My Review Power Play is the latest in Cattherine Gayles’s Portland Storm series. I can’t say enough good things about this series. The stories are always full of raw emotions and deeply intense situations. The characters are real and smudged with the often harsh realities of life, not sugar coated to become some kind of plastic “ideal.” […]

My Review I truly love the Portland Storm books and I am never disappointed by them!  The stories are beautifully written, with all of the romance you could ever want right along with deep, emotionally intense issues.  And this one was so much more than romance,..  This is the story of a little girl who refused to […]

My Review Now anyone who reads my reviews knows that I am an avid fan girl of Catherine Gayle’s Portland Storm books.  I absolutely love hockey, so I appreciate a good book written around that theme.  But Catherine’s books are so  much more than hockey romance.  They are intensely emotional stories about real people.  There is […]

My Review As always, this is a book that brought me to tears.  As much as I love a good hockey book, this series is about so much more than that.  They are emotionally charged characters going through real issues.  Those issues aren’t prettied up and softened, but shown in all their raw, gritty reality. […]

My Review As always, I love this latest installment in the Portland Storm series by Catherine Gayle!  This is a shorter read, but it is a fantastic addition to the series! Holiday Hat Trick is not on the ice this time, but takes place over the league-mandated holiday days off.  It centers on a newer player, […]

My Review I have been a big fan of this series since the very beginning!   I am not usually a big reader of too much contemporary romance, but this series has me hooked.  The entire series is based around the fictional NHL team, the Portland Storm.  There is no denying my love of hockey, […]

My Review I have loved every book in the Portland Storm series and this one is a great addition to the series!  It is a collection of epilogues to the first four books in the series, so we get to revisit some of our favorite couples.  And the story lines are just as emotionally driven as ever, […]

My Review This is the book/novella I have been waiting for!  This is the story of Jamie/Babs and Katie, two of the characters that I fell in love with in the second book, On the Fly.  I love these books for so many reasons… hockey, romance, and real issues and emotions.  This one is no different. […]

My Review I have loved this series since the very first book!  Hockey and romance and real issues… what’s not to love?!  Cam is a fabulous romantic hero, strong and powerful, yet a big softie at heart.  Sara is a great character, totally devoted to her father and carrying a bit of baggage of her […]
