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 play-offs, 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.
#PipeDreams by @SarinaBowen @BerkleyRomance is a MUST read! #hockeyromance #brooklynbruisers3
My favorite genre from my favorite author in this genre… yes please! Pipe Dreams is a great second chance romance from Sarina Bowen. This Brooklyn Bruisers series continues to get better with each installment and this one is on point… hockey/sports romance at its best!
There is simply so much to love about this story… the backstory, the angst, the pleading, and the finally giving in is the slowest and best burn ever. Hockey books and Sarina Bowen are synonymous at this point and from the that small preview at the end of Hard Hitter, I knew deep in my heart, that Lauren and Mike’s book was going to put me through the wringer in the absolute best possible way. Their chemistry is intense, their story is painful, and their second chance at love again is inevitable. Fall in love with Mike Beacon and root for Lauren’s HEA in this amazing story… a must read for sure!
