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.

Thoughtful Tackling of Difficult Topics

I started reading The Playbook series as a way to lose myself in a world not consumed by COVID. I thought I was there for the romance, but I fell in love with Martin’s portrayal of female friendship and radical self-love. It is clear from reading this series that Martin has experience being underestimated and judged living as the “wife of”, but she uses this experience to fuel characters that are smart, capable, and complex.

I knew that Snapped was going to resonate for me as soon as I read the author’s forward. As a multi-racial woman, with a similar experience of growing up surrounded by my white family rather than my family of color, Elliot’s struggle with identity politics struck a chord. Martin did a fantastic job of addressing some serious and contentious topics in the NFL without losing the unique and well-developed characters I’ve come to love.

Reality Romance done Right

I love Alexa Martin and the way she addresses real life issues in her romance novels. It allows the reader to relate and place ourselves smack-dab in the stories. SNAPPED made me think about the issues from new and different perspectives. Loved every minute of reading this novel . . . twice.
