He’s always made the scoring plays, both on and off the ice, but this time he has a new goal … the one for Meghan’s heart.
I’m Justin Davis, all-star center for the Charlotte Strikers. For years, I chased the spotlight, not only with hockey, but through television as well. That’s why I decided to play the bachelor on Rich and Single. Unfortunately, I was stuck with a fake fiancée from hell who I couldn’t stand to be around. Now that our contract is up, I’m allowed to do whatever I want, with whoever I want. I plan to take full advantage of my newfound freedom.
After being on the show, people don’t recognize me for hockey anymore, even with just winning the Stanley Cup for my team. That’s why I’m spending the off season in a remote cabin in Wyoming where the chances of people knowing me are slim. Space is what I need, but when a down to earth beauty needs help on her ranch, I can’t resist. Meghan Taylor is exactly what I’ve been looking for, even though I’m not the kind of man she wants.
Getting her to see the real me has its challenges, but the more time I spend with her, the easier it is for her to see that I’m not the same guy she knows from TV. Being away from the media is one thing, but as soon as I’m back in the spotlight, I’m afraid it’ll change what we have. I don’t want to lose her, but I also can’t hide away in Wyoming forever. It’s a choice I’m not ready to make.
L. P. Dover
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.
Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
At one point and time Justin Davis wanted to be in the spotlight on the ice and off, but then when he found it starring as the bachelor on Rich and Single, he quickly realized being under the microscope of the media was not a fun place to be. It only brought him unnecessary drama and fiance he loathed. But unfortunately he was under contract, so he hung in their like a trooper, and the minute he could escape that miserable part of his life, he did it, and wound up creating an media uproar.
He had a plan all along though, finish the year strong on the ice, dump the drama and unwanted fiance, and escape to Wyoming for some R&R. He planned to spend the next few months alone on his new ranch, getting back to the peaceful life he use to live, but life had other plans for him. Ones that involved a beautiful single mom, who sees him for the man he is, and makes him want things he's never really thought were possible.
Off the Ice was a bittersweet read for me, on one hand I couldn't wait to dive in and spend quality time with Justin and the woman who captured his heart. But, on the other hand, I knew it would lead to the end of a wonderful literary journey for me, the Breakaway series is a favorite of mine, one I always look forward to revisiting. I must say this visit was just as amazing as the last, Ms. Dover once again wowed me with her heartfelt words, and left me dizzy with swoons from her uber sexy hockey playing hero. The moment my eyes landed on the first page, Ms. Dover's captivating words took over and and lead me to my literary happy place. I loved this pairing, they brought smiles, laughs, swoons, and loads of feeling to the pages, once I met them, I didn't want to leave them! I highly recommend you check this one out, it is certain to leave you thoroughly satisfied on all fronts!!
