Rookie Move (Brooklyn Bruisers #1)
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….
When I read The Fifteenth Minute, last book in the Ivy League Series, I was very curious about the story of Leo Travis’s past love, DJ’s brother. After all, youth love always gets our attention, isn’t it?
And when I heard that the first book of this new series, a The Ivy Years spin off, would be with them I could barely wait to read it. Thank God the wait was worth it and I was able to delight myself with this beautiful love story, with that fun touch Sarina always brings to us, with a LOT of hockey games, that a sports romance’s enthusiastic is always thankful for.
Narrated in third person, but with a touch of first, the book begins with Georgia fighting to stand in the position of RP Manager from the Hockey Team Brooklyn Bruisers and also dealing with the news that her own father will be the new coach of the team that still is fighting for a space in the NHL. When she thinks that these were the only things she would have to worry about, she finds out the reason why the most recent acquisition of the team let her father so mad: her ex-boyfriend from high school, Leo Trevi; the one that still has a huge space in her heart and also is the subject of her father’s.
She struggles to not be affected by his presence, which obviously doesn’t work that much, specially because Leo is willing to catch up the old times. Amid practices, plays, photo shoots for a naked calendar and several hilarious scenes, we have a light romance that leave us with a goofy grin in the face most of the time.
As I said before, I am a super fan of Sarina’s work and it’s very hard to find a book by her that I didn’t love. With this one is not different and I truly recommend it to everyone. Now I have to deal with the wait for the second book, that unfortunately is due only to next year.
