Connor was a pilot in the Services as well however he had to retire when his brother passed away so that he could look after his niece and rescue the family business.
They have known each other since they were kinds and have fought their attraction to each other by ensuring that everything between is a competition. When they meet to celebrate the retirement of a commanding officer they decide to take advantage of this opportunity to act on their attraction. When a misunderstanding occurs and Avery believes she was betrayed by Connor she is left with no options but to work for his company. Will they be able to sort out the misunderstanding and realize that they are meant to be together?
Avery is strong and determined and Connor is so supportive of her and only wants what is best for her even if that means that they are not together. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Now, both of them are struggling to make a success of their civilian jobs in the competitive aviation business. Each of them has family issues that threaten to devastate. Moreover, Avery fears Connor has dealt underhandedly with her—that he stepped out of bounds in order to win a contract she desperately needed to keep her job.
The foreshadowing is a steady undercurrent that flows along with the current happenings of the story. Some of it is foreboding enough to create anxiety and to bring about a thorough dislike for Avery’s ex-husband who has to be one of the most self-centered people around. The author does a super good job of showing the reader who he is, even though we don’t ever really meet him.
The back story is sifted in at just the right times to augment and add special significance to the Avery and Connor’s relationship, to family “almost” wrecks, and to tried-and-true friendships. Also a subtle humor lightens the situations from time to time.
Out of Bounds is a page-turning story that is well-written with characters that seem SO real.

Two of the most competitive Navy pilots Avery (Mad) Madigan and Connor (Titan) St. James are ready to take you to one steamy and emotional ride it will make you love them.
Avery and Connor have a long history and when fate reunite them at a critical moment of each other's lives. As you read this story you will find it emotional in a sense you feel for this two and want to help them. Making you forget they are fictional characters.
I recommend for you to read this amazing story.
Avery married and divorced with a son. She has retired from active duty but is still on Reserves. She works for an aviation company. She is confident, smart, and independent.
Connor had to retire from service to go home and take care of his niece and save the family business from ruin. He has sunk everything he has into paying off his brother’s debts and turning the business back into a success. He’s had a thing for Avery since they were kids.
When Avery loses a bid, her butthead boss, looking for any excuse, fires her. She finds out the same day that her ex is filing for full custody of their son and Connor won the bid she lost. She thinks he used her to get the contract and is furious and a bit heart broken. Connor offers her a job in his company. Between a rock and a hard place, she accepts.
Watching these two dance around each other was interesting and frustrating. Connor was so supportive of Avery, encouraging and praising her success. Yet, every time they got close to getting together again, he would jump back.
I liked the supporting characters and look forward to the next book in the series.
