Title: Misquoted & Demoted
Series: Avery Shaw #6
Author: Amanda M. Lee

Avery Shaw’s life is a mess – and that’s putting it mildly. 
County Commissioner Tad Ludington is on the warpath, and his complaints haven’t fallen on deaf ears. The new publisher is watching the staff – and Avery is of particular interest. As punishment, he’s decided to bust her down to sports – and no one is happy about it. 
The sports editor hates her, and the rest of the staff is struggling to tolerate her. As for Avery? Her new world has sent her into a tailspin, and no one can console her – even long-suffering boyfriend Eliot, who can’t deal with Avery’s depression (or constant attitude). 
She desperately wants to chase the story swirling around the dead girl found on a high school’s football field. Instead, she’s forced to sit through wrestling meets and basketball games. 
She’s not happy, and that means everyone around her isn’t happy. No, to be fair, they’re downright miserable. 
When Avery’s current assignment crosses paths with the story she wants to chase, things come to a head. There’s a tangled web of steroids, obnoxious teenagers, and sketchy coaches to unravel. When you compound that with Grandpa and Mario’s new business venture – they’re running a traveling food truck and taking it to local high schools – Avery’s tenuous grasp on reality is starting to fray. 
Then there’s that whole “Jake thing” – you know, how he told her he loved her when he thought he was dying – and Avery is also expending a lot of energy hiding from him. 
Can this long-suffering reporter climb her way out of sports and survive when she becomes a target yet again?


Misquoted & Demoted begins with Avery being put in the sports section. She's depressed and angry because she knows it is Tad who made this happen. But she's going to do what she can to get him back, and to get her regular job back. Avery is also trying to avoid Jake after certain things that happened in the previous book, then add in the fact that she seems to be getting more comfortable with her boyfriend and taking him in to consideration more often, and you have a wonderful book with the main character growing as a person. 

I thought this book rocked! It had an amazing story line, and Avery is turning out to be an awesome character. Then I loved her and Eliot together as well. I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book now, and how she handles life with Eliot.
