"This sexy read is the first in Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series, and it tackles the popular sport-romance genre with ease, promising more fun Bruisers novels to come."—Booklist

Rookie Move was just that--all heart and soul with a hardy dose of swoon and charm. The characters were relatable, downright lovable, and the plot line was easy to follow, invest in, and connect to. It was everything a sports romance should be and more.
An EFFORTLESS third POV (which is usually not my fav).
HOTTER THAN HOT steamy scenes! <<--- NO SKIMPING on the sexy!
And PERFECT feels, emotions so pure, they made me shiver.
Honestly, from the sweetness of the second chance romance, to the reminder of Leo and Georgia's first love flutters, to the painful heartache they felt when that love fell apart, it all took my breath away! And once again, I found myself romanced in the very best way, by a set of characters who had me falling completely head over heels in love.
This was everything I needed in a book. A sweet, charming, captivating love story that has been added to my favorites shelf.
Leo Trevi is on his way to being an NHL Hockey Player. He's just been called up by Brooklyn Bruisers! This is all Leo has ever wanted, all that he's been working for has finally culminated and landed him with a dream opportunity. He shows up the first day ready to prove himself to his new coach, new owner, and new team, but little does Leo know that life is about to take a turn.
Georgia Worthington is on the cusp of a promotion and she's doing everything she can to secure it. Currently, she's the interim Senior Publicist for the Brooklyn Bruisers and she wants to keep that position. Permanently. Showing up to work, Georgia is set to handle her FIRST press conference! (They are announcing the new coach!) But when Georgia shows up for work, there's a big surprise waiting for her and it's one that leaves her winded.
Leo and Georgia go way back. Six years ago, Georgia broke Leo's heart by dumping him cold. Since then neither of them have uttered a word to each other. They've both just been trying to move on. So when Georgia see's Leo standing in the Brooklyn Bruisers main office, and hears that he's the newest recruit to the team, things get sticky fast.
This story is so sweet. I know keep using that word to describe it, but it's the only way I can say it. Leo is a hero who sweeps you off your feet with his goodness. There is NOT one bad trait in that man. His heart is so pure and his actions speak so loudly about his character, about who he is at his core. His love for Georgia has never wavered. And his longing, his yearning for this girl, who holds his entire world, melted me to my core.
There truly is nothing better than a man who cherishes, respects, and admires the woman he loves with an unconditional fervor. That's Leo. I adored him and found him to be so refreshing. And also, it's not often you read about a guy who's not broken, who's not a jerk. Yes, Georgia broke Leo's heart, but Leo never let it harden his feelings toward her. If anything, it only intensified his need to fix what happened between them and win her back. And that, my friends, is romance, it's magical!
And has far as Georgia goes, well, she's been through so much in her life. She's a character you cannot help but fall in love with. Fierce, tenacious, hard working and utterly lovable, I understood her reactions, her heartache, her softness and need for Leo and her hesitancy as well. You'll wholeheartedly root for her. You can't do anything but that.
Together Leo and G are just perfect. Their sweet, second chance romance sizzles and charms you until it owns your heart and soul.
Once again, I'm blown away but the rush Sarina's words gave me, by the real and intoxicating way her stories are told. Just fantastic. I highly recommend Rookie Move. And I can't wait to get my hands on Hard Hitter -- O'Doul's book!
The author takes a sensitive theme, recovery from sexual assault and explores the truth that in addition to the victim, others close to the injured party are also traumatized. Leo and Georgia were perfect for each other six years ago but things are different now. The setting is extremely well developed and it is clear that the author knows the smells and sounds of hockey. I laughed when Silas, the backup goalie opened the rink door just in time to knock over a player from the opposing team who had roughed up Leo. There isn't much better than a story that makes you laugh, makes you sad, makes you happy and adds a little buzz along the way. Oh my Lord the photo shoot, the naked photo shoot. Pictures of six foot tall super hot hockey player skating around the rink with absolutely no clothes on. As a side note - I have suspicion that there is something smoldering between the Nate, the team owner and his assistant Becca who is Gigi's roommate. I especially appreciated the end when Nate described his reason for bringing Leo to the team and the rationale for keeping him on. I also want one of those phones.. super fast super secure.
If you're a hockey romance fan, this book is for you. I was so excited to read this book because of how much I love Sarina's writing. Like all of her other books, Rookie Move did not disappointment. It sucked me in, it gave me my happily ever after, involved hockey and had a second chance love... What more could I ask for?
Georgia, Gigi, is the PR person for the Brooklyn Bruiser, a new and upcoming team in the NHL. I think she is my favorite leading female in a hockey romance. She's a killer and does all she can to be the best that she can. When the love of her life comes back when she least expected it, she has many different feelings and thoughts approach, but she took it all in stride and more happiness was achieved. Opening her heart up again, to the one person who has always had it wasn't in her plan, but sometimes life happens.
Leo, after a sudden trade from the AHL league to NHL, he knew this was his chance to make it big. What he wasn't expecting, was his high school girlfriend and her dad to be involved with the team he was traded to. After a shakey first press conference, he wasn't sure how the season would go, but knowing he wanted to be successful he gave it his all, on and off the ice. Winning Gigi back, wasn't part of his plan, but he wanted it to be a major part of his future.
I loved Leo and Gigi's story. Going into the book, I knew I was going to love it because Sarina wrote it, but I wasn't prepared for how much I was going to love it. She successfully achieved overcoming demons to let love win. She let the reader get fully involved with the characters and pulled them in. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
