Release Blitz and Giveaway: Blocked by Elise Faber

Title: Blocked
Author: Elise Faber
Series: Gold Hockey novels (book 1)
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance

This is her shot.

Brit has the chance to make history by being the first female goalie to play for an NHL team, the San Francisco Gold. So, when she is introduced to Stefan, the Gold’s captain, she is determinedly not interested.

Stefan is sexy, charming, and has a publicly documented list of conquests a mile long. Brit is unwilling to risk mixing business with pleasure, even when that business is wrapped up in a six-foot-plus, gorgeously muscled package.

When management pushes Brit and Stefan together in an effort to gain good press for the beleaguered team, Brit finds that her carefully calculated disinterest doesn’t mask her body’s desires. The more she falls for Stefan, the more she risks her career.

Will she be able to have it all—a starting position and the heart of the captain? Or will she lose everything?

“I don’t really do the matching lingerie thing,” she said.

With a sigh and an eye roll, she walked over to him. “I’m not super girlie.”

“Like fuck you’re not.” He was practically sitting on his hands, so he didn’t grab her.

Her lips curved up, and she stopped less than six inches from him. Close enough that her delicate feminine scent coated the air between them.

“You know, I’ve never felt so powerfully sexy before,” she said, stroking a single finger down his shirt, pressing the column of buttons lightly into his skin and setting him on fire, “but hearing your voice go all growly… Damn, I kind of like the way you make me feel, Barie.”

Sweet baby Jesus, she was a menace.

“Me too,” he agreed, even though Brit was making his balls turn permanently blue.

And apparently, she had no plans to stop because she plunked herself down in his lap, leaned close, and pressed her mouth to his.

There wasn’t any preamble. This was hunger, plain and simple.

Blocked is the first book in the Gold Hockey series. I would give this book a 4 stars and definitely recommend to others. This is a hot hockey book with a twist.. This book does touch on a sensitive subject, but be prepared to be swooning over the main leading man Stefan cause he is hawt!

Brit the heroine is a hockey player on an all mens team.. This was her dream to finally make it to the big leagues and she won't let anything stand in her way. She knows what its like to play with men and be fawned over by men even hazed by the team.. But what she doesn't know is the meaning of being truly in love until the sparks fly when she meets Stefan the captain of her team. He has his own demons he fights on a daily basis but can these two actually have a relationship or is it all just for show??

Got get this book now you will not be disappointed! I hope there is more to come from this series because it certainly is left open for more.. Makes me curious whos book is next??!

Okay, we all know there has been a female goalie that played for the minor league (Tampa Bay Lightning's), but to have one actually called up to play in the NHL…I personally wish it would happen, but until that does happen, I will have to be satisfied with reading about it in fiction. And what a story it was! Blocked by Elise Faber was a great read and I loved the fact that the female lead was a strong woman who could stand tall against the bigger male players of hockey.

Winning her spot as backup goalie on the team was just one of the things Brit hoped to achieve, howeever, what she wasn’t expecting was the attraction (aka sparks) between her and the captain of the team. Before she knows it, people believe she is in a relationship with him off the ice and she is forced to fake it. But is it really all fake? She finds herself falling for him and she isn’t too sure how he will feel about her feelings. He has his own issues and is trying his hardest to help his team, but even he can’t deny there is something there.

Will they be able to work through it? Can she really have it all: her career and love? Blocked is four stars and I recommend picking it up. I can't wait for the next book in the series!!

Kudos to Elisa Saber on making a strong female character that still has a hint of vulnerability.

Brit is a female playing in a male dominated sport. Who here has seen a female hockey player in the NHL? She fights and wins her position as the backup goalie for the San Francisco Gold. And to prove she is one of the guys she even changes and showers in the main locker room, for a sense of team.

They test her, her first time on the ice, and she proves that she can hold her own. Stefan is the team captain and bent on bringing the teams image out of the gutter, where it resided after some scandal after last season.

A few random shots makes it seems like Brit and Stefan has a budding relationship off the ice and management tasks/blackmails her to make it seem as though her and Stefan do have a relationship; off ice.

The more she pursues this for her career the more she finds herself actually liking and enjoying Stefan's company. So much so that she thinks about putting her career on the line and being upfront about her proposition.

Can she have it all? Her career and Stefan? Get to one clickin' to find out.

Who doesn't love a good hockey romance? I know that I sure do! And adding in a female NHL hockey goalie? Well that made this amazing story all the much better for me! Blocked by Elise Faber is the first book in the Gold Hockey Series and I cannot wait for more! The story of Stefan and Brit is filled with lust, wanting, and secrets that threaten relationships. This book was a 3.5 star read for me and I highly recommend this series to others.

Stefan is the captain of the Gold and one of the most welcoming members to new comer back-up goalie Brit. Being the only girl on the team, a female in a primarily male sport, Brit has to work twice as hard and twice as long while also having a thick skin in order to be considered as good as one of the guys. Being called up from the AHL as the Gold's new back up goalie, Brit knows this is her chance to make it in the sport that she loves, that is in her veins. If she can only get past her fears and block the puck! What Brit doesn't anticipate is kind hearted all around good guy Stefan, who is anything but the womanizer he is portrayed as. When the team higher ups approach Brit with an offer she tries to refuse, it is the strings attached that have her reluctantly agreeing despite the fact that every cell of her being screams that it is a bad idea. What happens next, well you will have to read to find out if Brit and Stefan give in to their smoldering attraction to each other and whether or not she remains on the team or becomes the starting goalie. I can promise you won't be disappointed!

Aside from writing bestselling romances, Elise’s passions are chocolate, Star Wars, and hockey (the order depending on the day and how well her team — the Sharks! — are playing). She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise is the mom to two exuberant boys and is thoroughly addicted to Dancing With the Stars. Connect with her on facebook (, twitter (@faberelise), instagram (@elisefaber) or
