About the Author
USA Today Bestselling Author Jami Davenport writes sexy contemporary and sports romances, including her two new indie endeavors: the Game On in Seattle Series and the Madrona Island Series. Jami lives on a small farm near Puget Sound with her Green Beret-turned-plumber husband, a Newfoundland cross with a tennis ball fetish, a prince disguised as an orange tabby cat, and an opinionated Hanoverian mare. She works in computer support in her day job and juggles too many balls, but she wouldn't have it any other way.

Hunter McCoy is a tight end for the Seattle Steelheads NFL team, the eyes for his blind older sister Lilly, a proud member of the coastal Salish Tribe, and one of 16 neophyte partners in a potential Derby horse with an attitude.
Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan's family farm is a legendary producer of Derby winners and she has one last chance to produce another winner or the Kentucky farm will be sold to developers.
Hunter and Kate clash immediately. Not only are they from opposite backgrounds culturally and financially, their attitudes toward training their Derby contenders couldn't be different. Their attraction to each other is explosive - it's a love, hate relationship to the very end.
Lilly McKay lets nothing stop her, not even being blind. She is an accomplished horse-woman, best selling writer and has the gift of her elders to know things and see things. Cam is a fellow 'wingman' on the Steelheads with several other team mates from back in their UDub days. Despite the bro-code, he and Lilly develop a great relationship that has Hunter furious and Lilly moving out.
I'm giving the book 4.5 stars simply because I was looking for more football, but that's just me.
An ARC copy of Game Changer was provided by the author for an honest review, but I've pre-ordered my own copy.
I loved this series as well as Davenport's writing style. True to form, Game Changer was well written and had an interesting storyline.
With that said, this was my least favorite; however, I think it was mindset at the time of the reading. For some reason, I couldn't connect with the main characters, Hunter McCoy and Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan. We were introduced to Hunter previously and he's perceptive, insightful, and senses feelings/situations prior to their occurrence. It was great to dive further into his psyche, I just felt he was unreasonable at times and I craved a little more alpha from him.
I did, however, love the secondary storyline focusing on Lilly, Hunter's blind sister, and Cameron, Hunter's longtime teammate. That's the story I desired to dive deeper into. They were charming and it was a sweet story.
Another perspective that worked for me was Davenport's dive into the Native American culture. It was a fitting and enjoyable back story.
I would have liked more with the football theme, but Davenport was able to provide some crucial highlights and a storyline that was left open that hopefully will get resolved in a future book.
Additionally, Davenport included all of the previous character favorites, which spanned all of the Seattle professional sports teams and their lovely wives. Davenport also introduced us to the world of horse racing which included a peek into the Derby and a chase for the Triple Crown.
Al in all, Game Changer was a good addition to the series. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next on Davenport's horizon.
Hunter is making a name for himself and trying to be the best brother he can to Lilli. Horse racing comes into play at some point in his adult life and he tries it out. This is where he meets, Kate, who is trying to maintain control of the family horse business.
These two really give each other a run for their money. They are snarky, sarcastic, and then are all over each other. I loved the chemistry with these two. I liked that Hunter was our insecure character even though Kate had her moments. Hunter worried that Kate, not being Native American, would hinder his life and not accept his culture. He allowed this to mess things up.
Kate showed us that having a backbone can mean something. She fights through the whole book, fights with herself the most but at the end of the day, she learns that she cannot have total control.
Hunter finally realizes that what is meant to be in his eyes may not be what is destined for him. He learns that he needs to trust himself and go after what he believes is right. Between the football games, the races, and the banter between these two it was a busy and fast paced story.
