"Definitely a must-read!”—La La Anthony, New York Times bestselling author
Maxwell Lewis has to make the play of his life in order to breach the woman of his dream’s defenses in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.
Brynn Larson owes a lot to reality television and professional athletes. Her bar hit new heights of success after becoming a local haunt for the Denver Mustangs players and their WAGs. But although she’s grateful, that doesn’t mean she’s crazy. And that’s exactly what she would be to ever consider dating a professional athlete. Even if it’s Maxwell Lewis, whose shy smile makes her wonder what going on behind those beautiful brown eyes.
Maxwell knew from the moment he met Brynn that she was going to change his life. It was only a matter of time. But when he finally makes a move, fate conspires against him and everything goes wrong. Now he has to show her that their potential is real. Too bad for him, Brynn isn’t fooled by his glamorous NFL life, and when ghosts from both their pasts make a sudden reappearance, she must decide who she can trust. But when the person she’s most afraid of is herself, navigating life’s tackles is harder than anticipated.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lovers—or just friends? Alexa Martin tackles that eternal question in the charming third novel of her hit romantic-comedy series The Playbook. Sports bar owner Brynn knows exactly what kind of drama she’d be in for if she let herself fall for an athlete, but despite that she just can’t stop thinking about Denver Mustangs defensive back Maxwell. For his part, Maxwell is also crazy about Brynn, but there are tons of obstacles standing in their way, so he’s trying to keep it hush-hush. Filled with up-to-date pop-culture references and the buzz of city life, Blitzed is a cheerful modern romp that had us giggling all the way through. A big part of the audiobook’s charm is narrators Kristen Sieh and Sullivan Jones, whose performances as Brynn and Maxwell are bursting with attitude.
