New Release Tuesday: Intercepted

I’m so not a fan of any sports at all, except when the players are characters in romance novels. It can get so messy and entertaining, you know? All the traveling and groupies and wives and childhood sweethearts, etc. add the perfect amount of drama. I was reluctant to read Intercepted because it’s Alexa Martin’s debut book, but I read her bio and it said she was married to a former NFL player, so I dove in.

Marlee Harper has been an NFL girlfriend for 10 years. Longer than usual for most. Her boyfriend Chris is the quintessential football player. Big house he doesn’t need. Flashy car. He makes Marlee join the player’s wives group, the Lady Mustangs, even though they see her as “just a girlfriend”. Of course she has nothing in common with these botoxed, mean girls but she endures it because she loves Chris and wants to support him and his career. He’s under extra stress right now because the team is bringing in a new quarterback and apparently that means something to wide receivers. Who knew? *shrugs* Anyway, this new hotshot quarterback, Gavin, just happens to be a man from Marlee’s past. Chris and Marlee break up, for totally unrelated reasons, and she swears off professional athletes forever. Gavin doesn’t care about that, though, and seems hellbent on changing her mind.

This was such a fun book to read. Alexa Martin has written a hilarious, sexy novel filled with lots of insider football tidbits. The scenes where Marlee attends the Lady Mustang meetings with thealone are worth picking Intercepted up. Writing this review makes me want to read it all over again and I can’t wait for her next book in the The Playbook series, Fumbled, due out Spring 2019.

Goodreads Rating: 4 stars

I received a complimentary copy of this e-book from the First to Read program and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
