Deflected

Alexander “Rush” Markov has been given an ultimatum by his team—shape up or ship out. Alex is celebrating his biggest season in professional hockey, and he’s enjoying every minute of it—perhaps a little too much. He’s been non-stop partying like a rockstar since his team won it all, and management isn’t pleased. Next thing Alex knows, he’s been exiled to a remote island wi...

    5 star Review Deflected by Jami Davenport

    Alexander “Rush” Markov plays professional hockey, hard, fast and parties even harder. Alex is also a closet reader and he often escapes into the world of book. After over celebrating his teams Stanley Cup win, he knows he needs to ease off his partying ways.

    When management decides he needs an intervention, Alex is packed off to Madrona Island with instructions to keep a low profile and to get his life and his future back on track.

    Rosalind Newcomb owns a book shop and she is annoyed when Alex begins to turn her life upside down.

    Alex really is the quintessential bad boy, hot, alpha and so sexy that women find him hard to resist until he meets Rosalind. She wants nothing to do with him at first but as she gets to know the real Alex, walls begin to tumble and the chemistry builds although she has no idea who he really is.

    From the start of Deflected I wanted these two to get together and remain that way. However lies told, even by omission can pollute and destroy a relationship before it can become established.

    What will happen when Rosalind finds out the truth? Will Alex take a chance on love or will he run before he can get to involved?

    Love Alex and Rosalind’s banter! Deflected is a great story and incredibly entertaining. After I started this book, I was not able to put it down. Highly recommended read!

    Book 2 in the Madrona Island spin off from Game On in Seattle and this is Alexander “Rush” Markov’s story. This like all the other books in this series can be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure once you pick up one of these stories you will want to learn more about these hot Seattle hockey players and their partners.

    Book 2 in the Madrona Island spin off from Game On in Seattle and this is Alexander “Rush” Markov’s story. This like all the other books in this series can be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure once you pick up one of these stories you will want to learn more about these hot Seattle hockey players and their partners.

    Alex and his team have just won the Stanley Cup and that’s means and lots of partying and plenty of wild nights for the man nicknamed Rush but the team owners have other plans and if he wants to keep his contract he needs to spend a month on the remote Madrona Island.

    Rosalind Newcomb is the owner of the bookstore on the Island and on the face of it is the quintessential good girl but at times she gets lonely and finds herself wishing for that special man to arrive on the Island. Alex may be a swoon worthy hockey player but he also loves to read so the bookstore is his first point of call when he arrives on Madrona but when he disrupts the peace and quiet of her store its hate at first sight for the pretty store owner, will Alex be able to win her over..

    Alex and Rosalind are meant to be and I found myself hoping and wishing for a HEA for this adorable couple but Alex is not a relationship man and Rosalind may not like the man he was before he met her so is it possible for love to win the day I guess you need to read the book to find that out. I love the chemistry this couple share, I love the banter and I love everything about Madrona Island and it’s residents who all seem to have a part to play in match making for the locals and team players from the Seattle Sockeyes. Looking forward to who’s next in this great series.

    Jami Davenport is my rock-star author of Ice Hockey romances since I discovered her books several years ago. She has built a complete literary sports world, where readers of this Seattle world are spoiled for choice of codes that include, Ice Hockey, Baseball and Football, and I have loved every book that she has written in these series, including this book, Deflected.

    Jami Davenport is my rock-star author of Ice Hockey romances since I discovered her books several years ago. She has built a complete literary sports world, where readers of this Seattle world are spoiled for choice of codes that include, Ice Hockey, Baseball and Football, and I have loved every book that she has written in these series, including this book, Deflected.

    Alexander “Rush” Markov hides his true passion of book nerd deep behind the facade that he is known for and actively cultivates; party animal and a player with bad English and a strong accent who spreads his sexual favours far and wide. Those activities are starting to be played out in public, and Team Management aren’t happy. He’s no longer a rookie, and they want him to step up as a good example to the young ones, or his position on the team may no longer be tenable.

    He’s sent to Madrona Island to cool off and dry out.

    I loved Rosalind Newcomb. Books were her passion, so she could almost be perfect for Alexander, except, she is such a structured planner, that she didn’t plan on this hot and gorgeous male specimen coming into her quiet bookshop and turning everything in her life upside down. Their first interaction started with him coming onto her, and ending with her booting him out of her bookstore on his backside!! How could this have happened to ... him? Women love him and would give anything to have him accept anything that they put on offer. But, she didn’t know him from a bar of soap.

    I also love a book where the chemistry is so strong that other characters can barely wade through it, and this was definitely the case between Ros and Alex. Even better for Alex was that her parents supported a summer relationship with him, knowing that their daughter needed to break out of the confines of her rigid plans. The more time they spent together the more she saw beneath his facade, and he saw future plans forming in his mind.

    Could it be that Alex is going to put his rabid party lifestyle to bed like those hockey heroes in the series before him, or maybe he will see his plans will go up in smoke when Ros finally googles his name and breaks her own heart as well as his. 4.5 Stars for another fantastic read from the Seattle series.

    Alex is all about the playboy lifestyle til his management get pissed and send him to a small island to get his stuff together. He meets Roz quickly and opens his mouth and ruins it lol. These two are like oil and water and there banter is amazing. I love that Roz had no idea who she was and even when she was told she didn't automatically google him. Im glad that Alex gives her breaks to shut down and breath before he gets forceful and takes over situations. Im so glad that Alex doesn't take no

    Alex, aka Rush, Markov has been celebrating winning his biggest hockey season ever, and it's raised some eyebrows from the higher ups.

    Alex, aka Rush, Markov has been celebrating winning his biggest hockey season ever, and it's raised some eyebrows from the higher ups. So now, he's being shipped off to a remote island to chill out & not get into trouble, or basically his career with the Seattle Sockeyes could be over. Alex thinks he's about to die on the boring, small community on Madrona Island, until he meets good girl, Rosalind Newcomb. She's very uptight, and he very much enjoys pushing her buttons. Rosalind sticks to a strict schedule, not coloring outside the lines whatsoever, even in her bookstore. And she's even a romance author, but writes under a pen name, so very few people know that she does. There's definitely a shortage of men on the small island, so when she lays eyes on Alex, she is instantly attracted to him, until he opens his mouth, and all bets are off. This story was all kinds of frustrating push & pull as the chemistry between the antagonists took a bit to really fire up. See, Rosalind drove me nuts, as her uptight & rigid self really stressed me out while reading, because frankly, she needed some shake up in her life. Hell, even her parents thought she needed a damn fling. I kept screaming for Alex to throw her down & have his way with her, but I was afraid she would be wearing granny panties for heavens sake. I was never so glad when the chemistry wouldn't be denied anymore, and they lit the sky up! Of course, some drama came along to bring on the angst, along with a twist or two to have the colorful metaphors thrown down, so this story was definitely different from others in the series. I loved it even as stressed out as Rosalind made me, so I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading

    When party boy and pro-hockey player Alex “Rush” Markov is sent to a remote island in the off season by his team’s management to tone down his behaviors and stay out of trouble, he feels exiled and wonders how he will spend his time with no entertainment to keep him busy.

    When he walks into the small town bookstore to indulge his secret love of reading, he knows immediately that his summer just became a lot more interesting. There’s no denying his attraction for the sassy owner who doesn’t fall

    When party boy and pro-hockey player Alex “Rush” Markov is sent to a remote island in the off season by his team’s management to tone down his behaviors and stay out of trouble, he feels exiled and wonders how he will spend his time with no entertainment to keep him busy.

    When he walks into the small town bookstore to indulge his secret love of reading, he knows immediately that his summer just became a lot more interesting. There’s no denying his attraction for the sassy owner who doesn’t fall at his feet or even seem to recognize who he is, and instead calls him out for his rude behaviors and kicks him out of her store.

    Rosalind Newcomb likes order and playing by the rules. She has a game plan, and she’s sticking to it even if she would rather be writing romance novels full time. Though she can’t deny her attraction to the handsome and cocky Russian sports star, she knows he isn’t a good choice for her. She doesn’t do casual and she knows it could never be more than a summer fling. And, he’s annoying.

    But the more time they spend together, the more they both start discovering about not only each other but themselves as well. Alex isn’t only the persona he portrays and Rosalind may be up for a chance at love, even if it only lasts a summer. Can this opposites attract couple of small town good girl and pro-athlete playboy find a way to make it work once they are no longer wrapped in the bubble of their remote island summer fling?

    Jami Davenport’s Deflected was truly a gift to her fans! This book was crazy sweet and super hot! I loved Alex and Rosalind so much as a couple that I couldn’t get enough of this book.

    For book after book in this series, the glimpses readers caught of Rush were that of a player who only cared about finding his next fling. To learn that he was a closet bookworm was fantastic! I also loved delving deeper into the persona he plays for others versus who he really was. He was really a fun character to get to know.

    Rosalind was a fun contradiction as well. She was all about having a plan . . . but learning she secretly wrote hockey romances was pure genius! Even better was when Alex got hooked on her series without realizing she was the author. I loved that she finally decided to give Alex a chance . . because their romance was both sweet and spicy!

    Jami Davenport fans will love some of the other athletes from previous books that make an appearance in Deflected and romantics will flip over the grand gesture that will either cause this couple to find their happy ever after or break them apart forever.

    Deflected was a really fun additional to the Seattle Sockeyes series and Rosalind and Rush have become my favorite couple by this author to date. 5 stars!

    Oh, yeah that cover model is Alex!! Wow how fun to read about the islands off Washington coast. I've been on the ferries and to Victoria so I could picture scenery. It was fun to read about island life. The author alludes to the Playboy lifestyle but it's pretty tame (not explicit) yet you know that going from movie star or models to small town bookstore owner would be A LOT!!!

    Author made us feel that Roz was out of element when they went to Victoria and Alex got spotted as a celebrity.

    So great

    I just couldn't put this book down last night. I was so intrigued to see what was going to happen and then before I knew it the book was done. Alex and Rosalind are more alike than they think, but can she get over his reputation? Will he finally admit he's ready for love? You will have to read it to find out. This was a very well written book and I look forward to more.

    Alexander "Rush" Markov plays hockey for the Seattle Sockeyes and after finishing his most rewarding season yet, he's been partying hard. Probably a little too hard, at least that's the stance from team management. He's notorious for partying and liking women and when he starts making headlines, the team steps in. Alex is sent to Madrona Island and told that he needs to keep a low profile and clean up his act, otherwise he might be sent packing all the way off the team.

    Rosalind Newcomb is a Madrona Island native and she runs the book shop on the island. She's very much the good girl and she definitely is a romantic. She really wants that special someone in her life, but she hasn't found that person yet.

    When Alex finds his way into the bookshop to feed his joy of reading, Rosalind is immediately on the defensive because this handsome, alpha male is peaking her interest, yet he also drives her crazy. When an omission occurs, Roz throws walls up faster than you can say go. Will Alex be able to crumble the walls that Roz has built around her heart? And, will Roz be able to bring out the real Alex in the process?

    There is no doubt these two have chemistry and when they are able to get past their own insecurities, they are amazing together. It was great to see how they were able to bring out the best in one another. I wanted things to work for them as soon as the book started. This is definitely worth adding to your summer TBR pile!
