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.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, L.P. Dover, is a southern belle residing in North Carolina along with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she even began her literary journey she worked in Periodontics enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
Not only does she love to write, but she loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes, white water rafting, and you can’t forget the passion for singing. Her two number one fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime and those songs usually consist of Christmas carols.
Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written over twenty novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
My favorite things about LP Dover’s books is that she gets me attached and addicted to her characters before she throws their world into complete and utter chaos. The way her stories unfold I have no other option but to devour page after page to discover how things are going to turn out for characters I am consumed by.
Hard Stick was totally not the book I was expecting but I think I loved it even more because of that fact. It wasn’t a light hearted sports drama, I think I would put it strongly into a romantic suspense genre if asked.
Kristen has a crazy and dangerous past. One she desperately wants to escape but lives in terror of – she knows full well that eventually her ex-boyfriend work find her and hurt her. It’s why – no matter how much she feels for him – Kristen cannot start anything with Kellan. His life is just to public and she refuses to lost another person she cares about.
The journey these two take together is intense. I was completely drawn into their drama and heartache. I loved the moments that they surrender to their feelings and lust for one another. I couldn’t get enough of Kellan and how he wanted Kristen. It was fierce and passionate. I really enjoyed their romance!
Overall, my recommendation would be to definitely check Hard Stick out. It’s an excellent story and a hot hell romance!! Get your copy today!
