Teaser #3

Those of you who have read Crashing the Boards will remember Cooper and Izzy from there.

Cooper is the captain of a popular hockey team and Izzy is a professional party crasher. They meet in an unlikely fashion and go from zero to 100 in a tumultuous, sizzling whirlwind romance!

Where we pick up in this installment, things have simmered down and Izzy wants no more to do with Cooper. After all, she can’t count

We originally met Izzy Maxwell and Cooper Black in Jami Davenport's Crashing the Boards and while the sparks flew between them upon their first meeting, things have decidedly cooled at the beginning of this sequel due to the jealous and controlling ways that plague Cooper. When Cooper almost ruins one of the parties that Izzy and her sisters are crashing, she calls it quits with the star hockey player. Izzy is determined to stick to her

I loved this book.....a great love story! When Izzy Maxwell & Cooper Black first met in Crashing The Boards, the chemistry between them was electric! In this book they are at odds, yet at the sight of Izzy makes Cooper's blood boil and at Cooper's nearness causes Izzy's heart to flutter and her bones to melt. When Cooper's sister abandons her teenage son Riley, Cooper finds he must take responsibility for the boys welfare. Asking for Izzy's help with the boy reunites the couple.

**Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

"Crashing the Net" is written by Jami Davenport, and it part of her Game On in Seattle series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features hockey star Cooper Black and party crasher Izzy Maxwell.

We first read about Cooper and Izzy in the novella "Crashing the Boards," and from the get-go, I was immediately captivated by this couple. When Jami announced they would have a full-length novel, I couldn't have been happier!

NHL team captain Cooper Black and professional party crasher Izzy Maxwell are back in a follow-up of book 2, Crashing the Boards. Cooper struggles with jealousy over Izzy’s job. Plus, he is left to raise his teenaged nephew.

I was so excited when I got an ARC of this book because I could not wait to read it. I loved Izzy and Cooper in their first book and was upset when I realized they broke up in this one.

Cooper is jealous and overly protective and makes Izzy crazy so she calls it quits with him. He lets her stew for a while expecting to smooth it over but discovers that Izzy is serious about not letting him control her life. Then, he gets a big surprise in the form of his nephew Riley coming to live with him. Coo

Once again Ms Davenport graces us with a fantastic sports romance. It is the third book in the series, and I would recommend that you read them in order to get the full picture, but this is a good book all on its own!

Cooper is a man who is being thrown for the loop time and time again, and he just doesn't know, or understand why he is reacting how he is. Izzy is just one of the factors that is blowing away his control, an

Jami is melting up the ice with the newest addition to her hockey series. If you didn't know what to think when we last left Izzy and Cooper, sit back and enjoy the ride.

Izzy is a strong, independent woman who needs to control everything in not only her life, but also her sisters' lives too. She's practically raised them since her parents spent most of their time living their lacking music career.

Cooper is a man who isn't sticking around and wants to control everything in his life too. When a

Just proves what a wonderful storyteller you are. I finished it, and loved it. I think it is my favorite yet. And yes this post will wind up in my review too."

If you love sports romances, Jami Davenport is an author you shouldn't miss. In her newest book, Crashing the Net, she combines, sports, hot men, love and families guaranteed to tug at every emotion you have. Love her books and can't wait to see what comes next in the Hockey series.

Back in April 2014, Jami was part of Hockey Anthology that was giving all the proceeds to charity, and we met Cooper and Izzy in Crashing the Boards. Basically, it was a tease on how these two met. I was left waiting to see what happen between these two, because they kind of hit off with a bang. However, Cooper hated Seattle, and we were sure why. So, that intrigued me. Then we had to wait a little longer, because Evan had to have his story. Finally,

There is nothing I love more than an alpha male- add a big bad professional hockey player and this book is the stuff those dreams are made of! We met Cooper & Izzy in the novella Crashing the Boards and while you don't HAVE to read it before Crashing the Net, I recommend it! It is great short read and really gets you invested in Cooper & Izzy's story. Crashing the Net starts off where Crashing the Boards ended. Cooper and Izzy are a couple and Izzy's party crashing business is growing, t ...more

Wow!!!! What a powerful ending to a very good story. I knew from the start of this book that it was going to be good, but didn't expect it to be so good, so hot or heart wrenching. Izzy & Cooper are both very strong, controlling & independent people who met at a party for the new hockey team Cooper plays for. Izzy's job is crashing parties & getting people up dancing & having a good time & Cooper doesn't like the fact that she has to flirt with other guys in her job. Having c ...more

You meet Cooper Black and Izzy Maxwell in Crashing the Boards. You see how they meet and how hot the chemistry is between them.

In Crashing the Net Cooper's stubborn, controlling, possessive side comes out. Izzy owns Professional Party Crashers, she has a job to do. She may have to get cozy with men while doing that job. The one and only time she crossed that line was with Cooper when she was hired to crash a Sockeye's p

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

The first part of Cooper and Izzy's story, Crashing the Boards, is how I fell in love with Jami Davenport! So I was beyond excited for the continuation of their story, and Jami didn't let me down!!! This book is fantastic, the perfect weekend read!

ANOTHER AUTHOR WRITING SPORTS STORIES--THAT I LOVE!!!

Okay, I confess, I am in the midst of a Jamie Davenport binge reading session. I am not sure if this was the third or fourth book, but it was definitely the strongest one. I spent the last few pages alternating between blotting tears and blowing my nose. It has steamy sex scenes, but its strength, to me, is in its love scenes, scenes where the hero faces his own imperfections, his need for love, and where the heroine and her sisters interact i

Cooper is the strong, brooding, control freak type. He thinks he knows what he wants. When he described the type of woman that he wants all I could do was laugh and shake my head - silly boy.

Izzy is strong, independent and a bit of a mother hen who is always looking after everyone else. She is strongly attracted to Cooper but thinks that falling in love means giving up her independence.

I enjoyed Izzy and Cooper's story. With

Although I really enjoyed this book overall, I felt like the beginning story for Cooper and Izzy was a little rushed. Cooper is still sulking about his NHL team moving to Seattle. He meets Izzy at a team function and sparks fly. Cooper has major trust issues in regards to Izzy's job as a party crashes. As their romance hits ups and downs, they are building a friendship. Cooper has family issues and Izzy already with her own family issues, is a rock for Cooper. Through adversity and a life changi ...more

This was definitely more about Cooper, Izzie and Riley's relationship than it is about hockey. Cooper has his reasons for his jealousy and trust issues, Izzie for her independent and controlling nature, and Riley for his insecurities. It's not easy for any of them to adjust to their current living situation, but they begin to form a bond that is cemented when tragedy strikes. An enjoyable read that can be read as a standalone, but it a continuation of the novella Crashing the Boards. Looking for ...more

The story of Cooper and Izzy is a charming romance with a twist. Although the central story is about the romance between a hockey player and a party crasher, there's a lovely subplot interweaved that really pulls on the heartstrings. The plot is well paced and it has likeable, strong characters that have real development. Jami Davenport always delivers hot alpha men, particularly when she's writing sports stars, and her female characters are always well thought out and have great strength and pe ...more
