From the back cover...

This is a novella of second epilogues to books 1-4 in the Portland Storm series. It is approximately 35,000 words long.

It’s the NHL’s draft day, but the whole Portland Storm team is back together for an entirely different event. Complete with a double wedding, an unanticipated guest, overdue apologies, unexpected goodbyes, and fresh starts, this big day has the potential to get them all called for a Double Major.

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, with real issues and with all the messiness that comes along with real life

The novella gets everyone back together, but this time it isn’t for hockey.  It is for a double wedding within the Portland Storm family.  I love that each section is from a different perspective, each telling their own story while adding to the main event.  There are parts that had me on edge and other parts that had me in tears.

Things to love…

  • The emotions.  They aren’t sugar-coated and the reality really draws the reader in.
  • The story lines.  Not everything is perfect, with perfect endings.  I love that because that is real

Things I wanted more/less of…

  • More everyone, which is why I can’t wait for the next book!

My Recommendation

If you love hockey, this is a fantastic series that really brings the pro hockey world to life.  The story lines are those of real life, messiness and all,  Books 1-4 should definitely precede Double Major.
