Blog Tour - BENNETT by Brenda Rothert

Bennett (On the Line, #2)


Bennett Morse devotes his time to chasing two things: an NHL career and women. He’s the easygoing member of his three-man line on the Fenway Flyers, content to play the game he loves and soak up the female attention it brings – as long as it’s from a different woman each time. He learned the hard way that choosing only one leads to heartache. 

Newly single attorney Charlotte Holloway finds just what she needs in Bennett – a sweet, sexy man to ease the burn of her recent breakup. One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?

Bennett is the second book in the On The Line series and even though it is a standalone, I recommend reading Killian, the first book, before starting Bennett. Bennett’s story takes place alongside Killian’s story and answered my questions as to why we didn’t get a lot of him in the first book.  To me, he seemed secretive and made me want to know more about him.

Oh, in this book, we get all of him.  He’s your typical hockey player, who isn’t looking for a relationship.  He enjoys the freedom of doing what and who he wants.  He never thought a one-night stand would change everything he thought he wanted. Bennett has such a sad past but has a wonderful family.  I loved that he had so much support.

Charlotte has recently become single.  She dumped her boyfriend after he stole a job right out from under her.  What a jerk he was!  She treated him a lot better than he deserved.  She is one independent woman who knew what she did and didn’t want in her life.  Deciding to head to the bar for a little fun, she never thought the hot and sexy man would rock her world, and even her entire life.

As sparks fly and the sheets become scorching, Bennett feels a connection to her and I immediately fell in love with him.  Bennett is so tender and has a huge heart. I enjoyed seeing him begin to realize he wants more from a woman. Unfortunately, Charlotte doesn’t feel the same.  One night is all she wanted.

Little did they both know that one night changed their world more than they ever imagined. As months pass and they cross paths again, Bennett soon realizes his one-nighter is his team player’s little sister and what a can of worms he opened with that.  It’s not easy for him at all but I felt so bad for him because you could tell he had deep feelings for her.

I won’t go into any more detail because it will reveal too much of the story.  This book is a quick read that had a lot of emotions throughout the book.  The characters are well written and it’s a book that is easy to understand.  You get right to the point of the story without it being long and boring.  I was pulling for Bennett and Charlotte the whole time and if you’re looking for a hockey series that is entirely different from any other series, then I recommend this 4 star book.

ON SALE NOW for .99¢ for s limited time! 



Killian Bosch knows he’s his own worst enemy – he just doesn’t give a damn. The star forward of a minor league hockey team, he’s unstoppable on the ice. His reckless behavior, devil-may-care attitude and complete disregard for consequences have made him a major source of headaches for the Fenway Flyers’ brass.

But the new Flyers owner is more steel than brass. Sidney Stahl is a disciplined woman who parlayed earnings from a college job into a real estate empire. She’s determined to transform the Flyers from marketing nightmare to hockey powerhouse. Once she gets Killian in line, she knows the rest of the team will follow his lead.

The seduction of his sexy new team owner is a challenge too forbidden for Killian to resist. Sidney plays into his attraction as a means of controlling him, but soon finds that she’s the one surrendering. It’s all on the line as Killian and Sidney are forced to choose - business or pleasure?
