About this ebook

Jasper:

I ran away from my family, my upbringing, my background, and her. I made hockey my sole purpose in life and mended my broken heart. We were divorced years ago. Imagine my shock when I find out I'm wrong--about everything.

Blaire:

I've dedicated myself to being a world-class dressage rider at the expense of the only man I've ever loved. When I discover our divorce was never finalized, I go to Seattle to rectify the mistake only to realize I've never stopped loving him.

Our disastrous marriage will be over in three months. There's one problem--do we want it to be?

This is part of a series, I think but I have not read any of them but I have read previous series by the author. I found this book easy to follow as a stand alone story. Its a second chance at love for two people, Blaire and Jasper/Caveman who grew up together but whose passions split them up and destroyed their very young marriage at age 19. Six years later Blaire comes back to ask for a divorce and finds herself trapped in Seattle with no money and nowhere to stay and she has to ask Jasper for help. I loved this story so much one reason is because we get to see Blaire and Jasper interact with some older characters and I absolutely adored that. We get some good time with Isaac, Avery and even Samantha. Blaire is a show horse rider until her horses are possessed by the government and she has no money, no job, no car and no home. I loved that Jasper helps her find a job. When Blaire's everything is taken from her she gets a job when she thinks she has no real skills to get a job and she excels at that job so much that she ends up getting more job opps. This book was so awesome because I loved watching Blaire get so strong and realize that she didn't need her family money and she can still have her passion for horses. It was a total honor reading this story and meeting Blaire and seeing her realise how awesome she really is. As to the romance, I also adored it. Jasper is always there for Blaire and these two are so different but they also are fighters and I loved watching them be there for each other. I also loved how Isaac tries to show Jasper that the problem was never their passions but rather it was their need to be the star and their immaturity was the issue and they can grow up and change and even share each others passions. I absolutely adored this book so much. I think it might be my top favorite that the author has ever written. I loved how it took new characters and we got to see them with the older character's that I watched fall in love from other series. I received a complimentary early release copy of this e-book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This series gets better with every book and Delayed Penalty (Scoring #7) is the perfect addition to this fantastic hockey series. This may be book 7 but it can certainly be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone but I do believe one book in the Scoring Series will never be enough and you will want to read the previous books and catch up with the rest of the teammates. This is Jasper “Caveman” Flint and his ex wife Blair’s story and boy do they have a tale to tell. Imagine finding out you were still married, that the divorce you filed a few years ago never went through, well that’s the position Blair and Jasper find themselves . But this journey is not just about the shock of still being married, this is about realising you never really got over her and when you find out she is in trouble you do what you always do and that’s step up and protect her. If this couple can honestly sit and talk it out they stand a good chance at happiness but will the past be to painful to build a future….. Delayed Penalty has all the feels, I swooned, I sighed, I smiled and I held my breath as I joined this couple on their journey, it was never going to be easy but true love very rarely is. So I guess all I need to say is please one this gem, you won’t be disappointed.

5 star Review Delayed Penalty (Scoring #7) by Jami Davenport From the first chapter I was drawn into the story that Ms. Davenport wove about Jasper "Caveman" Flint and his ex wife Blaire. It was a great addition to the Scoring series and one of my favorites. Imagine your shock if you suddenly found out that the divorce you thought went through, didn’t and you are still married. That’s the position that both Jasper and Blaire find themselves in. Although the seventh book in the series it can be read as a stand alone. I really liked both Jasper and Blaire and it was entertaining to watch their relationship as they re-connected. Both have been hurt by the past but they were young and have grown a lot since they parted. If they can confront the past, talk and really listen to one another then they have a fighting chance. Their journey had it’s up and downs but it was well worth it. This is a well written second chance at love story, romantic and steamy. It’s about taking a chance, learning to communicate and re kindling love.
