ZACK (Cold Fury Hockey #3)

ZACK                                                                   SAWYER BENNETT

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief ever since the car accident that left him a single dad and put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury and still crippled by emotional baggage, he’s in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son’s heart, Zack isn’t sure he’s ready for a woman’s touch—even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she’s hiding under those baggy clothes.

Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete’s body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life—and besides, he’s her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack’s wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.

MY REVIEW:
    This is a story about a man that plays hockey with the Carolina Cold Fury.  But four months ago, he and his girlfriend and the mother of his almost 4-year-old child, Ben, were in a car accident where Gina, was killed.  Zach Grantham blames himself.
     You see Gina, had taken off her seatbelt for some reason while the car was in motion.  He says he should have said something.  So, now he has to find a nanny to care for his son and his sister Delaney has a Wall Street job in NY to get back too.  She can’t stay forever.
     After being there off and on for nearly four all the four months she sees that all Zach is doing now is going out at night now getting drunk and going to strip clubs trying to zone out.  He’s trying to act as bad as he feels.  She decided to take matters into her own hands and screen applicants down to the final three.
     Zach was to check them out and then pick the finalist but he didn’t so she did and she had Ben’s help.  He loved she picked and once again Zach was a no show.  So, Delaney said that the new gal would be coming on Monday and he would have one week with her before he hit the ice the following week.  He was not happy and wanted her to stay.  She would not.  She said that she had her own job.  As much as it killed her she knew she would not be helping him if she stayed.
     He supposedly read over the girl’s application, a Kate Francis, so now it was Monday morning, sink or swim.  Zack was not feeling it.  When he opened the door to the new nanny he was not happy.  She was a nerdy bag lady.  He calls his sister and starts reaming her until she starts reaming him right back to the point where he is feeling like her employee.  Because she is qualified which pisses him off more.  The anger from the guilt that Ben likes her a lot and that it should be Gina caring for him and not this nanny really pisses him off.
     Then, one night his view changes when he sees her out of her baggy clothes and in fitted boy short panties and tank top thinking he was not home.  She had gotten ready for bed and had gone down for ice cream.  His horny man syndrome comes to life.  Something that four months going to a strip club trying to feel anything stir never seemed to stir.  Stir seeing her.  She made him feel something in that little bit of clothes what those ladies with nothing on couldn’t. 
     A nerdy nanny at night getting ice cream does it for him.  What is wrong with him.  Has he lost his mind is all he can think of?  Until he opens his mouth all was going well. 
     All through the story, he uses Kate as his whipping girl and she keeps taking it.  After awhile it really started to bother me.  It was like I kept feeling like saying have some self-respect.  Tell him off already.  Yet, she would forgive and then he’d do it again.
     I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:
