[Book Review] The New Guy by Sarina Bowen


A new male/male hockey romance from 24-time USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen!

My name is Hudson Newgate, but my teammates call me New Guy.

That was my nickname in Chicago, too. And Vancouver. That’s what happens when you keep getting traded. Brooklyn is my last chance, especially after my poor performance last season.

But I can make this work. The new guy knows to keep his head down and shoot the puck. The new guy puts the game first.

What he doesn’t do is hook up with the other new guy—a hot athletic trainer who lives in my building. Gavin needs this job with my team. He’s a single dad with responsibilities.

We can’t be a couple. My arrogant agent–who’s also my father–will lose his mind if I’m dating a dude. And my team needs me to score goals, not whip up a media circus.

Too bad Gavin and I are terrible at resisting each other…

First let me say I love all of Sarina’s previous MM novels, so I know she always hits the mark in this genre.

This was an enjoyable read. I thought the storyline was well thought out and it kept me engaged right to the last page. I preferred Gavin over Hudson. Gavin is such a sweetheart, and my heart broke for him after learning about his past. Hudson was a little frustrating to say the least! I wanted to scream at him at times, but he did make good in the end, so all is forgiven.

I enjoyed the pacing of the book and as usual the writing was super, I could read Sarina’s books all day and not be bored.

Overall a fantastic read.

My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
