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…

Ok, real talk time! Love Lessons and the rest of the Brooklyn Bruisers series is just my all time favorite. There isn’t a book in the series I didn’t adore. Love Lessons gives us an opposites attract with a bit of a quid pro quo twist.

Ian needs to clean up his bad boy image. His hard partying ways have his team concerned. Vera needs to learn seduction. Sounds like a great way to start off, right? Vera and Ian are so different and that makes work perfectly. There is delicious banter because both of these two are whip smart and sassy. Also, they are on a trip to Italy with friends/teammates so the setting is just gorgeous!!! Because you are adding in the trip with Ian’s teammates and Vera’s friends, you get a lot of “bro” moments that I have come to love in the series. You also get to see some solid female friendships and support system.

While Ian and Vera might not seem like a good match on paper, the love lessons prove there is not a chemistry problem at all! Sexy, yet sweet, serious and funny, this book stole my heart.

  1. I actually just started this one today on audio. I can’t wait until they get to Italy and things really get going. I just love this group of characters and the extended family/friends/teammates have grown over the series.
