Seattle Lumberjacks–The Rookies #4.5
New Adult Contemporary Sports Romance
As a college football star and a waitress stave off cold loneliness through one hot holiday break, a passion begins that will carry them both all the way into the NFL.
Striving to escape her past, reformed party girl and biker chick Aubrey Harper finds herself tending bar over Christmas break. Then her secret crush walks into the pub.
Star football player Braxton Davis has his own reasons for not going home, and when loneliness drives him to a bar near campus he finds tough-girl Aubrey mixing drinks and serving smartass comments. After one look, the two know they won’t be spending their Christmas alone. After a mysterious and devastating text message and a burnt hamburger lead to dinner, dessert, and two nights of passion, the rest of their lives look promising as well. This relationship is going all the way to the bigs.
I read another novel by the author, Jami Davenport, and I was anxious to see if she could create the same level of heat and emotional depth in novella format. And….she did!!! It was a great read. My heart broke for Aubrey and I was cheering for Braxton. I can’t wait to read more of their story.–Cocktails and Books (5 stars)
