A new male / male hockey romance from 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…

    This has Sarina Bowen’s characteristic combination of heart, heat, and humor. And hockey.

  • A hat trick perfect book

    I gotta say. The new guy. Out of this world phenomenal. I mean. Soooooo good. I had to rush to the author group on FB to brag about it. This was so well written. Plot so deep. But still had a light side in it. I was enthralled. PS: the heat. I can’t even. It is going on my best of ever and 2023 shelves for sure. Well done, Sarina. Well done. It’s Hockey romance MM done right. I simply loved Gavin. And aches for his losses. And I felt so much for Hudson. Wow. His roller coaster was so hard too. The support and the love for Jordyn was awesome as well. She’s a spitfire of a 7 year old. I. Loved. It.

    Wow! 4.5 stars This M/M forbidden storyline has it all. Hudson and Gavin’s chemistry is scorching hot! Their journey is not with out angst, swoon worthy moments and all the feels. You can’t help but fall in love with Jordyn too. Definitely worth the read.
  • M/M to perfection!!

    By KindleKat64
    Sarina Bowen is one of the few authors I read who in my opinion does M/M right. She makes you fall in love completely with both Ms while also enjoying every aspect of their story. Hudson & Gavin are two such characters. They both reeled me in from the get-go. Hudson with his charm and inability to come out because of his career and Gavin being a widower who is now a single dad to his daughter Jordyn trying to navigate his new reality. I love them and their story so much. The heat they generate is molten lava hot and they are both so sexy in their own ways. I love how they navigate their relationship while also making sure to be true to themselves. Fantastic writing, great characters and an awesome storyline make this a must read. I loved it!!
  • Loved Hudson and Gavin

    Once again Sarina Bowen knocks it out of the park or maybe arena with this new MM hockey book. Since I don’t usually read blurbs I was really interested to see how this story all got started and I was giddy with excitement about the almost one night stand. The chemistry between Hudson and Gavin is off charts from the moment they meet. Even with the Chemistry Gavin treats Hudson exactly like the other guys on the team and doesn’t make it awkward. And Hudson struggles with trying to accept Gavin knows his secret which makes things interesting at work. But despite all that I loved watching them go from kind of wary neighbors to completely committed to each other. Then add in Gavin being a single dad and them both interacting with Jordyn will just make you swoon.
