REVIEW ➼ Sure Shot by Sarina Bowen


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…

He’s the man who’d made my twenty-first so special. It hadn’t been for just the one night, either. Our fling had a shelf life of three or four months.


Hockey romance and Sarina Bowen!? I’m all for this and Sure Shot did not disappoint.

Bess is a hockey agent and at thirty she owns her own business and is back in New York City. A city she was in 10 years, where she had a brief relationship. Now, that man is back and the newest player on the Brooklyn Bruiser’s.

I love Bess. I love that she is a strong woman in a male driven industry and she doesn’t let that bother her. She can hold her own with all those hockey players. She tried to keep everything professional, especially when it came to Tank, however, with the amount of chemistry those two have it can only be denied for so long.

This book was so much more emotional than I expected. My heart broke for Tank. The pain and struggles he felt. It did get a little heavy at times and I was in tears, but it also was real. It is something that people struggle with and the emotions they can feel.

I am completely addicted with anything that Sarina writes and Sure Shot is no exception to that. If you’re looking for a hockey romance with some depth this is a MUST READ!
