I wanted a little change from werewolves, vampires and teenage angst so picked up Breakaway by Deirdre Martin the eleventh (yes eleventh!) book in her New York Blades series. If you're looking for a nice straightforward romance with a touch of Irish humour then it's the book for you.
Rory started dating Erin when they were 14, but a year later his family moved to America although he continued to see Erin every summer for six years. Rory became the first Irish born man playing in the NHL for the New York Blades consequently, he didn't return to Ireland for two years. After waiting for him for two summers Erin gave Rory an ultimatum: either marry her as promised or end their relationship. Rory chose to end it leaving Erin utterly devastated. Two years later convinced he made the worst mistake of his life Rory returns to Ballycraig Ireland, and sets out to get Erin back.
Thanks to Nick Ayler for being my Rory. I did look at various real life hockey players but couldn't find anyone quite as gorgeous as Nick.
