Genre: Sports Romance
He needs an image makeover, she needs a mojo upgrade. A new lessons-in-seduction hockey romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Sarina Bowen.
After I’m arrested for throwing a raucous party, my hockey team says I have an image problem. And I need to fix it, stat.
Charity work? Check. Haircut? Sure. But I draw the line at hiring my neighbor to style me. In the first place “style” shouldn’t be a verb. And I’m tired of people who’d judge me on appearances.
Vera and I don’t see eye to eye on anything. She wants me to try on clothes, while I just want to remove hers. She’s distractingly pretty, with soulful eyes and a sinful mouth that likes to argue with me.
But when management threatens my summer vacation, I grudgingly agree to Vera’s unusual proposal: she’ll give me an image makeover. But in return, she wants lessons in the art of seduction.
It sounds a little nutty, but I know a good opening when I hear it. Besides, it’s not like I’ll ever fall for her…
Who doesn’t love a good hockey romance? This girl here loves them; especially Sarina Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series.
Love Lessons is the newest release in her hockey series featuring Ian and Vera. There are also plenty of appearances from other prominent series characters. That is one of the things I love most about reading a series, getting to keep tabs on favorite characters.
This story features a somewhat enemies to lovers/teacher and student vibe. Ian are neighbors plus their have similar friends so they cross paths frequently. Vera and Ian are attracted to one another, but Vera is hesitant to admit it.
The two find themselves off on an Italian vacation with their friends, the only 2 singletons amongst a group of happily paired couples. While in Italy, the relationship between Vera and Ian evolves.
I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook of Love Lessons, narrated by Joe Arden and Rose Dioro and I throughly enjoyed it. I am quite familiar with Joe Arden and his narration work. Rose Diogo is a relatively new narrator to me. I think I’ve only listened to 1 or 2 other titles narrated by her. I have to say that both did superb with this title.
All in all, you can’t go wrong with Love Lessons. It is a fun, sassy and entertaining read.
