    Another score for Catherine Gayle!

    Mattias Bergstrom, head coach of the Portland Storm, is known for keeping his softer side under wraps. He only wants his players to see the hard-assed former player they’ve always known about. The only person who really gets to see it is his sister Linnea who was born with Down syndrome. Bergy has been successful in keeping his private side private until he meets a young girl who reminds him of the sister he loves so much. Paige Calhoun has brought her four daughters to the StormSkillz event and they couldn’t be more excited. All four girls are giddy over the anticipation of seeing their favorite Storm players, especially 501 – Levi Babcock. When Paige’s youngest daughter spots 501, she is off to claim him for herself and when the Storm’s head coach steps in, Paige suddenly becomes as googlie-eyed as her daughters. Bergy is immediately drawn to the young girl and sees so much of his sister in her. He decides to give Paige and her girls a weekend they are never going to forget. Will it end after the weekend, or is there more in store for Matti and Paige? This book tugs at your heartstrings in the most delicious way. I loved the way this story unfolded and watching the normally closed off Matti interact so openly with Paige and her girls was wonderful. Catherine Gayle has once again crafted a story that you don’t want to put down!

    Great contribution to Portland Storm series

    Home Ice is a novella in the Portland Storm series and the only complaint I have is that it wasn't a longer book - it ended too soon. In typical Catherine Gayle fashion, she includes an aspect of a social element to each of her books and in Home Ice, it's living with a child with Downs Syndrome. The author wonderfully depicts the sweet innocence of Paige's daughter with DS. Mattias is immediately drawn to Paige's daughter because he has a sister with DS. And then he sees Paige, and he is a goner! Also in typical Catherine Gayle fashion, Home Ice has plenty of heat. Having older children myself, I enjoyed seeing a bit more of a "mature" love relationship. The author demonstrates the challenge of dating with children, and planning around alternate weekends, and babysitters, and having to go out as a family instead of a couple. But that didn't take away from the heat that Mattias and Paige generate when they are away from the prying eyes of the kids. Paige's older, teenage kids also add a fun aspect to the story, with their giggling worship of the Portland Storm players, their teasing of their mother when Mattias asks her out, and even their horror when they try to text their mom and Mattias, and suffer the fate of autocorrect. It all made the love story seem very real and very relatable. Another great contribution to the Portland Storm series. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
