Intercepted by Alexa Martin is a laugh-out-loud romance that should be enjoyed curled up on the couch in a blanket, by a warm fire while sipping a hot beverage. It’s full of fun characters who will keep you entertained.
Main character, Marlee, has been dating her NFL boyfriend since before he was drafted. Now it’s been ten years and they are finally engaged. The years have not been all fun and games for Marlee as an NFL girlfriend. Several of the wives have been downright mean to her because she isn’t a wife.
Marlee’s boyfriend is a self-centered (dare I say) prick, and he doesn’t deserve her. Soon, a new quarterback joins the team and Marlee realizes it’s the guy she had a one night stand with. Marlee hasn’t been able to forget about Gavin Pope since their encounter several years before when her relationship was on a break.
After a revelation or two surface about Marlee’s fiancée, she starts hanging out with Gavin. I enjoyed the two of them together. They have a fun relationship filled with a mutual respect. Marlee is 5’2” and doesn’t like confrontation but she has a big mouth when it comes to her best friend and her man. She speaks up and doesn’t back down even if it causes a brawl in the stands.
The wives in this book are so mean except for Marlee’s best friend Naomi. There are always bitchy women who are jealous and try to knock other women down instead of celebrating their achievements. That is how I saw the Mustangs wives.
Alexa Martin writes what she knows. As the wife of a former NFL football player, she has probably encountered a few mean wives. Her experience after spending eight years as an NFL wife gives an inside look at the cliques, competitions, rules and politics of professional football. Intercepted flows smoothly and the characters were engaging. It was such a fun and entertaining story and I’m glad I got to experience a glimpse into a side of the NFL we don’t usually experience.
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.
Until next time…enjoy the view from your passenger seat
