I did not like this book. I almost DNF'd a few times. This is about Reid and Ever- they were best friends growing up but Ever was 4 years younger than Reid. She was in love with him and he was in love with her and planning to claim her when she turned 18. They did not know they loved each other. How does Reid show his love? By chasing away all the boys that show her any interest while he whores around casually. One of his f*ck buddies gets pregnant on purpose. How you ask? We never find out- may ...more

If you are a big fan of friends to lovers story like myself then this book is for you. Intercepted by Emma Hart is the third book in the By His Game series. I honestly couldn't wait to read Reid North's story and Ms. Hart did not disappoint her readers with this book. If you want romance, playfulness, heart, vulnerability and pure raw emotions then Intercepted is the book for you.

This book is soooo silly. It's fiction, I'm aware of it, but c'mon, don't underestimate my intelligence. This h has stupid written in her forehead when she was 18 and 4 years later the word is still there. I'm not even annoyed I read it. I'm glad actually. I think the kidnapping, and car crashing landing one of the MCs in the hospital being in a induced coma for over 10 days is very overused. And I knew the ex boyfriend wasn't the stalker. That was too predictable. A lot. Like I said, don't unde ...more

Intercepted follows the story of Ever and Reid. Ever and Reid have been best friends for as long as they can remember. Over time, their feelings for one another progressed, but neither one of them acted on their feelings because of their age difference. One of Ever’s biggest regrets was leaving town without saying goodbye to Reid. Now, four years later, Ever is coming home.

Reid’s life hasn’t gone as planned. He should be out living the high life, enjoying being famous and young, but life had oth

The most emotional book of the series!

Love can be always without being ever."

I freaking love Intercepted! It tugged my heart with all the sadness and the brokenness between Reid and Ever. Reid's bitterness and words of a broken heart made me really sad.

I was really surprised with the way Emma Hart wrote this. From the alphaness and loudness of the first two books respectively, she brought another plate to the
This book actually took me by surprise. I didn't think I would like it this much. I thought it was gonna be an easy fluffy read, but it was much more than that. I have to say I enjoyed reading every single page.

I liked all the characters and the hero and heroine were awesome! Not to mention Leo...that kid was so freaking funny..I absolutely loved him. This is the first book I've read and I think I will go back and read some more from this series and others. It was funny, sexy, sweet and angsty

4.5 Stars!

Definitely the best one out of the series! Ev was by far the best heroine out of the group. She wasn't overly dramatic like the other two in the previous books. I could relate to her, and I really enjoyed her character. Also love love loved Reid!! He was an awesome dad to Leo <3 and a really great hero.

The only thing I wasn't a fan of was how direct he was towards her the very first time they saw each other after 4 years ... like WOW. She could've been a completely different person and

Everleigh White and Reid North. Best friends for twenty years. Apart for four. In love with each other but neither aware of how the other feels....

I am a huge fan of this series and these sexy football players and Reid's story did not disappoint! Actually, I think it was the best in the series!

I was immediately hooked when I read the epilogue and was unable to put this book down. We meet Everleigh (aka Ever) and Reid as teenagers trying to make the best out of the even their mothers dragged them to. Years later Everleigh is back in L.A. and hoping to not run into Reid, but low and behold he's right there at the gym she's working at.

“Love can be right without being right now. Love can be always without being ever.”

Since they were kids, it’s always been Everleigh White and Reid North. Their bond formed and solidified as they grew up together, and the more time they spent together, the more their feelings changed from friendship to love, but neither ever had the guts to put themselves out there to one another, and when everything got to be too much for Ever, feeling like her unrequited feelings were going to destroy her from

I love friends to lovers stories and Reid and Everleigh's story has been a long time in the making. Their reunion was satisfying and sometimes difficult to read about. It seemed like they had all these challenges to face all at once and it was a little overwhelming for them and me.

I liked Reid and I liked Ever. I loved Reid for how much he loved Leo his son. I understood his desire to protect his him from his biological mother and further heart break. I also understood how so many years later he

Intercepted is the third book in the By His Game series and for me it was definitely the most heartfelt and emotional. You can totally read this book as a standalone but I wouldn’t. The first two books are awesome and you get a taste of Reid in them. The first two books were more funny and revolved around play boy type guys but Reid was a completely different ball game. Parts of this story absolutely broke my heart.

You know those books youre unsure about but then turn way better tha n you expect? This is one of them. While Ive always liked Reid for in the previous books this one just seals the deal. He may be a cocky pain in the ass but just looking at how he loves his kid.

Ever and Reid together are two people with so much history between them the push each others buttons like mad. But oh the banter I love their banter and the way they get each other. Its the kind of second chance romance but also they

Football themed romance with great characters and a little boy who added so much additional fun to this one. There was a bit of suspense attached here that gave this one a little bit of a boost and helped keep the momentum going and added another level of depth to the story as well. And I was surprised with the outcome, too.

I'm on a sports-themed kick this week and they've all been fun but still nothing absolutely mindboggling terrific. I liked this one by Emma Hart, the best so far an

Best friends & lovers?

YES AND YES. Reid and Ever are both in Emma Hart’s newest panty dropping novel about two lifelong friends who fell in love at a young age when they couldn’t be together and who are reunited again when maybe they shouldn’t be together.

Reid has a seven year old son, Leo, who clearly wasn’t planned, but Reid refuses to call him a mistake. That boy is his whole life. I’m pretty sure the maternal gene skipped a generation with me, but fuck it, even my ovaries started to ache whi

Reid North might be the guy I’ve loved for years and probably will still love ten years from now, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be anything. Love can be right without being right now. Love can be always without being ever.

I absolutely devoured, inhaled and lived this book. Emma has the innate ability to make me sit still and just read. In one sitting. This doesn't happen often for me.

Intercepted by Emma Hart is the third book in her By His Game series. As we move through the group of L.A. Viper's football players we get to Reid's story. It almost seemed like if anything could happen it would happen to Reid.

Reid North has been best friends with Everleigh White for almost 20 years. There was an age gap of a couple of years but he was waiting for her eighteenth birthday... and then she took off for college without saying goodbye.

It;s been four years and she is back. As a singl

Reid North is bossy with a capital B, "I’ve gotta be at training at one thirty. Meet me outside. Don’t be late.” Then he pushes off the counter and walks through the door with a towel around his neck. All sweaty, bulging biceps and tight a**." Reid makes the most delicious promises, "Everleigh, baby,” Reid whispers against my lips, “I’ll eff you so goddamned thoroughly you’ll never need anyone but me inside you." I just loved Reid, "the question was rhetorical, baby.” His body presses against me

Awesome read

I absolutely love, love, loved this book!!

This is the third and , I believe, final book in this series. I admit I'm a little saddened by this! I loved these three books but think this is the best one!!

This is the story of Reid and Everleigh. They grew up together and secretly had crushes on each but never told. They actually loved each other but ever is 4 years younger than Reid so he waited to tell her. There are many twists and turns in this book that kept me hooked from page one

Intercepted chronicles the story of Reid North and Everleigh White, childhood friends. I can honestly say that Intercepted is by far my favorite of the series, Emma Hart deliver a beautiful story, about friends turn lovers, and how they finally have their shot at love. is a very rich story with many elements that tugged your heart as you follow their journey.

Reid and Ever are two amazing characters, I love that Reid wasn't too over possessive alpha, and that Everleigh wasn't some weak heroine or
Not entirely sure how to rate this book.

One technical problem, after the half way mark, the Kindle edition started needing better editing with a fair number of typos and some missing or duplicate text.

But the story also suffers from plot problems. Reid's failure to wait for Ever is never discussed. And condom usage disappears almost instantly with no discussion... Especially odd since Reid already has one unexpected child. And not one, but two OTT exes.

Not a shining jewel of perfection. Althou

Other reviews mentioned the issue with the stalker. I chose to ignore that, and I shouldn't have. It's just not very developed. She ignores it for so long. She was so freaked out but did nothing about it. The stalker becomes a major storyline so I just expected more.
