Intercepted I ve had a ton going on in my life so just warning you, my reviews are short and sweet while I get these all caught up First book, new author I wouldn t have guessed this by the way this author writes I am excited for from her.This book is refreshing, it was a sports romance that gave me wonderful feels Gavin Marlee are super cute and sweet. Intercepted was kind of an amusing read but I found several parts to be cheesy as well as hastily dramatic It read like a YA book and while I appreciated the modern setting and current pop culture references, the hashtagging was excessive Overall, there was just an amateur feel to the story Marlee dates Chris, an NFL player on the Denver Mustangs They ve been together forever but he hasn t put a ring on it The team gets a new QB, Gavin, who happens to be a handsome guy Marlee met in Chicago once, years ago, when her and Chris were on a break Cue Drama I m all about the independent woman, but if you don t want a guy who will go to bat for you when you need him to, why bother at all I know Intercepted is the first book in a series, but I do not plan to continue reading the rest A light read with some entertaining parts but at the end of the day, just not for me.

Marlee Public Enemy Number One, She Worries About Than Just Her ReputationBetween Their Own Fumbles And The Wicked Wives, It Will Take A Hail Mary For Marlee And Gavin S Relationship To Survive The Season Aside from the weird hashtag thing, this was SO GOOD until some really unnecessary conflict was introduced and resolved within the last 50 pages I would have given this a full 4 stars, but I m knocking it down to a 3.5 because I can t overlook how much I just didn t jive with the ending Wompppppp Although all that aside I am definitely going to pick up the next book in the series because I loved the writing and the characters so 4,5 starsI loved it,it was so good It has drama,it was fun and the romance was cute Such a nice surprise from a new author to me I have to admit from the moment I read the synopsis I couldn t wait to read it Gavin is the perfect hero, protective,swoon worthy and sexy Marlee is fantastic, I liked her, she is so funny I could easily relate with her I loved that she is so down to earth and not like the other girls I love the relationship between Marlee and Gavin The are sweet and cute, they make me smile most of the time You just complimented me while yelling at me Now I don t know if we re still fighting or if I get to kiss you yet I love the writing it was refreshing and easy to read I m excited to read books from Alexa Martin, I still can t believe it s her first book You probably haven t heard of Alexa Martin yet, so let me tell you that she s a debut author and I had the pleasure to read her first novel, INTERCEPTED She is the wife of an NFL football player so it probably comes as no surprise that her first book is sports romance, specifically, yeah, you guessed it, football Intercepted gives us a little insight into the not so glamorous life of a wife or girlfriend of a football player.Marlee Harper just broke up with her football player boyfriend of ten years Their relationship has always been a little rocky Marlee knew that Chris cheated on her in the past so when she finds incriminating photos she s had enough Her knight in shining armor is Gavin Pope, the teams new quarterback, who she had a fling with four years ago He saves her on numerous occasions which not only strengthens their friendship but also increases exponentially their attraction After Chris, however, Marlee doesn t have any inclination to date another athlete If Gavin Pope wasn t so irresistibly scrumptiousThis story is written from Marlee s point of view and we get all her inner monologues which can get really boring, repetitive and tedious Not so in Alexa Martin s debut This author s voice is quick witted, hilarious, smart and crisp to a point where it becomes absolutely addictive I loved the snark and humor in Intercepted so much, I couldn t put the book down.Marlee doesn t realize that her breakup and the relationship with Chris left scars Only through Gavin she realizes how damaged she is and I have to say I was immensely impressed that she never took the easy way, her decisions might look selfish on the outside but it was actually a way for her to grow, to give everyone, not just Gavin, the best version of herself It s not that I m not whole without him I am It s just that with him next to him everything shines brighter The group of WAGs Marlee used to be a part of is like hyenas It s awful how they gang up on her and single her out The vicious things they do and saya weaker person would crumble Marlee didn t always take the high road but her eloquent and sassy comebacks and the fact that she didn t let the b witches penetrate her thick skin made me admire her so much Nobody was allowed to disrespect her Nobody She said and did the unexpected and I loved that she made the conscious choice to sort herself out.Gavin is dreamy He wants Marlee fiercely and there is always a sense of her being IT for him He shows his appreciation in so many ways and makes her feel special He definitely is the full package and while he did get a little over protective at times it didn t really bother me What bugged me a little bit is his final screw up He knew Marlee was as independent as they come, making a huge decision without involving her was TSTL and I thought a little out of character, too This is where the hero s point of view would have come in handy since I wanted to know what the hell moved him to his actions However, the issue was resolved and wrapped up nicely so in the end it didn t really change my overall enjoyment of INTERCEPTEDHe s giving himself to me in a way I ve never experienced Unselfishly Without wanting anything in return except to let him love meIf a snarky writing style is your jam and you love sports romance give this a chance This book doesn t feel like a debut at all, it s solid, entertaining, funny and you ll be pulled into the story from the first page I m sure we ll hear of Alexa Martin. Find all of my reviews at m usually up Berkley s butt like a real hemorrhoid when it comes to their romance releases, but somehow I managed to miss this one and had to wait for my turn at the library to come around Luckily it queued up at the perfect time ROMANCE WEEK The story here is about Marlee, a graphic designer who has been dating NFL player Chris for the past 10 years except that one time when A case of mistaken laptops leads to Marlee accidentally logging in to the wrong e mail account where she discovers Chris latest little secret and forces Marlee to finally decide that After finally cutting ties with that terminal adulterer, Marlee finds she has a new suitor who has apparently been waiting in the wings for her to come to her senses for the past four years That suitor The newly acquired free agent Denver Mustangs quarterback Part second chance, part sports Intercepted is a romance that will steam up your spectacles I will warn you for those who aren t fans of gimmicky tidbits that have been incorporated in order to make a book memorable, you may find yourself screaming Obviously as someone who relies on a gimmick in order for people to enjoy my reviews, I have zero complaints about this methodology I also have zero complaints and will most likely never stop discussing these covers that Berkley keeps rolling out I loooooooooove that they have created sort of a signature look with these cartoony covers that lets the reader know they are picking up something they are going to enjoy And the catchphrase here Oh Berkley, all you do is win win win no matter what3 Stars because I never fully got on board the train to Splooshville with Gavin but rounded up because this was a pretty pretty pretty good time This was okay The hashtags got annoying real quick though. Intercepted by Alexa Martin is a 2018 Berkley publication Hilarious and super sexy Several years ago, Marlee had a one night stand with a guy she thought was an investment banker, while on a break from her boyfriend Now, not only is she back with her boyfriend, who happens to be a professional football player, they are engaged Life s good Well, except when it comes to the catty football wives Oh, and that one night stand He s the new star quarterback for the team For Marlee, her night with Gavin was unforgettable, scorched into her memory, but will he remember her after all this time This book was absolutely hilarious I can t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a romance novel Alexa Martin writes what she knows, since she spent eight years as the wife of an NFL football player now retired Her experience gives readers a little insider s peak inside the cliques, competitions, rules, and politics of professional football Of course, this also means getting a look at the underbelly, which is not all that glamorous and could be offensive, at times Although, I must put my own dig in here, and say that in reality I m sure it s a thousand times worse than anything portrayed in this book For a debut novel, I thought this book was well constructed, and fleshed out nicely The relationship drama might have dragged out a bit too long, however, that s better than feeling like the story was too rushed The characterizations were very well done, from the good to the bad, and points in between The dialogue is razor sharp and ladies, Gavin OMG This guy had me melting into a puddle, going all dreamy eyed, and walking around with a big goofy grin on my face There s some high drama, a little action, a little suspense, some steamy, sexy times, and a lovely diverse cast of characters Honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I started this book, since I don t read a lot of sports romance, especially if it is centered around football While I don t think this life sounds all that appealing, if sports heroes are your secret fantasy, you don t want to miss this one But, even if you aren t a sports fan, you ll still love the romance, friendships, and humor and GAVIN Unless I am mistaken, this novel is also the first of a planned series I obviously enjoyed this one enough to sign up for the next one 4 stars 4.5 starsI can t think of the last time that I enjoyed a contemporary romance book this much This is one you should definitely listen to the audiobook instead of reading it The intonation of the narrator s voice is just perfection she absolutely nails the funny lines and there are a LOT of funny lines Also, I think listening vs reading will help eliminate some minor annoyance towards the main character s over usage of hashtags toomanyhashtags.I don t want to spoil any of this book, so just know it s absurdly enjoyable Also, it s not perfect despite my rounded up five stars which I am solely basing that rating on how fun this was to listen to, this is romance people not a literary masterpiece There s definitely still some issues romantic attachment relationship that gets started a little too quickly for my taste especially on the guy s end and a break up because all CR books have a temporary break up in it that didn t really make 100% sense to me and was resolved in a kind of awkward fashion But I am totally forgiving this book for those things because I was too busy smiling like a lunatic while listening to it.Go listen to this
