Shot on Goal (Game On in Seattle Book #11) by Jami Davenport
Shot on Goal - Jami Davenport

Jami Davenport lights the lamp with SHOT ON GOAL, the eleventh book in the Game On in Seattle series. Hockey star Drew Delacorte and former Olympic figure skater Marina Sanders are broken souls. This is their story about what caused their troubles and what is in store for their future. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

I adore Drew and Marina. They have a complicated past. They are both broken and get what the other is going through. They are both very human. They have made mistakes and must live with the consequences.

I appreciated that Marina was given an opportunity with the Sockeyes. She is a tough individual with a lot of talent. Drew and his parents are living with the ghost of Drew’s dead brother David. Drew is being smothered by his parents and no longer enjoys life until Marina makes him smile again.

I like that the story was realistic. The characters face a lot of difficult decisions and make hard choices. Things don’t always turn out how they want. This novel is an excellent example of how one mistake can impact your life. Unexpected things happen. I like how the story was resolved. Furthermore, I love that the Sockeye’s make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. There are some great hockey scenes. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Release Blitz w/Review - Shot On Goal

 
These two professional skaters are about to meet their match.
Shot on Goal by Jami Davenport is available now!
 
 
 

When you're at the top, there's nowhere to go but down. Two talented skaters. Two bright futures. Two shining stars. One ruined by a career-ending scandal and another by a father's ruthless ambition. She was the darling of the winter games, winning a bronze in pairs figure skating one week after losing both parents in a car accident. He was the future of the Sockeyes hockey team crowned the best young player in the league and heir-apparent to the hockey throne once occupied by his father. Together they're fire and ice, and when things get that hot, they melt. Can these two broken souls find comfort and courage in each other's arms or will they find only pain and regret?

 

 

 

 

 

Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle Book 11)Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #11, in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this incredible series in order.

Drew and Marina have a complicated history. With a lot of tragedy in their pasts in common, they bond on the current love of hockey and all that it means to both of them. Drew has finally figured out what he wants - and it is Marina.

Marina has had a long climb back to the opportunity she has been given for this great team. She cannot afford to lose it by being attracted to the sexiest man she has ever seen. With all that they have between them, she is shy to give even herself a chance.

This book was such a slow burn, I honestly almost put it away and gave up. I will be completely honest with you. It was close. The burn in this book builds and builds with conflict and intense heat, that it actually became this author's best work for me in the end. I loved the characters, the series, and the subject. Totally great read and I highly recommend! I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Shot on Goal (Seattle Sockeyes, Game On in Seattle #11) by Jami Davenport
Shot on Goal - Jami Davenport

 

 

Being the best does not mean that you lose yourself in the shuffle. It means staying true to the person you are, not the person others want you to be. Davenport lays it all on the line with Shot on Goal. In the midst of the bright lights of fame and the expectations of others, Marina and Drew just want to be happy. At their lowest, through identity crisis and the scandal of the spotlight, each has to tackle painful truths. Is this the life they really want or could there be something more fulfilling waiting on the horizon? Shot on Goal is an experience in soul searching. It's painful, insightful and uplifting. Realistic entertainment.

This one gets 5 stars, 5 teary tissues and all the feelz from me...
Goal Line - F. Scott Fitzgerald,V.L. Locey

I’ve been crazy about this series from the word go and have loved each book more than the last one. I was honestly at the point where I thought my love for this series was maxed out but nope, I was wrong. This one…this one blew my mind and blindsided me with what has happened…I seriously did not see any of this coming…especially not the tears. My poor hubby came in from taking the dog for his morning walk to find me clutching my e-reader with soggy tissue in hand mumbling “dammit they made me cry!” He patted me on the shoulder and simply said “It’s been known to happen honey.” and went to make his morning tea…with my response of “Not when it’s a freakin’ hockey story. It doesn’t.” well, I was wrong apparently it does.

 

And that’s all the tear talk that we’ll be having today except to say that there were happy tears and sad tears and frustrated tears and some really pissed, angry tears and that’s the end of the tear talk.

 

‘Goal Line’ is puts us back inside the crease as we meet and spend time with fellow Canadian Bryan Delaney. The latest addition to the Railers and back-up for Sven the Railers totally adorable bigger than life Russian goalie. Bryan’s life hasn’t been the greatest, but he’s worked hard to get where he, is in spite of the obstacles he’s faced. Leaving his home in nowhere Canada at the age of 15 he found the beginnings of the family he should have had with his billet family before being drafter to the Raptors and can I just say that it’s a good thing he lived in Nowhere, Canada because I seriously want to get my hands on his parents…they do not deserve to be Canadian and we need to deport them to…the bottom of the ocean sounds good so let’s go with that, ok? I really came to love Bryan and at times his sense of insecurity and lack of self-worth more than anything were what brought me to tears, so the love and positive support that he received from Gatlin were like a balm to my soul. Bryan brought out my mother instincts practically from the word go and I have my milk and cookies ready for him.

 

For Bryan the Railers are a whole new creature when it comes to hockey teams as far as Bryan can see and he’s more than a little lost as to how to fit into this new and different team and when Sven takes him to get some new artwork for his helmet Bryan’s in for one more surprise when he meets Gatlin. Gatlin takes one look at Bryan and sees the history of sadness, heartache and insecurity that Bryan’s tried so hard to hide from the world and all he wants to do is to bring something good into Bryan’s life.

 

When Bryan gets drafted to the Railers he’s leaving behind more than a hockey team…he’s also leaving behind his first love affair…thank heavens because this one’s toxic city.

There’s a bit of an age gap between Gatlin and Bryan and while I’m ok with age gaps but still not a big fan of them. This one worked really well because of his age, Gatlin had the calm and maturity to be the supportive person that Bryan needed…these two men fit together effortlessly in my opinion and I so enjoyed their relationship…it worked really well for me. That’s not to say that they didn’t have some challenges to get there just that I had no problem believing that they would.

 

I think one of my favorite things about this book…actually about the series in general is how much we get to see of the characters from the previous books. It’s like getting a bag of my favorite candy when this happens in a series. I have such a weakness for this and because this story is based around a sports team it would honestly be bizarre to have it any differently.

 

‘Goal Line’ turns out to be a huge game changer for this series and one that I think will be as surprising for other fans of the series as it was for me, but I’m so on board to find out what happens next.
