“OUT OF THE GAME was just a fun book to read!  I think after the Play by Play series by Jaci Burton, this is going to be my go to for sweet and sexy sport romance.”
~ Under the Covers

This was one of my fun discoveries late this year.  I love sports romance, especially hockey, and Ms. Willoughby manages to write deliciously sexy stories that include plenty of the game and life around the sport and give us a book full of heart as well.

I’ve been waiting for this book since book 1 when we sort of assumed there was a hook up between Alex and Erin’s sister, Claire.  A sister who was at the time married, and then we found out going through a divorce.  As much as I was dying to see the big manwhore of the team get with the sweet sister, I was hoping there would be some time between what happened and when this book took place.

I shouldn’t have worried.  OUT OF THE GAME was the perfect story for these two.  Starting out playful and then switching into something more serious.  I loved getting to know Alex more, he’s so adorably carefree and he hides some of his hurt so deep you wouldn’t have suspected it.  I also found that I really liked Claire.  She was so buttoned up to now and it was nice seeing her explore things she hadn’t been able to before.  She was too busy being the perfect wife and never paid attention to what she really liked.  How to dress, what to do, how to act, even what she liked during sex.  Alex helped her explore many of those things.

OUT OF THE GAME was just a fun book to read!  I think after the Play by Play series by Jaci Burton, this is going to be my go to for sweet and sexy sport romance.  I love how light hearted it is, perfect when I need a cute pick me up book with a great story.  Bring on the next one!

About Kate Willoughby

Kate is in love with the sport of hockey. And the entire Los Angeles Kings team. Having lived most of her life completely uninterested in professional sports, she is surprised at the intensity of her enthusiasm and her growing collection of Kings merchandise.

She has held a variety of jobs—podiatrist's assistant, telemarketer, typist, gift wrapper, painter, illustrator's assistant, paste-up artist, calligrapher, teacher, transcriptionist and barista—but her favorite by far is author. She resides in Los Angeles with her husband, their two sons, and a Chihuahua named Mochi.

She is also a member of the Romance Writers of America and Los Angeles Romance Authors and winner of the 2009 EPPIE Award for Best Fantasy/Paranormal Erotic Romance.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
