Coming back from a family emergency, he would rather be relaxed at his home in Manhattan Beach, California, and getting his head back into the hockey game. Instead, he’s stuck at the worst airport in all of America – Chicago’s infamous O’Hare. At least the company he’s keeping isn’t too bad to look at. He only needs to convince her there can be something more if she wants it – and if she doesn’t kill him first.
Sydney Walker hates weddings. And she really hates weddings that she’s the bridesmaid in.
Returning from her third wedding in a year where she has perfected the role of bridesmaid, Sydney only wants to get back home in San Francisco. A snowed-in flight and every hotel room booked to capacity, Sydney is forced to share a room with a gorgeous man from Southern California. She’s not necessarily worried about him making a move on her but rather, if she could keep her hands to herself.
Breakaway is a sensual New Adult romance series that deals with trust, long-distance relationships, and finding yourself again.
Dean is snowed in at Chicago airport on his way back to his Hockey team in LA. He had just buried his father and is recovering the loss of a much loved parent. Luckily in a city where hotel rooms have gone fast, his agent manages to book him a suite at a top end hotel.
Sydney is not so lucky. She's on her way home from her third wedding in a year. She can't afford the exorbitant prices of the only hotel in the city that still has room, not with her job in retail. But when she bumps in the gentleman that is Dean, one thing leads to the other and he offers her a room. At first this all kind of seemed a little too coincidental but when I thought about it, I thought it was possible to be caught in a snow storm, have your flight cancelled, end up in the only hotel with any rooms and have a hunk of a gentlemen off you his room. At least I hope if I was ever in Sydney's situation that I meet a man like Dean. LOL
Well, in any case, Sydney's luck turns because not only is Dean kind and generous, he is also a gentleman and doesn't make a pass at her or get all creepy. Sydney ends up hoping he'd actually make a pass at her.
The progression of the romance is gradual. There is no insta-love here although the two were attracted to each other. When they finally make it into bed together they do steam up the windows. The issue becomes about how they can handle a long-distance relationship. Can it possibly work between them? This story ends in a cliff-hanger of sorts and I'm curious to know how these two get on. This will be my first time of reading this author and I'm looking forward to more.
