Book 1, A Brooklyn Bruisers Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with 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.

Customer Reviews

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.
