Julie Brannagh’s INTERCEPTING DAISY is an entertaining addition to the Love and Football Series. Shark’s flight attendant, Daisy Spencer, writes an erotic novella staring her favorite backup quarterback, Grant Parker, under a pen name. She doesn’t expect the book to end up on the best-seller list. Furthermore, she doesn’t expect Grant to ask her out and the subsequent guilt she feels from not telling him she authored the blockbuster he stars in. This contemporary sports romance primarily takes place in Seattle. It is suitable for adult audiences.
I enjoyed Grant’s character. He is the son of nationally known pastors. The Shark’s PR team portrays him as a sweet and saintly boy next door when dating, when, in reality, he is a one-night-stand kind of guy. That being said he is always upfront with the women he is with. I felt bad for him; he doesn’t have the best relationship with his parents. Plus, he doesn’t do anything wrong other than not actually play the part of the image the Shark’s PR team created for him. Quite honestly, I didn’t really think it was fair for the PR team to do that, but considering the circumstances that lead to it; it is understandable. Grant is a likeable character.
Daisy gets herself in a bind. She is a really nice person; that is a fun and hardworking flight attendant. She writes her fantasy and decides to publish it on Amazon. If she realized the ramifications, I doubt she would have done it. This story shows that even the nicest people make mistakes.
Reporter, Harley McHugh, caused some interesting controversy in the story. This also backs up my previous statement about nice people making mistakes (cough…Grant).
I love that the characters from the previous books are in this story. The Sharks are like a family and have a great bond.
INTERCEPTING DAISY was well-written and believable. The characters are likeable and credible. Julie Brannagh continues to do a great job with the Love and Football Series.
