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.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

The slowburn romance between Elliot and Quinton brings in readers unexpectedly as we dive into Snapped and watch them discover their chemistry for each other.

Snapped tells the story of Quinton Howard Jr. takes a knee during the national anthem during his game as the star quarterback for the Denver Mustangs. Because of that, Strategic Communications Manager of the Denver Mustangs, Elliot Reed must work with Quinton to figure out the commotion that he has caused. Slowly as Elliot and Quinton work together and get to know one another better, they start to realize maybe they’re compatible.

I gave Snapped four stars, enjoying every single moment Elliot and Quinton came together. Even though they would fight and butt heads and disagree with each other, there was no denying that they secretly enjoyed each others’ companies.

I loved Elliot and the way she was able to speak her mind freely. Elliot Reed is a biracial heroine who was not afraid to say what was on her mind and speak for what she believes. She’s passionate about her work and believes in herself when it comes to her job qualifications and has the confidence to do her job which is something I enjoyed while reading this. Elliot was a well developed character throughout this book and I loved seeing the way she grew as a character and toward her relationship with Quinton.

Quinton Howard Jr. is the definition of tall, dark, and handsome according to Elliot and I was completely in awe of his passion throughout the book to portray his thoughts when it came to the lack of race representation in the football industry. I loved the way even through the book you can feel how heartfelt and genuine he is when it comes to the work he starts to develop throughout the book. He was a sweet character and made me fall in love with him quickly with his caring acts and the way he treats people. Although sometimes he does questionable actions, he turns them around with actions that shows that he notices and he cares.

I love the way Elliot and Quinton’s relationship started off slow and they didn’t immediately be together. It was nice and refreshing to see the way they took their time around each other and even though it was specifically because they had to work together, you could see them slowly tread the line, wanting to be with each other even if one of them or both of them denied their feelings for the other. In the end I love the way they came full force to each other and connected. Their relationship sparked and flew everywhere and I couldn’t feel any happier when they finally realized their feelings for each other. They had conflict throughout the book but no matter what, they came to each other and helped each other understand.

Snapped made me feel happy while reading this and I enjoyed every step of Elliot and Quinton’s slowburn romance, anticipating every second of when they would finally be together.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
