Overview

USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle presents the first novel in the Portland Storm hockey romance series.

Portland Storm captain Eric "Zee" Zellinger knows how to get the job done, but leading his once elite team to victory is fast becoming a losing battle. He can't lose focus now-not with his career on the line. But when his best friend's little sister makes him an offer he can't refuse, Eric could lose the drive the team relies on from their captain.

Still in a downward spiral after a life-altering event in college, Dana Campbell is desperate to try anything to break away from the horror of that fateful night-even enlisting the help of the only man she trusts completely.

No matter how irresistible she is or how tempting the offer, Eric might not be able to cross that line-especially with the team's chance at the playoffs on the line. Now, Eric has to take one last shot, but will he choose Dana's Breakaway chance at happiness or the move that could secure his career?

Healing with love. Breakaway hit home with me on so many levels, and it made me appreciate the story all the more. Dana is a young woman that had a bright future in hockey until one terrible night after a game when she was brutally raped by a group of men. She is a former shell of herself for the obvious reasons, but she knows that she needs to overcome her fear of men to live again. After seven years of self-imprisonment she has come up with a plan to begin the healing process. She travels to visit her brothers best friend, Eric to enlist his help. Eric has always loved Dana but knows that nothing could ever come from that love, but when she shows up asking for help he cannot say no. What is supposed to be a courtship of healing becomes a full-out romance that neither Dana or Eric can prevent from happening or the heartbreak that could come from it. Breakaway is very emotional, and you feel for Dana every step of the way. Your heart breaks for her when she try’s to overcome the things we take for granted; like receiving a touch on the arm. Eric is a wonderful man that wants to do right by the woman he secretly loves, his best friend (her brother) and the hockey team he is captain of. Not everything always goes right, but he truly fights to make it right at the cost of his happiness sometimes. The cast of characters is great and not only are their some scenes that make you want to cry their are hilarious scenes that leave you smiling. I recommend readers to read this book, it’s uplifting and romantic. I am really looking forward to this series.

For a macho sports jock, Z shows incredible patience with Dana's fears after a traumatic experience in her youth. Sometimes his patience almost seemed to drag on TOO long, but touching book none the less

I love this book. As a huge hockey fan myself, it was exciting to see a whole series of hockey romances because there aren't a lot of them out.

This was well written and exposed the raw feelings of a woman who is victim of sexual abuse. The relationship of trust and love that is built between the main characters helps to make the story feel true and real.

Good book.  Loved the characters, but I am not a hockey fan.  I skipped over the parts describing thee game and the different plays.  Story was good and the character were well developed.  I did not need so much description when it came to the make out sections.

I love sports romance. I eat it up and this book was absolutely no different. This is the first book in the Portland Storm series and I know I'm going to be waiting on the edge of my seat for the next one. Dana Campbell went through a terrible tragedy 7 years ago and she is still trying to work her way through the emotions and scars, both emotional and physical, from that experience. She has panic attacks and anxiety, so she decides that she has to find a way to get past this hurdle that is beginning to define her life. Enter Eric Zellinger, a member of the Portland Storm and Dana's brother's best friend. Eric is trying to prove himself on the ice while he's been asked by Dana to help her overcome the fears that have been plaguing her for years now. Does he have it in him to split his focus between his job and this woman who desperately needs his help? Does what starts out as a favor turn into something more for Dana and Zee? How will they both handle it if it does? Catherine Gayle does an incredible job of showing the reader how Dana has handled her situation and this book shows the growth she experiences as she deals with her recovery and how good friends, family and just the right guy can make all the difference in the world. I'd highly recommend it!
