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…
I’ve been floating in a reading slump recently and Bombshells was the book to break me out of it. I’m a huge fan of women’s sports, specifically soccer, but I do love hockey romances. So a romance about two hockey players and developing a new women’s hockey team is right up my alley. I really enjoyed both Anton and Sylvie and watching their relationship bloom. Especially since it started as a friendship and included delightful moments. The scenes were they were teaching swimming were really adorable. I did feel like both characters could have been a little more fleshed out. Sylvie spent too much of the book waiting Bryce, although once she moved on from him, she was done and I did like that. With Anton, too, it felt like we could have learned more about him. Despite that lack of character depth, I did enjoy the story. While the sneaking around wasn’t my favorite, overall I was pulled into the story.
