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 absolutely am in love with this book!! I’m always a fan of the change for you trope and this one was very well written! Dallas Easton is a cocky goaltender for the NHL and current champions of the Stanley Cup. Hunky and built, he can have any puck bunny he wants. When a little practice session goes awry and a player gets the best of Dallas, he tries to take the dude down. Only it wasn’t a dude! It was Callie Davis, a teammate’s sister, and clearly the hottest girl he’d ever seen! He makes it his mission to go after and get this girl no matter what!
Callie Davis is a ER nurse and lives with her hockey playing brothers. In order to be closer to them, she plays hockey and can hold her own on the ice! When bad boy Dallas makes it known that Callie is on his radar, she makes him jump hoops in order to get a date! Only Dallas is all to eager to comply! Callie’s defenses are breaking down little by little! Gosh does he have to be so gorgeous….
The way that L.P. Dover writes this, Dallas is changing his bad boy ways and he doesn’t even realize it. He’s not going to the bars with the guys after games, he’s not getting caught up in the crap of the puck bunnies-mostly because he just doesn’t want to. He would rather video chat with Callie. He’s got a reputation and Callie’s brothers are quick to make her aware they would take him out! It doesn’t help that Dallas’ agent thinks Callie is bad for his career! He meddles something awful just to pad his bottom line-despicable!
Overall, Blocked can be read as a standalone, although you will get characters from other books making a showing. I loved Callie and Dallas together and their chemistry is smoking hot! I loved all the hockey scenes and the bantering with the other guys! I definitely want to get my grubby hands on the next book as I want to know more about Maddox and Lacey!!! Well done!
