Playbook, The Book 4
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.
I was so excited when I saw that Alexa Martin had another book releasing in the Playbook series. I devoured her first three books and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one!
I love how the author writes. It always grabs my attention and has me flying through the pages. She writes such colorful characters that I can so easily picture in my head.
While I have loved the first three books (they are all standalones, you can easily pick any book in the series and start there and be 100% fine!), I was pleased to see that this book dealt with current social issues. I know that some people may take issue with that for various reasons, but me — it made me love Snapped that much more! It is important for people to be able to see the struggles that others face with racism, identity, and taking a stand for something they believe in.
The characters and secondary characters are what make these books so special. I want to be able to hang with the girls at HERS (the super cool bar) and would love to have friends that really stand by me and are so invested in things working out for me. And that is what these women share — a true sisterhood.
For me, this book had it all — great characters, tension, romance, emotion, strong bonds of sisterhood, timely issues such as racism, and of course, football — all wrapped up in a sexy story that will keep you entranced from start to finish.
And yes, Alexa Martin, I definitely felt “the love and heart” that you put into this book. Thank you!
