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.

2.5 and would have been a 4 if not for the author saying that the hero had been a manwhore after his divorce. I’m not going to apologize for being harsh on this. I’m tired of this lame-ass characterization of male athletes. It’s lazy and tiresome. Especially since Porter was with the same woman for years and years without being promiscuous, but suddenly he has to be with puck bunnies the minute they break up? Honestly, it didn’t even really make sense in the story. It was a brief mention that di ...more

This was my first book by Kay Gordon as well as my first book in the 425 Madison Series, and I have to say that I am pleased on both counts. This book was charming and sweet while sexy and hot. I really liked Savannah and Porter but my heart was stolen by Logan.

Savannah is a single mother doing the best she can raising her five year old son, Logan. She works full time as a nurse in Labor and Delivery, which means her hours are sometimes crazy but thankfully she has some great friends that love

“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans” and the term “ Expect the unexpected “ should be the tag line for this book. I fell in love with this sweet story. This isn’t the great American Novel and I am so happy about that. This is a little story that will melt your heart. The author takes everyday situations and brings a realness to them with a bit of salt and sweet.
I don’t do spoilers it’s not fair to the author. I tell you my feelings on how the story affected me with just a

Two For Holding is the fourth stand-alone novel in the 425 Madison series. It follows the story of Porter, a famous hockey player and Savannah, a single mom who is a nurse. What I really liked about this book is how Porter tried to pursuit Savannah because it didn't make him seem creepy or stalker-ish and how much Savannah loved her son. She is the kind of mother that would do anything for him and I loved her for that. Savannah's son is a big hockey fan and after a series of incidents, the adult ...more

Savannah was thrilled that a patient had given her tickets to the Titans hockey game. They were her son's favorite team and Porter Harrison was his absolute favorite player. When Porter spots her son in the crowd and throws him a puck, she is overjoyed. When they run into each other a few days later, it feels like fate. Can a single mom trust in love and get used to being in the spotlight with a hockey star?

The 425 Madison series is awesome and Two for Holding was simply amazing! I loved how Sav

This is the fourth book in this awesome series, and is my favourite so far! Savannah is a single mom, and when she gets tickets for a hockey game, her little boy is overjoyed and the captain Porter is his idol. This is a beautifully written story which had me totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I look forward to reading more from this talented author, whose work I highly recommend for all readers.

Two For Holding is the fourth book in the 425 Madison series, and it’s another great read. We’re only four books in, and I already have some new authors I wish to find out more about. The same is true with Kay Gordon: after reading Two For Holding, I’m curious about the author’s other work.

I will be honest and say I was a wee bit tentative when I started Two For Holding. I’m not the biggest fan of instalove, and this felt a bit too close to instalove for my liking. However, the story was adorabl

Two for the Holding was a truly enjoyable read for me. I was smiling and page turning throughout most of the book. Kay Gordon is a new to me author and I loved her writing style.

The first meeting between Porter and Savannah wasn’t a meeting at all, more like a sighting. Porter sighting young Logan on the side of the ice ring and then Porter sighting his mom, Savannah. Something drew him to her.

Savannah had made her way as a single mom and hardworking nurse. When she meets Porter, she is reluctan

Ugh I am an emotional wreck. This book is so sweet. Porter and Savannah are wonderful together. Add a cute little boy, Logan, to the mix and I am a gooey mess.

Single mom, Savannah meets Hockey Player, Porter at a game she takes her little boy too. This book starts out adorable and just keeps my emotions high throughout. Logan makes me smile with his love of all things hockey.

Umm plan for some conflict that might make you tear up. Eek! Oh you will get some swoon worthy sexiness between Savannah

All of the books in the 425 Madison series have been enjoyable but this one so far has been my absolute favorite! I adored Porter and Savannah and who can forget little Logan. Oh my! This book had so many emotions. I laughed, cried and sighed. Oh so romantic. If you are looking for a quick, feel-good story, look no further. I highly recommend.

It was love at first read for me!! I absolutely fell in love with Porter from the get go. The way he saw Logan, and described how cute he was. I swear my ovaries exploded. I automatically got a sense of Porter's character, his genuineness, and sincerity. This was the first book of Kay Gordon's that I've read, and I loved her characters, and her writing style. Kay makes the characters come to life, she makes them real.

When her young son's love of hockey brings them into his life, Porter can't help but want to keep them there. The moment his eyes landed on them, on the other side of the glass, he was instantly drawn to them. The excitement beaming on the young boys face, and Savannah's demure presence drew him in like a moth to a flame. It was the strangest thing, never had a woman had this effect on him, one chance meeting and now she is all that he can think about, and the more he craves to see her again. He ...more

When you know you know right? Well for Porter he knew immediately. He knew immediately, he wanted to talk to the mom that was fierce over her young son.

But it all worked out and Savannah was suddenly dating a professional hockey player. The love between Logan and Porter made my heart melt.

Two for Holding scores a winning goal in my book. Gordon sneaks her way into hearts with the single mom and the hockey star. With one look, both know their lives have changed forever, but with the odds stacked against their burgeoning romance, how do they make it to the playoffs of love? 5 + stars.

I LOVED THIS BOOK - it was sexy, but not dirty. Porter is a divorced, lonely hockey player who sees Savannah and her son, from afar. He must meet this woman, her eyes were beautiful.

He does bump into her again, she is signing her son up for hockey lessons, and who shows up for some press work, but Porter Hamilton, captain and star of The Titans hockey team. He sees what she is doing, and immediately signs up to volunteer for the hockey school, provided he is on Logan's team. He is, and an insta

This book is one of those hidden gems in my opinion. I was expecting a book where they see each other and hit it off right away. With a great deal of hot steamy sexy times. That the hero was into having control. Well, he is but not the way I thought. What I got was something more. They have great chemistry and attraction. I also got heavy drama, I would recommend this to anyone!!

Omg I love a good hockey romance and this did not disappoint!
Porter and Savannah were perfect for each other the moment they met! The chemistry between these two burst from the pages. Porter was also amazing with Logan and always making sure he was included.

I appreciate the lack of female drama that sometimes comes with sports romances. No cheating accusations or any of that stuff. Instead we get a different view of what it is like being a hockey gf.

I found this to be an incredibly fast, fun read. It was the perfect fun, light book with a HEA just when I needed. Porter was just the perfect level of sweet, kind, motivated, and hot. In other words, the ideal unicorn. And he single-mindedly pursued Savannah, while including her son Logan. There wasn't any over-the-top drama and all of the intimacy seemed in sync with their characters. I w

A great hockey sports romance. Porter is the perfect book boyfriend with his many swoon-worthy moments and Sav with her fierce single momma independent ways. Add in Logan with all his cuteness, makes this a story you can't put down. A book I read in one sitting, and couldn't get enough of and enjoyed every bit of it.

Porter Hamilton is a successful , rich and handsome hockey player who is a big shot in the NHL. Porter is a lovely Hero and he falls hard and fast for Savannah. She is a bit more reticent I think but then she has a little boy and has to be thoughtful as to who is around him.
