    Super fun read...

    3.5 stars — Another book that brought me a lot of joy, but again…had a few tiny moments that made me cringe. And I will admit that reading this one directly following reading book 1, I did notice some similarities of jokes on occasion…not often, but there was at least one memorable instance. Let’s get the cringe out of the way first: there were times where Poppy’s attitude and reactions made my shy/sensitive soul flinch. Like the way she talked to and started getting up in the face of the fan girls on her first date with TK at the bowling alley. It’s the kind of actions that prevent me from ever being interested in watching reality TV shows, b/c while I LOVE sass, I don’t love aggression and possession (by either gender), and in your face stuff…and stuff that for *ME* borders on mean and over the top. For the most part Poppy wasn’t like that, but there were just moments here and there where I was drowning in second-hand embarrassment. Now BESIDES that, Poppy was pretty awesome. I loved how she was this strong single mom, but internally she was constantly worried about being enough for Ace…so basically like every other mom out there. I was constantly worried about how she was going to treat TK and him coming into their lives, but at every turn she surprised me. It’s not that she didn’t have a hard time sharing, but she was always up front with TK and she knew the right thing to do and always tried to do it. She was very strong in her convictions as well, and she stood by them, for better or for worse. TK was a bit of a surprise as well. From the glimpse we got in the first book, I expected to love him more than I did. I still really liked him, don’t get me wrong, but because of the background story playing out with him, I found myself angry and confused by him a LOT throughout the book. In the end, this was by design, and it worked well, but it left me on my toes for periods. Other than that story, I did love how he was all in once he found Poppy again, and once he accepted Ace, though I feel like I wish I knew more about what their relationship had been like when they were younger. The two of them together had some great moments, but a lot of their chemistry felt like it was based on the physical…which is cool, just not my most favourite. Ace was a pretty kick butt 9 year old, and he really felt his age. He was sweet and adorable with just that little bit of kid attitude. I loved watching Poppy try to embarrass him. I LOVED the strong set of female friends that Poppy comes to rely on, and how different they all were but, in general, were all very accepting of their differences. I’m always still a bit bummed when there are so many villainous girls in books…it’s not unexpected, I think I’m just personally getting weary of them. So the way Rochelle, Dixie, even Lydia, and the groupies were depicted was…eh, not my fave. But at least it was balanced by her diverse group of friends. I noticed the negative look at football in the first book, but it was even more prominent in this one. It was kind of an interesting take. I’m not completely sure how I feel about it altogether, but I *really* appreciated how TK’s story played out and the dangers that Ms. Martin shone a spotlight on. It was an unexpected bonus that I didn’t see coming (though perhaps I should have), and one that I thought she handled deftly. So yeah. Another book that gave me mixed feelings, but on the whole was a super fun read. I am super excited to see that Brynn’s getting a book, and I’m curious how that will play out.

    Review: Fumbled, by Alexa Martin

    I read the first book in the Playbook series last October, after seeing such great buzz about it. But I didn’t get around to reviewing it. I’m not making the same mistake for book 2, Fumbled. These are both great books, so please consider this an endorsement for Intercepted, as well as Fumbled. I feel that one of the best things about Martin’s book(s) is that she is able to make me care about football. I’m not a football fan. At all. But with the way Martin writes, I’m drawn into the excitement and emotions of the game when it’s presented in the book. I also think that some of this is accomplished by not making this a “football romance” in the same way other sports romances are. There’s football in the book. The hero is a big-deal player. But this book doesn’t revolve around the game. When the game is included, it’s done so to push the plot, character development, and endgame along. It’s not just to have the sport in the book. (Not putting down more sports heavy romances. This just works so much better for me.) I also really enjoy Poppy’s character. This is a second chance romance, as can be seen in the description. And while the relationship restarts early in the book, the relationship is also a slow burn all the way to the end. Poppy is so strong and protective of her son, Ace. No matter what seems to be happening between her and TK, she never forgets that she and Ace could get hurt at any time. Martin didn’t allow Poppy to get lost in the relationship and it’s not often I read of a character who’s strong in this way. Having two amazing books to start off this series, I’ll be finding myself wanting to fast forward to December for the release of Blitzed. Can’t wait to read Brynn’s story. I really want to know more about her!
