Off The Ice is sweet, sexy and undoubtedly swoon-worthy!
Book Four in the Breakaway series did not disappoint. I felt like I was waiting for Justin’s story for so long. Out of all the men in this series, his story was the one I was most eager for. Too me it just seemed like Justin was making too many bad decisions and not thinking with his “brain.” Yep, you guessed it. Justin was a ladies man. But not so much for the past year. Being contractually bound after concluding a reality TV show, Justin found himself in a horrible situation. Stuck with a fiancé that he detested. For a whole year!
After winning yet another Stanley Cup with his team, Justin is taking an overdue break. No longer engaged to a nightmare, Justin is going to hide from the over-watchful eyes of the media and head to Wyoming where he has recently purchased a ranch. He can’t wait to relax, hike and fish without being watched.
Being alone isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be and Justin finds himself looking for company. But not just anyone will due. Justin wants to spend time with a women he met at the airport. A women who doesn’t recognize him (or so he thinks). He just wants to live normally for a while. Only problem with that is the woman Justin is falling for lives several states away.
I really enjoyed watching Justin and Meghan together. At first they remained friends despite their growing attraction to each other. I loved how Justin was determined to not hurt Meghan in anyway. He actually showed a different side of himself when he was with her. Gone was the womanizing, playboy. He was careful with Meghan’s feelings. Justin was a gentleman. He was thoughtful, caring and put Meghan’s feelings before his own.
There are definitely obstacles that Justin and Meghan will have to hurdle over to find a happily-ever-after. This book has plenty of emotional feels. In addition there is angst brought on my Justin’s ex. But thankfully, that aspect did not overshadow the love that Justin and Meghan had growing.
This book was sweet. I read it very quickly as it was not a long novel. I loved that while we were experiencing the romance between Justin and Meghan, we also get to visit with the other characters that helped make this series as great is it is. I highly recommend this series. I enjoyed it very much and praise L.P. Dover for her writing talent.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it, 🙂
