Football practices going on down at the end of the street, tail-gate party recipes showing up around me, and oh yes, I was in the mood to dive into a football sports romance by a debut author.
Intercepted is the first in a series and I was all sorts of curious to crack it open knowing the book was written by a gal who is very familiar with the pro-football world. I found her writing style was a good fit and enjoyed the sassy and modern that crept in (though, yes, I tolerated the preponderances of hashtags) and cringed over the life on the inside of this world. It was an easy, fast read with an adorable hero who just wants to prove himself to her.
Marlee was an engaging heroine who had just made up her mind to stay away from pro athletes after her cheating ex when a former fling, Gavin, makes an appearance showing his interest and challenging her decision about men and sets out to prove to her that he isn’t her ex. And, he’s not the only challenge because the catty Queen B’s who rule off the gridiron make things tough on her stirring up a maelstrom of trouble that forces her to take it to them. Holy Hannah was the drama these gals stirred up nutso. I loved when she gave them what for. She cracked me up so much that I got looks from people (note to self, don’t read Alexa Martin books in public). Oh, and I loved her best bud, Naomi who wasn’t like the others.
It was a delightful surprise- simple, easy, fun, but just enough conflict in an authentic feeling setting- and now I want more. Those who love sports romance should definitely pick this one up.
My thanks to Penguin for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
