Heat
Blocked: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

This is Book # 2, in the Breakaway series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Dallas is a Goal Tender for a hockey team.  He is also a hothead.  He is having a hard time adjusting to having to teach someone to be his backup.  Dallas is also incredibly attracted to Callie.

 

Callie is a nurse, who cannot seem to find a good man.  Her brother plays on the same team with Dallas.  He wants her to stay away from hockey players.  If only she could.  For some reason she is drawn to him.

 

This was an amazingly hot and sexy book!  Has lots of heat in many other ways too.  The characters just mesh so well.  I love this Breakaway series and I hope we get more stories.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Queries You Should Raise When You Talk to a Plumber Before Hiring

Hiring a company specializing in blocked drains in Sydney should be done with forethought. Sydney is a home to a number of plumbing companies. Although plumbing is a flourishing industry, it is not a guarantee that everyone in the business has the capacity to provide the highest standard of service.


Whether the plumbing repair you need is intended for your commercial establishment or your home, choosing a plumber is crucial. If the repair is not done well, blocked drains can cause you inconvenience. It can also bring damage to your property and furniture. What’s worse is that it can result in an accident. Blocked drains can bring about leaks and floods, making you at risk of slipping off the floor. To avoid all of these headaches, prudence is necessary when hiring a plumber. Take note of the following questions which you should ask the plumber before you let him fix your blocked drains.


Years in Service


Don’t hesitate to ask how long the plumber has been doing plumbing repairs. It is your right to gauge his competence. Seasoned plumbers have encountered plumbing issues from the simplest to the most complex. They basically know how to deal with every unique scenario. Experienced plumbers also get to finish the project faster. No time is wasted with people who are experts in their craft.


Insurance


Accidents are unavoidable when dealing with plumbing works. It’s important to know the plumber you will hire is covered with insurance as this also protects you and your property. Insurance is one of the biggest indicators that the company you are dealing with values not just its customers but also its employees.


Rate


Know how much you will be charged for the service. It is strongly advised to research on the price range of plumbing services before you contact a plumber. By knowing the standard rate for every plumbing work, you can tell if the plumber is going overboard. Make sure there will be no hidden charges. Ask about fees on new plumbing parts and emergency charges so you will not be caught by surprise when it is time to pay. Fixing blocked drains in Sydney can be done smoothly so long as you find a plumber with competence and the right attitude.

Blocked - Seanan McGuire

Blocked introduces the youngest of the Price siblings, Antimony. She's not yet had her own book, which made it somewhat more difficult to relate to her in such a short story.

She was mostly a teenager and the cryptids didn't feel like the most important part of the story. I am curious to see how her story develops though.

Blocked - Elise Faber

Blocked is the story of Brit. She is an amazing goalie who just got the chance of a lifetime... To play in the NHL for the San Francisco Gold. She has busted her ass her entire career to have a chance to play with the big boys. And well they are hockey players, so they are all big. :) (get your mind out of the gutter!) When management tries to force Brit and her hunky captain Stefan together for a publicity stunt things get a little complicated. Even more so when she actually starts to have actual feelings for him... Can she keep her walls up, and make management happy? Or will her efforts be blocked? 

 

It’s no secret that I am no stranger to the romance genre. And to be quite honest, it’s a little hit or miss as a whole. That is the great thing about Elise Faber... It’s a hole in one every time! Okay, I know that was not a hockey euphemism, but I never claimed to be good at sports, so... :)

 

This book was such a fun read! I read it in one night. I kept thinking to myself, “OK just one more chapter.” Then something would happen and I would tell myself that I couldn’t stop there! But I loved it! Blocked is such a great piece of writing that you cannot tear yourself away. There is a little something for everyone: joy, sadness, despair, hope, trials, good ole’ ass whoopin’ needed moments, screaming at the book moments, and my personal favorite... Not realizing that you are smiling while reading moments. You have to admire the way Elise Faber can break your heart, and make you laugh in the same sentence. 

I have been a fan of Elise’s since Sara sent me Phoenix Rising. After starting that series, I knew that I was hooked and would read anything Elise would dangle in front of me. And to this day, I have NEVER been disappointed. 

 

        Faber’s writing not only makes you feel like the characters are going to be joining you for Thanksgiving, but she also makes you genuinely feel for them... Whatever their plight may be. Her writing will make you want to strap on skates and take the ice with the team. Which I can tell you is not always a good idea in real life, and may or may not end up with a heating pad and some ibuprofen. :)

 All in all, I give book a 5 out of 5! 

 

Elise Faber has the story telling prowess of Scheherazade, and I cannot wait to see what tale she spins next. 

 

Happy Reading!
