Faceoff was an amazing read, the writing flowed well, the storyline was intriguing and enjoyable and the characters were nice and sweet.

She got so popular she got her own reality show but now she needs a miracle to save it. Enter here Gage "Ziggy" Ziegler, hockey player, party goers, deep in debt who accepts to be Darcy's fake boyfriend to stay in the spotlight and pay his debts.

Another good addition to the Scoring series. This time it is Gage Ziegler and Darcy Engstron ’s story and I was hooked in the story that Jami Davenport wove from the first chapter.
Both Gage and Darcy are at a cross road in their lives. Darcy’s home improvement show is in danger of being axed and everything is falling apart for Gage, the perpetual playboy of the Seattle Sockeyes. In a bid to save both their careers, they are teamed up in a “fa ...more
What truly sealed the deal though was one of Gage's teammates who slept with Darcy's friend. At some point at the end ...more
I absolutely LOVED Ziggy and Darcy’s book and it’s probably my favourite to date! Readers got to know him in Steele Bailey and Hyacinth’s book - Icing, Scoring Series #4, and I was already all kinds of invested in his Puck Brothers / The Scoring Series book because he was quite a major secondary character. Darcy was his perfect foil and to my surprise, his guilty secret which cracked me up, and the crackling chemistry between them ensured I absolute ...more
Gage/Ziggy is a NHL star who is the quintessential bad boy - all he cares about is hockey, sex and partying every night. He also craves fame and attention like a drug addict. Despite making millions a year he is financially ...more

Faceoff is book 5 from Jami Davenport’s Seattle Sockeyes Scoring series and it is an absolute fun read - my favourite in the series. In previous books, Gage ‘Ziggy’ Ziegler was a bit of a mystery that led readers to perhaps get a glimpse that not everything was as great as his fun-loving ways may have led people to believe. When reality star Darcy Engstrom, enters the picture things are not what they seem for either of them and they take us along for the ride as they f ...more
I’ve always called them “lack of reality shows” and I believe Gage and Darcy would completely agree. Darcy is the host of a floundering reality design show and Gage is a pro hockey player with a floundering reputation and possibly career. Can pairing them in a fake relationship cause enough drama with their work, teammates, and family to save them or blow everything up?
Jami’s writing is easy to read and attention getting. I thought ...more
I have been waiting for Ziggy's story like so many others. The reformed bad boy? No way, he loves his women, his booze and hockey that is all. No one is going to slow him down. When his agent tells him this bad boy rep needs to change or he could face being not signed he isn't sure what to do. Then he is given a proposal. Go on a reality tv show and pretend to be the boyfriend of one of America's sweethearts.
Darcy, heartbroken on national TV twice. America just wants her to find happin ...more
