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?
I kindly received Breakout in exchange of an honest review by the author.
This time, our main characters are Lexi Stewart and Niko Xenakis. Lexi 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. Niko recently has moved to Dallas from Greektown (Baltimore) to be new Dallas Demons TV producer. The passion for hockey brings Lexi and Niko together. They first met at the ice rink at practice of the Dallas Demons and things are taking off from there ... 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 Lexi and Niko overcome their obstacles to find true love in the end?
How can I not love a book by Aven Ellis? Everytime I finish a book by Aven Ellis it is my new favourite of hers. Breakout is no exception. As I've gotten to know this lovable cast of hockey players, and their significant others, they have come to life for me. Harrison & Kylie (Waiting for Prince Harry, Dallas Demons #1), Nate & Kenley (The Definition of Icing, Dallas Demons #2), and now Lexi & Niko. Each of these stories are fantastic, but my absolute favorites is Lexi's and Niko's story! I absolutely cannot get enough of this series and I hope many more parts will follow.
Lexi is such an adorable character - I related to her in so many ways. As much as I loved her, I had a problem that I thought she totally overreacted in many situations. Nico was an amazing hero. Hard working, focussed, funny, smart, masculine and gentle at the same time. Not to forget: so damn HOT! The romance and sexy factor between Lexi and Niko where off the charts! The chemistry between them was undeniable.
The secondary characters from previous books in the series played a significant role in Lexi's and Niko's story. They are all like one huge family, and they feel as if they are my friends as well. I loved to be back with the characters I previously read about. I wanted to hug them all! I love this whole cast! Especially Cici, She made me out loud while I was sitting in the bus. A bit embarissing, but who cares! Casino night was definitively one of my favorite scenes!
I very enjoy a good sports / hockey romance, and the Dallas Demons Series is one that I would recommend to those of you who enjoy this genre. It is excellent! Not only because of the great characters you'll fall in love with, also Aven Ellis exceptional writing that draws you in as soon as you pick up one of her books.
