Review:Blitzed (Playbook #3) by Alexa Martin

Publisher: Berkley
Published: December 3, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Source: Finshed copy
Rating: 3 stars

Maxwell has finally met an opponent that he can't best in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.

According to Brynn Larson, Maxwell Lewis is more trouble than he's worth. She doesn't care if he's a football god with a rock-hard body that brings most women to their knees. After an encounter that ends poorly, she's not interested in giving him a second chance. The last thing Brynn expects is for him to turn up at her bar months later, hat in hand. It doesn't matter if he brings more customers to her business--she's still not going on a date with him.

Maxwell knows he made a mistake. He'd been waiting to make his move on Brynn since the day he laid eyes on her and he was finally ready to go for it until he screwed up. He wishes he could tell her the truth about what happened that night, but he just can't. He can't tell anyone, so he'll make amends and hope she'll forgive him.

Brynn's not like other women, though. Playing for the Mustangs doesn't impress her and gifts make her scoff. Max will have to bring his A game if he hopes to win her over.

Blitzed was funny, romantic, and just plain fun. Alexa Martin is quickly making her way to one of my favorites when it comes to romantic comedy. There’s something about a humorous love story to keep you on your toes.

Max and Brynn were a decent couple. Although there were questionable times that I really felt like Brynn could step up for her man better. That’s just me though. I liked her and I love her bar HERS. If I went to bars, that would definitely be one I could find myself going to.

While I think Martin does well, (and is one of the faves, after all) this wasn’t my favorite book. The female friendships are what kept me turning the pages. The romance came second. I enjoyed most of the interactions but sometimes I felt underwhelmed with it all. Overall, good story and swoony hero!
