"Ali is a super amazing author. She has such a way with words. If you have never checked out her books you need to because her books are worth so much more than what they sell for. This one about Lucas and Aubrey is a sweet romantic story. You will become addicted to Ali if you just read just one of her books I highly highly highly recommend her and all of her books."
"I loved this book! Ali Parker has done it again. What a great start to a new series. This is an exciting book starting out on page 1,and continues that way through the whole book. Ali always does such a great job developing her characters, so that you feel like you know them personally, as you do here. I really like both Lucas and Aubrey. They are both such strong characters. This book is a standalone, but I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series."
"I started this book half an hour before I went to bed, thinking I would read a few chapters and relax. Oh no. From the initial interaction all the way through the ups and downs and struggles with betraying friendships I couldn't put it down. Even if there were parts that were definitely over the top and just plain impossible(no man-college or otherwise-is actually that truly remarkable) I found the hope and optimism of the possibility infectious. Just can not say enough good about this book."
"This was my first book by Ali Parker and I will definitely read more of her work. Breakaway was an interesting read -- I don't know anything about hockey but this story about the men on a college hockey team and the women who love them (one couple in particular) held my attention and I enjoyed the getting involved with Lucas and Aubrey's story"
"I truly enjoyed the theme, story line, characters, log hearted banter & wittiness, deep dark issues, real life fears, hopes & choices, as well as the tenor, speed &fluidity of the flow throughout. Anyways, if you're prudish, pass. Otherwise,with a little openness and a tiny bit of daring, don't miss out! Again, it was REALLY GOOD! Happy reading friends!"
"Really enjoyed this College sport's romance. It was light and fun with some underlying drama. Lucas is the hockey captain and Aubrey a dancer,both have their own dreams and passionate goals to strive for. The story flowed fast and it was hard to put down.Despite being mostly a fun story there were background issues with drugs, suicide and parental pressures. The characters had depth and the banter between them and the secondary characters made for a great read. I highly recommend this book."
"I absolutely loved this book! Lucas is hot, smart, captain of the hockey team, and my new book boyfriend! Aubrey is beautiful, strong,independent, and a ballerina/dancer. Will one of them get the courage to say how they feel and see where it goes? I'm so impressed with the author's, Ali Parker, attention to detail! I have danced growing up and her description of Aubrey's pain, feet, etc... well, if you have ever experienced it as a dancer,you will know what I mean! This is an emotional and amazing book!"
"I enjoy Ali Parker's books. Her books are an escape from the real world for a while. Breakaway, on the surface, is about a hockey team, the team captain, and the ice girls. Underneath, Ali explores family dynamics and defines what it mean to live for yourself. I do hope that we get to see more of Aubrey and Lucas throughout this series. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about people who figure out what is important and follow their passion."
