ROOKIE MOVE by Sabrina Bowen is a super sexy, really fun
book from start
to finish. The heroine, Georgia Worthington, is a few
months into her new job and dealing with all the
associated stress there-in. Plus said new-job
is for a new NHL franchise and that stress increases. Add
to that, her father was just hired as the new head coach,
more stress. Cherry on top? Her ex-boyfriend is the star
rookie signing. The ex-boyfriend she's never gotten over.
But she can handle it. Of course she can.
The good news for us readers is that the ex-boyfriend
never got over her either. Levi Trevi has been in love
with Georgia Worthington for nearly half his life. One of
the most mystifying days of his high school career was
when she walked away and dumped him, claiming the need
for a fresh start in college. As it was only a few months
after she survived a violent sexual assault, Levi wasn't
sure what to think, but loved her enough to let her go.
When they're thrown back together by fate, they have to
choose to be honest with each other. This leads to
beautiful vulnerability between the two, as well as
really hot sex. I think Bowen is one of the best at
capturing hockey culture alongside the romances and she's
set up some excellent side characters here as well that I
cannot wait to get to know better. Georgia's best
friend/roommate, for example, is one of my favorite
sidekicks in recent memory. The dialogue sparkles, the
banter is real, and the added bonus of healing and
honesty, not only between Georgia and Levi, but between
Levi and Georgia's dad, and between her dad and Georgia -
it's a poignant reminder that assault has more victims
than we usually remember.
ROOKIE MOVE by Sabrina Bowen is a must-get for any hockey
romance fan, and
is highly recommended for fans of sexy contemporary
second-chance romances as well.
The first novel in a sexy new series featuring the hockey
players of the Brooklyn Bruisers and the women who win their
hearts—from the USA Today bestselling author of the
Ivy Years series.
In 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....
