Loved the book! I’m loving the Brooklyn Bruisers series. Love anything written by Sarina Bowen.
6 years ago, back in high school, Georgia and Leo were the perfect couple. Suddenly Georgia breaks it off with Leo. 6 years later, Leo is drafted to the Brooklyn Bruisers where Georgia is the team publicist. It’s the first time in 6 years that they’ve seen each other. Georgia just wants to keep everything professional to help hide her hurt and also to keep her job. What they both don’t know is that they’ve both had a tough time since they last saw each other because they’ve never actually gotten over each other. And suddenly Leo’s feelings are made perfectly clear to Georgia (and the entire world) at a press conference the microphone picks up Leo threatening another player about how they have just spoken to “the love of my life”. The past needs to be dug up before they can both truly move on whether it’s as individuals or as a couple...
It took me a bit to get into this, I haven’t read a sports romance in ages, but I can trust Sarina for a good, well written book. Leo was an absolute sweetie in this book. Georgia had broken his heart when they were 18 and went to seperate colleges but now that they were working in the same space again they realised they still had a lot of love for each other. I love a good second chance romance and these two didn’t disappoint.
So loved this story. Of a second chance that they just couldn’t let go of. Mis understandings in the past that had them parting. Once they both knew the truth nothing could stop them from being together. Narration was awesome too.
Rookie Move isn’t my first Sarina Bowen book, and it wont be my last. Every Sarina Bowen book that I read, I end up falling in love with.
Rookie Move is a second chance romance about Leo and Georgia and I loved their story. I could feel their connection throughout the whole story, I felt their passion for each other and their love. I enjoyed this book so much. I loved Leo a lot and I loved how he was with Georgia, he was sweet and devoted and cared about her so much. Their relationship was so amazing. Georgia works hard to over come some obstacles that she faced but they were both meant to be. I felt their emotions as they went through the motions of finding each other again after being gone from each others lives.
I really liked this book, it was a really sweet second chance romance that had me smiling. I enjoyed reading it and I would recommend it to anyone that loves a super sweet hero or a light and easy romance. I can’t wait for the next instalment in the series.

Do you remember your first love? I remember in Grade 1 a boy was sitting next to me on the floor while the teacher read us a story. This little boy bent forward, kissed my knee, looked up at me and told me he loved me. At the time, I wasn’t ready for love. It also didn’t help that he had a wart on his knee and that was ALL I saw. Scary, that I still remember the first boy who told me he loved me. Scarier still, is that I feel guilty for writing him off because he had a wart on his knee. I blame my shallowness on my youth…
Rookie Move is about first loves, feelings of forever, and being too young to trust what you have when something terrible rocks your world. Georgia is a strong, intelligent and hardworking woman who loves her job. She’s young and has been fortunate enough to be given a job as the PR officer for the Brooklyn Bruisers. At the moment the job is for the interim, but she’s determined to work extra hard to make it permanent. Her first gig does not go to plan. Her Dad is the newly appointed coach and is going off his nut about a trade that happened without his authorisation/input. The young billionaire owner of the Bruisers struck a deal…and that’s it. So, of course, they’re butting heads, and some of the press can overhear their shouting match. Georgia tries to calm the situation down even though she doesn’t know the full story or who the new draftee is. Then she catches a peak, recognises his gait, sees his profile and hears his voice…she knows him.
Leo Trevi has hit the BIG TIME! He can hardly believe that all his hard work is finally paying off. He’s going to be playing hockey for the Brooklyn Bruisers, his first shot at playing in the NHL. Leo is going to bust a gut to get a spot on the team and stay on the team. Unfortunately, it seems that everything that could go wrong does go wrong. He calls out his captain (In the bestest, bestest, bestest way), gets snubbed by his coach and comes face to face with the love of his life.
Rookie Move was one of those books. Happy buzz’s, warm fluttery feeling in my belly and silly grins at the end, prove to me that this book was something special. We take a look back at Georgia and Leo’s lives and see what has led them up to this point. While they were together they were perfectly happy and perfectly in love. Their past had good times but when they came to the end it was at their worst. Now, Georgia realises she has been lonely without even knowing it. Leo sees he has been settling for psycho chick girlfriends who want him for his puck.
It wasn’t just Georgia and Leo that were affected by the end of their relationship. Both their families suffered too. That is why Georgia’s dad was not meeting Leo with open arms.
When they are face to face and within touching distance the overwhelming feelings they had six years ago cannot be denied. They missed each other. Some misunderstandings need to be cleared up and communication needs to be introduced so that the past can be dealt with and everyone can move on.
I really, really enjoyed Rookie Move. I loved the characters, the scenery and the dialogue. Sarina Bowen has given us an epic introduction to this series and I can not wait for more.
There are some authors that as soon as you open that first page you know that you are going to love it. Rookie Move was no exception, I loved this book from the first word.
I'm a big fan of sports romance and this would have to be one of my favs that I have read so far. I am so happy that we are getting more from the Bruisers (may have even preordered the next book when I got to the end of this one).
To me when I pick up a Sarina White Bowen book I know I'm going to love it, I know that's a bit of pressure but so far I have not been disappointed and can't see me being disappointed, love the authors writing and stories
This book had everything, there was some angst, second chance love, drama it made me laugh and it made me cry. I also have a hot new book boyfriend to add to my list lol, I would love me some Leo he was just beautiful and I loved Georgia they were the most likeable characters.
Super super excited for the next Brooklyn Bruiser books and can't wait to see what Sarina brings to the Ice.
This is the first standalone in a brand-spanking-new series by the brilliant Ms Bowen. When I first saw this book up on NetGalley, I requested it so fast, my finger hurt and was utterly honored to be selected to review.
This book is a gorgeous second-chance sports romance (perfect combination!) between Brooklyn Bruisers rookie, Leo Trevi and team publicist, Georgia Worthington. Leo and Georgia were so in love and only imagined a future with each other when their world was cruelly destroyed on the night Georgia was attacked. Events led to their breakup and now, six years later, they meet again on a professional level.
I adored Leo! I loved that he's not your typical player resisting love. No, he's always known Georgia was the love of his life and he just needed a chance to let her know that. His treatment of her was so so sweet. I couldn't help but fall in love with him and I think Leo is what every fictional male should aspire to be!
I could understand Georgia and the logic behind her reasoning and for pushing Leo away. I wanted to smack her, but I understood. She's a strong woman who has overcome something horrific and you can't forget that. She's also worked so hard to get where she is professionally and one has to admire that and appreciate why she's not willing to settle or give up.
Leo and Georgia belonged together and it was obvious from their first second encounter. The feelings were deep and so true that they couldn't be denied and damn the consequences. It was a beautiful second chance story that I enjoyed immensely.
I've come to realize that whatever Bowen chooses to write, whether it's a second chance romance or recovering addicts or sexy athletes, she, without fail, manages to paint a beautiful picture and get the reader invested from the word go. This first book in the new series was fantastic and one I absolutely recommend. I loved getting to know some of the secondary characters and am beyond eager for O'Doul's story next.
