Power Play

Power Play
Posted 25 June 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

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 Smoke Signals is the second book in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series, a spinoff and companion series to Catherine Gayle’s fantastic Portland Storm series.  And like all of the books in these two series, this novel combines love, steamy romance, hockey, and real life issues that hit hard. I love hockey and I love novels about hockey. […]

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 I am a huge fan of Catherine Gayle’s hockey-themed romances!  I have read every one that she is written and they are each amazing reads.  The knowledge that the author has of hockey and the behind-the-scenes of it all is obvious and seen in the incredible attention to detail.  But the stories aren’t […]

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 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 […]

My Review On the Fly is the second book in the Portland Storm and just as deeply intense and moving as the first.  The romance in these books is beautiful, made that much more beautiful in light of the pain and emotions of the rest of the story.  It  isn’t light and it isn’t fluffy.  But […]
