~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is another great addition to the Seattle Sockeye series - The Maxwell sisters are once again in the fore, both with Issy's wedding to Coop, but most importantly with Bella's story. She is the youngest, and wildest of the girls, and has some very poor opinions of herself, which she glosses over with her party girl behaviour.

One fateful night however has a serious impact on Bella and Cedric, the hockey player who has been chasing her for a while. They try to redefine what they mean to each other, at the same time as Bella tries to recover ... and all without getting proper help. The whole issue is dealt with very carefully by Ms Davenport, and she has written a brilliant character in Cedric. As the story unfolds, the two of them move forward and it would seem that their player days are over.

We get plenty of news about the rest of the team, and the Maxwells, including unexpected news from Fawn. All in all a delicious addition to the series. If you haven't read the others yet, I would recommend that you read them in order - you will not regret it!

SYNOPSIS:
As the wild child of the family, Bellani Maxwell isn’t interested in settling down. Between a fledgling party crashing business, teaching self-defense at a martial arts studio, and hitting the bar every night, she has her hands full. She doesn’t need the added responsibility or commitment of a relationship.

Hockey star Cedric Pederson has all the puck bunnies he could ever want, but a chance encounter eighteen months ago leaves him with eyes only for the gorgeous, free-spirited Bella. Too bad she isn’t interested in what Cedric has to offer beyond frequent hookups, and he’s grown tired of their on-again, off-again non-relationship. He wants to be all-in or all-out.

When a brutal attack leaves Bella in need of comfort, protection, and healing, the only person she wants is Cedric. But once she’s living in his condo, Bella is confronted with a decision she’s been avoiding—can she finally commit to Cedric, or will she let him go one last time?

MY THOUGHTS:
This is the first book I have read in this series and even though I didn’t know the back story from the previous books, I was able to follow along just fine.

Bella really had a struggle to come through not only with the physical aspect of her assault, but a psychological struggle that she felt was beyond what mental strength she had. She was ashamed of herself for thinking that her martial arts skills were superior and looked down on her students that she taught self-defense to. She was embarrassed that she couldn’t protect herself and felt even worse that she put herself in danger. Even though a therapist was recommended on more than one occasion, Bella was too stubborn to talk to anyone, not even her family. Bella wanted to come through this on her own. She felt she put herself in danger and needed to learn to heal herself. She was also learning how important Cedric was to her.

Cedric was amazing. He stood by Bella even when he felt she should reach out to her family. Due to his worry for leaving Bella when he was on road trips, his game suffered. He finally confided in his best friend and fellow teammate about Bella’s attack. The catch with that is, he was married to Bella’s oldest sister. Bella’s secret would be out, but that is a consequence he could deal with because he felt she needed the extra support. He had fallen in love with Bella and couldn’t get her to commit to an exclusive relationship. He had been trying to get her to commit for months, but she wasn’t interested, but felt she was worth waiting for. Cedric was patient, kind, responsible and much more nurturing then Bella could have ever imagined. She thought Cedric was like her, a pretty party boy that had no interest in settling down. How wrong she was.
Cedric and Bella worked at making their relationship work for them even though their parents weren’t good role models. Bella’s parents raised 4 daughters and mostly left them to their own devices because they were too busy with their music career. Cedric came from a cold but very rich family that showed no love toward Cedric. His father constantly made him feel like a failure even though he had made it into the NHL. His mother cowed to his father. They did have role models in Bella’s sisters and Cedric’s teammates for relationship advice and they wanted what those couples had.

This book is about growing up, finding yourself, learning to believe in yourself and your goals, coming out of self-doubt. Learning to love yourself and others when you think yourself unlovable. Bella and Cedric were able to have an HEA, and Bella was wiser and stronger with the love of her sisters and her biggest supporter, Cedric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Game On In Seattle book 4 May 2016
By Miss Kay - Published on Amazon.com

Jami Davenport writes great stories. That's really all you need to know - you could pick up anything she's written and I feel like you will enjoy it.

I read the entire Game On in Seattle series in a week, then had to wait ever so impatiently for this one to be released. I was not disappointed.

This is the story of Cedric and Bellani. The only problem I have is that Bellani's name changed after the first two books she was mentioned in, from Bethani to Bellani. The author did put a note at the beginning of a different book explaining the change was to better suit the character, although I'm still not sure how the name change did much other than confuse me for awhile.

I was worried about reading this book because there is a warning about a brutal attack in the story. I still read it, including the attack, which wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. All in all, it's a great addition to the Game On series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another hit for Davenport! 30 April 2016
By Heather F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bellani Maxwell has always been the free spirt of the four Maxwell sisters. Their party crashing business is a perfect fit for the wild child who also enjoys dabbling in martial arts, but most of all, she loves men and more specifically, she's always love 'em and left 'em. She's not interested in a committed relationship even though a certain hockey player has caught her attention on more than one occasion.

Cedric Pederson is a hockey player who Bella has gotten to know through her sisters and their significant others since they are teammates of his. While Cedric has desires of spending time with Bella not only between the sheets, but out in the real world as well, the fiery woman doesn't see the appeal - she just wants to continue to sleep with him with no strings attached.

When a bad decision leaves Bella in a vulnerable position and she is brutally attacked, the first person she thinks to go to is Cedric. Of course the Swedish hockey star is more than happy to help the woman he's come to care so much about and initially he agrees to hide her secret from everyone else, but is that the right decision in the long run? Will Bella ever be able to put the attack behind her and get back to living life? And, more importantly, will Bella ever believe that taking a chance on a forever love with Cedric is worth the risk?

Jami Davenport does a fantastic job dealing with a very serious issue in this book. You see the repercussions of what the attack not only does to Bella, but also to the man who loves her and has to be exceedingly patient with her. These are characters you want to root for and you just hope they can make it out on the other side. Kudos to Davenport for this well crafted tale!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 6 May 2016
By Catherine E. - Published on Amazon.com

Wow, this book was amazing! Bellani and Cedric finally get together and we get a glimpse of the third Wolfe brother. I was initially concerned about the attack part of it didn't bother me. How Bellani rises from the ashes of her assault to be a stronger, better person is incredibly empowering. This book really does standalone even though it's part of a series. All you learn is previous couples are still together, which is assumed because all these books are HEA books. Highly recommend this series, especially this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cedric And Bella's fairytale 28 Jun. 2016
By Stacybarr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What an amazing story of love and tragedy with an awesome ending. Two people who love the free life, have commitment phobias as well as personal issues. To see them come together when tragedy strikes one and find that with each other they can over come anything. Having read the other books in the series I have followed Cedric and Bella's history and I am so happy for their story to have come out. Women sometimes replace sex as a comfort tool, this describes Bella. Cedric finds comfort in the "party". They both know deep down that's not really who they are. I love Jami Davenports writings. I have all of her sports romance books. This can be a stand alone book however I recommend her other writings. They don't have to be read in order but I recommend it.
