"Four people. Four goals. Four endings.
Finding naked pictures of her best friend on her boyfriend’s phone wasn’t in Everleigh White’s five year plan. Neither was moving back to Los Angeles, the city of dreams that never managed to make hers come true. There’s only so many years you can be in love with your best friend before you realize he’s never going to love you back, after all. If only her ex would stop showing up at the gym where she works, she’d be much happier.
Being a father at nineteen wasn’t how Reid North, the Vipers’ wide receiver, imagined his life going, but when his ex-girlfriend tricked him into parenthood, he accepted it. Eventually. Now, with his ex on the verge of being released from prison, he’s holding onto full custody of his seven year old son, Leo. Football and Leo have left Reid no time for dating… Until Everleigh comes back.
His best friend his whole life, Everleigh never knew Reid loved her. She left before he could tell her. Now she’s back in front of him, and he’s not letting go. Even if all he gets is her friendship again. But in a city like L.A., dreams come true when you’re least expecting it.
So do nightmares.
With their exes beating down their doors with demands and explanations, their hesitant and building relationship is threatened at every corner. They’re at serious risk of being intercepted by the past, and that’s a ball Reid is determined to catch.
Except desperation can lead to stupidity—and Reid soon realizes he can’t catch every ball, no matter how perfectly it’s thrown to him. This time a fumble could cost more than a few points.
It could cost him everything.
Intercepted is the third and final book in the By His Game series and can be read as a standalone, although it is advised to read Blindsided and Sidelined before, in this order.
"Love can be right without being right now.
Love can be always without being ever."
If you thought that Corey and Jack were amazing, hot, a package... You are sorely mistaken! There's a new guy in town and his name is Leo North!!!
Oh shit! It was Reids's book.. Sorry! Hahahaha
This book is full romance, playfulness, heart, vulnerability and raw emotions.
Intercepted tells us the story of Everleigh White's return California and her subsequent meeting with Reid, her childhood best friend. Since their childhood, Ever and Reid have had a connection that developed over the years and intensified.
When Reid went off to college and Ever graduated high school, they never told each other how they felt. Those three words were just hanging over their heads.
But when Reid decided to finally tell Ever his true feelings, she ran away and shut everyone out, especially Reid. She believed that it was important to keep distance from Reid because of his new responsibility as a dad and a major football player.
But all of that was in the past. Now, Ever is back n town and the feelings she and Reid had for each other did not fade away. It intensified to such a level that couldn't be around each other without feeling that crackling chemistry.
The big question or questions that arise are... Will Ever stay and finally acknowledge her love for Reid? Will they finally be more than friends? But most importantly will they let their past intercept and change their life forever?
Like any other Emma Hart book, the characters were real. They were raw, vulnerable, lovable and everything else that you can think of.
Now its time for the most awesome, sassy, crazy-pants, lovable charterer to shine!!! Ladies, I bring to you (more like Emma bring's to you) LEO NORTH!!!
God! This is kid is absolutely adorable! His quick acceptance for Ever, his love for everyone around him.. I wish I could take him out of the book and keep him with me. A little glimpse on the little guy..
"You should have seen some of the catches I made! I was like you and Dez Bryant all mixed into one hot little second grader."
If you for one second you thought that Mila or Macey were sassy, well, they don't have anything on Leo! And add Ever to the mix... You just got a dish served full of never-ending sass!
Ever and Reid they simply belong with each. I absolutely love the conclusion of this series and left a huge grin on my face. Oh and the butterflies I had throughout..
"You're diamond, baby. Beautiful and unbreakable"
"Diamonds fall out."
"Still don't break."
