Bishop by Sawyer Bennett Review

4 Smooches

Synopsis

Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.

But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.

Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.

Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

Review

I’ve been a longtime fan of the Carolina Fury series from Sawyer Bennett so I was excited for this new spinoff. Bishop is the first book in the Arizona Vengence series. Bishop centers around a misunderstanding after a one night stand.

I really enjoyed the majority of the book. I loved watching Bishop and Brooke’s relationship go basically from friends with benefits to truly deeply caring for each other. There were a few parts that I feel like the words Bishop says and what he means don’t exactly line up making him seem somewhat more misogynistic than I think his intentions was.

Overall, I really enjoyed this spin-off and can’t wait to see what is to come next.
