Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen: Georgia is determined to show her boss that she’s more than capable of being in charge of PR for the Brooklyn Brusiers. She may not have the most experience, but she makes up for that with her intelligence, drive, and determination. She’s excited to have her dad join the team as the new head coach, but she also needs to set some boundaries to ensure she has the team’s respect.
Her enthusiasm quickly dies when she learns of her boss’ latest acquisition: her high school boyfriend. She hasn’t talked to Leo in the six years since she ended their relationship. And Leo looks better than ever since he’s put everything into making his dream of playing hockey in the NHL a reality.
Both Georgia and Leo quickly learn that the attraction that once simmered between them is still there after all this time. Georgia is determined not to get involved with any of the players, but Leo is so much more than that. It doesn’t help when he declares his feelings during a press conference either.
“I don’t have time to find a date. What if you went with me? Are you spoken for?”
“Uh…” What? “I can’t,” she snapped, her shock getting the best of her. “That’s, um, nice of you, but I could never date a player.” Jesus. He didn’t ask to date her. “I mean, I can’t appear to date a player,” she rambled. This was getting worse by the second.
As much as Georgia wants to avoid Leo and their past, she can’t when she travels with the team. He’s just there and they can’t deny their attraction. In spite of the difficulties, Leo is determined to get Georgia back and pick back up where they left off.
“Even a chick flick?” she teased.
Her knee received a squeeze. “I really miss you, Gigi. If you’re going to let me crash your Friday night, you can put on My Little Pony for all I care.”
“Let’s not get carried away.”
