✪ Off The Ice (A Breakaway Novel) ✪ LP Dover ✪ Release Blitz ✪


He’s always made the scoring plays, both on and off the ice, but this time he has a new goal … the one for Meghan’s heart.

I’m Justin Davis, all-star center for the Charlotte Strikers. For years, I chased the spotlight, not only with hockey, but through television as well. That’s why I decided to play the bachelor on Rich and Single. Unfortunately, I was stuck with a fake fiancée from hell who I couldn’t stand to be around. Now that our contract is up, I’m allowed to do whatever I want, with whoever I want. I plan to take full advantage of my newfound freedom.

After being on the show, people don’t recognize me for hockey anymore, even with just winning the Stanley Cup for my team. That’s why I’m spending the off season in a remote cabin in Wyoming where the chances of people knowing me are slim. Space is what I need, but when a down to earth beauty needs help on her ranch, I can’t resist. Meghan Taylor is exactly what I’ve been looking for, even though I’m not the kind of man she wants.

Getting her to see the real me has its challenges, but the more time I spend with her, the easier it is for her to see that I’m not the same guy she knows from TV. Being away from the media is one thing, but as soon as I’m back in the spotlight, I’m afraid it’ll change what we have. I don’t want to lose her, but I also can’t hide away in Wyoming forever. It’s a choice I’m not ready to make.

ARC received for an honest review

I am both a Breakaway series and an LP Dover virgin, however she had me at "hockey".

I wasn't sure how I was going to go, coming in late to a series, however I should not have worried as with exception of some of the other's relationships, I could read this as a stand alone.

You know what I really liked about this one?  It wasn't about the game as much as about the man.  Justin was just all kinds of swoonworthy from the minute I met him, an I just needed him to find a good woman.

And that is what he finds - quite by accident too.

Meghan is just what Justin needs, and I couldn't help but cheer for them to make it.  I loved that there wasn't any real OTT drama, that they didn't do the not talking thing, believing others thing. Sure, they have their problems, but they - gasp - sort them out like adults!

There is a little scene stealer that wormed their way into my heart too, I can't wait for you to meet them/it/I don't want to give it away!

Off The Ice was just... cute and sweet and tender.  I am a huge fan of hockey book, however this was just different, and I liked it.

I am always late to the party, so trust me to come in just as the series is ending lol.  However Justin and Meghan's story has gotten me interested in the rest of the series, so I will be going back and reading the earlier books.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.

She loves to write, but she also loves to play golf, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.

Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novels It Must’ve Been the Mistletoe and Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
