A Breakaway Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

Sexy Hockey Players Are Back!
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.
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 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.
