of 2020 It s a hockey romance masterclass It s beautifully written and it will definitely make you swoon.I love the Brooklyn Bruisers This series owns my heart Every single book is a masterpiece, and Sure Shot might be the best one yet It s not surpring because Sarina Bowen is always outdoing herself She s such a talented writer and storyteller There s nothing better than reading one of her books, either for the first time or the tenth time.Sure Shot is Bess Beringer s story She s stong, smart and determined She s a very successful sports agent, and about to turn thirty She s making some changes in her personal life She has moved to Brooklyn to be closer to her family, and wants a family of her own But she didn t count on Mark Tank Tankiewicz, a former lover who still has the ability to make her swoon, to come back into her life.Mark is a great guy He s a bit of a grump, but charming and funny He s dreamy and swoonworthy His reputation precedes him, but he has depth, and you ll see he s hiding a wounded soul He s definitely book boyfriend material He s the new player on the team, traded from Dallas Brooklyn s nemesis, and is completely out of his depth He s not getting along with his new teammates on and off the ice He s getting divorced, and is a regular feature in the gossip blogs, his character constantly in question Basically, his whole life is falling apart He s not looking for a relationship, but he wasn t expecting to run into Bess again, the girl he had a fling with nine years ago.I loved Bess and Tank together Their banter is hilarious, and their chemistry off the charts The intensity of their attraction comes through loud and clear Butimportantly, it s evident they have a special connection It s not about sex, even when they both try to keep their relationship secret and without strings Bess s conflict with it is pretty evident, but Tank s reluctance has deeper roots, and they come to light when he opens up to Bess, showing her his vulnerability.One of the things I love most about this series is that it has a very strong small town vibe Brooklyn and especially DUMBO are described so vividly and with such attention to detail, that they come alive in the reader s mind, and they really play a very important role in these stories It s part of their DNA.The other thing I love is the characters I m in love with each and every one of them The depth and intensity of the supporting cast is one of Sarina Bowen s trademarks.I loved seeing Bess bonding with Becca and Georgia, and Tank trying to explain his role on the team to Jason Castro Heidi steals the showthan once, as only she does, and we get to hang out with Zara, Dave and Nicole for a little while It was great to see Patrick O Doul so zen, happiness definitely suits him Baby Bayer had a couple of magic moments as well, and I loved meeting Henry, such a lovely guy.Sure Shot is a beautiful second chance story about moving on, true love, and trust About embracing change, and realizing that there sthan one way to find happiness if only you re open to the possibilities It s witty and hilarious, but just as heartfelt and soulful as you d expect from Sarina Bowen It s the perfect combination of laugh out loud fun and very emotional and heartbreaking revelations It will touch your soul and make it cry a little, both from heartbreak and laughter.Sure Shot is Sarina Bowen at her best, and that alone makes it worth your time It s hockey perfection, steamy romance and wonderful characters I loved everything about this story, and can only hope there arehunky hockey players coming our way in the near future Bess Tank Bess is a sports agent and friends family with lots of Brooklyn hockey players and their wives and Tank is a newly

neither has Mark She has no idea at all what this means to me I haven t felt desire like this in years Haven t been desired in years Tank was a complex characters, his denial to re marry doesn t have a run of the mill reason like how horrible his wife was There went a lot of thought into this character He was cocky, a little mischievous and a whole lot of sweet, yet also troubled, sometimes a little grump, thoughtful with a s buttery soft core Bess s ability to make him feel again, after being in a state of apathy and anger for a long time was thanks to her well rounded mix of sweetness,

author publisher for an honest review.ForReviews, Free E books and Giveaways I am so glad to get Bess s book I have loved this whole series, well to be honest I don t think Sarina Bowen could write something I didn t love But this one I found to be particularly emotional And I am so scared to give away any spoilers that I don t know what to say I want to gush about it s awesomeness and how it gave me all the feels But there was so much to this story, while at the same time it was all so everyday for so many people You know other than being super sexy, rich, hockey I am so glad to get Bess

away any spoilers that I don t know what to say I want to gush about it s awesomeness and how it gave me all the feels But there was so much to this story, while at the same time it was all so everyday for so many people You know other than being super sexy, rich, hockey superstars and super amazing agent to said hockey gods and baby sister to another Bess was such a beautiful soul I have loved her since she made her appearance in Dave s book She was so together and sweet and hardworking and driven I loved her And Tank was so strong even though his whole world was on it s head and on fire he just kept swimming But this story was gah I just kept waiting for the knife to drop and when it did I wasn t expecting that And honestly maybe that s because what Tank went through is nothing that has affected me so my brain just didn t go there But Sarina wrote it so well that I was gutted for both Tank and Bess Don t despair thought because these two weren t going to let anything get in the way of the massive amount of chemistry, love and pure happiness that they had found And I really couldn t put it down from start to finish I was wrapped up in these characters Plus all the Brooklyn Bruisers that we already know and love were there and we got a few babies added to the family As always the worst part was getting to the end and having to adjust to the reality that we have to wait for the next one I m a sucker for a romance between a grumpy hero, not looking for love falling for the heroine, with a 5 year life plan And Sure Shot delivered on this promise in the most delightful and heartwarming way.It was so easy to fall in love with Tank and Bess because Sarina Bowen wrote them so well, it s impossible not to like them I enjoyed their dance, from being FWB to

falling for the heroine, with a 5 year life plan And Sure Shot delivered on this promise in the most delightful and heartwarming way.It was so easy to fall in love with Tank and Bess because Sarina Bowen wrote them so well, it s impossible not to like them I enjoyed their dance, from being FWB to having some serious feelings for each other They had great chemistry and I loved how their connection deepened throughout the book.The conflict, in my opinion, was the highlight Tank came into the team bringing a lot of baggage, including a bitter divorce and some really ugly rumors that did not endear him to his new teammates at the very beginning He struggled and Bess was his one bright spot in a new city where he felt unwelcomed At first, I thought he was eh, shallow but as the story moved along, I found myself rooting for him Kudos to Sarina for not resorting to the evil ex stereotype when it came to Jordanna, Tank s ex Bess has some baggage, too Her bad experiences during childhood explained a lot of her motivations And it explained why those experiences made her long to have a family of her own, something that Tank couldn t give her It was a tautly written conflict and the resolution, while others might say is too neat, fits and was satisfying to me CW Infertility, divorce GAH Sarina Bowen s Brooklyn Bruisers series has a special place in my heart All her stories in this incredible series are full of sass, sexy moments and all the swoons Sure Shot is no exception I fell head over heels for Mark He had so many different facets to who he was cocky, raw and alpha but also unsure and confused Likewise Bess was fantastic She had that little extra sass that I loved while also looking for love I loved them together When I think of Mark Tank Tankiewicz I a GAH Sarina Bowen s Brooklyn Bruisers series has a special place in my heart All her stories in this incredible series are full of sass, sexy moments and all the swoons Sure Shot is no exception I fell head over heels for Mark He had so many different facets to who he was cocky, raw and alpha but also unsure and confused Likewise Bess was fantastic She had that little extra sass that I loved while also looking for love I loved them together When I think of Mark Tank Tankiewicz I am once again bowled over by the way he won me over First and foremost, his dirty mouth and alpha smexy style just gave me allll the butterflies, good Lord But his easy and smooth demeanor and ease in which he wanted to rekindle his romance with Bess just did it for me He was absolutely delicious Further, I love how well matched they were They were both at an impasse in their respective lives and unsure about their future plans But once their connection was rekindled, their lives revolved around one another.Overall, I LOVED being back in this world and seeing a bunch of old and new favorites This series and all of its characters feel like a family that I never want to leave It was emotional and poignant while also full of heat and humor This story hit all the right notes Bravo 5 stars Ratula I don t know if I ve ever wanted to hug two charactersLike, there I was reading this incredible, heartfelt love story and it was all I could do to keep from squeezing my Kindle tight because Bess and Mark were utterly huggable.I adored them This story starts with a blast of physical chemistry before that gets set on simmer while the emotions build And holy emotion explosion these two completely rocked my heart The bond that Bess and Mark formed was a thing of absolute beauty I loved that they were given room to explore a friendship, peppered with exquisitely tender moments, and a whole lot of sweetness Theirs was a bumpy road and my heart ached for them but it was so worth it SO worth it.With Sure Shot, Sarina Bowen tackles some sensitive subjects There are issues addressed that I felt on a deeply personal level However, the perspective she gave was new, thought provoking, and took the whole story to an emotional place that wholly encompassed my heart As usual, the writing was smart and snappy, and the storytelling was crazy compelling but done with a delicate touch and a respectful tone And the things it did to my heart y all, I can t even I feel like there is no trope that Sarina Bowen can t master, but there is something special about her hockey romances Each new one is like falling back into a circle of old friends I enjoyed catching up with the characters from previous books and while the romance is front and center here I also enjoyed watching Tank fumble his way toward friendship with his new teammates These lovable lunks provided hours of entertainment and I don t think I ll ever get enough of them.There was nothing about this book that wasn t 100% satisfying The story sparks with chemistry, it set my heart aflutter with swoons, and then made it overflow with emotions as these two insanely huggable characters found their happily ever after I am so crazy about this book 1000% recommend Shelly, 5 Stars Some plans can be tweaked to give you everything you dreamed ofMy romance reading started with Sweet Dreams high school romances and then moved onto historical romances by the likes of Jude Deveraux and Julie Garwood So, at sixteen my hero looked like a floppy haired skinny kid think Zac Efron in High School Musical who rode horses while wearing breeches and a cravat think Mr Darcy or Jonathan Rhys Meyers in The Tudor depending what era I was reading While I, the heroine, wore beautiful Some plans can be tweaked to give you everything you dreamed ofMy romance reading started with Sweet Dreams high school romances and then moved onto historical romances by the likes of Jude Deveraux and Julie Garwood So, at sixteen my hero looked like a floppy haired skinny kid think Zac Efron in High School Musical who rode horses while wearing breeches and a cravat think Mr Darcy or Jonathan Rhys Meyers in The Tudor depending what era I was reading While I, the heroine, wore beautiful ballgowns in my evenings, and a pair of jeans and a t shirt during the day To this day I love historical and contemporary romances, and I can still picture myself in both worlds Back then, I had a great imagination and no problem seeing a future with my swaggering, rugby playing, horse riding, and aristocratic husband.The thing I find most humorous is that while those attributes appealed to me in my youth, I ve realised that in some ways, my imaginings did produce the man of my dreams in my Hubby No, he s not a swaggering, rugby playing, horse riding, and aristocratic husband, but he is a thoughtful, sweet, strong and loving man Those wishful imaginings of my youth were surface value only With maturity, I realised that what was really important about those men in my stories was that they ended up being thoughtful, sweet, strong and loving Well maybe not the high school boys Sure Shot was a fantastic story and made me think of all the plans of my youth Some of those imaginings made it to fruition and some were just never going to happen A lot of them were realised with a few tweaks It s all good to make plans, but sometimes life has a way of taking things in a different way than you hoped for Adjustments need to made to your dreams, and some even need to be given up on I found myself feeling sorry for Mark and Bess, but I also realised that their dreams had to be adjusted like most peoples Yes, their past wasn t pretty, but Bess and Mark are strong, determined and motivated On first meeting them, I knew that they were meant for happiness together I knew it but for them, they needed to conquer a few demons and hurdle a few obstacles.Bess had a terrible childhood but was living very successfully despite it After hitting the big 3 0, she is making plans for the next stage of her life Mark is a successful hockey player who has been traded to a new team and he s finalising his divorce He doesn t want to make plans because the ones he previously made went horribly wrong Bess and Mark have a past, but it has been a lot of years in between So, one has plans and dreams and one doesn t want to ever make plans again But, both can t deny their intense attraction to each other and will come to realise that some plans can be tweaked to give you everything you dreamed of Sarina Bowen is a wonderful storyteller Every time I read one of her stories, I m always left emotionally satisfied and joyful that another couple has found their happy ever after Yes, that s a little silly considering they re make believe, but honestly, it doesn t matter I just love that buzz of a perfect romance Well, it wasn t always perfect for Mark and Bess but it did end perfectly I ve loved the Brooklyn series and Sure Shot did not disappoint It was great to catch up with some of my favourite characters and see where their lives are at Bess and Mark were lovable, the storyline was interesting, and the sexy times were sizzling If you haven t tried this series, I highly recommend giving it a try I suggest you start at the very beginning, a very good place to startStacey is Sassy, received an advanced copy of this
