Hendrix: A Pittsburgh Titans Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: June 6, 2023

Hendrix Bateman is one of The Lucky Three, a trio of players who were not on the Titan’s team plane the night it crashed. Feeling as if he’s been given a second chance, Hendrix is determined to make the most out of his life, but that doesn’t mean he’s not suffering from scars that can’t be seen.

When I lost my Titan brothers in the crash, it was a mixed bag of emotions. I was devastated and grief stricken, but I was also grateful to be alive. Yeah, that might cause a little—okay, a lot of—guilt, but now I’m determined to live each day as if it’s my last.

A night out with friends puts me in the crosshairs of Stevie Kisner—the devastatingly beautiful bar owner with a sharp tongue and a fire in her eyes that lets me know she has zero tolerance for guys like me. I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge, so I’m not dissuaded by Stevie’s tough as nails attitude or her big biker dad who looks like he wants to kill me. Fueled by too many shots and the raucous urging of my teammates, I set out to show Stevie I’ve got game both on and off the ice.

While I shouldn’t be looking for anything more than a good time, I can’t help but be captivated by Stevie. She’s cool as hell and we burn hot together. But the more I get to know her, the more I can tell she’s holding something in reserve, and let’s just say I’ve got some trust issues after my last disastrous attempt at a relationship. Now I need to decide if I’m going to let my past dictate my future or if I am willing to put my heart on the line to find out if Stevie is exactly what I think she is—my everything.

Another of the “Lucky Three” gets his story!

On the surface, Hendrix appears to be the most well adjusted of the surviving team members–he’s playing well on the ice, getting along with his teammates, and generally living his life to the fullest. He’s even dumped his toxic girlfriend, and is ready for hanging out with the guys and having a good time. But when he sees Stevie–a bar owner with an independent streak who is decidedly not impressed by Hendrix’s charm–he finds himself a new focus. When winning a bet earns him five minutes of her time, she’s charmed in spite of herself, and OMG is their developing relationship a lot of fun to watch.

But Stevie’s got a secret, and as it turns out Hendrix’s carefree demeanor hides some major trust issues. When it looks like she’s betrayed him, can he ever let her back in? Does Stevie even want him back, knowing that he so quickly believed the worst of her?

I loved watching Stevie and Hendrix fall in love–and seeing them torn apart was devastating. It was fairly obvious to this reader who the culprit was, which made seeing the two of them being so distrustful of each other just heartbreaking. Fortunately they eventually figure it out too, and their reconciliation was absolutely perfect for them and their HEA was beyond satisfying.

As always Hendrix would work fine as a standalone, but for series readers there’s plenty of interference–I mean, assistance–offered to our MCs by past (and future!) series characters.

Now…when can we expect book 8? 😉
