A sexy new standalone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.

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?

  • So good!

    Nate and Bec, we've waited so long for your story... and you didn't disappoint. I'll admit, this one felt a little different, writing style wise, in the beginning. I'm not sure it was a different Yes technique in which the past jumps were told in a different style; but it threw me off a bit. It doesn't continue through the whole book, so it was fine in the end. But seeing Nate and Rebecca go through all of their motions and the tidbits from all sides, it made me smile through every word. Their quirks and cuteness is off the charts. And the ending was a very well deserved, well-rounded surprise!

    I was so glad that this was not another billionaire and office assistant romance. It was so much more. I absolutely loved Nate and Rebecca! Nate has worked hard to get where he is. The man is a genius and it was fate that brought Rebecca into his life. She had to leave college and return home to work after the death of her father and Nate desperately needed an office manager to keep the everyone on task. For seven years they worked together and the attraction for Rebecca was always there, but it had grown so much that he needed to have less exposure to her or otherwise his attraction for her would be known. When the opportunity came up, he transferred Rebecca to run the office of the hockey team he owns across town. He never told her why and it always nagged at Rebecca why he transferred her. Rebecca always takes care of everyone else. She works hard, and she is such a sweetheart with a lot of sass. She kept those hockey players in line and they adored her. Rebecca fell in love with Nate from the start. He was nerdy, sweet, protective, loyal, distracted and taken. So, he was safe. Over the years she had kept her attraction for him to herself. She helped him through a terrible breakup with his finance. She never felt like she would be good enough for him. She didn’t finish college and she worried that he would get bored with her and feel that she wasn’t his equal. Even though they worked so well together, and she kept things on task. An unfortunate accident happens to Rebecca, and Nate takes the opportunity to reach out and help Rebecca and hopefully spend some one on one time together to explore their relationship. Maybe take it from friends to lovers. Nate wanted and was ready for more. This story tugged at my heart! The author did such a good job of developing the characters and emotions that it brought out in me. I felt what they were feeling. I also loved the voice-controlled speaker, Bingly. He was hilarious, especially when he had the British accent like Mr. Darcy! This was one of those books that you can’t put down because you are so into it and emotionally involved. If you want a great friends to lovers romance, give this wonderful book a try!
  • The Best of the Series

    By cullencutie2
    The Best!!! That is all that I need to say about this! Ok, So I'll elaborate a bit. I've thoroughly enjoyed each book thus far in the Brooklyn Bruisers series by Sarina Bowen. And throughout the first 3 books, we've seen the building of the relationship between Nate and Rebecca. Read and felt the sexual tension between these two build. Finally, we get their story. This one focuses exclusively on Nate, owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers and his personal assistant, Rebecca. This particular story doesn't focus so much on the hockey aspect of the Brooklyn Bruisers series - it is a minor role in the book. This one is more of a traditional romance between While this particular story can be read as a standalone, I personally feel that it's better read as part of the series. There are appearances from characters that readers have been previously been introduced to throughout the series and it is always fun to reconnect with them.
  • Loved Nate and Rebecca’s story

    By Wookiee 45
    4.5 stars for - Brooklynaire - book four in the Brooklyn Bruisers series by Sarina Bowen. This book can be read as a complete stand-alone to the series as it features the team owner and the woman he loves. These two have been circling each other for quite a while now and leaving us wanting more. This is their entire story told in both the past and present in alternating POVs. Rebecca Rowley was in college when her father passed away. She chose to leave school and get a job to help provide for her family. When she got a tip from a friend about a new company looking for a office manager all she could do was apply and that led her to Kattenberger Technologies. Now seven years later the company has taken off more so than anyone has ever dreamed it could and the cute, but sexy tech geek she interviewed with is one of her closest friends. Rebecca worked with Nate side by side and helped him grow his company into the industry giant that it is today, so no one was more shocked when he transferred her to Brooklyn to run his newly acquired hockey team than she was. Nate Kattenberger has calculations for everything and with his team - The Brooklyn Bruisers - playing as well as they are this year, the Stanley Cup has a real chance to be brought home to Brooklyn , despite what all the naysayers that wanted him to fail have said. Nate can predict the outcome for most things in his life with simple calculations and prefers it that way. The only thing that consistently throws him off kilter is his beautiful assistant, but he is so tired of fighting his feelings for her and decides to finally make her his. This was a sexy, sweet and even a bit angsty friends to lover romance that's set in a hockey world so how can you possibly go wrong! With quick check-in's from previous couples too this is one series I just love to read. Can't wait for the next season of Bruiser's hockey.
  • 💜 Nate & Becca Were Worth the Wait! 💜

    By Bookbruin
    This is a book I have wanted from the moment I met the characters in Rookie Move. It's an equal parts sweet friends to lovers and angsty taboo/forbidden boss and employee romance. I devoured this book and could not get enough. Nate and Becca's story was everything I hoped for and more than I could have dreamed. Though characters from the author's Brooklyn Bruisers series appear, and that is where we initially meet our hero and heroine, Brooklynaire can be read as a standalone. I loved the glimpses into the past and seeing the start of the friendship between Nate and Becca. Their histories and meet cute gave their relationship more depth and the stable foundation for everything to come. I already loved both characters, but finally getting into their minds and seeing things from their points of view was amazing. Nate and Becca aren't perfect, but that made them and their story more realistic and relatable. Sure, he's a billionaire and a genius, but at the end of the day, he's still just a man in love. The build up between them was delicious and their chemistry was off the charts. When the stars FINALLY aligned for them, my kindle nearly burst into flames. Seriously, if there had been someone to high five, I would have. The road to happily ever after isn't a smooth one for Nate and Becca though, and there is some drama and a road block or two thrown in for good measure. In the end, however, it is all worth it and the wait to get to this moment will feel insignificant. Brooklynaire has all the laughs, swoons, and heart that fans of Sarina Bowen know and love. The main events of the story run concurrently with the book Pipe Dreams, with snippets in the past and one of the most smile inducing epilogues ever. My heart is full and I am so overjoyed that Nate and Becca finally got their story. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*
