Goal Tending - Jami Davenport - Release Blitz & Review


Hot Single Dad ALERT!
 Goaltending by Jami Davenport is now Live!



WANTED: Single dad needs nanny--In more ways than one.

Martin "Brick" Bricker is living the good life. He's playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously--except hockey, of course.

Then a knock at his door changes everything.Suddenly he's the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn't know he had, and he's trading his playboy ways for Barbies.

Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she's offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she's in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl's hot single father.

Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn't want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life.If they fit at all.

But one thing's for sure: Brick can't block this shot straight to his heart.


4 Stars 

Goaltending is the eight title in the Seattle Sockeyes series, but can easily be read as a standalone.  Featuring Brick, a single dad who finds himself in desperate need of a nanny and Amelia steps in to save the day. 

Brick is your stereotypical athlete, he is the epitome of a player, and plays hard both on and off the ice. He's arrogant, cocky, and ego driven and very much a people pleaser.  At first I found his character to be a bit unlike-able, but he grew on me throughout the story and as the story progresses the depth to his demons and vulnerabilities is revealed. 

I found Amelia to be completely endearing.  A character of strength, and determinations she says what she thinks and doesn't let Brick get away with treating her or his child like a commodity and demands respect. 

Brick's five year old daughter Macy is completely adorable and sassy. 

This story is a thoroughly enjoyable emotional, and fun filled read.  I really enjoyed the character development particularly for Brick.  The banter is fun and flirty and the characters share great chemistry.  For the majority I really enjoyed the side characters, particularly those from the sockeyes.  The ending was really lovely and I look forward to reading more of Jami Davenport's work in the future.
