Sometimes lady luck shakes your hand, and sometimes she smacks your face. Sometimes she does both on the same day.
Three years ago I met the most amazing girl in the world. We were both down on our luck. Then I got that call—the one that tells you to get your buns on a plane to go meet your destiny.
But the girl was left behind. I didn’t have her phone number, and she didn’t know my real name.
While I became a professional hockey player, she became a superstar, with platinum records and legions of fans. And a slick, music producer boyfriend who treated her badly.
But fate wasn’t done with us yet. When Delilah turns up at a hockey game, I can’t resist making contact. The internet swoons when I ask her out on a date.
She might not remember me. But her jerkface ex does. He’ll do anything to keep us apart.
Good thing athletes never give up. This time I’m playing for keeps.

Superfan — that’s me, I’m a Sarina Bowen Superfan!
I’m not sure how to explain this, but Bowen’s voice was different with this book. The story was so fluid and engaging, and the characters were brilliantly portrayed. Don’t get me wrong, I loved her other books, but this one was crazy good!
Silas is the one in the other books in this series, who was obsessed with the singer, Delilah Spark, and her music. His teammates always teased him about his choice of music, but he didn’t care, and now we know why!
Silas had thought his NHL career was over before it ever started. He hadn’t been picked up by a team, and the outlook for him didn’t look promising. He was working as a bartender in the town he grew up in. He’d become bitter and slightly depressed. The only bright spot to his days was when Delilah Spark walked into his bar. She was in town for the annual music festival. She was an aspiring artist who hoped to one day, headline the event. Silas was the bright spot of her days, too. Her manager was a world class jerk and made her life miserable. But she needed him, and even though she didn’t trust easily, she had to trust that he would help her career. As the days past, Silas and Delilah became experts at flirting with one another. Silas tried to get Delilah to go on a date with him and to give him her phone number, but she never would — if she had given him those seven numbers, the two would not have missed out on so much time!
Delilah is my favorite female character from Bowen. She’s a smart, go-getter who refuses to be defined by her circumstances. When life tries to knock her down, she gets back up and fights. She takes control and refuses to stay down.
This slow burn romance was breathtaking, the writing was spectacular, and the characters were captivating. Together, they were the perfect couple. She was his always, and he was her forever.
A definite favorite of the year, ‘Superfan’ is my favorite Bowen book, to date!
