Release Day Launch - Risky Game by Tracy Solheim

Title: Risky Game
Series: Out of Bounds #3
Author: Tracy Solheim
Published: May 6, 2014

Just when he was at the top of his game… She changed 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 a 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…



I love me a good jock romance. Football players, hockey players and fighters are my favorites. This is the third book in this series, each book centers around different characters so it's not necessary to read the first two to understand what's going on in this book.

I loved this opposites attract story. Hotshot tight-end Brody Janik has a problem and Shay Everet,brainy PhD candidate, knows about a big secret that could ruin his career. When information starts leaking from the locker room to a mysterious blogger, Brody believes Shay is the source the blogger is getting the info from. Begin the blackmail fun and games.

I really enjoyed this book and read it cover to cover in just a few hours. A nice, light, fun and sexy romance that I really needed at the time, I've been reading some emotionally heavy books lately. It's definitely a good story with great characters. One-Click this one, football lovers!

Author Tracy Solheim has written her share of best sellers and note-worthy books. Unfortunately most of them line the shelves of dusty government offices around the world never to see the light of day. She hopes to change that with her series of contemporary romantic fiction novels published by Berkley Books.

“I guess you could say I’m a frustrated sports writer at heart, but I love writing—and reading—books centered around sports. I can thank my dad for that. He introduced me to Dick Francis novels when I was a teenager and I was hooked. I am also a big fan of the happily ever after endings of romance novels, so it was only natural that I combined the two elements in my fiction debut.”
