Anybody who has ever read a sports romance novel knows just how addictive they can be. Personally, I tore through Elle Kennedy’s Off-Campus series a few years back, and a few of Cindi Madsen’s hockey player books. Are they fine literature? No. But they are often a quick, fun romp where you can check your brain for a few hours between heavy books. Heck, I use them to get myself out of reading slumps all the time. Needless to say, my expectations were high for Intercepted by Alexa Martin. As expected, this was a fun escape – far from flawless, but a fun ride regardless.
Marlee thought she scored the man of her dreams only to be scorched by a bad breakup. But there’s a new player on the horizon, and he’s in a league of his own…
Marlee Harper is the perfect girlfriend. She’s definitely had enough practice by dating her NFL-star boyfriend for the last ten years. But when she discovers he has been tackling other women on the sly, she vows to never date an athlete again. There’s just one problem: Gavin Pope, the new hotshot quarterback and a fling from the past, has Marlee in his sights.
Gavin fights to show Marlee he’s nothing like her ex. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to let her escape her past. The team’s wives, who never led the welcome wagon, are not happy with Marlee’s return. They have only one thing on their minds: taking her down. But when the gossip makes Marlee public enemy number one, she worries about more than just her reputation.
Between their own fumbles and the wicked wives, it will take a Hail Mary for Marlee and Gavin’s relationship to survive the season.
