Erin O'Brien dreams of getting out of her hometown of Ballycraig, Ireland. Not because she hates it there, but because she wants to see the world and all the art in it. Erin fell in love with Rory Brady at the tender age of fourteen. But, after years of bliss together, he broke up with her over the phone from the United States where he was set to become a big time hockey player. Erin's dreams of a wedding and happily ever after were shattered leaving her barely a shell of her former self. With the help of her friends and all the citizens of her tiny town Emma was able to build herself back up and start over with new plans and those plans are about to take her out of Ballycraig just like she's always dreamed.

Rory Brady is the first Irish born player in the NHL, which garners him quite a bit of publicity and hero worship from fans in the states and abroad. However, he doesn't find many fans when he comes home to Ballycraig to make amends and get back the woman he loves. Rory has grand plans to win back Erin's heart but he will have to go through his former friends to do it. Is this hunky hockey player man enough to withstand the naysayers and capture his woman's heart all over again or has Erin extinguished the feelings she once harbored for him?

Breakaway is a smash hit! The eleventh installment of Deirdre Martin's Blades proves this series just keeps getting better and better! It is impossible not to fall in love with Erin and Rory and Ballycraig. The depth of emotion that Ms. Martin has packed into this novel is outstanding. I just love Erin and Rory! Erin wants so badly to rebuke his offers of kindness but it's difficult to ignore the feelings still lingering. I also love love love Rory! Here is a man who knows he was the biggest ass and he plans to make up for it. His attempts to woo Erin are downright adorable. There is a scene in Breakaway that is so hot and sweet it's perfect.

Breakaway in many ways is so real. You have real people with real problems trying to survive in a hard time. A local tavern that oozes personality and controlling mams with their own agenda. There is a part that I was unsure about at first. Erin has all this confidence that she's grown since the big break up but when she finally attains her dreams she begins to feel insecure. I didn't like that but after thinking about it I know it happens all the time. Sometimes people fear their dreams and never act on them and then other times they get their dreams only to see them slip away because of doubt. I feel that Ms. Martin keeps it real with Erin. She is a conflicted woman and just because you are not confident in everything doesn't make you less of a person.

Breakaway will take your breath away with its majestic romance, beautiful setting and remarkable writing. This one's a must read and I'm Joyfully Recommending it!

Breakaway By Deirdre Martin continues her delightful and sexy Blades series.

Erin O'Brien and Rory Brady were the town of Ballycraig in Ireland's perfect young couple. That is until Rory broke Erin's heart and left her to pursue a pro career as a hockey player in the USA. Erin has never gotten over the hurt that Rory's leaving her caused and she is none to pleased to find him back in town for the summer.

Rory Brady thought leaving Erin was for the best but he soon realized all the money and fame was empty without Erin. He vows to win back Erin and redeem himself in the town eyes.

Erin has her own dreams, she doesn't want to work for her parents B&B for the rest of her life. She is taking online classes and is going to leave Ballycraig behind her when she goes. Erin hadn't planned on Rory doing a hat trick to get her back into his bed and into his life.

Erin and Rory both have to find forgiveness in their hearts in order to forge a future together. Rory has his work cut out for him when Erin thinks she isn't good enough for him. Can these two lovers find their happy every after?

Deirdre Martin does another emotional, funny and sexy read. Her characters are like long lost friends that you can't wait to catch up on their lives. I love how characters from previous books make their appearance as well. Deirdre Martin is an auto buy for me.

I almost skipped this one due to some of the reviews, I'm glad to say I didn't. The characters were well written and their story and issues believable. Too often, we try and make the characters fit our personality and nature. She had lived in a small town in Ireland her whole life and the bottom line was she never quit loving him. This happens in real life...people leave flowers on graves for divorced spouses years after they died....

I loved how she brought Esa into the story. It tied the book up with the others and has made me anxious to read his story. Not every book is for everyone, this one was definitely one I enjoyed.

Deirdre Martin's books are always good. Her characters are interesting and she doesn't let the reader get bored with her dialogue. That's a plus for me.
