    This book mimics our current reality

    I have loved every book in this series but I love how much this book mimics our current reality. Nate and Anne have a flirtatious relationship that begins innocently as just hockey player and journalist. During the filming of Eye of the Storm and the issues they are both facing they begin to fall for one another. This book touches on many current events and problems that exist in todays society such as racism, gender equality, social media bullying, and personal body issues. Many people will be able to relate to the social issues in this book and the hockey storyline and attractive men are a bonus. Loved this book.

    A timely sports romance

    *I received an ARC in exchange for posting my honest review* The first chapter absolutely gripped me. Catherine Gayle is so good at highlighting the emotions her characters struggle with and the reader can feel it run through them. This is such a timely romance in which the characters face outside criticism, racism, sexism, homophobia, and physical pain. The negative circumstances contrast beautifully with the support, friendship, and love the characters also experience. That said, with all the outside stressors the couple got lost a little at first for me. I was immediately hooked, but slow to keep reading (well slow, compared to the way I typically devour this author's books). I wanted to feel a stronger love connection between them, or more compelled to see them come together. I was more interested in their individual stories than their journey as a couple. However, in the second half, things begin happening rapid fire. Emotions are high, and the challenges perfectly highlight the relationships among friends, family, teammates, and especially the burgeoning love between Nate and Anne. I really liked how Anne's career gave us intimate glimpses into the other couples and families in the Storm family. Of course, the reader also gets introduced to new characters and storylines. Finally, I'm once again in awe of the seamless way this author provides in depth hockey information and game scenes for fans of the sport, while not losing sight of the underlying personal and romance stories that appeal to a wide range of readers. This series is great, and each story is markedly different than the next to keep me coming back for more.

    This book hits home.

    This book hits home. Hot button, relevant issues in today's world are addressed in Catherine Gayle's latest book. What's different about her take on these issues is that beyond noting that these events happen, in the real world and in the world of the Portland Storm, Gayle explains how these types of events impact individual lives. She doesn't just acknowledge issues, she explores how they affect team, family, and romantic relationships. What I loved more than anything, though, is the way that the book is set up. With reporter Anne producing a web series about the Portland Storm, readers are caught up on all of the Portland Storm characters they know and love while also watching Anne grow professionally and personally as she handles her conflicting emotions about falling in love with Nate Ghost, a player on the team. This isn't just a love story. It's a coming-into-your-own story, and it reflects the current atmosphere of the real world more than maybe any other romance I've ever read.

    Diversity, Friendship and Love

    Intense read! Many topics covered that are considered off limits by society. Situation brought into play and discussed and lived that is currently affecting our nation. These two characters must face these issues. Will they face them together or choose to face them apart. Ghost has to face racism for the first time in his life. Anne being a mixed race female trying to make it in a mans world. Add in bigots, racist, sexiest , and ignorance mix it will a little alcohol and adrenaline makes for an interesting lesson. Get ready to get mad and ready to grab the tissue. Situations will be brought to light that we may not often think about unless we have had to face them ourselves. Great book to read. Catherine did well with this one.

    Another winner in this series!

    Game Breaker is the ninth installment in Catherine Gayle's Portland Storm series and it's a great one! Nate "Ghost" Golston is coming into his own in the NHL and is poised to be one of the stars of the post season for the Storm. He has been attracted to Anne Dennison for some time and the two have previously skirted around flirting with one another. When Anne is hired to be the producer of the Storm's new online web series, she is faced with having to make decisions about the way she does her job, which could end up costing her the job that she has wanted for years and fought to obtain and it could also cost her a chance with Nate. Will Anne have to focus on things in Nate's life that will put a strain on their burgeoning relationship? And, will she have to hurt other people she's come to care about because of what she's being asked to do at work? It's no secret that I love the realness of Catherine Gayle's novels and this one is no exception. This book contains real life issues that we are hearing about and seeing in our papers and on the news nearly every day. I applaud her for tackling these issues and handling them in such a delicate, yet amazing fashion. Another great addition to this series that I would recommend.
