It's live!



Novellas give us glimpses and slices of life of characters we love and probably wouldn’t get otherwise. I anticipate them giddily and I certainly savored Double Major.

I’ve enjoyed the Portland Storm series from the start. So this short in which everyone in their hockey family comes together, that gives us beautifully bright beginnings and some difficult and heartbreaking ones is just perfect.

There’s something for everyone because all the main characters from previous books get to star

4.5 STARS

Fans of Catherine Gayle’s Portland Storm series will no doubt love this latest novella, Double Major. In the middle of the off season, two players marry in a double ceremony. Along with the excitement of the wedding there are a lot of changes coming to the Portland Storm family and this book gives us a little insight into what is happening next.
This story is told from various points of view from characters we have spent time with bef

ANOTHER SWEEP FOR GAYLE!
While this book didn't have any hockey games, it was full of hockey players. Unlike the others, it was also relatively tame, almost (but definitely not) family oriented.
Which is to be expected, since the story revolves around weddings, and the beginnings of families. I loved it, from the bridal girls's night out, to the final I-do's, with all the adventures in between.

Merged review:

Double major was not only a story about two couples sharing a wedding day, but it also gave us updates or life changing moments for other members of the Portland Storm.

Dana & Eric - sharing a wedding day with Soupy & Rachel, as well as getting awesome news.

Nicky- who is book 6, finding support and love from the guys and realizing he needs to change his life around.

Babs- getting good news and double bad news all in one day, and making a commitment to Nicky and his team. He also had good a

Double Major
by Catherine Gayle
novella 4.5

Gayle’s fantastic short of second epilogues to books 1-4 fills fans in on some of the goings on between the team and their mates, all taking place within the timespan of one day. And with an economy of words she keeps fans in the know.

It’s the much awaited double wedding day of Rachel and Brenden (Book 2) and Eric (Zee) and Dana (Book 1). All the Portland Storm team, their wives, families and girlfriends are in attendance but not all the celebrating is ab

Double Major
Omg a double wedding!! I loved this novella we get to see all our favorites and see what they are up to and what they are getting up to. It’s a wonderful addition to the series.
Dana & Eric I loved getting to see them get there HEA, I was a little confused with some of it because I didn’t read book 2 or 3 and didn’t know that Brenden and Rachel were together or even getting married so that was news.
I have to say it was still great to see how everyone is doing and give some hints

This was a fun novella. I enjoyed the wedding(s) and catching up on a few of my favorite characters. There was one pretty surprising conflict introduced in this that I can't wait to get the full story on. I'm wondering how Ms. Gayle will weave that into a future book since the main characters have already had their story told.

Having only read the previous book in the series, I still was completely enamored with all the bits and pieces in this story
Ruth
This was a good way to update all the readers about what was going on with all the couples from the books so far, tie up some loose ends, and set the stage for the next set of books. By turns funny, sweet, maddening, and heart-breaking.

The one thing I didn't get was why would two professional hockey players schedule their weddings for draft day, knowing that it could affect their guests? And especially with Rachel being the GM's assistant? She should have been at draft day. Unrealistic drama.

I loved this novella! It was a perfect way to catch us up on the couples from the first four books. Every couple that was featured in those stories had a significant chunk of the screen time. Everything took place at the double wedding and Catherine Gayle beautifully intertwined everyone's stories and some surprises! I just really love this series!

A fabulous multi-story collective of various characters and their unwinding tales. Lots of love, a few ups and downs and family loyalty be it through blood or choice. Simply a fabulous series.

I read one other book that the story was told by multiple charaters. I really enjoyed that book. Double major is told by multiple charaters as well. In fact, it was told by the people. Those people are Portland Storm player and their wives or girlfriends.


I have loved reading about the lives of these hockey players from the previous five books. To have them all in the sixth, made it that more enjoyable. I could actually picture myself being that the double wedding that took place.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

So, the first thing I'm going to point out is that we get to hear things from the perspectives of all our favorite characters, some newer than others but all loved just the same(especially Babs). I loved that it wasn't just focused on two characters as it seems to fit this book the best. It's meant to be a sort of epilogue from the other books and I'm really glad that Catherine Gayle chose to write from different perspectives. I def

I have mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, I loved getting a another glimpse of all the characters I've grown to love, and they all got just enough face time that I was hooked all over again. We get to see how each couple (and a few other characters) have moved forward and grown, and it's a great look at their team dynamic off the ice.

The setting is the double wedding of Eric and Dana, and Brenden and Rachel, two perfect couples finally tying the knot. At the same time, Liam is worki

I have loved every book in the Portland Storm series and this one is a great addition to the series! It is a collection of epilogues to the first four books in the series, so we get to revisit some of our favorite couples. And the story lines are just as emotionally driven as ever, with real issues and with all the messiness that comes along with real life

The novella gets everyone back together, but this time it isn't for hockey. It is for a double wedding within the Portland Storm family. I lov

This was one of the short books in the series in which everyone in the hockey family comes together for a perfect book.
It is refreshing to feel the love and connection between the players and they extended families. Everyone tries to focus on the weddings of the day (Eric and Dana) and (Brenden and Rachel) but there is the wonder of what is happening at the NHL draft. Wow that was unexpected. How will the draft affect the team? Liam's worry about Noelle liking Sweden when she gets there and wha

Double Major by Catherine Gayle
Double Major is a must read for fans of the Portland Storm series! All of our favorite characters come together here and it is narrated from multiple POVs. I found this novella to be particularly emotional and I'll admit to shedding a few tears. It was great to revisit the characters from the first books and not just on the sidelines this time.

I continue to crave the full story of Babs and Katie but we get more sneak peeks here so I'll take what I can get!
