Book Jacket Synopsis
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.

Review & Thoughts
Intercepted is the first book in a steamy and drama-filled romance series. It had similar vibes to The Wedding Date series by Jasmine Guillory but with the main character as a football player’s girlfriend and lots of catty drama!
The story is filled with steamy romance and drama but it also stresses the importance of friendship, loyalty, and trust. I enjoyed the relationship that breed between Gavin and our leading lady Marlee. I would definitely read or listen to the next book in the series!
In a Nutshell: Fun first novel in a steamy sports-themed romance series.
