If you don't know by know, I am obsessed with Sawyer Bennett and her books. She has seriously become of the those authors that I **ahem** stalk for upcoming new releases. And when I knew Ryker was getting a book, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Okay, before I started Ryker's book, I loved ZACK since he started my Sawyer Bennett obsession but after reading Ryker, I have to say that I am torn because Ryker gave Zack a run for his money.
Cold Fury's goalie Ryker Evans has two important goals that he wanted to accomplish. First, he wanted to give his team a chance to win the Cup and the second most important job is raising his two daughters. As a single father, his life was consumed with training, hockey, and his girls. His personal life was non-existent after him and his wife are in the process of a divorce.
Grayson Brannon is the new GM of Cold Fury. Her new positions has caused a stirred within the sports industry since people began questioning if she could be a GM in a male dominant sport and also of her analytical method of stats. On her first day job as GM, she instantly knew she had one supporter besides her father and that was Ryker Evans.
From the first moment, Grayson felt a kinship Ryker and likewise with him. Instantly, it didn't take long for them to form a friendship and a bond. Soon Ryker and Gray found themselves crossing the lines of employer and employee. Sparks of attractions and passion ignited such a fierce connection that they couldn't deny but they knew that they had to keep their relationship a secret since people would think she had favoritism. This secretive relationship was taking a tolll on their relationship since both of them wanted to be a normal couple. So when someone discovers their relationship, will Ryker's position be in jeopardy? And how will the public react and perceive Grayson's standing as GM?
Gray has to be hands down one of my favorite Sawyer Bennett's heroine. I might have a girl crush on her. Right off the opening pages, I fell in loved with her character. She had it all from beauty and brains. And to top it off, she had one of the most generous and beautiful hearts that I loved. She never played favoritism and did what was always best for her hockey team. And as for Ryker, he was just perfect. He was sweet, caring, understanding, patient, and a dirty-talker. I loved that this man took time to learn how to braid his daughter's hair. That alone, be still my beating my heart.
What can I say but I absolutely loved Ryker and Grey's relationship. I loved these two hard!!! As much as I loved Zack and Kate's story,Ryker and Gray's relationship made my heart flutter and race. I loved the deep connection and respect they had for each other. And to top it off, I love love how Ryker can be sweet and a dirty-talker all in a blink of an eye. But what made me fall in love with this book was that there was no long drawn out conflict or drama. The book just flowed at a perfect pace that reflected this couple.
So if you are a fan of office and single father romance then I highly recommend you to read this book!!! Be prepared to fall in love with Ryker and Gray as they embark and take you on a winning sweet contemporary romance!!!!

When I started Ryker, I didn’t expect much from it and out of all the guys Zack was my favorite, but after reading Ryker I’m not so sure anymore. Zack and Ryker are best buds and it’s really hard to pick which one is best. What I do love most about Ryker is he never plays, when he cares for someone he gives that person his all plus more. When his attraction for his new General Manager Gray Brannon can no longer be ignored, he acted on it and made it clear to her that he doesn’t do flings, that what was about to happen with them will be so much more. As Ryker and Gray’s new relationship starts, they are forced to keep it a secret. Gray being the new General Manager, it doesn’t look good for her to be in a relationship with one of the hockey players. Ryker never cared for secrets, he wanted to let everyone know who Gray belonged to..but for Gray he kept what they had a secret. Their relationship was hot and sexy behind closed doors, but in front of everyone they were just friends. Then there’s Ryker’s cheating ex-wife trying to make advances on him and threatening their relationship. How much can they take before they give up on the love they could have?
This was a real treat to read from the beginning to end. Ryker stayed real throughout the whole book, he was the man of his words and his heart. Also a great father to his daughters that adored him. This was a really sexy and sweet read and I enjoyed every page of it. Love it.
