Backfield In Motion
Book Four: Seattle Lumberjacks Series
By: Jami Davenport
Releasing October 1st, 2013
ALL YOU’LL EVER BE IS A PRETTY FACE
Star running back Bruce "Bruiser" Mackey has heard those words his entire life, especially after his twin brother’s tragic accident. He might use his surfer-boy good looks to land lucrative endorsements for his secret charity, but he hates books being judged by their covers. Which is why it’s wrong that his friend MacKenzie Hernandez is intent on giving herself a makeover.
Sure, Mac and her father have been reeling financially since her brother disappeared three years ago, and Lumberjacks management gives an annual scholarship that might get her life back on track, but he can’t imagine anyone smarter, sexier, or more beautiful than Mac already is. He can’t keep his hands off her—and the more they spend time together, the less he wants to. She’s perfect as is. One way or another, he’ll make sure the team’s tomboy groundskeeper gets a full ride. And between the two of them, they can learn to accept what’s behind them and look downfield to a future full of win.
Bruiser Mackney has been said to just be a pretty face all his life. He lives the part he thinks he should. He poses for magazines, dates lots of woman and does what he pleases. He feels he has to to make up for his brother's death. He hides what he really is and his good deeds from others to fit the mold he is cast. MacKenzie is just like one of the guys to Bruiser and that is how he has always treated her. One day his thought wonder to a different area and after a makeover for her he is none to please to see she looks even sexier than before. Mac has always had a crush on Bruiser and thrilled when he starts to return her attention. She really has no life as she works all the time and really wants to go to school. That is impossible for her when she spends all her spare time with her dad hunting down clues to a brother that disappeared years ago. The two of them are great together they just can't see it for their past and they seem to get n their own way.
Mac is someone I really liked. She likes being one of the guys but she also at times wants to be seen as a woman. She is a hard worker and a really caring person. She gives up her free time so she can help her dad even when she wants a life of her own. You see her at her highest and lowest points in this book and you really see how special she is. Bruiser is the sexy guy all the woman want. He is afraid to let anyone close to him. He is also very caring and touched my heart in this book at how sweet he can be. You get to see all side to him and they all make you love him.
This book broke my heart in some ways. The characters have all had tragedy in their past and it makes you really feel for them. The author does a great job with them and you really feel their pain. Mac and Bruiser are great together and you know they would be perfect for each other if they would just really talk. I wish I could have shaken them both a few times. There is a few characters I hated in this book and I am sure when you read it you will as well. Beside Mac and Bruiser romance thing there is so much more that goes in this book to make it great. You have some mystery as Mac searches for her brother, heartache as it seems most of the characters have some form of it and Elliot. I love Elliot and wish I could take him home with me. If you are looking for a great book please try this one and fall in love with Elliot and the others with me.
