Levi has always felt like he played second fiddle to his older brother and he's struggling to find his own identity within the Storm and in his life off the ice. The one thing that has happened is he met Cadence Johnson, the younger sister of his teammate, who happens to have moved to Portland after winning the gold medal at the Olympics.
Cadence just wants to start over. After splitting from her boyfriend, who was also her skating partner, she wants to put that part of her life behind her, however that is going to be easier said than done for several reasons. She's immediately attracted to Levi, but for those reasons previously mentioned, she loathe to get involved with anyone else.
With both of these amazing young people be able to overcome the obstacles in their paths and find happiness together? Or will the past cause the two of them to end before they really begin?
I absolutely adored Levi in this book. To me he's a true Babcock and he learned so much from his brother about the man he should be on the ice and also in his relationships. He was difficult when he needed to be, but he was sensitive, loving and all around awesome as well. It would be a wonderful thing to be loved by a Babcock boy!
Kudos to Catherine Gayle for crafting an engaging, romantic, edge of your seat story for us to sink our teeth into. I'm already ready for the next book in the Storm series!
Just like his brother Jamie; Levi is always so sweet to almost every single person he comes in contact with. Both brother's seem to have brought up the right way, as far as I'm concerned. But....I don't mind admitting that my poor, poor heart instantly melts every single time we get to see the way Levi interacts with sweet little Sophie. Yes, the way they first met was a bit unconventional, but it's the way he swept her up into his arms that day, and the way that he has continued to treat her like a true princess from that day on that won my heart, and Sophie's too, for that matter.
I loved Cadence from the very start. I am so glad that she finally decided to leave her old skating partner to move to Portland. After all; it takes a lot of courage to leave a situation like that and she deserves to be with someone who respects her. And just like Levi; she loves her family and cares deeply for her friends. Although, I found it very understandable why she would initially be cautious of Levi in the beginning, especially after putting up with Guy, the control freak for years. I thought Levi and Cadence made a very cute couple, and no one could deny their instant chemistry. It was off the charts HOTTTTT!!!!
It was nice to be able to catch up with some of our past favorite like: Jamie and Katie, Jonny, Sara and their kids, Hammer, Koz, Bergy, Paige, Sophie, Ghost, and Harry. I also thought that Cadence's new friends Anthony and Jesse were not only a great addition to the group, but they sort of made me giggle quite a few times along the way, too. I hope that's not the last we see of them though, I think they should hang around awhile longer to keep things interesting. We also got to spend a little time with some other upcoming potential love interests for a couple of the guys.
But the one that made me laugh the most, well besides sweet little Sophie....was little Connor. What a holy terror, but Lord, you've got to love that little demon! ;) Jonny and Sara are sure gonna have their hands full by the time that kid reachs his teenage years. lol!
Bravo to Catherine Gayle for giving us yet another fabulous addition to this Portland Storm team, and their family and friends. I love the way you throw in a little suspense into the mix to keep us on our toes, you always include a serious issue or two, in order to make us all more aware about those who may be suffering all around us on a daily basis in real life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for just being the great writer you are.
The beautiful figure skater Cadence Johnson moves to Portland to escape her past and try start a new chapter in her life. She is the baby sister to Cam "Jonny" Johnson. Although she appreciates his protective nature, she would like to spread her wings.
Both Levi and Cadence have self esteem issues and whether that flaw is what draws them to each other or the inherant need to be needed by someone, I'm not sure. Whatever it is, these two are meant to be together. Loved Levi so hard! So sweet and so willing to champion Cadence. Momma Babcock raised her boys well!
Loved seeing the whole team again especially Babs and Katie. As always, Ms. Gayle brings us the the passion surrounding professional hockey. It's easy to get caught up in cheering for the home team!
Your heartstrings will be pulled on this one. Such a great romantic read! Looking forward to more!!
