There's this girl...
Heidi and I have been trading hungry looks all year, and everything she does makes me smile. But I don't do girlfriends, and I certainly can't get involved with the league commissioner's daughter. I need shots on goal, not a hookup and a widely misunderstood paparazzi photo.
Can I resist her, though? The way she teases me should be a game penalty for interference with my libido. 

There's this guy...
Jason wants me, but he won't admit it. That man looks at me the way a hockey player eyes the lunch buffet after practice--and I love it.
But when victory is finally within my grasp, I blow it and humiliate myself. Even then I can't even avoid him--as the team intern, I'm in constant view of his hard body and cocky smile.
I need another chance. Jason Castro is about to learn the true meaning of an overnight sensation.

In Review: My Thoughts

You can bet anytime Sarina Bowen has a new release, I’m going to be all over it. Overnight Sensation was no exception. Now, I didn’t get around to reading it until a little later than I’d like because of real life. But, once I started it, I didn’t want to put it down. Heidi charmed me from the very start and I adored Jason. Who doesn’t love a Dickens-quoting hockey player after all?

Heidi and Jason were so, so good together. I loved their friends-first, basically forbidden romance. Why forbidden? Well, she’s the league commissioner’s daughter and he’s a player. Her dad? Not the nicest guy, either. He’s a hard ass who is running her life and holding her inheritance over her head because he doesn’t approve of her choices. You know the type. But, enough about him. Heidi and Jason were delightful. I loved their banter and chemistry. It was impossible not to root for them.

Bottom line: Overnight Sensation was a fantastic read. I’m not surprised. There’s a reason Sarina is one of my go-to authors. Heidi and Jason’s story was swoony, sexy and just fun. It was fun to watch them connect and, if I’m honest, just as much fun to watch Heidi grow. Naturally, we got glimpses into the lives of our other Bruisers faves. I’ve missed them. Now I’m going to chomp at the bit until I get Silas’s story. I smell a setup for a second chance romance…

Favorite Quotes:

“Um, when I said we were going to my place, I just meant—”
“Sex! Dirty, filthy sex. Sweaty, clawing, pounding, burn-your-soul-to-the-ground-sex!”

“Maybe I jinxed myself quoting Dickens during training camp. Like—now my whole season is going to be like Oliver Twist. ‘Please, sir. May I have a goal?'”

I put my whole heart into everything I do. Sometimes the universe just doesn’t care, though. You can make a wish list as long as you like. And come away with nothing.

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.
