 Decker Brand has spent the past four years earning back his man-card. He’s got the calloused hands, the dirty jeans and the toned body to show for it. Now that he’s satisfied with whom he is he intends to stay true to himself even if it means remaining alone. 

Lingering glances, Soft touches, Shallow Breaths… 

April Maddox thought she’d lucked out when she found her prince at the early age of sixteen. Unfortunately, their kiss turned him from king to croaker right before her eyes. 

Forsaken and cynical, she fears all men will leave her with warts before hopping off to another woman’s lily pad.

Smooth strokes, Light nips, Gentle tugs… 

When it comes to relationships, they say timing is everything, and everything has its time. 

History has played a part in Decker’s and April’s desire to give up on love. Fate will bring them together. It’s up to them to battle the outside forces, life’s interruptions, and daily dramas… together. With a little faith, they can undo everything that’s been…

Deckerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I love you!!! 

I’ve been a fan of Lisa N Paul’s since I read the first sentence on Thursday Nights. If she wrote me her grocery list, I’d read it. But seriously, Lisa knows how to write a love story. She sucks the reader into the story where I felt like her characters were my friends.

Decker and April have lived a life before meeting each other and an always easy one. But they are determined to do better the second time around in love. Decker is an owner of a construction company where he can’t sit behind a desk and loves to be in the mix of the action. His first wife couldn’t understand that desire.

April is a sweet school teacher whose high school sweetheart husband couldn’t keep it in his pants. She will fight to never have that feeling again. She will protect what is important to her.
This story had all the feels for me but most importantly, it had laughs. I seriously laughed out loud, getting looks from my family, laughed while reading some scenes. The sexual tension between these characters could be felt throughout the whole story.

Bravo Lisa for giving us another amazing story that I will think about for months. This sexy, funny read should not be missed.   

Lisa N. Paul has done it again! Blocked is charming and heartwarming with just the right amount of drama to keep you entertained. I tore through this story page after page and enjoyed every second of April and Decker's story.

Our heroine April is goodhearted, but that loyalty can easily be taken for granted leaving April's heart trampled by someone she trusted. Despite the turmoil, she's resilient and is determined to be the best version of herself for the ones she loves. Decker knows what it's like to have the weight of the world bearing down on you. He's experienced tragedy but tried to find the silver lining instead of drowning in loss. Plus he's mega sexy. I loved the connection these two shared. It was genuine and built throughout the story. Watching their romance unfold made me smile and fall deeper in love with these characters.

Page after page the story lured me in and held my attention. You can't help but get swept away in this fictional world Lisa Paul has created. I want to spend a Thursday night at Danny's with these incredible characters. There was plenty of angst and drama but it wasn't the overwhelming kind. It kept me engaged without making me feel like I was drowning. I loved the balance between the heartbreak and gentler moments. 

Get your hands on Blocked and meet the always sexy and irresistible Decker Brand. You'll be hooked from the prologue and swoon until the very end.  


Portrait of kissing very attractive couple

Decker could practically see the dimples forming in her cheeks as her giggle tickled him through the line. “Well…” He cleared his throat. “I hate to admit this, but your mother wasn’t altogether wrong, babe. I had no intentions at stopping with just one kiss.” Even though they’d been flirting and chatting for weeks, tonight was their first official date. While it was obvious that April was as attracted to him as he to her, he didn’t want to scare her off, but he also wanted her to know he was no Boy Scout. The way she had his blood churning… mmm, one kiss would have been a mere appetizer.
“I’m glad to hear that, big guy,” April cooed, her voice honey smooth but sinfully sexy, “because I would have been disappointed if one kiss was all you had to offer.”
Decker pulled the phone from his ear and looked at the screen. Yeah, it was still lit and connected to April Maddox. No, he wasn’t dreaming. The woman was sexy as sin. He closed his bedroom door, kicked off his shoes, and sauntered over to his bed. “April”—gravel and heat filled his tone—“will you let me kiss you now?”
Brief silence met his ear—no words, no breath—until she answered in a whisper, “Yes, Decker, I’d love for you to kiss me now. How do you plan to do that?”
The certainty in her answer, mixed with the innocence of her question, had Decker’s cock hard as steel and begging to be released from its confines. “Do you trust me, April?”
A moment of time passed before she stammered, “I-I don’t know.”
Her honest response came as a bit of surprise. He’d never asked that question and received an answer other than “yes.” The truth had him grinning; Ms. Maddox was a smart, sincere woman who told it like it was. He hadn’t earned her trust yet, but he was going to.
“Deck, I didn’t mean—”
“No, April, your answer was honest, and I respect that. So here’s my honest answer—I like you, a lot. I’m not a liar, a cheater, or any of the things that fathers pray their daughters stay away from. I have no intentions of hurting you, and right now, in this moment, I just wanna make you feel good. Now, will you allow me to do that?”
“Yes,” she murmured.
“Go to your bedroom, beautiful,” he ordered.
“I’m already there, big guy.”
While he couldn’t picture the room, having never been to her house, the thought of her surrounded by a huge bed and her flawless skin draped on smooth sheets had him unbuttoning his jeans as he spoke his next demand. “Perfect. Now peel off that sexy top of yours. Just the hot little V-neck, honey. Leave the bra alone, and lie down. And April, keep those incredibly long fingers off your body until I say otherwise.” The sharp intake of breath he heard followed by the soft hum gave him the incentive to continue their game. “Are you lying back?”
“Yes, Decker,” her voice turned husky as she responded. “My shirt is rumpled on the floor, my head’s resting on the pillow, and I’m laying here wearing just a lacy green bra and my jeans.”
“Mmm,” Decker rumbled while he removed his shirt and edged back on his mattress. Her breasts, so firm and round, had teased him all through dinner in that tight black top, and now imagining them in nothing but green lace… his hand grazed over his denim-clad dick. First her, then you, he thought, repeating his motto over in his head. “Close your eyes, April.”
“Decker—” His name wasn’t a question but a plea.
He knew she was letting him in, and he wasn’t going to let her down. “Shh, you said you’d let me kiss you. Now, trust me and close your eyes.”
“Okay,” she murmured, “they’re closed.”
His voice thick with desire, Decker closed his eyes as well and began to instruct April through the most erotic kiss of his life. “Good. Now imagine me beside you, our bodies so close, the heat of my skin warming yours as I lift your chin so I can look into your eyes.
“Imagine my breath, April, a hint of chocolate, sweet and close, caressing your skin with a promise of things yet to come.” With each word Decker’s heart skipped faster, but when he heard her shallow breath, his pulse began to race.
“Keep your eyes closed, beautiful, and lift your left hand to your face. Just before you touch your cheek, rotate your wrist so it’s your knuckles that stroke your skin. Start by your ear, and slowly drag your hand down your jawline. That’s my touch you feel on your soft skin, my knuckles that are making your breaths quicken.”
“Now, move the index finger of that same hand across your silky-soft bottom lip. Do you remember how it felt when my mouth claimed yours? When my tongue breached your lips and slid into your warmth? Fuck.” Decker groaned as the images he painted came alive in his head. “Let me feel your tongue, beautiful. Lick your finger for me.”
“Oh, Decker,” she whimpered, “Christ, how the hell did you do that?”
