Story Overview: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....
I am so excited about this book...mainly because it was so good and it's just the first book in this series so that means there are more books to come. YES!
This was a second chance at love story. The book starts with Georgia. She works as the PR person for the Brooklyn Bruisers, but on the first day of her handling the main job, she finds out that both her father and her high school ex are coming to work for the team. Dad as the coach. Leo as the rookie player that dad does NOT want on his team, but Leo was hired by the owner without consulting the new coach.
For Leo, Georgia was the woman who broke him. They were seniors in high school and her world imploded in a single night taking her relationship with Leo with it. Truly, neither one of them ever recovered.
This book has all the feels. There's heartache galore, but there are also light and funny moments. Moments that twisted my heart and made it swell with possibilities.
Seriously, this book was so good. I picked it up when someone mentioned just how good it was and it lived up to everything I hoped. Such a good, good read. It had just the perfect amount of hockey story line mixed in with the incredible romance. Then there were the friends of both the MC"s that I loved getting to know. I just loved everything about it.
And the narrators for the audiobook nailed the voices. Absolutely fantastic!
I highly, highly recommend it and cannot wait for books #2 and #3 to come out. So excited for this new series.
