A goalie has to trust his instincts, even when taking a shot to the heart…
Mike Beacon is a champion at defending the net, but off the ice, he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never forgotten Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers office during the playoffs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right.
Lauren hates that she’s forced to travel with the team she used to work for and the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go down that road again. She’s focused on her plans for the future—she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true.
Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach.
One of Mike’s biggest fans doesn’t approve—his teenage daughter. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!!! Who is my GO-TO author for ALL THINGS sports romances? Yep, it’s ALWAYS Sarina Bowen! This woman gives us THE BEST characters and THE MOST scintillating and most entertaining storylines out there. I always DEVOUR anything this woman lays out for me and they are ALWAYS one-night reads. Once you start, there is ABSOLUTELY NO putting it down.
“Come here, sweetheart.” … “I need to kiss you.”
And there goes my heart! Mike Beacon is just EVERYTHING! That man! JESUS! I just want to EAT HIM UP! And Lauren Williams? Man, is she a spitfire or what? She is determined, independent, feisty, and bitter and HOLY HELL is that a lethal combination for sexy goalie Mike Beacon. She let him burn her before, and she has absolutely NO PLANS to get burned again, no matter how frustratingly sexy that man is. Even though she is forced to work with the team and the sport she ran away from years before, she has no plans on changing her new life’s course. And Mike? Well, he has no place in it as far as she’s concerned. She can get through this. She can resist his charms. She can do her job and then get as far away from Mike as she can. This is all just a blip on the radar and she will not be swayed. But the gorgeous, sweet-talkin’ goalie has different plans for Lauren. He plans to fight and fight hard to get Lauren back in his life. He knows she wants that to. He just needs to convince her of that fact.
“This feels right. We feel right. Whether it’s two years that passed or twenty-two, if I hold you in my arms it will always feel exactly right.”
A sports romance filled with so much passion and intensity, PIPE DREAMS was another INCREDIBLE installment of one of my favorite sports romance series, the BROOKLYN BRUISERS series. All of these characters are just so WONDERFUL and I cannot get enough of them. Sarina Bowen gives us gorgeous and strong hockey studs that quickly fall to the feet of beautiful and sassy women. The pairing of Mike and Lauren is just pure MAGIC and I loved every single SEXY and EMOTIONAL moment of it. I NEVER want this series to end!
