As Tampa Bay's star center, Mark Carmelo's life was hockey, and after a bitter and public break up, all he wanted to do was focus on the game.
Until he saw her.
The one that got away.
The one he thought he'd never see again.
For thirteen years, Stevie West drowned in her lackluster life. Recently divorced from her “roommate” with passionless benefits, she was ready to start over. On her own.
Until she ran into him.
The same man she'd met one year ago.
The temptation that had finally given her the courage to find herself again.
When lightning strikes twice, there’s no way to deny the chemistry it creates.
But with both of them still nursing old wounds, Mark and Stevie will have to find a way around the other's defenses, a way to breakaway and score the one thing they never expected… love.
Breakaway, A Rule Book Novel, by A.M. Johnson was the first full-length book I read by this author and loved it. I am a huge fan of sport romances and second chance romance, so this was right up my alley!
Mark Carmelo is a star center for Tampa Bay’s hockey team and takes his role on the team very seriously. After a very public and bitter breakup, he is determined to focus on his game and put everything else to the side. I loved Mark. Though he was a very hot, sexy and famous hockey player, he was so caring and sweet.
Stevie West is recently divorced and finally out of a relationship that was going nowhere. She lost herself for the last few years and wants to start living again. She wants to find who she was and what she wants to be. She had a lot of insecurities about herself. She is a curvy woman and is not happy with her body. What I loved about her is that she seemed so real and honest. We could all be her and I just wanted to cheer her on!
When Mark and Stevie first meet it was not the right time, but when they meet again, could this finally be their chance? Mark is smitten by her and wants to see where they could go. He was just what she needed. He made her feel beautiful and cared for. I loved seeing their relationship blossom.
I really enjoyed Breakaway by A.M. Johnson, it had a little bit of everything. A touch of angst, hot off the pages chemistry, sweet romance and a great book boyfriend! It was a sweet romance that left me feeling happy and content.
