We meet Marek Fabritis another rising star fro The Fury what he doesn't know that his life about to a complete change. When Gracen Moore comes back into his life she comes with an adorable three year old little girl named Lilly.
Gracen & Marek once a couple but when life choices that you think moving on is the best scenario but when you are on the cusp of changing it the past comes back at full force and everything changes in a instant. You will feel a lot of intensity between Gracen & Marek. The emotions will fall from the pages the hurt, the passion, the mistakes and maybe even the love. You can't help fall for this couple and cheer them on and watch them hopefully find that HEA.
Of course, I was chomping at the bit to read Marek’s story after what happened to him in Reed’s story. Man, Marek ticked me off at the beginning. Where I can totally understand where he was coming from when it comes to Gracen, his daughter Lilly deserved so much more. Luckily, Marek has friends who aren’t afraid to call him on his bull so it wasn’t long before Marek stepped up to the plate.
As much as I wanted to dislike Gracen for what she did, for the most part I liked her. She is a good mom who made some very stupid and hurtful decisions. I don’t really understand why nobody brings up the fact that her parents didn’t push the issue a bit more, especially when it came to Marek’s parents. Of course, Gracen is an adult and was going to make her own choices, but it almost seemed like there was little to no input from her parents who should have been helping to guide her a bit more. Anyway, as I said, I mostly liked Gracen. There was a bit toward the end, a fight Gracen and Marek have, that made me dislike her the way I thought I would through the whole story. She said some terrible things. Sure, so did Marek…but his hurtful words were his defense mechanism kicking in after he felt attacked my her.
Speaking of that fight, I love the matter of fact way Marek’s dad put that into perspective. It’s great how Marek doesn’t want to believe what his dad has to say at first. It can’t be as simple as that, can it? But the man has been married a long time and gives good advise.
While I don’t see that there are any more Cold Fury books on tap at this time, it seems we’ll be getting plenty more hockey from Sawyer Bennet. In August the first Arizona Vengeance book is due out, looks like it will be an expansion team for the hockey gods Ms. Bennett writes about. I cannot wait!

Marek is the 11th book in Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury Hockey series and while it helps to read all of the books in the series, this title can standalone and you don't lose anything. What I can say is after reading the previous book in the series, Reed, I was more than ready to get my hands on this one based on the way Reed's book ended.
Marek Fabritis has had two loves in his life, hockey and his ex-girlfriend Gracen Moore. However when it came down to it years ago, he chose hockey over Gracen. When he gets an anonymous email saying that she's getting married, there is no way that Marek can let that happen, so he sets out to stop the wedding. Not only is it about not wanting her to end up with someone else, he doesn't want anyone else to be the father figure to his three year old daughter. A daughter that he has just learned about. A daughter he has missed three years with.
When Marek brings Gracen and Lilly to North Carolina to live with him, you can cut the tension between the two adults with a knife. As Marek begins to get to know Lilly, he can't seem to get past the deception of Gracen not telling him she was pregnant. Conversely, Gracen is still deeply wounded by the fact that Marek chose hockey over her.
Will the years these two have been apart given them the maturity and clarity to try to make it work between them or is it all they can hope for to co-parent their daughter and move on apart from one another? And, will another secret that Gracen is harboring end up causing more trouble than anyone can imagine?
I really enjoyed the "realness" of this book. It was easy for me to see how the feelings of the characters could happen in the real world and how they both had to really take stock of themselves, their feelings and the best interests of their young child. Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite authors and this is one of my favorite series and this was certainly another strong offering!

Not really sure how I felt about Marek’s book.
It’s a second chance/secret baby romance.Read more
