Dirty Groom

Book 7 in the Slayers Hockey series

Mira Lyn Kelly

Release Date: August 9th, 2022


It seems like a solid plan…

  • Get hitched, Vegas style.
  • Lose each other’s numbers, permanently.
  • Avoid pitfalls of real marriage forever.

…Until I sober up, and my wife is already gone.


It’s what we agreed to. But I don’t like it.


A year later, I find her. I have another solid plan to undo our mistake.


Only now, I’m not so sure the cocktail napkin with our prenup can protect me from the one thing I swore I wouldn’t do… fall in love.

5 out of 5 stars

Dirty Groom is the seventh book in the Slayers Hockey series by the fabulous Mira Lyn Kelly. I love this series so hard! Mira always gives us the perfect mix of humor, sexiness, hockey and friendship. The writing is top-notch and the characters are sexy and fun! If you read Dirty Christmas, you got a glimpse of Diesel and Stormy. If you haven’t, go and read that right now! You won’t be sorry! I love nothing more than a grumpy sexy hero and Liam Diesel is the perfect one. Diesel and Stormy met at a bar in Vegas, both running from something. So what do you do when you swear off relationships? Get married of course. Then Diesel wakes up and she’s gone. A year later he sees her and he really only wants one thing, a divorce. But sometimes you get what you need and not what you want! Stormy doesn’t want to be divorced. There are worse things than staying married to the sexy hockey player. What’s the harm as long as they’re both on the same page? Right? Oh boy! I loved Diesel and Stormy so much! He is grumpy, but he’s also sweet and Stormy is bad@ss. Together they made me laugh, had me cheering, and fanning myself! I loved getting to see my beloved Slayers players and I loved seeing more Noel! Overall, the series just keeps getting better and better! So much so that I can’t even pick a favorite!

Dirty Groom is the seventh book in the Slayers Hockey series by Mira Lyn Kelly. You can read each book as standalone since each one is a different couple. If you read Dirty Christmas then you will get more of Noel and Misty’s story and finally find out what happened in Vegas with Noel’s teammate, Liam Diesel.
It was Christmas Eve and two people who want to forget meet at a bar in Sin City. By the end of the night they are married with prenup written on a cocktail napkin. No real names. No phone numbers. Most women don’t want lies but she did. She didn’t want to know anything about her new husband. A man who treated her with respect. Who admired her strength. Who woke up alone after she snuck out of the hotel room the next morning. Stormy didn’t think she would ever see her husband again…
The moment he saw his wife he was not going to let her go. At least until she signed the divorce papers. He hadn’t seen “Jane Jones” in a year and it was just his luck that he saw her at the airport. A one-hour conversation turned into more talking and then it was too late, they were more connected in an unexpected way. Liam and Stormy make a deal. Love was not involved. They would go their separate way, with a end date. They had their reasons for not wanting a real marriage. Ever. To anyone. What they didn’t expect a year ago was falling in love…
These two!! They are badass, passionate, and so much fun! They also have pasts they need to fight against. I loved this story! The writing is top-notch, the characters are so lovable, and I can’t wait for more!
“Put her down, Nichols.” Maybe I’ll need to stay a while to make sure she’s okay.
“Oh my God, Noel,” Misty laughs, trudging through the snow behind him. “You are so extra.”
“One more, gorgeous. Give me one more, and then I’ll give you what you want.”
“Remind me of all the reasons why we decided this was a bad idea.”

Release Boost & Review – Taking the Fight, L.P. Dover

August 3, 2022 | Posted in Promo | By

Title: Taking the Fight
Series: Gloves Off – Next Generation
Author: L.P. Dover

Romantic Suspense, Sports Romance; MMA Fighters, Female MMA Fighter
Mafia Romance, Alpha Male, Dark, Edgy, Underground Fighting Ring, Sexy
Friends to Lovers, Best Friend’s Sister

L.P. Dover, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you the tantalizing Gloves Off series, presents Gloves Off – Next Generation. This brand-new saga of interconnected standalones unites new characters with beloved originals in dark and sexy stories laced with suspense!

Two months ago, everything changed. The enemy no longer feels the need to sulk in the shadows. Instead, he hides in plain sight and prepares his attack… against Reagan Jameson.

Reagan knew this day would come. She proudly holds the featherweight title and is known as one of the sexiest female fighters in MMA history. She can handle her own, and that’s exactly what she plans to do with Nikolai. Unfortunately, things aren’t as they were before. When given an offer she can’t refuse, Reagan is well aware nothing good will come of it.

They promised her power, prestige, and money… a world full of intrigue and dangerous desires. Not being able to resist the allure, she gives in and becomes a pawn in their game. She’s able to fool those closest to her into believing everything is okay… except for Braden Emerson.

Braden’s reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the circuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, it’s his skills that get him lured into the pit of danger. While he vows to keep Reagan safe no matter the cost, his desire for her is used against him. As passion ignites between the pair, they must work together if they hope to survive.

Fighting for a title is one thing, but nothing beats the stakes of fighting for love. This is one TKO that could cost them everything.


No cheating. No cliffhangers. Just hot, dirty-talking fighters who want to take you down to the mat.

5 out of 5 stars

Taking the Fight is the second book in the Gloves Off- Second Generation series by L.P. Dover. You do not need to read the Gloves Off series to fall hard for the second generation but you will want to! I do recommend reading the second generation series in order though even if not required. There is a storyline that will flow throughout the series.
Braden (Pax and Gabby’s son) and Reagan (Ryley and Ash’s daughter) have been on edge in their intense sexual tension since they were sixteen years old. Reagan is a fighter and it’s been the biggest fight to not take up Braden on all his flirty offers but she can’t risk her heart. Braden is a flirt and can’t be taken seriously but now at twenty-five he is done watching her walk away. He wants to prove to her that she is truly the only one he wants. The only one he needs. He knew it wouldn’t be easy especially now that he senses that she is hiding something…
Reagan didn’t want to keep secrets from her family and friends especially the man who has always protected her even when she pushes him away. But, it was necessary and she knew the minute she agreed to the terms with the enemy that she was in deep. She truly didn’t know how deep it was going to get and now she had to fight for not only freedom but love.
I knew these two were going to be so much fun but damn. Their banter, sexual tension, and passion is delicious all around. The storyline is full of suspense, enemies, friendships, and love. This series is full of the same and I can’t wait for the next book.
“I’m following you home. I told you that you’d be seeing a lot more of me.”
“Great,” I grumbled, “just what I wanted … you up my ass.”
Braden smirked. “Not my thing, sunshine, but I’ll make an exception for you.”
“You’re ridiculous.” My gaze locked on his backward hat. “You look stupid, by the way.”
Braden’s eyes twinkled. “You’re the only one who’s complained.”
Whenever Braden got close to me, I could feel the burn in my veins. Just watching him train put me on the brink of orgasm.
“Better watch out, she’s going to kick your ass.” She rushed outside to join Emma at the patio table by the pool.
“Don’t threaten me with a good time,” I joked. “I love it when she fires back at me. She does it every time; it never fails.”



Whenever Braden got close to me, I could feel the burn in my veins. Just watching him train put me on the brink of orgasm. What made it worse was when we would spar together. He’d always find a way to get me down on the mat with his body between my legs. That was why I refused to train with him alone. Then again, I’d never really gotten the chance to with so many people being at the gym.

Waving a hand in front of my face, I blew out a breath, hoping the heat on my cheeks would ebb. Once I had enough time to cool down, I grabbed the wedding portfolio on my bookshelf and quietly crept down the hall to see what Braden was doing. He’d turned his ball cap to the front, but I didn’t regret telling him that he looked stupid with it backward; it kept him on his toes. However, I honestly did think he was cute with it that way, but I wasn’t about to tell him that.

His focus was on a shelf on the wall lined with pictures, mainly of Peyton and me, but there was one of my mom and Braden’s mother together with their arms around each other’s shoulders. They were best friends.

“I bet my mom can’t wait for yours to get back in town. I don’t think they’ve seen each other in four months. That’s like a century in best friend years,” I called out.

Braden chuckled and turned around. “Is that how you are with my sister? It’s been a while since you’ve seen her.”

Peyton is my best friend, but I loved her like a sister. Nodding, I focused on the picture of Peyton and me on the beach, posing for the camera in our bikinis with the ocean behind us.

“I love her just as much as I love Emma,” I stated.

A smirk spread across his face. “Then what happened with me? Our mothers forced us together our entire lives and yet you hate me. What gives?”

Batting my eyelashes, I smiled back. “I don’t hate you, Braden. I just think you, my brother, and Ripp have the big-head syndrome. My cousin, Brooks, is excluded from this.” Brooks was the only one out of our group that was responsible. He chose to become an FBI agent instead of a fighter. Now he was away on an undercover mission, and I had no clue when I’d see him again.

“Big-head syndrome?” Braden asked, grinning slyly. “Are you saying I have a huge dick?”

I held up a hand, cutting him off. “I can’t with you right now. I’m talking about the disease you have where you think you’re all that.”

Braden thrust his head back and laughed. “And what? You think you’re not the same way? I’ve seen all the men who want you, Reagan. It’s hard not to when all they do is stare. You enjoy the attention.” He marched over and stood in front of me, his body so achingly close I could feel the heat radiating from him. “And don’t you dare say otherwise. We both know it’d be a lie.”

I did like the attention, even more so now that I’d won my title and had millions of followers. What I craved more, though, was his attention. There was never a lack of it, but I could never get enough. I wanted more than the verbal sparring that was common between us. My phone beeped with an incoming text, so I stepped back to distance us.

Emma: Where are you? Carter just put the burgers on the grill.

I quickly texted her back.

Me: On my way.

“We have to go,” I said, looking up at Braden. “What are we going to tell Emma when she asks why you’re with me?”

Braden’s lips tilted up. “She’s marrying my cousin, Reagan, and I’m the best man. We could always say we’re trying to conserve gas.” His gaze narrowed playfully. “You make it sound like there’s something secret going on between us. Am I missing something?”

“Nope. There will never be anything between us,” I claimed. “That’s wishful thinking on your part.”

Braden stared into my eyes and then down to my lips. “Whatever you say, sunshine. You know one day, you might regret not taking me up on my offers.”

I followed him out the door and locked it while he strolled down the stairs. “I’d rather be a nun,” I shouted.

He laughed the whole way to his car. Who was I kidding? I wouldn’t last a second as a nun.
