Cover Reveal: SUPERFAN, a new Brooklyn Bruisers Sports Romance by Sarina Bowen

Coming Soon from Sarina Bowen…

Front Cover of Superfan, by Sarina Bowen


Sometimes lady luck shakes your hand, and sometimes she smacks your face. Sometimes she does both on the same day.

Three years ago I met the most amazing woman. We were both down on our luck. Then I got that call—the one that tells you to get your buns on a plane to go meet your destiny.

But the girl was left behind. I didn’t have her phone number, and she didn’t know my real name.

While I became a professional hockey player, she became a superstar, with platinum records and legions of fans. And a slick, music producer boyfriend who treated her badly.

But fate wasn’t done with us yet. When Delilah turns up at a hockey game, I can’t resist making contact. The internet swoons when I ask her out on a date.

She might not remember me. But her jerkface ex does. He’ll do anything to keep us apart.

Good thing athletes never give up. This time I’m playing for keeps.

Bonus…An Excerpt from SUPERFAN!

“Would you like a beer?” the cute bartender asks me.

I glance at the pile of mint leaves on his cutting board and hesitate. “Sure,” I say. But the mint looks so fresh and pretty.

“I could make you something different.”

“Beer is great. A cold…”

“—lager,” he finishes. “No glass, no opener.”

When I look up to flash him a smile, my heart does a little somersault. Those kind eyes are smiling at me, too. “Thank you,” I whisper.

“It’s really no problem.” He turns toward the beer cooler. “You’re an easy customer, trust me.”

But I really meant—thank you for remembering. As he leans down to grab a bottle for me, I find myself admiring the strong muscles in his back. Stop it, I admonish myself. It only gets worse when he turns around and places the bottle in front of me. I’ve never seen hands like his. I didn’t even know wrists could look muscular.

Even so. Ogling him is not why I came here. I pull out my keychain opener and remove the cap from my beer.

He discards it, gives me another pleasant smile and then picks up his paring knife again.

I take a sip, wondering when he’s going to mention my show at the Coconut Club. He was there. I saw him.

He separates some mint leaves from their stems and says nothing.

I last about seventeen seconds. “Well?”

“Well?” He looks up. “Sorry?”

“Jesus lord.” I close my eyes and then open them again. This is not going how I’d hoped it would. “What did you think?

“Of…?” His amazing eyes are studying me.

“Forget I asked.” I take a swig of beer.

“Think about what?” He pushes the cutting board aside, and his smile turns knowing.

“My set at the Coconut Club! I saw you holding up that wall in the back. Don’t lie.”

He tips his head back and lets out a sudden laugh. “I’m so busted. I loved your show, but I didn’t expect you to spot me.”

“You loved it so much you weren’t going to say anything?” The sentence sounds crazy to my own ears. I put down the beer. “You know what? Never mind. I’m just being psycho right now. This town is getting into my head.”

“Listen, girly.” He braces both (muscular!) hands on the bar and looks me right in the eye. “I loved it so much that I don’t even know what to say about it. From that moment at the beginning—when you shut that asshole’s maw? To the part where you made a lady cry.” He shakes his head. “I couldn’t look away. And I never wanted it to end.”

I give him a slow blink, just trying to take that in. It’s so much more than I was even hoping to hear.

“Shit, Delilah. If that set doesn’t win you whatever contract you’re looking for, they don’t even deserve you.”

Something warm and unfamiliar settles into the center of my belly. “That might be the nicest thing anyone ever said to me. Which only means you’re still trying to get my phone number.”

He laughs immediately. “Can’t both things be true? Both my musical assessment and my interest in your evening plans?”

“Because you know so much about music.” I flip my hair and take another sip of beer.

“Look. I don’t know shit about music. But I know plenty about talent.” He leans down on a set of forearms I shouldn’t be noticing. “I know that talent sometimes takes a nap at just the wrong moment, but it never stays asleep for long. I also know that luck matters, too. If they don’t give you what you want, it won’t be your fucking fault.”

“Thank you,” I say quietly.

But he’s not done. “I saw something else valuable the other night. You’re good in the clinch. And that counts for double, I swear to God.”

“The clinch?”

“Yeah. You’re not just good at practice.” He pauses, wrinkling up his interesting nose. “What word would a musician use? Okay—you’re not a rehearsal musician. That stage was like your home. Either that or you fake it really well. That’s going to pay your rent someday, I promise.”

“Wow.” It’s like he looked right into my terrified little soul and found the very thing I needed to hear. Those beautiful eyes of his are practically burning me right now, so I have to look away. “Thank you. Really. I really needed that pep talk.”

I make the mistake of looking up at him again, and, for a split second, I see pure yearning. It’s like our souls vibrate at exactly the same frequency. And I have no idea what to do with that.

My Review of Pucked Under

Pucked Under (Pucked, #4.5)Pucked Under by Helena Hunting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Randy Ballistic and Lily LeBlanc return to reveal more of their story, and to take their relationship to a much deeper level in Pucked Under, a novella from the Pucked series by Helena Hunting. I’ve loved every book in this series – and every time a new release comes out, I think I love the latest couple more. But the truth is, I love them all, for different reasons. Every story is full of outrageous comedy, some of the quirkiest characters in any series I’ve ever read. Every story grabs you and holds you from beginning to end.

But for some reason, Randy and Lily are currently at the top of my list, because they are the true soul-mates of the series. In Pucked Over, you can tell they are destined to be together; Pucked Under tells you why. With all the heat and humor of the rest of the series, Pucked Under brings the heart that holds it all together.

Pucked Under answers some important questions about Randy: the source of his fears, his insecurities, his weaknesses and his strengths. We’re reminded of the lasting damage of a toxic childhood – how it pervades every action, every decision, every relationship. What a struggle it is to overcome, and how important it is that the right person, at the right time, appears in your life to fight those demons with you.

Pucked Under is angsty, but not overly-dramatic; it’s tender, thoughtful and poignant. It’s real and relatable. It’s a quick, powerful read that, as usual, I couldn’t put down.

If you haven’t read this series, you should start today – or at least start with Pucked Over, and go straight to its sequel. I suggest you lock the doors, put out the do not disturb sign, grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and savor Helena’s latest masterpiece at your own pace. I’m ready to read it again.

I don’t think I could ever get tired of this story or these characters – and if Lance Romero is next, I’ll be eternally grateful.

About The Goal…

She’s good at achieving her goals…

College senior Sabrina James has her whole future planned out: graduate from college, kick butt in law school, and land a high-paying job at a cutthroat firm. Her path to escaping her shameful past certainly doesn’t include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all she’s willing to give John Tucker, but sometimes, one night is all it takes for your entire life to change.

But the game just got a whole lot more complicated…

Tucker believes being a team player is as important as being the star. On the ice, he’s fine staying out of the spotlight, but when it comes to becoming a daddy at the age of twenty-two, he refuses to be a bench warmer. It doesn’t hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrina’s heart is locked up tight, and the fiery brunette is too stubborn to accept his help. If he wants a life with the woman of his dreams, he’ll have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

My Review of The Goal

The Goal (Off-Campus, #4)The Goal by Elle Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What’s not to love about the latest Off-Campus novel by Elle Kennedy? Absolutely nothing. It is flawlessly written and full of life, with all the heat and heart you’ve come to expect from this outstanding author.

If anything, Tucker, the hero, is almost too perfect – one of the best book boyfriends I’ve ever fantasized about. There isn’t a man alive that could measure up to this sexy, funny, romantic, loyal and athletic hunk of hockey hotness, so enjoy every moment you spend with him. His heroine, Sabrina, is a complicated, highly independent, funny, stubborn, driven young woman who is simultaneously immensely frustrating and completely endearing. Together, their chemistry is off the charts hot. When they’re apart, each struggling with their own fears and feelings, you positively ache for them.

This is no insta-love story; it’s a story of two very different personalities that, together, become whole. There are twists and turns along the way, any of which could derail their growing relationship, but the strength of each character shines through when you need it most.

Elle perfectly weaves the right amount of humor, angst, and poignance into every scene. I read it in a single sitting because I didn’t want to let this couple go. Now I wish I could go back again and read it for the first time.

Each book in this series reads perfectly as a standalone, but read in order, the story of these hockey buddies, their loves and losses, their individual journeys and pitfalls elevates this series to an entirely new level, actively engaging and enrapturing the reader from start to finish. I can’t wait to see whose story comes next.
