Five nights. Two adversaries. One bed in their hotel room…
I’m at the height of my athletic career. Yet my arrogant brother is always trying to recruit me into the family business: a global security company so secretive that I don’t even know its name.
Pass, thanks. I don’t need a summer job.
But the jerk ambushes me with a damsel in distress. That damsel is Alex, the competitive, sassy girl I knew when we were kids. Now she’s a drop-dead gorgeous woman in deep trouble.
So guess who’s on a flight to Hawaii?
It’s going to be a long week in paradise. My job is keeping Alex safe, while her job is torturing me with her tiny bikinis. Or maybe we’re torturing each other. It’s all snark and flirting until the threat against Alex gets serious. And this jock must become her major league protector.
Moonlighter is a stand-alone novel. No cliffhangers, no prior experience necessary. Expect: a growly hero, a lady boss with no time for his attitude, and a war of wills and hormones. Bonus: hunk wearing a baby in a sling.

Moonlighter by Sarina Bowen
Moonlighter is the first book in Bowen's new series, The Company and it features Eric Bayer, a character from one of my favorite series, The Brooklyn Bruisers. Eric is feeling the tolls hockey is taking on his body and while he fully plans to rest on his break, his brother has other ideas which include sending him to Hawaii to play bodyguard/boyfriend to Eric’s childhood friend, Alex Engeles. Given that Alex didn’t recognize Eric when they bumped into each other not so long ago, he’s not particularly eager to help but the apprehension doesn’t last all that long.
I’ve had this book on my kindle for well over a week now. I was excited to read it but at the same time, I didn’t actually want to read it because then it would be over. Then when I started I worried that I’d built it up too much and that I’d be left disappointed. Silly me! I started this book and could barely stand to put it down! I’m lucky enough that I managed to read this over the weekend and only stopped for sleep. This book had everything and ticks all the boxes: the flirtation and banter that I’ve come to expect from Bowen, the sports references I love, the kickass heroine who I’ve decided is my new best friend, the somewhat grumpy hockey player I want to cuddle like he’s my own personal teddy bear, and of course, the suspense I NEVER KNEW I NEEDED!!!! This book kept me on my toes with twists and laughing at some of the comments tossed around. Bingley was a highlight for me and I’m going to request one just like him for my next birthday. Speaking of requests, I would love love love Bowen to write Max and Duffs stories sooner rather than later. I neeeeeeed more of The Company please!!!
*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

Hockey and suspense a great combo
Where do I start? From chapter one I was all in with Eric and Alex’s story. Hockey and suspense, what a great combination. Eric and Alex, are two halves of a whole; they are simply meant to be.
Eric is a professional hockey player, off for the summer, and now it seems thanks to his brother, he has added security specialist to his list of accomplishments despite his protests. However all that changes when he finds out the woman he is being asked to protect is childhood friend Alex.
Alex is feisty, sassy and I really loved her. I fell hard and fast for Eric, he is just so swoon worthy that you cannot help but fall for him. The chemistry between Eric and Alex is sizzling and intense.
Not only was it romantic but there was also drama and suspense that had me intrigued. This was a well written, steamy, fast paced story with characters you cannot help but like and relate too. I cannot wait to see who is next in this series.
