A new standalone novel in the Brooklyn Bruisers world!
Sometimes lady luck shakes your hand, and sometimes she smacks your face. Sometimes she does both on the same day.
Three years ago I met the most amazing girl in the world. We were both down on our luck. Then I got that call—the one that tells you to get your buns on a plane to go meet your destiny.
But the girl was left behind. I didn’t have her phone number, and she didn’t know my real name.
While I became a professional hockey player, she became a superstar, with platinum records and legions of fans. And a slick, music producer boyfriend who treated her badly.
But fate wasn’t done with us yet. When Delilah turns up at a hockey game, I can’t resist making contact. The internet swoons when I ask her out on a date.
She might not remember me. But her jerkface ex does. He’ll do anything to keep us apart. 
Good thing athletes never give up. This time I’m playing for keeps.

Silas shows up in the first book in this series Rookie Move, he's a rookie that ends up completely messing up in net and he disappears back into the minors until I think Pipe Dreams where Mike Beacon mentors him a bit. Silas is like the best dude every, especially in the previous book Overnight Sensation, so I was super pumped to read his book. Like I swear he was a sweet baby angel, but we find out in this book that day-um...Silas spits some mad game.

This book gives us more background on why Silas loves Delilah Spark so much, and why he tolerates his teammates busting his balls about it so much. I liked seeing the past with them and how they connected however brief it was. We also get to know more about Silas and his background and it's a lot darker than I had imagined.

I do feel like they fall in love a bit too quickly, but I wanted Silas to find happiness so I will forgive it. I also was just so invested in Delilah getting out from under her ex's thumb. That stuff with the music industry stuff was so annoying to me! Ugh, her ex was the worst!

This book does have a bit of drama, and there is some crazy drama towards the end of it, that I felt was a teeny bit over the top. It's not really drama between the lovers, but rather the people around them.

I love this series from Sarina Bowen, but I'm unsure if there are going to be anymore in the Brooklyn Bruisers world. I know that one of the retired players has his own book under one of her other series, so I definitely want to check that one out.
