Daily Book Quote: Risky Game: An Out of Bounds Novel

“Oh, for the love of Christ, Shannon! What are you wearing?”
She looked down at her gray T-shirt, Redskins emblazoned across her chest. Lifting her chin again she arched an eyebrow at him.
“Seriously? That’s what you’re gonna lead with, Brody?”

Though this is book 3 in the ‘Out of Bounds’ series, it is my first read in the series. I don’t read a lot of football romances, but I had fun with this one. Previous books in the series were referenced, but I had no problem reading this one as a standalone. Nevertheless, the characters are simply wonderful, begging me to play catch up and read their stories. This is Brody and Shay’s story. He is a bit of a spoiled entitled football star and Shay has had to work for every little thing in her life. When she happens on to a secret about his health, he blackmails her into helping him keep it a secret. He doesn’t trust her but finds himself grudgingly admiring her. Of course, she fits perfectly into his life and while that would be nice for her, she has obligations.

At first, I really didn’t like either of them; he was a manchild and she was seriously uptight. Their progression warmed me to them and it wasn’t long before I was rooting for them to succeed. The evil blogger is such a great plot device. I eagerly soaked up her vile gossip, while simultaneously wanting to sit on her and pull her hair until she cries (if it is even a she). I will admit I did eventually hit on the identity of the mole, but the several red-herrings throughout led me astray each time. So frustrating and fun. Great Story. Yeah, I will be reading the rest of the series.
