Caryn wanted to make her life mean something more than being the one to take over her dad's business. She was not looking to find love but love did want her. She encounters the last man in the world that her parents would approve of for their daughter. Andrew was nothing more than a hockey player. He was not good enough for Caryn, but she was falling and hard. There romance was something that changed both their lives. I was loving these two interactions and build of their relationship. I found the writing to be engaging and interactive.

Caryn meets Andrew when they literally run into one another. The attraction is immediate, and mutual. Until he finds out about her dislike of athletes and that she is young & still in school. Andrew wants no more of the party days that are behind him. Caryn represents the future and all he could have, if they can just find that common ground that seems so elusive. Can he show her they have a shot? I really enjoyed this book. I found the characters and plot interesting and at a good pace. So glad there is more to this series, since this is a great start to another hockey series to sit on my shelf for a re-read. ***This copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 of 5 Stars Robyn M. Ryan’s THIS PIECE OF MY HEART is a great start to the Clearing the Ice series. While attending summer school, College student, Caryn Stevens, literally runs into NHL star, Andrew Chadwick, and sparks fly. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Toronto, Ottawa, and St. Louis. It is suitable for New Adult audiences. THIS PIECE OF MY HEART is a cute story. I like how the characters met. Andrew is a sweet guy. He is supportive and believes in Caryn. Caryn is likeable. Her father is understandably overprotective. However, he goes overboard by pretty much controlling her life. I like that she eventually does what she wants. The characters grew throughout the story and overcame obstacles. Andrews ex, Monique, is dramatic, manipulative, and selfish. She is the opposite of Caryn. I’m glad he wised up and got rid of her. She causes some interesting complications in the story. Not to mention the stuff Caryn’s father pulls. I appreciated how Andrew was supportive during that time. THIS PIECE OF MY HEART is an enjoyable read. The story was believable and the characters likeable. I like how the story ended and look forward to reading the couples story in the next book, THIS PIECE OF MY SOUL, scheduled to release on January 1, 2017. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
