Van (Cold Fury Hockey, #9) by Sawyer Bennett
Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as a loner, quiet and very private person. For him it is better that than everyone knowing the truth. He suffered enough growing up with an abusive father. Now he is playing successfully with the Carolina Cold Fury and rooming with Lucas Fournier. It is then that Simone Fournier, Luc's sister, appears in his life and change everything! She is stubborn, feisty and deep inside a really good girl who is trying to find her way. This couple is pure combustion and frankly so far one of my favorites from the Cold Fury (Alex is still my favorite). Van has a lot of serious troubles and Simone is his perfect match. This is an edgy, sexy romance with a lot of emotional scenes and if you haven't read any of the Cold Fury's books I highly recommend them.
