With the stakes this high, it’s no longer just a game for the 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 becomes the first player to take 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 only leads to more tension between Quinton and Elliot. But as her new job forces them to spend time together, she realizes they may have more in common than she could've ever imagined. With her job and his integrity on the line, this is one coin toss that nobody can win. (Goodreads)

The Playbook series by Alexa Martin is hands down one of my most favorite sports-themed romance series that I have read so far, and I absolutely thought the series had ended with the third book, Blitzed. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that there was going to be a fourth book in the series! To say I was ecstatic would be an understatement. I was so excited to read Snapped!

Confession time … I am not exactly a fan of sports. I used to watch football all the time but had to stop because it made my anxiety skyrocket, which is not a good thing for me. When I started reading this series, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Though football may be the theme, it’s definitely not the main focus of the stories, and because of that, I ended up LOVING this series.

Snapped is the fourth and newest book in the series, and it’s all about Elle and Quinton. These two characters had a bit of a rocky start and had a very, very slow burn relationship, but I really enjoyed them together. And that slow burn romance was very, very worth it in the end. I loved watching their relationship grow throughout the book!

I was also VERY happy to see some of the characters that we know and love from the previous books in this series again. I LOVE the friendships that these ladies have! And it was so great when they brought Elle into that friendship like she’d been there all along. Books with strong friendships are my favorite.

The storyline for Snapped has a bit more of a somber feel to it than the rest of the books in the series did. Both of the characters are going through major things in their lives, and you can definitely feel that as you read the story. There are also a lot of in the story that are relevant to things happening in the world right now, and I appreciate the author including her thoughts on these issues as well.

Overall; I really enjoyed this newest book in the Playbook series! I really hope that we get more books in this series in the future, and I’m thinking that we may see a book for Vonnie coming out soon? (I hope so because I LOVE Vonnie!) If Alexa Martin wants to keep adding books to this series, I will most definitely keep reading them. And if you’re a fan of romances, you should definitely check them out as well!
