Garrett by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Carolina Cold Fury star hockey player Garrett Samuelson enjoys having a good time. He also has a reputation as a ladies man. However, when he meets Olivia Case, he is intrigued and wants to get to know her better. Unfortunately, Olivia has cancer and is uncertain of pursuing a relationship.
I loved this book! It was absolutely touching and heartfelt.
Garrett won me over in the first book of the series, Alex. I was really excited to hear his story. He is a great friend to Alex. He is strong and has an outstanding personality. Sometimes he is not given enough credit, but he is a good man with a big heart.
Olivia is a sweet heroine. I love her artsy disposition. My heart went out to her for all she endured. I liked that she learns a lot about herself throughout this novel.
The story was very convincing and believable. The couple struggle with their relationship and their situations. They act justifiably, and your heart goes out to them.
Garrett was one of those books I just could not stop thinking about. It had a serious emotional impact on me. One of my closest friends is a nurse who administers chemotherapy. I kept thinking about this story and told my friend that she just had to read this book. Some of the scenes in this novel can definitely be appreciated by anyone who has experienced or knows someone that has undergone chemo.
I am not going to give anything away. One of my favorite scenes is when Olivia’s best friend/boss, Stevie, goes with her to chemotherapy and has a little surprise for her. The experience is priceless. Olivia is lucky to have incredible friends in her life.
Garrett is a well-written and thought-provoking novel. It is a story about living life to its fullest and not giving up. Sawyer Bennett is an incredible writer. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys contemporary romances. While you could read this book as a standalone, I recommend reading Alex first. You would be further invested in the characters making you appreciate the story more.
