Summary

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....

4.5 stars good story

I enjoyed this story, liked the characters and how they evolved and developed, and great narration too. The only reason for not being 5 stars is I save that for books that utterly sweep me away, whereas this one was a good solid book instead.

Baby Bayer

Absolutely LOVE baby Bayer!!! Anton Bayer has finally after screwing up one too many times and being scared he will loose his spot of the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team, to clean up his act. No more partying, alcohol, girls (aka puck bunnies), and whatever else he shouldn't be doing. He's got his last chance to continue playing hockey. Little did he know this blond bombshell would be his undoing in the girl department. From the first hairpin, he's done for. Sylvie, having spent the better part of the year mourning her mom's death, never expected to be playing professional women's hockey in the US or for the 'sister team' of the man she had always dreamt of marrying. Please note this is not a love triangle. Bryce and Sylvie are not romantically connected, it's just they both thought they would get married since they grew up together. Anton and Sylvie find a fast friendship as workout/running buddies. They both feel their is something between them but it takes awhile to give in. Once they do, they become more of a friends with benefits despite the hair pins popping up everywhere (signs from Sylvie's mom). It doesn't take long though for our baby Bayer to realize he is in love with Sylvie and once Sylvie lets go of the past she knows it too. Now there is no stopping the hockey duo. Their love is strong enough to melt the ice!!!!! Sabrina did a great job too depicting the disparity between gender equality in sports, I commend her for making this part of the story! Baby Bayer and Sylvie will melt your heart. Highly recommend this book. The narrators for the audio are fairly new to me, despite being an avid audio book listener. They did a phenomenal job.

Cute

After a slow start, this book hooked me and I couldn't put it down! I really enjoyed it! Especially the last chapter- it's SO CUTE! I've been excited about this book since reading Bess's book, Sure Shot, and learning about her goals to improve supports for women hockey players!! I've been reading Bowen's hockey books in a strange order. I started with Becca's book (SO GREAT!), then Bess's brother's book, Bountiful (MY FAVORITE), Bess's book, Heidi's book, and now Sylvie's!!! Honestly, I love that you can read them in whatever order you want and they're still amazing!!

You meet a ton of exceptional secondary characters in this book, so I know there is more to come!! 🏒 I loved seeing Bess, Becca, and even Heidi's efforts finally come to fruition, and can't wait to see what else Sarina Bowen has in store for us!

the narrators are new to me, but it didn't take long to adjust to the new voices!! I actually really liked both of them! great story!

Bombshells

Women’s hockey team I love it!
I didn’t know what I was in for when I started this book and boy was I pleasantly surprised.
I really was hoping this wasn’t going to be a love triangle or second best kind of thing.
I like that it might have seemed one way but it the characters really did show who they wanted pretty much from the beginning.
Baby Bayer though he hates the name it so suits him, he is a love of the game and the lifestyle but if he really wants to show the head guys what he is made of he has to cut out some of the booze and women…. And in walks Sylvie.

Sylvie is still reeling from the loss of her mother, but her goalie career is starting to take off. She isn’t looking for lover per say her sights are set on her friend who they shared a connection with, but it has felt very one sided. She is hoping to change that. But she meets Anton aka Baby Bayer and sparks fly.

I also really enjoyed the realistic look at the differences in the male and female sports professions.
Loved the narrators too, they were perfect for these characters I love when that happens makes the listening experience that much more.

Great story and cast

The locker room scene with all the “foreign“ female products is hysterical!
Patrick Zeller is a new name for me and whew!, he has full command of the hot scenes. Both he and Desiree give an great performance and I’m only sad that the book has ended. Will there be sequels now for the Brooklyn Bombshells? I hope so!

Hot on the ice 🔥♥️

This is story of two players who love hockey.
The Brooklyn brothers has just started a new team called the bombshells which is their sister team. It’s going to be an amazing season.
Anton is the youngest in his family and has had a wild year almost lost his dream to play NFL hockey he had to clean up his act .
Sylvie is the back up goalie for the bombshells and she is hoist happy to be on the ice. She also thinks this is the year she will convince her crush that they should be together.
But fate steps in and Anton falls in love at first sight .
The two spend a lot of time getting to know each other and falling in love .
The two are sweet and Anton is a great friend.
I loved how the story didn’t shy away from the fact that the two League teams have very different pay scales.
There is humor ,sad and happy moments .
I love it I can’t wait to read/listen to more form the series.

Patrick Zeller, Desireé Ketchum did an amazing job narrating this story.

Oh, Anton!

Anton Bayer won me over the moment he described his first Sylvie sighting.
He continued to win me over with every page of the book.
And Sylvie? Yep. I love her too. She's determined and powerful and amazing.

These two together are fire. I couldn't get enough of their flirty banter, their growing friendship, their need to be around each other.

Bombshells is everything sweet and fun and sexy you want in your feel good romance.

Hockey, chemistry, hot sexy times.

This audiobook had me smiling!

This audiobook made me so dang happy while listening! I had a big smile on my face any time I turned it on. Anton and Sylvie’s friends to lovers romance was full of so much chemistry and laughter, plus I loved that both of them were hockey players, it added a special bond in the interactions. The narrators really were fantastic as well, Patrick Zeller is new to me and I will definitely be looking for more of his books. Desireé nailed Sylvie and the parts in French, audios really make me feel so connected to the stories because my pronunciation is never correct.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Sylvie is getting the opportunity of a lifetime to be a goalie for the new Brooklyn Bombshells women’s hockey team. The women’s hockey team aspect was so refreshing, I don’t really read many sports romances with the woman being the athlete and Sylvie was pretty dang awesome. And then there is Anton - I LOVED him! Anton is getting his act together this year for hockey and that means no distractions, especially women. But one look at Sylvie and all his plans are thrown out the window. I liked the friendship that they built first, they both needed someone in their corner and they truly were a perfect fit. There was a little forbidden aspect with Sylvie’s long time crush for one of Anton’s teammates but being with Anton really showed her that she could be loved and cherished without having to chase a man!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Definitely a laugh inducing listen, a slow building romance with the perfect amount of feels and heart, the perfect romantic story to lighten the mood!

One of my favourite books of the year!

I read Bombshells on release day and I absolutely loved it! I couldn't wait to listen to it on audio as well and it was just as good ! This book is funny, sexy and emotional and as always Sarina Bowen writes characters that I just love reading about or in this case listening to them. Great performance by both narrators.

Enjoyed.

Sarina is a favortie author so was happy to spend my day listening to this incredible story. I like how she brings the story alive from the first page until the end. Desiree is one of my top narrator's so much fun to listen to anything she narrates. Patrick was new but really loved his narration. I love that there is something special about Sarina Bowen stories. The journey of the friendship between Anton and Sylvie.
