Off the Ice by L.P. 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.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
The way that Justin ended the relationship with his fake fiancée wasn't the smartest thing to do but you can understand his frustration with having to play a role in a drama he really regretted. What he didn't expect was his crazy pretend fiancée to start a smear campaign against him. When he meets Meghan and she doesn't recognize him, he's glad and intrigued.

Meghan knows who the stranger is she bumped into at the airport, but she pretends that she doesn't. She knows all about Justin Davis and the media circus that surrounds him. She thinks that he's cute and all, but she's not sure if he has substance more than drama.

Meghan soon realizes that the media is more speculation than reality and Justin is just a regular guy who doesn't mind helping her with chores around her farm. She's able to talk to him about her deceased husband and what she wants for her daughter.

Justin realizes that Meghan is becoming more important to him than a lot of things and he if needs to be traded to another NHL team to make this work, he's willing to do it.

I totally enjoyed this book and this series. I can't wait to read more from L.P. Dover.

This is the fourth book in the series, and it could be read as a standalone, but would be a richer experience if read in order. We have met Justin and his horrific fiancée in previous storylines.

Justin combined his star hockey qualities with a reality show and ended up stuck with a prize fiancée he did not want. Now that the year stipulated in the contract is up, he can end the farce and disappear during the off season. He even has a place bought and ready for him in the country. Deed done, he flees.

He is given a lift by Meghan, who pretends to not know who he is, as he is clearly uncomfortable, and she knows why! They strike up a friendship as they live on neighbouring ranches. Justin is keen to help her and spend time with her, which gives them a chance to get to know each other without the media circus that normally follows him around. This I really enjoyed. However, once he starts spending his money or promising meet-ups with other famous people to gain favour, I found it a little sad, and when he continued even when told not to, it started to veer towards uncomfortable. I probably am in the minority here, but it just seemed unnecessary. But overall, I found their romance to be genuine and fun.

I look forward to seeing the new family back in the hockey season and catching up with the rest of the team.

I’ve been looking forward to this book since finishing the last book in the series, it’s a fantastic end to a great hockey series! Justin Davis agreed to take his brothers-in-law’s place on a dating show and wound up being contractually tied to a horrid fiancée for a year. On the final day of said year, Justin bounces out pretty publicly and his fake fiancée doesn’t handle being embarrassed well. In the meantime, Justin heads to a secluded ranch he’s recently purchased in Wyoming where he immediately runs into Meghan. Meghan Taylor is a teacher, a mother, and owns a small ranch. She’s taken her daughter to spend the summer with her grandparents while Meghan is fixing up her ranch and she gets the surprise of a lifetime when she runs into one of her favorite professional hockey players, Justin Davis. The attraction is instant but Meghan is fully aware of the craziness that is surrounding Justin’s life and isn’t willing to let her daughter be dragged into that – so they set out to have a summer fling…

This book is humorous, intriguing, and I adored both of the main characters, their banter back and forth made this such a quick read. I love that though the books in this series are intertwined they’re also able to be read as a standalone easily. I’m sad to see this series end but excited to see what L.P. Dover releases next!
