Erin O'Brien was everyone's favorite in Ballycraig, while Rory Brady was the town's golden boy: the local lad who moved to America and became a professional hockey player. Rory promised to return to sweep Erin away to the life of her dreams in New York. But the bright lights and late nights turned his head and he never came back.

Two years later, Rory realizes he's made the worst mistake of his life. Heading back to Ballycraig, he's confident that all he needs to do is flash his winning smile and Erin will fall back into his arms. But Erin's moved on.

Racing the clock, Rory needs to prove to her that the man she fell in love with is still there. But can happy-go-lucky Erin risk it all and give another chance to the man who broke her heart?


It's been a while since I've read a book by Deirdre Martin. I only had two more left in the series and I don't think the author has plans for anymore books so....

Yep, lazy! 

I'm sorry to say that when I know the end is near, may it be for book series or TV series I just keep putting off reading or watching. It's a bitch on my DVR. 

Because of our new review themes this year for BCT I've been forcing myself to dive a little deeper into the mountain of books I own. Not to worry, I haven't even scratched the surface. 

Since book one I've loved the New York Blades. Each book got better and better, so I'm not sure what happened with this one. I don't know if I just waited so long in between books that I kind got myself out of the grove or if it wasn't her finest work. 

I'm not saying that it's terrible. It still has her humor that I love so much plus I liked the characters too. It was just that I was bored. 

That's it...bored. 

I wanted to like it so badly. It even had characters I enjoyed from past books. Still I couldn't really get into it. 

I'm going to blame the heat. Because I think it's more me then the book I'm going to try it again in the future. I think I owe it to Erin & Rory. 

If you've read Breakaway or any other book by Deirdre Martin I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
