An enjoyable hockey romance with suspense
Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

I love a hockey story with a heroine who really does not understand hockey but develops a love for the sport and an athlete. Kristen is hiding out, trying to lead a normal life. Kellan is finally looking for more than a one night stand. She tries to keep her distance, but Kellan does not give up and neither do her few friends. Going out for that one date changes her life again and Kristen hopes for an HEA. Together they face danger and a past that comes back to pull them apart. I was not prepared for the twist to this story but enjoyed it very much. I look forward to the next in this series.

I received a copy of this story from Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel
Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover Dover did it again! This is the second book by this amazing author I've had the pleasure of reading and I loved it. It also happened to b my first Hockey story. So, I wasn't sure what my feeling would be but she got it in the net. I love how this sports romance was more story then sports. I for one can't stand sports but I love when an author can make me like them for a story. This book and Author won't disappoint.

Hard Stick (Breakaway #1) by L.P. Dover
Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

 

  1. P. Dover scores with HARD STICK the first book in the Breakaway series. Charlotte Strikers’ enforcer, Kellan Carter, falls for bartender, Kristen Robinson. Kristen is reluctant to get involved with Kellan due to her daunting past.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.  It takes place in Boston and North Carolina.

 

HARD STICK was amazing.  The plot had a little of everything: mystery, drama, conspiracy, romance, hockey, tragedy, humor, and hope. 

 

The characters are well-developed and believable.  Kristen was a compelling heroine who had a misfortunate past.  She is strong and brave.  My heart went out to her.  She has some loyal and amazing friends.  I love Kellan.  He is the captain of the Charlotte Striker NHL team.  He is hardworking and determined.  He is protective and reliable.   He is creative when setting up his dates with Kristen.  The two have wonderful chemistry and make an outstanding couple.

 

Mitchell Blackwell makes a fascinating advisory.  He is power hungry and controlling.  He is a dangerous man who cannot be trusted. 

 

I enjoyed the story line.  It had a lot of substance and felt meaningful.  There were excellent twists.  HARD STICK is skillfully written.  It had a great pace that is tough to put down.  I enjoyed the epilogue.  It felt well concluded.  I am looking forward to Dallas Easton’s story in the next book in the series, BLOCKED.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Renewal
Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

Kristen has a sudden life changing incident occur.  She ends up living in another location with a new name.  She has had so much upheaval lately that nothing feels right.  Not until she meets someone who makes her feel safe and whole again.

 

Kellan has wanted Kristen to give him the time of day for some time.  He wants to show her he is no longer the type of guy she thinks he is.  He wants someone forever, not just a one night stand.

 

This story is sweet and sexy.  I found myself eagerly turning the pages!  I loved how charming and protective the leading man is.  The hot men that are in this series make me eager for the next installment to come.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Intended for Bristol: A Second Chances Novel - L.P. Dover

Jaxon was the star kicker for the Carolina Cougars.in the NFL. Jaxon had done some bad things to his teammates and was steadily working to be forgiven for. Jaxon is trying to change but it isn’t easy. Then the team gets a new quarterback  named Ryan. Jaxon  didn’t like Ryan right from the start . Then Jaxon decides to go after Ryan’s sister Bristol. Bristol is a good girl but had been burned before and knows what it’s like  to date a football player. Bristol feel there is something about Jaxon. Jaxon has pulled some pretty awful stunts on his teammates. Jaxon is a jerk for the most part in the beginning . Bristol had moved to Charlotte one year ago and works for M & M Architectural Design where she is an interior designer . Bristol had left Texas to leave her past and her cheating ex boyfriend - A NFL wide receiver for Dallas behind her. Jaxon has to show Bristol he no longer that bad boy player jerky guy. Jaxon has no desire to settle down. Jax and Bristol have crazy hot chemistry. Bristol is seeping into Jaxon’s heart. Bristol made Jaxon open his eyes.

I had mixed feelings about this story. Some things I liked and others not so much. It was a quick read. But somethings didn’t feel realistic to me. It was an insta- love/ lust and I didn’t like that. I didn’t care for the overall plot. I also found the story predictable. I did however choke up at times which is good as my emotions were involved. It irritated me that the football team seemed to hate each other instead of working together like a team is suppose to do.. There were some things that confused me at times. Bristol should have already known who Jaxon was since her brother Ryan was on the team. Also I think there was to much information that wasn’t needed shot in at odd times which interrupted the flow of the story for me. Also this was a little too busy for me to completely enjoy this story.I did like Bristol’s character and although I didn’t particularly like Jaxon at first after awhile …. As you can see and as I said somethings I liked and others I didn't.
