Description

He’s got every reason to be cocky . . . until a female cuts him down to size.

I’m Dallas Easton, the best goaltender in the league. I make a damn good living playing hockey, and with women falling at my feet wherever I go, why not enjoy it? I get whatever I want, whenever I want—that is, until I come across the one player who gets the best of me on the ice.

When I try to pummel the dude, all hell breaks loose. Imagine my surprise when the helmet comes off to reveal a woman underneath. And not just any woman, but the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen. Callie Davis is the complete opposite of the puck bunnies I usually go for, a good girl with sick moves and a selfless streak a mile wide. I need to make amends, but she dodges me at every turn. It doesn’t help that Callie’s brother hates my guts, or that my agent thinks she’s bad for my career.

But I could care less what they think. I can’t let our little run-in on the ice be the end of our story. Because when I set my sights on something, I won’t rest until I score.

    BLOCKED is the second book in the Breakaway series about the Charlotte Strikers hockey team. Each book is a standalone, although all the characters are interconnected. L. P. Dover is one my favorite authors and I always enjoy everything she writes, especially, her hockey series. This is a sweet and heartwarming story about Dallas Easton, the goalie for the Strikers. He is a bad boy who enjoys playing hockey, drinking and being with a different woman every night. However, that all changes when he meets Callie, the sister of one of his teammates. Dallas grew on me as the story progressed. He has always been the type of guy who doesn't care about anyone but himself and he has a reputation as a bad boy with a volatile temper. However, once he meets Callie, everything changes. He only wants her and he isn't interested in anyone else. He has an uphill battle trying to convince Callie and her protective brothers he has changed. After growing up with three brothers Callie has learned to stand up for herself and she is also a good hockey player. She loves working as a nurse and is dedicated to her job. Callie is the first woman who hasn't fallen at Dallas’ feet. She makes him work for a chance to be with her. Dallas and Callie work well together and have a lot chemistry. I enjoyed all the secondary characters and can't wait to read more books in this series. I really enjoyed this fast paced, fun story. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Dallas is the best goalie in the NHL. He's also one of the biggest players to ever live. When he makes the absolute worst impression on Callie, he's pulling out all the stops to apologize. Callie has just moved to North Carolina with her brothers, one of which plays for the Strikers with Dallas. Callie realizes that Dallas isn't going to give up so easy so she decides to make his apologies into a fun game. The chemistry between Dallas and Callie was off the charts. The back and forth between them was absolutely hilarious. I loved the steady pace of the relationship and how nothing seemed to be a huge rush. Callie is a strong, independent woman who was ready to stand up to her overprotective brothers in order to move forward with Dallas. Dallas was super swoony. In the beginning I thought there was nothing that was going to tame the player but as soon as he felt like Callie might be different, he did everything he could to show her that there's more to him than the player everyone sees. This series is absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see what's up next for this team!! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*

    I really enjoyed this excellent book. A great sports romance with a little humor, some nice sexy times, and a great romance at it's core. Dallas Easton is one of the NHL's toughest goalies. He has no problem throwing down the gloves when he needs to and the jerk that's trying to show him up on the ice right now deserves it! Only it turns out that jerk is a woman and the sister of one of his teammates. When Callie Davis basically blows off all his attempts to apologize she really peaks his interest. No woman has ever turned him down before so changing her mind about him becomes a challenge he plans on winning! Definitely a book I recommend.

    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. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review by Netgalley and its publisher.

    L. P. Dover is back with her sexy hockey players in the steamy romance Blocked. Dallas Easton is a hot commodity on and off the ice. The best goaltender in the league, he knows he is good and he isn't ready to pass the puck… Still, when a player gets the best of him, he loses his cool and his reputation comes back to bite him. He didn’t know the dude he hit was a girl. And not just any girl. She was his angel. She was also the little sister and cousin of two of his teammates, who now had just another reason to hate his guts. She enthralled him. And won't let him make amends. Callie Davis knows all about the gorgeous goalie that knocked her down. He is a womanizer and she'd be just another notch on his belt if she let him. Except he is determined to prove he can be different with her. With her family and his agent against Easton turning a new leaf, it is hard to show Callie just how much she means to him. But he won't give up. She is not only what he wants. She is what he needs. Callie is willing to give Easton a chance, but she won't be played. If he hurts her, there will be a world of pain heading his way. But the truth is that she will break too. Blocked is a sexy romance with a hot hockey player, his perfect match, lots of fun banter, some trashy gossip rags, betrayal, loyal friends and a HEA.
