Buy This Book:
Mike Beacon is a champion at defending the net, but off the ice, he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never forgotten Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers office during the playoffs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right.
Lauren hates that she’s forced to travel with the team she used to work for and the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go down that road again. She’s focused on her plans for the future—she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true.
Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach.
One of Mike’s biggest fans doesn’t approve—his teenage daughter. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.
Pipe Dreams was a book I almost didn't finish, it almost landed in my DNF pile. I can't believe it. A Sarina Bowen book. But I just could not for the life of me get past the whole reason for the new relationship, or how Mike just went about going into it, I didn't like him as a husband, I didn't like him as a father, I didn't like him at all.
Mike was one of those characters that constantly put me off everything he did and why he was doing it. I just couldn't get past it.
Lauren deserved a better partner out of the deal, she was a decent chick but I just didn't think that she and Mike were a good fit.
Until next time book lovers...
