    Awesome book and story by Catherine Gayle. This series is the first I've read by this author, and she outdid herself with this book. The story of Jamie and Katie is so sweet, heartfelt, and very lovingly written. The story has all of the elements of everything that makes us feel warm and fuzzy - love, family, friends, and hope. Great job Catherine. Thank you for giving us this wonderful story and for the great characters you've written about in the series. Every single one of them sound like someone we wish to have in our lives.

    Gosh, I've never loved a character more than Babs. So sweet, innocent- yet manly!! Gosh what a wonderful character and although the other novels of this series are excellent - this book is why I love to read. Beautiful. Wish it was a million pages.

    Catherine Gayle's Portland Storm series continues with the long-anticipated story of Jamie and Katie. Years have come and gone, yet Katie is still the only woman for Jamie. In this story, I fell even more in love with Jamie (Did not know that was even possible!) and got to understand Katie a little better. Though the wait for their story was torture, Catherine did NOT disappoint. Another bright spot in this story is all the cameos from old favorite characters. I'm one of those people that likes everything nice and uniformed, so I had bought the anthology editions of Catherine's series thinking that I would have a nice three-period book set, but I could not wait to read Babs' story! There are very few authors that I would break my organizational code for and Catherine is one of them!
  • My favorite so far...

    Loved this book!! Jamie & Katie's journey is one I fell in love with so much. I love how each book still has the other characters in it too. I can't wait for more books and see Levi's story

    The unsung character in this book is David Webber, his interaction with Jamie is priceless. I loved reading Jamie's story after falling a little in love with him over the course of all the previous books. I have no doubt we will learn of Jamie and Katie's happily ever after in the coming books.

    I've been waiting for this story about Babs and Katie since I read the very first book. It was always in the back of my mind as I made my way through the next ones, when will I get to hear Jamie and Katie's story? It is here, and was so worth the wait. I read it in an afternoon, and it was SO GOOD. I loved it all, every second of it. If it's possible, I also fell more in love with Babs and his dimples and adorableness. Catherine really did it this time.
  • Finally!!!

    OMG. If you have read even one book in this series to date you have completely fallen in love with Babs and this book does not disappoint in any area of what has been a long time coming. Jamie and Katie we're love at first sight and Katie left to pursue her dreams. She realizes that those dreams are a little flat without Jamie in them and she is back to fight for him and has another fight she has to take on along the way. Jamie is with her every step of the way (as if you could be him any more). Make sure the tissues are around when reading this book as they will be needed. Amazing book, awesome story and thank god at the ending.
  • Must read!!!!

    Babs and Katie!!!! The book we've all been waiting for, some of us less patiently than others, is finally here and it does NOT disappoint. Catherine Gayle took one of the sweetest teen love stories and did the unthinkable, she made it better! Both more mature and having lived through some tough situations and some even tougher choices, Babs and Katie are now better versions of themselves which means the only thing missing is each other. Flawlessly combining tough emotional moments, humor, sweet moments, and some steam Dropping Gloves is the story that Babs and Katie deserved from the very beginning.
