A new male/male hockey romance from 24-time USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen!
My name is Hudson Newgate, but my teammates call me New Guy.
That was my nickname in Chicago, too. And Vancouver. That’s what happens when you keep getting traded. Brooklyn is my last chance, especially after my poor performance last season.
But I can make this work. The new guy knows to keep his head down and shoot the puck. The new guy puts the game first.
What he doesn’t do is hook up with the other new guy—a hot athletic trainer who lives in my building. Gavin needs this job with my team. He’s a single dad with responsibilities.
We can’t be a couple. My arrogant agent–who’s also my father–will lose his mind if I’m dating a dude. And my team needs me to score goals, not whip up a media circus.
Too bad Gavin and I are terrible at resisting each other…

The New Guy is so full of pining that I was about to die! I loved it so much! Hudson and Gavin have a million reasons not to be together, but their chemistry and connection is off the charts.

This story is the quintessential slow burn. Yearning so intense it melts the pages. These two have baggage and tons stacked against them, but the story builds on their chemistry. Hudson is the new player on the hockey team and Gavin is the training, so right there you get a bit of forbidden. Also, Hudson hasn’t told the team he is gay. But I just wanted these two to be together!

If you want an angsty story, I cannot recommend this enough. Seriously, I hate angst, but The New Guy was just too good!



authors like Elle Kennedy, Rebecca Jenshak, Sawyer Bennett…then you will probably like The New Guy!
