While Texas is known for loving football, Lexi Stewart has always been drawn to the ice. Hockey is her passion, and she wants nothing more than to pursue a career in video editing for the home network of the Dallas Demons hockey team.

Lexi has an editing job for a corporate account, but it’s not fulfilling. Nor is her dating life, despite having the so-called help of The One Online Dating Service. Lexi knows there has to be more for her—on both fronts. She’s ready to take the next step, but it doesn't seem like it’s going to happen anytime soon.

Until a flying puck changes everything.

Niko Xenakis is the new Dallas Demons TV producer, and he’s looking to make his mark in his new role and hopefully work his way back to his hometown of Baltimore. But once he meets Lexi, he might just change his mind on what he wants for his future . . .

But the road to love is never easy, complicated by the fact that they both carry emotional baggage from the past in their hearts. Can these two “breakout”of the past to find love in the present?

BreakoutSometimes it feels like an author has written something JUST FOR YOU. So, with that thought in mind, thank you, Aven Ellis for knowing what sport I like, and how I like my romance!

Breakout by Aven Ellis goes behind the scenes of the Dallas Demons hockey team and right into the producer’s trailer. Not only does the hot new producer have an eye for team highlights, he has an eye for the woman who knows how to make those highlights shine! Who knew one tackle (the only football reference) would open doors to a new career and a new life filled with love and happiness for Lexi, a dyed in the wool hockey fan and freelance editor.

The day Niko saved Lexi from an errant puck at practice was the day Lexi gave up on online dating services and dared to take a chance on feeling something for a real, live, warm and caring man. End of story? Oh heavens no, we have three more quarter to play before the clock runs down and the buzzer sounds, because the road to happiness can be slippery and filled with pitfalls, misunderstandings and buxom blonde beauties who think they can charm Niko into submission. Is Lexi going to take this sitting on the bench or is she going to take the fight to the ice and beyond?

Aven Ellis has nailed so many dating pitfalls and given them a humorous spin, there were times I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry! Remember meeting the parents? For Niko, meeting Lexi’s parents was, to say the least a shock, because Lexi has been holding back from full disclosure. Shame on Lexi! Niko is beyond a catch, even with his own secret baggage! But leave it Aven Ellis to bring it altogether and give us a romance with her special spice and flare, from the pre-game highlights to the post-game wrap up.

Looking for romance that feels good? The kind that makes you smile as you see a few things you just might have done in your past? Lexi has spirit, she has attitude and she just has to bring to the table if she wants to hang on to Niko! And THIS is why I like to read!

I received an ARC edition from Aven Ellis in exchange for my honest review.
