From the Author
The books of the Portland Storm series are hockey romances, but they go much deeper than the sport of hockey. These books touch on real-world issues such as rape, cancer, miscarriage, bullying, PTSD, grief, addiction, and many other similar subjects. If you have triggers, be aware that these books may very well contain material which could trigger you. That said, I endeavor to tackle these issues with sensitivity and compassion.
Additionally, many readers have requested that I put a TISSUE WARNING on the books in this series. I've received notes from readers about every single book in the series, in which readers tell me how the characters and the story brought them to tears. You may not need tissues for each book--the story line that resonates most for you may not be the one that others responded to in that way--but don't say I didn't warn you.
On that note, I have another warning for you: my hockey players curse like...well...hockey players. And there is a fair amount of sex in these books. If cursing and sex aren't your cup of tea, these books probably won't be, either.

You do not need to read the Thunderbirds series to enjoy the Storm series, although there are likely to be a few storylines that overlap to a small degree.

I really enjoyed reading Game Breaker by Catherine Gayle. I've been hooked on this series right from the beginning, gobbling up each book as soon as I can get my hands on them and this one was no different. I especially enjoyed the current events aspect of this story line and Catherine did an excellent job with giving us thought provoking topics while still capturing the essence of all the characters we've come to love along the way. I loved touching on the "human aspect" of what these athletes deal with every day versus just spotlighting the fame and glory. I respect that she fills her books with real life struggles and she writes characters that you can't help but cheer for along the way. This story introduced us to some potential new story lines - fingers crossed that maybe Luke will get a happily ever after in the future.
People who have enjoyed the other books in this series would be crazy to pass this one up. For those who have not read the earlier books, it stands alone as a great afternoon read. Although, I guarantee once you start, you will go back and want to read the others.
I would gladly recommend this book to anyone young adult on up, it's a fast read with a great message!
Nate and Anne are a couple like no other. Each character trying to overcome diversity while trying to also find their spot in this crazy world. Nate has his battles in a white-dominated world. Anne has her battles in a male-dominated world. How do these two overcome such hurdles? Will the two find love like all of the Storm before them?
Anne knows she has to succeed. A behind the scenes web series brings these two closer than anyone could have imagined. Nate and Anne will have to prove to everyone that they are more than capable of success.
Another excellent installment in the Portland Storm series. I can't wait for the next book!
Wow! Loved this book! I cannot say that enough. This is the next addition in the Portland Storm series and it is a must read. This is the story of Anne and Nate "Ghost" Gholston, both are very successful in their field but also minorities in their chosen profession. Anne is producing a web-documentary in the life of the Portland Storm and Nate is just coming into his prime as an elite hockey player. This book touched on some sensitive social issues in an very tasteful way. It was very current as to the state of our County and World today and put some light on these issues through a different perspective.
I loved the interaction between the players and way that they truly came together like a family and had each other's back. I also loved Anne, she was strong and sure about herself professionally, but had insecurities about herself on a personal level. I liked seeing her evolve and face her issues head on.
I Was glad to get some updates on other players, the Web family as well as a sneak/peak into information that is important in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series.
I would highly recommend this book. It's a hockey romance with substance, but also will make you laugh out loud. Another win for Catherine Gayle!
In this case however, the story didn't seem to be as focussed on the relationship between Anne and Nate. Maybe that is because these two had history which pre-dated the kick-off point of this volume; maybe because of the other issues being dealt with. For me, this story felt a little diluted as a result.
That's not to say that it wasn't enjoyable, because it was, but I never really connected to the depth of feelings between these two characters.
