Everyone knows the girl is off limits. But it's so good to be bad.

There's this girl...
Heidi and I have been trading hungry looks all year, and everything she does makes me smile. But I don't do girlfriends, and I certainly can't get involved with the league commissioner's daughter. I need shots on goal, not a hookup and a widely misunderstood paparazzi photo.

I love the Brooklyn Bruisers books, and I was so excited to read about Jason Castro! I loved his book. Another hit in this awesome hockey romance series.

Jason is the guy who doesn’t do relationships. Yes. He’s that guy. But there is this girl named Heidi who has been interning for the Bruisers and they’ve been circling each other. The thing is, Heidi is off limits for Jason. Her dad is important (the NHL commissioner) and Jason is off limits for Heidi (hockey player). It doesn’t mat

Oh wow!! It's not often that I fall in love with a heroine - but Heidi was my kind of gal.

Besides having one of the most amazing contemporary romance heroines, the first half of this book was INCREDIBLE!!!!! I laughed so hard at times - I truly had the best time reading this novel. I was actually sending screen shots of the Tesla scene to my friend, telling her she had to read it since she has driven a Tesla before and could totally relate.

Honestly, it's usually the guy that I fall for, but Heid

Overnight Sensation hit my Kindle and I was really excited to get started. I planned my reading attack plan. Step 1 – finish what I’m currently reading. Step 2 – go to work, try not to think about it as it sits there waiting patiently to start tonight. Step 3 - start my Friday Night Party Night with a glass of wine in one hand and my Kindle in the other with Overnight Sensation locked and loaded. Well, like all good plans set by a compulsive plan

READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG






In OVERNIGHT SENSATION Sarina Bowen gives us her quirkiest, funniest, feistiest heroine yet. We met Heidi Jo in Brooklynaire as the team's intern. I actually thought she was a little airhead in Nate and Becca's book, but boy was I wrong.

Heidi's still interning but after leaving college to her father's dismay, daddy dearest finds all kinds of unpleasant jobs for Heidi. In return she moves out of her daddy's apartment and into Jason Castro's bachelor pad, even more to Da

Overnight Sensation continues my obsession with the Brooklyn Bruisers! In this story, we get the "overnight sensation" Jason Castro as our hero. And his lady love? None other than the commissioner's daughter, Heidi Pepper! She is also a Bruisers' intern, hoping to take over Becca's job now that Becca is marrying the owner.

Jason is having an off start to his season. He isn't living up to his previous season and struggling in his new position as right wing. One area Jason doesn't struggle? With t

I loved this book! I have only been reading Sarina Bowen's work for about a year now but she has quickly become an author that I trust to deliver great romances and she totally delivered with this book. This book is the fifth book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series but it was the first book from the series that I have read and it worked well on its own. Of course, now I am ready to go back and get the other books read since I liked this

Oh, this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Heidi and Jason shined in this hockey-infused story about life-altering moments and forging new paths…

Heidi was a rich girl but she was so much more than that. Funny and sweet, bold and brash, she was so many things in one compassionate and practical package. She wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself – or others – and she did it all with humour and class…

Jason was a handsome, talented hockey player who didn’t have commitment in his vocabulary. Heidi turned him –

3.5? 3.75????

I'm round up because of Heidi Jo. That girl are funneee. Heidi Jo had me cackling so much during the bear vs. fish fight that my sides hurt. She's spunky, fiery and driven.

Her father is the league commissioner and he's pissed that she dropped out of Bryn Mawr so he decides to put her in the penalty box, so to speak, by making her do menial jobs for the Brooklyn Bruisers. But he underestimates his daughter.



She is a trooper. Not only does she do all these crappy jobs but she's good

I have to admit that I only read 2 Brooklyn Bruisers books before this one. One was the one right before this one: Brooklynaire - which I loved! And then I obviousely read the amazing True North Series - of which Bountiful had a Bruisers player in it too! ☺

So now here is Heidi and Jason's book.

I really love Heidi! With her adorable accent! I tried reading her scenes in an accent - very talent-free I have to admit! ☺

And Castro is just as adorable! Poor guy. So attracted to this off-limits girl!

Overnight Sensation is the fifth book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. The first thought I had was how great it was to be back with the whole team! I enjoyed reading series a lot because we get to see previous characters, previous couples. With the Brooklyn Bruisers, it’s like you get together with friends you haven’t seen for a long time. And the cherry on the cake is having Castro’s story.

“You and I are going to be a thing.”
“A thing? What’s that?”

★★ 4.5 stars! ★★

I love this series (and Sarina's writing)! Castro is a 'still waters run deep' kind of guy, which I was not entirely expecting, plus Heidi and her ambition are enviable—the girl's got moxie I'll give her that. I really enjoyed this one!

“𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗵."

This series gives me life! The 𝙱𝚛𝚘𝚘𝚔𝚕𝚢𝚗 𝙱𝚛𝚞𝚒𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚜 series has got to be one of the best sports romance series out there! Sarina Bowen gives us Heidi and Jason’s love story in her latest standalone installment of the beloved series. 𝐎𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 was absolutely scrumptious! It was sexy, emotional, and smart with a forbidden edge that gave me all the good angsty feels! I couldn’t put it down!

Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
Overnight Sensation scores big and delivers a healthy dose of sugar, a hint of spice, and a whole lot of nice.

Heidi Jo Pepper (aka “Hot Pepper”) steals the show in this book. The woman is a firecracker—remarkably resourceful, with a sharp mind, quick wit, huge heart, and infectious charm. I enjoyed her relentless pursuit of Jason Castro, the hot hockey playboy who is determined to remain single.

Jason is dealing with a sudden self-confidence problem, and Heidi has a lot to prove to herself and

★4 STARS★

With a name like Heidi Jo you can almost picture her before you meet her. Bubbly rich girl, who calls her daddy “Daddy” and wants for nothing. On first impressions she fits the stereotype, and admittedly I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. I wouldn’t be only one guilty of making those assumptions of her as it seems members of the Brooklyn Bruisers also came to the same conclusion of her, but it’s nothing being in her company for few minutes didn’t fix.

It’s glaringly obvious how much

Overnight Sensation was the fifth book in the (NHL) Brooklyn Bruisers series by Serena Bowen.

We met Jason Castro in the previous books as a playful, flirty playboy but also an up and coming forward for the Bruisers. He was doing well but still learning the NHL. This year he started in a rut, was moved from Left Wing to Right Wing and was finding his way in his new position. We also learned his hockey superstitions and his backstory on why he doesn’t do relationships. I enjoyed getting to know hi

Five Big Golden Stars for Overnight Sensation

I love reading romance novels that make me think beyond the obvious love story they’re telling. Sarina Bowen is my favorite author because she manages to do this in every book she writes, and also because her writing style is fuid and natural, and also witty and beautiful.

Overnight Sensation is more of a comedy than the previous books in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. A little lighter in the angst department, perhaps, but it still has its conflict to r

This series keeps getting better and better! Another winner from SB!

Bubbly, rich, beautiful Southern belle Heidi, just turned 21 and the Brooklyn Bruisers newest intern, was just all kinds of adorable for me. Loved this girl! Being a recent college dropout (where she realizes she just doesn't fit) has made her parents mad--what kind of life can she have if she doesn't finish school? Heidi doesn't see it that way. She wants to be treated like an independent adult who makes her own decisions. And

Full disclosure: I stan for the Buffalo Sabres (why yes, we’ve never won a Cup and let’s not discuss my emotional pain and distress while I wait for Eichel to live up to his promise and bring it home). And even though Buffalo gets a backhanded tweak in this tale, I still loved it, that’s how much I love a good hockey romance.
