I must preface my review by saying that I have enjoyed all of Ms. Solheim's books and will continue to read them. But this story quite frankly has left me feeling...should I say sacked? I was anxiously awaiting for this novella mainly because of the story line. An intelligent woman who was done wrong by a boyfriend and life brings them back together ten years later. Here is a chance for some delicious payback, some deserved groveling, some heat in the bedroom, and some wrongs made right. Fun right? Not really. Groveling? Hardly. Drama? Barely. Strong woman? Only if you think shivering, trembling, can barely carry on a coherent conversation at breakfast constitutes a woman of substance, then ok , she is your gal. I have enjoyed and connected with all the other heroines in this author's books until this one. I just find her reactions and her thought process off. There is only one scene where she truly demonstrated any kind of backbone and even then that was after she had sex with him. I really do not understand this penchant of writers' of this genre to make the h seem as weak and mindless as possible with no control whatsoever reducing the h to a tearful idiot. It does not convey strength nor depth but rather lack of insight and definitely no character. We all understand there are certain elements that are necessary to create to romance and heat in a story but constant tears would make most men run for the hills. Not the bedroom. Making other characters look at them as if they have lost their minds in my opinion does not help much either. This h preoccupation with his concussion also seemed excessive since it happened a while back and obviously the man was working and going about his life normally. My other concern was her reaction towards him when she sees him again and he touches her.Read more ›

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy, and I knew after reading the entire "Out of Bounds" series so far that I was going to get right into "A Numbers Game." Merrit and Heath have a palpable chemistry that leaps off the pages from the very start. Like all of Tracy Solheim's books, this is fast-paced and juicy, and the characters make indelible marks in your brain, making you want to read more! My first time reading a novella was pure enjoyment, but it leaves me waiting for the next full novel. Can't wait to meet the next cast of characters!

My Review:
Aww, I really liked the backstory on this one. Merrit and Heath dated while they were in college. He was her first lover and she thought they meant everything to one another, but that all ended when she found out about a humiliating bet among the jocks. She was shattered by the revelation and took off never giving Heath a chance to explain.

For Heath, she was the one who got away. For Merrit, he was a humiliating awful memory that she wishes she could forget. So when they run across one another 10 years later, there is a lot to get past and work through. Heath has a marriage and divorce under his belt. Merrit is fresh off another humiliating experience...the betrayal by her fiance. Heath sees this as a second chance, but Merrit sees this as a way to prove to herself that she's not the cold fish that her fiance said she was. She could never trust him again.

The emotion to this story felt very real. My heart hurt for Heath because it sounds like he did everything he could to fix the original hurt, but she had left the country and her family was over-protective. On the other hand, I also could completely understand Merrit's complete humiliation. It was one thing when it was just a vague bet, but when the details of what all was on the list came out, I could most definitely see her point. It's a no-win for both of them...until they talk. And that's all I'm gonna say because it's a story worth reading and exploring yourself.

I did really, really enjoy it. I read it out of place in the series order, but that didn't affect my enjoyment of it one bit. It's certainly part of the Out of Bounds series, but it absolutely works completely and totally as a stand alone. In fact, if you've never read Tracy Solheim, this would be a good "feeler" novel to see if you like her style (hint: I think you will.) AND...I still need to know who the blogger is and wonder if we'll ever find out.

While I love to have the meat of a full novel, every once in a while a shorter novella will hit the spot, and this one certainly did. Even in a short piece of work, Tracy Solheim has created full and interesting characters with strengths and flaws that are believable. I particularly love the blue crab scene, where she has included unexpected detail on how to crack a crab. Most authors would gloss over that in a short story, but Tracy uses it to further build her character profiles.

If you find that you don't have time for a full novel, pick this one up for a quick read. It's quite excellent, and ties in well to the other novels in her trilogy (plus one).

Love Health and Merrit's story--We meet more of the staff at the Blaze camp plus the Callahan
family--can see lots of interesting stories to come from Tracy.
Thanks for this good read and the set up for things to come.
