Blurb

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. 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Going For The Hole is a sexy, sweet, and witty romantic comedy.

Lucas and Ashley are not looking for love, but you know how the saying goes, “love finds you when you are least expecting it,” as this couple will soon discover. Lucas is a pro-golfer looking for some rest and relaxation with his brother and his best friend at a resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. Ashley is a successful doctor who is at the same resort for a bachelorette week for her soon to be sister-in-law. She is enjoying being with her best friend, Harper, and having fun again after her cheating ex.  

The attraction between these two is evident from their very first meeting. What begins as lust soon turns into something much more. They are perfectly suited to one another. Both are successful, independent, and intelligent. Lucas really respects Ashley, and no woman has every affected him this way. Ashley is one of the only women who doesn’t just fall in love with him immediately because of his fame. In fact, that really turns her off, but as she gets to know the man, she sees a whole different side of him. I loved the sexy and sarcastic banter between the two of them. I enjoyed the romance between them, but I really enjoyed the fact that they really liked each other as people. Not only was there a romance but a mutual respect and friendship.

However, some miscommunication and misunderstandings occur that add some angst and drama to the book. Thankfully, it doesn’t overwhelm the book, and it’s short-lived. There is a great cast of secondary characters who are busy falling in love as well, but it flows very smoothly with the rest of the story.

I loved the setting of the book, but I may be a little partial as I’m a South Carolina girl myself who is living in Georgia. Anytime I can find a book about my home state, I relish in it. Dover did a great job of showing just how special and beautiful the area is, so thank you, LP Dover!

Be sure to read L.P. Dover’s note at the end of the book. It’ a personal note, and I’m even more impressed with her. I love and respect that she has used her words as a way to bring attention to a rare disorder that affects others. Hopefully, this exposure will lead to more research and a way to save lives.

Excerpt

“When can I see you again?”
I shook my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“I took a needle in the ass for you. Surely, that deserves
more of your attention?”
Why did he always have to give me that devilish smile of
his? As much as I wanted to hate it, I couldn’t.“Why are you doing this? Can’t
you find someone else?”
“Of course I can, but I want you. We can have secret
meetings in here if you’re still embarrassed to be seen in public with me.”
I rolled my eyes. “I’m not embarrassed. You’re you, and
I’m a respectable member of society.”
He burst out laughing. “Okay, I see how it is.”
“I just don’t want the publicity,” I added. “You can
understand that, right? You of all people should know what it’s like not to
have privacy.”
His smile faded. “You’re right, I do, but it’s my life. I
can’t change who I am.” My body shivered with the intensity of his stare. “For
once, I thought I’d found someone who wanted me for me and not my money or
fame.”
Guilt racked my body and I sighed. “Okay, I give in. I can
see you tomorrow, after I get out of the spa. Maybe we can order in room
service.”
Eyes twinkling, he went over to the door and opened it. “Now
that’s a plan I can get behind.”
Before I could walk out, he stood in
my way, body close to mine. “I’m going to break through that ice wall of yours,
sunshine. One way or another.”
I batted my eyelashes in an innocent matter. “Good luck with
that.”
