    I Fell In Love With Levi

    Worth the wait! I absolutely love the Portland Storm series and have read it twice; "Losing An Edge" is Levi (501) book. Having read the series, what is not to love about a Babcock boy but having 501's thoughts and feeling makes it even more real. I feel like I know the family even more after reading this book. Add in Cadence (Johny or Cam little sister) makes this series and this book come even more together as a family. Once I finished the book I wanted to read it again. Like a good movie you want to watch more than once. As an avid reader this book will be added to my list of books to reread again soon. Reading "Losing an Edge" I could feel the want and need of Levi's emotions through Catherine's writing. She has a way of portraying her characters in a way in which I feel like I am experiencing what they are. I can see the story playing out as if I were watching it on a screen. I recommend this book. It can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend the series. You will fall in love with the Storm players!

    Love me some Levi!

    Oh how I love the Babcock boys! I loved Jamie Babcock from the minute he was introduced in the Portland Storm series, but Jamie needs to make room because there is another Babcock brother that has moved on in - Levi! Levi has always felt like he played second fiddle to his older brother and he's struggling to find his own identity within the Storm and in his life off the ice. The one thing that has happened is he met Cadence Johnson, the younger sister of his teammate, who happens to have moved to Portland after winning the gold medal at the Olympics. Cadence just wants to start over. After splitting from her boyfriend, who was also her skating partner, she wants to put that part of her life behind her, however that is going to be easier said than done for several reasons. She's immediately attracted to Levi, but for those reasons previously mentioned, she loathe to get involved with anyone else. With both of these amazing young people be able to overcome the obstacles in their paths and find happiness together? Or will the past cause the two of them to end before they really begin? I absolutely adored Levi in this book. To me he's a true Babcock and he learned so much from his brother about the man he should be on the ice and also in his relationships. He was a hard ass when he needed to be, but he was sensitive, loving and all around awesome as well. It would be a wonderful thing to be loved by a Babcock boy! Kudos to Catherine Gayle for crafting an engaging, romantic, edge of your seat story for us to sink our teeth into. I'm already ready for the next book in the Storm series!

    Levi and Cadence are perfect for each other !

    Another great book in the Portland Storm series, Losing an Edge is the long-awaited story of "501". Levi Babcock is the younger brother of golden-boy Jamie (Babs), and he feels like he's been living in his shadow his entire life. It was interesting to see his struggles with self-confidence -- he has a very self-deprecating way about him that makes him endearing to the reader. It's interesting to see him come into his own as he fights his way out from behind his brother's shadow and becomes his own man. Cadence is a strong character, although she doesn't realize it. She coming out of a painful, abusive relationship and that makes her doubt Levi's feelings for her and her own judgement when it comes to men. Who knew that Levi was just the one to help her find hope for true love. Like most Catherine Gayle books, there is a great supporting cast of characters, from her new skating partner and his fiance, to Jonny and Sara and their hilarious preschool-aged son who repeats every word he hears, which in Jonny and Sara's house, means a string of out-of-place expletives. I laughed out loud several times when Connor would drop a well-place outburst at the most inappropriate time. A great addition to the Portland Storm series, one that prompted me to go back and re-read the series from the beginning again, loving each book again. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Romance with purpose...

    Levi and Cadence set the ice on fire in Losing an Edge by Catherine Gayle. Catherine Gayle mixes the importance of family, heart and a sense of belonging to create a story that has a lot to offer. Losing an Edge is not just beautiful words and compromising situations. It is a look at a relationship that grows between two people in a time of need. Ms. Gayle gave a look at the subtle differences with Levi and Cadence families. Cadence needed the love and support of her family during a rough time or she wouldn't have sought them out, but she also felt smothered by their need to protect her. Levi had a family that held an underlying aura of competitiveness that factored into his need to prove himself and affected his relationship with his brother. Loving an Edge was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Have not been reading her contemporary romances for very long but her attention to detail and her focus on social topics that are painful to talk about make for groundbreaking stories. Romance with purpose is my description of the Portland Storm series.
