Crashing the Net by Jami Davenport and my review!

Hockey star Cooper Black and professional party crasher Izzy Maxwell return in this sequel to Crashing the Boards.
Jealous boyfriends and glitzy parties can be a recipe for disaster. When the gorgeous yet controlling Cooper interrupts a party Izzy was paid to crash and almost ruins her career as a professional party crasher, Izzy kicks him to the curb. She learned early in life not to count on anyone, and she will not relinquish her independence, not even to a sexy-as-sin pro athlete who can melt her heart with one wink.
As the Sockeyes hockey team opens their inaugural season in Seattle, Cooper finds himself minus a girlfriend and plus a surly teenaged nephew. Cooper doesn’t want to be a surrogate dad, he doesn’t want to play in Seattle, and he doesn’t want to be alone. He misses Izzy, but seeing her with other men at parties turns him every shade of green. Regardless, he wants her back, and he’s willing to change, if only she’ll give him a second chance. Aware of her precarious finances, Cooper makes an offer she can’t refuse by hiring her to be responsible for his nephew when he’s traveling with the team.
Fearing Cooper isn’t capable of changing his control-freak ways, Izzy resists his efforts to turn their financial arrangement into a personal relationship. He needs a sweet, docile girlfriend, and Izzy cannot be that woman. Yet, when tragedy strikes, Izzy is there when Cooper needs her the most, and love has a way of getting what it wants, no matter the circumstances.

My Review:

I fell in love with Izzy and her sisters as soon as I met them. I hoped we would get more of the stories and Jami Davenport doesnt disappoint at all!

Cooper and Izzy are so alike in some areas. They both want to be in control of their lives at all times and neither knew how to let go. Enter Riley and both their lives get turned up side down. For me Riley is the hero of this story!

Jami wrote a perfectly wounded child who is mature beyond his years but still has that adolescent hope. I was thrilled to see Riley didnt do a 360 personality change, it was gradual and flowed the way you would expect.

Izzy learns she needs to let go and live her life and Riley helps! Its amazing when someone from the outside sees your life so clearly!

Cooper... Wow, poor Cooper, I wasnt really sure what to expect with him but Jami managed to put the poor man through the ringer. His personal growth and absolute emotional roller coaster was brilliantly written and I was so involved that I cried, I laughed, I cheered and OH did I hold my breath!

Oh dont forget the hot sex!

Amazing story and I am so excited to see where this journey takes everyone! There are so many people who I would love to see get a story, I am not sure who to beg for next!
