Review + Giveaway ~ Down by Contact (Seattle Lumberjacks #3) by Jami Davenport

It's showtime.

After twelve years in the league, all Zach Murphy wants is a Super Bowl ring. He’s been about hard hits not smooth manners, about breaking quarterbacks not making small talk at cocktail parties. But now he’s shattered something else. After dumping a tray of drinks on the team owner’s snooty daughter and accidentally feeling up the Governor’s wife, his tenure with his team looks perilously short. And things are getting worse.

Life is looking up for Kelsie Carrington-Richmond. A onetime beauty pageant star and mean girl, she only recently stopped living out of her car. But those times have passed. Her finishing school for real men has a real shot, and the Seattle Lumberjacks have hired her to polish their roughest player.

Except…it’s Zach. Long ago she broke his heart. He’s just the beast she remembers—gruff, protective—but she’s nothing like the beauty from his past. Yet, getting knocked down happens, and getting back up makes a contender. And they both have the hearts of champions.
This third installment was my introduction to the Seattle Lumberjacks; this is a standalone story. Although, the author mentions previous characters; the books can be read out of order without spoiling anything. I love to discover a new sport romance. There is no shortage of well-known authors with amazing sport romance series, but I like to sample authors that are unknown to me. I could not pass up the opportunity to review Jami Davenport’s latest release. The characters are refreshing and captivating, and the romance is without limitations. I will not include any spoilers but, I reread the gala scenes several times - is the most emotional bit of crazy I’ve read in a while. This author has earned a new fan…!
