ARC Review: BREAKAWAY by A.M. Johnson

March 14, 2018

Breakaway by AM Johnson
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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mark Carmelo was the was the star center for Tampa Bay. Hockey was his life and after a very public heartbreak, he put all of his focus back into the game. But something was missing. A chance meeting in a bar leads him to Stevie West. Their instant chemistry was electric. They wanted each other. They were definitely feeling each other. She was married. Fast forward a year, her marriage is over, they bump into each other, and all bets are off. While hockey is still his life, he’s found hope and love with Stevie. Slowly but surely these two start to complete each other, to heal each other. Stevie was trying to find herself all over again and found Mark along the way. It was so sweet. Although there’s a seven-year age difference between them, there was never a time where it made a difference to this story. Breakaway was so sweetly romantic and A.M. Johnson’s writing of this story was almost poetic. It’s a second chance sports romance full of heart and heat with hockey as a backdrop.
