Down By Contact was my first read by Jami Davenport and while it is the third book in the Seattle Lumberjacks series it completely stands on its own and served as a great introduction to the authors writing style. I was a little unsure of how much I would like this romance since contemporary romances aren't usually my genre of choice but this one was done really well. I liked the characters even when I hated them. Especially Zach. He was such an arrogant pain in the rear for a good part of the book I kept wondering if he'd ever shape up and stop acting like a it's safe to say that I wasn't impressed by him or his actions at all for the first bit of the book but as he and Kelsie (who I thought had her iffy moments) started developing a relationship and he started mellowing out her really grew on me. Plus there were a couple moments in the book where he was just so incredibly sweet it was hard not to like him after all the changes he was making. Kelsie was a good character too. While sometimes she would be a little snooty (I blame this on her previous mean girl status) she was really down to earth and kind. I liked that she wasn't a complete pushover and like that she was a woman who put her foot down. The relationship between Kelsie and Zach was rife with chemistry and I loved how despite everything they just seemed to automatically work together even though in many ways they were opposites and probably should not have worked together. They both took what the other dished out and I was surprised by how "real" their love seemed to be. I thought the plot was really well done. It's one that I haven't really come across before and I liked the whole idea of a sports star having to go to finishing school under the tutelage of his ex-flame was really good. Overall, I loved this sports themed contemporary romance and am so glad I had the opportunity to review it for this tour. I'm definitely going to be reading more by Jami Davenport and can't wait to read the first two books in this series. I would recommend this to anyone who loves contemporary romance novels where the frog turns into a prince with a headstrong female lead. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my free and honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book.  This is the 1st time I have read anything written by Jami Davenport and am glad I did.  The book flowed easily and I couldn't put it down.  I read the book in 1 day.  I enjoyed the characters in the book. You feel sorry for the main character of Kelsie, former mean girl from High School thats learned the hard way to have more empathy for people. You cheer her on as she is getting her life back together on her own.  I loved the interactions between the 2 main characters. If you want a fun, light, fast read- I recommend this book.
