Book 1, A Brooklyn Bruisers Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The 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....

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 17, 2016 – Bowen's (Steadfast) launch novel for the contemporary romantic Brooklyn Bruisers hockey series hits with little force while skating to an abrupt, lackluster finale. Georgia's a young interim PR director for the Brooklyn Bruisers NHL team. She's dismayed when her father is named as the team's new coach, and crushed when she finds out that her first love has just been traded to the team, six years after she broke his heart. Leo's been biding his time since college, dutifully playing with a minor-league hockey team. Then the call comes bringing him up to the big game. Unfortunately, Georgia's father hates him for unknown reasons, and Leo now has to work with the woman he never forgot. The typical plot devices are employed to bring the two heroes together, including the interfering best friend and the manufactured player-trade threat. Georgia's past as a sexual assault survivor is trotted out in what feels like a heavy-handed and contrived statement, yet later in the book it's handled with surprising finesse. This romance lacks the chemistry necessary to make it memorable.

Another Get Sarina Bowen Book

Read it in less than 24 hours! If you love sports books you will enjoy this. Leo Trevi will melt your heart.

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.

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 a**hole 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.
