Review ~ Going for the Hole by L.P. Dover

Title: Going for the Hole
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Rom/Com
Release Date: June 25, 2018
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser @ RBA Designs

My Opinion

As anyone who follows my blog regularly, I can't get enough of LP's work. As one of my favourite authors, I was excited to read Going for the Hole. The fact that it was a romantic comedy made it all the more appealing since I needed a light-hearted read after uni exams. 

However, despite all of that, it pains me to say this book didn't live up to what I've come to expect from this author. I'm not sure why, but I struggled to connect with the Ashley and Lucas. I wanted to like them, but it felt like the spark usually present in L.P's couples was missing. Things between them happened too quickly as well. I wasn't sure I believed it. 

As for the plot, it was a light, easy read. I don't think it lined up with my sense of humour, but that's not to say others won't laugh at it. 

Overall, it's not my favourite book by this author. However, she has some exceptional reads so it's inevitable there is going to be one book at some point I don't connect with. Despite that I'm still looking forward to what she comes up with next!


Grip it softly.
Stroke it smooth.
And you’ll sink right into the hole. That’s my motto both on and off the golf course. The women come in full supply everywhere I go and there are no complaints. Maybe it’s the size of my driver that gets them going. 
I’m Lucas “Ace” Montgomery, professional golfer and world record holder for the longest drive in golf history. The PGA Tour has been my life, but it’s time for a break. A few relaxing weeks of drinking and golf with friends in Myrtle Beach is what I need. However, when a bright pink ball knocks me out on the course, and a blonde beauty comes to my aid, I expect to see a gallery girl, a.k.a a member of the Party Groupie Association. Trust me, those girls know how to have fun. Although, to my surprise, it’s not what I get at all. 
Dr. Ashley Locke is beautiful and everything I’d want if I was ever to get serious about someone. Unfortunately, she has no interest in me whatsoever which only makes me want her more. All she wants is to get through her friend’s bachelorette weekend and go back to her life. But after injuring me on the course, I’m not letting her run away so easily. When I want something, I get it. 
I’m not competing for money this time. All I want is to win her heart.

Review ~ Dirty Exes (Liars, Inc. #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Dirty Exes (Liars, Inc., #1)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: June 5th 2018

Publisher: Skyscape

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

My Opinion

What can I say that I haven't already about Rachel Van Dyken? There's probably not a lot. I love her work and really can't get enough of it, and Dirty Exes was no exception. 

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this book, but it hooked me from the first page. It was a light-hearted and humorous read that was the perfect break from the stresses of exams. It made me smile, was a little silly, and had some hot moments.

I'm also glad the characters ended up with who they did. For a moment I thought they might end up in different couples, which I wouldn't have enjoyed so much. But they didn't. Blaire and her guy were a good match. They bounced off each other and worked. 

Overall, another enjoyable read from this author.
