ARC Review: Brooklynaire

Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen
Release Date: February 12, 2018
Genres: Romance
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?


If you’re a fan of Sarina’s books, you’ve probably been waiting for this for a long time. I am happy to report this was worth the wait!

Nate is probably one of my favorite male hero’s Sarina has ever written. He’s a nerdy billionaire that owns a hockey team. I loved his drive and passion. He was a bit awkward, but I adored him. Becca has been with Nate from almost the beginning. She’s watched him go from a guy with a start-up company to a billionaire with a hockey team. She’s loyal, independent, and hard-working. She’s a character you can’t help but root for.

Both Nate and Becca are aware of the power imbalance that’s between them. I’m glad Nate never takes advantage of the fact that he’s Becca’s boss. Becca is always upfront about how she feels, and Nate was always so respectful.

This story switches back and forth between the past and present. I’m usually not a fan of this. I feel like authors sometimes spend way too much time in the past. Thankfully, Sarina doesn’t have too many chapters in the past. We mostly just get a look at how Nate and Becca meet, and their friendship develop a bit.

I’m also usually wary of books where characters have had feelings for each other for a long time. They usually have nothing going on in their lives besides this other person. But Nate and Becca have been living their lives to the fullest for the 7 years they’ve been friends. Seeing other people, furthering their careers, etc.

Honestly, this book just worked for me. I really don’t have any complaints about it. This was a quick and fun read, and I recommend it to romance fans! While this is a standalone, I’d recommend reading it after her Brooklyn Bruisers series if you’re planning on reading those books as this will spoil them for you.
