REVIEW: Jami Davenport's Time of Possession


The clock’s ticking down, and Estelle Harris and Lumberjacks quarterback Brett Gunnels are about to enter crunch time.

So anyone that knows me, knows that I am HUGE (I do mean HUGE) NFL fan. And since it's the off-season, I've been chomping at the bit for the season to start - or preseason at the very least. This book completely feeds my sports addiction and I've added it to my favorites.  

I've read Miss Davenport's series and this one does not disappoint. I loved Brett Gunnels as a hero and was so happy to see that he got his happy ending. To me, he feels like that nerdy wanna-be jock that gets his opportunity to shine and really does shine. His heroine, Estelle Harris is perfect and has such a great heart.

I loved how their respect and admiration for animals helped to fuel their relationship. I enjoyed watching how Brett comes into his own on the football field and with Estelle. This is such a great summer read. If you are sports fanatic, then this is the book for you.

It's a fast and easy read. It has everything that a sports fan could want - hot guy, sweet heroine, football, animals, great writing and an escape from the off-season.  I would give this one four and half stars and I can't wait for the next book to come out.



Supposedly undersized for the NFL, Brett Gunnels went off to do a stint in the US Army right out of high school. Returning damaged yet stronger and more determined than ever to prove himself, he was picked last in the draft. Mr. Irrelevant, they called him. The last few years as a backup quarterback have given him no opportunity to compete for the starting job. That’s why he has a chip on his shoulder the size of Puget Sound.

Estelle Harris is engaged to a man she doesn't love, working a job she hates, and fooling everyone including herself in the process. Her love of animals is the only thing that gives her purpose—a love she shares the Lumberjacks’ reclusive quarterback. And then their mutual friendship turns a hot, dark, forbidden corner and there's no going back.

True love is like football. It’s not always how long you have the ball. It’s what you do when you get it.


An advocate of happy endings, Jami Davenport writes sexy romantic comedy, sports hero romances, and equestrian fiction. Jami lives on a small farm near Puget Sound with her Green Beret-turned-plumber husband, a Newfoundland cross with a tennis ball fetish, a prince disguised as an orange tabby cat, and an opinionated Hanoverian mare.

Jami works in IT for her day job and is a former high school business teacher and dressage rider. In her spare time, she maintains her small farm and socializes whenever the opportunity presents itself. An avid boater, Jami has spent countless hours in the San Juan Islands, a common setting in her books. In her opinion, it is the most beautiful place on earth.
