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…

I loved this feisty heroine and her alpha hero with a heart of gold! The perfect blend of heat and heart. Melanie Harlow, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Cloverleigh Farms Series
Back off, readers. Tank is my new book boyfriend. I absolutely loved Sure Shot. Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn
Can’t say enough about this series. I’m so sorry to see it end! Each and every character became part of my family.
Sweet read!! Love Tank and Bess!!
Can’t stop re-reading. Wonderful romance and terrific characters
Sure Shot by Sarina Bowen is one of those books that I simultaneously read super fast and then slowly … devouring the words to get to “what’s next” while realizing that that the faster one reads, the faster the ending comes….and what an ending!
This book is the latest in the Brooklyn Bruisers series, but can be read as a standalone. If you haven’t read anything in the series, you can read this book, but you’ll want to read the whole series … immediately.
Ms. Bowen’s writing style is superb. Sure Shot is another example of how she masterfully weaves the storylines and books together in a way that they slightly overlap more so than books that occurs in sequential order. When I read them, I often pick up on a hint or tip from another book that sends me on a journey to find the passage in another book.
But the best part about her books, and Sure Shot as well, are the characters. They are well developed and realistic.
Tank is overcoming a life blow with the loss of his marriage as he trades into the Bruiser’s hockey organization. He is honest and knows he needs to make up a lot of ground as he joins a team where there is animosity towards him. He becomes singled minded in his pursuit of Bess, which leads to heart pounding scenes and dialogues. Bess is an agent who represents several Bruiser players. She’s got a 5 year plan that she’s trying to put in action. Familiar characters from previous books abound … all of them … which is one of the great parts of this book and the series.
When I finished this book, I was in a complete funk and couldn’t stop the re-read … it’s like moving away from a place you love with friends you love … you can’t believe it’s no longer there.
Sure Shot has romance-laced dialogue that will have you sighing out lout and sizzling scenes that will melt your e-Reader! … but it’s more that that. Serious issues such as infertility, family, and life goals are woven in.
This book gets 5 stars from me because it’s terrific and I immediately started the re-read.
I received an ARC; this is my honest review.
