The women's league is in the house! And Brooklyn will never be the same again for Anton Bayer and the team…

This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.

Contains: a defenseman with dreamy blue eyes, a female goalie with bad ideas, a major battle of the sexes and a swimming pool scene...

Whenever Sarina Bowen has a new Brooklyn/Brooklyn Bruisers coming book out, I'm always on board, and I was definitely excited for Anton's story! We've seen a few other Bayers in various books already, and we've gotten to know a bit about Anton already...but in BOMBSHELLS we finally get to know him even better...and let me tell you, if you liked him even a little bit in the other books, you will absolutely ADORE him in BOMBSHELLS

Anton and Sylvie were both wonderful main characters! They were driven, generous, and just fantastic people...and together...WOW! Their chemistry was obvious from the very first moment that they saw each other...and I was super here for it! I loved how their friendship and relationship evolved, and I really loved that we now have Brooklyn's new women's hockey team in this series, the Bombshells! It was so wonderful to get to see these new characters, and I'm super excited to see more of them...and to get more of Anton and Sylvie in future books, too! The only thing that I wasn't a huge fan of with BOMBSHELLS was that the past love interest part (the heart break mentioned in the description) just dragged on a bit too much for me. I would've preferred more moments between the Bombshells players and/or some more romance-y bits rather than have more on that particular character...but I was still super satisfied with what was there, just saying. :P

 Overall, I thought that BOMBSHELLS was wonderful! I loved Sylvie and Anton, and their chemistry was phenomenal! I only bumped one star off because I wanted a little less dwelling on past crushes, and a little more of the romance, and the new Bombshells team! I'd recommend this one to anyone who loves steamy, flirty, contemporary romances--even if you're not a big sports fan, I think you'll love this one. :)
