Title: Intended for Bristol
Series: Second Chances
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense
L. P. Dover’s tantalizing Second Chances series scores once again as the Carolina Cougars’ infamous bad boy takes a shot at seducing a driven career woman who’s supposed to be out of bounds.
Trying to live down his very public indiscretions, Carolina Cougars kicker Jaxon Reed feels like the most hated man in the NFL. Fans and teammates alike treat him with the disrespect he figures he deserves. Unfortunately for them, Jaxon’s no easy target. As payback, he sets his sights on the quarterback’s sister: a sultry brunette who’s curvy, confident, and sexy as hell. But what begins as a revenge fling turns into so much more—a lesson in humanity, and in love.
Bristol Thomas doesn’t have time for games, especially those played by her brother’s Neanderthal teammates. A talented interior designer with lofty goals, she doesn’t know the first thing about football, or Jaxon—except that he’s exactly the type of man she usually avoids. But when his deep laugh and deeper kisses break through her walls, she becomes the target of a fan who’s obsessed with Jaxon. Now she needs to know that Jaxon has her back . . . because he already has her heart.
**Intended for Bristol is an Interconnected Standalone in the Second Chances Series**
This one of my favorites out of this series even though they can be read as stand-alones loved this second chance romance. If you have read LP Dover books before, then you know Jaxon is cocky, hot-headed jerk. His team was against him. Jaxon had a lot to prove and overcome. In this book, we get to see a different side and understand him more. I can’t believe I loved his character because of the way he was it took me by surprise.
Bristol’s character has you liking her off the bat. She is funny, smart, and responsible. Everyone just loves her. She’s a genuine person. She doesn’t take Jaxon crap either. I enjoyed how both these characters blended together. This story is full of anguish and mysteries, but above all, it’s sweet refreshing story about two different people finding their way to each other. They had some obstacles, like family getting in the way, but through it all, their love overcomes all. It’s emotional sexy. At times, raw. They weathered their storm and invested in their relationship.
I really enjoyed Bristol and Jaxon’s journey to their HEA. LP Dover has given us characters that we can relate to in our own life situations. Plus, who doesn’t love reading about sexy football players?
Carolina along with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she even began her literary journey she worked in Periodontics enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
Not only does she love to write, but she loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes, white water rafting, and you can’t forget the passion for singing. Her two number one fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime and those songs usually consist of Christmas carols.
Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written over twenty novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
