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!

This audiobook was pure perfection!! Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks were amazing as Mark and Stevie! Both were just the right amount of sexy and sweet and even if you've already read the book, I definitely recommend the audio! Every emotion is heightened and the narration will have you feeling all the feels! Aaron Shedlock is beyond sexy and continues to amaze me with his range and talent! A fantastic book and wonderful audio!
I originally read the ebook of Breakaway, and have included my review below:
I loved this second chance contemporary sports romance! It was a lighter read than I'm used to from this author, but it still packed an emotional punch.
Mark and Stevie's journey was so beautifully imperfect and honest. Their insecurities and vulnerabilities made them even more endearing and relatable. I loved that Stevie was not the typical romance heroine. For starters, she is older than our hero by 7 years. She is curvy and sometimes self conscious and she isn't warring with her biological clock about whether or not she's going to have children. Mark was also atypical, preferring a quieter existence instead of the usual manwhore athlete portrayed so often in books. The chemistry between these two was palpable and undeniable. Every touch and lingering glance made my heart beat faster and the build up was so amazingly delicious!
I really enjoyed all the details about hockey and about the commitment it takes to play at the professional level. In a way, hockey was it's own character in this book, causing both pain and joy. I personally don't know very much about hockey, so it was fun to learn right along with Stevie too. The secondary characters were just as wonderful (how cute was Mark's family!?) and I'm hoping that we will be seeing more of Reagan and Bryson (perhaps romantically, perhaps not) in the future. Definitely recommend this one!

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.
