Title: Playmaker
A Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance
Publisher: Loveswept/Random House

Blurb

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. Lucky for
me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so
much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want
to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy,
two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping
secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she
thinks I do and 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.

Excerpt

“And we’ll
be right back,” Maddox announced, grabbing my wrist.
He pulled
me away, and I went willingly with him. I glanced back at Braeden and he
started toward us, but I shook my head, stopping him midstep. Maddox turned the
corner, his eyes burning like fire.
“I thought
I could get through this, but I can’t. I’m so fucking tired of the lies. I know
who you are, Lacey.”
My heart
stopped. I pretended to be stupid. “Of course, you know who I am. Stop being
silly. We need to get back to the wedding.”
He stepped
closer, caging me against the wall, with his lips so close to mine. “No,” he
growled low. “I mean, I know who you are . . . Paige.” Keeping his eyes on
mine, he glided a hand down my bare back and reached inside my dress, circling
his fingers around my strawberry birthmark. My whole body broke out in chills.
“Did you seriously think I wouldn’t recognize you?”
“Took you
long enough,” I snapped.
“Oh, I knew
who you were right after you left me in Vegas.” My mouth dropped. “Yeah, that’s
right, sunshine. A well-paid private investigator can find out anything.”

I Wanna Text You Up by Teagan Hunter

Title: I Wanna Text You Up
Author: Teagan Hunter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 1, 2018 
When I put up a ROOMMATE WANTED poster, he was the last person on earth I thought would respond.
He was also the last person on earth I’d agree to let live with me…on purpose.
But, here we are—roommates. I’m certain we can coexist without it being awkward, and I’m determined to make it work. There will be no sexual tension building with each accidental touch, no flutters when he wears that stupid backward baseball cap, and definitely no flirting when we text back and forth.
Caleb Mills can’t be the guy for me. He’s my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.
And that would be wrong…right?

 

My Review

Oh wow. I don’t even know where to start with this book. I a a brand new fan of Teagan Hunter. This is only the second book that I have read from here. I don’t usually read funny books, I tend to read everything in a serious tone. I am there reading this book and saying to myself “I know I am meant to be laughing at this”, but it just doesn’t register.  One day I just couldn’t get into anything  and loads of my book buddies in ‘The Locker Room'(Facebook group for fans of sports romance aka best book group ever) were highly recommending Let’s Get Textual so I gave in and read it and a fan was born.
 Annnnyway I jumped at the chance to read ‘I Wanna Text You Up’. I didn’t even cop that it was a follow up to LGT until I started reading it – because I go in blind, no blurb and no teasers, so as soon as I realised that then my excitement grew even more. Oh My God, I haven’t laughed so much since, well probably since I read Let’s Get Textual. Teagan Hunter is one of the very few authors that can male me laugh. Even my husbag was giving me the side eye because I was laughing – it is a well known fact in my family that i don’t ‘do’ comedy. However this book didn’t just make me laugh, it made me spit my coffee, snort and maybe, just maybe pee myself just a little bit.
Right from the very first page of IWTYU i was just hooked. It was absolutely hilarious and the characters were fantastic. Zoe and Caleb have amazing chemistry and just bounce off each other. It was such an effortless read, everything seemed so natural. Of course it wasn’t all fun and game it had just enough drama to make the perfect recipe.
Add in all the text exchanges!  I am an absolute sucker for books with a lot of written exchange – be in text message, email or letters. A book that I am loving anyway which has lots of this – makes my damn day!
January was a pretty slow book month for me, not a lot hit the spot. However, I Wanna Text You Up didn’t just hit the spot, it hammered it home. I cannot wait to see what is next from Teagan Hunter

By day I’m a freelance cover designer. By every other free moment, a writer. I’m a Missouri raised gal, but I currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband where I spend my days begging him for a cat. I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
