 - Reds Romance Reviews


When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, champion Thoroughbred.

In order to save the farm and fulfill her dying mother's wish, Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan’s Thoroughbred has to beat Hunter's horse in the Derby, an easy enough feat until her heart entered the race.


Lilli McCoy, Hunter's sister, has been burned by men before, but she'd believed her last boyfriend was The One. He wasn't. He couldn't deal with Lilli's disability and used her blindness as tool to cheat on her.

Reeling from the betrayal, Lilli returns home to lick her wounds. She hadn't factored in the instant attraction she’d feel for her brother's playboy teammate, Cameron Swift. One playboy in her life should've been enough.

Addicted 2 Romance Review:


*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.*

I am a new fan of Jami Davenports. This was a really well written story with some very deep characters and the story had many layers. I really absolutely LOVED this story. I have enjoyed some of the other books written by the author but this one I beyond loved. The only thing I hated was I wanted to know what happened...Does Kate's mom get better and who wins the Derby??

This book was super great. It was engrossing and I could not stop reading. So beware, read it when you have time to really enjoy it. It has three couples in this story, two couples (4 characters) who we get to hear their thoughts. Surprisingly the romance I was morre invested in was Cam (the best friend) and Lilli (the sister). Once that romance is mooth sailing then I got more invested in the main couples romance (Kate and Hunter).

Here are the 3 couples:
Kate - the rich girl who needs a horse to win the derby so she can save her horse farm for her mother

Hunter- the football player who is an american-indian and who owns the horse, Sid. He owns the horse with his family/tribe and his football team.

Lilli- Hunter's sister who is also blind and a mystery author

Cam- the african-american football player who is a bit of a playboy and who has the hots for Lilli. He is also Hunter's best friend.

Sid- Hunter's horse. A very fast horse but big on personality

Jet - Kate's horse. Very predictable horse but not one with a lot of passion.

This is a story mostly about Kate and Hunter's love/lust/hate relationship. They have a lot of sex often but they don't always like each other. Hunter is very big on committed relationships and Kate has always felt left out things and that guys get bored with her. So a purely sexual relationship she is totally good with it.

The first part of the book takes place in Seattle where Kate and Hunter start to get to know each other. It then moves to Los Angeles which is where the book really  shines. That is when Cam and Lilli really get involved and I LOVED them together. At times I liked them so much more than Hunter and Kate. Once their relationship is smooth well thats when Hunter and Kate's issues and romance really picks up and thats when I really started to become invested in them as a couple.

Throughout the story Jet and Sid are very involved as everyone follows them around from race track to race track and they are really major characters in this story. This is really much more of a story about horse racing than of football.

It also is very heavy on Hunter being Indian and how involved with issues he is in relation to his tribe. He really believes in THE ONE and he does not think that is Kate and so this is a big factor in how he sees Kate in a lot of the story. For alot of the story Kate does not realise its a big factorand so when she realises it - well that was a wonderful aspect and how she chose to deal with it.

I really absolutely LOVED this story. It was really so much more than what I have read by this author before and so much more than I expected when I started reading this story.
