Can't Block My Love eBook“From bestselling romance author Xavier Neal comes an all-new, rom-com sports romance featuring a gorgeous goalie who can block any shot — except Cupid’s…

Once upon a time, the Vlasta Vipers hockey team was so incredible — on and off the ice — they were almost mythical.

Every other university wanted their team to be them.

Every chick who crossed their paths wanted to bang them.


Their clout on the ice is questionable.

Their competition cutthroat.

Their beds…

Well, there will always be puck bunnies ready to keep them warm. After all, no matter how well they do or don’t do, they are the university’s most important athletes.

However, when Remington Ronald Rutledge the 3rd, lands himself on the new head coach’s bad side, which threatens his chances of playing for the season, he finds himself striking an unusual deal with a blast from his past he can barely remember.

Did she always wear these glasses?

Was her hair always this curly?

Has she always had a smile that makes him wanna smile?

 What happens when the bad boy who makes all the rules is forced to play by someone else’s?

Can this good-looking goalie let love score, or will blocking it be the biggest mistake of his life?

““You look like you’re about to do a Christmas commercial for PetSmart.”

 Her eyes dart down to the evergreen dress shirt.

 “You don’t have anything else to wear?”

 “I don’t think I look that bad…”

 “You look like I should cover your ass in Tinsel and hang ornaments off your nipples.”

 “That would hurt.”

 “Not as much as having to stare at you in this shirt.”

 Poppy’s eyes dart up to me and narrow. “Well, unless you wanna stop by Target-”


“Try again.”

 “Or Macy’s-”

 “More likely.”

 “Or Nordstrom’s-”

 “We’ve got an account there.”

 “This is what I’m wearing,” she defiantly grumps. “Deal with it.”



 In one swift motion, I reach over and undo the top three buttons of the shirt. Her squeaks of objection fall on deaf ears as I mentally debate on unfastening one more. Currently, this gives just the smallest side shot of her tits, which should be enough to entice without giving her the skate chasing slut sensation I’m trying to avoid. I approve my handy work with a pleased nod. “Dealt with.”



 “What about my hair?” Poppy instantly squeaks.

 “You look like you don’t own a brush.” I tilt my head condescendingly to the side. “Do you?”

 Her jaw plummets to her lap in my favorite way.

 Unable to resist the urge to get under her skin, I scold, “Might wanna shut that before my dick finds its way into it.”

 She snaps it closed so fast a chomp sound echoes around my SUV.


“Xavier Neal lives in Texas where she spends her time getting lost in writing, reading, or fandoms she recently discovered. Whether she is enjoying books or movies, she continues finding inspiration at every turn to bring more exciting stories to life.”
