Hard Hitter ( A Brooklyn Bruisers Novel)
by Sarina Bowen
Release Date:January 3, 2017
From the USA Today bestselling author of Rookie Move comes the second novel in the series that’s hot enough to melt the ice.
He’s a fighter in the rink, but he’s about to learn that playing nice can help you score…
As team captain and enforcer, Patrick O’Doul puts the bruise in the Brooklyn Bruisers. But after years of hard hits, O’Doul is feeling the burn, both physically and mentally. He conceals his pain from his coach and trainers, but when his chronic hip injury becomes too obvious to ignore, they send him for sessions with the team’s massage therapist.
After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Ari Bettini is in need of peace of mind. For now, she’s decided to focus on her work: rehabilitating the Bruisers’ MVP. O’Doul is easy on the eyes, but his reaction to her touch is ice cold. Ari is determined to help O’Doul heal, but as the tension between them turns red hot, they both learn that a little TLC does the body good…
Hard Hitter delivers a perfect pair with O’Doul and Ari. I’ve come to expect the unexpected when it comes to author Sarina Bowen and this second book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series is no exception. The story line is much deeper than your average steamy romance, though there’s plenty of that too. 😉
I’m loving these Brooklyn Bruisers and the ladies that surround them. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series!
I give Hard Hitter 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars!
