USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport introduces the Seattle Steelheads football team with this sixth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series.

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?

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. 

Emma dreams of becoming a famous singer but she made a pact with her sister that she wouldn't let that happen. Now she sneaks around and sings karaoke every week. She has always loved Tanner so when he suggests they get married for his image he will help break her into Nashville. But what they didn't expect was to find love along the way. 

I really enjoyed these two characters and how in the story they kept getting closer and closer. Tanner actually surprised me on how much he thought of her and wanted to see her smile all the time. It was actually pretty sweet of him. 

The one thing I had a issue with was that Tanner had been with her sister in past. I mean how do you get over something like that and try to be with the man you love? Plus her sister didn't make the situation any less awkward when they spoke. 

I liked that Tanner finally put someone's needs before his own. It's like he grew up. He kept his promise to try to get her into Nashville even though he wanted her to stay with him. I wish he told her sooner that he loved her but then she probably wouldn't have got the chance to live her dream for the months she did. 

In this sports romance Tanner actually played some football which helped make the story more believable. I have been find lately that some authors who write in the sports romance genre are leaving out the field time but it's not an issue for Davenport. 

If you love sports and romance this is the book for you. I am excited to read Bella's story and to see what goodies Davenport will have for us.

While all books in this series can be read as standalones, you'll most likely enjoy reading the other books in the Game On in Seattle sports romance series:

USA Today Bestselling Author Jami Davenport writes sexy contemporary and sports romances, including her two new indie endeavors: the Game On in Seattle Series and the Madrona Island Series. Jami lives on a small farm near Puget Sound with her Green Beret-turned-plumber husband, a Newfoundland cross with a tennis ball fetish, a prince disguised as an orange tabby cat, and an opinionated Hanoverian mare. She works in computer support in her day job and juggles too many balls, but she wouldn't have it any other way.
