Review: Out of Bounds by Lauren Blakely


Note: This ARC was provided by Bloomsbury Spark via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

There was something familiar about the good-looking, well-built guy that Dani Paige rescued after he got smacked in the head with a wayward surfboard. When it turns out that "Andrew" is actually Drew Erickson, quarterback for the Anaheim Devil Sharks, Dani doesn't want to let him know she's recognized him, especially since she happens to be lawyer for the other football team in the area, the Los Angeles Knights. He seems to like the notion of her not knowing who he is or what he does. One promising day together should have led to more, but Drew never called, leaving Dani somewhat miffed. When Drew is traded to the Knights, and their paths cross, the initial attraction between them quickly develops into more than either one was prepared for. But is either one of them willing to risk their respective careers for a relationship that may be intense but in its early stages or are they out of bounds?

Out of Bounds is a standalone story from one of my favorite authors, Lauren Blakely, and it's a sports romance set in California and the rough and tumble world of professional American football. This was a fairly quick read, and one that I quite enjoyed, thanks to it's fast-paced, lighthearted story and two main characters who were easy to like and weren't saddled with unnecessary angst and drama. Drew and Dani were both cute and hot, although there were two times I kinda wanted to smack Drew upside the head (i.e. the phone number fiasco--because he was only missing the last digit and he could've gone through the ten possibilities instead of leaving a note though the gesture was sweet--and his lack of logic during a turning point in the story). Overall, I couldn't get enough of the Surfing Quarterback and the Surf Angel. If you want a light and easy read, Out of Bounds could be it. 4.5 stars! ♥
