Happy to find some modern romance with realistic characters who are facing real life issues. I enjoyed that the same characters are woven throughout and you get to know more about them as the series goes on. As a hockey player, NHL fan and hockey girlfriend, I was unexpectedly delighted on how spot on the author is about the chemistry and character of hockey players in general. It's still a romance novel, of course, so it's more warm and fuzzy than reality... But the team-is-your-family feeling of our community is oh so true to life, and I rarely see it written about so well!

OMG Book 1 Break Away: we see Dana Campbell & Captain of the Portland Storm, Ice Hockey team Eric Zellinger, who's her older brother Brenden “Soupy”'s best friend. And heck she went something deep, dramatic, NOT, SOMETHING ANYONE WOULD WANT TO GO THROUGH. And she WANTS/NEEDS Erick to help her past, her past, even though her might ONLY SEE her like a disaster. Emotional
Book 2 On The Fly: Emotional storyline, is WORSE than Dana's one, where we meet Single Mum of 2 Rachel Shaw, who turns up at the Storm Company for the new personal assistant to the General Manager of the Storm. And it's in seconds of her arriving that Brenden 'Soupy' Campbell wants her, then after getting the job, she gets a condo straight next door to Soupy. And the beginning of the story we hear, her heartbreaking reason of moving to Portland from Texas. Beautiful with some humorous episodes along that pull of the heartstrings.
Book 3 Taking a Shot: This one is shorter as it's where we see a different emotional story but this is to do with, the cute, sexy Jamie Babcock & the one girl he dreams of & sees constantly, his team mate Webber's High School Senior Katie, where we see that he's going to be able to GET that 1 date with her & that date is being her date to her Prom & heck that was a beautiful date, if ever there's one. Can't wait to see more of what may come during the rest of the serious, which I'm sure there will be.
Book 4 Light This Lamp: 1 little negative on this his book is that I feel like that Liam Kallan doesn't sound as if he's Swedish & he's only been in Portland just over a couple of weeks, so they don't know much about him except that his Wife Liv had a horrific accident. And when he came across Noelle, she seems like she's in a similar position, had he felt he had to get her away from that situation. Noelle though is such a person who see's good & light in everyone & everything that happens, NO MATTER how dire & traumatic a situation is.
THIS WAS MY FIRST PIECE OF WORK THAT I HAVE READ BY CATHERINE GAYLE & I LOVE THESE ALPHA MALES & THE WOMEN WHO HAVE AREAS WHERE THERE'S DEEP TRAUMA
