This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.

Sarina Bowen delivers reliably without failure. Pick any of her books and you’ll have a good time. BOMBSHELLS, the next in the Brooklyn Bruisers series, introduces Rebecca Kattenberger’s female team.

The first of the Bombshells who gets a happy ending is the team’s goalie, Sylvie. Her match? Baby Bayer! Ahhhh they were perfection! Everything about them just worked. Anton Bayer needs to clean up his act, he’s set on being a good teammate and determined to stay out of trouble. That’s hard when you fall head over heels in lust with a gorgeous female hockey player though.
Sylvie being hired into the Bombshells feels like she’s won the lottery. Her childhood friend and teenage crush plays on the Bruisers’ team and she hopes that they can take their friendship to the next level. But then Baby Bayer, the trouble maker, slides into her life.

This installment introduces a whole bunch of new characters. I can see some HEAs already on the horizon. Especially Drake has caught my eager eye and I was happy to see that his book will be next! There is a a hint of supernatural in this story that I found adorable.

I had the chance to listen to the audiobook of BOMBSHELLS and was introduced to Patrick Zeller’s narration. What can I say, I’m super impressed and hope more authors start booking him. He snuck right into my favorite narrators list. Together with Desiree Ketchum they make this one easy to listen to and engaging.

This is another winner by Sarina Bowen. It is cute, low-drama, sexy and irresistible friends to lovers story with humor to boot and two easy-going characters you can’t help but root for. Can’t wait for the next book!
