All right, Sara Thomas is the daughter of the Storm's coach Scott Thomas. So, Sara has vow never to get involved with a hockey player, because her father's the coach. However, it's more than that. Oh it stems from her abandonment issues from her mother. With that said, Sara tends to push everyone away before they can leave her. Throughout the story, she kind of comes off as a witch. Seriously, you wonder why Cam puts up with her, but he gets her which scares her to death. It doesn't help that she's knocked up. Those hormones wreak havoc on anyone, so I will give her a little leeway.
Now Cam Johnson (Jonny) is a dream. I fell in love when he utter these words to Sara:
"For me, it's all or nothing. I can't ... this. If we do this, I will pursue you like no man has ever pursued you before. And even after I've caught you, I plan to continue pursuing you like my life depends on it. If you're not prepared for that, if you're not ready to be treated as something special and treasured and precious, then I need you to roll over, go back to sleep, and pretend none of this ever happened."
Talk about turning to goo. I love that he wasn't going to let Sara boss him around. However, this kind of got him into trouble a few times with Sara. Yet, he was there when she needed someone there. Basically, he was a rock throughout the story.
Both Cam and Sara dealt with abandonment issues, but they handled it different. Cam tried to man up and be someone his father wasn't. Sara pushed people away, so she couldn't get hurt.
I'd always coped by trying to be the man he hadn't been for my sisters. Sara had coped by doing everything she could to not be like her mother in anyway. Different methods. Different results. Same fears.
I have to say that I like Catherine Gayle's Portland Storm books cause you have some awesome guys and Cam is one of them. Seriously, a great guy that looks out for everyone, even when you you try to push him away. Sara, she's a bit hormonal and mean. However, it's a defense mechanism, and once I realize that it was a little bit easier to like her. Not a lot, but enough. Overall, Delay of Game is a pretty good book, because Cam makes you believe in good guys. So, if you are looking for a hockey romance with a decent guy you might give Delay of Game a try.

Another very irritating factor is that we continually read that the H grunts instead of speaks. By the end of the story I wanted to throw my Kindle after reading "He grunted" for the umpteenth time!
I'm crossing my fingers that the next book will be an improvement because I really like this author.
The writing is okay, the pacing...occasionally a tad slow, but overall okay. The plot is expected, no real surprises, but the characters...that's where Ms. Gayle shines.
Each of them have such unique personalities. That takes some gifted talent, to write a series with so many characters, yet keep them all different. The one thing I miss, though, is more interaction of the ones from previous books. They really become tertiary characters and I'd like to see them more involved in each subsequent book.
But, I'm hooked, so on to the next one.
