THE BREAKUP PROJECT by Carolyn Miller, Reviewed by Kim

The Breakup Project by Carolyn Miller has everything I like in a contemporary romance! It merged one of my favorite tropes, friends to more, with a sports theme, our hero is a Nation Hockey League player, which I love! It is also the first of a 6 book series where all the hero’s play in the NHL and even better, all of the books come out this year!

I really liked both of the main characters in this story. Mike is so kind and has a heart of gold. I liked him immediately and my heart broke for him a couple of times during the story. Bree, while I really liked her, made some decisions that sort of frustrated me at times, but, for the most part I understood where she was coming from and everything worked out in the end.

I think my favorite part of this story was the faith thread. It was prominent and I loved how Ms. Miller wove it naturally into the story, especially the sermons.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is prominent.



BackCover Blurb:

New Year. New Resolution. New Romance?
What happens when the best-laid plans break a friendship?

As the twin sister of hockey’s hottest forward, romance-loving Bree Karlsson is used to being ignored, leading to a New Year’s resolution to not date any athlete in her attempt to find Mr. Right. But what happens when the man who might prove to be her personal Mr. Darcy is her brother’s hockey-playing best friend?

Mike Vaughan might be happy playing in Boston, but he’d be even happier if Bree could one day see him as more than a good friend. He agrees to help Bree with a special project in the hope she’ll finally see him as something more. But when a misunderstanding ends in a Valentine’s Day disaster, Bree realizes that her breakup project may have broken her friendship with Mike in two. Can she ever redeem her mistake?

This friends-to-more romance has plenty of heart, humor, and swoon-worthy kisses in this first book of the Original Six, a sweet, slightly sporty Christian contemporary romance series.
