[Book Review] Bombshells by Sarina Bowen


The women’s league is in the house! And Brooklyn will never be the same again for Anton Bayer and the team…

This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.

Contains: a defenseman with dreamy blue eyes, a female goalie with bad ideas, a major battle of the sexes and a swimming pool scene…

Ahh, I love love loved this story. Sylvie and Anton are totally adorable. This book was addictive – I didn’t want to put it down. I really liked the female hockey team all the girls are so sassy and fierce it was fantastic. 

Sylvie has been given this opportunity on the women’s hockey team bombshells, but she is still pining for Bryce Campeau a player on the men’s team who she thinks is the person she is destined to be with until she befriends Anton. Their attraction is undeniable and has Sylvie questioning everything she thought she knew. Meanwhile, Anton is trying to come back from his not so great performance last season, his priority is proving to his coach and himself that he has what it takes. He has no time for distractions… that is until he meets Sylvie

I enjoyed the fact that even though you could feel the attraction between these characters – they became friends first before any romantic stuff happened, which doesn’t happen and a lot of the time in most romance books. I also liked how Sylvie kept Anton on his toes – it was highly entertaining. 

In a Nutshell… 

This was another fantastic read from Sarina and a clear reason why she is one of my one-click authors. If you love the other books in the Brooklyn Bruisers Series you won’t want to miss this one. 

My Rating: 4/5  🌟🌟🌟🌟
