Game On in Seattle #5
By: Jami Davenport
Releasing June 15, 2015
USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport presents another Seattle Sockeyes hockey romance and the fifth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series showcasing alpha male heroes of football, baseball, and hockey.
Brimming with attitude and broken beyond repair, Isaac "Ice" Wolfe has a heart as cold as his nickname, and he likes it that way--until he meets his neighbor Avery Maxwell. Avery is unlike any woman he's ever known. Her smile thaws his frozen heart. Being with her heals his broken places. She makes him feel, and for Isaac that's not always a good thing. Isaac has burned every bridge in his professional hockey career. When he's traded to the Seattle Sockeyes halfway through their inaugural season, he knows he won't get another chance. He's never been a team player, yet he needs to become one--and fast.
Avery has only wanted one thing in her life--to train and show horses. Her decision to drop out of college to pursue her riding career causes a rift with her big sister, but Avery is tired of following everyone else's dreams. Now she's following her own, and no one is going to distract her from her passion--until she meets a dark stranger and his cantankerous dog.
When Isaac is warned away from Avery by the team's captain, who happens to be Avery's future brother-in-law, Isaac sees the writing on the wall. It's Avery or his career. To Isaac, a life without hockey wouldn't be a life worth living. But what about a life without Avery?
Do Isaac and Avery sacrifice their life's passions for their mutual passion for each other, or do they fight to have it all, even if by doing so, they might lose everything in the end?

USA Today Bestselling Author Jami Davenport writes sexy contemporary and sports romances, including her two new indie endeavors: the Game On in Seattle Series and the Madrona Island Series. Jami lives on a small farm near Puget Sound with her Green Beret-turned-plumber husband, a Newfoundland cross with a tennis ball fetish, a prince disguised as an orange tabby cat, and an opinionated Hanoverian mare. She works in computer support in her day job and juggles too many balls, but she wouldn't have it any other way.
I am such a sucker for a hero that hasn't had it easy and this book was one of those reads. At first I thought Ice was a real asshole but as the story of his past is revealed little by little I just wanted to hug him. Only the right woman could make him want to be a better man.
I really liked this book had a fair amount of hockey scenes and it wasn't like a lot of sports romances out there who limit those scenes. I believe that those scenes should be included in he books along with the lovey dovey stuff. It makes it more realistic.
When Ice first sees Avery he can't keep his eyes off her and the connection is between them is strong. They have sex in the barn and They agree it can only be a one time thing. Slowly the start to become real close friends and Ice starts to open up to her. Avery didn't have a easy life either but with Ice by her side they are working through things together.
I enjoyed the characters and the challenge of these two characters getting over there past and looking forward to the future they both want and deserve. Although this was a quick read and I wanted more I ended up feeling satisfied by the end of the book. The story ended just how I thought it would along with them getting engaged.
I can't wait to see who the next book is about!
