One of PopSugar's Best Romances of October
With the stakes this high, it’s no longer just a game for the Mustang’s quarterback in this romance by the author of Blitzed.
Elliot Reed is living her best life—or pretending to. She owes it to her dad’s memory to be happy and make the most of her new job as Strategic Communications Manager for the Denver Mustangs. Things are going well until star quarterback Quinton Howard Jr. decides to use the field as his stage and takes a knee during the national anthem.
As the son of a former professional athlete, Quinton knows the good, the bad, and the ugly about football. He's worked his entire life to gain recognition in the sport, and now that he has it, he’s not about to waste his chance to change the league for better. Not even the brilliant but infuriating Elliot, who the Mustangs assign to manage him, will get Quinton back in line.
A rocky initial meeting leads to more tension between Quinton and Elliot. But as her new job forces them to spend time together, Elliot realizes they may have more in common than she could've imagined. With her job and his integrity on the line, this is one coin toss that nobody can win.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It begins with a football star taking a knee and turns into a heart-melting love story. Whether or not you’ve already fallen for Alexa Martin’s Playbook romance series, listening to this audiobook will give you major feels. Quinton Howard Jr. is a Denver Mustangs quarterback who courts controversy when he kneels during the national anthem. When the team’s PR woman, Elliot Reed, is called in to manage the crisis, sparks fly—their all-business relationship turns sweet when Elliot gets to know Quinton and the noble motivations behind his choice. We love the way Martin focuses on Elliot’s personal journey as she learns to embrace her own biracial background. Narrator Soneela Nankani gives us a crystal clear picture of Elliot’s intense emotional arc, while Cary Hite adds his sparkle to Quinton’s undeniable charisma. Martin leans into her background as a biracial woman and former NFL wife, never shying away from exploring the complexities of her characters’ situation. Snapped is a very special romance because it doesn’t just feel good, it feels (and sounds) real.
