Alex: Cold Fury # 1 by Sawyer Bennett: Interview, Review, & Giveaway

USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett scores big-time with the first novel in a sexy new series hot enough to melt the ice.

Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.

As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.

What is your favorite part of the story, Alex? 
I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I have two favorite parts. The very last chapter which was inspired by one of my favorite movies and includes an incredibly romantic gesture. Also the Epilogue, which is also incredibly creative and romantic, and reminded me of something that had happened in my own life. That’s all I’ll say about that!!!
How long did it take you to write Alex?
Alex didn’t go as quickly as some of my other works, but only because I was writing it around the time me and my husband adopted our first child, a baby girl that we brought home at the end of January. So I was writing part time. I think it might have taken me about 6 weeks to write, when normally, I can knock out a manuscript in a few weeks.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Nix Caldwell from Off Limits. He’s my favorite all time character, having been tragically damaged by war, and then incredibly redeemed by the love of his life. He’s just the perfect man, to me. Plus, he’s a former Marine and they know how to survive, and um... yeah, he’s really, really hot so life on a deserted island with him would be good.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
I think I would be absolutely best friends with Alyssa from Make It A Double in my Last Call Series. She’s strong, feisty and independent, and she loves animals, as do I. I built a lot of her character based on me and my passions.
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
While I have found great joy in writing all of my books, my favorite by far was writing the Legal Affairs series. I loved it for a few reasons. First, I wanted to write something that had a little more steam than what I normally write, and I wanted to interject some humor as well. Secondly, I wanted to be able to write something using my experience as a trial lawyer. The follow up book, Confessions of a Litigation God, was equally as fun, and that’s because it was totally in the male POV, and honestly... I like writing that more than the female POV!
What books have most influenced your life?
This is a great question and I’ve never been asked it before. I’m a trial lawyer and that career path was heavily influenced by To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Atticus Finch is my absolute hero. He’s what I aspire to be as,  not only a lawyer, but as an empathetic human being.
What's your favorite book-turned movie?
All of the Harry Potter books/movies!!!
What is your favorite thing about sports romances?
I love the fantasy of it. I mean, what woman doesn’t want a hot, professional athlete? You have the gorgeous body, the celebrity, the excitement surrounding him.

I love interacting with readers. They can reach me at:
