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,

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.

Snap Decision is an enemies to lovers story that hooked me from start to finish and I really enjoyed it.

Tyler is a football player who doesn't feel his game anymore,Lavender is a sassy woman with a deep loathing for jocks.
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.

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

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 pas 6 years. They were close friends/family to each other.

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

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.

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

“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

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.

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

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

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.

Being a big fan of sports romance, I was instantly drawn to this story. Additionally, I enjoy a good story that has a bad boy has the hero of the story and the heroine having some past resentment for sports players. This story ticked all of the boxes with Tyler the bad boy quarterback football player and Lavender, who has problems with football players due to her father picking sport over his family. This created an instantly enjoyable story with many humorous parts throughout the story and angs ...more

Snap Decision is a pretty perfect enemies to lovers romance. The hero is a cocky jock hiding a sensitive side, and the heroine is a sassy spitfire who refuses to take his BS. And she hates jocks, so the deck is stacked against Tyler from the start.

But we all know there is a fine line between love and hate, and Tyler and Lavendar keep dancing around that line throughout this story. But he’s kind of lost his purpose and passion in life, and she wants to push him to be the best man he can be. Toget

Tyler had lost his love for the only thing he had ever wanted to do. That's play football. Now not only did he have to spend time in this mansion but the team has brought in a new player that's not on this list of favorite people.
