On the Fly by Catherine Gayle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
NHL player Brenden Campbell (aka Soupy) is determined to recuperate from recent injuries and keep a spot the Portland Storm. He also determined to get a date with his new neighbor and the Storm's latest hire as assistant to general manager, Rachel Shaw. Neither goal is going to be easy.
I enjoyed Brenden’s character. He is a good guy. He is very persistent, and an underdog whom you want to see succeed. He has felt a need to live up the expectations of his father’s hockey career instead of relaxing and playing his own game.
Rachel Shaw has had a tough life. She has never been able to rely on anyone for help. She is an overprotective single mom of two. It is understandable why she is reluctant to let others in. It’s a good thing that Brenden is persistent and knows what Rachel needs, especially since she doesn’t even know.
I was thrilled that Jamie Babcock is Soupy’s roommate. He is my favorite Storm character so it’s nice that he had a large role in this book. I actually read Taking A Shot (Portland Storm #2.5 - Jamie’s story) before On the Fly, so I was already bias. Jamie is impossible not to love.
On the Fly is a heartwarming book. The plot is well done. There were a lot of attention-grabbing things that happen throughout the novel that kept me engaged. The characters are well developed. The story is believable. It is an excellent contemporary sports romance. This is a series I will continue to eagerly read.
