What a way to start a series! I’m generally a sucker for any books involving hot athletes but Alexa Summers did an awesome job with Touchdown, which is the first book in The Big Apple Series. Lexi is one of the top sports reporters in New York. Brett is an NFL quarterback that is about to hit it big and be able to show what he’s got when the leading quarterback gets injured. A little scandal takes place in the locker room after one of the games and Lexi isn’t apologizing for it! Brett initially wants to get back at her but ends up creating a “deal” with her. Things definitely get hot and heavy when they both realize they want each other more than their deal. The author wrote this book well. I felt like I was a part of the story line. There is tons of wit so you will be laughing quite often. There is also tons of intrigue and twists and turns. Of course there is always the psycho chick that needs to be taken down! The sexy scenes were scorching hot! I thoroughly enjoyed those, I’m not going to lie! It was also very nice to see that there are jocks who are actually intelligent and cultured. This book was such a page turner that I couldn’t put it down! I cannot wait to read the next book in the series! I hope it was just as good as this one!

Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance by Alexa Summers and AJ Phoenix is the first book in her Big Apple Series and what a way to start a series. From the very beginning this book got under my skin and I couldn’t read it fast enough. Following the story of Lexi Driver and Brett Brock, the chemistry between these two was palpable from their first meeting. Lexi Driver follows her name with her driven attitude and passion to be the best in her field really made her a fantastic character to get to know. Brett Brock is a first-time quarterback and is finally getting his chance to shine on the big stage. Meeting for the first time during a slipped towel incident in the locker room, to say it was a rocky start is putting it lightly. Will these two be able to work together, create magic together; or will their rocky start make them quit before they even begin? Or will the heat between these two bind them together into something so great that they won’t know what to do without each other. Having read several of Summers books, as well as her alter ego Phoenix, in the past; I knew picking this book up I was going to love this. The heat, banter, and burgeoning friendship made this a fantastic read. If you are looking for a read that will not only knock your socks off but warm your heart than this is the story for you. I can’t wait to see where this series goes, but I know that I can’t wait to read each new book.

Touchdown is the first novel in the Big Apple series by Alexa Summers. This is my first novel by this author.

Lexi Driver is a sportscaster who is very well liked by her fan based and has climbed the ladder in an occupation predominantly held by men.

While interviewing a player, she catches Brett Brock in a midst of a wardrobe malfunction which goes viral.

With the incident hurting both of their careers, some reactions are positive.

After the news dies down, Brett wants an apology but Lexi doesn’t she how she is at fault when it was the cameraman that looked in that direction. To retaliate, Brett makes plans to humiliate her.

I really enjoyed the sports romance which is genre of romance I don’t read much and each time I do, I always wonder why I don’t read it more often.

Lexi was very well written and relatable character who has made a name for herself in a field that women don’t get into often.

Lexi and Brett relationship started with humiliation and dislike but ended with a great romance and I love stories like that. Where I can read the progression of the relationship and what makes the characters start to warm up to each other.

There was vast amount of characters and I hope we see them again with their own novel.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Touchdown was a hot 5 star read and book one in The Big Apple series.

Lexi is a sports reporter who gets to see it all when she goes into the locker rooms after games, and I mean all. She is one of the best interviewers in the business. While in the locker room there is a towel malfunction and live TV gets a full view of Brett the hot quarterback.

Wanting an apology from Lexi thinking that she planned the whole incident, Brett doesn’t get it so he has another plan. In the meantime he and Lexi have some very hot and steamy moments and spend more time together. Things start to take a turn for Brett and he is developing feelings for Lexi.

There is a huge twist that changes everything very quickly. Will these two be able to get past it?

This was a great story that has hot scenes, jealous exes and co-workers and so much more. I loved all of the secondary characters with the exception of Izzy and Jade. They were on my hate list. I had several LOL moments, especially when Lexi was in the locker rooms, loved her thoughts. This is my first read from this author and I loved it, I was pulled right in from the beginning and couldn’t stop until I was done. I look forward to reading more from this series.

Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance: The Big Apple Series Book 1
By Alexa Summers
4 Stars

I love to read all types of romance books. Paranormal, Erotica, Contemporary but I will admit that I have not fully dipped into the sports drama genre yet. So, I didn’t know what to expect from this story. But I will happily say that I was surprised and happy to have picked up this gem. Alexa Summers delivers a solid TOUCHDOWN (get the play on words, lol) with this book.

Lexi Driver loves being a sportscaster. I mean to hear Lexi tell it who wouldn’t? You get to be in the locker room with hot guys in all their glory. But being on top isn’t easy. Sportscasters have generally been men and making sure she stays on top Lexi does whatever it takes. Even if that means using a clip of backup quarterback Brett Brock accidental towel drop. Now Brett is asking for an apology. Too bad Lexi doesn’t feel like giving one!

Brett Brock can’t believe what happened! What slip and now the whole world has seen him in all his glory. Mistakes happen and the only thing that Brett wants is an apology from the stubborn reporter. But she doesn’t feel she should apologize. Can Brett show her the error of her ways? Or will Lexi’s stubbornness and drive sink both their careers?

Touchdown checked off a lot of boxes for this romance reader. I enjoyed the chemistry and romance buildup between the main characters. I enjoyed the quirkiness and sometimes comic relief provided by the secondary characters. Although the book seemed a little predictive, Ms. Summers was able to add enough meat in the book to keep it interesting and enjoyable. Highly entertaining interspersed with moments of drama, suspense and of course the steamy scenes make this a good read. I will be on the lookout for the next book in this series.

Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance (The Big Apple Series #1) by Alexa Summers – Review by Chantelle Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Touchdown: A Steamy Football Romance is Book 1 in The Big Apple Series From author Alexa Summers.
This is my first read from this author and I can’t wait to see what else she brings to this series and what other reads she has. Alexa Summers has created a read that is entertaining, funny, sexy, steamy & just an amazing read from the get-go.

Lexi has a job all women probably wished they had, interviewing sports stars from the Locker rooms, which means catching some of the stars just off the pitch! But what she never expects in one of her usual interviews is for a wardrobe malfunction to happen to backup quarterback Brett Brock live on T.V which then causes her and Brett into the limelight.
To read Lexi and Brett’s journey through this book was so enjoyable, there was quite a few things about this read that had me laughing out loud, but there was also times that this book made me frustrated just by the actions from Brett. But none of the less, I really do think Brett & Lexi have a great relationship they had banter with each other but I don’t think they were actually aware of how great they could be with each other even with their love/hate relationship but the build up of it caused a steamy release for the both of them!

This was a brilliant read from start to finish and one that shouldn’t be missed! I can’t wait to see what else is to come to this series, until then this one shouldn’t be missed!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was such a pleasant surprise since it’s nothing like the cliche romance novels we normally see on the market. This is the first time I’ve read anything from this author and I have to say I’m hooked.

The characters really did it for me with this story. They had so much depth to them. We meet Lexi who is a sports writer and unfortunately or fortunately catches Brett in kind of an uncomfortable situation. The attraction blew off the page with the witty banter that ensued. As their story continued I fell more and more in love with them and Miss Summer’s writing.

This book gave me all the feels along the way. It was fast pace, witty, and heartfelt all at the same time. I’m so excited to see what more is in store for this author and this series.

Touchdown is book one in the Big Apple series by Alexa Summers. My first time read from this author and it was a good one.

Lexi is a sports reporter, a job i absolutely envy, and she owns that. She catches Brett in an embarrassing situation and he wants a sorry. The back and forth banter was excellent, the sexual chemistry was explosive, their strong and battle ready personalities clashed spectacularly. It made for extremely entertaining reading. The whole storyline was fast paced, exciting and always full of drama and underhanding activities. Of the thrilling kind. Their coming together was steamy and raised the heart rate for sure.

I really liked Touchdown and am eager for more of this enticing series. 4 stars.

Great sorry! I enjoyed the characters and the plot. I’m not into sports but there wasn’t anything over the top about sports, so I understood it all. There were funny times and also steamy times. I couldn’t get over the twist, it was just so perfect! Lexi was my favorite, she was super funny and a great strong women.
