Hard Hitter(A Brooklyn Bruisers Novel) Review post

Published January 3, 2017 by bookbesties


From the USA Today bestselling author of Rookie Move comes the second novel in the series that’s hot enough to melt the ice.
He’s a fighter in the rink, but he’s about to learn that playing nice can help you score…
As team captain and enforcer, Patrick O’Doul puts the bruise in the Brooklyn Bruisers. But after years of hard hits, O’Doul is feeling the burn, both physically and mentally. He conceals his pain from his coach and trainers, but when his chronic hip injury becomes too obvious to ignore, they send him for sessions with the team’s massage therapist.

After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Ari Bettini is in need of peace of mind. For now, she’s decided to focus on her work: rehabilitating the Bruisers’ MVP. O’Doul is easy on the eyes, but his reaction to her touch is ice cold. Ari is determined to help O’Doul heal, but as the tension between them turns red hot, they both learn that a little TLC does the body good…

I love a great hockey book and when it’s a series that’s even better because you see the growth of all the characters! Patrick is Mr. Team captain and he is used to being the enforcer! Ari is the massage/yoga instructor and she rolls out all of their kinks! Patrick is the quiet brooding type and Ari brings out a softer side in him! I was excited to see if their romance would score a goal or would Ari’s ex body check Patrick? This book had everything I love in a good sports book, entertaining, romance, sweet, and keeps you reading! The romance  slowly simmers to boiling point! Trust me you won’t be disappointed! Cannot wait for the next book in the series!
