I’ve been waiting for this book for the last three years, and I’m happy to report, the wait was so worth it. Sarina Bowen gave Becca and Nate an amazing and satisfying story.

This friends to lovers romance was all kinds of wonderful. 

Becca and Nate were the best example of the friends to lovers trope. They’ve known each other for seven years, and worked closely with each other for years. Trusted each others, and knew one another like no other. They enjoyed each others company, and had the most adorable nerdy tendencies. And then came the SEX – and OMG those two were HOT!!!

Nate, was as awesome as I remembered. He was this cool as a cucumber nerd. Highly intelligent, rich, and secretly in love with his office manager. On top of that, Nate was incredibly sweet, caring and sensitive. He listened, took care of Becca, and gave her space when needed. And he was unequivocally in love with Becca. As soon as the cat was out of the bag, he moved forward, and had only one goal in mind – making Becca his.

Becca, much more conscious about what the public and everyone else would think, made Nate sweat buckets and caused him more than one time blue balls. I loved Becca from the very beginning, but even more so after reading Brooklynaire. She was wonderfully unique, vibrant, and herself, a genuine person that was delightful and the perfect partner for Nate.

Whenever they were together their friendship shone like a beacon. Real, deep, and entirely reciprocated. Their sexual tension was palpable and sizzling hot. As soon as they decided to give in and enjoy each other and their desires, they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. But their time together never took away from the story, it actually enhanced it, and showed how potent their chemistry and attraction was.

I love how the author allowed them to have their own life, job, and didn’t have have them attached to each other 24/7, that’s just never realistic. And because of that, it made for a much more believable progression of their relationship.

Brooklynaire was as delightful as I hoped it would be. And I’m immensely happy with the outcome!! Bravo!!

A sexy new standalone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?

I grab a towel off a waiting stack of them and toss it onto the edge. “You can sit and put your feet in.”

She’s wearing a short little knit dress that’s been making me crazy all evening, so it would be easy enough for her to strip off those stockings, sit on the towel, and drop both feet in.

And that’s what she does. She eases one stocking down over a smooth knee and tugs it off.

I don’t want to stand there staring like a middle-school boy. Okay, I do want to. But I don’t want to make her uncomfortable. So I go over to the sound system instead, and I set my phone on the speaker and cue up a really old playlist. One she’ll recognize.

When I turn around again, she’s seated on the towel, both legs hanging down into the churning water. “Ah. Wow.” She looks up at me, her eyes sparkling. “Nice place you got here.”

“Isn’t it?” I toe off my shoes and kick them to the side.

The first song comes on, and it’s a Macklemore tune that we used to play far too often in our first office. Rebecca laughs immediately. “You didn’t! I haven’t heard this playlist in forever. But I’ll bet I still know every transition. Lady Gaga is next.”

“She sure is.”

Rebecca kicks her feet, making a splash. “I have a little confession to make.”

“What’s that?” I loosen my tie and slide the knot out.

“Well…” She grins up at me. “I used to have a crush on you. Back in the early days.”

My hands freeze on the tie silk. “Get out of town. You did not.”

“No, I really did.” Her cheeks are pink. “That first year especially. But you were taken, and you were my boss. Those two things made it pretty easy to tamp down, when you’re a practical girl like me.”

I walk over and drop down beside her, my back to the water, though, because I’m still wearing trousers and socks. “So how does that work, exactly?”

“What?” She gives me a sidelong glance, but then looks away again and won’t meet my eyes.

“How do you stop wanting someone? I’m a practical person, but I don’t see how that makes it any easier. Nothing seems to mute the raging attraction I have for you.”

Her chin turns quickly toward me, and I seize the opportunity to kiss her. And it only takes one kiss—one slide of my lips over hers, and I’m on fire again.

We’re facing opposite directions, so it’s awkward as hell. But I don’t even care. I take greedy sip after greedy sip of her mouth, until she pulls back to stare at me. Her color is high and her eyes are bright and happy. “This is like Twister.”

“It’s better,” I correct. Lady Gaga comes on, just as Becca said she would. “Are we getting into this pool or what?”

Becca kicks a foot in the water. “I’m tempted. But I don’t have a bathing suit.”

“Oh, snap.”

She smiles and shakes her head. “Are you really getting in?”

“We don’t have to.” I’m never going to pressure her.

Her fingers trail across the surface of the bubbling water. “But this is an adventure, right?”

“Right.” I stand up and remove my socks. She’s watching me. And I can’t read her expression. “What?”

“Just wondering what else you’re going to take off.” She smiles.

“Come here.” The order rolls off my tongue.

But Rebecca doesn’t blink. She gets up and turns toward me, curiosity in her eyes.

“You tell me. What am I taking off?”

She puts two hands tentatively on my chest, and I make myself be patient. Everything I ever wanted is on the other side of this moment. I just need us to break through this awkwardness—the “will we or won’t we” tension.

Her fingers find the top button of my shirt. “I’m not getting in the water unless you are.”

That’s a compromise I can live with. I find my lower shirt buttons and work upwards, until we meet in the middle. She pushes the two halves of my shirt apart and runs a hand down my bare chest.

My inner caveman stands up and cheers.
