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

SUPERFAN was a wonderful surprise!

I was expecting it to be a regular sports romance – color me surprised when it turned out to be so much more. The merging of two of my favorite genres sports romance and rockstar romances really did it for me.

Give me a good sports romance with a mighty fine hockey player and I am in reading heaven. This was my introduction to the ”Brooklyn” series and after having read this one, I know I will be making time to get to the books I’ve missed. ”SUPERFAN” was entertaining and incredibly steamy. A second chance romance between a pop star and a professional hockey player is a surefire recipe for a top of the charts selling hit! I loved that Silas and De

Oh what a fun surprise!!!!!!!
Love when you mix some tropes, especially when you mix the favorites!!!! Yummmmm is all I can say!! Steaming Yummmm!

I fell for Silas & Delilah. I loved their journey and man oh man did I enjoy their ride!!!! When you find that you are surprised at how much you love a character, it makes the book that much better for you, I believe in the connection!! Silas and Delilah met before each of their careers took off, so coming together was fun to relight their relations

I had no clue Silas was going to turn out to be so adorable but holy swoon, Batman! I loved him and his sweetness. It's not something that comes to mind when you think of a sports romance, but he was completely different from the usual cocky athletes. He was a little shy, super loving, and really romantic when it came to Delilah.

Their story was intriguing and had a nice flow to it. It wasn't overly dramatic, but had some angst and suspense to it that I enjoyed. Ov

I think I need to break up with Sarina Bowen. We've had an amazing run, I've read (and loved) like 85% of her books, but the newer ones I just don't click with. This book specifically, it was a really great story. It really was hence 3 stars. What fell flat for me was the romance. I didn't feel the connection, it was very insta-lovey for me, and then everything was just kind of perfect. I need a little bit of angst in my romance.

I think it's just me not loving Bowen's new work, so pleas
Absolute perfection. The best book boyfriend of, maybe the best book boyfriend ever?
Review to come after I compose myself...

So I'm not all that composed yet. I loved this book so much that I haven't felt like reading anything else. Silas and Delilah's story touched me so much that it may have replaced Brooklynaire as my favorite Sarina Bowen story. Everything just clicked for me. I liked the originality of how the H/h first met, their years apart and what happened to them, the Twitter

This was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!! Thank you Sarina for the early ARC! Silas was so dreamy, and he and Delilah are my new favorite power couple!

I’ve always loved the Bruiser’s goalie, Silas, not only is he an absolute sweetheart but he's brought some giggles so I was so looking forward to his and Delilah’s story.

Unfortunately I found Superfan underwhelming. Maybe that’s because it came off the back of my Brooklynaire and Overnight Sensation binge with both hitting all the spots, and although Delilah and Silas were good together, I did roll

I had to think on this one a few days primarily because there's nothing wrong with it other than it not being super memorable.

While reading Superfan I was invested in Silas and Delilah's journey. I wanted them to find a way to navigate the obstacles both of their careers inherently pose. I was rooting for them but when it happened I found myself thinking, (a) that was easier than I envisioned it being and (b) how many Bruisers are going to end up with their sweethearts in the same buildin

One of the keys to excellent series writing is to create secondary characters readers want to know more about. It can tricky in developing this interest because if the author gives too much page time, then the feel of the book will feel divided, losing the focus of the main story. What is wonderful about Sarina Bowen's writing is her innate ability to balance this fine line. She could teach a Master's Class. With Superfan (Brooklyn, #3), she

Maybe my favourite of the three, so far? For a second I got confused what series I was reading, having just read a Chicago Rebels installment (not the same author), but then my brain caught up, lolz.

I've deleted two versions of some kind of review for this so I think I'll just throw in the towel now. It was good, sometimes, great; there was a villain, he was bad; the romance went from zero to turbo speed, which was kind of not amazing, but I guess that's what happens in sorta-second chance roma

Silas Kelly is a gorgeous 25 yr. old professional athlete from Northern California who is the goalie for the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team. He has a fabulous career, and wonderful friends, but hasn’t found that special someone, unless you count the one that got away. Delilah Spark is still the face that fills his dreams, and his friends enjoy kidding him about his healthy obsession with her. They met three years ago at a low point in both their lives. The ti

Dear Sarina,

I need this book.

****4.5 Stars****

I honestly thought by the title, that the Superfan was going to be the heroine. I guess after 'meeting' the Bruisers I just assumed that all the women were going gaga over them as much as I am. How utterly captivated I was to learn that the Superfan was Silas, the goalie, over Delilah Spark. Sure, I was having a doey moment considering I know that Silas has a wee bit of an infatuation with Ms Spark. But, in true narrow-minded...I've re

It was so fun to revisit Superfan via audio. Aaron Shedlock was so wonderful as Silas and was just the right amount of sweet and sexy. Virginia Rose really sparkled (Sorry! I couldn't help myself!) as Delilah. Their voices complemented each other very well and this was the perfect way to reread this book.

I like to imagine that Sarina Bowen has as much fun writing the Brooklyn series and I have reading it. Superfan is a mood-lifting delight and a great addition to my sports rom com library.

Popstar Delilah Spark may have a superfan in Brooklyn Bruisers goalie Silas, but I am Silas’s biggest fan. It would be difficult for any man to compete with his easy going, fun, patient, and attentive nature. His main goal is to love and support Delilah. He’s not threatened by her fame and he’s not afraid to be

Five Stars are not enough!

Sometimes it is really hard to put so many feelings and impressions into words. Sarina Bowen is one of the best writers I’ve ever read, and she gets even better with each book she writes. There’s something magical about her voice that never fails to enchant me. I admire her talent so much, and always look forward to reading her, even when I’ve read the book 15 times already.

I love everything about her books. She writes about strong, independent women and strong and resp

Despite its title, Superfan (Brooklyn, #3) was such a sweet and delightful read. I adore Silas he's the quintessence of what a book boyfriend for, and he's surely a 'superfan' to Delilah but not in a creepy or stalker-ish way. Across-the-board the book has pretty wholesome characters and a fast-paced storyline execution. I genuinely had a considerable time with these two. ...more

I'm not sure how to explain this, but Bowen's voice was different with this book. The story was so fluid and engaging, and the characters were brilliantly portrayed. Don't get me wrong, I loved her other books, but this one was crazy good!

Not only is this the ultimate athlete in love with Superstar romance, hello Carrie Underwood and Mike Fischer, this is also a second chance romance, which are my favorites!

I always put off reading a Sarina Bowen book for months after it’s release, and when I finally do, I wonder what the hell was I thinking. The same thing happened here, but I’m also glad to have read it now because I need a little happiness among all the intense fantasy books I’m planning to read this month.

Well. I’d like to start off by saying I did get an ARC sent to me for review and with the short timeframe to read and review, that’s probably not really a realistic time to expect changes between the ARC and the final version (if any). I’m thankful I was provided an ARC for review and I did love the last two books in this series.

But I had some real problems with this book.

I have been waiting and dying for Silas Kelly's book forever and was so excited when Sarina Bowen announced that his book was coming. This story was heartfelt and sexy and I seriously had a bucket full of swoons pouring out of me reading about him and Delilah. I loved that their chemistry was so fiery but their connection and banter felt honest and so real. I loved this story so much! 

When we first saw Silas' reaction to the mere mention of Delilah Spark in Overnight Sensation, we had no idea ho

I really loved both Silas and Delilah. I enjoyed reading their story. But this one is 4 stars, not 5 because they both had some tstl moments. But even with those moments, I still liked this one a lot. Happy reading!

I really love Sarinas books. FM MM all of it. This one was no different. I liked the twitter thing and the fact that silas was so Smitten.
These men are like warriors. Bendy, bearded warriors.

This was fun and sexy. Silas was the cutest thing ever!! He was a good guy with great abs and a beautiful beard. Delilah was prickly and a little jaded but she had her reasons and I just wanted to hug her. The team was there and I forgot how much I love them. I love this series so much because of them. Their crazy bets and childish antics. The new roles as fathers was also super sexy. A lot of the players have kids and that’s so cute to see as
