Praise for Intercepted
“Intercepted was so much fun to read! For anyone who has been yearning for a great, hilarious, and thoughtful romantic comedy about a black woman in the world of the NFL, you need this book...I finished this book with a big smile on my face and that gooey, good book feeling in my chest.”—Jasmine Guillory, USA Today bestselling author of The Wedding Date
“Fast, fun and absolutely engaging. A smashing debut!”—Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of Good Luck With That
“Reading Intercepted is like drinking wine and gossiping with your best girlfriends. It’s fast-paced, flirty, and laugh-out-loud funny, without the hangover the next day.”—Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient
“Love it! All the hot sports and romance action you could hope for.”—Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author
"[Marlee's] love story isn't about which football player is The One for her, it's about a woman claiming her independence on her own terms, even when a hunky guy keeps coming to the rescue."—NPR
"If you like steamy romance with a side of sports, this fun, fast-paced novel is for you."—HelloGiggles
"The writing is snappy, the pacing is quick, the romance is sublime, and the humor is off-the-charts. Alexa Martin delivers a stellar love story, and I can’t wait to see what she writes next."—USA Today
“Fresh voices and strong multicultural characters from every rung of the social ladder make Martin’s debut novel a must-read for fans of contemporary romance with a sporty twist.”—Booklist (starred review)
"Narrated in an irreverent first-person voice, this story about a betrayed woman who finds the courage to once again seek love is a cut above the usual sports-themed romance. Martin’s debut is fast-paced, fun and promising."—Book Page
“The ups and downs of love in the NFL are well portrayed with a heavy dose of humor and snark in Martin’s sports romance...Perfect for readers looking for a fun contemporary.”—Publishers Weekly
About the Author
Alexa Martin is a writer and stay at home mom. She lives in Colorado with her husband, a former NFL player who now coaches at the high school where they met, their four children, and a German Shepherd. When she's not telling her kids to put their shoes on...again, you can find her catching up with her latest book boyfriend or on Pinterest pinning meals she'll probably never make. Her first book, Intercepted, was inspired by the eight years she spent as an NFL wife.

Anyway, Intercepted has a funny heroine, Marlee Harper. Marlee is the girlfriend of Chris Alexander, a pro football player. Her only boyfriend has been Chris. She did have a one-night stand four years ago while they were on a break but she tries to avoid thinking about that night.
Marlee loves marketing but it has been hard to do what she wants to do because she has dedicated herself to Chris. She even attends the Lady Mustangs meetings which usually only football players wives can attend and she's continuously attacked by Courtney, the QB's wife. Chris is nothing but self-involved and when she finds out he's cheating, she breaks their ten-year-old relationship and moves out.
Things get heated when Gavin Pope joins the team as the new QB. He's good at his job, he's hot and it turns out he's Marlee's one night stand! At first, Marlee tries to avoid him because she's with Chris and later on because she doesn't want to date another football player. But, Gavin is unrelenting. He makes it impossible for Marlee not to try to be with him.
As I said earlier, this book is quick, funny and light. It had the perfect combination to entertain you.
I love how Marlee defended herself from the mean WAGs. I like how she did have a true friend within the meanies. I like how she went through life using hashtags. I like how her relationship developed with Gavin. Gavin was just perfect except when he did something which was completely out of character for him. I guess, we needed some drama and that was the only way to create it. Even with his misstep, I still ended up liking him.
I'm looking forward to Fumbled, the next in this series.
