Blocked: A breakaway novel by L.P. Dover

Thank you to netgalley for providing me with a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Blocked-A Breakaway Novel-by L.P. Dover


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.


I liked the story overall. Some of the antics of the characters was a little childish but life and brothers are like that. Not quite sure I agreed with one of the trials Callie puts Dallas through or the fact that she jumps to believing the worst of him very fast but then again this happens in most stories you read as well as in life. People act on their emotions first rather than think through things logically. They are a cute couple it was worth it to see their transition from pre-relationship banter to actual relationship. Even Callie’s brother’s reactions and how protective they are of her are pretty true to life.
