Overnight Sensation (Brooklyn Bruisers #5) by Sarina Bowen


Everyone knows the girl is off limits. But it's so good to be bad.

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.

Jason frustrated the hell out of me. I didn't understand why he was so hung up on a girl that he was in love with in high school and unable to attach to anyone else after all these years. He wants one night with Heidi, no connections, no future and no hassles. His stubbornness royally pissed me off. I’m not saying he was an asshole about it, but he wasn’t seeing any other future for himself and that was so annoying.

I really liked Heidi. I appreciated that she never tried to change Jason just accepted his rules.  She did whatever she could to make sure she didn't fawn all over him no matter how much she wanted to. And she was a perfect fit for the rest of the team. They all loved her. That should have been a dead giveaway that she was perfect for him.

The only thing I thought was slightly unrealistic was how Heidi dealt with her father’s betrayal. That was some straight up bullshit, and she was just, oh well, that's fine… I don't buy it, no matter how sweet and understanding she was. No one is that good.
