goodreadsIn high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold…

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast…

My review

My review on Goodreads + pic

4,5 stars! Beautiful written, awesome characters and great story. My FIRST book from Sarina Bowen is a big success!

About the plot: Leo Trevi always dreamed to play in a professional league NHL. Now his hard work was going to pay off when he was recruited to Brooklyn Bruisers. It was supposed to be a new beginning, but he unexpectedly met there with the ghosts of the past. New team’s coach, who wears grudges to him, and team’s publicist, also known as his big love and ex-girlfriend.

Georgia Worthington broke his heart once, but hers also hasn’t been unscathed. They were high school sweethearts, but circumstances caused that she pushed him away. At twenty-four she got the chance to be a temporarily senior publicist to the NHL team, and she was intended to stay a professional. But Leo also plans to take his chances, on the ice and in love.

“You and I don’t have one-night stands. We have forever night stands.”

Final thoughts: Beautifully written and developed story. A little slowly kicks off, but at least it is firmly placed in reality. Everything has its time and place. To that funny dialogues and a little angst enough to enrich the story and not make her exaggerated, created a great storyline.

Georgia and Leo are very likeable characters, it makes that you will firmly rooting for them while reading. And Leo is definitely swoon worthy. He is determined and sure of what he wants. His sweet ways to regain Georgia are wonderful and make you smile. Their chemistry is off the charts and they simply made to be together. I easily fell in love with them and their story.

It’s light and sweet story, really have everything you are looking for in books like that. Something for fans of steamy second chances and funny sports romances. I can’ t forget about a lot of great secondary characters, which promises a great start to the new series. And I already can’t wait for more.

Standalone book 2 of Brooklyn Bruisers, Hard Hitter comes January 3rd 2017.
