Also, I love Sabrina Bowen but that cover! Bleurgh.
Nate Kattenberger is geek, a nerd, a billionaire and the owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers. Seven years ago he had a small tech business, full of guys eating pizza and playing ping-pong, all brains and no commonsense. He hired Rebecca Rowley straight out of college as office manager to bring order to chaos and she has been his right-hand woman ever since, well until two years ago when he brought the glamorous ice-Queen Lauren in to take her place in Manhattan and put Becca in as assistant to Hugh Major, the General Manager of the Brooklyn Bruisers.
The plot of this book overlaps with that of the previous book, Pipe Dreams, which concerns Lauren and Beacon, the goalie for the Bruisers.
When Lauren falls on the ice and gets a concussion which won't heal, Nate takes things into his own hands and moves her into his sprawling mansion, complete with AI butler, 24/7 security and a housekeeper. Will the two most cautious, oblivious lovers in the history of romance ever realise that they are totally right for each other?
I understand why some of my friends liked this but didn't love it. It's the one we've been waiting for and it's really hard to deliver against all those expectations. But I think Sarina pulls it off. The angst is low-key and kind of off-centre (trying hard not to spoil for the slower readers), we get to see Nate in all his geekyness, including an obsession with palindromes. We travel with the Bruisers and sit in the owner's box at games, I felt hoarse in sympathy for all the screaming and shouting that Becca does for her team. Nate gave me the perfect ending. It's not all angst-angst-angst and there are no manufactured ridiculous misunderstandings to make you sigh in exasperation. It's just like one of Becca and Nate's hot tubs, hot and soothing and fun.
Wonderful end to the series, wonder what happens with you know who and the thing ...
BROOKLYNAIRE is the long awaited story of hockey team owner Nate Kattenberger and office manager, Rebecca Rowley. It’s a delightful friends to lovers romance that begins when Becca answers an ad for Nate’s software company.
They’ve work alongside each other for seven years, and in that time their relationship has progressed beyond that of boss and employee. They have a deep respect and admiration for one another, but it’s only when Becca injures herself do they realize how deep their affections lie.
Like most billionaires Nate is incredibly successful and driven, but my favourite quality of his was the unrelenting support of Becca. I enjoyed the journey of realization and the tentativeness when they finally gave in.
Sarina Bowen can do no wrong in my eyes. BROOKLYNAIRE is a wonderfully sweet story, and I had no complaints when it came to its glasses-fogging steam. Readers of the Bruiser’s series will appreciate how fresh and engaging Sarina made the story.
It’s worth mentioning that although Nate & Becca have made appearances in the Brooklyn Bruisers series, this can absolutely be read as a standalone.
Rebecca "Becca" Rowley is an assistant manager at Brooklyn Bruisers but has worked for Nate for 7 years. She started working for Nate when she had to leave college after her father died. She lives with her younger sister, sister's boyfriend and their baby. When Becca takes a tumble on the ice, she ends up with concussion so Nate organised for her to see the team doctor and then a specialist. All of this leaves her feeling down as she can't work, use any kind of screen and ultimately can't work. Nate arranges for her to stay at his huge house to allow her to recuperate in peace. It's during Becca's recuperation that they become closer and eventually become lovers. However there are a lot of factors which threaten their relationship.
This book, for me, has been highly anticipated since we first met these two in Pipe Dreams and it didn't disappoint. It's a wonderfully, beautiful and funny story. Nate is one of my all-time favourite heroes and I highly recommend this book.
In order to create a book out of Nate and Rebecca’s relationship the book jumps around timelines a bit, starting back in Hard hitter, going back further to when Rebecca joined Nate’s company, all of which has already been exposition in the three other books or could have been. The epilogue is a weird tack on, supposedly written in a magazine article style.
I was bored waiting for this book after it was teased as the next in the series at the end of Pipe Dreams, I was bored reading this book but I am incredibly glad that Sarina has got it out of her system so that the next book can go back to being a good interesting read. It’s an alright standalone but it’s too long and in the wrong order to form part of the series.
