Bulldozer by P. Dangelico
Release Date: November 12th
Bulldozer, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by P. Dangelico.
Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock. Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day. The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life.
Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench. The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all-around football god has officially hit rock bottom. A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him that the next hit could leave him paralyzed. All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.

For a beat we stare at each other, neither of us voicing the undeniable truth that
something is happening between us. Something deep and real and scary.
He pins me to the side of the pool, his arms framing mine, and leans closer. I can’t
pry my eyes away from his lips, full and slick with water.
“You make me want to try,” he quietly confesses.
I’ve told myself a thousand times to stop thinking about the way he looks at me. Or
that he’s so sweet with Sam it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch those two
interact. Or that Roxy fell hard and fast in love with him from the outset and everyone
knows dogs are the best judges of character.
I’ve told myself to stop staying awake at night wanting him but he makes it nearly
impossible. His eyes fall to my lips and I swallow, goose bumps breaking out from my
hairline to my toes.
“Try what?” I ask in an equally quiet voice. Reaching out, I dare to run my
fingertips over the short beard from the side of his face to his chin. His thick lashes
beaded with water flutter shut.
“Be a better man for you.”
“You’re the best man I know already…nothing to try for.”
“You keep at it like that and I’m going to kiss you,” those perfectly shaped lips
murmur. It sounds like a threat and a promise and part of me hopes it’s both.
About P. Dangelico
Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

Wade had everything he could ever want in life...then he lost it. Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found. Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back. Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC. Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away. With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality. But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.
“No, Wade,” I snarled. “It’s not just that easy.”
He frowned. “What are you talking about? I realize that it’s tough, and it’s going to hurt, but baby, this is your sister! Your sister is your family. Your blood. You can’t just leave her in need.”
That was when I felt everything inside of me still.
“The first time I donated bone marrow to my sister, I was a toddler. Barely the age of two and a half,” I said, almost in a whisper. “The second time, I was four. The third? Seven. Do you see a pattern, Sergeant?”
Wade frowned and tilted his head to the side, confusion spreading over his face.
“My parents had me to be their donor baby,” I whispered. “They never wanted me. I was never allowed to be a child. I was a useful object to them.”
Wade looked startled. “What do you mean by not being able to be a child?”
I laughed maniacally.
“I’m saying that I was bred to be their baby’s saving grace,” I hissed. “And I’m not doing it anymore. My sister is an asshole. My father’s a conniving bastard, and my mother is the biggest bitch known to man. Don’t you think that there’s a reason that I’ve never spoken of them?”
He looked at me like I was crazy. “Honey, you told me that you had a falling out. But this is your sister.”
I looked over at where my sister was sitting out on the front porch, silently crying her big, fat crocodile tears.
She’d always been good at them.
There was a time when I was younger that all she had to do was get that look on her face, and I’d be scared shitless.
Because if Lina wasn’t happy, nobody was happy, least of all me.
There was always going to be hell to pay if a single tear fell down Lina’s perfect cheek.
Lina also looked like a little China doll. She had perfect blonde curls, soft, milky white skin, blue eyes the color of a crayon, and she was tiny.
I, on the other hand, was none of those things but short.
I had brown hair to her blonde, brown eyes to her blue, freckled skin to her perfect complexion, and when I tried hard, I was also skinny.
Except, lately, I had been drinking beer and having the time of my life—living it like I’d always wanted to live it.
“I won’t do it,” I refused again, sounding petulant now.
I knew he didn’t understand.
Deep down, Wade was a really good man.
He’d experienced a lot in his life. He was a cop and had seen some very bad things.
But, what he did not have, was a bad family.
His family was awesome. His mom was the best mother in the whole world, and his dad was the kind of father I’d only ever dreamed of having when I was younger.
God, even his brother was the best.
He had no clue what it was like to hate your family like I did.
Hell, the only reason he hadn’t heard of them sooner was because my sister hadn’t gotten sick enough to need me.
Had she, Wade would’ve learned the truth about who my family was a hell of a lot quicker.
“I’m going to tell her that you’re thinking about it, and we can discuss it more later, okay?” Wade offered. “I don’t want you to make any hasty decisions because you’re overreacting.”
A lot of this book had me going back and forth…Okay, so first of all – if my house burned down and it was some nutjob…I would lose my crap. Landry just batts an eyelash. Her daycare place is burned down and she just stays strong. Now, I don’t know about you but I would be losing my everloving mind. I loved the book, don’t get me wrong. I love almost everything LLV writes but you have to suspend belief on some of the things that go on. I do that and I enjoy it most of the time. I just had a hard time believing that a grandmother went over the rails that quickly for her daughter with no thought to her grandchildren and I work in the field of crazy. It was an enjoyable read though!!

"I Bet You is a charming, sexy, funny and downright swoony romance set amongst all of the delicious fun of college football in the South. It's damn good." Mary at USA Today HEA
"You find me someone better that writes football players... I'll be waiting because you'll never find better than Ilsa." We Like Them Dark, Goodreads
"I Bet You is enemies-to-lovers GOLD. I devoured this funny, feel-good perfection in ONE DAY!" Dylan Allen, Bestselling Author
I don't remember Ryker from Book 1 but I loved him in this book!! I loved Ryker and Penelope together. I thought that it was going to be another football book that left the hero a reformed playboy, however, this one was a little different because he was already a really sweet guy from the beginning of the book. Now, he might have been a jerk in the first book but in this book - he was pretty spectacular. I loved reading about his inner thoughts and the things going on in his head. What I didn't like was that little prig Archer. Was I the only one hoping he'd hit a tree while drunk? No? Well I did...So, that must make me a horrible person. I would give this series 5-stars so far.
