Bad boy quarterback Tyler Harris plays ball for a living and breaks hearts for a hobby.

 

With two championships in as many years, Tyler is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he's at the top of his game. Women love him. Men want to be him. Only Tyler's not feeling the love. In fact, he's not feeling anything at all. Licking his wounds after a scandal and a breakup with his long-time girlfriend, he retreats to a run-down mansion on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, Tyler is blindsided by the sassy redhead next door. He knows that he's met his match and possibly his soulmate. There's one problem. She despises him.

 

Lavender Mead has a good reason to dislike jocks, namely an absentee father who deserted the family to coach college football. Maybe that explains her penchant for bad boys -- especially those who play ball. Her new neighbor seems just that type. Yet Tyler's not the shallow superstar she expected, and she's inexplicably drawn to football's bad boy. The two are so hot together, they're combustible.

 

As the clock ticks down, can they commit to each other forever? Or will they both fall short of the goal at the last minute?

Blurb:

 

When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, champion Thoroughbred. In order to save the farm and fulfill her dying mother's wish, Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan’s Thoroughbred has to beat Hunter's horse in the Derby, an easy enough feat until her heart entered the race.

 

Lilli McCoy, Hunter's sister, has been burned by men before, but she'd believed her last boyfriend was The One. He wasn't. He couldn't deal with Lilli's disability and used her blindness as tool to cheat on her. Reeling from the betrayal, Lilli returns home to lick her wounds. She hadn't factored in the instant attraction she’d feel for her brother's playboy teammate, Cameron Swift. One playboy in her life should've been enough.

 

game-changer_teaser2

 

EXCERPT:

 

 

Hunter turned to regard the woman staring at him as if she’d never seen a man before. Per usual, he waited for a sign, but nothing happened. No thrill of recognition of his soul mate. No quickening of his heart. No sense that he’d finally come home.

 

Nothing.

 

This woman was not The One. Not that he expected her to be, but he prided himself on being open-minded.

 

She approached him, and her blue eyes glinted with the single-minded purpose of a linebacker pursuing a quarterback. Hunter braced himself, ready to politely dismiss her, though he doubted she was the kind of woman easily dismissed.

 

Perhaps she was a football fan. Hunter always had time for fans. As one of the few Native American football players in the league and a member of a Coastal Salish tribe, he was sought after for interviews, photo sessions, and as a role model for tribal youth. He did his best to meet every request as part of his campaign to further the average person’s understanding of Native American culture.

 

He smiled and held out his hand. “Hello, I’m Hunter McCoy.”

 

She didn’t exactly smile back. Instead, she looked him up and down as if she were assessing him for strengths and weaknesses.

 

Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan.” She shook his hand, her grip surprisingly firm for such a slight woman. He sized her up. His well-honed instincts warned him she’d be a formidable opponent. She was attractive but not classically beautiful by society’s standards, though Hunter had little use for such crap. She wasn’t tall, but she took advantage or her every asset from perfect yet subtle makeup to burnished reddish brown hair that curled around her shoulders.

 

Hunter stifled a surprising urge to bury his fingers in her hair. She didn’t look like a woman who’d be interested in a one-night stand, nor was she his destined mate. She actually looked like the uptight, get-ahead-at-all-costs type. Everything about her reeked of money. Hunter didn’t care much for her type, even if his libido seemed slightly interested, but then right now it was interested in any woman.

 

That’s your horse?” She pointed at Seastrong, known as Sid around the barn.

 

Hunter puffed up a little with pride. “Yes, he is.”

 

I’m interested,” she said, getting right to the point.

 

Hunter frowned. “Interested?”

 

In your horse.” Her impatient tone indicated she considered him some sort of moron.

 

In what way?” Hunter wasn’t sure he understood what she was getting at. He had a trainer, and she didn’t look like a groom, not with the quality clothes she wore.

 

I’d like to buy him?”

 

Hunter threw back his head and laughed. “He’s my Derby horse.”

 

Her jaw tightened. “Name your price.”

 

I have fifteen investors. Even if I wanted to sell, they don’t.” That wasn’t entirely true. Every one of his investors would sell if he wanted to sell. They were comprised of teammates, athletes on other Seattle teams, and a few team management types. None of them had much interest in horse racing, short of showing up at the Kentucky Derby and standing in the winner’s circle. Accomplishing that feat was a long shot in itself, but Hunter had a good feeling about this horse, and so did Lilli.

 

Everyone has a price.”

 

He thought about that for a second. “I don’t. He’s more than a horse to me. He’s a member of the family. My sister would be heartbroken if I sold him. They have a connection.”

 

Skepticism crossed the woman’s beautiful face. “Maybe I should be talking to your sister instead.”

 

It won’t do you any good. She gets very attached to her animals.”

 

I want that horse.” Kate appeared to be one of those women who wasn’t used to hearing the word “no.” She narrowed her eyes and studied him intently. He studied her right back.

 

That horse is not available. One doesn’t sell a member of their family.”

 

She snorted, as if she considered his statement ludicrous. One more reason he’d never sell to her.

 

Hunter shot her one of his best panty-melting smiles, just for the hell of it, to see if he could melt her icy demeanor. He wasn’t conceited, just confident and self-assured. He was a professional athlete in his prime. Women flocked to him. Some of them got closer than an autograph, but never for long.

 

Hunter didn’t waste much time dating the wrong women. Kate was the wrong woman.

 

And Sid was not for sale.

 

 

 

 

Game Changer: Seattle Steelheads Football (Game On in Seattle, #7)Game Changer: Seattle Steelheads Football by Jami Davenport
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #7, in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. I recommend reading series in order for reader enjoyment and understanding.

This book was surprising. More than I expected was inside. I also felt like the characters were a bit flat at first, but it may have been just me. As the story got on, I found myself rooting for the main couple.

Hunter & Kate hate each other nearly from the beginning. We all know that hate is near a fine line. The attraction is there too. Kate is kind of blinded by a one track mind. Hunter seems equally blind for a bit as well. This series is always so much fun.

Game Changer: Seattle Steelheads Football (Game On in Seattle #7) by Jami Davenport
Game Changer: Seattle Steelheads Football - Jami Davenport

Jami Davenport is “in the money” with GAME CHANGER, the seventh book in the Game On Seattle Series.  In the previous books, Seattle Steelhead's tight end, Hunter McCoy, talked a group of his friends into investing in a race horse. He finds himself intrigued with Kate Vanderhof, the owner of his horse’s biggest competition.  Simultaneously, he is being an overprotective younger brother to his blind sister, Lilli.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

I like Hunter.  He is proud of being a Native American, and he is a good role model.  I wasn’t sure what to make of him in the previous books, and I loved hearing his story.  At first, Kate seems like an unlikely match for Hunter. The more they learn about each other the more compatible they discover they are.  They come from different backgrounds but have similar values.  Both love horses.  They both want to do good for others. 

 

I love Lilli.  She has an amazing personality and outlook on life.  Instead of being bitter about becoming blind, she lives her life to the fullest and does not let her condition hold her back.  She has numerous degrees, is an accomplished professional, and skilled equestrian.  I have known people that have had various disabilities and overcome them.  They are so confident that you forget about their condition.  It is an admiral quality. 

 

I really enjoyed the plot.  It was unique, and it had a lot going on.  I like that the characters from the previous book in the series, are investors in the horse and are included in this novel.  I enjoyed the horse-racing aspect to the story.  The football scenes were well described.  There were interesting conflict and resolutions.  The ending was perfect.  GAME CHANGER was an amazing addition to the Game On in Seattle series.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Teaser Blast - Game Changer





Game Changer by Jami Davenport is coming on FEBRUARY 28th!
 
 
 
 


When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, opinionated race horse.

Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan's family has raised champion Thoroughbreds on their Kentucky bluegrass farm for over a century.Lately the farm has fallen on hard times, but Kate is determined to return OakBrook to its former glory. First, she must satisfy an odd clause in her grandfather's will. She's been given five years to produce a winner of horseracing's biggest prize of all, the Derby, or lose the farm to her siblings and their development plans. Time has run out, and Hunter's talented horse stands between Kate and her last shot at the Derby. Only Kate never counted on her heart entering the race.

Hunter is juggling his responsibilities to his two-dozen investors, his blind sister, his football career, and his commitment to his tribe. The last thing he needs is an unwanted attraction to a spoiled rich girl who doesn't fit into his carefully crafted plans. Not only are they rivals on the race track, but she doesn't understand or appreciate his dedication to his Native American heritage. Yet despite the odds, all bets are off when Hunter and Kate find themselves in a relationship they can't resist.

With the stakes much higher than the Derby purse, can these two long shots win the biggest race of their lifetime or will their hearts finish out of the money?
