“L. P. Dover did a great job with this book and if you know going into that it has more of a suspenseful love story, you might not be so surprised. I recommend this book. I couldn’t put it down.”—Wicked Love of Books
“I loved this book! A great romantic/suspenseful story with a HEA (and it also involved sports which is always a plus with me). I really liked the author’s style of writing.”—Rebel Spinster (five stars)
“Hard Stick may have been my first L. P. Dover novel, but it won’t be my last. I am so excited to see what’s next in the Breakaway series.”—A Novel Glimpse
Hard Stick (Breakaway #1) by L.P. Dover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
He carries a big stick. And he’s not afraid to use it.
Ain’t that the truth!!!! Oh boy, absolute best use of a hockey stick ever. It really got my blood pumping. But enough about my blood… let’s talk about Hard Stick.
I didn’t read the blurb because I saw who the author was. I said “gimme, gimme, gimme” and Naughty Book Blog complied. (Thanks Heather!) I have a huge love for L.P.’s MMA fighters which transitioned into a love for Jason and Aylee and well…next thing you know, I’m Armed and Dangerous. It’s safe to say, I’m a fan. But I was confused in the first few chapters because I didn’t read the blurb. FYI, reading the blurb will alleviate any forehead lines and unnecessary eye brow scrunching. Meh, too late for me.
Back to the task at hand, as a connoisseur of L.P. Dover books, I had no trouble offering up my time to lick covers and read pages. (Don’t tell me you wouldn’t consider licking the cover. You, my friend, are lying.) So I was pleasantly surprised by the twist of the tale but equally heartbroken by the catalyst. Yes, I cried. No, I am not ashamed. Maybe I’m still upset. 🙅
Heartbreak aside it moved quickly. I swear I just startew when I finished it but then I noticed the clock. I like it keeps moving. it’s a great way to start the series off with a bang. I am leaning towards B being the next story. But if he isn’t, don’t tell me- I will leave it a surprise by not reading the blurb. My only complaint and it’s teeny tiny is I didn’t get my chance with the stick. L.P. I really think writing me in and giving me the quirky weirdo neighbor will work. Just make sure I get stick time! (smirking gleefully)
So here’s what you missed in my rambling:
– drama and an exit
– working in a bar surrounded by hot horny hockey players
– possible attraction but, yeah, honey ain’t interested…
– well not really interested…
– no, not at all
– what time is our date?
You had to know. The book end right there. No date, nothing…
Okay, I’m teasing. But you knew I don’t give spoilers so what are you waiting for, one click it now. While we wait for L.P. to write me in, you have plenty of time to catch up on her other reads. Please promise to message me what you think of the twins. I will be waiting.
