Jami Davenport Crashing The Net

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.


4 out of 5 stars Kindle Copy for Review

Izzy Maxwell and Cooper Black met a month ago when she crashed his team’s party that she and her sisters were paid to do. Cooper has a jealous streak and one night decided to crash one of her parties and became jealous of one of the guests.  Izzy had enough and decides to break it off with him.

As the Sockeyes start their inaugural season in Seattle, he finds himself with a nephew he never knew on his doorstep wanting him to find his mom.  He turns to Izzy for help since he has no idea what to do and knows he cannot leave him alone during his road trips.  Using his money, so he can help out of Izzy who will not take his money, he asks her to find help.

He initially does not want his nephew around and figures when he finds his sister, he will give him back to her and make sure she gets help for her drug problems this time around.  Meantime his nephew is distant knowing he is not wanted as he keeps his uncle at arm’s length but slowly the three of them become a family.

Things come to a head one day as they all realize they need each other to move on when an unfortunate tragedy happens.  Cooper realizes he must face his past after all this time so he can move on and have a family with the both of them in a city where he hates.
