    Ninth hour

    This is the 6th book in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading this series in order. Paisley meets Zeke at the last of her rope, sanity, and dollar. Not meeting under the best of circumstances, they do not give the best impressions. Still, not one to leave a damsel stranded Zeke comes through. Zeke did not know that helping the damsel meant his house would soon be overrun by children and one seriously sexy woman. Since they both have secrets from the past that may come to cause problems, can they help one another? This was such an amazing book! I loved the slow burn, and this book turns up the heat! Seriously great addition to the series. Lots of surprises in store for the reader. Includes some favorite characters. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

    Sports Romance. Love, Drama, Sas.

    Enjoyed the book immensely. Reading this book brought all kinds of emotions out in me. I cried, laughed and got angry at situations during this read. This can be a stand alone but having read the other books in the series I understood who some of the other characters were. Zeke is a dark individual dealing with issues many issues our children of today have to deal with. His goes a bit more severe. Having to live a lie for the public and maintain his sanity and play Americas Favorite past time sport can take a toll on ones mentality. Then he meets Paisley on a dark rainy night with her three nieces and nephews. Paisley is the ray of sunshine he isn't sure he wants to let into his life but his public image needs her. Can she bring his spirit back to him and help him heal from his troubled past? The children he doesn't want to love. Sadie is him but younger when her tragedies started. The girl breaks my heart. I cried a few times when she and Zeke connected. How can a 5 yr old break your heart just by smiling? Brayden, the reminder of what Issac truly was to his family. Sophie this ball of energy that you can't help but love because she won't allow you to not love her. After finishing the book I wanted to re read it. Jami Davenport is an amazing author. Her writings will made you envision what you read as you read it. I gave this book 5 stars but truly it deserved more. After reading this book if he haven't read any of her others you will definitely want to!

    Boss/employee turned fake romance that's not fake

    Bottom of the Ninth is a sports romance mixed with a single aunt who has taken custody of her sister’s three children. The book incorporates a down on her luck woman with a rich baseball player but both have experienced traumatic childhoods. Starting off as a boss/employee romance it turns to a fake romance but things aren’t quite so fake. The book completely captured me from start to finish with the strong plot and likeable characters. As a big fan of sports romances, this book didn’t let me down with expectation after loving the sound of this from its blurb and knowing Jami Davenport’s work already. Also, be assured, it can be read as a standalone despite being book 6 in the series; I personally haven’t read any of the previous books in this series. Zeke and Paisley have an incredible attraction and chemistry as these two people with tough pasts find themselves having to face up to the poor hand life has dealt them but finding that maybe together things may finally improve for both. There is an instant attraction but as the book progresses it turns to a steady build up of the relationship between them before things get rather heated. The dual perspective helped develop and create these complex characters further and I personally loved reading both Zeke and Paisley’s interactions with Paisley’s two nieces, Sophie and Sadie, and her nephew, Brayden; the kid’s playing an integral part of this story. Bottom of the Ninth is a well written sports romance that is steadily paced. The book has a good balance with enough drama and tension that bubbles along throughout to keep things interesting and the reader guessing to how thing would work out, including some surprising events at the end of the book that unravel the final underlying issues raised over the course of the book. Only thing that bugged me a little was how worried Paisley was regarding her circumstances and how public they behaved; just felt a little contradictory. Not a big thing but a niggle. In terms of the sports elements, I can’t comment on the accuracy of any baseball details talked about or described as I don’t follow it personally; as a novice, it read fine the small references and could easily enough be followed. However, don’t be put off if you aren’t into sports because the book is so much more than that and very easy to follow along. Personally, I loved that we got an epilogue that left you feeling fully satisfied with the HEA and that all ends had been tied up. Overall, if you are looking for a brilliantly written contemporary romance or sports romance, definitely give this book a read. I really enjoyed it. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

    The best kind of emotional rollercoaster!

    This is the next installment in Jami Davenport's Game On In Seattle series and it was one I had been waiting on! We have gotten to know the Wolfe brothers in previous books in this series, but Zeke was the brother we knew the least about, however we knew that the last thing he wanted was anything to do with his brothers. When Zeke is traded to Seattle's bottom feeder professional baseball team, he's less than thrilled because he wants to be on a winning team, but he also hates the fact he's going to be in the same city with the brothers he's trying so desperately to avoid. On his first night in town, he comes upon a woman and children that are on the side of the road due to a broken down car. Against everything he thinks he believes, he takes them back to his home since they have no where to go. Will picking up these strangers change everything about his life? Paisley Madison has had a tough several months. Her sister died and in order to keep her nieces and nephew out of the system, she has temporary custody of them. As a young woman herself, the last thing she expected was to be a mother to three vulnerable kids or to be homeless and basically penniless too. When Zeke takes pity on them and takes them back to his house, a light at the end of the tunnel begins to glimmer when Paisley realizes that she might be able to "create" a job for herself as Zeke needs a personal assistant in the worst way. As Paisley and the kids begin to settle in to Zeke's new house, they also begin to worm their way into his head and his heart. Will this stubborn man who does not think he's worthy of loving, or of being loved, be swayed by this pseudo family that is being created? There is so much emotion, love and heartache in this book. I laughed, I cried and I empathized with what the characters were going through. Jami Davenport created a story that was not only engaging, but also believable. It was one that when I started reading, I didn't want to stop! I'm looking forward to the next book in this series! **ARC provided by the author for an honest review**

    Home Run

    I have been waiting for Zeke's story and I wasn't disappointed. Reading this book was like visiting family in Seattle. Zeke is such a good man he just doesn't see it, he can't care for anyone or believe anyone can care for him because of the mental and physical abuse from his father. He believes he is his father's son and will hurt anyone close. Paisley is in survival mode needing to put a roof over her dead sister's kids heads. The love story between Zeke and Paisley (and the kids) is rocky, just as rocky as Zeke's troubled relationship with his brothers. I enjoyed this being a baseball book with lots of baseball in it. This book is well written (as all of Jami's books are) and the characters so well developed, I feel like they are part of my family. Easy to recommend this book and can't wait for the next one.
