D stretch marks than she anticipated but it's all hers and nobody can take that away Well ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe except for one personTK Moore the starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs dreamt hisntire 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 schoo. After absolutely loving the audiobook for Intercepted I was really Looking Forward To The Release forward to the release 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 love for the prior book Spoiler alert it didn t get betterI really dislike the secret baby trope and while this was presented as a somewhat unintentional one I still didn t The Fiend Next Door enjoy it Add in some drama that came and went nowhere stalkervil mother of the boyfriend and I was ready for this book to nd I did appreciate the author s attempt to focus on brain injuries caused by football but it didn t make for a captivating storylineI recommend skipping this one but definitely listen to the audiobook for Intercepted The downside to reading really good arcs months before they re released is having to wait ven longer for 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 finished this bookIn fanfiction I m a sucker 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 ven in anger and see Poppy s point of view and compromise And Poppy I love a character who s sassy and speaks their mindA bonus for 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
