Tpagirl Loves Romance
Snap Decision: The Originals was the first book in the Seattle Steelheads series by Jami Davenport. It was originally written as Forward Passes as part of the Seattle Lumberjacks series. Davenport has now changed the name, rewritten the storyline - but keeping the same premise - and published it as Snap Decision.

I read (and enjoyed) the original and was looking forward to seeing the improvements. But frankly, I have read hundreds of books since then - and I didn’t write a review so truthfully,

When they meet on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest they seem lost,both of them fearing the future but the chemistry between them is off the charts.Between an energetic sex escapade and a good bantering we see them growing up as individuals and as a couple.

Excellent sports romance.
When Tyler’s looses his game, he has to regroup and discover what will give him his passion back. Whilst doing that he also looses his fiancée, maybe it’s time to follow a new path and see if he has a new destiny.
Who will that be with, will it still be In Football ?
Great book from a wonderful author.

Will the pain of her past keep her from having a happy future? Will one mistake deter the football star from risking his heart on forever? Snap Decision is a fresh start for two wounded souls. Tyler follows the rules on the field, but has his own maneuvers outside the arena. When a hint of scandal tarnishes his heart, he seeks some solitude to lick his wounds. What he gets is a smart mouth, firecracker with her own baggage to sort through. Lavendar has no time for the big ego and bright lights o ...more

Reviewed on,
Snap Decision is another winner from Jami Davenport. This time our hero is Star Quarterback with the Seattle Steelheads, who has reached a turning point in his life. Tyler Harris who hides behind his BAD BOY persona where he doesn’t care about anyone but himself.
When he is left his family’s run-down mansion on Madrona Island, under the condition he must spend 90 nights on the Island. This is where he meets Lavender and all the old vets who were his uncle’s frie

What happens when an someone you care about dies and you are unexpectedly thrown for a loop? You make a new enemy. That's what happens in this book. Lavender has lived next door to Artie Harris for the past 6 years. They were close friends/family to each other. When he dies his great nephew inherits the house that she hoped to get and turn into a Veterans B&B. This turn of events really sour Lavender's view of the guy, not to mention that he's a football jock and she swore to stay away from that ...more

However since his life has been in turmoil recently, Tyler decides to stay and fight for his inheritance, after all it gives him a chance to stay out of the limelight and hopefully out of trouble.

Jami captures the characters heart and soul in this heartfelt story about life, making the readers feel as if they are also with them in their journey about life’s challenges.
The chemistry between Tyler and Lavender sizzles off the page with their love hate relationship, you can feel how strong the connection they have with each other and how this connection makes them feel complete.
A must read, Jami gives some wise words about life and dealing with many different struggles that we can face and

not her best

I love this author and her books but for some reason I struggled to like either character. The previous book had been so good and yet I found Lavender to be just bland and fixated as a character and was more like a petulant teenager. Tyler improved but again acted more like a hormonally challenged teenager. Good storyline but disappointing.

I give Snap Decision 5 stars. These characters went through what many people do and you can’t help but feel everything right along with them. This story is very believable and their chemistry was so so hot. Both had misconceived notions of what life was about, what is expected of them, but in the end, they learned by their mistakes.

Jami Davenport is a fabulous author and I’ve been following her for some time now. Her strength is blending sports and romance, and making it not only believable but

Tyler Harris should be loving where he is in life seeing that he is a star football player coming off his second Super Bowl win, he's got money, health and all the women he could want, yet he feels completely empty and he can't quite figure out why. Now facing a scandal and the break-up of his long-term relationship, he heads to an island in the Pacific Northwest to escape all that's going on in his life. What he

Quarterback Tyler Harris is a master on the field, and off the field too if you ask his former flings! The ladies love him, and of course every man in America would love to have his life. But these days this football master isn't feeling so masterful, he's lived the life of luxury, taken full advantage of what it offers him, but he still feels like he is missing something.

After taking home his second Superbowl trophy he should be on cloud nine, but he's just not feeling it, so he decides it's t

One may think Tyler has it all: fame, money and every woman he wants, even a fiancé. Although he tried very hard to keep up with his badass image, deep down his heart he is sweet and caring.
After winning the second ring with his team, he has to go on a remote island to honour his uncle death and inherit his mansion. Because he wants to stay low after an car accident and the break up with his fiancé, he decided to stay for the 90 days stated in his uncle will so he could inherit the mansion and t

To say that Tyler has had a chip on his shoulders for a while, is an understatement. Cocky, showboating quarterback just giving attitude in a fake persona; However, that's not really who he is. You could tell in book 1 of this series that he had things he was hiding, but just not sure what it was. He actually has feelings but unsure of how to show them. Then he meets Lavender... And he starts to slowly creep out of his shell. The chemistry between them is there, and they truly are good for one a ...more

Jami Davenport scores a touchdown with SNAP DECISION. Seattle Steelhead's quarterback Tyler Harris is willed a run-down mansion on an island in the Pacific Northwest. He keeps bumping heads with his new next-door neighbor, Lavender Mead, who is not a fan of football players. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

SNAP DECISION is a clever and fun read. I enjoyed the banter between Tyler and Lavender. They are very entertaining. Tyler is a complicated character. He is a

This is book #3 in the Seattle Steelheads series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Tyler has just won his second Super Bowl. Yet he feels nothing at all. He is numb. Something has to give. When tragedy strikes, he finds himself doing the last thing he would have suspected.

Lavender had plans to be the owner of a cat. She was to upgrade a historical home. Then her friend dies, and it is all gone.

“And a Jock’s heart grew 2 sizes that day.”
I don’t know why my mind kept taking me to The Grinch as I read this book; maybe because it’s the holiday season, or maybe that’s just the way my twisted mind works.. I digress.
Lavender and Tyler do have some Grinch like characteristics; Lavender hates Jocks, as she has been burned by “their” kind one too many times. While Tyler seems to have a blanket hatred of many people and things at the beginning of the book. Snap Decision ended up being about red

Jami Davenport is my go to sports author. Snap Decision was a great book. I loved Tyler. He was a man that appeared to have it all, but sometimes all the fame and fortune can be too much. Now after a very bad breakup, Tyler just needs a break from it all. Lavender doesn't like jocks or men involved in the sports field. Lavender's dad left them for a career in college football. The last thing she wants is to get involved with the man next door. A m

Originally published as Forward Passes in the series and gives us Tyler's story, who was introduced in book one. Yeah, he's arrogant. Yeah, he can be an ass. But it's all am image he projects. Lavender has been burned by men involved in sports. She had no wish to get involved with an athlete. When Tyler's uncle dies and leaves him the family estate on an island with poor cell services and a stipulation he can't leave the island, the two of them are thrown together.

Holy moly. Snap Decision had me in a ball of mess with Tyler and Lavender. I could not help but root these characters on. Jami Davenport, and forgive me if I have already said this, is the queen of Sports Romance genre. She never makes you feel like you are reading the same story plot over and over.

Snap Decision is about finding out the realities in life. Figuring out what is no longer the truth. I could not stop reading this book and my head has been stuck in this book world for days to come.

Tyler has focused his entire life on football and he has the success to prove it. Two time Super Bowl champion, wealth and any woman he could want he should be on top of the world which doesn’t explain why he feels unfulfilled. After a breakup that caused a media storm, he has retreated to the home he inherited from his great uncle to regroup.

Ever since her father left Lavender and her mother to become a college coach, she wants nothing to do with athletes. This doesn’t explain why she is so att

Sometimes Tyler gets overeager and means business, “oh, yeah, I will. I definitely will.” He pushed off the wall, grabbed her hand, and headed for the truck. His long strides ate up the ground. She ran to keep up." Tyler has all the feels for his woman, “the devil isn’t on my heels. He’s underneath me.” Her mass of red curls tickled his chest as she leaned down and claimed his mouth. Damn, but he loved an aggressive woman." Tyler is very vocal about his thoughts, “you’re making me crazy. I can’t ...more

4 1/2 sassy stars. I really liked Tyler and Lavender’s story. I just love her spunk and sass and the way she verbally spars with the cocky yet very sexy Tyler. He is not used to women not falling all over him and much to his surprise he is thoroughly enjoying the attitude his fiery new neighbor gives him. Tyler is not everything she thought he was though which she learns through their “ I don’t like you sex” relationship.

Thank you Jami Davenport for bringing us into your world! I have enjoyed my time spent reading Snap Decision and I hope you take the time to enjoy the perfect writing that draws you into not only the story but the characters minds and struggles.
Tyler and Lavender are two kindred spirits. Hurt, lost and searching for peace from personal heartache in Lavender’s case and professional uncertainty in Tyler’s situation. They may not like each other in the beginning but their chemistry was hard to den
