Review: Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen

descriptionThe 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....


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rookie Mov was my first Sarina Bowen' book and it won't be my last. Even if I had a hard time to connect to the story immediately, I can't wait to read more from her. She makes me giddy for more. Leo's team mates are all so very interesting. Castro seems fun, Silas is enigmatic (view spoiler) and O'Doul is cryptic. See lots more waiting to come in this series

But back to Leo & Georgia...

Both of them were an item in college until something bad happened to Georgia who made the harsh decision to leave Leo. Six years later and they are on the same path: Him as a rookie for the Brooklyn Bruisers and her as a publicist for the same team.
It is a shock for them both to see each other again. And while Leo knows what he wants from the start, she is more hesitant. She had a reason to leave but she has to admit to herself that she never truly forgot her high school sweetheart.

Pair that up with jobs insecurities, once again for them both, and you are in for a ride.

What trouble me all along was how sweet Leo was. His younger version seems as gentle as he is now. I wanted him to stand up more, to rebel a little. In some scenes he was too passive for my liking.
Georgia was also a little annoying to me but while reading I get why she tried to protect herself for so long.
The second part of the book was my fav'. They were more together, I could see their connection and why they were good to each other more.
I appreciated more their tenderness and Leo's protective side.

All in all I really enjoy reading all the different aspect in the Brooklyn Bruiser's team. I've already mentioned all the players but I wouldn't say no to a book with the millionaire owner, Nate... And who better than Becca to be with him?
