Van (Cold Fury Hockey #9) by Sawyer Bennett

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

4.5 Cold Fury Stars

I can't get enough of this series. Seriously, I don't know how Ms. Bennett continues to make each book in this series (and her others!) better and better. The Cold Fury boys are back and now it's the mysterious and very moody Van's turn.

Van Turner has a reputation off and on the ice as rough and doesn't give a f*** about anything. He just gets through by hanging out with his teammate when feels he needs to and then is loner. He keeps to himself, because he has a dark, secretive past that he doesn't want to get out.

Simone Fournier is the little sister two of the Cold Fury players and ends up "moving" in with Lucas, who happens to be roommates with Van. Simone is trying to figure out her life, what she does know is that she has no more interest in attending her Ivy League school and also found an interest in her brother's roommate/teammate. 

Simone is a little spitfire that takes no for an answer, especially when it comes to Van Turner. There's something about the moody man, that Simone wants. But Van wants nothing to do with Simone--even though the temptation is there!

What I love about Simone's character is that she comes off as the sweet, innocent little sister, but the girl is a vixen! She's funny, determined and even though she doesn't know what she wants to do with her life, she makes ends meet, by not relying on her famous brothers. 

Van and Simone are explosive together and I mean that in a steamy, passionate way. Their banter is hilarious and are perfectly matched, even they are so opposites!
