Sports romance is one of my favorite sub-genres of the romance genre. They’re usually super indulgent and very quick reads – the perfect palate cleanser between heavier books. Snapped is the conclusion to the popular Playbook series – a series that I’ve had mixed experience with. Nevertheless, when I found out that this final book was enemies to lovers and tackled some very serious and important topics, I decided to give it a shot.
With the stakes this high, it’s no longer just a game for the quarterback in this romance by the author of Blitzed.
Elliot Reed is living her best life—or pretending to. She owes it to her dad’s memory to be happy and make the most of her new job as Strategic Communications Manager for the Denver Mustangs. Things are going well until star quarterback Quinton Howard Jr. decides to use the field as his stage and becomes the first player to take a knee during the national anthem.
As the son of a former professional athlete, Quinton knows the good, the bad, and the ugly about football. He’s worked his entire life to gain recognition in the sport, and now that he has it, he’s not about to waste his chance to change the league for better. Not even the brilliant but infuriating Elliot, who the Mustangs assign to manage him, will get Quinton back in line.
