Synopsis: 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 received an ARC of the first book in this series for the Release Day Blitz and I was really looking forward to reading more books in this series! I received an ARC of this book before the first book though, so I had it sitting on my Kindle for a few weeks before I was able to read it because I wanted to read the first book first lol! I also didn't read the synopsis before starting this book, so I did go into it blind! I don't normally do this, but I did end up reading the synopsis when I was 25% into it to find out more information lol! After reading, I can say that I enjoyed this book, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book! I think it's because the first book had a bit of action and suspense in it, but this book didn't have any! I love action and suspense in the plot of any book, and this author's books normally have loads in them, so this book was missing that for me! There was plenty of romance in the plot though, and some seriously hot scenes that were really, really hot! I also loved the relationship development between the two main characters! The characters were also amazing and made this book better! Dallas was the main male character! Dallas was a secondary character in the first book in this series, so I was excited to read his story and find out more about him! I have to start by saying that Dallas was a bit of a womaniser in this book! He though he could get any woman he wanted and nobody was going to say no to him! He was soon brought down to size by this love interest though lol! Dallas changed a lot after he started developing feelings for his love interest! He stopped looking at other women and his love interest held all his attention! He was protective of her too and it was easy to see his feelings for her develop! Callie was the main female character and love interest of Dallas! Callie was very independent in this book and she tried to do everything by herself and not rely on anyone for anything! I did respect this about her, but it's okay to lean on someone for help every once in a while! I also loved the way that Callie didn't take any crap and she didn't fall in love with Dallas as soon as she met him! She made him wait and they let their relationship develop at a really good pace! I was really happy that this book was written from both Dallas and Callie's point of views! The synopsis made it sound like it was only going to be written from Dallas' point of view, but I'm really happy that Callie's was in there too! It helped me connect more with both characters and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I'm not sure whose book it's going to be, but I do have some ideas because of what happened in this book! I still can't wait to read the next book and I'll definitely be reading it when it releases! I hope it release soon and I don't have to wait ages for it too! The cover for this book is also seriously hot! It suits the book perfectly and I love how well it suits the cover for the first book too! The ice skates mean a lot in the book too! Big thank you to L.P. Dover, Loveswept, Netgalley and Give Me Books for an ARC of Blocked!
