RELEASE BLITZ/REVIEW - Blocked by L.P. Dover




Title: Blocked
A Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance
Publisher: Random House/Loveswept
Release Date: October 31, 2017



Blurb

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.

Excerpt

Heart pounding, I stared him down, waiting for him to take the shot. The second he drew back his stick, I got into position, only for him to hit me right between the eyes with his glove. For a split second I lost my focus, and he slapped the puck right between my legs.

“Motherfucker,” I growled, glaring down at the glove on the ice and the puck in the goal. The worthless cunt actually had the audacity to throw his glove at my face. Kellan burst out laughing and the whole rink echoed as they cheered at my expense. Red just fucked up big time. 

The others tried their luck to no avail, and then Red was back at it. I waited for him to throw the other glove, but instead, he turned and sprayed ice right up into my face, his body colliding with mine. During our fall, he hit the puck right into the goal. Rage coursed through my veins and all I could see was red . . . literally. Getting up quickly, he started back toward the others and I slid out my stick, hooking it around his ankle. I jerked him back and he fell. If he wanted to play dirty, I’d show him how dirty I could be. He tried to get up, but I pushed him back down, tossing my mask and gloves onto the ice. The others shouted and skated toward us, but I wasn’t letting Red get away with making me out to be a fool. 

“Think you’re hot shit now, huh?” I spat, grabbing him by the jersey. He was smaller than me, so it wasn’t hard to flip him over and rip off his mask. Blinded by rage, I pulled my fist back, only to stop cold in my tracks. I stared at the face behind the mask, completely transfixed.

The person lying on the ice wasn’t Justin’s brother. It was a woman, and not just any woman. She was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. Before any words could escape my lips, Justin tackled me to the ice and my breath whooshed out of my lungs as we slid to the wall. 

“What the fuck is your problem? That’s my sister,” he shouted angrily. Eyes darkening, he slammed my shoulders against the wall. 

Catching my breath, I looked up at him and held up my hands. “I didn’t know it was a female. I wouldn’t have touched her if I’d known.” Under most circumstances, I’d have punched him and been done, but I felt like a tool. 

His nostrils flared. “You’re such a prick.” 

“Justin,” his sister called out. We both looked over at her as Kellan and the other two guys helped her up. They all stared daggers at me, including her. “Let’s go.” 

Justin pushed off of me and skated over to her. I got one last look at her angelic face and emerald green eyes before she turned around and disappeared off the ice.

As the goal tender for the Charlotte Strikers, he is able to get most of his aggression out on the ice but there are times that his anger and temper gt the best of him. Hot and tough...he can get any woman he wants and there has never really been a woman that twists him up.

Callie's brother, Justin is new to the Strikers team and Callie loves to watch him and his teammates play the game. She is just not interested in playing Dallas's game. Dallas will stop at nothing, including some clearly funny and embarrassing moments to prove that he has or is changing. Will Callie learn to trust herself with him and will she learn to trust him?

Plenty of steam, laughs and love to go around in this one.

On the Way to You by Kandi Steiner

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: November 16th, 2017

Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry with Perrywinkle Photography

 
What makes you happy?
That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.
And then, I got in his car.
It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.
We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers.
One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.
Discovering his journal changed everything.
I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.
I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.
Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

AUDIBLE BLITZ - The Learning Hours by Sara Ney

He’s not a douchebag;
but that doesn’t stop his friends from
turning him into one.

 

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID. So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters: Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry? Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551 The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one. THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT. One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.   However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up—they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME. Especially her.

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair. He’s slouching, hunched over his table. Defeated. Tired. My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him. Just watching. For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading. Learning. “Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air. I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument. Twenty feet. Fifteen. Eight. Two. “Hi.” No reply. “Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out. He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.” “Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance. Shrugs. “Free country.” I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike...

AUDIBLE REVIEW



"The Best Douchebag Story so far - Must Read!"
Overall
Performance
Story
When I found out that this book was going to be an audible, I was so excited! And they Sara Ney blew it out of the water with her narrators ~ Muffy Newtown & Josh Goodman! I love these two together and they both do an amazing job bringing this book to life. 


NARRATOR REVIEW 
I love Muffy's man voice and how animated she is with every part of this book. 
I love Josh's smooth voice and the cadence of his voice that makes him narrating this book so enjoyable. 



I look forward to listening to more books with these two narrators in the future and the rest of this series.



BOOK REVIEW
I am not sure what it is about the concept of dating a douchebag, but I knew I had to read this series. I have been hooked since the very first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Each of these can absolutely be read as a standalone and each one deals with a different kind of douchebag.



From the moment I got to meet the newest member of the wresting team I just knew this was going to be my favorite. Between his room/teammates trying to teach him a few lessons in complete college fashion....complete with signs to help him get laid. I couldn't help feeling bad for the guy and they way he handles all that gets throw his way is nothing short of fantastic. I fell hard for this socially awkward wrestler that can't seem to get his teammates to lay off, but it works to his to his advantage.



When the texts start rolling in all the fun starts and you get a front row seat to see how he meets his girl and how things change along the way and how completely clueless he is to the opposite sex. It is so very swoon worthy that I couldn't put this book down.



If you haven't read this series, then this one is a great one to start with AND...the entire series is on audible.

He calls himself Spider.
I just know him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate places next to me on the airplane.
I didn’t who he really was . . . future rock star . . . my stepbrother.
He kissed me because he thought he’d never see me again. He would.
Everyone warned me about him.
They told me he was careless and ruthless and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.
Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.
They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.
He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…

Review Blitz - CUFFED by K.Bromberg

    

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them. 


“I hate you. I never want to see you again.” Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past. But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it. What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right? *** I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves. That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up. Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story. I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

5 Sexy Heels


Cuffed is the first book in a new series by K. Bromberg...and she brings it once again with this series.
Everyday heroes are often unsung and never really given their due. The beauty is that they are able to be heroes and peacemakers and protectors while doing a job that they love.

This is the case with Grant Malone. He was raised by a cop and has always felt the need to protect others his entire life...especially those he loves and cares about. When he was 8 years old he broke a promise to a beloved best friend, Emmy and has spent most of his life regretting that action as much as he realizes that it had to be done. He lost the one person he loved most other than his family and although 20 years have gone by, he has not ever forgotten her. He remains a player and doesn't have long term relationships. His only goal is to serve and protect.

Emerson Reeves has spent her life living on the edge, jumping from planes, anything to leave the past behind. She decides that maybe she is ready to put down roots, but then Grant Malone comes back into her life. She can never forgive him for betraying her when she was a child. She can never learn to trust again. Why is it then, that she can't seem to stay away from him?

There is difficult subject matter that K. Bromberg deals with beautifully both in the book as well as the afterword, which had me clutching my chest and crying for her and her friend. Can we learn to forgive those who betray us so they can save us? K. Bromberg answers that question while bringing us everything that is beautiful, loving and steamy.
