Down by Contact

(The third book in the Seattle Lumberjacks series)
A novel by

Seattle Lumberjacks linebacker Zach Murphy is a beast of a player, and he's about to capture the heart of the beautiful Kelsie Carrington-Richmond. 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 both those times have passed. Her Finishing School for Real Men has a real shot, and the Seattle Lumberjacks have hired her to polish up 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. Reviews: "Having read more than a few sports romances, I can honestly say DOWN BY CONTACT is by far the best. Grittier, earthier and possessing a heart-wrenching emotional depth many others lack, Zach and Kelsie's story was one I didn't want to put down."--Manic Readers "Down by Contact is in my top 10 of awesome sport romances, Ms. Davenport ranks right up there along with Jaci Burton, Rachel Gibson and Jill Shalvis."--HEA Romances (5 Stilettoes and Recommended Read) "Jami Davenport's books just keep getting better and better."--Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick) "This story had my emotions going for a rollercoaster ride. I have read a couple of football romance stories and I have to say this has surpassed them all. The emotions that the characters portrayed were felt deeply by the reader."--The Romance Reviews (Top Pick)
