In high school they were the perfect couple — until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold…
Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach — who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist — his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.
Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do — and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast….
As it should come to no surprise by now, I’ve read Rookie Move with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much, as a buddy read, so check out her blog in the next couple of days for her take on it.
So far, everything I’ve read by Sarina Bowen, I loved! This book was no exception. Once again the writing was captivating, and really enjoyable. I’m more of a 1st person narrative fan, so the fact that the book was told in the third person was not my favorite thing, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I loved both main characters, that’s not much to say about it: they’re AMAZING! Actually, I kind of liked everyone in this book. Georgia was fierce and strong, whether she was Princess or Killer, she was awesome all the way. And Leo? Leo was kind of dreamy! The way he knew what he wanted and went after it was great. But mostly, the way he loved Georgia was the most amazing thing of all.
Their connection and relationship was great as well. Even though we don’t get to see how their first relationship went, we get a few glimpses, that are enough to let us know the depth of which it went and how perfect they are for each other, since the time they were both 16. Their connection as adults is even better, because they have known the difference between being with each other and without, and with is definitly the better option.
The plot is great as well, and I liked that their conflicts came from within, from their own fears and limitations, and not from external sources.
All in all, I really loved this story. It was cute and funny and heartfelt, and it made me laugh and cry and swoon like crazy. I can’t wait for the next story in this series.
