Penny Connor is putting the pieces of her life back in logical order. At least that's the plan. Six months ago, her world imploded when she walked in on her fiancé with another woman. After calling off her wedding, she spent a week acting completely out of character in the Tuscan countryside with a scorchingly hot man. They didn't even exchange last names.Ethan Hartnell has grudgingly returned home. He's got an image to fix after being traded to the San Francisco Strikers, due to some questionable behavior. He plans to keep his nose to the ice, focusing on the career he loves. Everything is going according to plan, until he walks into a friend's bar and sees her. She'd left him in her bed in Italy, with a note, and run.Which is exactly what she does when they see each other again.It should be a sign.So why does he keep chasing her?
I enjoyed this book I just needed more substance and character/relationship development to really love it. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books
Breakout was an enjoyable enough book that I will check out the next books in the series. I loved the set up of this story; the way this couple met, and the way they bumped into each other not once but twice months later like fate was stepping in.
An accountant and a pro hockey player sounds like a bad joke starting but in all honesty I liked both Penny and her numbers brain and Ethan who was working on repairing his player image. What I didn’t like about this book was all the ex-drama and family drama from both sides, a scene here or there would have been fine but it just never let up and that time should have been devoted to us getting to know this couple better and them spending time really learning about each other. There was a lot and I do mean a lot of sex in this book and I’m all for a good sex scene but I need some meaningful conversations and quality time spent together before we get to the “I love you” stage.
