FUMBLED (The Playbook #2) by Alexa Martin

A fumble in American football occurs when a player who has possession and control of the ball loses it before being downed, scoring, or going out of bounds. – Wikipedia
In contemporary romance it occurs in second chance romances. Boy finds girl. Boy lose girl. Boy finds girl again. Football and romance – its kinda my catnip!


A tight ass NFL star. A single mom. A kid who has to be reminded to take a shower. Oh yeah and glitter. Grab your copy of FUMBLED, this one is a touchdown! I had to force myself to put the book away at 3am – Work Work Work – who needs to work?

FUMBLED is an interracial romance set in the world of the NFL. It’s a true page turner from start to finish. If you are a football fan, you will love this story. Poppy is a single mom of a 9 year old – Ace. TK Moore is the hot shot wide receiver for the NFL Denver Mustangs. Poppy was the one, the only, love of his life until they went their separate ways. After almost 10 years they find each other living in the same city. But this is no longer high school.

When TK sees Poppy for the first time, he does not waste a minute telling her “I miss you” This is why I fell in love with the story. True love gets a second chance. Their chemistry is undeniable and unyielding.

The writing is very detailed with football details. There are actually chapters devoted to playing the game of football — imagine that?!  Action takes place on and off the field.  TK Moore loves to love Poppy and makes no secret about who and what she means to him. He is happy to be together with her again.  He is happy to introduce her to his teammates. He is happy for the world to know this is the love of his life.   She slides into his lifestyle with the help of a great cast of secondary characters.

Girlfriend friendships are very postive this time around. We no longer have a group of “mean girls” throwing the word  “golddigger” around.  She has a great best friend Sadia, who is a tinkerbell with fairy dust. She has new friends with the wives of the Mustangs : Vonnie, Charli and Brynne from Intercepted.   

I discovered Alexa Martin with her debut novel INTERCEPTED and I am totally in love with her books. Both are steamy and funny. A great read.

Mile High Kink Book Club highly recommends this romance for your carryon when you travel with your favorite team this fall.  Advanced Reader Copy gifted by netgally and publisher for review purposes  

Single-mother Poppy Patterson moved across the country when she was sixteen and pregnant to find a new normal. After years of hard work, she’s built a life she loves. It may include a job at a nightclub, weekend soccer games, and more stretch marks than she anticipated, but it’s all hers, and nobody can take that away. Well, except for one person.

T.K. Moore, the starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs, dreamt his entire life about being in the NFL. His world is football, parties, and women. Maybe at one point he thought his future would play out with his high school sweetheart by his side, but Poppy is long gone and he’s moved on.

When Poppy and TK cross paths in the most unlikely of places, emotions they’ve suppressed for years come rushing back. But with all the secrets they never told each other lying between them, they’ll need more than a dating playbook to help them navigate their relationship.
