Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
This is the fourth book in the series, all based on residents of 425 Madison and I thoroughly enjoyed the previous three and looked forward to reading this one, too, especially as it centres around an ice hockey player. Confession time . . . . I had never watched an ice hockey match until about six months ago but I have to say that I’m now a fan, so that made this an even better read, as far as I’m concerned. However, I don’t think you have to be a fan to enjoy this story.
Savannah is a single Mum, with a delightful five year old son, Logan, who is an ice hockey fan. When she’s gifted tickets to take him to watch his first live game, she never anticipated how that would change their lives! Logan’s favourite player is the Titan’s Captain, Porter,and when he throws Logan a puck he’s ecstatic. However, a man grabs it and won’t give it to him. Savannah’s reaction makes Porter think about a Spitfire and that’s what he nicknamed her. He wants to know more about her and her son and this is a brilliant story of what happens and how their relationship develops.
The story has great characters, there’s plenty of twists and even a break up involved. It is a dilemma strewn romance as the media interest in the hockey star and those close to him are seriously detrimental to their possibly developing relationship, secrets especially when it impacts on both Savannah’s job and the safety of Logan. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have to add that I hope my team, the Sheffield Steelers, are as successful in the playoffs as Porter’s prove to be! I particularly like the epilogue which follows up the family more than a decade later – it is great to learn how things developed for them all!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
I didn’t think I was missing anything. I had my son, a great career, and a home that I’d made for both of us. One puck over the glass at a hockey game made me realize I wanted more. The larger-than-life hockey player inserted himself into our world and I never wanted to let him go.
The thing is, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep him.
My home was on the ice, with a stick in my hand and a puck on my tape. It took one little boy with a toothless smile and his spitfire mother to change all that. I wanted them to be my home and I was willing to take all the penalties necessary to make it happen.
Now I just have to convince her that we can handle it all together.
Melding three lives into one isn’t as easy as it seems, especially with the traveling, the media, and the insecurities. Savannah and Porter have to decide whether to use the breakaway to head to the goal or take a seat on the bench.
After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

Kay Gordon is a married, mother of two living near the west coast. She spends her days teaching young, impressionable minds in public school and evenings typing away furiously once her children are in bed. She loves to take her characters on a journey, making that happy ending even better!
Her favorite genre to read is Contemporary Romance but won’t hesitate to try anything with promise. One of her favorite past times is to read the book and then go see the movie while forcing her husband to listen to her point out all of the differences in real time. She’s still not over what Harry did to the Elder Wand in DH2.
When she’s not teaching or writing, Kay loves to spend time with her family and friends, although she doesn’t ever so no to a good nap. She’s an avid lover of hockey and can be seen cheering for her beloved Nashville Predators- no matter how much they frustrate her.
Kay always welcomes feedback and comments (or even just a healthy argument about why Backstreet Boys are better than *Nsync) so please don’t hesitate to reach out!
