Blog Tour: ON THE FLY by Catherine Gayle

Today, as part of the Light the Lamp Tour (#3 in the series), the focus is on the second in the series, ON THE FLY!

Injury after injury has put Brenden Campbell’s NHL career on hold for years. Now he’s playing for the Portland Storm and determined to make it stick. Few things in life drive him more than being told he can’t have something he wants, and what he wants most is to prove he belongs. Brenden also wants Rachel Shaw, the cute, little redhead who just got hired as the general manager’s new assistant. But then she went and made herself off-limits, telling him: “I don’t date.” Those three words pretty much guarantee that he’ll do everything he can to change her mind.

Rachel is changing things up on the fly for her family, moving them somewhere she can be the kind of mom her kids deserve. Allowing anyone else to be in their lives is out of the question, at least until her instincts get back on track. How else can she be sure who to steer the kids clear of? Right now she trusts no one, including herself, and especially not a man like Brenden Campbell. He’s way too handsome and a little bit cocky. Falling for a guy like him is a mistake she can’t afford to make twice.

You don't have to like hockey to like the hockey players in this novel. Brenden Campbell (aka Soupy from his last name) is great to look at and for some reason attracted to this petite red head who just isn't his type at all.  Is he for real?  Or is it that he just has to win at all costs, including her heart?  There are some touching scenes, some funny scenes, some sexy scenes - and wonderful story.  Consistent with a hockey context, the language and content is *adult* but well done.

I was enjoying it so much I stayed up late to finish it. It is the second in the series, but it also can easily be read as a stand alone.  That said, you will know how the first one ends, so I'd recommend you start with the first one so you get the whole story of Dana. Each of the books focuses on a single character, usually a hockey player; In LIGHT THE LAMP the focus is on Liam (see other blogs in this tour!). With the fourth in the series, DELAY OF GAME, to be released in August 2014, the focus shifts again.
