Release Blitz & Review: Penalty Play


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?

I am a sucker for single dad stories.  This one hit all the markers for me.  Single dad, adorable but a bit unruly children, opposites attract relationship and oh, yeah,  a hockey team as well! 

Loved Matt to pieces.  Trying hard to do the right thing by his boys but maybe missing out on life in the mean while.  He has been burned so he doesn't want to jump into anything blind.  Violet has been on his periphery since they have mutual friends.  She is so far out of his comfort zone, he isn't quite sure what to do with her.  Circumstances bring them closer together and the sparks really start to fly. 

Violet is fun and quirky but to me Matt makes the story.   I enjoyed seeing the relationship build after the sex was out of the way.  Trust is what it all comes down to--right?  It was great to see Matt's teammates again from previous books.

Great story!
