A sexy new standalone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.
You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.
For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.
When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.
Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?
Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳Attraction between friends that are oblivious about it, but have strong friendship feelings towards each other making it harder for them to release their lust towards each other…
➳When it comes down to friends to lovers romances, Sarina Bowen has nailed it to the core with this new addition to the continuing story line of the Brooklyn Bruisers, but still considered as a stand-alone of course. Having read the Sarina Bowen books in the past, I love this book ten-times more do to it being in a dual-pov, first person perspective. The story line itself is wonderful, and it captivates you to the dirty mind that Nate has there is no turning back, but only moving forward to what else has has up his sleeve.
➳To me, I found this love story appealing for those who are into office AND sports romances. The attraction between Nate and Rebecca is present, but it’s also one that Rebecca seems to be oblivious about. Nate, internally, expresses his feelings and attraction towards Beca, but due to his past, he is afraid to unleash those feelings and let Rebecca know about it. Everything changes when they both collide towards something one night, and they interact physically.
➳The angst is always there, no matter what. And in the beginning, all you want to do is yell at Rebecca and Nate to just do it already! To stop neglecting their attraction and go for it already…
➳Overall, this was such a sweet romance story that gets your head filled with angst and so many filthy emotions and thoughts;) However, it will also entertain you with the appearances of the previous characters from the Brooklyn Bruiser’s series. Thank you to Nina and Sarina for giving me an advance copy of this puppy. I am now utterly invested in any sort of writing by Sarina that’s for sure…
