Coen: A Pittsburgh Titans Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 27, 2022

Coen Highsmith was a league star, but he lost more than his team the day the Pittsburgh Titans’ plane crashed. Can he be saved from his downward spiral of guilt and regret to become the man he once was?

I had it all—a successful hockey career, the respect and adoration of the fans, a rotation of beautiful women warming my bed, and a feeling of self-worth and contentment with the direction of my life. But that all changed the day the team plane went down, taking my only chance of redemption with it. Now I’m left with the daily reminder of all my failures and my inability to correct them.

My new teammates are tired of my attitude and following my suspension, I hole up in a mountain cabin to get away from all of it. The isolation is exactly what I need to get out of my own head, and I’m beginning to think I could be content in this quiet forever.

Tillie Marshall isn’t the type of woman who would usually catch my attention, yet she manages to do so for all the wrong reasons. I’m here for the peace and seclusion but the quirky artist is hell-bent on destroying that by cutting down the trees that separate our properties so she can open a pottery studio. If it’s a fight she wants, it’s a fight she’ll get. I have the money and the time and no issues bringing her down through the court system.  While I see flashes of steely determination within her, I’ve found that being a jerk comes naturally these days and she won’t be hard to intimidate.

Unfortunately, that gorgeous and somewhat odd neighbor who has been causing me grief is creating another type of feeling within me. And once that spark is lit, Tillie displays a faith in me that for the first time since the crash I desperately want to believe. Now it’s time for me to step up and become the man—no, a better man than I once was.

OMG–I had hoped that Coen would have a satisfying redemption story after what we’d seen of him in the other books, but I never imagined it would be this awesome!

If you’ve been reading this series from the beginning, you’ve been right there as Coen slowly (maybe not so slowly? Definitely not quietly) lost his sh*t over survivor’s guilt and…we’re not sure what exactly else. The man’s been a train wreck that has the potential of causing a 20-car pileup that will somehow end up with everyone involved plummeting off of a cliff.

Really. The sense of impending disaster this guy has been giving off has been that bad, not to mention the absolute crap he’s been pulling on his team. It’s been hard to read.

Which makes this book all the sweeter in the end. I love Tillie because she’s an awesome heroine, but I freaking LOVE her because she’s Coen’s heroine. She does it. She gets his head out of his you-know-what and brings him back to the world of the living–pretty much literally–and she does it while wearing white granny panties.

At least I’m pretty sure she’s wearing them all the way through–they stop being mentioned as frequently, but she doesn’t really seem like the fancy underwear type. And goodness knows they’re working for her, so… 😉

Normally I would say that of course you can read series books in whatever order, and sure, you could absolutely start this series with Coen if you want. You do you. BUT this is one instance where I really think that Coen made such an impression in the first three books that to *really* get the full impact of his redemption arc you need to have seen him at his worst. So do yourself a favor, and start this series at the beginning. I promise, you won’t be sorry.
