Backfield in Motion by Jami Davenport

Yesterday I read Backfield in Motion by Jami Davenport, the fourth installment of her Seattle Lumberjacks Series.  I have been waiting a while for this book and I am thrilled it is finally here!

Without further ado….here is the blurb for Backfield in Motion.
“All you’ll ever be is a pretty face… Star running back Bruce “Bruiser” Mackey has heard those words his entire life, especially after his twin brother’s tragic accident. He might use his surfer-boy good looks to land lucrative endorsements for his secret charity, but he hates books being judged by their covers. Which is why it’s wrong that his friend Mackenzie Hernandez is intent on giving herself a makeover.

Sure, Mac and her father have been reeling financially since her brother disappeared three years ago, and Lumberjacks management gives an annual scholarship that might get her life back on track, but he can’t imagine anyone smarter, sexier, or more beautiful than Mac already is. He can’t keep his hands off her—and the more they spend time together, the less he wants to. She’s perfect as is. One way or another, he’ll make sure the team’s tomboy greenskeeper gets a full ride. And between the two of them, they can learn to accept what’s behind them and look downfield to a future full of win.”

This is a story of proves that you cannot judge a book by its cover.  From the “Asshole” with a damaged heart of gold to the tomboy who is hot not only on the inside, but outside too. This book has you believing that everything is not always what you think they are at first glance.  I give this book ❤❤❤❤❤! 

One thing I love is that Bruiser helps with kids like his brother so they do not meet the same fate.  I love Mac’s loyalty to her father and the love and support she gives him.  I can’t say much else without summarizing the whole book and revealing too much.  

There is the reading order for the Seattle Lumberjacks Series:

1.  Fourth and Goal
2.  Forward Passes
3.  Down by Contact
4.  Backfield in Motion  
5.  Time of Possession (Early 2014)
6.  Roughing the Passer (Spring 2014)

Just in case you can’t get enough of the Lumberjacks…..then I have great news for you!  Jami has a spin-off series in the works called “Seattle Lumberjacks–The Rookies”.  The first book in this series, Christmas Break, will be released in November 2013.

Thanks so much, Karen, for the great review. I’m thrilled that you loved Mac and Bruiser as much as I did.
