For 13 years, Stevie West drowned in her lackluster life. Recently divorced from her “roommate” with passionless benefits, she was ready to start over on her own. Until she ran into him. The same man she'd met one year ago. The temptation that had finally given her the courage to find herself again.
When lightning strikes twice, there’s no way to deny the chemistry it creates. But with both of them still nursing old wounds, Mark and Stevie will have to find a way around the other's defenses, a way to break away and score the one thing they never expected… love.

What a great feel good hockey romance! I knew I'd like this book before I started because of the author and narrators but I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. The characters are great, they are both the kind of people you would want in your real life. Both of them looking to start over and it's a second chance romance too! Mark is an all around nice guy, not once during this book did I stop loving him! Stevie is the same, she is good and just looking to be happy again. Neither were looking for each other but both of them gave it a shot without any unnecessary drama which is a huge plus for me! This book left me feeling happy and that for me is always the way to end a great book! I hope there will be more books in this world!
The narration was great! I am a big fan of both Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks and I really enjoy them together. I think they really compliment each other and their voices, tone and pace are always perfectly in sync!

There are no words!
Sports romance, second chances, incredible chemistry and a dog!! This book has so many things in it that I love. Not the typical listen by AM Johnson, I was wondering how this would compare to the other amazing books. It is nothing short of incredible. Johnson has taken us into the world of professional hockey, showing us the ups and downs of being famous and trying live life normally and how age is not a factor in true love. Stevie and Mark definitely have their ups and downs, but with time, love and trust we are living and loving through them. This is a heartfelt story that is sure to warm you on and off the ice!
Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks are narration team beyond compare. The character of Mark needs a voice that is commanding, yet vulnerable and Shedlock masters this with such ease. He is this character and you cannot help but love him. Stevie on the other hand is insecure and emotional, and finding her inner strength. Marks has given her voice all these characteristics, and we grow right along with Stevie. Fantastic narration!

A sort of, second chance sporting romance following NHL ice hockey star Mark Carmelo and divorcee accountant and ice hockey virgin Stevie West. Their paths cross in a sports bar and they instantly click, unfortunately Stevie is married so things go no further. Fast forward 1 year and Stevie is newly divorced and moving back to the city, another chance meeting and a relationship ensues. However they both have to deal with the ghosts of past relationships, can they survive and get past old wounds? Told in dual POV, a well written, enjoyable story with lovable characters. The story definitely came into itself during the second half, I couldn’t take a breath. The narrators were perfect, two of my favourites. They kept me in the zone throughout the story.

An amazing ice hockey romance
If you could sum up Breakaway in three words, what would they be?
HOT, sweet & butterflies
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved Mark he was the perfect alpha boyfriend with a sweet true side. He had a rough time in the past and found it hard to trust again but he was just perfect. I loved that he was such a family man and would protect the people he loved and cared for so much.
What does Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I just love Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock they sound amazing together and they pull you into the story so completely. I think Aaron was so good at voicing Mark I have listened to a few of his narrations but think this is my favourite he just got the tone spot on for me. Tracy Marks is perfection as always I could listen to her all day.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
A second chance at love
Any additional comments?
i loved this book I was sad when it ended as I felt I wanted to know more about Mark and Stevie. I hope AM Johnson does a second book about the best friends as i felt lots of chemistry. I lovely book so glad I got the chance to listen.
