Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen *VIDEO REVIEW*

Pipe Dreams (Brooklyn Bruisers 3)

by Sarina Bowen

Release Date: May 2, 2017

KBN Rating:



A goalie has to trust his instincts, even when taking a shot to the heart…

Mike Beacon is a champion at defending the net, but off the ice, he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never forgotten Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers office during the playoffs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right.

Lauren hates that she’s forced to travel with the team she used to work for and the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go down that road again. She’s focused on her plans for the future—she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true.

Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach.

One of Mike’s biggest fans doesn’t approve—his teenage daughter. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.



Just as with all of Sarina Bowen’s books this book I felt that this story is a little deeper than your average romance.

She tends to explore different aspects of life when telling her love stories and you’re left with an added life lesson in addition to your happily ever after.

Mike and Lauren’s story was a little more emotionally difficult for me to read personally than the previous books in this series but I think that just made me love them more.

I give Pipe Dreams 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars!

I CAN NOT WAIT to read Nate and Becca’s story in the next book! 😉
