Release Blitz & Review - Playmaker - L.P. Dover

Title: Playmaker
A Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance

Publisher: Loveswept/Random House
Release Date: February 27, 2018


He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the

I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed
it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real
hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice,
breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell
not sitting on the bench.

When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse. Lucky for
me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so
much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want
to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy,
two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping
secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she
thinks I do and there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another
guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.

“And we’ll
be right back,” Maddox announced, grabbing my wrist.
He pulled
me away, and I went willingly with him. I glanced back at Braeden and he
started toward us, but I shook my head, stopping him midstep. Maddox turned the
corner, his eyes burning like fire.
“I thought
I could get through this, but I can’t. I’m so fucking tired of the lies. I know
who you are, Lacey.”
My heart
stopped. I pretended to be stupid. “Of course, you know who I am. Stop being
silly. We need to get back to the wedding.”
He stepped
closer, caging me against the wall, with his lips so close to mine. “No,” he
growled low. “I mean, I know who you are . . . Paige.” Keeping his eyes on
mine, he glided a hand down my bare back and reached inside my dress, circling
his fingers around my strawberry birthmark. My whole body broke out in chills.
“Did you seriously think I wouldn’t recognize you?”
“Took you
long enough,” I snapped.
“Oh, I knew
who you were right after you left me in Vegas.” My mouth dropped. “Yeah, that’s
right, sunshine. A well-paid private investigator can find out anything.”


“Second chance, 5 stars”

Once upon a time a man fell madly deeply in love with a woman only for her to up and leave. Ever since then Maddox has been hell bent on making the woman jealous in hopes of bringing her back. He tried finding her and failed until now. Now she’s right under his nose and he has a plan. Get back his woman, only its not as easy as that. Her brother hates him and he’s pretty sure another has eyes on her, but it won’t stop him. Once Maddox sets his sights on something there is no stopping him.
Lacey has been in love before but ditched the guy before he could ditch her. She knows how guys operate thanks to her brother. But maybe things are not what she thinks they are. Her life is crazy hectic and about to become even more crazy when Maddox slams back in. Will she let him in again or will fear paralyze her?
The love these two have for each other is undeniable from the get go. Its just a matter of taking the last step. You have people who will support them and others who will try and do everything to keep them apart. The odds were clearly stacked against them but Maddox didn’t care. In Playmaker you have love, hockey, and life. Its more of a story about getting over obstacles than one where they break up for something stupid only to get back together and I enjoyed that about Playmaker. You don’t need to read any of the other Breakaway Novels but I do recommend it and I cannot wait to see who else Dover writes about.
