D stretch marks than she anticipated but it's all hers and nobody can take that away Well exceptor one personTK Moore the starting wide receiver A Look Over My Shoulder: A Life in the Central Intelligence Agency for the Denver Mustangs dreamt his entire life about being in the NFL His world isootball parties and women Maybe at one point he thought his uture would play out with his high schoo. After absolutely loving the audiobook or Intercepted I was really looking Ravishing Ruby forward to the release of this latest book by Alexa Martin Sadly I was bored out of my mind I honestly would have uit it if I was not so thoroughly convinced that it HAD to get better based on my loveor the prior book Spoiler alert it didn t get betterI really dislike the secret Baby Trope And While This Was Presented As A Somewhat trope and while this was presented as a somewhat one I still didn t enjoy it Add in some drama that came and went nowhere stalker evil mother of the boyfriend and I was ready or this book to end I did appreciate the author s attempt to ocus on brain injuries caused by Days of Infamy: Military Blunders Of The 20th Century football but it didn t makeor a captivating storylineI recommend skipping this one but definitely listen to the audiobook Old Yeller for Intercepted The downside to reading really good arcs months before they re released is having to wait even longeror the next bookI started this book on my 30 minute lunch break and in 2 chapters the characters completely sucked me in That was at 1230 it s just after 7pm and I already Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer finished this bookInanfiction I m a sucker Lincoln: An Illustrated Biography for an athlete romance but in Fumbled there aren t any of the outlandishly stereotyped characters or tropes and I m completely in love with it TK was completely swoon worthy and I loved how he was always able to take a step back even in anger and see Poppy s point of view and compromise And Poppy I love a character who s sassy and speaks their mindA bonusor me was that though TK and Poppy are an interracial couple race isn t a heavy part of the storyLoved it 3 12 stars rounded up because I really enjoyed hanging out with these characters Poppy Patterson didn t manage to get to college thanks to the unplanned appearance of her son and light of her life Ace when she was 16 years old But she s doing okay On Being Human: Reflections on Life and Living for herself please let this one not beilled with hashtags More like 275 starsLet me start off by saying that if I d read book 2 I would have given it a 35 stars start off by saying that if I d read book 2 I would have given it a 35 stars seeing as I read Intercepted Frommers Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World first I m left with no choice but toeel this wayI ve anticipated this book the moment I inished book 1 in the series and waited or what seemed like a long time or book 2 It suuuuuuuuucks that I inish this book Who's There on Halloween? feeling highly dissapointed and uestioning whether I should pick up the 3 book What tainted my reading experience was theact that this book seems like the Jurisdiction fraternal twin to Intercepted and that just bothered me to no end Like really This book could have gone in another direction and explored so many other things and did at times the synopsis gave me the impression of this book holding so much potential instead this book chose to stick close to theirst SmhIntercepted and Fumbled similarities Marlee and Poppy both are independent black women with jobs living in a low income area barely making it Hip Pocket Sleaze: The Lurid World of Vintage Adult Paperbacks financially whoall Mookie: Life, Baseball, and the '86 Mets for whiteootball players rom their past Marlee one night stand Poppy highschool sweetheart who both unexpectedly and randomly bump into them after years of having no contact with one anotherBoth uestion the idea of proceeding into a relationship with their love interests due to misunderstandings Marlee Thought Gavin Just Wanted Gavin just wanted Clawback fling Poppy thought TK wanted nothing to do with her after she breaks some news to him Both are wrong about their assumptions Both are hesitant to proceed into a relationship with their love interests because of another person Marleeher ex boyfriend Chris who ends up hurting her and thus leaves her insecure andeeling unable to trust being in a committed relationship Poppy her son Ace whom she wants to protect and not have him ending up getting his hopes up high and thus getting hurt in the end Both carry unconfident thoughts throughout the entire relationships which plays a role in how they behave in their relationships and how much they present and hold back in their relationships Both have white woman who are envious of them which appears to be or no valid reason at all Marlee any and all women except 2 that come in contact with her Poppy Rochelle groupies and some wives And some of these envious woman plot to hurtsabotageexpose the protaganists to the internetmediaBoth have random people who try to hurt them Marlee the drug dealer and a random pair of drunk pedestrians on the train Poppy unknown stalkerBoth ace confrontation Sugar in the Raw: Voices of Young Black Girls in America from members of their love interestsamily Marlee Gavin s sister Poppy TK s momBoth have to deal with putting Cooking for Company fans in their place after overhearing them talk bad about their love interests Both had obstacles within their relation.
