USA TODAY BESTSELLER • The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.
“You don’t have to like sports to love these books!”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.
Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.
As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .
Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.
Praise for Legend

  • Legend

    By EOBTripletMom
    Oh my. I just loved Legend and Pepper’s story. From enemies to lovers, Pepper and Legend sure know how to heat up the pages. Legend takes his surprise in stride and Pepper goes along for the ride. I was on the edge of my seat, for sure, at the end. You’ll not want to miss a moment of the Arizona Vengeance guys. 5 stars!!!

    I will admit I have enjoyed this series so far but I feel it doesn't have as much angst and adventure as the Cold Fury series has. Until now. I'm having a difficult time categorizing this book. Most would say it's Enemies-to-Lovers, but it's also single-dad/nanny, kinda. Pepper is not the nanny, but she is the person Legend depends on when it comes to his new daughter. We knew after reading Erik that these two would be explosive once they got over their "hatred", but the minute Legend finds a bundle of joy on his doorstep all is forgotten and forgiven. Yes there is mention of their disagreements in the past, but it's as if it was never a problem, yet we know it was a major problem for him. I truly enjoyed catching up, however briefly, with Erik and Blue and Bishop and Brooke and seeing their relationships progress. I can't wait to see more of each of these couples in future books.

    Saywer continues to find a way to keep this series fresh and unique with each book. I was up well beyond midnight reading and honestly would of stayed up later if I did not have somewhere to be in the morning. Dialogue is so important for me, I always want to read stories with characters that say things that make sense and flow with the storyline. Which is what you get here. Excited for more!
  • Best Vengeance yet

    Another 5 star hockey read from Sawyer Bennett. Was anxiously awaiting Legend and Pepper’s story and it was worth the wait. A great storyline and characters make for a fantastic read. No one writes steamy sports romance like Sawyer Bennett!
  • Perfectly Perfect

    By Agent$$$$
    Upon returning home from a late night of hockey, Legend is immediately bombarded with what looks like National Lampoons Christmas Vacation decorations. While Legend thinks his next door neighbor is extremely “hot”, he can’t stand her yard trash. He’s exasperated, but can’t turn her into the HOA because he lost a bet-no complaining. So he parks his car for the evening, but sees something on his porch. As he approaches and looks under the blankets, he realizes someone’s left a crying baby on his porch. Not knowing what to do or even how to hold an infant, he backs away and runs to Pepper. Pepper, the whimsical artistic one in her family, is constantly leaving “surprises” for Legend-just to irritate him. When he knocks on her door, she assumes it’s to complain about her yard decorations. Then he drags her over to his house, to the crying baby. Pepper immediately picks the little girl up while Legend calls the police. They find a note in the infant seat claiming it's Legend’s baby. Until paternity is determined, the infant is taken to a foster home. I know I said this on the last Arizona Vengeance novel, but I think this novel was the best one yet! Sawyer Bennett is a genius in weaving a believable storyline with characters who you normally wouldn’t think mesh, but are so right for each other in every way! Pepper is carefree, bright, and colorful. Legend is focused, strict, and “bland”. It’s amazing how much more “alive, colorful” Legend’s life becomes with Charlie and Pepper. Although this novel is the third in the series and can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend reading them in order so you get the “whole” picture. You also don’t necessarily have to be a huge hockey fan in order to read this novel. While Legend is a highly successful NHL player, it’s not the focus of the story. I loved Pepper and Legend’s friendship. They are hilarious together and so complimentary to each other. A perfect match! The suspense and baby mama drama had me on the edge of my seat! Throw in an adorable baby girl....all the feels! I highly recommend this novel. I received a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
  • Loved this book!

    By Judy Hartley
    Legend by Sawyer Bennett is hands down one of the best books I have read. I couldn’t put it down. It was wonderful to read a surprise baby book where the dad steps up and becomes a fully invested dad from the get go. Scared out of his mind for sure but totally takes his responsibility seriously and falls head over heels for his child. Now those of you who have been reading along in Sawyer’s new hockey series already know about Legends interesting relationship with his neighbor Pepper. It’s pretty darn funny. If you haven’t read any of the previous books, no worries! You’ll get the idea fairly quickly when you start Legend. Pepper and Legend are perfect! For all their differences they are made for each other. So what you’ll find in this book is hockey, yep obviously right. Some teammates we’ve met before. We get some more insight into some players who we are getting books from soon. Oh Tacker I am dying for your book. We get some intrigue and suspense. Get ready folks, things get a little tense when a certain baby mama shows up....definitely drama ensues. And some major steamy encounters. Oh boy the chemistry between Pepper and Legend is off the charts. One click this amazing book, you will not be disappointed!
  • Loved it!

    By Maryly211
    Legend is the one I hold close to my heart. Who would of thought a single fun loving guy would be such a wonderful dad. We met Legend and Pepper in the previous books in this series. Pepper is Legend’s annoying neighbor. Legend becomes an instant dad and Pepper comes to his rescue. This is a heartwarming story with some suspense thrown in, a terrific story. Review copy was received for a honest opinion.
  • Swoon!

    By KindleKat64
    Another wonderful story in this series about this new Arizona Vengeance hockey team. Despite their ongoing neighbor fued of sorts, turns out Legend Bay & Pepper Nantais are absolutely perfect for each other. All it took was a little Charlie. Their love may have been easy, but their journey was definitely not but yet so incredibly worth it! I laughed, I cried, I screamed and I swooned! Perfect! There is so much more than a love story going on in this book that will certainly take your emotions on a ride and won’t necessarily end when this book does, but I love that about this series. It definitely helps keep you invested in all the players. The writing is great! The characters are lovable and amazing! It’s always fun to check in with the other guys on the team too! I loved it!
  • Such a Great Series!

    By Katiekoz
    4.5☆ The storyline of Legend was surprising, not at all how I thought it was going to go. Even though I wasn't expecting it, it was really enjoyable. The surprise is really cute and makes Legend an even better guy. He has a big heart and just accepts the surprise and strives to be the best that he can be. I loved being in his head and getting his thoughts on the situation and seeing how much love he has to give. He's a great guy and very loving and protective. Pepper is entertaining and unique which made her interesting. I think she's a good fit for Legend and I liked how she was always there to help and give him advice and comfort. There were also surprises with other characters that make me even more intrigued, and let's face it, impatient, for their books. This series has been wonderful so far and I can't wait for more!
