How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

The first novel in a sexy new series featuring the hockey players of the Brooklyn Bruisers and the women who win their hearts.

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.

Love it!

I absolutely adore this story! it had me hooked from beginning to end. The characters are lovable, and the second chance was perfectly done.

Love the hockey, and I can't wait for more from this team! The friendships make this story great and leave me wanting more!

The narration is fantastic! The emotion comes through when needed! The pacing and intonation were absolutely perfect! Definitely looking forward to listening to both of them again!

Fun second chance at love romance


Sarina Bowen's Rookie Move was a book I couldn't stop listening to. Leo and Georgia were a great couple with a past and incredible chemistry. The story moved smoothly with a great cast of secondary characters whose stories I'm looking forward to.
Nicol Zanzarella and Rock Engle did a wonderful job with the narration.

Very enjoyable.

Really enjoyed the True North series and immediately jumped into the Brooklyn Bruisers. Equally good. Sarina Bowen writes very entertaining stories.

Much more emotional than I expected!

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed this story. Leo is so unbelievably sweet! He really is the perfect guy- so caring and kind. His love for Georgia was swoontastic!
I loved the whole second chance romance of it- how, even after 6 years, they were still so much in love with each other. And I loved that there wasn't outside drama when it came to Leo and his GiGi. This was their story, their issues, their hang-ups to work through. A lot happened between them as teenagers, more than any 18 year should have to deal with, and they needed to address all of it to be able to move forward.
I saw another reviewer say they thought Georgia was whiney and jealous and I just had to wonder what book they listened to??? I didn't find her whiney at all, and the only hint of jealousy was dealt with in a fun way. She was strong and focused, and determined not to let anything hold her back.


Which scene was your favorite?

My favorites were the scenes when Leo and Georgia really opened up to each other, when they finally talked about everything that had happened six years ago.
I was so anxious to find out why Georgia's dad had such an issue with Leo, and when all that came to a head it was such a relief!
Listening to the scene with Leo and her dad had me in tears! You could tell the love was still there, underneath all the animosity that had been held onto.
And don't even get me started on poor Leo, and the whole misunderstanding in the training room! My God, my heart hurt for him!

The story I've been waiting for

Sarina Bowen does the hockey romance genre like nobody's business, she never fails to suck you in. That being said, she made me a huge fan with her Ivy Years series, which is where I first came to know Leo Trevi and then of his history with Georgia. It was the story line I really wanted to see next, so I can't express how happy I was to see their story play out for this new series. It was absolutely perfect, and I'm actually glad that we see them after college as opposed to during. The performances were excellent and the back and forth was gratifying to see. Well done, and thank you for another fabulous story Sarina. It's always a pleasure. 10 stars and credit worthy for sure!

Great love story

This was a really enjoyable book. If you have any interest in hockey, the description is pretty accurate, if you don't, the story carries itself without any hockey knowledge. It didn't feel cookie cutter, I could really feel for the characters. Great writing, not too much sex, well written when it was there and felt like a part of the story, not just tacked on.
