Off the Ice, New Release from LP Dover
Justin may be rich and famous, but at his core he’s just a regular guy with a big heart who loves his family and friends. When a woman bumps into him at the airport and then offers him a ride to his ranch, she treats him like a regular guy. The idea of her not knowing about his fame really appeals to Justin, not to mention the fact that she’s smart, funny and beautiful. Meghan lives a simple life. Since her husband died while on active duty, leaving her with an infant daughter, her focus has been on making a good life for herself and Ellie for the past eight years. She’s ready to move on romantically, but she just hasn’t met the right man. Until Justin.
This book was such great fun to read! I easily fell in love with both of these characters, and the adorable Ellie, and was completely on board in seeing them get their happily ever after. They certainly had their challenges – living on opposite sides of the country, Justin's paparazzi lifestyle and Meghan's need for anonymity, and let’s not forget the evil Miranda. But there was such great chemistry that went far deeper than just the physical, and I knew there had to be a way for them to work things out. I enjoyed every step of their journey and was taken in by these endearing, authentic characters as their relationship developed. And having a child in the equation made for some special, poignant moments between Justin and Ellie. This book didn’t feel quite as polished as others from this author, but it wasn’t significant enough to detract from the story or interrupt its flow. This one has a wonderful balance of all the compelling elements of an excellent sports romance and I whole- heartedly recommend it.
