My rating: 4 of 5 stars
PENALTY PLAY: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey is book nine (wow..NINE!) in the Game On in Seattle series and is a complete standalone, no worries about being confused at all. It’s an opposites attract/enemies to lovers/contemporary romance with a bit of hockey thrown in (though it doesn’t overwhelm the romance). Jami Davenport did a great job writing a story that made me laugh, cringe, swoon and yes, shed a few tears. I absolutely love the opposites attract trope, especially when it’s the lady involved who’s the “bad” girl and the guy’s the “good” one. At first glance, Violet fits the bad girl persona…she’s tatted, pierced and dyed (loved the purple hair)! As we get to know Vi, it becomes obvious that there’s more to her than meets the eye and even if her bohemian ways seem a bit wonky, she’s really a good person. Matt, of course, is Vi’s opposite…he’s conservative, strict, guarded and in the very beginning, I wasn’t sure I was going to like him but I quickly got over that! These two had crazy chemistry that pulled them together like a siren’s song but it’s actually their contrary personalities that kept them in sync. Overall, this is a charming, lighter read with quirky characters and an enjoyable plot. Told from dual POVs with a sweet ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Opposites attract…are you ready for the heat?
Penalty Play by Jami Davenport IS NOW AVAILABLE!
Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.
Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.
Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?
