I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle her personal life with the same zeal that she brings to her successful agency.
A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner with a bad reputation. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.
She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.
Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…
Sure Shot, a new stand-alone hockey romance from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.
5 goals (stars) for the win!
I love being in the Bruisers’ world and am always immensely happy reading about this group of hockey players and the women who love them. The series tie-in/crossover with the not to be missed True North series is fun. It’s always great to catch up with the characters and live in the Tuxbury world too.
This lovely tie in involves hockey agent Bess Berringer (sister to Dave from Bountiful ), and new to roster defensemen Mark Tankiewicz. This forbidden romance certainly gave me all the feels and left me gaga over the “Tank”. Bess is exactly the woman to heal his broken heart, to make his world right.
Bess and Tank have a history, and nine years later they still can’t quell their attraction to each other. They share a very palpable physical chemistry and although they try to keep it “just physical”, there’s no stopping the emotional pull. This made for an incredibly sensual read. Bowen weaves in some formidable reasons to keep it their hook-ups secret, but that only intensifies their need for each other. Bess has a five-year plan that Tank isn’t an obvious candidate to participate in, but just as she’s great for him, he’s great for her. Giving her the much-needed reason to personalize her involvement in her agency’s players.
What’s not a secret is that I adore Sarina Bowen’s writing and as a long time follower, I am confident to recommend any and all books by her. Sure Shot is another shining example of why I am a fan. 5 Stars!
