Alex Crossman is a hockey player that is extremely talented but has a terrible reputation due to his indifferent attitude. Due to his image, he is given no choice but to work on a program to raise drug abuse awareness to teens. He is partnered to work with a social worker that won’t put up with his nonchalance.
Sutton Price had a rough upbringing but has learned to deal with her demons. When she is assigned to work with Alex, she believes that she can make a difference with his help. What she didn't expect was to have an attraction to him that she can’t ignore.
When Alex and Sutton first meet, they started off on a rocky path but the more time they spend together the more they want to see each other. Sutton easily opens up but Alex stays clear of anything to do with his past. This is easily where the novels’ problem lies with me. I felt that his past wasn't explored enough therefore didn't develop as much as I would have liked. I would have given this novel a higher rating if it wasn't for the fact that I felt the resolution came too easily.
I give Alex (A Cold Fury Novel) 3 out of 5 stars.
