When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, opinionated race horse.

Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan's family has raised champion Thoroughbreds on their Kentucky bluegrass farm for over a century. Lately the farm has fallen on hard times, but Kate is determined to return Oak Brook to its former glory. First, she must satisfy an odd clause in her grandfather's will. She's been given five years to produce a winner of horse racing's biggest prize of all, the Derby, or lose the farm to her siblings and their development plans. Time has run out, and Hunter's talented horse stands between Kate and her last shot at the Derby. Only Kate never counted on her heart entering the race.

Hunter is juggling his responsibilities to his two-dozen investors, his blind sister, his football career, and his commitment to his tribe. The last thing he needs is an unwanted attraction to a spoiled rich girl who doesn't fit into his carefully crafted plans. Not only are they rivals on the race track, but she doesn't understand or appreciate his dedication to his Native American heritage. Yet despite the odds, all bets are off when Hunter and Kate find themselves in a relationship they can't resist.

With the stakes much higher than the Derby purse, can these two longshots win the biggest race of their lifetime or will their hearts finish out of the money?

My Review

Jami Davenport’s Game Changer is another sexy football romance that includes two love stories told through four points of view. Hunter McCoy is an American Indian, professional football player and successful businessman who is passionate about investing in racing horses.  He has a blind sister living with him who he is fiercely devoted to. Hunter is a very interesting guy.
Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan is from a wealthy, blue blooded family, and she is an avid horsewoman. Horses are her life and she is determined to have a Kentucky Derby winner – for more than just the glory of winning the most prestigious race. She needs to win in order to prevent her family farm being sold, and she will do anything she can to save it. She finds the horse she thinks can win, but he is Hunter’s horse.
Kate believes everyone has a price, but Hunter soon proves her wrong. They don’t start off on the right foot and have an I-hate-you but I-want-you battle of wills, but they also bond over their love of horses. Sparks fly and they cannot resist each other for long.
While Hunter and Kate do their love/hate dance, Hunter’s sister Lilli and his teammate Cam discover their own attraction. Their romance is a nice bonus, and Lilli’s blindness was an interesting storyline.
Jami Davenport writes complex stories with enigmatic characters that are always original and unique. Game Changer is just this and is easy to recommend.
