Synopsis from Goodreads
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 is so gosh darn adorable, you just want to cuddle it so the warm and fuzzy will permeate through the pages and straight into your heart.
Not only does Superfan provide a wonderful romance but it also portrays a cautionary tale of the way in which spur-of-the-moment decisions spurred by emotions can often lead to major regrets. But that isn’t all, Sarina also manages to weave in a touch of suspense into the narrative where you question people and their motives.
Silas is a total unicorn; all the available good traits a person could possess and Silas has them, it really isn’t fair that one person should be so wonderful. Although he has had his fair share of set-backs, it hasn’t resulted in Silas losing his innate optimism, which is a fantastic counterpoint to Delilah’s cynicism.
My heart hurt for Delilah; it was easy to see how her upbringing in the foster system had affected her emotionally into adulthood. Compounded by her terrifying experience of being roofied, making Delilah very cynical and jaded toward people although desperately seeking unconditional love and acceptance. Unfortunately, this dichotomy has led to some major mistakes where Delilah had projected her dreams onto the wrong person in her life.
Delilah and Silas met briefly prior to embarking on their journey to becoming stars in their individual fields. Despite their mutual attraction and natural understanding of each other, the timing was against them. Skip forward 3 years and a lot of changes in both of their lives when they are confronted with another opportunity to explore their connection.
Although neither of their lives is particularly conducive to nurturing a relationship; Silas and Delilah are willing to put in the work to make this thing between them into more.
I loved how the Bruisers all supported each other and helped bring Silas and Delilah together, as well as paving the way for the future. Getting to catch up with some of my favorite characters within the Brooklyn Bruisers added to my overall esteem for Superfan.
