Marek: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel
Release Date: May 22, 2018
Synopsis:Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold—and it’s not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It’s the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he’s going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what’s his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.
Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That’s why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that’s why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen’s not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren’t always what they seem. . . .

This is the 11th book in the Cold Fury series and while each book is a stand alone there may be times that characters from the earlier books make guest appearances so you may have a few spoilers, but it can be read without reading the others. We get to see how this book starts in Reed’s book so I was excited for this one to come out to know how it was all going to go.
What can I say, I love this series and Marek and Gracen’s story didn’t disappoint. Of course there were plenty of times I wanted to slap the characters for their behaviors. Sure they each made mistakes and learning to overcome these mistakes and figure out how to move forward wasn’t easy for either one of them. There were many times that they just so frustrating that I found myself yelling at them as well as celebrating with them. Of course there were a couple moments that had me all emotional over what was happening, too. I found this book was mainly about the two of them trying to figure out how to deal with things now that they have a second chance together.
I am hoping that this is not the end of the series, but a part of me is worried it may be since we didn’t have something going on with one of the other players as usually do near the end of each of the other books, but there is the Stanley Cup which they could win for the third year in a row. Maybe that is what she is planning for her next book, one that is more of a compilation of all the Cold Fury in one book. Regardless of what will be next, I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
