Release Blitz & Review: Love Lessons by Sarina Bowen


He needs an image makeover, she needs a mojo upgrade. A new lessons-in-seduction hockey romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Sarina Bowen.

After I’m arrested for throwing a raucous party, my hockey team says I have an image problem. And I need to fix it, stat.

Charity work? Check. Haircut? Sure. But I draw the line at hiring my neighbor to style me. In the first place “style” shouldn’t be a verb. And I’m tired of people who’d judge me on appearances.

Vera and I don’t see eye to eye on anything. She wants me to try on clothes, while I just want to remove hers. She's distractingly pretty, with soulful eyes and a sinful mouth that likes to argue with me.

But when management threatens my summer vacation, I grudgingly agree to Vera’s unusual proposal: she’ll give me an image makeover. But in return, she wants lessons in the art of seduction.

It sounds a little nutty, but I know a good opening when I hear it. Besides, it’s not like I’ll ever fall for her…



It’s no surprise to me that Sarina Bowen has yet again wrote a great love story! Love Lessons is the latest instalment in Bowen’s Brooklyn series that follows the players of the Brooklyn Bruisers mens hockey team. 

Love Lessons follows Ian Crickey and Vera. Ian is having some struggles with his public image which means he’s having some problems with the teams management but fortunately he is planning on going on vacation to Italy with some of his teammates which means he can relax before going back to the spotlight. 

Vera lives next door to Ian and is friends with some of the players and their partners. She’s also working on becoming a stylist and loves everything to do with fashion. She’s a little guarded after her ex-boyfriend broke her heart and she needs help to gain a little confidence in the bedroom. 

Unknown to Ian, Vera is also invited along on the Italian trip. They both start off a little rocky as they are complete opposites but there is a physical attraction between them instantly that Vera tries to deny. 

Vera asks Ian for some seduction lessons to help get her ex back in return for some help with his fashion and public image… and much to Vera’s surprise, Ian agrees. 

I loved the dynamic between them both, their banter was hilarious and when they finally gave into each other, the chemistry was incredible. The tension was written perfectly and I couldn’t wait until these two finally expressed their feelings. Their character development was perfect and I loved being on that journey with them.

I LOVE this series and Love Lessons is such a great addition to one of my favourite series. I would highly recommend this!
