Review ~ Intercepting Love (Second Chances #5) by L.P. Dover

Intercepting Love (Second Chances, #5)Paperback purchased by myself

Release Date: May 27th 2014

Both have what she wants … but only one has what she needs.

Working with professional athletes and helping them recover from their injuries has always been Kate Townsend’s dream, but after an accident left her scarred and heartbroken years ago she refuses to let what happened in her past happen again. Staying focused is the key, as well as not letting her feelings interfere with her job … no matter the circumstances. All of that is easier said than done when not only one, but two men crave her healing touch, igniting every single desire she’s denied herself for so long.

Cooper Davis, NFL’s star quarterback and most eligible bachelor, packs up and leaves his home to move across the states to the East Coast after an injury results in the embarrassing trade to another team. Bitter from the pain, he deals with his problems through drugs and alcohol—almost ruining his football career—until he meets the one woman who makes him want to feel; the same woman who refuses to give up on him no matter how many times he screws up. He has to have her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Especially, now that someone else threatens to take her away.

Motocross champion and local bad boy Luke Collins never takes no for an answer. For the past four months he’s used his charms to get what he wants, and now he’s so close to getting the girl of his dreams … if she’ll give in just once. One time is all he needs, and he’s never been known to fail, but he’s also never had to fight for a woman’s affections. Only one man will win their way into Kate’s heart, but which one will intercept the other and take what they want? Which one will she choose?

My Opinion

I was gutted when I didn't receive an ARC of this book as it seems like I've been waiting for it forever after I purchased all the books in this series and read them in just a few days. However, it made my day when I saw the paperback was up on Amazon already and I could get it to arrive before the kindle release. I just had to order it straight away and I got the in the post today (21st)--I squealed at the postman which he did look at me strangely for. I couldn't wait to start it and it was the perfect summers day for reading so spent most of it outside with this book. I just couldn't put it down. Once again this author captured my heart with her words and characters, creating a story I fell in love with and couldn't put down. 

I will admit that the MMA romances in this series have been my favourite so I'm super excited for her new series with the other fighters but this books was just as good. It was nice to hear Cooper's story and the NFL and 'football' was interesting as being from the UK, it's not something that is common here or that I know much about. 

Cooper was just a swoon-worthy as any of L.P's other male leads and I liked Kate's bite. I'm still not sure about Luke so I'm glad there wasn't as much of him in the book as I was expecting but overall the cast was lovable and worked well together. I can't wait for Evan's story as I found myself really growing to like him so now I'll have to begin the long wait all over again for the next release (whichever book that may be).

Overall I'd seriously check this series out if you haven't already. The author has a way with words and you won't be able to stop reading them.
