When life hands both Decker and April lemons, it takes them both their own sweet time to start to make lemonade. But all that is about to change when Decker finally works up the nerve to say more than a few words to the woman that has held his attention for weeks. But what they don’t yet realize is just how similar their pasts are. Both wanting something more but not willing to risk the hurt it could cause to the loved ones in their lives, but love doesn’t happen at the perfect timing... it happ ...more

"He played every game, knew every trick, and saw through all sorts of bullshit yet never once had he come across a woman that was so brutally honest."

"I intend to ravish you like the starved man that I've become. Goddamn, April, the pleasure of having your sweetness convulse around me while my name tears from your throat, that's been MY fantasy."

Oh Decker, my sweet and sexy Decker. I was lucky enough to have been able to BETA this amazing book and it is one you must read!

Fun, sexy, and real relatable characters. This book was an experience to read. You feel every single emotion the author attempts to pull you through. The characters are well developed, the plot is refreshing and realistic, and Lisa N. Paul's sense of humor shines through the entire story. There were times I found myself giggling out loud.
The main characters (Decker and April) have both experienced the worst in relationships before they first meet. Their relationship grows and the sexual te

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review.
This book is a little different than my normal read, not a lot, but enough that it was a concern to a few that i would even like it.
The author carried it, owned it and made it something i would LOVE even when its outside my normal realm. I absolutely love this book.
Decker Brand and April Maddox have both been burned before, in different ways, but burned none the less. So you have 2 people that have come from past
What an absolutely fun and sexy read this was. Lisa N. Paul ("Paul") once again delivers a story of true romance that leaves you longing for more. There's none of the "insta-love" crap here. Instead, it's a well-written story of two people who begin a relationship that develops into love over a period of time. The sexual tension and heat that Decker and April have is off-the-charts sizzling hot. (Oh, how I loved Decker, a man who knows how to use his hands at work, and more importantly on a woma ...more

Lisa N Paul is a natural comedian who’s humor and sparkling personality comes through in her writing. Yes, Blocked is a sexy as shit romance but it’s also hilarious.

Our heroine April is a fighter who had some crappy guys in her life (namely her ex-bobble-head-loving-asshole-of-a husband), so when she meets sexy Decker at the gym, she’s all about taking it slow. She’s been through hell

Lisa N Paul does it again! I loved this book and let me tell you why. It is fun, flirty, funny and sexy. Decker and April are very relatable characters and I love them!

Let me start with Decker....he is sexy as hell and one of the most lovable characters I've had the pleasure of meeting. He has such a deep sense of loyalty and love that you can't help but want the best for him.

April isn't your typical character. She had to endure losing what she thought would be her forever at a very pivotal mo

Barricaded. Closed Off. Hindered. Prevented.

All of these terms hold the same stymied meaning, and for April Maddox and Decker Brand, memories of their past relationships, wrecked feelings, and putting others before themselves have deterred them from moving on, holding on to the pain that shredded their lives. But with a little help, luck, and a leap of faith, April and Decker try to permeate the walls wrapped around each other’s hearts and open up to the potential that each other cou

I’ve been a fan of Lisa N Paul’s since I read the first sentence on Thursday Nights. If she wrote me her grocery list, I’d read it. But seriously, Lisa knows how to write a love story. She sucks the reader into the story where I felt like her characters were my friends.

Decker and April have lived a life before meeting each other and not an always easy one. But they are determined to do better the second time around in love. Decker is an owner of a constru

Sweet, sexy, and funny, Blocked by Lisa N. Paul was just a pleasure to read. Lisa approached me a while back, asking be to read an early copy. Because of Wicked Book Weekend, I wasn't able to give it a read back then, but I'm so glad I got to it by now. She had mentioned she was worried because it wasn't erotic. I don't know, I thought it was pretty damn hot, and had she not mentioned anything to me beforehand, I never would have realized that there weren't in-depth sePaul

Sometimes moving on means allowing yourself to actually let go of the hurt from the past. Because holding on to it will block you from finding the happiness you truly do deserve.

This is the story of April Maddox and Decker Brand's rocky road towards love, including the past experiences that scarred them. They are now older, stronger, more aware of their own needs and know what is truly important in life. But they are also out of practice at flirting, dating, and relationships. Their/>Sometimes

When I was looking for my next read I wanted a standalone and not a series. When I finished this book I wanted a series. This book is so so good. I loved it. This is one of the stories you want to keep going.
Great couple

Love Decker and April. Read this in a day. Loved the story. Wanted to know what would happen next. Will read more from Lisa N. Paul.

I admit it- I am a Lisa fan. Hard core. Her stuff always gets to me- and puts me in the best warm fuzzy mood ever. Her Charistown series is one of my favorites- and it’s because of the thoroughly sculpted characters, the well thought out plot, and the development of “family,” or the secondary characters, that make you want more and more. And my hope of hopes is that Blocked is the first in a series of books from Lisa.

We start off the book with April- who I fluffing loved. She is a ki

April Maddox. Single mother. Divorcee. When her husband announced, only months from the birth of their son, that he was leaving her for another woman, April decided then and there that she wouldn’t give anyone the power to hurt her or her son like that again. For 5 years, her focus has been her son and her job. She didn’t have many friends, nor did she date to prevent anyone from being able to hurt her when they left.

April is a middle school teacher and she is sweet, very insecure but at the same time is one feisty little thing that has sarcasm that I love. She was very hurt by someone she trusted. Her loyalty was taken for granted leaving April hurt and broken. Her guard is up, walls were erected

If you have not read any of Lisa N. Paul’s books I would highly recommend Blocked.

Lisa writes an emotional story with compelling characters that touch your heart. Her writing is smooth, has the right amount of push and pull, the right amount of heat and steam, and is well plotted story. She adds the right amount of humor and the right amount of angst. She allows her characters to come to life and take over the pages.

In her latest release Blocked, the characters have both experienced bad marriages. They have been
Waffling between 3.5-4* stars so we'll round it up.
Contrary to the cover and the warning, (yes, there is some dirty-talking and some squirming in my seat love scenes), this is a sweet, I mean really sweet, almost cotton candy with sugar on top sweet, book. It's a story of starting over, taking chances, opening yourself up for love.

April and Decker are both single parents, who come to their situations in different ways, but which are equally heart breaking. I wanted to strangle

Lisa N. Paul has done it again! Blocked is charming and heartwarming with just the right amount of drama to keep you entertained. I tore through this story page after page and enjoyed every second of April and Decker's story.

Our heroine April is goodhearted, but that loyalty can easily be taken for granted leaving April's heart trampled by someone she trusted. Despite the turmoil, she's resilient and is determined to be the best version of herself for the ones she loves. Decker knows

I really enjoyed this one!

First off, let me just say, this Hero and heroine each had the absolute WORST in ex's. April's ex in particular. Douchebag of the year award for him.

That being said, this a sweet second chance at love sort of book between two single parents. They have their ups and downs and crazy family. They are sassy and snarky and a little bent at times. The adorable kids steal the spotlight at times.

I have to say, I felt this was very real. Some of it was a bi
I loved this book, and I adore this author!

I absolutely loved this story! This is my forth read from Lisa, and she is a talented and versatile writer. The books in the Thursday Nights series are a bit deeper and intense, and more serious in nature. Blocked, even with its adult issues, felt lighter and more joyful; maybe I'm not making sense, but the overall thing I want to convey is that Lisa has mad writing skills!
