UPDATE December 27TH 2017

This is the excerpt my friend sent me. A conversation between female mc Emma and her sister Bella (who slept with male mc A FEW TIMES)

"You do realize I had wild monkey sex with your fiancé several times, don't you?
Emma blanched, not expecting this at all. 'I, uh, I suspected so.'
'You don't think it's weird that you're having my left overs?'
'Uh, I hadn't thought of it like that.' Emma wanted to crawl under the table and pretend

What a great story this was! I so enjoyed Emma and Tanner's love story.

Tanner Wolfe has been in the NFL for a couple of years and he has yet to make the impact everyone expected. Instead, he's getting more press of his off-field antics and the new management of the Steelheads has had enough, issuing him an edict of clean up your act or you may find yourself on the outside looking in.

Emma Maxwell has always been the "good" sister. She's never gone against anything her older sisters have wanted

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

The romance storyline of a fake marriage is nothing new but it really worked for this couple. The fact that Emma is actually in love with Tanner had me pulling for her. I struggled with Tanner at times, especially when he lied like it was the easiest thing in the world. But I also felt sorry for him so I wanted him to be happy too.

When Emma's sisters (who we've met in previous books) learn about the impending marriage and

This book was a disappointment. The hero starts off as a slimy playboy and doesn't really get past the slimy to me. The heroine is one of those "I fell in love with him the first time I saw him" women. In this case, when she was 17 and he was on a football field. The marriage is the result of a face-saving lie on the hero's part, and she goes along with it because he's her one true love. There's some character development on the hero's part; in fact, the book seems to revolve around him. The ...more

"Blindsided" is written by Jami Davenport, and it is the 6th book in her Game On In Seattle series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Tanner Wolfe and Emma Maxwell.

I really enjoyed Tanners and Emma's story. Tanner is the quarterback and he is the love and leave em type. After his team is sold to a family organization they decide he either needs to clean up his image or find another place to be. While cleaning up his image he runs into a drunk Emma at karaoke and now she is all he can think about.

I have read all the Game On Seattle books, and this is a worthy new episode in the series. I love how everything is becoming increasingly interwoven, as three of the Maxwell sisters have now fallen for sports stars in the city. This one is particularly poignant, as it links to Isaac's past, and thereby gives us more of that story as well as giving Avery's quiet twin Emma her chance at happiness.

Tanner is quite the flirty guy, “you’re welcome. Let me take a shower and get dressed .” He still held her hand to his chest. Her fingers curled into his chest hair, and she drew in a sharp breath. “You could join me if you’d like,” he added with a hopeful grin." Tanner isn't a bashful person, “of course, I’m always prepared. Usually that means plenty of condoms, but tonight it means a house key.” He cocked his head to the side and turned on his most adorable smile. “Not that I don’t have the

This was an awesome book. I'll admit it had me crying quite a bit towards the end, but it was so worth it. I enjoyed it so much, that I went and bought all of the other books in this series, so I can go back and see what I might have missed. I will say that Jami Davenport has gotten herself a new fan. This book definitely gets 5 stars and would recommend to anyone who loves romances and especially those of us who love the sports romances.

A contemporary romance of dreams, a marriage of convenience, dysfunctional families, and what is most important.

Tanner, a professional quarterback for the Cleveland Browns (sorry,actually the Seattle Steelheads, but reading about the lack of an offensive line and hotdog quarterbacks who aren't producing seemed straight of the Browns playbook) is struggling on and off the field. His exploits off the field have him labelled as the team's horndog as he is seen with starlets, celebrities, and more.

Blindsided was a hilarious yet sweet romantic tale about a marriage of convenience turned right.

Tanner is on notice with his time, put away the bad boy behavior, and show the new owners what he's made of or be out on his rear. While also dealing with a private family drama, Tanner feels overwhelmed. He doesn't neceissarly mind cleaning up his act some, but giving up the multitude of women, he might as well give them up completely. That is of course until he opens his eyes and comes up with a

BLINDSIDED is an entertaining, feel good story with sizzling heat between the characters. This is the sixth book in the Game on in Seattle series and each book is a standalone with interconnected characters.

Reading the synopsis and seeing the cover of Blindsided is what initially drew me to the book. I love a romance between a bad boy and good girl, and when the boy is a man who plays football is just icing on the cake! Emma is the sweet, beautiful girl who falls for the sexy bad boy, Tanner. Some may find their instant attraction to each other and the different situation they find themselves in as unrealistic. However, the plot and the characters are so well-developed that it’s not only realistic ...more

I have been reading quite a few holiday romances these past few weeks, and needed a reprieve from all the mistletoe and holly. Luckily, Blindsided by Jami Davenport was next on my TBR list. A football romance in the middle of football season is a perfect combination. This is Ms. Davenport's sixth book in her Game On Seattle series, and America's gridiron pastime is one of the stars of the show.

Her sisters have fallen for famous hockey players and one, Avery, happens to be engaged to Tanner's estranged brother.

Pro Football Quarterback Tanner Wolfe's career isn't going so well. He's not playing well on the field, and can't stay away from women.

I've always been a huge football fan and no other author writes great sports romances like Jami Davenport. This football love story belongs to Tanner and Emma!

Having come from a difficult home life with an abusive father and losing his mother and his sister at a young age, Tanner keeps his heart guarded. Believing that everyone he has ever loved has left him.

3.5 Stars

I've read most of the other books in this series. Reading the synopsis I had high hopes going in but it just wasn't as good as I expected to be. Tanner and Emma have a marriage based in convenience. He needs his image cleaned up and Emma is the perfect person to help him. Emma she the "good girl" has been crushing on Tanner for quite some time. Tanner's character was likable but not completely lovable.
