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 go.

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.

My Thoughts…
Two for Holding is my favorite so far of the 425 Madison Series.   I believe it is because of the amazing hockey player (Go BLACKHAWKS) and the amazing mother with the sweet little boy.   Their meeting is exactly what I love to see when I watch a game.   The interaction between the players and the young fans is wonderful and Kay Gordon wrote it perfectly.    

Porter and Savannah didn’t take the easy route.   They struggled, they worked it out, and they talked about it all.   Especially Savannah’s wonderful son.   They discussed what was best for him, included him in their dates, and protected him as best they could from the realities of being part of a very public life.   I loved seeing Porter melt with the love he felt, the protectiveness come out, and his life forever change as he figured out how to become a family.    Savannah was wonderful at how she protected her son while allowing herself to become a woman again.   By being a woman again she became a better mother and a happier person.  

425 Madison is a place where love grows, where happiness is found, and where families flourish.  This unique series takes books by various authors and puts them in the same setting while bringing together amazing people, families, and friends.

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.
