Intercepting Love by L.P. Dover, Mae I Design

**A steamy, romantic suspense novel by USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. Dover. If you love strong and sexy football players along with wild and hot motocross racers then this book is definitely for you.**

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?

This is a great story of second chances, the difficulty in overcoming addiction, the hardships of losing a loved one, thrills and suspense with a few twists and of course hot romance... This is my first book I have read by this author and I would definitely recommend this book. I cannot wait to read Evan's story next!

3.5 STARS. I have a few issues with this story, actually the story in itself is not bad only some of how the author wrote it. Cooper's constantly calling Kate LOVE, not only sounds cheesy but it's hard to picture a young football player saying that sort of thing over and over, next having sex in the car in the driveway while a crazy lady is out to get you, come on now. The overview gives Luke a much larger part in Kate's live then there actually was.

I really enjoyed this story. It incorporated all the things I liked about the other books in the series, whilst being completely different in many ways.   Firstly, I liked that Kate and Cooper didn't have any past connections, and they never met through any of the other characters in the series. Not that any of these things were bad, but as much as I like intertwined series', at times it can become a bit much. Of course, there were characters from the other books in this series in this story but they weren't as involved as before, and I was intrigued to see what Dover had in store for Cooper because I thought he got a really raw deal in Meant For Me.   The other great thing about Kate and Cooper having no ties and being complete strangers was that there was plenty of sexual tension and a great build up to that moment when they finally both gave in and allowed their feelings, or more like their hormones, to take over. There was instant chemistry between them and as I've come to expect from Dover's characters, together, they heated up my Kindle more often than not.   Both Kate and Cooper suffered through their fair share of heartache and tragedy which seemed to follow them no matter where they went. Kate was haunted by her past and even if she could let go of it Scott's family were there to remind her every year. I was surprised by the lengths Marianne went through to destroy Kate. That would was angry and vindictive. As for Cooper, I hated that his family treated him so badly and it was a true shock when he went to confront his mother about everything that had been happening to turn not only his but Kate's life upside down.   This was a wonderful story that held my attention the entire time with great characters. I loved the addition of the notes and letters. although they added to the heartache, they gave this book a fun twist with they way in which they appeared. Great idea!

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. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

Find out by reading this book, worthy of 5 stars, and fall in love with yet another stunning novel by L.P. Dover.

Motorcross, football, and super hotties... yes please.  Kate is smart, compassionate, and scarred.  Cooper is hot, sweet,  and is hiding from his past.   I felt horrible for Cooper when he was first introduced in a previous Second Chance novel, so seeing that he might finally get his second chance filled me with the happy. Add to the mix Luke, a bad boy who isn't and has his eyes set on Kate and it was a unputdownable read.  It was a super sweet, yet super hot love story filled with just enough suspense to keep you on your toes.  I will admit that there were a few times I was hoping she could pick both.  I love that it is part of her Second Chance series and while they are all stand alones, there are enough crossovers to help it feel like an old friend for fans, but not so much that people who are picking up her works for the first time will feel at all lost.

Okay, let me start out by saying I am a sucker for a second chance story! Intercepting Love did not disappoint me one bit. This is a story about healing, growing from the past, of course for it to be a story about what I mentioned above it also has to be a story of loss. It seems like Kate and Cooper both have not had an easy time. They have both dealt with their own heartaches and disappointments in love and life. I really think Cooper and Kate are meant to be together! Seriously what a pair these two are. I seriously tore this book up and was left wanting to read more about these two. What an amazing story. L.P. Dover is an amazing author, I've read some of her previous work and she has never disappointed me. This book is a standalone but is part of a series. Not sure if that makes sense, it's a second Chances Series. Honestly, though, if you one click one of them why not just one click them all. Like I said you won't be disappointed!

Man oh man, how am I supposed to pick and stick with a book boyfriend if every time L.P. Dover writes a book I have a new one?!?! I love love love love that L.P. Dover did a fifth book to her Second Chances series, and decided that this time it was going to involve football. However, I do miss the MMA fighters, any sports athlete is fun! This story was no exception. LP Dover really knows how to write a story that involves, love, friendship, drama, and sports. I love how realistic she makes her stories and how relatable the plots are. These kind of situations can actually take place and I'm sure have taken place we just haven't heard about them. I also love the plan on words with the title and how it always always is a play on the specific sport that is written into the character! "I know I definitely wouldn't want you spending time with another man if you were mine." Intercepting Love is a sweet story about two people who have deep, sad, and messed up pasts that meet and find that they can be loved and can find love again! "My fingers ached to grab a handful of it and hold her to me as I claimed her lips with my own. She was so goddamned beautiful." Kate Townsend, experienced something quite traumatic two years ago that no one should have have to experience, especially when it involves a loved one. This very traumatizing incident has left her feeling as though she is not worthy of someone's love every again and therefore she throws herself into her work as the physicians assistant to the NFL Charlotte Panthers. Never really able to let go and completely move on Kate deals with the pain everyday and even worse on the anniversary of it until she meets the new quarterback for the team, Cooper Davis. "I'm sure you'll figure that out when the time comes. If you want me to kiss you, I'm not going to do it until you place your soft lips on mine first. If you want me to touch you, I'm not going to unless you beg me for it. It's all on you now, love." Cooper Davis, former quarter back to the Oakland hurt his shoulder his life went downhill. Eventually all the spiraling got him kicked off the Oakland football team, however one team did want him and he was traded to the Charlotte Panthers. Never receiving any positive support from his parents Cooper always felt like he would never be good enough or felt as though he could be loved until in walked Kate Townsend. "Hope that one day you will see in my eyes what I see in yours. There's a craving deep inside of you that I can see each time I touch you. It burns brighter every single time. I've never seen that with anyone, and that is how I know I have a chance." Immediately Kate starts feeling nervous around Cooper and his dazzling crystal blue eyes, but keeps telling herself that she can't possibly fall for someone like Cooper, someone that is only into the sexy and drugs according to the many tabloid stories. Meanwhile, Cooper makes Kate aware that he is going to wear her down and she will eventually be his and that he never gives up. "It's because I love you, Kate, and people aren't supposed hurt the ones they love." Eventually, Cooper does what he said he would and kate gives in! The chemistry between the two of them is fun and intense. Each being what the others needed to move past the pain from the past. Both being there for each other when they really need it and trusting and loving each other is what gets them through their bumpy love story. It just takes that one person sometimes to help you realize that you are worth it and that people can change for the better. I love stories like this because if gives people out there hope that there is someone for everyone and you go through certain experiences good and bad and that things happen for a reason. "Nothing and no one is going to keep me away from you…..None of that even compares to you." When I was reading the story nothing seemed as if these events and type of relationships could never happen. Not every relationship is easy…pretty much none of them are and that is why I love the stories that sum up the Second Chances series and the characters of each story get just that a second chance, however they have to work for it it isn't just handed to them. They have to earn this second chance in order to make them not take it for granted. Real life lessons in this story and the others. Never give up and always fight for what you want and never feel as though you don't deserve what you want. "I'm always thirsty for you love." I can't wait for the next installment to the Second Chances series. Thanks to L.P. Dover for writing such great stories. If you like sports, romance, sexual tension, great friendships, a bit of drama/action, and strong characters this book is definitely something you will want to read. Cooper Davis is one sexy character and my new book boyfriend.

This book was a hundred percent amazing. Kate was the sweet girl next door. Cooper had a heart of gold. This book had romance, suspense, and mystery. Just when I think I love the last guy the most, she always one ups it. I always end up liking the new one the best. Definitely give this book a read! It won't disappoint.

 Intercepting Love what can I say besides wholly hotness! This book was just incredible. I enjoyed every moment I spent reading it. I became absolutely drawn into this story and once I was there I couldn't put it down! I once again got to be in the world of Cooper Davis now he is one smoking hot filled with yumminess football playing male that just drives me crazy thinking about him! AS Cooper gets traded to a NFL team in North Carolina he meets the team physician Kate and discovers that maybe he could really fall for a woman like her but after everything he has been through already losing one woman to another guy he's not taking any chances of that ever happening again. Kate on the other hand has not had it so easy herself she lost love and is blamed for his death by his family she decides to swear herself from love and dating as she can't seem to move on from her loss. Cooper however, can't keep his eyes off of her and is determined to make Kate his! I loved the way theses to characters completely played off of one another as if they had been together this entire time. The flirting was sometimes comical yet very honest and sincere. I fell in love with Cooper and Kate both and found myself at time clinging to the book waiting and hoping that it would all come together in the end and that Cooper would finally get his girl (woman) and that Kate would finally open her heart to love once more. I laughed, cried, cheered, and at times was a little miffed at myself for falling so deep into the story. Intercepting Love grabbed my heart and has held it captive as I fell in love with the book. LP Dover once again has not only had me go through an entire box of tissues but also managed to capture my heart and full attention to yet another captivating creation of romance.

L.P. Dover has scored a TOUCHDOWN with Intercepting Love!!!! She has done it again.  First off, I want to say how much I love this series.  Each book can be read as a standalone, but the way each book intertwines with the other is absolutely brilliant.  In Intercepting Love, we get Cooper's and Kate's story.  I got to know a little about Cooper in a previous book when he was dating Claire.  I really felt bad for Cooper in Meant for Me, because he seemed like such a great guy.  I was so glad L.P decided to give him his own story. Kate is their team physician. She loved working for the football team.  She didn't have to worry about the guys making moves on her, because her brother was on the team and he made sure he told them.   I was glad that the story switched POVs between Kate and Cooper.  Being inside both of their heads let me connect with both of them even more.     Cooper and Kate both have skeletons in their closet.  I love how both become what each other needs to get past it.  They lean on each other and are there for each other during their lowest points.  That is what love is after all.  Being at your lowest point and having that one person there to help push you through.  I love how protective Cooper was of Kate and Vise Versa.  When Cooper first arrived, I loved how Kate wouldn't even give him the time of day.  Cooper never gave up though.  He was a very persistent man and a huge flirt.  Kate and no chance. There was a love triangle in Intercepting Love.  Luke is the best friend of Kate's brother.  He has a past of being a player as well but there was something about Kate that he wanted as well.  They were friends for so long and he tried to get her on a date several times.  When she finally agreed, Cooper came into the picture.  Luke seemed like a great guy.  I hope I get to see more of him in the future. This story was beautifully written and the the character development was perfect!!!  Kate and Cooper both grew so much by the end of the story.  This story felt so real and life like that I was able to feel everything that the characters for feeling.  I felt as if I was there the entire time rooting for them. The suspense was killing me in this book!!!  Even though I knew who was doing it, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time waiting for them to strike again.  Intercepting Love was a real page turner.  It was full of love and suspense from the very beginning.  I was hooked after the very first page and did not want to put it down.  I can't wait to see where L.P takes us next!!!!  I highly recommend this book!!!!

Let me start by saying I LOVE L.P. Dover and have read all of her books and own them all. When I received this book by the author for my honest opinion, I screamed like the good fan girl I am and started promptly reading. (I also purchased this book when it was published). We met Cooper in Meant for Love and you immediately liked his character. He is the boy next door and I was excited when he received his own book. Cooper has had some issues between the last book and now, but in Intercepting Love we watch him conquer his issues, grow and heal. Kate is a new character who is a strong, independent woman. She is someone that you can relate to and understand her struggles and decisions. The book starts off strong and does not let up. The love triangle is addressed early and does not take away from the story. There are many twists and turns which flow nicely and makes for a fast read. This is a great book and you will not be disappointed. Mrs. Dover has a way of making you fall in love with her characters. They are real people who you cheer with, cry with and understand their struggles and triumphs. You will not be disappointed with any of her books. I am eagerly awaiting the next Second Chance and Fae books.

Intercepting Love is a TOUCHDOWN in my book! I love L.P. Dover’s creativity and thinking when she writes a book. She is able to create a world that you feel like you can belong in and creates characters that you feel in touch with. She has done just that with Intercepting Love.  The story follows Kate, a beautiful young girl who is a physician for a NFL Team. She has a zest for life, but yet skeletons in her past that can make her feel like she is struggling to free herself. She decides to give dating a shot after a devastating end to a past relationship. Instead of one person vying for her affection, it ends up being two. Luke, her brother’s best friend, and Cooper, the new quarterback for the team.  The story is not your typical love triangle; there is more to this story than who gets the girl. It’s a story of overcoming obstacles, being there for someone no matter what they are going through, and trying to help them heal from their past mistakes to prevent them from happening again. This is about taking chances on those that you love, and dedicating yourself to them, and to be willing to open your own past up and laying it out for the world to see. That is what this story is about, baring your soul to someone for acceptance, understanding, and forgiveness.  Intercepting Love has romance, suspense, and emotions woven into the pages that create a wonderful book. Ms. Dover has once again outdone herself in creating a book that the readers will love.
