Emma Maxwell wants a singing career. Tanner Wolfe needs to revamp his image to save his job as the quarterback of the Seattle Steelheads. The two form an agreement to help both their careers.
I love, love, love this book! Ever since reading Melting Ice: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle #5) I have been patiently waiting to read Emma and Tanner’s story, Blindsided. I was not disappointed.
Emma is an extremely likeable character. She is the sweetest of the Maxwell sisters. I liked that she finally goes after what she wants instead of doing what everyone expects of her.
I enjoyed discovering more about Tanner. It was interesting to hear his side of the story about what happened between him and his brother, Isaac (book 5). His personality is a lot different from Isaac’s. He wants people to like him. He is perceived as having confidence, however, in reality, he does not.
Despite what everyone else initially thinks, Emma and Tanner make a great couple. He had enamored her so long before they finally got together. They start out with an interesting arrangement. As they get to know one another, they complement each other well.
I thought Tanner’s agent was a little slimy. I did not like the man.
We already established in book five that Tanner’s dad in a piece of work, the man in evil. He makes an appearance in this story. I have chills just thinking about it, and not good
I found it interesting that the Seattle Gridiron Group (lead by the Reynolds family - owners of the Sockeyes) bought the Stealheads. I love that the hockey and football players hang out together.
Blindsided is a fabulous addition to the Game On in Seattle Series. While it could be read as a standalone, both Emma and Tanner are introduced early in the series, and I feel you appreciate their characters more having read about them in the previous books.
Jami Davenport is a wonderful writer. She is fantastic with her character development and plots. She creates believable and heartfelt stories that are hard to put down. I cannot wait for book 7, Bodychecking.
