Review: Intended for Bristol by L.P. Dover

L. P. Dover’s tantalizing Second Chances series gets a change of scenery as the Carolina Cougars’ infamous bad boy heads to the West Coast. His best laid plans call for seduction—but a driven career woman has him begging for more.
Trying to live down his very public indiscretions, Carolina Cougars kicker Jaxon Reed feels like the most hated man in the NFL. When he’s traded away, his new teammates in California don’t waste any time making his life miserable. 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.

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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Intended for Bristol is the 8th book in the Second Chances series but it can be read as a stand alone. I have read some but not all of the previous books. There are reoccurring characters but each book is about a different set of characters.

This book was really quick and easy to get through. Although it was a little bit too insta love for my liking it still had all of the components that I enjoy in a contemporary romance. It was also nice to revisit some of the characters from past instalments.

I have to admit that it took me a while to warm up to Jaxon. I remembered him too well from the previous book where he was not at all a good or likeable person. Going with the "second chances" motto I pushed my feelings aside and eventually found myself routing for him. Bristol, on the other hand, I liked immediately. She was smart and motivated and had a good head on her shoulders.

My only complaint about this book is that it was a little busy. I could get past the insta love but with the lies of omission complicating the relationship and a crazy fan aspect, Jaxon and Bristol were really on their toes for the entire 233 pages. Having said that, it was still quite entertaining.

I look forward to what comes next!
