A new stand-alone hockey romance from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.
On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle her personal life with the same zeal that she brings to her successful agency.
A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner with a bad reputation. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.
She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.
Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…

Sure Shot by Sarina Bowen
Sure Shot is the second chance romance Bess Berringer and Mark ‘Tank’ Tankiewicz didn’t know they needed.
Having just spent the last week off the grid and working on her five-year plan, Bess is stunned to see Mark at a Bruisers get-together especially given that he’s arrived from a rival team and his wife is nowhere to be seen. Bess is no longer the newbie sports agent she was nine years ago and she’s made some huge decisions with both her professional and personal lives.
Mark has just arrived in Brooklyn where he simply does not want to be. His wife has asked for a divorce, his teammates don’t trust him, and he’s living in a hotel. The one thing going for him is that he’s back in contact with Bess Berringer and he’s not willing to let her push him aside.
These two have a lot of issues to work through and a lot of heartache to deal with. I did feel that things sort of started up a bit too quickly at the beginning of their reconnection but having said that, I quite enjoyed the serious turns their relationship took. Overall, this was a welcome addition to the Bruiser family and I loved seeing more from past characters.
*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

Great addition to the series
This was a fabulous read. Sarina Bowen had me from the first to the last page hook, line and sinker. This is Bess Beringer and the latest recruit to the Brooklyn Bruisers, Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz story and is a second chance at love story that ticked the boxes for me.
Tank and Bess, are two halves of a whole; having had a fling years ago, Bess left Tank and he moved on. Now they find themselves face to face again. Despite having her life mapped out, Bess is still attracted to Tank, even though they both have baggage.
The friendship and banter between them was realistic; the chemistry intense and absolutely sizzles, it’s just a shame that they continually miss communicate, that got a tad frustrating at times.
There pain of both Bess and Tank’s pasts really got to me, bringing me to tears. On a brighter note it was great to catch up on previous couples and see what is happening with them.
Sure Shot was a well written, fast paced story with characters you cannot help but like and quickly become invested in.
Fantastic addition to the series
I was excited when I heard we were going to be back with The Brooklyn Bruisers and Sure Shot was everything I expected and more, it was a fantastic read with wonderful characters and a storyline that drew me in and captivated from the first page to the last line.
This is Bess Beringer and Mark Tank Tankiewicz second change at love, having had a fling a few years ago it was Bess who walked away from Mark but now they find themselves coming face to face again will the attraction still be there, will the timing be right this time around or will the baggage they both have collected along the way be too much to put behind them.....
I fell hook line and sinker for this couple, I loved the chemistry they shared and the banter that flowed so naturally but it was the heartfelt emotions that touched me on so many levels that turned this from a great read to a fantastic read. I loved catching up with characters from previous books and true be told I love every about Sure Shot so please one click this gem of a read.
