This was a novella that reads like a full-length novel! Sawyer Bennett gave us the beginnings of this story in Dominik’s book, and this one picked up right where Rafe’s story left off. This story was full of heartbreak and love.
When Rafe got the phone call that his Dad was dying from cancer, he made the ultimate sacrifice, he requested a trade from the team he loved, the Arizona Vengeance, to the Carolina Cold Fury. Now that Rafe is back home, he gets to spend time with his father, and spend time with the girl he left behind.
Calliope has no use for Rafe, he left her years ago broken-hearted and alone. She’s moved on, or so she thinks, but seeing Rafe again is a swift punch to the gut. The two still have feelings for each other, and as Rafe’s dad gets worse and worse, he realizes that he can’t let Calliope go again.
I love that we got to see the Carolina Cold Fury family again. I also love that we got to see a softer side of Wylde in this book, and I’m ready for his book to release!

As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury. Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected. Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again. Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Calliope by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given. **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.** ———————— About the author: Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.
