Avery is a horse trainer trying to make her own way doing what she loves.
Between families, teammates, emotional baggage how can these two come together....
Let me just start by saying WOW! I absolutely loved this book! I have never read anything by this author and now I'm wondering how I missed out. This was a story that was so easy to immerse into. The characters are absolutely believable and easy to connect with. The plot flows and carries you along to perfection. You find yourself growling, laughing, and tearing up all in one great book. The connection between Isaac and Avery is hot enough to meet a hockey rink! This was a fantastic read and one of the best HEA I have read in a very long time. I can't wait to pick up the rest of this series.

Isaac is the typical jerk in the beginning but as he and Avery grow closer and closer, he becomes so much more.
Jami Davenport is a great writer and I really enjoy this series, which I wasn't sure if I would based on the early book covers (I know, don't judge a book by it's cover). If you're on the fence because of the cover art, don't be. Pick them up. They're great books.
Isaac is a bad boy of hockey. He recently got traded to the Seattle Sockeyes and this is basically his last chance to play hockey in the NHL even though he's only 26 and an amazing player. He's not happy and gets to rent a house next door to this farm. The first day at his house, his dog escapes and runs over to the farm where Avery works. He chases after the dog and meets Avery. It's clearly lust at first sight. They have a lust filled moment like no other time before them.
The next day, Avery sees her sister Izzy who warns her to stay away from her new neighbor, Isaac. Isaac meets the captain of the Seattle Sockeyes, Cooper who finds out he lives near his sister-in-law to be and warns Isaac to stay away from her. Isaac doesn't want to ruin his chances with this team as he realizes if they don't want him, he's out of the NHL. He immediately goes to see Avery to tell her they can't tell anyone what happened, when she beats him to the punch.
However, neither of them can get the other out of their minds. They agree to be strictly friends. When he travels with the team, Avery watches his dog, which gives him an excuse to contact her every day. You're able to watch this beautiful friendship grow. There are also several subplots that keep you going and wanting more. Eventually, Isaac decides he wants more from this relationship and has to approach his team's captain to get his blessing because he doesn't want to lose his job. He gets his blessing and can finally ask Avery out on a "normal" date.
I loved this book! You actually got to see this bad boy's ice melt around him. I loved how they had this great friendship growing before it jumped back in to anything more. I loved how there's some wonderful happy endings in this book. I hope the author has plans for Avery's twin sister because I can't wait to read that book!
I loved Ice and Avery's story. From page one, Isaac became by BBF, that closed off rough, bad ass, leave me alone I don't care attitude, hiding all that pain just pulled me in. And Avery, she was the perfect person to cut through it all and see the 'real' Ice. It was a match made in Seattle. Jami did an awesome job of moving their relationship. There were points when i just 'knew' what was going to happen and when it didn't, I was surprised in a very GOOD way. The scenes between Ice and the team were realistic and well written. I was pulled into the locker room as if I was sitting on the edge of my seat.
Having read all her books, I have to say, Isaac and Avery's story is by far my favorite so far. It left me hungering for Blindsided and the Chrismas story, wanting to know what will happen with Tanner and Emma, Blake and Sarah. To find out whether Isaac and Tanner can 'ever' be brothers.
If you have considered purchasing this series, I highly recommend it, as well as her other ones. Jami will pull you in to a world you won't want to leave.
1) At the start of the story, we learn that it's 13 minutes before the New Year. After tending to the horses, Avery thinks how she's lonely. Her sister, Bella, calls to wish her Happy New Year. Bella is at a party with a new guy named Julio. She recommend that Avery find herself a man and get horizontal for a while. It might help her relax. They hang up, and Avery mulls over that thought. Not another mention of New Year. Why not concluded her thoughts by ending with her wishing herself a better new year? The owners of the farm were setting off fire works. Why didn't the author finish the circle?
2) At 10%, Ms. Davenport is TELLING me how attracted Wolfe is to Avery and vice versa. I don't feel a single tingle. She could have taken the time to SHOW me how they were feeling, but she didn't. It's one of the things I'm not enjoying about Ms. Davenport's writing.
So, I'm done. She's got a lot of potential, but not if someone doesn't help her.
