Three broken brothers.
Torn apart by tragedy and forever bound by traumatic pasts.
Thrust together once again when their paths cross in Seattle.
This long-awaited story of the third Wolfe brother introduces the Seattle Skookums baseball team.
Zeke Wolfe, the man who's written off his entire family, rescues a young woman and three children on a stormy Seattle night. Before he knows it, he has an instant family and a fake fiancé he's certain he doesn't want.
Paisley Madison dreams of having a real home for herself and her sister's children. When a handsome baseball player drops into her life, she knows a gift when she sees one and hires herself as his assistant.
As their business arrangement turns into something much more personal, Paisley and Zeke's pasts threaten to destroy their precarious hold on love. Can they conquer their demons and embrace a forever love, or will they run from their pasts and abandon their future together?
Read the first two Wolfe Brother's books:
Melting Ice (Seattle Sockeyes Hockey)--Isaac's story
Blindsided (Seattle Steelheads Football)--Tanner's story
Deep, thrilling, Emotional, Happy Love Him
Enjoyed the book immensely. Reading this book brought all kinds of emotions out in me. I cried, laughed and got angry at situations during this read. This can be a stand alone but having read the other books in the series I understood who some of the other characters were. Zeke is a dark individual dealing with issues many issues our children of today have to deal with. His goes a bit more severe. Having to live a lie for the public and maintain his sanity and play Americas Favorite past time sport can take a toll on ones mentality. Then he meets Paisley on a dark rainy night with her three nieces and nephews. Paisley is the ray of sunshine he isn't sure he wants to let into his life but his public image needs her. Can she bring his spirit back to him and help him heal from his troubled past? The children he doesn't want to love. Sadie is him but younger when her tragedies started. The girl breaks my heart. I cried a few times when she and Zeke connected. How can a 5 yr old break your heart just by smiling? Brayden, the reminder of what Issac truly was to his family. Sophie this ball of energy that you can't help but love because she won't allow you to not love her. After finishing the book I wanted to re read it. Jami Davenport is an amazing author. Her writings will made you envision what you read as you read it. I gave this book 5 stars but truly it deserved more. After reading this book if he haven't read any of her others you will definitely want to!
Bottom of the Ninth
This was a very anticipated book for me and Jami Davenport didn't disappoint.
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 hitting a deep puddle splashing water everywhere, including a now bedraggled woman and three small kids. Although tempted to keep going, he backs up to check on them.
Paisley has custody of her sister's three kids. With a broken auto, 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 and doesn't get involved. Against his better judgement he offers food and his home for the night, after all, they will be gone in the morning.
Bottom of the Ninth was 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 is based off an ARC I received from the author. I enjoyed the book so much I have preordered one for my collection.
Finally Zeke's story.
So what does a loner, angry anti-social, baseball star do when he runs across a soaking wet, tired woman and her three kids? Picks them up and takes them home, of course.
Zeke Wolfe is a star professional baseball player, who is in a slump and gets traded to a struggling team in a town he hates. Not a good week for Zeke. On his way home, in the rain, he turns a corner and inadvertently drenches a woman and her three kids. Zeke isn’t one to have a big heart and he doesn’t even like kids, but something makes him go back and check to see they are ok.
Paisley Madison, her nephew and twin nieces are down to their last $5.00, they are tired, hungry, homeless and now soaking wet. When Paisley’s car breaks down on the side of the road on a rainy night in Seattle she doesn’t know what she will do. With nowhere to stay, no money and no transportation she’s struggling to see the upside to her situation. When an expensive SUV turns the corner and sends a wave of water over her and the kids she is pretty sure she has hit rock bottom.
Zeke convinces Paisley to come with him, he will put her up for the night, give her and the kids a meal and send them on their way in the morning. Except he doesn’t. Paisley has other ideas, she convinces Zeke he needs and assistant and she is it. Zeke’s manager jumps on board and Paisley has a job, and a home for her and the kids. But when the team is bought by new management, and they want to highlight Zeke’s life and his relationships, Paisley takes on a new role as fake fiancé. But will Zeke’s hidden hatred of his bothers and Paisley’s past bring down their carefully constructed public image?
I liked this book, it was a great addition to the Game on Seattle series. Jami gave us some closure to the Wolfe brothers and we got to keep up with couples from the other books. There was even a wedding! I recommend this book, if you read the previous books or if you are just looking for a really good fake fiancé turned real story. You won’t be disappointed.
