I am a sucker for a sports romance and this one certainly delivered! It’s full of drama, suspense, jealousy, romance, happiness and so much more it kept me on my toes thats for sure. I was gripped from the start and it developed brilliantly it was one of those novels that you start and you get so engrossed you read it all in one sitting. I loved the characters and seeing them grow throughout the story they really made the story come alive and i could feel the emotions they were going through. I was at times in full on giggle mode especially with how the banter was between Lexi and Brett it made me smile alot. The novel is steamy and the chemistry flies between Lexi and Brett you can feel it pouring of the pages. I absolutely enjoyed every second of this novel and i can’t wait to read more from this author.
Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance is the first book in The Big Apple Series by Alexa Summers. I had never read anything by this author and if this book is anything to go by, I’ll be sure to read more as this is a fantastic book.
This book is well written and has great believable characters. Lexi Driver is an ambitious sports journalist at the top of her field in what is usually a male dominated world. Unlike other females in the same role, she got to where she was by damn hard work and being good at her job and not by offering sexual services to move up the ladder.
Brett Brock is a quarterback who has been playing second string to top player Dion but when Dion gets injured, Brett finally gets to show just how damn good a player he is.
When interviewing Dion in the locker room, Brett’s towel falls giving Lexi more than an eyeful. Unfortunately her cameraman turns and Brett’s crown jewels are shown on live tv for all to see. Brett is furious and is determined to bring down Lexi. However, what he didn’t foresee was that spending time with Lexi would result in him falling for her.
This is a fantastic story which keeps you gripped from the beginning right through to the very end. It also has a lot of humour, the banter between Lexi and Brett is hysterical at times. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like a steamy, funny romance.
Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance: The Big Apple Series Book 1 by Alexa Summers
I really really wanted to love this book and for 95% of it, I did. I loved Lexi, she stayed true to herself in a mans job and earned everything she worked so hard for.
Brett was a good guy if you took out the fact of his revenge plot. I just could not get over it. I didn’t find that to be a redeemable thing to do, at all. If we took that away, this book was 5 stars but it just didn’t sit as ok to me. Yes its fiction but its the point of it.
I was drawn right into this story, i laughed and learned a lot too, not a sports fan at all. Will be reading more from this author as I really enjoyed her writing style and her character development.
Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance is the first book in The Big Apple Series by Alexa Summers and A.J Phoenix. This story is a great sports romance full of suspense, dramatic events, and surprising developments. I really enjoyed the story, particularly the quirky, complex and interesting characters. They really made the story come alive and gave it extra depth, emotion, fun, romance and tension. There were characters I loved, and characters I loved to hate. You will know what I mean when you read all the details for yourself. This was my first read by these authors, and I am happy to say that it definitely won’t be my last.
Lexi Driver is a popular reporter for a local Sports Channel. She loves her job and is very good at it. But things go awry when she gets caught up in a locker room scandal that leaves her hot under the collar, in more ways than one- with an embarrassed and highly annoyed footballer to contend with.
Brett Brock has wanted to make a name for himself in football, but gaining attention by having his manhood broadcast for everyone to see had never factored into his plans- he had wanted his skills on the field to be noticed and appreciated, so being humiliated on live television was definitely not what he’d had in mind. He’s determined to gat a little payback and give Lexi a dose of her own medicine. But as he puts his plans in motion, he discovers that they are a lot more compatible than just intense chemistry.
But there seems to be someone hell bent on destroying not only their happiness, but also their careers. Little do either of them expect to get caught up in an even bigger scandal that puts everything they had built in serious jeopardy. What ensues definitely challenges them on many levels while they navigate the fallout from the plots and dastardly deeds.
This book was a great read and I really liked taking this journey with Lexi and Brett. I am a little torn as to what to rate this book, because the first half of the book was an entertaining 4 star read, but the second half of the book was definitely a riveting 5 star read- so therein lies my dilemma.
If you love a great sports romance with quirky and relatable characters who take you on a fun and romantic read, then this is definitely the book for you!
I’m looking forward to more from these authors!
Thank you, Ms. Summers & Ms. Phoenix!

I do love a good sports romance story so I was really looking forward to reading this one. It was one of those hard to put down stories and ok maybe it was a little predictable but I was still wrapped up in Lexi and Brett’s story. I loved the connection they had even if they didn’t know it! I loved the love/hate relationship and the banter they had between them.
I really liked Lexi, her job was obviously really important to her (got to be honest I would love her job) she was hard working, passionate and very driven. I loved that she wasn’t going to back down to Brett, I think the more he pushed her to apologise the less likely it was that she was going to! I think it was pretty obvious where the connection as going to lead with these two and it did lead to some pretty steamy moments!
I really liked the author’s easy going writing style, the story flowed well and I really enjoyed the characters. I would love to read more from her in the future.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author (under either name) and I was expecting a cliche “flimsy” sports romance. It exceeded my expectations to such a level that I will gifting a copy to a dear friend of mine (book nerds unite!).
I enjoyed everything about this book. It was well thought out, never rushed to get to a scene. It has a strong beginning, middle and end and I appreciated the epilogue.
The characters were dimensional and human. The book was written in such a way that sometimes I was expecting a right turn and it took a left. It held my interest from beginning to end.
This book was NOT a Hail Mary pass. It was a well practiced “play” (football analogy that I hope I used correctly).
I absolutely recommend this book.

Touchdown is the first book in the Big Apple Series by Alexa Summers and holy cow it didnt take long for the first score.
Lexi Driver has the my dream job. A sports reporter with locker room access. She is a highly respected reporter with access to all of the players and all of it has been earned. Well it was until that fateful day.
Brett Brock is the backup quarterback who tends to stay in the background in the locker room. But he gets thrust into the limelight in one of the most embarrassing ways.
Their story is funny, hot, painful and entertaining. I loved every minute I spent reading this book and look forward the rest of this series.
Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance: The Big Apple Series Book One by Alexa Summers. This was what I would consider, the perfect sports/romance book. Hot and steamy all wrapped into a great read.
Lexi knew from her early years what she wanted to do…. she wanted to be a sports reporter and get the first interviews of athletes. Which meant seeing them in all of their glory, hot, sweaty, fresh off the field and close to naked. When during one of her interviews, she and the entire country, see Brett Brocks impressive package. When he demands an apology, Lexi knows that is not going to happen because she doesn’t think she did anything wrong.
This book had me constantly wanting more. I can not wait to read more from this author and this series.
Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance, by Alexa Summers, is the first book in the Big Apple Series. This sports romance was instantly fun to read. I thought the feisty personality and go-getter attitude from Lexi was right on point and enjoyed the back and forth banter that occurred between her and Brett. Lexi may like the male physique more that a normal woman may admit, but she takes charge and knows her stuff despite her filter not working properly at all times. This story made me laugh, and I enjoyed the growth in the characters as the story progresses. There is definitely some animosity between some co-workers, but it adds to the charm of the story, giving some additional dynamic and drama. The way the author finishes the story was perfect and an ending that was in tune with the characters.
