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.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.
Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
Justin is a member of the Charlotte Strikers hockey team. When he agreed to take his brother in-law’s place on the reality show Rich and Single he didn’t realize it would be the greatest regret of his life as now people remember him for his appearance on the show not the fact that he is a hockey player who won the Stanley Cup. As a result of the show he has been saddled with an engagement he doesn’t want for a year but when he dumps her publicly to avoid her vindictive side he decides to spend the summer on the ranch in Wyoming he purchased.
Meghan is a single mother to her eight year old daughter Ellie. She is a school teacher so while she is off for the summer her daughter is staying with her grandparents as she wants to fix up her ranch. She is not looking for love or a relationship so the last thing she needs is the sexy hockey player next door.
Justin starts helping Meghan repair her ranch and they become friends but then it evolves into lovers. They agree that it is only for the summer but sometimes fate has other plans.
I really enjoyed these two together. She sees the kind and caring man that he really is and likes the man he is under his celebrity persona and she has him thinking of family and happy ever afters which he has never felt before. They have great chemistry, humorous banter and Ellie is a charmer.
