    One thought on “Smoke Signals”

    1. A beautiful hockey romance with dark and gritty elements interweaved in story that’s heart achingly sweet, tender and full of love, compassion and hope with an absolutely perfect book boyfriend.What would you do if you’re all alone in this world, left in a foreign country without means to live and fearing being sent back to your home country because death would be the better option? Viktoriya “Tori” Dubrovskaya was sent to the US to become a ballerina and escape a hellish fate at the han [...]

    2. An ARC was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review I have one complaint about this book: It isn't longer! As a reader of the Portland Storm series and the Tulsa Thunderbirds first book, I am no stranger to hockey romance or the players in this book. I've encountered Razor before and I'm so happy to finally, really meet him. What happens when a hockey player is propositioned for sex in Sin City? He marries her, of course! Razor sees something in Tori and he is determined to [...]

    3. 2 STARSAh this happen every time when I can't wait for book I love hockey I'm really fan when it comes to hockey and hockey stories - even better!But thismething was missing for me.I loved Razor but I guess not enough to give better review.

    4. A person never knows how much they can endure until they are not given a choice. Will it be faced with strength and integrity? Will it cause a breakdown that is hard to recover from? Smoke Signals is a story of courage, hope and kindness. Viktoriya is at her lowest when she meets Ray. This girl is in a foreign country with no way to take care of herself. I cried because she truly was alone and didn't have anyone she could on but herself. A good person with no options, she is willing to degrade h [...]

    5. This is a beautiful story of love breaking through even the toughest shell!Tori is a Russian ballerina who has been forced to make some rather harsh choices due to circumstances somewhat beyond her control.Razor is a member of the Tulsa Thunderbirds who is usually boisterous and a general wiseguy.When the two of them meet, Tori just wants sex but Razor sees something in her and sets out to try and help her.I love Razor! I wasn't sure how I really felt about him since he is usually such a wiseguy [...]

    6. Smoke Signals takes us back to the Tulsa Thunderbirds Hockey Team. This is the second book of this spin off series from Gayle’s Portland Storm series. This book is also about a former Storm player, Ray “Razor” Chambers.Fans of the Storm series will be thrilled to see some of the players appear in this book. Razor is in Vegas for his best friend Babs wedding to Katie Weber. The night before the wedding, he is propositioned by Viktoriya, posing as a prostitute. Razor sees right through her g [...]

    7. This book is amazing. I love how Catherine Gayle is able to write a story that you feel like your living it. I love that she gives the characters a back story that fits with the story. She allows her characters to shine while keeping us up with the team just like it would in real life. I started the Portland Storm series because I got the first one free and fell in love with the series and Catherine Gayle as a writer. This books hits home about the darker sides of like but is still a nice light [...]

    8. Having received a free copy through ARC for my honest opinion of this book these are my thoughts A MUST READ HOCKEY ROMANCE! You never know where life will take you until your journey is forced upon you. I wanted to reach through the pages and help Tori myself but to have a big strong successful man help her was so riveting. Seeing Razor in this light makes ME LOVE HIM, and rethink my opinion of him as a butt head. Although I could have read Smoke Signals as a stand alone book I'm glad I didn't. [...]

    9. Another great story from Catherine Gayle. Razor meets Tori in Vegas while he's attending Babs & Katie's wedding. She propositions him on the casino floor & they take it up to his room. Once there he finds out he's her first John & proceeds to find out what's going on. Learning of her predicament he comes up with a solution, only this solution has a few problems on the way. One problem is Tori's past & the second is the U.S. Immigration. Can they get beyond both & realize that [...]

    10. A desperate woman. A man who can empathize. One impulsive decision.Viktoriya is a woman in need and she gets more than she bargained for when she propositions Ray "Razor" Chambers while they are in Vegas. Razor even surprises himself with his counter offer. Soon they find themselves visiting a chapel to give her a way to avoid deportation to Russia.Tori is so beat down with sadness, shame and self worth issues, not to even mention the physical and mental scars. But Razor sees something in her th [...]

    11. Smoke Signals, the second book in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series, is the story of Razor and Tori. Razor is in Las Vegas to participate in Babs and Katie's wedding. Razor and Tori's story is dark and deep and emotional, and I couldn't stop reading it. For readers sensitive to emotional issues surrounding sexual abuse, this book may not be for you. But, Catherine Gayle does a masterful job of weaving a dark and complicated childhood for Razor, making him singularly qualified to identify the root of [...]

    12. **An ARC was provided by the author for an honest review**Smoke Signals is the second book in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series and it is a raw and gritty tale that is also full of tenderness, understanding and hope. What happens when you go to Vegas for your best friends wedding? You get married, right?! Well, in the case of Ray "Razor" Chambers, that's exactly what happens! Razor encounters a woman that he realizes is in way over her head and part of what he notices is a woman who needs help and c [...]

    13. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Let me just start by saying that I have been hooked from the very start, way back when it was Eric and Dana (go read it!) and the books that have followed do not dissapoint. Ahhhhh I had no clue this book was gonna be about Razor I have adored his punk ass from the very start. I had no clue he had a caring bone in him, oh but he does and it might be the second biggest thing he has to offer. He is so understand with Tori and never gets discourag [...]

    14. It’s absolutely no secret that I love Catherine Gayle! And when she spun her Portland Storm into the Tulsa Thunderbirds? I didn’t hesitate to jump right in!! (And let’s be real – it’s just a continuation of the same fantastic stories!)Fans of the Portland Storm can’t miss this one either, because Catherine has done something GENIUS!! She opens the second book in this new series with the wedding of Babs and Katie!!! **SWOON**But it’s quick to jump into the action, and the tough subj [...]

    15. Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. So I just learned about Catherine Gayle and the Portland Storm series earlier this year when I met her at Dallas RT. I was fortunate enough to be the winner of her Portland Storm give away. I quickly devoured the whole series and continued to devour each book in her hockey series that she has released. I love all of them and Smoke Signals was no different. We meet Razor in the Portland storm series where he is mainly the arrogant friend of our fa [...]

    16. I received a free arc of Smoke Signals in exchange for an honest review I have enjoyed all Catherine Gayle's hockey romance stories. I think I've loved them since Babs accidentally stole all the readers hearts. While blushing dimpled Babs is perfectly wonderful my immediate thoughts were of his bad boy best friend Ray "Razor" Chambers. In meeting Ms. Gayle at RT in New Orleans I asked her about Razor she quickly told me he wasn't hero material. I am so glad she changed her mind.The Thunderbirds [...]

    17. if you looking for a story to get lost in all you have to do is click buy -Smoke signals sucks you in from the very first page until the very last. The story kicks off in Vegas on the eve of Jamie Babcock and Katie Webber wedding ( if you haven't read dropping gloves just do yourself a favor and read it, you'll thank me for it) although this book has appearances from characters from the Portland storm series you don't have to be up to speed to fall in love with this story, it totally stands on i [...]

    18. **I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**Smoke Signals is the 2nd installment of the Tulsa Thunderbirds series, which is a spin-off of the Portland Storm series. I have read, and loved, each book in both series and Smoke Signals is no exception!Razor has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I was thrilled to finally hear his story. Many parts of this book are dark and gritty but it’s also a beautiful story of redemption. While we’ve always known Razor as a loud mouth, opi [...]

    19. I received a free arc of Smoke Signals for an honest review.Smokes Signals features a former Portland Storm player Ray"Razor" Chambers. Razor meets Viktoriya "Tori" while in Las Vegas for Babs and Katie's wedding. He is propositioned by Viktoriya for sex. Razor however through his own personal experiences with his mother, knows that there is something more to the story than she is letting on.

    20. This book broke my heart a little for Tori, and Razor but I have to say, I loved how amazing Tallie is now that she has her feet underneath her!Tori has had a hellish life, had to make hellish decisions, and because of that, doesn't trust anyone or herself. Razor has watched his mom make hellish decisions and recognizes a piece of that in Tori. And just like that, the Razor we knew fades away and this deep, insightful, patient, loving, and supportive man takes his place. He may be one way with h [...]

    21. I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review this story blew me away it talks about real life issues and teaches you a lesson about how desperate times call for desperate measures We meet Tori and Razor in Vegas and we are quickly wrapped up in their journey this book touches sensible parts of the characters lives and you will definitely feel what they're feeling as you read! I really liked how they slowly fell in love it wasn't rushed and everything moved smoothly, and I forgot to mention [...]

    22. This is the second book in the author's 'Tulsa Thunderbirds' hockey series, which is a spin-off of her 'Portland Storm' hockey series.Even though this book deals with the heroine's dark and painful history of physical and sexual abuse, the overall story is one of love and respect for yourself and those you care for. I adored Ray (Razor) and Viktoriya (Tori) and their path towards their HEA. As an added bonus, the early scenes in the book take place at the wedding of Babs and Katie, beloved chara [...]

    23. Tori's character broke my heart. I cried for her a few times. I loved this book, despite the tear-inducing qualities lol It's really hard not to love Razor. Great story and I can't wait for Dima's book!

    24. I'm conflicted on how to rate this one. I almost DNF because the story was dragging. It was very repetitive and jumped from week to week instead of days so it was hard to dive into the story. I finished it though because there was something that just slightly intrigued me. Not sure what it was, maybe it's just because I loved the couple of books in the Portland Storm series I read or what, but I trucked on.I don't think Tori's sexual abuse/porn career was handled well. We get told a lot of what [...]

    25. I've been waiting for Razor's story since I started the Portland Storm series, wondering how in the world Gayle was going to turn him into a hero. And here she did it. Really well. She dealt with the sex abuse history of Tori really thoughtfully. Of course it's on a condensed time line, but still, she did address the aftereffects of her history.Also, I need an entire book of Tallie speaking Southern. Because she is hysterical.

    26. 3.5 dark stars. I'm not quite sure how to rate this book. It was easy to read, in a way, because it flowed well. But the content was sometimes really dark and unpleasant. It had sweet moments, but this is not a sweet love story. It wasn't sexy either - there was too much sexual trauma in her history for the intimate scenes to be sexy IMO. I liked the characters and it was well written. Just not my cup of tea.

    27. i dont even know where to start when it comes to what viktoriya went through and razor has been nothing but patient and i love how they both opened up with each other in the end!

    28. Smoke Signals is the second book in the Tulsa Thunderbirds series, a spinoff and companion series to Catherine Gayle's fantastic Portland Storm series. And like all of the books in these two series, this novel combines love, steamy romance, hockey, and real life issues that hit hard. I love hockey and I love novels about hockey. And I have no small amount of love for the attention to detail that Catherine puts into the hockey aspects of the book, making it not only absorbing for long-time fans l [...]
