Playmaker by L.P. Dover


He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the shots.

I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice, breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell not sitting on the bench.

When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse—but that’s the only way you’ll see me walk down the aisle. Commitment is for suckers. Lucky for me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible . . . and weirdly familiar. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy Vegas night I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel . . . and so much more. Still, Lacey’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.



This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Dover in-fact I’m a huge fan of her work but I’m sorry to say this one just didn’t do it for me.

I love a good second chance romance itself and when you add hockey into the mix well you can consider it sold but this storyline almost had me heading towards a refund it just seemed patchy and unrealistic. The main protagonists Maddox and Lacey came across as very immature for their age, I felt that throughout the story they were riding on the backs of the secondary characters who although were nice they weren’t enough to substantiate the story.

There’s really not much more I can say apart from repeating that this book just wasn’t one of my favourites however that’s not to say others won’t like it after all it’s a popular genre.
