Faceoff by Jami Davenport

 


Release Date: 05.27.2021


Synopsis:


She's every man's girl next door. I'm the playboy your mother warns you about.

I'm the party-boy extraordinaire and perpetual playboy of the Seattle Sockeyes. I thought this was the dream life, but after multiple poor choices, it's all gone too far and I'm about to lose everything. My reputation has been shot to hell, I'm on thin ice with the team, and I'm financially broke AF. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and I'm about to agree to the last thing an irresponsible dude like me should ever do.

Darcy is the sweetheart of reality TV and every guy's girl-next-door fantasy, but her luster is fading, her show is on the chopping block, and she's now living in my condo. Did I forget to mention she's also my fake girlfriend and soon-to-be fake fiancé? And not a fake girlfriend with benefits, but the hands-off, leave-me-alone except when the cameras are rolling girlfriend.

I crave attention and notoriety. She craves stability and love. We both have our secrets...and chemistry. We have a lot of chemistry. Together we're explosive, but explosions have a way of hurting those closest to the blast. And this celebrity match made in heaven is about to detonate.


Review:



Faceoff was an amazing read, the writing flowed well, the storyline was intriguing and enjoyable and the characters were nice and sweet.

Darcy Engstrom was a foster home kid who got her heart broken on a dating show, twice, becoming american sweetheart. She got so popular she got her own reality show but now she needs a miracle to save it. Enter here Gage "Ziggy" Ziegler, hockey player, party goers, deep in debt who accepts to be Darcy's fake boyfriend to stay in the spotlight and pay his debts. Their forced cohabitation goes unexpectedly well, because even if Ziggy is a slob and Darcy a neat freak they find a deep attraction between them and a strong chemistry. Will Ziggy become a one woman man or will he go back to his old habit?

I loved Darcy and Gage so much they make me swoon and laugh and I got attached to them and hoped they got their well deserved happy ending. Ziggy and Darcy bring out the best in each other, they become more determined to not be pressured by others, never to be guilty tripped or frightened to say no anymore.
I despised Ziggy's family that keeps pressuring him to get more and more money loaned just because he got his dream job as a NHL player.

Definitely go pick this one up.
