5 Star Review: Legend by Sawyer Bennett

Legend by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adore this series and these hockey stars. Each player has a unique story to tell and with each subsequent book, I find myself becoming even more captivated by the Arizona Vengeance.

I was completely surprised by the direction that Legend’s story took. I expected a heated will-they/won’t-they romance between Legend and his plastic-pink-flamingo-loving neighbour, Pepper, but I couldn’t have foreseen a story involving an unexpected baby. 

When Legend finds a baby on his doorstep he is stunned but immediately steps up as a father. Having only known the baby’s mother for a short time, he is shocked when he realises that he had left her pregnant and alone. Not knowing what to do with the baby, Legend turns to his frustrating but gorgeous neighbour, Pepper, who immediately steps up without fuss. It doesn’t take long before both Legend and Pepper find themselves jointly raising little Charlie and bonding over Charlie results in them becoming romantically involved. 

As expected in all good romance stories, it’s not long before drama hits as Charlie’s mother arrives on the scene and suddenly, Legend, Pepper and Charlie find their new life at risk as Charlie’s mother wants her baby back. 

The ongoing characters and team story continues in the background of this book and, as expected, they welcome Charlie into their lives with love and gifts. 

There is an underlying sadness which continues in this story and that relates to Tacker’s emotional state of mind as he continues to struggle on after the death of his fiancee. Despite crying out for Tacker’s story, the next book will be Dax’s and I can’t wait to read it.

The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.

Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.

Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.

As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .

Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.
