CHRISTMAS BREAK is a short story and a new spin off series of Jami Davenport's Seattle Lumberjacks and it's a great start. The seed has been planted into my mind and now I need to see how it is going to flourish.
Braxton Davis is a college football star who has set his mind into going into the NFL. His family doesn't agree with his choice of profession, but he doesn't care. He is going to be the best in the NFL.
Aubrey is a waitress at the Grizzly Den and has a badass attitude. It is her way of closing herself off.
Both have decided to stay away and spend Christmas on their own. However, that one night, Braxton wants something to eat and Aubrey is the one taking his food order. He takes a peek at her tattoos and he has a sudden desire to see if she has them throughout her body.
Aubrey knows who he is, but it seems he doesn't remember her. They share classes together; they have the same major. So what starts as a one night of exploring each other might be a wonderful start of a romantic relationship...if he can accept her past.
I love Ms. Davenport's writing and how she is able to captivate me. This story had everything--steamy hot kisses, lingering touches and fun characters. I found this story very sexy, romantic and well written. I enjoyed seeing how Braxton and Aubrey interacted with each other and how they just seemed so right for one another.
The storyline has been seeded and I can't wait to see what else Ms. Davenport has in store for Braxton and Aubrey in Rookie Mistake. Opposites attract, and I totally recommend this short story.
