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.
Tired of being the second-best Babcock, Levi “501” Babcock is ready to outshine his older brother. Outranking his brother proves harder than he imagined—until he meets a sinfully sexy gold-medal-winning figure skater. She might be the prize he’s been searching for all along.
Bubbly and spirited Cadence Johnson is determined to escape the shackles of her former partner. Moving to Portland gives her the fresh start she’s craved, but the last thing she can afford is a distraction like Levi Babcock.
When Cadence’s past comes back to threaten her and her life is on the line, Levi might be the safety net she never realized she needed. But will Levi still care about Losing an Edge to his biggest rival, or can he finally step out of his brother’s shadow to become the hero in his own game?

I Fell In Love With Levi
Worth the wait! I absolutely love the Portland Storm series and have read it twice; "Losing An Edge" is Levi (501) book. Having read the series, what is not to love about a Babcock boy but having 501's thoughts and feeling makes it even more real. I feel like I know the family even more after reading this book. Add in Cadence (Johny or Cam little sister) makes this series and this book come even more together as a family. Once I finished the book I wanted to read it again. Like a good movie you want to watch more than once. As an avid reader this book will be added to my list of books to reread again soon. Reading "Losing an Edge" I could feel the want and need of Levi's emotions through Catherine's writing. She has a way of portraying her characters in a way in which I feel like I am experiencing what they are. I can see the story playing out as if I were watching it on a screen. I recommend this book. It can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend the series. You will fall in love with the Storm players!
Levi totally stole my heart
I've always had a soft spot for Keith, Cam & Jamie but now I'm definitely going at add Levi to my list. Levi is such a sweetheart and I love how he shows Cadence his romantic side with the gift he gave her for Valentine's Day. These Portland Storm guys get a A+ in the romantic department for sure but also for the way they treat each other as family and are always there to support & help one another. This story like all the other stories takes you on a emotional journey and you deal with some tough issues that happens here in the real world but then it also gives you a love story that you'll remember for a life time. I've enjoyed every single one of these books and I look forward to the rest.
Another wonderful read by Catherine Gayle
*I received a free Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my honest thoughts/opinions of the author's book.*
I am a huge fan of Catherine Gayle's hockey series (Portland Storm & Tulsa Thunderbirds) and 'Losing an Edge' was the book that I have been impatiently waiting for in this series! I recommend this book - it has the wonderful romance and teammate camaraderie that the Portland Storm and Catherine Gayle is known for.
In this story, Catherine focuses on Levi Babcock, younger brother of the oh-so-perfect, hockey phenom Jamie Babcock. Levi falls for Cadence Johnson. She is Canada's darling, gold-medal figure skater, who also happens to be Cam Johnson's baby sister. When Cadence's past problems return, Levi has the chance to become the hero for her instead of feeling like he is just living under his brother's shadow.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and reading Levi's story. Both Levi and Cadence are lovable characters with their own human flaws that only makes their love even stronger. Catherine writes wonderful stories about great characters that become family. Catherine also included little teasers to future Portland Storm books, which keeps the reader engaged in this wonderful fictional team. The Portland Storm has become such an important part of my life - I really wish that the characters were real!
