Off the Ice is the latest Breakaway novel from L.P Dover and brings us to Justin Davis as he tries to run from the fame he doesn't want. Instead of being known as a great hockey player, all anyone wants to do is talk about his playboy bachelor ways and he needs an escape from it. Planning on spending some time alone in a remote part of Wyoming the last thing he expected was to meet single mother Meghan Taylor who he just can't seem to stay away from. Even though the

What do you do when you just finished playing out the craziest reality tv romance gone bad...Why you take off to your ranch to chill out and just be normal. Well, as normal as a Stanley Cup winner can be. Justin Davis wants to get back his normal life and being around those out West should do the trick.

Meghan Taylor just happens to be his neighbor. She has the ranch next to his but hasn't handled it well for many years. It is in need of some drasti

I had fallen behind in this series but it didn’t matter because I was easily able to read Off The Ice without any worries. I am a huge hockey fan so I must say I am a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more hockey in the book but overall I liked it. There of course was some drama and maybe a little too much but this was a sexy and at times angsty read. Meghan and Justin were likable characters, ones that you would want to get to know, especially the normal Justin, not the one people tho

Super sweet as I loved the characters. Justin was surprisingly ready so soon after a fake reality show relationship breaks up. I loved Wyoming and the Carolinas so the travel was cool.

‘Off the Ice’ is the 4th book of the Breakaway series. I’ve been looking forward to Justin’s story since finishing the last book in the series, Playmaker and it is bittersweet for me that this is the last book of the series. I was really hoping to get more books :(

Justin Davis plays hockey for Charlotte Strikers. His retirement plan is to become an actor. In line with his plan, he agrees to take his teammate and brothers-in-law, Dallas’s place on popular reality TV show, Rich and Single. What he

14 DAYS? I needed fourteen days to finish this book? What the …?

This has got to be the record because I usually finish it in less than a week. Unless it’s boring – then I stopped reading it and just don’t finish it at all.

Okay, to the beginning.

As you may know, I am one of those people that love a good cover. Yes, I usually judge the book by its cover but it means a lot to me if it catches my eye somehow because of the font, setting of the title/author’s name etc. I do like the male model (defin

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 “fiancé” for a year. On the final day of said year, Justin bounces out pretty publicly and his fake fiancé doesn’t handle being embarrassed well. In the meantime, Justin heads to a secluded ranch he’s recently purchased in Wyoming where he immedi ...more

Throughout the past books we have watched Justin and his stint in the Hollywood reality spotlight. First with the show and then the year that he had to spend with the fiancée that he chose. We also know just how big a mistake that whole thing was. Now, the year is over and Justin has dropped the fiancée like a hot potato and left N.C. to sort of hide in Wyoming where no one would expect him to be. With his life being picked apart by the media, he just wants to be in a

Easy, stress free hockey romance, to be honest though, there is no hockey action, just pure sweet romance. Justin Davis needs to get away during the offseason, somewhere far far away, hopefully somewhere he won’t be recognised. His wicked ex, Miranda, is spreading lies, and she’s got it in for him. She’s also not too happy about the way he publicly dumped her (yes she did deserve it). Meghan Taylor, a widower of 8 years, and a single mother is home alone for the summer while she f

My goodness, L.P. Dover has done it again. In the final book in the Breakaway Series we finally get our look into the life of Justin Davis. He is one of the hot and talented members of the Charlotte Strikers Hockey Team. Justin decides to spend the summer off season away from everyone on a ranch. Meghan is a ranch owner who is looking to spend her summer fixing up her property. She is not looking for new friends and definitely not a new man. L.P. Dover is an author that is able to get her reader ...more

Going on a tv dating show sounds fun but when he gets trapped into a fake engagement to Miranda his life was a living nightmare. Now the year is up and he's free but Miranda won't go quietly then he meets Meghan and he just wants a chance with her.

I enjoyed this story it has the sweet in Meghan and her daughter and the drama in the truly horrible Miranda. The story was well written and easy to follow.

It is with much relief that this story truly takes place, for the most part, off the ice. Although I keep coming back to this series, I’ve made no secret of the fact this author’s lack of hockey knowledge drives me bananas. Now, if the same holds true for you, I will warn you that the first chapter will make you want to pull your hair out. But after that, the hockey world is more or less left behind so the sailing’s a bit smoother.

Having read some other books in this series, I had gotten to know Justin a bit so I was glad to get my hands on an early copy of his story. Not only is he the star center forward of the Charlotte Strikers hockey team, he’s also the celebrity bachelor from the popular reality TV show, Rich and Single. His story begins with Justin's team winning the Stanley Cup and the clock finally running out one his one year contract engagement to the bachelorette he was forced to choose during the show's final ...more

L.P. Dover is one of my most read authors, and there’s a reason for that: She always delivers beautiful, multifaceted contemporary romances with hilarious banter and amazing chemistry – and sports romances, be it hockey or MMA, are her specialty. It was a given that I would try to get my hands on this story as soon as possible! Word of advice though, I definitely recommend to read the other books in the series first, because whereas each book focuses on a different couple, you still might feel l ...more

I received an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

Justin Davis is a star hockey player, who just won the Stanley Cup with his team. He was also on a reality “Bachelor” type show, and ended up with a very horrible woman named Miranda. They were contractually obligated to be together for one year, so the day that contract was up, Justin dumped Miranda – on national television. He decides he needs a break from his life, so he decides to buy a ranch in Wyoming and spend the off season the

L.P.Dover is a new author to me and I have absolutely no idea why that is, particularly since I adore hockey stories. I had no trouble reading Off The Ice as a stand alone. Now that I have found her I will be sure to go back and read other books as and when time permits.
Justin Davis is a player for the Charlotte Strikers. After stepping in and replacing his brother in law on the television show Rich and Single, he is finally free of the nightmare commitment he had to his fake fiance.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

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.

Off the Ice follows Justin Davis and Meghan Taylor.

Justin Davis is an all-star center for the Charlotte Strikers and the star of a reality TV show along the lines of the Bachelor. What was supposed to be his chance at finding love ended in finding a hot disaster and her father. Miranda has made Justin's life miserable for the year that they have been under contract. Now that the contract is over, Justin is ready to trade the crazy for some peace and quiet on his new ranch.

This isn't my first LP Dover book so I was excited to read another. I really enjoyed Justin and Meghan's story, the two of them are just so sweet and soppy that you can't help but fall in love with them, as fast as they fell for each other. I had a big dopey grin on my face a lot of the time and even had wet eyes at one point... a happy wet face, I'm too emotional for my own sanity sometimes!

Justin is sweet from beginning to end, he would win me over in a heartbeat. His lovely heart and his word
Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
Finally, we get to see the real Justin. He has been in all the previous books in the series. Somewhat cocky and free spirited but underneath a good protector of his family. An excellent hockey player that "volunteered" for a reality show that turned his life into a living h*ll. The stress becomes too much for him. After a very public break from his fake fiance, he heads to Wyoming to cool his jets. He happens to bump into his neighbor at the airport and the rest was history.

A chance meeting at an airport, an instant attraction/ curiosity and a friendship starts that begins to lead to something so much better.

The way that Justin ended the relationship with his fake fiancee' 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 fiancee to start a smear campaign against him. When he meets Meghan and she doesn't recognize him, he's glad and intrigued.

Mind you I didn't like his reasoning for staying with miranda, but then again we all make mistakes and learn from them. And Justin has definitely learned his lesson. I adored Meghan from the very start as well, she's just a breath a fresh air that Justin needed to be around to see what his life could be like. Behind the spot light. I loved off the ...more

Omg I absolutely love this series and Justin will make you swoon. Justin & Meghan have such an instant connection right from the start. I truly enjoyed every minute of Meghan & Justin together and Ellie was so sweet. I also loved seeing what Maddox, Lacey, Dallas and Callie were up too. Really amazing series with amazing characters and can’t wait to read more in this series.

Off the Ice is my new favorite in this series. It is low angst and fun to read. I love that Justin and Meghan were able to work out their differences without alot of drama. I couldn't get enough of this one and can't wait to see what Dover brings us next!

This book was definitely better than the last one I read in the series (book 2), but it still didn't knock it out of the park for me. It was just okay... a cute, romantic story that didn't focus too much on hockey (which I'm glad b/c I know nothing about hockey LOL)

My issue was that the author spent so much time developing the first part of the story that the end felt very rushed and sort of unfinished.

Justin is not bashful, and he's so playful, “oh yeah?” He lowered his boxers, and my insides clenched with anticipation. Circling the table, he grabbed me around the waist, and I wrapped my legs around him. “Now that I’m naked, what do you want?” I liked this book, I fell in love with Justin. ...more

This is the fourth book in the Breakway series, but my first time reading this author and series. I'm a fan of hockey romance though, so I may have to go back and get the rest! I loved the themes of standing up for yourself and what makes you happy and what is right and learning to be the best you at the time. And of course, falling in love when you least expect it.

This book combined some of my favorite things: hockey, hot men, lovely scenery, cowboys, strong women, moms, family, and loyalty. Ju
