Intercepting Love by L.P. Dover


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?

Intercepting Love was a good read for me. It was a little cheesy in parts, but the kind of cheesy that makes you smile, which made it an enjoyable book. The love triangle aspect that is played up in the blurb is not as intense as you would expect, but that’s not actually a bad thing because once you learn Kate’s secret it’s clear she does not need the angst that the blurb hints at. This is ultimately Kate and Cooper’s story and while they both have some serious baggage, it is a sweet romance that shows that everyone deserves a second chance at finding love. Kate and Cooper definitely have chemistry and the steamy sex scenes keep it from being PG-13 and thank goodness for that because I like my contemporary romances sexy.
Because Ms. Dover has included a plot-line that is definitely that of a romantic suspense nature, I feel limited on what I can actually say about the story without revealing spoilers. So I’ll keep this short and sweet. I enjoyed Intercepting Love. It is a solid read and I will be reading more of Ms. Dover’s Second Chances series.
