The story is short and sweet and leans towards insta-love with emotions becoming entangled quite quickly. A great first-time, insta-love, sports romance! Now the narration for this was interesting.
The narrator had a new voice for every character and they differed so much! The Hockey team was made us of so many different accents, I felt like there was a Russian, Jamaican, American, and even possibly a little English and Kiwi in there. It makes for an entertaining listen! I must say the Librarian did kind of sound like a parrot which was a shock the first time I heard it. I loved the story and the narration made it unique. Thanks for reading! Jan 29, John-Torleif Harris rated it it was amazing.
I absolutely loved Sam and Jayden in this book. At first, I worried that Jayden was being a bit of a predator, but I was happy to see how skillfully Mr. Alexander was able to pivot that into a dominant, but caring, behavior. Jayden really showed a great strength of character in this book as he allowed Sam to work through his emotions and reactions. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. Feb 02, Linda rated it really liked it. Enjoyable story R. His intro came from an author I follow so I took the plunge and am happy that I did.
This was an enjoyable short story with engaging characters. Jocks and geeks. Definitely a spotlight on opposites attracting, although once they come out of their usual comfort zones they mesh very well. I especially liked the accepting camaraderie of Jayden's hockey team. It's refreshing to see the a normally portrayed homophobic group stand by their teammate and friend. Hopefully, this encompassing attitude will become the norm. And not just in books! I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

Good overcomes evil Such a sweet endearing story. Love the main characters but the sub characters really fill out the story showing what true love and true friendship should look like. This tale of opposites attracting each other with the difficulties of fear, inexperience and prejudice all being overcome and love winning the day. This is an easy read that is reasonably uncomplicated but emotionally provoking is a well worthwhile read. Feb 16, Mrs. V rated it really liked it. A geek and a jock, the geek tutors the hockey player, who's not the stereotypical jock, though Sparks fly and the story which developes is nice and funny and light, and it's a couple of hours of great entertainment I listened to the audio version.
Sam is stronger and more resilient that we would expect, just as Jayden is just a giant softie! Romeo Alexander is a new to me author, but I really appreciated his talent. New to me narrator who does a really good job with his characters voices. Jayden is an Ice hockey player who needs to bring up his grades, In comes Sam his tutor who turns out to be more. I really enjoyed the side characters especially Sam's sister and her son.
The team support was also done well, except for the 1 who was out to hurt Sam. Well written Edit Review.
Nov 23, Paul rated it did not like it Shelves: dull , avoid , jock-nerd , awful-m-m-romance , gay-gay-gay. While this trope, when done with flair and forethought, can provide interesting stories, sadly this isn't one of them. One day I might write a more detailed takedown of this book - sadly just not today! Feb 28, Angel rated it really liked it. I have to admit that I was surprised by this book. It definitely caught me off guard with the sincere emotions coming from the MC Jayden. Breakaway would definitely be even better with a dual point of view with Sam so we could see more of how everything affected him.
But nonetheless I would still recommend this as a good short read. Apr 16, Tom rated it it was amazing. Opposites do attract! I learned a few things in this book. A little bit about humanities course and how culture of various civilizations affect our current understanding of the human condition.stocisalper.cf

Jan 14, David Shuler rated it it was amazing. The young king of Macedonia, leader of the Greeks, overlord of Asia Minor and pharaoh of Egypt became 'great king' of Persia at the age of Over the next eight years, in his capacity as king, commander, politician, scholar and explorer, Alexander led his army a further 11, miles, founding over 70 cities and creating an empire that stretched across three continents and covered around two million square miles. The entire area from Greece in the west, north to the Danube, south into Egypt and as far to the east as the Indian Punjab, was linked together in a vast international network of trade and commerce.
This was united by a common Greek language and culture, while the king himself adopted foreign customs in order to rule his millions of ethnically diverse subjects. Alexander was acknowledged as a military genius who always led by example, although his belief in his own indestructibility meant he was often reckless with his own life and those of his soldiers.
