About the Book:

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, successful sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle a few goals in her personal life.

A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that five year plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.

She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.

Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…









The Excerpt:

Tank: Did you SEE that beautiful goal???

Bess: Yes baby. That’s why I sent you a text last night that said NICE GOAL BABY in shouty caps. Didn’t it come through?

Tank: It came through. But I just wanted to talk about it some more. Because did you SEE that beautiful goal? When Castro accidentally passed to nowhere but I got my stick on it anyway? And before you could say TANK IS A STUD, I put it in?

Bess: Gorgeous goal, hot stuff! I may have spilled my beer I was so excited.

Tank: Where did you spill it?

Bess: All over my naked breasts.

Tank: Really?

Bess: No. But the purpose of this conversation is stroking your ego, right? So I thought I’d just roll with it.

Tank: LOL! I’ll take it.


Tank: You were right, by the way. After the game, Castro told me I had to get the Brooklyn Bridge tattooed across my ass.

Bess: Well that’s a good sign. If they’re pranking you it means they like you now.

Tank: I got a goal. They like that at least.

Bess: What did you tell Castro about the tattoo?

Tank: I said, sure, buddy!

Tank: And, get this, I told him that if we connect on ten goals this season—in either direction—not only will I put the bridge on one ass cheek, I’ll put his face on the other.

Bess: OMG. What did he say to that?

Tank: “Let’s not get carried away.” Honestly he looked terrified, which was the point. I told him I was just crazy enough to do it. And then I wondered aloud what the blogs would write about that.

Bess: You are an evil man.

Tank: Never bullshit a bullshitter. But enough about me. Let’s talk about you. Specifically, I need to know if you’re naked right now. Please say yes.

Bess: I’m sitting in my office waiting for a conference call. So that would be no.

Tank: Lie to me, baby! I miss you.

Bess: There’s no need to lie. The next time we’re in the same zip code again, you can make your dreams come true.

Tank: Now there’s a plan I can get behind. Literally.

Bess: Indeed. Got to go now! Call starts in two minutes.

Tank: One more thing, hot stuff. Have you seen Henry again? I keep leaving voicemails, asking when I can visit. He texts me back, but I can’t get a phone call. I just want to talk to the old codger.

Bess: Same. I sent him a present but when I asked to visit he shot me down. Now go beat Florida.

Tank: Maybe you should send me a few motivational photographs to improve my game.

Bess: A good workout followed by a protein drink and then a nap would improve it more.

Tank: Says you.

Bess: I am a professional. I know things. Get some rest! I’ll be watching tonight.

The Review:

5 Stars!!  There’s something magical inside every Brooklyn Bruisers book…and I could certainly take the time to dissect each one to figure out what it is.  But I don’t want to.  I simply want to crawl inside these stories and enjoy the romance, the friendships, and the happiness.  Each time I pick up one of these books I know that I’ll come out smiling…and that’s such a rare gift.  Ms. Bowen’s writing is my happy place and her characters are like friends I can count on to provide me with a few hours of fun, laughter, tears, and entertainment.

Bess Beringer and Mark Tankiewicz (aka Tank) are meant to be.  Even if the obstacles are many and the risks are high, their romance is one that needs to happen.  Bess is strong, successful, and determined to follow her 5 year plan.  A plan that doesn’t include Tank, a grumpy yet charming hockey player with whom she had a short-lived fling in the past.  But, alas, the heart wants what it wants and these two are powerless to fight the pull towards each other.  And, for every step forward they seems to take two back…but that’s what makes their story so charming.  As their hearts and their minds war over the practicality of their potential relationship, the universe keeps putting them in a position that makes it impossible for them to fight the inevitable.

Bess and Tank had true chemistry and brought all the feels.  I couldn’t help but root for them to find a place where both were comfortable moving forward. Their ups and downs felt very real and their ultimate HEA was everything I wanted.  I loved these two.  But, also, I love this group of hockey players and strong women who feel like a true family and who’s friendships are the strength that binds these stories.  Ms. Bowen has a way with words but she also has a talent for developing a true family feel within each of her series.  And, as a reader, no world is more real than that of friends and family…the romance is just the icing on the cake!  I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Brooklyn Bruisers universe!
