abASometimes lady luck shakes your hand, and sometimes she smacks your face. Sometimes she does both on the same day.

Three years ago I met the most amazing girl in the world. We were both down on our luck. Then I got that call—the one that tells you to get your buns on a plane to go meet your destiny.

But the girl was left behind. I didn’t have her phone number, and she didn’t know my real name.

While I became a professional hockey player, she became a superstar, with platinum records and legions of fans. And a slick, music producer boyfriend who treated her badly.

But fate wasn’t done with us yet. When Delilah turns up at a hockey game, I can’t resist making contact. The internet swoons when I ask her out on a date.

She might not remember me. But her jerkface ex does. He’ll do anything to keep us apart.

Good thing athletes never give up. This time I’m playing for keeps.

 

SUPERFAN

by Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen’s stories are my comfort reads, perfect when you’re in a rut. I’ve said it before – her writing is like coming home. No long transition time from your last book into this one, wonderful descriptions, witty and clever dialogues and lovable characters. I could stop here because this all applies to Superfan but this one is even more special and it’s one of my favorites by this author.

Silas is the sweetest. Even though he also experiences difficult times he never loses the positive outlook on life. He is a bit of a klutz and a dork which makes him even more adorable. He knows exactly what he wants and is very clear about it. And damn, when he opens his mouth he is sex on a stick.

“I’m willing to make a very large fool of myself if it means I have a real chance with you.”

When Silas and Delilah meet the first time they both are still nobodys. They have an instant connection and a sweet friendship but fate stops their budding feelings just before they progress into more. Three years later they meet again and I’m happy that it wasn’t the big drama I expected – Delilah forgives Silas fast for standing her up the last time they were supposed to meet.

My troubles seem smaller when I’m lying next to him.

Delilah is a survivor, someone who came from nothing and has the bite to make use of her musical talent and rise to the top. She is ambitious without being difficult and bitchy. Her stardom isn’t something she feels completely comfortable about but it comes with the job. She’s humble and endearing and kind – I loved her altruism, that she shared without making a big deal about it.

For someone who is required to meet and charm strangers all the time, I’m not very good at it.

One of my favorite part is always the dynamic between the guys of the team. The smack-talking always makes for some good laughs. In SUPERFAN we are witness to Nate and Becca’s wedding – I loved this part so much!

I had so much fun with this story – from the way Silas and Delilah reconnected to them getting to know one another on a deeper level, their sexy and playful connection. How Silas had so much heart and sweetness and patience. Delilah, who recognized a good man despite her bad experience. Silas’s nickname and how it came to be. Admittedly, after finishing the previous book, in which we got hints of Silas’s story, I was expecting something completely different but I’m not disappointed at all. SUPERFAN is one of the sweetest books in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. It’s lighthearted, cute and the perfect beach read. I am excited and looking forward to the next in this series. I wonder who it will be about?

“You can’t get the things you want if you don’t lay it all on the line.”
