Many are in the know about Alexa Martin’s phenom Playbook series. Our event would be incomplete if we didn’t included the latest new release in the series, Blitzed, to spotlight for our event.
My first impressions…
I was already in full anticipation after that sweet prologue, but then Brynn’s bar full of celebrities and the taste of long-hoped success, a sizzling silent attraction for the shy pro football playing Maxwell who reciprocates it seems, a phone interruption, and the destruction of top-shelf tequila when a phone and glass of whiskey are flung in blind rage past Brynn’s head. Brynn’s bar is shattered and Maxwell has some ‘splaining to do about that phone call that made him go all berserker on her bar. Annie and I have to know what comes next.

“Definitely a must-read!”—La La Anthony, New York Times bestselling author
Maxwell Lewis has to make the play of his life in order to breach the woman of his dream’s defenses in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.
Brynn Larson owes a lot to reality television and
professional athletes. Her bar hit new heights of success after becoming a local haunt for the Denver Mustangs players and their WAGs. But although she’s grateful, that doesn’t mean she’s crazy. And that’s exactly what she would be to ever consider dating a professional athlete. Even if it’s Maxwell Lewis, whose shy smile makes her wonder what going on behind those beautiful brown eyes.
Maxwell knew from the moment he met Brynn that she was going to change his life. It was only a matter of time. But when he finally makes a move, fate conspires against him and everything goes wrong. Now he has to show her that their potential is real. Too bad for him, Brynn isn’t fooled by his glamorous NFL life, and when ghosts from both their pasts make a sudden reappearance, she must decide who she can trust. But when the person she’s most afraid of is herself, navigating life’s tackles is harder than anticipated.
