  • Great offering in this series!

    Jami Davenport's sports themed books are right up my alley. I so enjoy reading sports romance and I didn't get into Jami's books until well after her original football books were released, so this is my first time reading them, and I'm glad I have the opportunity! Bruce "Bruiser" Mackey is the running back for the Seattle Steelheads. He's a looker and he's got all of the endorsements to back up that fact and to capitalize on his good looks. He's also got a heart of gold, but Bruiser does a great job of trying to hide that piece of himself behind a facade. Mackenzie "Mac" Hernandez is a groundskeeper at the Steelheads facilities and she's also had a crush on Bruiser for the last few years. Mac and Bruiser have a great friendship and enjoy being around one another, especially on the nights the team all hangs out at their favorite spot. She's applying for a scholarship that is awarded by the Steelheads organization and in order to get more time with an important executive, Mac asks Bruiser if he'll take her. While seeing Mac all cleaned up puts some stars in Brusier's eyes, he realizes that he likes dressed down Mac as much as the dolled up version. Mac and Bruiser don't seem to have a lot in common on paper, but when you really get down to it they do. They both have family situations that have weighed heavily on them and they both battle their own insecurities about relationships and life in general. When the two begin a "friends with benefits" relationship, they battle those aforementioned insecurities and some other forces that are throwing roadblocks in their way. Will they finally make it to their HEA? I enjoyed the way this book unfolded, although there were a few times where I wanted to shake both Bruiser and Mac. I felt like things were right in front of them and they were just SO stubborn! This is another great offering by Jami Davenport and I would recommend it as a summer read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Entertaining

    4 star Review Draw Play : The Originals (Seattle Steelheads #4) by Jami Davenport I love Jami Davenport’s style of writing; her books are always entertaining and she delivers a well written story. This is a friends to lovers story that drew me in and kept me riveted throughout. Bruce “Bruiser” Mackey and Mackenzie Hernandez’s story is one that ticked the boxes for me. Underneath his good looks, is a kind and caring man who will do whatever he can to support his friends and raise money for his secret charity. This was at times an emotional roller coaster of a read, particularly as the details of Bruiser’s brothers accident unfolds. Both Bruiser and Mac have emotional baggage which they both try to keep to themselves. Can they overcome their pasts and find a lasting love with one another? I loved that the relationship grew from friendship. This book was exactly what I've come to expect from Jami Davenport, it will make you laugh, it will make you cry,but oh how I loved it and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

  • Secrets

    Bruce AKA Bruiser Mackey is a running back for the Seattle Steelheads and is good at what he does. On the surface he's a charmer, a pretty boy that does a lot of underwear ads and anything else he can for money. Is there more to him than than what you see? Then we have Mackenzie (Mac as she's known by) Hernandez who works for the Steelheads organization as a groundskeeper while also working on a degree in Horticulture. She has crushed on Bruiser for several years but she's just seen as one of the "guys", a tomboy. She is also trying to win a scholarship from the Steelheads Organization so she can finish her degree and needs to go to a charity event so of course she asks her buddy Bruiser to take her. Several of the teams wives/girlfriends come to her rescue and help her get ready for the event. Bruiser doesn't recognize her at first and is shocked, she's beautiful. They fall into a friends with benefits relationship and Mac ends up falling for Bruiser. He doesn't believe in marriage or even relationships. Why can't we just stay the way we are? Both Bruiser and Mac have had tragic events happen in their lives. Both need to work through their pasts so they can move on. Can Bruiser open up and tell Mac about his past and can Mac put their relationship first? Can they help each other through this or will family come first and tear them apart? Secrets! Can they learn to trust? Oh so many questions to be answered. I enjoyed seeing how his teammates supported them and can't wait to read the others stories. I enjoyed this book. I received an ARC of this book for an honest review

  • Not my Favorite

    This is not my favorite book of Jami Davenport, but it was entertaining. Loved Bruiser Mackey's name and loved the fact that he was kind of snarky one minute and sweet the next. I visualize him with a perpetual smirk on his face. I liked his teasing of Mac and also him dealing with nasty Veronica trying to help Mac win the Steelheads' scholarship. I liked the fact that Bruiser tried to help Mac with her demons and that Mac tried to figure out and help Bruiser with his.
