Reed Reed by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Another enjoyable story in the hugely successful Cold Fury Hockey series.

Reed was a bit of a quiet and unassuming character. I expected bravado but he came across as a sweet but insecure character. Living a relatively shallow life, with a line of Barbie-esque women spending an all too brief time in his company, Reed has never experienced love, until he meets the effervescent Josie.

When Josie unexpectedly bangs on his door thanks to Reed’s headboard banging against her bedroom wall, he finds a spitfire of a woman who is the complete opposite of one of his so-called Barbies. Josie, as Reed’s neighbour, knows he likes a certain type of women and as a result, gives all of his woman a Barbie-themed name.

Josie is a doctor working in emergency medicine at the local hospital and is the polar opposite to Reed, or so he thinks. Despite this, the duo quickly forms a friendship and Reed, who’s in the off-season, finds himself wanting to take care of Josie and ends up spending more time with her. Keen to take their friendship into unknown territory, for Reed, he doesn’t know how to make the next step with Josie. With Josie’s confidence though, they soon have a romantic break-through.

The story doesn’t really have any ups and downs to it until Reed starts to doubt the part he plays in Josie’s life and as a result, this was an easy to read story which was relatively short. The story was lacking in plot somewhat and didn’t have the same fast pace as other titles in the series. That said, this was still an enjoyable read. The build-up to Marek’s story looks to offer a much more complicated storyline though and I can’t wait to read it.
