She had her future all planned...until she met him.
Struggling to live up to the high expectations of overprotective parents and a hefty family name, Caryn Stevens only wants one Summer of Fun before she focuses on finishing her college degree. She knows her destiny—to lead her dad’s multi-million dollar business. But that plan changes forever the day she runs into—literally—sexy and single professional hockey player, Andrew Chadwick.
Sparks instantly fly between the two, and Caryn can’t resist his charms as she discovers that Andrew has a reputation for winning—both on and off the ice. One of the most eligible singles in Toronto, Andrew could have any woman he wants, and he’s got Caryn in his sights. But, when Caryn’s parents disapprove of the match and threaten to disinherit her and his hockey team trades him to a new city, it may take more than love for the couple to survive this penalty play.
**This Piece of My Heart is the first book in the Clearing the Ice trilogy. Book 2, This Piece of My Soul, is out now! The trilogy is complete and concludes with This Piece of Our Being, also available now!**
This book had no real climax. I kept waiting and waiting for something to happen, but felt like the book was just a steady line with tiny blips for 1-2 chapters at a time until a problem resolved. Also, this book has some serious time jumping without much detail. If that bothers you, this probably isn’t your book.35
I was pleased with this book and for a change no graphic sex scenes, just enough. The characters well developed and the argument around school and sports55
By Robyn m. Ryan What a good story! If you make it through your parents disowning you then you can make it through anything! Bookbub55
Not as entertaining and exciting as the the summary makes the book seem.15
Couldn’t finish it! It just drug on and on...never got the climax of the story! :(15
Sweet story but wish there was more to the story without reading the 2 sequels.55
Caryn meets Andrew when they literally run into one another. The attraction is immediate, and mutual. Until he finds out about her dislike of athletes and that she is young & still in school. Andrew wants no more of the party days that are behind him. Caryn represents the future and all he could have, if they can just find that common ground that seems so elusive. Can he show her they have a shot? I really enjoyed this book. I found the characters and plot interesting and at a good pace. So glad there is more to this series, since this is a great start to another hockey series to sit on my shelf for a re-read. ***This copy was given in exchange for an honest review.45
I really enjoyed this book! For a fairly new author, she did a great job. It was very well written and edited. I loved the story, as I'm a huge hockey fan. I would have read it all in one sitting, but the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs were going on and I had to watch my St. Louis Blues play. The book was so good they it kept distracting me from the match though! Lol! So needless to say...loved the story! It really was a nice read and I'd recommend it for anyone. I can't wait to read the next book (and any future books) in this series. Robyn has just earned herself a new loyal fan! Keep up the great work!! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. And boy was it a great deal! Fantastic book!!!55
An excellent get away read for a vacation or rainy weekend. Caryn and Andrew struggle to find the balance between external forces (parents & NHL) and a relationship. Will love win? I suggest you find out!55
Great balanced book of a budding romance and the life of a pro athlete. Not too much sports-not too much romance. Very good light read. I could put it down & pick it up easily where I left off. Great characters. Does not waste time on chapters getting to know each character. She just jumps right into the story line. I will have a difficult time making it to the next release.55
