"Definitely a must-read!” (La La Anthony, New York Times best-selling author)

Maxwell Lewis has to make the play of his life in order to breach the woman of his dream’s defenses in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.

Brynn Larson owes a lot to reality television and professional athletes. Her bar hit new heights of success after becoming a local haunt for the Denver Mustangs players and their WAGs. But although she’s grateful, that doesn’t mean she’s crazy. And that’s exactly what she would be to ever consider dating a professional athlete. Even if it’s Maxwell Lewis, whose shy smile makes her wonder what going on behind those beautiful brown eyes.

Maxwell knew from the moment he met Brynn that she was going to change his life. It was only a matter of time. But when he finally makes a move, fate conspires against him and everything goes wrong. Now he has to show her that their potential is real. Too bad for him, Brynn isn’t fooled by his glamorous NFL life, and when ghosts from both their pasts make a sudden reappearance, she must decide who she can trust. But when the person she’s most afraid of is herself, navigating life’s tackles is harder than anticipated.

Critic reviews

"The lighthearted third sports romance in Martin’s Playbook series (after Fumbled) focuses as much on strong female friendship as it does on love. Readers will be delighted by this sweet romance." (Publishers Weekly)

"Alexa has done it again! Fans who enjoyed her previous work will appreciate Blitzed as a fresh perspective on romance in the sports world. Martin is an incredible storyteller and has a unique ability to blend fiction with real-life situations in the sports world. It’s an honest portrayal of the lives and romantic relationships of professional athletes. Definitely a must-read!" (La La Anthony, New York Times best-selling author)

This was an Okay Story

This book was mediocre at best....This series came so highly recommended....and all I can say is I beg to differ! This was an audiobook series I listened to for over 8 hours and there was a male credited for narrating...that male said MAYBE 10 words in the first chapter....this book had 42 chapters plus an epilogue.....and We haven't heard from the male narrator since....which was truly unfortunate...because he has a great voice and I was looking forward to his narration. The story was about an educated defensive player and the bar owner (where the players wives and girlfriends hung out) getting together....all of this author's stories are about interracial relationships....most of the dialogue use is not realistic of black women or black men...all I can say is that I'm happy I'm able to get my credit back not worth staying in my library.

Hilarious and entertaining

I enjoyed Intercepted and Fumbled, but Biltz had me laughing the most. Brynn was brought to life by the narration. Definitely recommend.

Awesome!

A really fun read! I both read it and listened via Audible. The narrator did a wonderful job, and I recommend either book format.

Excellent job narrating by Kristen Sieh

I loved this book when I read it when it first came out. Now listening to the audio I love it all over again. Kristen Sieh does an amazing job narrating the book. Listening to her I can totally picture Brynn and Maxwell and visualize all their trials and tribulations, their parents h from friends to lovers and Brynn’s adventures with the Lady Mustangs.

Just Ok

The story with the brother never really came to light...why was he out to get max...i kept waiting for more details there but it never unfolded...just a very safe story with no shock factors at all

Excellent story-telling; slightly rushed plot

I anxiously awaited the next installment in this series. I think Alexa Martin is an excellent story-teller - the characters' expressions and actions vividly come to life as you read/listen. And let's face it, I seriously want to be friends with these ladies. But IMO, this was probably the weakest story of the 3. It felt rushed, and at times, quite predictable. I'm not sure if I just have a familiarity with the writer's style after reading Intercepted and Fumbled. Or if this book was, in fact, rushed to meet the upcoming deadline or overly edited to meet a particular word count. I wish the second half of the book had been expanded a bit more - I very much dislike how the entire storyline was resolved in like 2 chapters. That said, I am a solid Alexa Martin fan. So if there is a fourth book, I will eagerly download it and spend another 8-10 hours with the surprisingly likable Mustangs WAGs. Even if flawed, I highly recommend this book if you're looking for a fun, fantasy read.

Love Alexa Martin’s writing

I’ve read all 3 books in a week and throughly enjoyed her writing positive things when it came to men. I read plenty of fiction and the men/athletes tend to be the villains, but this was a refreshing change!!! Overall I enjoyed all of the story lines and I’m a sucker for book series. Can’t wait to read future books by the author.

Best one in the series

If you’ve been follow this series, you will enjoy this story. Most relatable one for me. I love have the mustangs WAGS have evolve into a caring family. Bryan was always in the background so it’s nice to finally learn about her. I think this would be an enjoyable movie on Netflix.
