Blind Sided


Loved this book!  I hadn’t read any of the previous ones in the Game On in Seattle series yet, but you don’t need to in order to enjoy this one.  It’s a totally stand alone story.  Really enjoyed getting to know the characters and falling in love with them.  Tanner is one of those guys you love to hate at times, but when you get to the parts where you can see down deep inside him, he becomes attached to your heart!  I will definitely be going back to read those earlier books to see who else I can notch on my bedpost. 🙂

Emma Maxwell is one of four daughters of once big time rock legends.  She’s the good girl of the family who always does the right thing.  Except on Wednesday nights when she’s been sneaking around to have a blast on stage singing Karaoke, regardless of a “never going to sing” pact she has had for years with her sisters.

Tanner Wolfe is the bad boy Quarterback of the Seattle Steelheads.  Emma has been crushing on him for years, but is always too shy to have much to say to him when he’s hanging around with her sister Izzy who he’s good friends with.  When he’s out for a quiet good time, hoping not to catch the attention of his new team owners, he runs into her at the casino where she’s singing.  One thing leads to another and they have a moment.  Then all hell breaks loose and a short time later, they find themselves temporarily married.

They find themselves enjoying each other and married life alot, and as Tanner calms down and concentrates on football, his game starts to improve and his career is looking up.  Will the marriage stay temporary, or will the fact that they are falling in love change the outcome?

Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport introduces the Seattle Steelheads
football team with this sixth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance
The daughter of one-time rock
legends, Emma Maxwell is the good girl of the family, the dutiful sister, the
doting aunt, and a dedicated employee in the family party-crashing business.
Every Wednesday night at Karaoke, she indulges in her secret fantasy of being a
singer. Yet the thrill of being on stage doesn’t rival the thrill of a
spontaneous liaison with the delectable, yet downtrodden, quarterback of the
Seattle Steelheads, Tanner Wolfe, Emma’s long-time crush.
Tanner didn’t see it coming–not any
of it. He was blindsided–by his dysfunctional family, his plummeting career,
and the one thing he least expected–by love. After photos with Emma go viral,
Tanner is caught in a lie and tells a bigger one to get out of it. Now he’s
shoulder-pads deep in a temporary marriage while struggling to resurrect his
disastrous career and reunite his broken family. As time passes, Tanner begins
to wonder if temporary is good enough, but he’s made a promise to Emma, one
which has nothing to do with marriage vows and everything to do with her
Nashville singing career and the end of their relationship.
Will Tanner and Emma take the ball
and drive for the win, or will they be permanently relegated to the sidelines
as the clock runs out on their temporary marriage?


“Whose idiot idea was it for us to come to the casino on karaoke night?” Tanner groused. He’d already lost too much money playing a couple rounds of blackjack so gambling was out but so was calling it a night. Tanner didn’t want to go home either.

“Yours,” Hunter, Cam, and Grady answered at the same time.

“Oh,” Tanner sighed and studied the bar menu, suddenly hungry.

“Hey,” Grady tugged on his sleeve and pointed with his finger, “isn’t that your brother’s fiancée?”

Tanner snapped his head around so fast he almost got whiplash. The lady in question stood on a dark stage under a spotlight, a microphone grasped in her hand. Rubbing the back of his neck, Tanner squinted into the lights of the small stage.

“Holy crap,” he said under his breath. His dick hardened in record time. The woman in question wore a tight pink top showing a liberal amount of tasty cleavage and a swishy, mid-thigh skirt. Her honey blond hair spilled over her shoulders and down her back. A very nice back and even nicer ass, he noted, as she bent down to pick up the mic. She wasn’t tall, but she was just his size with those long, long legs which stretched to heaven and back.

All kinds of wicked scenarios designed to piss off his brother played through his mind. He couldn’t imagine why Avery would be here dressed like that without his overbearing ass of a brother stuck to her side. They must have had a fight. Maybe they broke up, making her ripe for rebound sex. Or maybe—

Tanner frowned. Something wasn’t quite right.

“Shit,” he swore under his breath. Tanner noticed details, a talent which had made him an elite college quarterback able to read defenses with a glance. Sadly, that particular talent hadn’t helped him in the pros—yet.

No, that delectable vixen on stage wasn’t Avery, but Emma, the sweet twin sister. Tanner leaned forward and licked his lips. Emma? Dressed like that?

Damn, she was the hottest woman in here.

He shook his head, pretty sure the world might be coming to an end any minute. Considering Izzy was one of his closest friends, he knew the sisters pretty well and Bella really well; actually maybe too well because his brief involvement with Bella had created tension between Izzy and him. He hated that.

Tanner watched mesmerized as usually quiet, buttoned-up Emma morphed into a hot, sultry siren. She sang and danced on stage like a pro, reminding him she’d been raised with music in her life because of her parents’ status as two-hit wonders. Emma’s party-crashing side job most likely contributed to her stage presence. In their teens, the sisters had literally sung for their supper by crashing parties in order to get their next meal. They were so good at taking a dud party and turning it into a success, they started a party crashing business, which he understood was becoming quite lucrative.

Hell, he’d even paid them to crash one of his parties—yet he’d never noticed Emma in stage mode before, maybe because he’d been too busy screwing Bella in a closet.

He ran his hand through his hair and groaned. He noticed her now, and he was torn between covering her up with his jacket and taking off the clothes she had on.

BOOK REVIEW – Weather the Storm – Lisa Mondello – Rising Storm, Episode 7

Weather the Storm


This episode was really well written.  It mostly centered around Pastor Bryce Douglas trying to come to terms with his son Danny’s Autism diagnosis and accepting the different things that have to go into their plan of helping Danny cope with starting school.  He and Tara make a good start in getting their marriage back on track as well.

There is also further drama with Senator Sebastian Rush and his mistress Dakota Alvarez.  Lots of explosive secrets are starting to be figured out.  Can’t wait to see what happens next week in the final Episode of this season.

BOOK REVIEW – A Love To Last – Kelsey Browning

A Love To Last


I’m hooked!  This is Book 1 in the Prophecy of Love series, and I already can’t wait to read more.  Great job of weaving a small town chemistry that makes us fall in love with the thought of what has been, and what’s yet to come.  I laughed, I cried, and I wished for the fairy tale kind of love that burns even through years of separation.  Great read!

Cal Maddox walks into his dad’s boot shop and sees the one woman he has never forgotten.  Delaney Shields is only stopping through Prophecy, TX for a quick check on Whit Maddox and never expected to see Cal.  Last she heard, he was traveling the world in the military.  He had no clue his dad had kept in such close contact with Delaney all these years.

Whit is determined to get Delaney to stay in town and take over his boot shop for him.  He told her years ago that she was the next Prophecy bootmaker, and if she won’t stay, the magic ends and the town falls apart.  Delaney doesn’t want to admit that she can see the boots in her mind.  If she does, then she’s locked into settling down, and as she proved when she walked out on Cal all those years ago, she’s not the staying kind.

Will she and Cal admit they still love each other or will she ride off into the sunset again?  Can she ever believe that she’s worth being loved after the past she’s had and let herself actually be happy?

A Moment to Love


I really enjoyed this book!  Jennifer Faye did a wonderful job of creating Whistle Stop, New Mexico into a town you want to visit and settle into yourself.  I can’t wait to delve in even further with the next book 🙂

Cord Lawson is a rancher living a very solitary life.  He feels like the town doesn’t like him because of past experiences with them.  He’s now on the verge of having his ranch foreclosed on by the bank unless he can come up with the money to pay the balloon payment on the loan.  He’s trying to sell part of his land, but so far has had no interest.

Alexis Greer is a land developer from New York City.  She comes to town because she saw the listing for Cord’s land and is very interested, but there was a mistake in the listing and and the land that she’s wanting, is the part that he has no intention of selling because of family history.

Cord and Lexi are drawn to each other.  They each want the other to bend into doing things the way they want them with the deal, but can’t fight the attraction they are feeling for each other all the while.  Will they be able to find a solution that lets them both get they want?  And when all is said and done, will they have a future together?

Jordan and Ty are finally together, as in living together—mortgage and all. Now they intend to enjoy a little down time. They’ve purchased an aging horse ranch with plans to renovate, but their domestic bliss is put on hold when Ty is called in to investigate a murder case.

Coincidentally, an unusually graphic nightmare about a young college student’s murder catches Jordan by surprise. In the dream, Jordan can see the girl’s pretty blonde hair. She can see the snowy ravine the girl was strangled in. Most shockingly, this time she can even see the killers face.

Being at home and still on vacation is making it challenging to figure out how to connect with this latest victim, until Jordan visits Ty’s precinct and recognizes a young man in interrogation as the murderer.

When Ty insists the suspect is innocent, Jordan debates just how far into Ty’s career she can interfere. Influencing another cop’s investigation on the basis of a dream is a line she’s never dared to cross. Even if the other cop is the man she loves.

Making the situation all the more frustrating is the sexy, red-headed Isobel Riley from Missouri Highway Patrol who is partnering with Ty for the duration of the case. And Isobel is a lot more than a mere detective consultant—she’s Ty’s ex-lover.
