A hot, sporty, good guy, what more do you need? Nothing! Except what you see isn't always what you get. Under the surface looks and fake smile, a damaged man can hide.
Zeke is a hot shot baseball player who is traded to Seattle as his performance on the pitch had been less than stellar. He has 2 estranged brothers, both of which play professional sports, (hockey and football), living in Seattle. The story behind their strained relationship is cause for much of the drama in the book. Paisley is doing it tough, caring for her sister's three young children. Zeke and Paisley are thrown together, but their relationship is not without complications, Zeke being the biggest obstacle in loves path.
This was my first Jami Davenport book, so diving into Bottom of the ninth I was slightly nervous as it is the first book in a spinoff series. I am happy to report that
although characters from previous series do feature, Bottom of the ninth is a standalone.
I enjoyed this book. The characters had depth and the story was substantial, however I feel the darker aspects of the story could have been drawn on to a greater extent to give more of a punch. There were times when the story was dragging on, then the ending felt slightly rushed.
I look forward to reading more books in the series. Sully is a bad boy I want to know more about!
This is the sixth in the series - and I would absolutely recommend that you read them all and in order ... however, this could be read as a standalone, but you would miss some of the ongoing plot-lines and relationships. What I found to be really special, and requires a talented author to achieve, is that although I did not have time to reread the previous books, there were strong reminders of previous events that just prompted me enough, without repeating everything. It was really fascinating to see another side of the Wolfe brothers' story.
Zeke and Paisley (along with Sophie, Sadie and Brandon) are the stars of this story. Their unexpected meeting and subsequent employer/employee relationship show us that Zeke's claims about being heartless are somewhat overstated, and that Paisley is all about getting the best for her charges, and will not let this opportunity pass. Her behaviour could grate on the reader, but actually she is a good person and selflessness is the ethos by which she lives, so it is easy to forgive her. Watching the children unfreeze is very precious, yet not overdone. All in all I just enjoyed every page. There were some really moving moments, some dramatic ones and some very hot and steamy ones. There was plenty of sport time, plenty of development for other team members, and we got to see the Maxwell sisters and their men too.
Highly recommended - a really good addition to the series. Looking forward to what happens next!

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.Read more ›

Zeke plays first base for the Seattle Skookums and is known as the nice guy of the team meaning he is not a “player”. In fact some people actually think he is gay.
Paisley is trying to start a new life in a new place as guardian to her 2 nieces and nephew after her sister is murdered and her sister’s husband is currently in jail. The teams PR people and Zeke's agent come up with a plan they think will be really good for Zeke's reputation and that is for Zeke and Paisley to pretend to be a couple. Will pretend become real? Paisley sure wants it to, but does Zeke? Can he handle it?
Zeke and one of the 5-year-old twins, Sadie, have a bit more tragedy in common than either of them realizes. Together this whole family will heal and find love. It’s a beautifully written story with great character development of both our main characters and supporting characters and as always is not just a perfect fluffy love story. There are some definite growing pains here for Zeke with Paisley, the kids and his own brothers and that makes it all the more wonderful when they make it through to the other side.
Awesome read from Jami Davenport!
Zeke is the youngest of the three Wolfe brothers. Raised in an abusive home, he is emotionally unavailable and unhappy with his recent trade to the last chance Seattle Skookums pro baseball team. He is also unhappy to be playing in the same city with his two pro athlete brothers whom he has avoided for many years.
On his first night as a resident of rainy Seattle, he cuts a corner and hits a deep puddle splashing water everywhere, including a now bedraggled woman and three small children. Although he wants to keep going, he backs up to check on them.
Paisley has custody of her deceased sister's kids and has traveled to Seattle to stay with family, but is not welcomed once she gets there. Now with a broken car, cold, wet, hungry kids and five dollars to her name, she is out of options and has no where to go.
Zeke is a loner. He doesn't like kids. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't get involved. Against his better judgement, he offers them pizza and his home for the night, after all, they will be gone in the morning.
Bottom of the Ninth is a well told story with no 'hangers'. It can be a stand alone book but the Wolfe brothers relationship is developed in earlier books. Enjoy!
My honest, unbiased review was based off an ARC I received from the author, but I enjoyed the book so much I ordered the book for my collection
Zeke hates Seattle mainly because he has to be in the same city as his brother's and their new families. Driving home one night in the rain he comes across a woman and 3 children in a broken down car. Despite, his nagging suspicion his life will change, he does the right thing and stops and helps.
Paisley has obtained custody of her dead sister's 3 children and has lost it all. When she meets Zeke she ingrains herself into his household and his heart even though he fights it every step of the way.
Zeke and the children have more in common than Paisley can believe, both have had abusive father's, both have survived but walk each day with their scars and horrible memories.
This is a great final installment in the Wolfe Brother's story. Without giving it all away I will say there are ups and downs and of course a happy ending but how it gets to the happy is a long journey.
I would definitely recommend this series of books, even if you don't like sports. I love that the Maxwell sisters from the previous books are back in full force.
I purchased this Kindle download at full price and am providing this review for informational purposes only.
As Zeke and Paisley and Co. pretend to be a family, Zeke is also unhappily reunited with his real brothers who play hockey and football in Seattle. The story revolves around his brotherly dynamics while at the same time, his broken soul falling for the woman he found on the side of the road.
I'm a big fan of Jami Davenport and this may have been my favorite book so far. I loved the little gypsy group of Paisley and the kids that Zeke found. While the kids ended up wrapping themselves around Zeke's little finger, they did the same to me! I was rooting for them from the beginning and found myself in one of those odd positions of wanting/not wanting the book to end!
Zeke is my favorite of the Wolfe brothers. He's damaged and he's not afraid to tell his brothers he hates them, even if he's supposed to be from the perfect family. He meets Paisley by accident when her car breaks down and he ends up getting her soaked driving past.
Their story is cute, although Paisley is kind of...difficult. She decides she will be a part of his life and makes it happen, even though all he wants is to send her on her way.
Nice story. Looking forward to the next one!
