Series: Portland Storm #8
Tired of being the second-best Babcock, Levi “501” Babcock is ready to outshine his older brother. Outranking his brother proves harder than he imagined—until he meets a sinfully sexy gold-medal-winning figure skater. She might be the prize he’s been searching for all along.
Bubbly and spirited Cadence Johnson is determined to escape the shackles of her former partner. Moving to Portland gives her the fresh start she’s craved, but the last thing she can afford is a distraction like Levi Babcock.
When Cadence’s past comes back to threaten her and her life is on the line, Levi might be the safety net she never realized she needed. But will Levi still care about Losing an Edge to his biggest rival, or can he finally step out of his brother’s shadow to become the hero in his own game?
It’s no secret that Catherine Gayle’s Portland Storm series is one of my all-time favorite reads! And the 8th installment has once again knocked my skates off!
(If you’ve never read a Portland Storm book? Pause right here, grab book #1 and get ready to fall in love!)
We finally get 501’s book! (Levi is the little brother of our beloved Jamie – who has been the most popular secondary character of the whole series, and his own book was beyond Swoonworthy!)
Levi feels a connection to Cadence – the little sister of teammate Jonny – almost immediately. But their love story? It’s beautiful. It’s realistic. It makes you so glad you grabbed this book, and sad that it’s over all too quickly.
Cadence is a world champion, gold-medal figure skater! And Levi knows at first glance that her former partner is up to no good. The emotional roller coaster this plot takes us on? It’s a tough one. But that’s what I love about Catherine Gayle, she’s not afraid to touch the deep stuff.
Long story short? If you’re a fan of hockey and romance. (Or even just one?) This book is DEFINITELY for you!!
