BLOG TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - Breakaway (Pilots Hockey #5) by Sophia Henry
Breakaway - Sophia Henry

In a standalone hockey romance that tugs at readers’ heartstrings, a broken ex-pro learns to live and love again—all thanks to the complicated, wonderful nurse who gives him a second chance.

Brianna Collins needs to break away from her overbearing family. Her parents expect her to “fix” her brother after a series of concussions derailed his hockey career. Unfortunately, no doctor will give him clearance to play, and she’s finished with being the person they rely on to perform a miracle that will never happen. For Bree, a six-month nursing assignment at a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the perfect escape.

Luke Daniels, former forward for the NHL’s Charlotte Aviators, has spent close to a year rehabbing a career-threatening injury—and distracting himself however he can. Worlds collide when Luke realizes that the girl from his latest one-night-stand happens to be the new nurse at the hospital where he volunteers in the pediatric unit. What’s more, Bree’s the only person who makes him excited about life again.

Despite her initial reservations, Luke can’t help pursuing sweet, beautiful Bree. Then he realizes it was her brother whose career he ended with an accidental hit, and he falls back on the thing that’s always helped suppress his demons: alcohol. But if Luke doesn’t kick his old habits, he just may lose the one thing he loves more than hockey.

An instant attraction that kept me reading.
Breakaway - Sophia Henry

I did not want to stop reading this story. Luke's past and how it affected him then and now touched my heart. Bree's openness, honesty, and generosity had me cheering for this couple. There were times when I had tears in my eyes, when a giggle escaped unguarded, and when I held my breath that it would be too much. These two are meant to be together, and I cheered for them. I highly recommend this book as well as the series, and I look forward to more from this author.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Breakaway - Sophia Henry

I absolutely loved this book by Sophia Henry. This is a great series, but you don't have to read all of the books to before to follow along but it is nice to. Bree is a nurse that wants to get away from her troubles at home so she takes a job in North Carolina. Luke Daniels is a player for the NHL team the aviators and he was injured and has been rehabbing and hoping to get back in the ice but he learns that it is a career ending injury. These two are great together and seeing how they make each other grow and learn to move on. This is one of my foavirites of this series.

Book Blitz - Power Play

Power Play
Sophia Henry
(Pilots Hockey #2)
Publication date: February 16th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance

In Sophia Henry’s blistering follow-up to Delayed Penalty, hailed as “sexy, fun, and full of angst” by L. P. Dover, a good girl and a hockey hunk face off against expectations—and this match is guaranteed to see plenty of action.

Beneath her innocent facade, Gabriella Bertucci has her reasons to be standoffish with guys. Especially guys like Landon Taylor, a star defenseman on the minor-league Detroit Pilots and the object of a serious crush since he first walked into her family’s market. But when Landon comes through for her in a moment of crisis, Gaby starts to wonder if there might be more to Landon than hard muscles and fast skates.

Landon isn’t afraid of telling Gaby that he’s got it for her bad. The problem is, she seems unwilling to believe it. And though Landon enjoys his reputation as a cool-headed athlete, he hates losing—both on the rink and off. It’s his competitiveness that makes him so damn good at what he does . . . but it also makes him just a little bit complicated.

One minute Gaby’s tempted to give in; the next, she’s getting cold feet. How can she trust a guy who’s destined for bigger and better things to stick around? Then again, when Landon pulls her close with those powerful arms, the only thing that matters is right now.

EXCERPT:

 

Intro: Gaby works at a store that Landon’s family have been patrons at for years, so they’ve known each other on a friendly level. In the second chapter, Landon tries to prove to Gaby that he isn’t a stranger. They have a natural, easy way with each other and great banter. This is a scene with a fun exchange between Gaby and Landon. This snippet comes from end of the scene after Gaby grills Landon with questions—all of which he answers correctly.

 

From POWER PLAY:

 

“How did you know that?” I glanced past him. A slight movement outside the door had caught my eye, but no customers walked through.

 

“Told you we weren’t strangers.”

 

“You’re creeping me out. Seriously.” I thought I held the championship belt for scary stalker. At least I had a reason: Landon Taylor, my vote for sexiest man alive and hottest hockey player in the AHL. But there was no reason for him remember random facts about me. “I’m not—anything.”

 

“Or maybe you’re everything.”

 

“What?” My brain didn’t have the capacity to wrap itself around everything going on right now. My dad had a heart attack. My crush alludes to me being everything—whatever that means. Can’t think. Storage limit maxed out.

 

“I pay attention when it comes to you, Gaby.”

 

“But why?” Surreal couldn’t even begin to describe this moment.

 

“You were my first kiss.” After sprinkling that confusing seed in my head, Landon spun around and walked out. Through the front window, I watched him thread his fingers together behind his head and raise them toward the clouds in a stretch as he disappeared from my line of sight.

 

 

 

 

This is book # 2 in the Pilots Hockey series.  While this book can be read as a standalone, I always recommend to understand series books to read them in order.  This is a good series and deserves your complete understanding.
 
Gabriella AKA Gaby has been in love with Landon for as long as she can remember.  When he helps her with her father's heart attack, she starts to see maybe he cares for her also.  Can they learn to trust and maybe start something for the future?
 
Landon has had the hots for Gaby as long as he can remember.  They grew up right near each other and he has been attracted to her the whole time.  Every one seems to know it but Gaby.  Can he convince her he is serious?
 
As they get to know one another the fires start to have a slow burn.  I really like this book and how the characters get a feel for one another before they turn up the heat!  Such a sweet and romantic story.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Good Story and Characters
Unsportsmanlike Conduct: A Pilots Hockey Novel - Sophia Henry

Kristen is on a cruise her parents gave her upon graduation. She ends up on a Greek singles cruise. Kristen has cystic fibrosis , so she never thought she would find love as it wouldn’t be fair as she knew her life would be shorter than most people's. But Kristen always believed she should never let an opportunity pass her by. Then Kristen runs into Spiros - a boy from her childhood and who her parents think Kristen should marry. Kristen wants nothing to do with Spiros. Then Kristen Literally runs into Pavel/ Pasha . Pasha wants to keep everyone at arm's length as he had been abused in his past. So Pasha is a player but also on the Detroit Pilots hockey team. Pasha basically got any girl he wanted. Pasha ended up on the same cruise as Kristen and there is an instalove/lust but that does change. Pasha ends up acting as Kristen’s fake boyfriend so Spiros will stop stalking Kristen. But as Kristen and Pasha get to know each other things change for them both and they really start to care about each other. Pasha does heal and changes as he  had been a no relationship guy.

I really enjoyed this story. I hadn’t read the previous books so was a little confused for a couple of pages but that was okay . Once I got into the story a little I didn’t want to put it down. My heart went out to both Kristen and Pasha and rooted them on as if they were real so this is a nod to the author. I loved how Kristen and Pasha came together and grew to truly care for each other and I choked up a couple of times. While reading this. I truly enjoyed the characters and the ins and outs of this story. I recommend.
