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.
|I’m a little late to the Alexa Martin train but I’m here now! 🙂 I enjoyed book and am impressed it was her debut book.
I love the sports romance genre and finding out that the author has some personal experience in this genre made this read more fun.
“Alexa Martin is a writer and stay at home mom. She lives in Colorado with her husband, a former NFL player . . . Her first book, Intercepted, was inspired by the eight years she spent as an NFL wife.”
I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
