Release Day Blitz, Review & Giveaway: Hard Stick [Breakaway 01] by L.P. Dover!

Publication date: 14th June 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: He carries a big stick. And he’s not afraid to use it.

On the ice, I’m Kellan Carter, powerhouse enforcer for the Charlotte Strikers. Off the ice, I’m just a regular guy. The last thing I want is to get mobbed by a bunch of groupies who are only after me for my fame and money. My ideal woman knows how to enjoy a little good, clean fun—and maybe some not-so-clean fun too. That’s the kind of girl I’d never let go.

When Kristen Robinson, the gorgeous, down-to-earth bartender I’ve been crushing on, agrees to let me take her out, I’m thrilled. We have an amazing night together, culminating in the most electrifying kiss of my life—and that’s it. Kristen tells me we can’t see each other again, but I know that kiss meant as much to her as it did to me. What I don’t know is that Kristen has a dangerous secret. . . .

I’ve proved to Kristen that she can trust me with her body and her heart. But when her past comes back to haunt her, I need to prove that she can trust me with her life. And I might have to get my hands dirty after all.

I've read almost all this author's books, and I've read all her contemporary books and loved them, so I'm always looking forward to a new release from her! I was really looking forward to read this book after I saw the cover and read the synopsis! The cover is hot and the synopsis really intrigued me! I then received an ARC for the Release Day Blitz and I made it my next read as soon as I did! I loved this book! The characters, especially the main female character, intrigued me very early on and the plot also developed at the perfect pace to keep me wanting to read on! The plot also had plenty of romance in it along with hot scenes and some sexual tension too! The plot had a bit of an action and suspense side to it too! The action and suspense did come to a big scene near the end and it did have me desperately flicking through the pages to find out what was going to happen next! There were also some twist and turns, and there was one particular twist that I really didn't see coming! It really shook things up! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Kristen was the main female character, and as I said above, she really intrigued me in this book! She did have a bit of a hard time in this book and she was looking over her shoulder and watching who she got involved with! This did make me feel sorry for her, but Kristen also came a long way in this book and she learned how to kick ass and become more confident and stand up for herself! I also connected with her all the way through this book and I loved the way she was with her love interest! She supported him with his career and she was always there cheering him on! Kellan was the main male character and love interest of Kristen! I loved Kellan a lot in this book! He was seriously hot and was a normal guy that just happened to be dragged into the action/suspense side of this book lol! I also admired him a lot for sticking by Kristen's side and supporting her! He was exactly what she needed and they both gave each other something that they were missing! It was also easy to see how deep Kellan's feelings for Kristen were in this book and he was very, very protective of her, which was understandable! I just loved Kellan and he was definitely book boyfriend material! I wasn't sure of this book was going to be written from both Kristen and Kellan's point of views after I read the synopsis! The synopsis sounded like it was going to be written from Kellan's point of view, but this author's other contemporary books are written from dual point of view, so I 'm really happy that this book was too! It allowed for more things to happen in the plot and it helped me connect more with both characters! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I already have an ARC of it, so I'm definitely going to be reading it soon! I know it's going to focus on new characters, but this has me even more excited to read it! I also love the cover for this book! It's seriously hot and definitely suits the book! The model is pretty damn hot too lol! Big thank you to L.P. Dover, Netgalley, and Loveswept for an ARC of Hard Stick!
