I Dare You Fall Sports Spotlight on Blitzed by Alexa Martin

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.  

About Blitzed

One of Buzzfeed’s 16 Romantic Books To Read This Fall
One of Popsugar’s Best Books for Winter

“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

Blitzed by Alexa Martin

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.

Praise for Blitzed and Alexa Martin:

“Alexa has done it again! Fans who enjoyed her previous work will appreciate Blitzed as a fresh perspective on romance in the sports world. Martin is an incredible storyteller and has a unique ability to blend fiction with real-life situations in the sports world. It’s an honest portrayal of the lives and romantic relationships of professional athletes. Definitely a must-read!”—La La Anthony, New York Times bestselling author

“Alexa Martin’s books are the ultimate reading escape filled with fabulous characters, witty, dazzling prose, and swoonworthy romances.”—Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestseller

“The lighthearted third sports romance in Martin’s Playbook series (after Fumbled) focuses as much on strong female friendship as it does on love. Readers will be delighted by this sweet romance.”—Publishers Weekly

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I have heard great things about this series by Alex Martin but haven’t had the chance to read any of them yet. I do love a good sports romance but there seems to be a lot more books that feature hockey than football.

I got the first book and didn’t know what to expect, but it was a blast of humor, gal power, and sizzling romance. Author was an NFL wife so she writes from experience. Each one shows a new aspect of pro football life through the eyes of the women which is great.

I read the first book and loved how the heroine grew so much even being involved with hot shot NFL players. I need to catch up as I haven’t had a chance to read the second or third book.
