Description
After twelve years in the league, all Zach Murphy wants is a Super Bowl ring. He’s been about hard hits not smooth manners, about breaking quarterbacks not making small talk at cocktail parties. But now he’s shattered something else. After dumping a tray of drinks on the team owner’s snooty daughter and accidentally feeling up the Governor’s wife, his tenure with his team looks perilously short. And things are getting worse.

Life is looking up for Kelsie Carrington-Richmond. A onetime beauty pageant star and mean girl, she only recently stopped living out of her car. But both those times have passed. Her Finishing School for Real Men has a real shot, and the Seattle Lumberjacks have hired her to polish up their roughest player. Except…it’s Zach. Long ago she broke his heart. He’s just the beast she remembers—gruff, protective—but she’s nothing like the beauty from his past. Yet, getting knocked down happens, and getting back up makes a contender. And they both have the hearts of champions.

Editorial Reviews:
From Manic Readers
Having read more than a few sports romances, I can honestly say DOWN BY CONTACT is by far the best. Grittier, earthier and possessing a heart-wrenching emotional depth many others lack, Zach and Kelsie's story was one I didn't want to put down.--Manic Readers
From The Romance Reviews (Top Pick)
This story had my emotions going for a rollercoaster ride. I have read a couple of football romance stories and I have to say this has surpassed them all. Ms. Davenport, thank you for sharing these characters with me and other readers. The characters were well developed and the emotions that the characters portrayed were felt deeply by the reader.--The Romance Reviews (Top Pick)
From Talk Supe
"Down by Contact is a great romantic story. You'll love Jami Davenport's adorable Lumberjacks with their macho personalities and ego-centric attitudes. Inasmuch as they exude the quintessential Alpha vibe, they turn into warm, fuzzy teddies around their mates. They're every sports fan's fantasy as Jami Davenport dishes out the smex and romance in large doses."--Talk Supe

Excerpt:
Zach stopped dead in his tracks when someone stepped out of the shadows and blocked his path. As soon as the dark figure moved into the dim light of the street lamp, he recognized the tall, slender body. “Kelsie?” He glanced around, wondering if she waited for someone other than him.

She stalked up to him, fists shoved against her thighs. Her entire body radiated anger. “Did you tell him?”

He blinked several times and tried to make sense of her words. “Tell who?”

“You did, didn’t you?”

“Who’s him? Tell them what?”

“That you saw me.”

“I never told anyone anything.”

“You did. You called someone back home and told them.”

“I don’t have contact with anyone in Texas. Haven’t for years.” He tiptoed lightly around this female landmine. If the explosion didn’t kill him, the shrapnel from her anger sure as hell would.

“Are you sure?” She deflated a little. Her shoulders slumped, and her chin lowered. Her eyes dimmed a little.

“Positive. I might be a lot of things, but I’m not a liar. You should know that.”

The remainder of her anger fizzled like the remnants of a sparkler. “But if you didn’t tell him then who’s following me?”
