New Release Review: Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen

Overnight Sensation
A standalone in the Brooklyn Bruisers series
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.

My review: 5 stars!
Sarina Bowen is always a one-click author for me, and her Brooklyn Bruisers series is at the top of my Favorite Series Ever list. But I'll have to admit that I wasn't sure Heidi Jo (Hot Pepper! Ha!) could be redeemed- I did not care for her eager puppy vibe in previous meets in the series, so I wasn't sure if she could carry an entire book. Now Jason Castro- I didn't doubt for a second that he could. I am so happy to say I was so wrong about Heidi- I adored every sassy, saucy misunderstood part of her and found her to be quite charming in the end! And even more, I delighted in their pairing! They were SO GOOD together!

"You didn't plan on loving me."
"Nope!" he says cheerfully, "I love you against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be."

Swoon! Bowen scored big with Overnight Sensation- it's full of her trademark wit and heat, and fantastic side characters- more Silas please! Overall, an excellent installment in a favorite series.
