A second chance may be just what James Steele needs…
I might be one of the older players on the Arizona Vengeance, but I like to think that also makes me one of the wisest. Or at least I used to.
Turns out, I’ve been a bit selfish. I’ve been married to hockey and my team for years, which hasn’t left much time for my actual wife, Ella. Now I’m juggling a separation I never wanted, the pressure of being a single dad to our teenage daughter, and the career I sacrificed it all for.
While my game on the ice might be on fire, the game in my personal life is clearly lacking, as evidenced by the fact I just saw my wife on a date with another man. If I have any hope of saving the family I love, I need to re-prioritize, and fast. So it’s time for me to get back to fundamentals, just like I did when I learned how to play hockey. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and romancing my wife is a challenge I am very much looking forward to.
Time to put on my game face, because I’m in it to win it.

STEELE: AN ARIZONA VENGEANCE NOVEL by Sawyer Bennett
Steele: An Arizona Vengeance Novel by Sawyer Bennett is the ninth book in the Arizona Vengeance series.
Jim Steele is the second line left winger on the Arizona Vengeance and his hockey game is on fire…..too bad his marriage is also on fire and quickly going down in flames. It’s been six months since his wife, Ella, asked him to move out. She feels he puts more time and effort into everything else except her and their 13 year old daughter, Lucy. To say this was an eye opener to Steele is an understatement…..especially after he sees Ella out on a date with another man. This kicks Steele’s butt into gear to after what he really wants most in the world….his wife and daughter!
Ella is cautious at first but decides to give Jim a chance to try and win her back. As Jim starts the wooing process, Ella starts to see signs of the man she first fell in love with. Just when you think these two are going to find their way back to each other, real life gets in the way. It will take a huge leap of faith for these two to find their happy ever after again but they finally do.
I just loved Steele. He deep down really loved his wife and daughter, he just didn’t realize that he wasn’t showing them that anymore. I really enjoyed watching him woo Ella. It was fun and flirty and gave you all those good feels. Overall I really loved this story of second chances and loved their happy ending.
