Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.
Hawke is a second chance romance which is not usually my thing, but i did enjoy this book. Although the storyline is not very complex and parts of the plot are a little predictable, that by no means made it less enjoyable it didnt pull me in as much as the other books in the series have previously.
I really like Hawke and Vale as characters, Sawyer writes her characters with realism making them feel like you could know them.
Hawke is a sweet loving story about two people with a bunch of resentment that comes from years of misunderstanding, we follow them on there journey as they work on finding there way through the misunderstandings of the past.
Hawke has a great knack for dirty talk and hot sexiness but there are some wonderful sweet moments making for a great mix of feeling while reading.
A lovely read from a great author.
