Game On in Seattle - Seattle Sockeyes Hockey
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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?

Fell in Love with this Sockeye
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.
***I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
This is the next installment in the Seattle Sockeyes series and is Cedric and Bellian's story. Before reading this book I wasn't a huge fan of either of these characters, but after this I have been converted.
Bell and Ced are just having fun, hooking up.. But that isn't what Ced wants any more. He wants to have a relationship and he wants it with Bell. He is tired of the partying all of the time and the random hookups. Bell, doesnt' want a relationship because she doesn't feel she is worth it and no body stays anyway.
But when Bell's world is shaken one night she runs straight to the only person she feels safe with, Cedric.
This book is the journey of Bellini and Cedric discovering that they are both worth it and they are the best when they are together. I now understand more of the reasons behind all of the insecurities of both these characters and why they have made the choices they have. Bell is a strong woman and Cedric only enhances that. And Cedric, well he is a hot hockey player with a big heart and who can resist that?
There were interactions from all the Maxwell sisters as well as a few peaks at the Wolfe brothers and things to come I think.
If you have read any of the Seattle Sockeyes this is a must read. I enjoyed this book, it was funny in parts and very touching in others. I would definitely recommend it.
This is book # 7 in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. I recommend reading this amazing series in order - so you do not miss out or have spoilers.
Bella and Cedric have a kind of on and off again thing. He is now stalking her just to keep up with her whereabouts. She certainly is just as attracted to him as he is to her. It just keeps getting hotter and hotter between them.
The love story here is just so fantastic! There are sweet moments of tenderness, there is also tough love. It is a great book and good addition to the series. I cannot wait to read the next book.
