A goalie has to trust his instincts, even when taking a shot to the heart.
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 - his teenage daughter - doesn't approve. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.

I love listening to the Brooklyn Bruisers series. Every single book is outstanding. Pipe Dreams is narrated by Nicol Zanzarella and Rock Engel, the same narrators as the two previous books in the series, and did an awesome job portraying Mike and Lauren. Their voices are perfect for both characters. I have listened to this audiobook multiple times, it is really great. I totally recommend listening to it and the rest of the series. Seriously great audios and amazing stories. I love the Brooklyn Bruisers. I have to be honest here, I know nothing about hockey, but I love hockey romance novels. I love sports, I’m that kind of girl, but we don’t hockey in my country. Sad but true. Anyway, I just can’t get enough of it, and nobody does hockey romance quite like Sarina Bowen. I love everything Sarina Bowen writes because she’s an extremely talented writer. She’s smart and witty and smart. I mean it, she’s really smart. I love how she builds the worlds her stories live in, how relatable and real her characters are, the way she tells each story. She’s a master at making you laugh and cry, sometimes even at the same time. She writes stories full of heart and soul, and it shows. Pipe Dreams is the third book in the Brooklyn Bruisers series, but it can be read—and fully enjoyed—as a standalone. I recommend reading them all because they are all amazing, but the order is up to you. Pipe Dreams is a story about second chances and forgiveness, and it is truly beautiful. Mike Beacon is the star goalie of the Bruisers and a single father. Two years ago he had some difficult (try impossible) decisions to make and so he let the love of his life go. Now he has the opportunity to win her back, and he’ll do whatever is necessary to get the job done. Lauren Williams is ready to make some changes in her life. She’s about to make the most important one when suddenly her life is thrown out of balance by her boss, who sends her back to manage his hockey team temporarily. The same hockey team his ex-boyfriend plays for. I love Pipe Dreams very much. It’s emotional and steamy and fun. I love the fact that it’s set in different timelines, so you get to experience their past relationship. It’s an enemies to lovers story, so it shines with tension and emotion. The banter is great. And I particularly enjoy when the single parent is the guy. Makes it more fun. And it is hilarious at times. I recommend reading everything Sarina Bowen has ever written because she is, in my opinion, one of the best writers I have had the pleasure of reading, and Pipe Dreams is a great example of how good she is. As I said before, her hockey is extraordinary and the Bruisers are an amazing series. You should give this book a try. Trust me, you won’t be sorry. Probably addicted, but never sorry.
