Overview

In the next sizzling sports romance from the author of Foolish Games, Brody is at the top of his game… until Shannon changes the rules.

Baltimore Blaze tight end Brody Janik is a natural-born football star. At twenty-seven, his record-breaking athletic performance and his cover-boy good looks have turned him into a household name. But Brody’s hiding a major secret behind his charming public persona: a health condition that may cut his career short.
 
PhD candidate Shannon “Shay” Everett works multiple jobs to put herself through school—including an unpaid internship with the Blaze training department.  Strapped for cash, Shay answers the call of an NFL gossip blogger to uncover personal details about the Blaze players. Sneaking into the locker room one night, she gets entangled in Brody’s secret…and swept up by his charm.
 
Brody isn’t sure what to make of the gawky girl with the whiskey eyes, especially when he discovers she was snooping. His first instinct is to turn her in as a snitch, but she could destroy him by sharing his secret. Instead, he decides to keep her close…perhaps closer than either of them originally intended…

Solheim’s third Out of Bounds sports contemporary (after Foolish Games) continues the series’ exploration of the tormented inner lives of Baltimore Blaze football players. Charming, gorgeous, talented tight end Brody Janik is paranoid about his health condition getting out during contract negotiations, especially since an anonymous blogger is hunting for football gossip. While spying in the Blaze locker room on the blogger’s behalf, Shay Everett, the team’s spunky intern, learns Brody’s secret, but she decides it’s ethically wrong to share the information. Brody finds the whiskey-eyed Shay a conundrum: fascinating and attractive, but dangerous. Shay signs a contract agreeing to keep Brody’s health concerns private, but the blogger keeps blogging. As Brody struggles to trust Shay, she tries to uncover the blogger’s identity, and everyone else wonders what’s really going on between them. The hero and heroine play well off one another as sexual sparks snap and fizzle. Their numerous disagreements get old fast, saved by the intervention of savory secondary characters. Readers who enjoy introspection and intelligent handling of trust and family obligations over courtship will relish this emotion-driven story. (May)
