ARC REVIEW... GARRETT by Sawyer Bennett

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

GARRETT Goodreads

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
This Book Nerd Says:

This book.... AHHHHHHH!
I scream that in the fondest way by the way. 
While this wasn't my first book by Sawyer Bennett, it was my first time reading a book from the COLD FURY HOCKEY Series. Once again Bennett didn't disappoint. 
GARRETT is without a doubt a true love story. Garrett Samuelson is hockey player with a reputation for the quick turnaround of ladies in his life. He loves the freedom that comes along with being unattached, actively avoiding 'repeats' with these women. He's on a new team and loving the friendship he has with his teammate Alex Crossman (Alex COLD FURY #1 Goodreads). His life though revolves around his true love, Hockey. 
When he meets Olivia all he knows is he wants to know more about her. He wants to take her out on a date because everything about her is so much more than what he's used to. Olivia has a secret... 
She's certain her time with Garrett will be fleeting since he's not exactly known for his lasting relationships. But when he begins to feel all his feelings for her begin to override his aversion to an actual commitment to a woman, her secret becomes even more of a burden. 

I don't want to reveal anymore because in all honesty it only takes a few pages of reading before Olivia's secret comes to light for us as the reader. The rest is a sweet and utterly endearing love story about two people who weren't exactly looking for love but they found that they needed it all along.

I think we established that I am an emotional reader so I'll let you know that I did cry during this story. BUT the tears were completely happy tears. Seriously I was smiling like a complete crazy person reading the epilogue. I really really (really) enjoyed this book.  I totally couldn't put it down once I started it. I think a lot of women can relate to having that wanting to be the one to tame the bad boy fantasy lol, but what makes this even better is that Olivia doesn't have to "tame" Garrett. Garrett does us one better and tames himself when he realizes what he wants is to be with Olivia, that sharing his life with her would be far more exciting than the life he had been living without her. 
What was truly a bonus was that I loved each and every single secondary character as well. 
Now I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!

4 Stars for GARRETT!
