    I can't think of the last time that I enjoyed a contemporary romance book this much!

    The intonation of the narrator's voice is just perfection; she absolutely nails the funny lines (and there are a LOT of funny lines). Also, I think listening vs reading will help eliminate some minor annoyance towards the main character's over-usage of hashtags (#toomanyhashtags).

    I don't want to spoil any of this book, so

    I don't want to spoil any of this book, so just know it's absurdly enjoyable. Also, it's not perfect despite my rounded up five stars (which I am solely basing that rating on how fun this was to listen to, this is romance people not a literary masterpiece). There's definitely still some issues: romantic attachment/relationship that gets started a little too quickly for my taste (especially on the guy's end) and a break-up (because all CR books have a temporary break up in it!) that didn't really make 100% sense to me and was resolved in a kind of awkward fashion. But I am totally forgiving this book for those things because I was too busy smiling like a lunatic while listening to it.

    Go listen to this!

    Aside from the weird #hashtag thing, this was SO GOOD........... until some really unnecessary conflict was introduced (and resolved) within the last 50 pages. I would have given this a full 4 stars, but I’m knocking it down to a 3.5 because I can’t overlook how much I just didn’t jive with the ending. Wompppppp. Although all that aside I am definitely going to pick up the next book in the series because I loved the writing and the characters so

    This is Alexa Martin's debut novel and what a debut it is.

    I really enjoyed her writing style, her characters, and her sense of humor.

    I'm not going to rehash the blurb or story line at length; however, the main character (Marlee) is a longtime NFL girlfriend in a sea of NFL wives and, because Martin herself is a former NFL wife (her husband is retired), I felt like we were getting a backstage pass to one of those players' wives TV shows - with none of the cameras, but ALL the

    I'm not going to rehash the blurb or story line at length; however, the main character (Marlee) is a longtime NFL girlfriend in a sea of NFL wives and, because Martin herself is a former NFL wife (her husband is retired), I felt like we were getting a backstage pass to one of those players' wives TV shows - with none of the cameras, but ALL the drama.

    Part of me hopes that they aren't all really

    heinous - and I'm sure some of the snark was dramatized for the story - but another part of me realizes some of the shit Marlee dealt with probably legit goes down.

    I mean, we have all seen some of those wife interviews/comments in which they say, "Well, we WE got traded," or "when WE started with [insert team name], blah, blah, blah..."

    I always think to myself, I don't see WE out there with the football, lady.

    But alas, I'm letting my jealously show...if only we could ALL be wives who lunch.

    Or whatever it is that rich,

    genetically gifted trophy wives do with their free time.

    But I digress.

    Back to the story.

    Shit goes down, obviously, and Marlee is forced to...reassess her life circumstances a bit.

    Insert romance.

    I really liked the H here, although some of his actions in the end didn't feel like they jived with who he was up until that point.

    Also, there was a LOT of fabricated OTT drama here, a little bit of funny hashtag insertion overkill as well..and let's just say the steamy times need some work; but all in all, this was a very enjoyable read and I look forward to more from Martin.

    This as a debut novel bodes for a promising career.

    Hilarious and super sexy!!

    Several years ago, Marlee had a one-night stand with a guy she thought was an investment banker, while on a break from her boyfriend.

    Now, not only is she back with her boyfriend, who happens to be a professional football player, they are engaged!! Life's good... Well, except when it comes to the catty football wives. Oh, and that one-night stand? He’s the new star quarterback for the team!

    For Marlee, her night with Gavin was unforgettable, scorched into her memory, but will he remember her after all this time?

    This book was absolutely hilarious. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a romance novel. Alexa Martin writes what she knows, since she spent eight years as the wife of an NFL football player. (now retired). Her experience gives readers a little insider’s peak inside the cliques, competitions, rules, and politics of professional football.

    Of course, this also means getting a look at the underbelly, which is not all that glamorous and could be offensive, at times. Although, I must put my own dig in here, and say that in reality I'm sure it's a thousand times worse than anything portrayed in this book.

    For a debut novel, I thought this book was well constructed, and fleshed out nicely. The relationship drama might have dragged out a bit too long, however, that's better than feeling like the story was too rushed. The characterizations were very well done, from the good to the bad, and points in between.

    The dialogue is razor sharp and ladies, Gavin!! OMG!! This guy had me melting into a puddle, going all dreamy eyed, and walking around with a big goofy grin on my face. There’s some high drama, a little action, a little suspense, some steamy, sexy times, and a lovely diverse cast of characters.

    Honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I started this book, since I don’t read a lot of sports romance, especially if it is centered around football. While I don’t think this life sounds all that appealing, if sports heroes are your secret fantasy, you don’t want to miss this one.

    But, even if you aren’t a sports fan, you’ll still love the romance, friendships, and humor… and GAVIN!! Unless I am mistaken, this novel is also the first of a planned series. I obviously enjoyed this one enough to sign up for the next one.

    **I’ve had a ton going on in my life so just warning you, my reviews are short and sweet while I get these all caught up**

    First book, new author. I wouldn’t have guessed this by the way this author writes. I am excited for more from her.

    This book is refreshing, it was a sports romance that gave me wonderful feels. Gavin & Marlee are super cute and sweet.

    The story here is about Marlee, a graphic designer who has been dating NFL player Chris for the past 10 years – except that one time when . . . .

    A case of mistaken laptops leads to Marlee accidentally logging in to the wrong e-mail account where she discovers Chris’ latest little secret and forces Marlee to finally decide that . . . .

    After finally cutting ties with that terminal adulterer, Marlee finds she has a new suitor who has apparently been waiting in the wings for her to come to her senses for the past four years. That suitor? The newly acquired free agent Denver Mustangs quarterback . . . .

    Part second chance, part sports

    is a romance that will steam up your spectacles. I will warn you for those who aren’t fans of gimmicky tidbits that have been incorporated in order to make a book more memorable, you may find yourself screaming . . . .

    Obviously as someone who relies on a gimmick in order for people to enjoy my reviews, I have zero complaints about this methodology : )

    I also have zero complaints (and will most likely never stop discussing) these covers that Berkley keeps rolling out. I loooooooooove that they have created sort of a “signature look” with these cartoony covers that lets the reader know they are picking up something they are going to enjoy. And the catchphrase here?????

    Oh Berkley, all you do is win win win no matter what . . . .

    Don't you just hate it when you are dating a professional football player and then a guy you had a one-night stand years ago joins the team? Totally awkward.

    This was a fun sports romance with a main character, Marlee, who was easy to like. Humor was used well throughout the book although I thought hashtags were used a few too many times. I preferred the first half of the book over the second as it felt like the story was being dragged on just for drama's sake. I liked Gavin but at times he felt

I preferred the first half of the book over the second as it felt like the story was being dragged on just for drama's sake. I liked Gavin but at times he felt a little too simple and one-dimensional. Overall this is a decent read if you are looking for something light and easy.

    Thank you to First to Read for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy! I was under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion.

    This was okay. The hashtags got annoying real quick though.

  • Brandice

    was kind of an amusing read but I found several parts to be cheesy as well as hastily dramatic. It read like a YA book and while I appreciated the modern setting and current pop culture references, the hashtagging was excessive. Overall, there was just an amateur feel to the story.

    Marlee dates Chris, an NFL player on the Denver Mustangs. They’ve been together forever but he hasn’t put a ring on it. The team gets a new QB, Gavin, who happens to be a handsome guy Marlee met in Chicago

    Marlee dates Chris, an NFL player on the Denver Mustangs. They’ve been together forever but he hasn’t put a ring on it. The team gets a new QB, Gavin, who happens to be a handsome guy Marlee met in Chicago once, years ago, when her and Chris were on a break *Cue Drama* I’m all about the independent woman, but if you don’t want a guy who will go to bat for you when you need him to, why bother at all?

    I know

    is the first book in a series, but I do not plan to continue reading the rest. A light read with

    entertaining parts but at the end of the day, just not for me.
