Book 15, Portland Storm
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle presents another novel in the emotional Portland Storm hockey romance series.
Portland Storm defenseman Cody “Harry” Williams owes his coach everything—especially for bailing him out of trouble in the past. It’s up to Cody to repay him by keeping his hands to himself around the coach’s sensual and mischievous daughter. All signs point to this task being easier said than done…
Up-and-coming fashion designer Dani Weber always gets what she wants—and she wants Cody Williams. Cody’s sexy, geeky-chic bowties and hard to get attitude only make her want him more, and Cody’s resistance is fading…fast.
One call is all it would take to land Cody on the trading block, ending their flirtation before it gains any traction. Cody is squarely in the Defensive Zone, but the only way for Cody and Dani to obtain what they really want is to go on the offensive—together.

This book is a sexy serious read with some kink. There isn't much but what there is was tastefully written and a pleasure to read.

Loved This Book!
Catherine Gayle's Portland Storm series is amazing! Defensive Zone (Portland Storm #10) looks at the flirtatious Dani Weber as she relentlessly pursues Cody "Harry" Williams, who is doing everything in his power to dodge Dani's advances as he promised his Coach (David Weber) that he would stay away from Coach's little girl. Dani is adamant that her father doesn't have a say in her love life, but Harry is holding on to more secrets that Dani has no idea about.
Who doesn't love the Weber family? I have read all of the Portland Storm books and the Weber family are such a delight. I'm so excited that they have been featured in so many other Portland Storm books and was excited to get to read Dani's story. However, a few pages in, it becomes very apparent that Dani is NOT Katie. At some point in the story, I nearly forgot that they were sisters because of their differences. It was very refreshing and wonderful to see things from her perspective. I wouldn't say that one needs to necessarily read the other Portland Storm books prior to reading this one, but I think it would be helpful.
I loved the story. I loved reading how the relationship between these two flourish throughout the novel. I loved a new, fresh perspective into the beloved Weber family. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the Portland Storm series.

Awesome book! Awesome series!!
Another great addition to the Portland Storm series. I always look forward to these books because we always get to revisit, even if only for a moment, the characters we love from the other books in this awesome series. This story like the others is full of love, humor, generosity, passion and the importance of family.
Dani & Cody (Dirty Harry) definitely do not have your typical love story. Theirs is one that is pretty rocky just getting off the ground considering Dani is only 20 and one of Cody's coach's daughters. Webs has warned Cody away from his daughter Dani because he knows Cody has a minor kinky side. (Professor OTK)-haha. He also just doesn't want this daughter to end up with a hockey player like his daughter Katie did. Cody does everything he can to thwart her advances and stay in the coach's good graces. This of course becomes impossible for him after a while since he has had the hots for her for some time despite being so much older.
At first I felt like Dani was a bit of a brat going after Cody for a mere fling, when he told her he could get traded if he was caught with her. But then it was clear she wanted much more from him than a kinky sexy fling. She wanted forever because she loved him. She redeemed herself with me with what she did for his father. Like Dani, I ended up falling in love with Cody and the two of them as a couple.
As always I look forward to future Storm books.
