    Still waiting

    This is the first book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and further understanding, read in companion with The Ivy Years series. Georgia & Leo have a history. When he comes to be on her team, with her father suddenly in the picture also, tensions are high. Is it wrong of her to still want the man? Leo is not sure how he can stand the thought that Georgia may reject him yet again. Just getting to know a new team is hard enough. Now they just need a little heat and a little compromise. Seriously great start to a new series with beloved characters! Already enjoying the series with the players seeming to be charming and hot. What a joy to read! I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next.

    I've got season tickets for this series!

    It’s been six years since Georgia last saw her ex-boyfriend Leo, the one she dumped after graduation. They’d been a happy high school couple, but when she was raped while away at a tennis camp, everything changed for them. They couldn’t get back to the way things were and she couldn’t stand to see the hurt and worry in his eyes anymore, believing that setting him free would let him move on with his life. Now, she’s working as the publicity directory for the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team, where her father has landed a coaching job and Leo has just joined the team as their new rookie. The past is colliding with the present, and Georgia is discovering that while she might have let Leo out of her life, she never let go of him in her heart – and the same holds true for him. Can they find their way to a better and brighter future? I loved this story!! Sarina Bowen is a hands down favorite author of mine, and she once again delivers a sexy, heartwarming, sometimes bittersweet tale in this second chance romance. Though Georgia’s assault is the reason for Georgia and Leo’s teenage breakup, there are no flashbacks to the actual event and despite the seriousness of what happened, the story itself is one of hope and healing. When Georgia went away to college, she studied martial arts and has become a confidant and strong woman, no longer afraid the way she used to be. While she believes the choice she made to break up with Leo was the right one at the time, it was not done because she didn’t love him. In fact, it was the opposite. So when Leo shows up as the new player on the team, it’s a shock to the system for both of them. Leo had accepted Georgia’s decision back then, but now that he has the opportunity to spend time with her, he makes it clear that he wants another chance. The sexual tension between them is palpable and leads to some super sexy scenes as they reconnect. Leo is definitely tops on my list of book boyfriends. He’s a caring and considerate man, and it’s clear he never stopped loving Georgia. It’s also clear that there are some issues from her assault that he never really dealt with, always focusing on what he could do for Georgia at that time and then trying to put everything behind him when she let him go. Now that they are spending time together, things start to come to the surface once more. There are some emotional moments for both of them that made me a bit teary-eyed, even as it was cathartic to see them move forward. Georgia’s father had been a mentor to Leo before the assault but they had become estranged afterwards, a fact that leads to some challenges for them when they have to work together on the ice. Leo’s got a lot on his plate – his first year in the NHL, a fractious history with his new coach, and trying to convince Georgia that they deserve another chance. But through it all he is steadfast and determined. I admired his tenacity. Besides the relationship between Leo and Georgia there are some great hockey scenes both on and off the ice. There are some interesting dynamics between the owner Nate, a billionaire tech genius and the rest of the management team. As well, there are some other hockey players of interest that we’ll hopefully see in the future, in particular the captain Patrick O’Doul and Leo’s roommate Silas, the backup goalie. The series has started off with a bang, and I can’t wait to read more! 5 stars.

    5 Sweet Second Chance Romance Stars!

    Completely loved this sweet second chance romance! The characters were relatable and lovable and I just couldn't get enough! I'm a sucker for sports and first love/second chance romances, and Rookie Move did not disappoint! This is the first book in the series, and I can't wait for more! One of the best parts of Rookie Move is that the story stays focused on Leo and Georgia. Yes, they both have their baggage and demons to battle, but there's no unnecessary drama/conflict or other potential love interests. Their love for each other, in the past and present, is clear as day and you can't help but root for them. Seriously, swoon!! Leo will go down as one of the best book boyfriends of all time. He's supportive, loving, considerate, passionate, and an all around good hearted guy. Georgia is also such a strong heroine. Her painful past was palpable and broke my heart. She's determined to overcome it, but until she sees Leo again, she doesn't realize that she hasn't fully moved past it to live again. Watching these two reconnect and rekindle flames that never died was emotional and heart warming. It's not a smooth path and I do wish they wouldn't have wasted so much time denying their hearts, but I understand that it was necessary for them to heal (though not entirely) and grow/mature. Leo and Georgia are perfectly imperfect and I loved making the journey with them. Some readers who enjoy the more assertive/aggressive alphas (don't we all at least a little? ;)), may find the story too sweet and sappy, but for this romantic at heart, Rookie Move was perfect.

    Such a poignant read

    This was my first book by Sarina Bowen and I really enjoyed it! The writing immediately caught my attention and the characters kept me going through the end. I absolutely loved this one and was so happy to have characters that I could really invest in. Leo and Georgia are so sweet together and they’re a perfect balance for their age. They’re both going through significant moments in their life — Georgia’s trying to prove her worth as a PR agent and Leo’s trying to prove his worth as a hockey player — but they’re still fun and easy going together, which fits with their age of 23-24. I always worry about drama and angst when reading a book about ex-lovers but I was happy to see that these two didn’t need to go through that. Because of the circumstances surrounding their breakup, there weren’t really any hard feelings on either side and once Leo saw Georgia again, he knew they belonged together. I also appreciated that once they slept together, Georgia didn’t immediately pull back. They knew they needed to be discreet but it was handled maturely. As for side characters, I’m really looking forward to this series! I wasn’t sure bout O’Doul at first but he quickly grew on me and I’m curious for more. I can’t wait for Nate’s story and I can already guess who his love interest will be. I also really want to see more of Silas.
