Overview

Stefanie Pointer, a UCLA senior on her way to a top ten law school, likes herself just the way she is-a smart, ambitious, but simple girl who is comfortable in a tank top, a pair of jeans and flip-flops. When she foregoes her lifelong professional goals and puts the career of her college sweetheart, star football player, Ricky Powers, before hers, her life turns upside down. She must face the blatant disapproval of her parents and the unremitting voice inside her head constantly asking if she's doing the right thing. As she finds her way through the complicated life of a soon-to-be NFL wife, Stefanie finds herself trading in her flip-flops for a pair of Jimmy Choos, reckoning with the fierce competition of ruthless groupies and losing sight of her dreams. What else is she willing to sacrifice in her search for true love?

Loved this book. Enjoyed the TV SHOW that the book was based on....but loved the book better. Whatever happened to the author?  I thought she was coming out with a sequel.

I was disappointed with the book. The characters became boring before the the middle of the book, which made reading it very tedious. It could have been a good book if the characters were more developed and the plot was more engaging.

Read this book last week and now the McNair thing has me thinking I will never date an ATHLETE. I had to write a review because I not only loved this book, but I just feel like there's so much stuff in the professsional sports world that goes on that is not exposed. This book goes into detail of one girls plight of trying to hold on to her man (during the transition from COLLEGE to the NFL). Though very interesting to get a look inside, I now know that athletes are a scary breed.

I think the author tried to pack too much story into one book. I don't like how the book jumped from one month to several months later, several different times. It seemed like Ricky turned into a totally different guy and no background was given as to when and why. Maybe because that is how he always was but since the book was being told from Stefanie's view, we mostly saw Ricky as how she viewed him instead of who he really was. The ending could have been better (as in the last 2 or so pages). It seemed as if the author put very little effort, thought and creativity into how the book should have ended.

I wasn¿t sure what genre Interceptions fell into when I picked it up and began reading. I soon learned that it wasn¿t another romance or dating-drama, but a story of self-discovery. I quickly identified with the lead character Stefanie Pointer and anxiously held my breath as she put her own professional dreams aside and followed her heart. By the time I turned the last page, I could only smile. I felt Stephanie¿s heartache, but I rejoiced over her freedom and growth. This is a book for readers ages 16 to 60. You will learn something, you will feel something and above all, you will be entertained! I sure hope there¿s a sequel!

This book is a great read! Although it describes what it's like to be in a very high profile relationship...I think everyone who has sacrificed for love will definitely appreciate and enjoy it! Ms. Robinson is a very talented and thoughtful author.

Staci Robinson's novel is excellent. From the first page, I was hooked and could not put the book down until I was finished. The characters are well developed and the story is engaging. I definitely recommend this novel. Thoroughly enjoyable!!

Interceptions is a compelling story about what happens when you let your emotions and feelings for another person take over your life, and allow those feelings to push you into making decisions about your own path that are unhealthy in the long run. I felt Stefanie Pointer's anguish as she gave herself unconditionally to this man, and battled with herself as she little by little forsook her own dreams so she could hold on to the 'love of her life.' Anyone thinking of putting their life and goals on hold for a mate, whether male or female, should read this book, then think again.

I read about this book in the newspaper after it was the source of a major Hollywood lawsuit. Decided to pick it up even though I've never seen the TV show. Couldn't put it down. The book explored the lives of NFL athletes on their way from college to the NFL stopping at the post college bowl games, the NFL combine, and the actual NFL draft day. What it's like to be in the shadow of one of these high profile players and maintain your own professional dreams and goals is what Stefanie Pointer, the protagonist is faced with. An entertaining read!

Staci Robinson's book 'Interceptions' was eye catching. Me being a football lover wanted to read it based on the title alone. As I started reading the book, it really caught my attention. It's a novel about love and football. She takes you through the ups and downs of being a football player AND being the ball player's woman. She let's you feel the emotions of both of the characters in the story. It's a must add to your collection!!! Thanks Staci!!!
