Alex Sullivan may be the San Diego Barracudas’ resident playboy, but he hasn’t been able to forget the woman who kissed him like her life depended on it ten months ago. When he sees her again at a teammate’s wedding, he can’t think of anything but spending more time with her. Preferably naked.
Claire Marzano lost years catering to an overbearing husband, and she’s not going to answer to anyone ever again. A hot fling is just what she needs to get back in the game, and that’s exactly what sexy Alex offers—one wild long weekend away, with no promises or obligations.
But that one weekend changes everything. Despite knowing full well Alex isn’t the kind to ever commit, Claire is falling for him. And Alex secretly imagines a future with his strong, smart “accidental girlfriend.” Until a surprise announcement and an on-ice accident threaten to derail everything…or cause Alex to finally ditch his old ways and become the man Claire needs him to be.
Those of you who read On the Surface (In The Zone Book 1), Tim and Erin’s story, you may remember Erin’s older sister, Claire. Claire helped Tim decorate his apartment. She also had an encounter of the sexy kind with Alex Sullivan at the team’s unofficial watering hole, Moe’s. I hadn’t really intended for Claire to have her own book. I really only put her through the marriage wringer because I needed for Erin to miss the hockey game. Funny how little things like that can turn into big things, like an entire novel.
Anyway, mark the date. Out of the Game comes out March 16. That’s when you’ll get to see Alex and Claire make their way past all the obstacles I put in their way, and I put some doozies.
