the cover.

  5. This book is new to me. I have to admit when I saw the cover I was a bit wary but the short descriptions actually sounds really good. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention.
    Thanks for stopping by my post!

    1. I look at cover first, but it's really the story of a book that is the deciding factor in whether I'll read it or not. In the case of Garrett, I had already read the first book in the series, so I already knew what kind of story it would be. Thanks for visiting!

    1. I've been reading more contemporary lately, so that's one of the reasons I chose Garrett this week. Plus, I loved the first book Alex, so I wanted to continue the series.

    1. Definitely read the first book Alex before reading this one. Garrett is introduced and you get a feel for his character in the first book.

  15. Sounds a bit different from the normal mold of complications in the romance genre. I hope you enjoy it :)

    1. It's a little different in some aspects to others, but also similar. But most books are like that. The always have at least one thing that sets them apart.

  17. I like reads like these to read before I go to sleep, they tend to be short and sweet and this one sounds like a good read. The naughty guy showing more of himself to someone who's going to keep him in line! Thanks for sharing Christina :)
