ERIK, book two in Sawyer Bennett's Arizona Vengeance series is here!

A ladies' man with the matching reputation who never had anything serious. That's until Blue, a girl he come into contact with regularly, as she is the flight attendant of the team's plane, but hates his guts. Because that's new. There just can't be a girl that can resist his good looks, his charms and his fun and flirty ways - can there? But Blue kinda has her reason for reacting the way she does, seeing as she and him have met several years before, only the jerk cannot even remember her...

The foundation stone for their story was already provided in the first book, where we saw Blue not exactly liking even the idea of Erik. A concept utterly new to the poor guy - a guy who usually always, always gets what he wants...

It's a wonderful fun and flirty, sexy and emotional new sports romance with not much drama or angst going on. It's just about a type of enemies to lovers story that already included moments that hinted at the upcoming books. It was a bit too long for our couple alone, but seeing this series as a whole it didn't matter much to me but only ramped up my excitement about the stories to come!

It was great seeing Erik growing up and owning his past behavior and apologizing. Blue really give him a run for his money but she isn't doing it to toy with him, she truly doesn't want to be with him but their chemistry is undeniable and the way he is with her brother makes it just as hard to deny. 

An enjoyable read and definitely want to get more of these guys.

Loved this

Erik is the hot shot playboy of the team. He keeps hitting on the team flight attendant, Blue but she wont give him the time of day. Over time Erik starts to break her walls down but then finds out why she is so against him. will he be able to get her to forgive him?

The amazing part of this story is Blue's brother Billy who is in a wheelchair and is a major factor to everything Blue does... Will Erik accept Billy and accept that he is #1 in Blue's life?

Loved watching their relationship and see the ups and downs. Also loving Dax, Legend and Tacker and can't wait for their stories.. you get some glimpses at their lives even more in Erik's book

I liked Erik’s story
He has been a bad boy, but he’s older now and he has his eye on Blue, she turns him down every chance she can get. He has no idea what Blue has against him but he’s determined to find out and make her his. 
After reading about Eric in Book 1 it’s nice to see that he’s not a douche and he does have charm and cares for others. And in the five years they were apart it seems he did a little maturing and has become determined to try for a second chance.
A very enjoyable story, love Sawyer’s hockey reads. Great fun, and nice and spicy, Looking forward to the next instalment, Legend and Pepper, their tale sounds like it will be a hilarious read, two very strong characters.

A hot hockey player, a flight attendant with a secret and a twist you won't see coming. This story is layered and will leave you wanting more from this series. Another hot hockey read with heart.

Thankfully Sawyer has more in store for us.

I love Sawyer Bennett's Arizona Vengeance series, so it's no surprise that this was a hit for me. Blue and Erik have scorching hot chemistry but clashing personalities, so they go toe-to-toe anytime they are around each other. Blue is strong and sassy and she puts the cocky, rakish Erik in his place when he tries to seduce her. She makes him want to reconsider his commitment-phobic ways, especially when he meet's Blue's brother. Erik has lots and lots of steam and a ton of heart.

4.5 Swoony Stars ⭐️ 

Erik is the 2nd installment in the Arizona Vengeance spin-off series. If you loved the Carolina Cold Fury, this new batch of hockey players will steal your heart. Erik and Blue had a very rocky start but once the walls were breached, they had a great connection and it was so easy to read and watch their relationship progress. This story was so full of heart and it was beautiful to see the relationship develop between Erik and Billy too. As always, it was beautifully written and had me hooked from the start. I can’t wait for Legend and his feisty neighbor up next! And I have a feeling when we get to Tacker, he is going to break my heart!

Another great hockey series by Sawyer Bennett. The dynamic between Blue and Erik is off the charts and she challenges him in a way no one has before. They will have you glued to each page waiting to see what happens next.

Sawyer Bennett just keeps on impressing me time and time again with these Hockey romance books. Some would think after reading the Cold Fury series that you may get bored with more Hockey books... but that is so not the case. I have loved the first 2 in the Arizona Vengeance series and can't wait to get my hands on the rest! Bishop was the first book in the series and although these can be read as a standalone I would highly recommend reading his book too. I would give this book a 4 stars and highly recommend to others. 

Erik is the premiere defense-man and elite enforcer for the Vengeance and he has finally found his groove playing with the team.. finally his life is where he wants it, but one problem he wants Blue... and she wants nothing to do with him...

Blue has responsibilities.. ones that keep her super busy working multiple jobs to care for her disabled brother, and the last thing she needs is some play-boy wanting into her pants... even if she wants it too no matter how much she fights it... the biggest problem is Erik doesn't remember breaking her heart in the past...

Can Blue forgive Erik and give him another chance? Or will it all end like it had before?

Get to one clicking to see what happens you don't wanna miss it! AND drum roll please... Legend's story is up next an boy oh boy is it going to be a whirlwind!

Erik is the second book in the Arizona Vengeance series, a second chance romance between a flight attendant and a pro hockey player, even though there’s a little detail about this “second” chance (no, I’m not going to spoil it!)…
Erik is a player, not just a hockey player, but a real player. He is the true definition of a ladies man, the puck bunnies love him and he never goes home alone, well at least until Blue…
Blue is  a sweet flight attendant, she used to be a party girl but she’s changed and had to take on a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. The last thing she needs is a serial dater like Erik trying to charm her…
Erik and Blue’s story is entertaining, their chemistry is amazing, I really liked how Blue kept ignoring Erik at first (there were some hilarious moments), their story is quite steamy but what I really loved about this book was the moments when the team bonded. Sawyer Bennett thrives on writing about hockey players, the game, the sense of loyalty between teammates, it’s absolutely amazing and I’m a huge hockey fan so I was definitely engaged in their story. Also, Erik surprised me a lot, I was kind of expecting him to be a little douchier and his behavior was refreshing. The secondary characters were amazing! I loved Legend, Dax,  Billy, Pepper (I have high hopes for Pepper) and Tacker… wow Tacker… I can’t wait for Tacker’s story! The only reason I’m not rating this book with 5 stars is because I felt that I was a little more interested in what was going on with Legend, Pepper and Tacker (I think I have a crush on Tacker!) than with Erik and Blue’s relationship. Recommended to anyone who loves a steamy hockey romance.

Erik. Hot... Fine... Erik...

This was an ok read. The story started off strong but towards the end the story line became a bit predictable. Erik one of the star players and the girl that he did not remember. Blue felt jilted after she hooked up with Erik. Erik did not remember Blue and due to that she has harbored bad feelings towards him. 

Towards the end I started skipping through the story. The antics with Blue became a bit boring.

Blue annoyed me some but in the end she redeems herself. I absolutely loved Erik. I wish every man was like him. He was so sweet and generous and hot as #@*& if you know what I mean... Loving the Vengeance and can't wait for more!!
I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and voluntarily left my review!

Book 2 of the Arizona Vengeance can be read as a standalone but is so much better when read as part of the series. I remembered the uncomfortable chemistry between Blue and Erik in 'Bishop', so I was very excited that they were the next book in the series. This book surpassed my expectations for their story and I loved the challenge Blue gave Erik for a date. Highly recommend this series and this book. Can't wait to see what is in store for Legend next!

Ladies, yes you, this book is phenomenal. I LOVE when a bad boy gets his head out of his rear posterior and learns to fly straight!!! Blue and Erik, phenomenal couple, they are definitely made for each other.  Well at least after Blue realizes that Erik is not the as… donkey he used to be.  Sorry, have to keep this PG. I love this story.  I really enjoyed watching Erik have to work to win Blue back.  You see, he does not remember meeting Blue before… at least not the first time, or even the third time he sees her on the Vengeance plane where Blue is one of the flight attendants. He can’t figure it out why Blue is always giving him the cold shoulder.  So when Blue tells him before she would even think about dating him she tells him has to get his…. Sorry ladies, not spoilers.  I will say this…. It was VERY painful, and he took a lot of flack from his team mates. 
I think one of my favorite parts in the book does not have anything to do with Blue and Erik.  It pertains to Legend another player on the Vengeance team.  If you are a love hockey and are a fan of the Penguins and/or Golden Knights, you will know what I am talking about when you read this book.  Again, sorry ladies, I am giving nothing away.  If you want to know, you will have to read this spectacular book.
OK, now I am conflicted.  I have been a fan of Ms. Sawyer’s Cold Fury series from the beginning, OMG this series is just as great, if not… no, I can’t quite say better…..yet!!!
If you like a great hockey romance, then this book is definitely for you.  YOU!  WILL!! LOVE!!  THIS!! BOOK!!
Thank you for reading my review.

How do you overcome a horrible first impression? Especially when you don't even remember it. That is exactly what Erik must accomplish with Blue.

Blue has a mountain of responsibility on her shoulders and no where to turn for help. Enter Erik.

It takes time but eventually Erik wins Blue over until a new tragedy hits. Will he be able to fix this lapse in judgement? Will Blue forgive him? And what is Tacker's connection to all of this? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for the next installment of The Arizona Vengeance.

I love a good hockey book and Erik was no exception to that. Sawyer Bennett has a way with hockey romance that just keeps me coming back for more. You get your first glimpse of Erik and Blue from Bishop's book so my interest was definitely there. I just didn't know how much I was going to love it!

Erik is the team player and he knows it, so does Blue. Watching these two work through their battles and differences was probably my favorite piece to this story.

This is the second book in the “Arizona Vengeance” ice hockey series. I already love these guys as much as the guys from Sawyer’s  “Cold Fury” series. This is the story of Erik and Blue. Blue is the flight attendant on the team plane, Erik has an instant attraction to her. However, Blue has no time for Erik. They’ve met before, while he does not remember their meeting, Blue came away with a less than stellar opinion of Erik. He is a sexy, bad boy with a heart of gold who works hard to get to know Blue despite her initial antagonism towards him. They have great chemistry in and out of the bedroom and it is entertaining to watch as their relationship evolves. Also, intertwined in the story is a varied cast of supporting characters who really enhance the story. I loved this book, so if you are looking for a well written, sexy read this is the book for you.

I was anxious to get my hands on Erik and Blue’s story since we met them in Bishop. Erik is a professional hockey player playing for the Arizona Vengeance. He’s been know to be a player off the ice as well. Blue is a flight attendant for the teams private jet. She was a sassy little thing that wouldn’t give Erik the time of day. I was interested in seeing why she was always so short and snippy with him. When I read her reason I totally understood. This couple quickly fell into a relationship and I enjoyed every minute of it. I LOVED how he treated her brother! Of course, he was great to her too. He may have been a former player, but when he got the right girl he became a one woman man. I adored their story and can’t wait to read the next one in the series. I really, really can’t wait to get Tackers story.

Love a second chance romance.....this is another great hockey romance from Ms. Bennett. I love these hot hockey stories with cocky jocks who fall hard for their women.

Your gonna love Erik. It was funny, charming and it'll make you a fan of the whole series.
You'll love all the characters you meet and their interaction with one another.

Erik is a well known hockey player, the strength and determination that made him so great on the ice transferred over in his attempt to befriend and woo the reluctant Blue. 

Blue seemed liked a tough cookie, the more we got to know her the more we realized how kind, compassionate, and centered she really was. There was so much to love about her character that she quickly won me over.

I am a huge hockey fan and a huge Sawyer Bennett fan so obviously I adored everything about this book. But when you threw in Blue and her brother I was completely smitten. I am a teacher of students with special needs so this just hit even more close to home for me. 

I seriously loved everything about this book. It was hot, sweet, sexy, and fun. We got to see so much of all of the new hockey hunks, but still had plenty of just Erik and Blue as well. I can't wait for the next book in this series! (5+ stars)
