No one quite writes a sports romance novel as well as Jami Davenport does, I was so excited to start her new series Men of Tyee and Sacked in Seattle is book 1 in this series, it did not disappoint, what a great start to a new series. We have met Riley and Tiff before but now they are all grown up, sweethearts given a second chance at love but not without issues, Tiff had teenage problems that caused her to run away from Seattle but then even bigger problems bought her back, she is not ready to open up and let Riley know she has always loved him so when she saw him for the first time in years it was easy to run and hide once again. Riley has never gotten over his first real love and is intent on showing her their love is real and being together is right but he not only has to convince Tiff he also has to convince his family who are sure she will run and break his heart once again. Riley and Tiff both have secrets from their pasts and if their relationship is going to work they both need to open up and let those secrets go, will they be strong enough, guess you need to read the book to find that out. This book is a emotional roller coaster, I was drawn in from the very first page and I laughed and I cried as Riley and Tiffs story unfolded. I loved the characters and I loved the journey they needed to take to get their HEA. Great start to what looks like a brilliant series, looking forward to more from the Men of Tyee

4.5 star Review Sacked in Seattle: Game On in Seattle Rookies (Men of Tyee #1) by Jami Davenport This is book one in her exciting new series and I have to say that she is off to a flying start; I do believe she has another winning series on her hand. Having met Riley and Tiff before, we fast forward a few years to where these two are given a second chance at love. Tiffani ran from Riley and Seattle years ago but now she is back and attending the same college. Still devastated and caught up in her past she finds it impossible to move on and embrace the here and now. Her walls are up and she has no intention of letting anyone, least of all Riley breach them; however she hasn’t counted on Riley's determination to get his second chance at happiness with her. What an emotional roller coaster of a read this book was. Sacked in Seattle had my stomach tied in knots, crying and laughing and praying that these two would make it through and get the happily ever after that they both deserved. Will the secrets from their pasts, come back to haunt them or will Riley and Tiff finally face the past head on and move forward? One click to find out.

Riley Black has been holding out hope for a long time that his friend and crush would see him as he sees her, and finally give them a shot at forever. He knows the sparks bouncing around between them mean something... if only he could find a way to get her to admit it too. They share a devastating past, and also a night of passion that he has never forgotten, and he wants nothing more than to recreate that night and keep it on repeat. And now that she is back in town, attending the same school, he knows it's now or never... he has to make his move and finally get his girl! Returning to Seattle and signing-up to attend Tyee University has been an unnerving experience for Tiffani Vernon, mainly because the town holds so many memories, some very bad memories, but she is ready to put them behind her and move on once and for a all. But in order to do that she must face the source of some of those memories too, her friend Riley. She has harbored a crush on him since high school, but it has never been the right time to explore all the feelings and sparks they share... then again maybe now is the perfect time!! The moment my eyes hit the page, the words took over and I found myself hanging on on dearly to every one of them, it was quite evident this one was going to leave a serious mark... and boy did it ever!! These characters got to me early on, they had my emotions churning, and had me teetering on the edge of my seat in hopes they would find way to deal with their devastating past and possibly find love along the way too. And without giving too much away, I will just say I thoroughly enjoyed what I found, it was a second chance romance that checked all my boxes and left me smiling! Highly recommend this one, the stunning story line will grip you from the first page and have you hanging onto every word long after the page is swiped! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.

**Advanced copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review** I was so excited to get my hands on this first book in the Men of Tyee series, but especially after I found out it was going to be about Riley and Tiff! We have met both of these characters in Jami Davenport's previous novels, "Crashing the Net" and "Melting Ice" respectively, but now they are all grown up! Riley Black has loved Tiffani Vernon since high school. The two of them endured a horrible tragedy together while they were in high school that helped to bond them together, yet it also left Tiff with some deep and painful scars. Following one passionate night at the end of high school, Tiff hightailed it out of town and only now, three years later, has she finally returned to their hometown although for monetary reasons, not because she really wants to be back. While one might think Tiff would have been looking for Riley once she returned to town, it was the exact opposite. She's doing everything in her power to avoid him because the last thing she wants to have to do is to face the one person who could actually make her have to lower her walls and let someone in. The last thing she wants to do is admit that she has been crushing on Riley as long as he has been on her. When Riley tries to prove to Tiff that they belong together for the long haul, she has a very different view. She doesn't want to hurt him and she's not sure she can give him everything he wants. While he understands she's dealing with things, he isn't going to take no for an answer and he sets out to prove to her that they are meant to be. Will Riley successfully topple the walls that Tiff has so expertly erected or will both of them be left brokenhearted? This is by far one of my favorite Jami Davenport books and I think it is one of her best works to date. It was wonderful to see these two characters that we knew as youngsters grow up to be these complex people who you just want to see happy. It was also great to get to have some of our other favorites from Jami's "Game On" series make appearances as well. I would highly recommend this book - it's one you're not going to want to put down once you start!

Sacked in Seattle is the kind of story that draws you in from the first. Riley and Tiffani live a journey that is built on emotion. From heartache to guilt these characters are haunted by a history that is as tragic as their ever burning love. Tissues required. Once the trip begins, it's hard to walk away until the end.

This was such a great start to a new series! I loved it!! What an emotional ride this was!!! This is a second chance romance and I just love those, because lets face it, everyone deserves a second chance at love. They are usually messy and this one is as well, but you can't help but want these two awesome characters to finally achieve their HEA together. Even though Riley & Tiff had feelings for each other back in high school, unfortunately a tragedy tore them away from each other. And even though Tiff ruined Riley back then, he has always loved her and seeing her again only reignites that flame. I was totally rooting for them to work through their past and have a future together. Love conquers all, right? Another awesome story from Jami Davenport!!

Riley Black and Tiff Vernon went to the same high school. Riley got shot protecting Tiff when her ex-boyfriend started shooting. As soon as Tiff graduated she left town to get away from all the memories of that day. Due to some family issues she is forced to come back home to finish college 7 years after the shooting. Though she tries to avoid Riley and the memories he is trying to reconnect with her. Riley never got over the attraction he felt for Tiff in high school. After one memorable night together she left for school and he suffered heartache. Now that Tiff is back he is determined to rekindle their romance.

OMG! I loved this book but again I love all of Jami's work. It was so great seeing Riley and Tiffany as "grown-ups". They each had unvoiced crushes on each other in high school and then the unthinkable tragedy occurred. Tiffany leaned on Riley to get through the aftermath and then just moved from the area when she graduated. 3 years later she is back, attending the same college as Riley and still having issues and guilt dealing with what happened in high school. Riley has issues of his own from his past but has seemingly dealt with the issues in high school. A chance encounter at a party, Tiffany disappears when she sees Riley, Riley can't forget her...then unbelievably they end-up as neighbors. This is such a powerful and inspiring journey of growth as well as overcoming ones past to be happy with the present and the future. Riley and Tiffany have their issues but they learn about each other and how to overcome them. Again, take a chance on this book and you will not be sorry! I was given this book as an ARC copy for an honest review. I believe I have done that without spoilers...hopefully given you enough to want to read more!

"Sacked in Seattle" is an enjoyable sexy New Adult romance which kicks off Jami Davenport's new Men of Tyee series. The Hero and Heroine of "Sacked in Seattle" were secondary characters in Jami Davenport's Game On in Seattle series. Riley's the nephew who came to live with his Sockeye hockey-playing uncle in "Crashing the Net". Tiff appears in "Melting Ice"; the 3rd book in the Game on in Seattle series. The couple's backstory occurs seven years prior when they were high school Freshmen. They survive a traumatic and deadly school shooting. Tiff's ex-boyfriend was one of the shooters and she was his main target. Three close friends died that day and Riley was shot attempting to shield her from the gunmen. Tiff still carries around guilt for that event. She feels her breaking up with her boyfriend was one of the straws that pushed him over the edge. Riley fell in love with Tiff during high school and never stopped even though she didn't return his feelings. He had hoped she would have a change of heart. But even though they had sex after graduation Tiff left town the next day without even telling Riley good-bye. Three years later and Tiff unexpectedly moves back to Seattle. Her parents are divorcing and she can't afford out-of-state tuition. Now she's attending the same college as Riley. Riley had thought he had gotten over Tiff. However the moment he sees her he realizes he never stopped loving her. He believes she's the one and if she gives them a chance they can have a beautiful future. Unfortunately whenever Tiff is around Riley everything from that horrific day hits her. She hears gunshots and screams, smells blood and gunpowder, and sees the looks of fear on her friends' faces. "Sacked in Seattle" is a straight up sexy New Adult romance. Jami Davenport peppers the novel with sparkling side characters. Riley's best friend Gage and Tiff's bestie Alisa and gay roommate Wayne are wonderful. I truly hope there are books for them in this series. Gage hinted at an intriguing backstory for himself. Riley is a solidly romantic Hero; more romantic that Tiff. He's a firm believer in True Love, The One, and Happily Ever Forevers. Once Tiff confesses to herself that she's been in love with Riley all along; she becomes a really likable character. "Sacked in Seattle" has a steamy sweet romance and a compelling storyline. Riley and Tiff are excellent main characters. This novel is a fabulous "kick off" to the Game On in Seattle Rookies (Men of Tyee) series. This seems like this will be a strong New Adult romantic series. To read the entire review please visit: This novel was provided, voluntarily read, and honestly reviewed.

A well-deserved second chance sports romance This is a new off-shoot series where you will re-connect with other characters from previous series. However, this will stand-alone as I haven't read all of Jami's books YET and had no problem with the story. Riley and "Tiff" are connected due to a tragedy in high school that no one should have to go through. While Tiffany ran away from everything over 3 years ago and broke Riley's heart, Riley has healed from their traumatic experience, but he is scarred from a difficult childhood. Can these two heal each other? They were frustrating as they each stubbornly refused to open up to the other one. However, love conquers all and the supporting characters add to the depth of the story. Uncle Coop is still frustratingly stubborn. Overall - a good sports romance that has more depth than most. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy.

I am not normally a fan of YA stories, mostly because my kids are in that age range, but I loved this story. I had to know how life turned out for Tiff and Riley. Meeting during a tragic emotional event in high school these kids are all grown up. Tiff is back in Seattle and Riley is living his dream playing college football. He’s never gotten over her, she can’t get beyond her nightmares, will they be able to coexist on the same campus? This was so well written and the story was so pure. I loved getting another glimpse of Coop and Izzy and the family they have created. This was an awesome installment to this series. It’s a must read and I highly recommend it! **I received an ARC of this book for an honest review

Jami Davenport’s SACKED IN SEATTLE is a hit. I adored this book. I fell in love with Riley Black in book 2 of the Game On in Seattle series, CRASHING THE NET. I enjoyed hearing Riley’s and Tiffani Vernon’s story. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. Riley is a wonderful character. He had a horrible childhood. He was fortunate enough to be taken in by his uncle, Cooper in book 2, CRASHING NET. He subsequently was held hostage along with Tiffani in high school shooting his freshman year. This book takes place seven years later, during their senior year of college at Tyee University on Lake Union in Seattle. Both Riley and Tiffani have many scares from their past. Riley keeps his childhood a secrete, and it comes back to haunt him. He has gone through more than any person should have to. Despite everything he has been through, he is a wonderful individual who is stronger for his trials and tribulations. He and Tiffani have a complicated relationship. Both grow tremendously throughout the novel. Jami Davenport is an exceptional writer. I love her work and writing style. I’m excited about this new spin-off series, Man of Tyee, and cannot wait for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Oh I love to read Jami Davenport's Sport Romance Novels! I was so excited to start the Men of Tyee book with Sacked in Seattle. I squealed with joy when I found out the book was Riley and Tiff's story! They are all grown up now! Even though Riley never stopped loving Tiff, he didn't realize that they are still broken. Riley may feel that he has healed from a dreadful day from his past, but did not realize he was broken way before then. Tiff is trying to live day by day. She tries to move forward but has not really let go of the past. When she comes back into Riley's life, I was shocked of the little support she got from his family. No one really wanted her to be around him. This story was so different on so many levels, but for a heroine to have to redeem herself was something different. It's always the male that is the a*hole, but this time around it was Tiff. Slowly Riley made Tiff open up and we saw her for her true self. She was amazing. Sacked in Seattle caught my eye with football, college days, and love that never dies. The drama that these characters go through was stomach twisting. I am predicting the next book of the series will about Riley's best friend Gage. There was a story building up on the sidelines and I can hear Gage saying he will be back. This series can be addicting for me.
