I absolutely loved Out of Bounds and its characters. Drew was the football player we all fantasize about. Sure he was gorgeous and buff, but he was also smart and sweet. He didn't let his cockiness get the best of him. Dani was everything I love in a great female main character. She wasn't just a pretty face. She was smart, tough and knew as much about football as Drew.
Out of Bounds had a lightness to it that I loved. Dani and Drew's romance had a little bit of the forbidden romance thing going on, but it wasn't filled with a bunch of drama or angst. Their chemistry was amazing and apparent each time they were together. Dani and Drew's romance was cute and so much fun to read.
The only thing I could complain about with this book is that it was too short! 150 pages wasn't long enough. I flew through this book and was surprised when I got to the end. I wanted more Dani and Drew! I loved them so much!
Out of Bounds was a romance novel that would be perfect for the beach, a plane ride or just an escape from every day life.
When you combine one of your favorite authors with one of your favorite genres, you're practically guaranteed to get a fantastic read. So to say I was thrilled that Lauren Blakely was releasing a sports romance is quite the understatement!
Blakely delivers a deliciously sexy sports novella featuring footballer, Drew and lawyer, Dani. They meet on the beach when Dani checks to see if Drew is hurt after being clobbered by a rogue surfboard and while Dani quickly realizes who Drew is, she's happy to pretend not to know he's the rising star quarterback for a local professional team. And who is Dani, I hear you ask. Why, she's a lawyer for the *other* local team - where Drew gets transferred to.
So this book has a bit of a forbidden feel to it: team lawyer and quarterback plus the slightly older woman and it totally rocked my world. The interactions between these two are fun and flirty and the sexy times are in-freaken-sane! Delicious! Hot!
What I love most is that Blakely (as always) gives us good, solid characters. Further to that, she never gives a weak heroine; they're always strong within their own right, smart, and are far from needy. Dani is a perfect example of that and I want to be her friend, desperately! And another thing? These women are ADORED by their men and Drew is no exception to this. I love how he views Dani as a badass because she really is one with a huge heart! As much as I love and lust for The Blakely Boys, the girls have their own special place for me.
I really loved this novella and I really hope that Blakely continues with writing sports romances - she's proven to be damn good at it!

The story follows a recently traded starting quarterback and a lawyer working for the same franchise. Though they attempt to resist their attraction towards one another, they cannot. What happens when they can't? A whole lot of sexy goodness!
The chemistry between these two from the very beginning is well-established from not only a physical level but an intellectual level a well. The banter and jokes between the two set up that this is more than just getting some action. There is general interest and flirting, and really all the things that woman love on a first date. Their chemistry quickly escalates to the physical level, and, as we all know, Lauren Blakely knows how to write a intimate scene that is scorching. Watching these two fall in love will only make the reader fall in love with them, as they are both amazing characters with zero unlikable traits.
The plot of the story progresses quickly, as it is a novella, but Lauren Blakely still gives the characters enough depth that readers care about them. They root for them to get together, and readers want to see them happy. The plot also allows for the development of the relationship to seem authentic. Throughout the story, the reader gets more than just physical interaction. The author allows the reader to see them interact on the work and personal spheres they live in, which only bolsters the believability of their relationship.
Lauren Blakely does it again with her newest novella, Out of Bounds. The characters, the story, and the romance will win you over and have you cheering for Drew and Dani to finally win the game of love!

Dani Paige is a corporate lawyer for the footabll team “Los Angeles Knights“ and Drew Erickson is the new quaterback joining said football team. Dani and Drew meet on a beach where Dani doesn’t tell Drew that she recognizes him as a football player. They spend an evening together, exchanging flirty banter and hot looks but the evening ends with Drew leaving when an urgent calls comes through. They meet again during a fundraiser party and sparks fly.
Their relationship was cute and sweet. As usual with Lauren Blakley, the couple had good chemistry, banter and some sweet moments’. They were both interesting characters. It was also nice having a quarterback that didn’t have a revolving door in his bedroom. Dani and Drew both want to be together but their work makes their relationship forbidden and while it’s getting increasing difficult for both of them to resist their attraction and feelings; the question is, is it worth risking their careers for?
Quibbles: I didn’t quite understand why the relationship was forbidden because they are not actually both in the “team”, she’s wasn’t his manager etc either so??? Also Drew’s behaviour at the climax of the story was baffling, it was like his character did a 180 degree turn. « Hide Spoiler
Overall, I enjoyed it but I felt like something was missing from making it a great a read.
Lauren writes so that you develop a connection to the characters and quickly, so I was invested straight away with Dani & Drew. That is what you need in a novella and this is what you get, sizzle, heat and a fun read which left me wanting more from any of the characters that I met along the way......
Was very short....Was just getting into it and then noticed I was already at fifty percent.
