About Two For Holding

I didn’t think I was missing anything. I had my son, a great career, and a home
that I’d made for both of us. One puck over the glass at a hockey game made me realize I wanted
more. The larger-than-life hockey player inserted himself into our world and I never wanted to let him

The thing is, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep him.

My home was on the ice, with a stick in my hand and a puck on my tape. It took one little boy
with a toothless smile and his spitfire mother to change all that. I wanted them to be my home
and I was willing to take all the penalties necessary to make it happen.

Now I just have to convince her that we can handle it all together.

Melding three lives into one isn’t as easy as it seems, especially with the traveling, the media,
and the insecurities. Savannah and Porter have to decide whether to use the breakaway to head to
the goal or take a seat on the bench.
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

Hamilton was spelled out across the back, right above his number. A grey C was on the front,
right above the left breast, and I knew right away it would fit me. Also in the bag was a matching
jersey, although quite a bit smaller, and I felt my heart pounding in my chest.
Porter Hamilton was surprising me at every turn.
Moving to my feet, I tugged off the sweatshirt I had on and pulled the jersey over my head. A slight
thrill went up my spine at the thought of wearing his name on my back. I turned to look at my
friends and held my arms out.
“How does it look?”
Holly gave me a thumb’s up while John nodded his head in approval.
“You’re a real hockey girlfriend now.”
I rolled my eyes and took my seat when our food and drinks showed up. I’d just finished off a
hotdog when a slew of skaters hit the ice for warm-ups. The crowd cheered like crazy and people
pushed towards the glass, trying to get the attention of their favorite players.
My eyes found number twenty-two almost immediately. He wasn’t wearing a helmet and his eyes were laser focused on the ice as he took several laps around the net. I watched his tall, powerful frame as he skated with purpose.
That man was sexy as hell.
Porter finally looked up from the ice and glanced over to where we were. A smile hit his face instantly
and he skated until he was standing at the glass in front of us, tapping on it with his stick. He pulled a
glove off one hand and crooked a finger at me.
I cleared my throat and stood from my seat. He flicked his fingers again, indicating I should turn, so
I did, allowing him to see his name and number on my back. When I faced him again, a look a pride
had overtaken his features.
He said something but it was so loud that I couldn’t hear what it was. I shook my head and gestured to
my ear, causing his grin to widen. He pointed to me and said it again, slower that time, making it easy
for me to read his lips.
“You’re so beautiful.”
My cheeks immediately blazed and I fought to keep from averting my eyes. “Thank you.”
Porter just grinned again and glanced behind me to where John was standing with a look of boyish
excitement on his face. The hockey player jerked his chin at him in greeting before giving me another
grin. He held his hand up in a wave, shoved the glove back on, and turned to skate back to his team.
“Wow.” Holly looked at me with wide eyes as I sat back down. “That boy has it bad.”
He wasn’t the only one.


Two For Holding is an absolutely great read! With each book in the 425 Madison series that's released I get another new to me author. Kay Gordon, is definitely going to be on my list of author's to read from now on.

If you are a sports romance fan, this is definitely a book for you. Savannah is a single mom, with a hockey loving young son, Logan. Porter is a hockey player and Logan's favorite player. When they meet (and the meeting..oh so sweet) Porter is instantly smitten (I love that word). I really love that Porter was the one that was totally head over heels. Its nice to see the guy falling hard first. Heck, Porter is just an all around stand up guy, with good friends and even an ex-wife that's nice and married to another player from the Titans. (The only thing that drives me nuts about sports novels is that you can't reference real teams, but they can still play for Lord Stanley)

Now I admit I don't know much about what goes on with sports groupies, or Puck Bunnies as they are called here, but I really liked how they worked out a relationship between a sports figure and a normal woman and the trials and tribulations that go along with it. In some ways, it reminded me of the relationship between Steelers' QB Big Ben and his wife, who was a nurse. Though I have to admit I've never heard much gossip about any of our hockey players in Pittsburgh.

I was totally in love with book from the start. Its one part reality and one part fairy tale and a really nice combination of two great tropes, sports romance and single parents. Logan is the sweetest little boy and he was really a character and not just a plot device.

If you are looking for a great quick read, this is definitely the book for you.
