Marek: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel
Release Date: May 22, 2018
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. . . .

I gotta tell ya I am a huge, huge fan of this series and could not wait to get my hands on this book!! I have loved all the books before and was ready to be lost in my own little world once I started and sadly, I just wasn’t. 😦
This one centers around Marek – who gets an anonymous email that his ex is getting married so what does he do? He crashes it!! Only he not only gets to be labeled as a wedding crasher but a Dad as well.
Yep! Years ago when Gracen broke up with him so he could pursue his career, she was actually pregnant. So now Marek is coming to terms with this fact he has a daughter and fights the feelings he still has for Gracen. While there were a few sex scenes, for some reason I just could not connect with these two being a couple and wasn’t feeling a strong chemistry between them at all!! And this made me sad!!! I love my steamy scenes.
I just felt like something was missing with this book. The storyline flowed but not well. Gracen and the reasons she stayed away were almost beat to death and again, the connection just wasn’t there as much as I would have hoped for. While this book didn’t rate up there for me, I am a huge fan of this series and look forward to reading more!!
