[Review] Hard Stick by L.P. Dover


Title: Hard Stick
Series: Breakaway #1
Author: L.P. Dover
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 13, 2017


BOOK BLURB:

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. 


** Hard Stick is an action-packed romantic suspense. Just to warn you, the story line does NOT center around hockey. The main character plays but a lot of the book is set outside of the rink. **

MY REVIEW:
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

4.5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, and heartbreak.

This is Kristen and Kellan’s story. Kellan is the enforcer for the Charlotte Strikers. He thinks of himself as a regular guy. Kellan knows for the right woman he will settle down and enjoy some clean but naughty fun. Kristen just might be that woman. But once I get the date I have wanted for a while after one kiss she shuts him down. Kristen has secrets. If those secrets come out it might just be the end of everything she is building. She can’t allow herself to get attached to Kellan. When her past comes for her she might just have to leave. Kellan wants to know all her secrets. Can she trust him not only with her secrets but also with her heart? Will he protect her from her past?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.


I highly recommend this book.
