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

➳Attraction between friends that are oblivious about it, but have strong friendship feelings towards each other making it harder for them to release their lust towards each other...

Until you wake up naked with your boss of seven years, you haven’t lived.
THIS is the book I’ve been waiting for in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. Yeah, this is a hockey series and Nate’s not a hockey player, but semantics. Nate is actually the owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers. He’s a very rich and very successful man in all of his endeavors, and Rebecca is the girl that’s been with him from the start. She’s worked for him before he made all his money, and he’s been gone for her fo

I absolutely love a book where the guy goes after the girl. Not saying the girl didn’t want it, but when a guy pursues the girl, I like it a lot


Nate Kattenberger, owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers and a Billionaire Business owner. He’s handsome, he’s sappy, he’s hidden his lust for damn near 7 years for his assistant. I loved damn near everything about Nate. His drive to succeed, his passion for the one he wants, his protectiveness, okay I think you get it. He was nearing the perfect stage for me.

“Everything seems fine and ordinary. Or at least it did until I hit my head.”

Brooklyn Bruiser fans, we finally have Nate and Becca’s story! And it was SO worth the wait!

Becca has worked for billionaire Nate since the beginning, before he earned all the money and fame. Over seven years the two have had a great friendship and worked really well together. And while both are attracted to the other, neither one of them knows it or will admit it.

When Becca injures her head on the ice, Na

I can't go wrong with a Sarina Bowen book. I just love this woman's stories so much. And can we take a second to appreciate this FINE cover?

In Brooklynaire Sarina Bowen gives us wonderfully endearing main characters and a set of fabulous supporting cast. Rebecca's concussion, which she  sustained from her brilliant idea to step on the ice of the Brooklyn Bruisers practice rink takes longer to heal than anyone anticipated. Good thing that team owner and bossman N

We finally have Nate and Rebecca's book, y'all! To everyone who has read at least one of the Brooklyn Bruisers novels, you know there's something going on between the tech billionaire owner of the hockey team and his right-hand woman. Brooklynaire was three books in the making, but it was worth the wait. It was just as sweet and satisfying as I imagined it to be.

This is one of those books in a series that had me ready to scream and stalk the author to get. Nate and Becca have been secondary characters that are mentioned in previous books only enough to get me curious but never enough to give any of their answers. So instead I had to patiently sit and wait for their book to come out and hope my expectations can be met. Well I can certainly say that with this couple my exceptions were not met-they were blown right off the ri

I had high expectations for this book because it's Nate! And Becca! I've been waiting for this book since I've read the first Brooklyn Bruisers book and Sarina Bowen did not disappoint. I adored this book with all of my heart.

Brooklynaire is a fun, all out swoon-worthy romance with Sarina Bowen's trademark flair.

One of the best things about reading a series... is watching and thinking about secondary characters which demand their own books. A crafty, smart author will give life to these characters... making us curious and interested. They will give us just enough of a glimpse here and there in the series so that at a certain point... these characters cannot be denied...There is enough demand by readers to plead... Please give us this couple's story.

OMG!!! Sarina Bowen made me so giddy with this book! Gahh, I'm going to be thinking about Nate and Rebecca for a long time.

Office romance and hockey = YESSSSS!!!!

Brooklynaire is a highly addictive, can't put it down, office romance with a nerdy billionaire twist all wrapped up in a sexy and witty package. I ready Brooklynaire in a day. Believe me when I say you won't be able to be able to stop reading this book!

Plot points and reveals here, read at your own risk. I'm basically cataloging my issues with the book.
Final thoughts: While the final 40% were lovely, sexy, sweet, and a likely attempt at redemption, the beginning of the book handled the power dynamic in too threatening of a manner for me. There were a couple situations, in order to include in the book, that could have been changed ever so slightly to work just fine.

Brooklynaire is a standalone and is part of the Brooklyn Bruisers series, well sort of. The Brookyn Bruiser series is about the hockey players and Brooklynaire is about the owner, Nate.

I have to say, I really enjoyed Brooklynaire, I think the cover is adorable, the storyline was super cute and it was a treat to read from start to finish. I gobbled the pages up like a starved woman. The book just had great flow and perfect balance of tension. Oh and Nate, don’t even get me st

O Fluff Queen! My Fluff Queen!




I've been waiting for this story since Rookie Move where Nate and Becca leapt off the page. Through the first three books their story has evolved but always maddeningly in the background. Until now.

"Everything worthwhile is complicated."


If you've not read the first three, no worries! You're probably better off than the rest of us, because much of this I already knew thus I found myself getting impatient for them to just be together already!

Seems I can resist that cover in any format. Nate *might could* rival Griff for #1 crush in SBlandia.

Tough call.

Narrators did a great job. Both showed some range and didn't just mail it in.

I still have the same "issues" with Becca as I did when I initially read it but I've read and listened to it within 6 mos and I know I'll probably listen and/or read it again so take that however you will.

I’ve been waiting for this book for the last three years, and I’m happy to report, the wait was so worth it. Sarina Bowen gave Becca and Nate an amazing and satisfying story.

This friends to lovers romance was all kinds of wonderful.

Becca and Nate were the best example of the friends to lovers trope. They’ve known each other for seven years, and worked closely with each other for years. Trusted each others, and knew one another like no other. They enjoyed each others company, and had the most ad

Sarina Bowen is easily one of my favorite romance authors. I absolutely loved the Brooklyn Bruisers series and was devastated when I saw Berkley wasn't going to publish any more in that series. I have been dying to read Nate and Becca's story since book one, so I was so excited to finally have them in my hands!

For seven years Nate and Becca have worked together. Becca knows what Nate wants, sometimes before he even knows he wants it. She's the perfect personal assistant and does an amazing job

Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen was the fourth book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. The series is fast becoming one of my favorite series with Bowen as one of my favorite authors.

Nate Kattenberger was the brilliant billionaire owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers NHL hockey team. Rebecca Rowley was the beautiful, independent office manager for the Bruisers. She’s worked for Nate for seven years. They’ve been prominent in all of the previous books. We knew they had off the charts chemistry but we also kn

This is my favourite of the Brooklyn Bruisers but in fairness, I have been waiting for Nate and Rebecca from book one. In fact, Sarina Bowen has been quite clever building the crescendo to the release of their book.

It delivered completely on an interesting story, characters that were even better close up and chemistry that lit a raging fire. The gentle build between these two and their friendship of nearly a decade made for delicious listening.

Brooklynaire was for a long time a book I hope to have. It was the story all the Brooklyn Bruisers fans needed and wanted.

Nate & Becca were two characters very much present in the previous books of the series. We all knew something was there, something might happen or might have happened but we needed details. I needed details. So when Sarina announced the release of Brooklynaire I was beyond excited and happy!

Reading their story was pure delight! Finally being in both of their minds was exa

I had been hoping for this book since I first read the first book in this series, Rookie Move, so I grabbed it on Pre-Order weeks ago. I wanted to love this book, and in some ways I still did, but sadly it was also one of those books that kept frustrating me throughout. I had dreams about how much this book annoyed me last night.

So the backstory is that the heroine Becca, who was an office manager for Nate for 5 years, was transferred to the hockey team in a similar position. Now 2 years later s
