Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

Title: Brooklynaire

Author: Sarina Bowen 

Date of Publication: February 12, 2018



You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?

Christina’s 5 Star Review

I’ll admit from the start that I have not read the first three books in the series, and I will rectify that, but if you too haven’t read the first three, fear not, you’ll do just fine.

I love geeks. Geeks in romance are even better so it was easy for me to fall in love with Nate. The self-made tech billionaire purchased an NHL team and has moved his assistant Rebecca to fulfill the role of his assistant there. She had been with his tech firm from the very start, when they were operating out of a nondescript office with a ping pong table. She’s not happy with the move but Nate has his reasons for moving her there.

Rebecca injures herself and Nate, with motives Rebecca is clueless about, offers to let her move in with him until she’s recovered. He takes an active role in her rehab, and really begins to understand the depth of his feelings for her. Rebecca has been attracted to Nate from the start. She keeps that attraction to herself because she does not want to destroy the employee/employer relationship she has with him. Little do they know, their feelings are mutual, but what will it take to make them act on them? Does Nate have a secret he’s been hiding when it comes to the team?

You can’t go wrong with Bowen and Brooklynaire is no exception. I loved Nate and Rebecca from the very first page and it was one of those books that you don’t want to end. Their slow burn chemistry was off the charts and the supporting characters were great. And Nate…he’s swoon-worthy, book boyfriend material. The book is told in the first person from both Nate and Rebecca’s points of view, which I loved, especially getting inside Nate’s head. From what I have gathered from others, this volume of the series wasn’t focused as much on the hockey aspect, so if sports romances aren’t for you, you would love this book. For the sports fan, there is enough of the supporting characters from the previous books, so there are enough mentions about the players from previous volumes to spark your interest.
