Out of the Game Kate Willoughby (In the Zone #3)
I’m so glad I’ve found author Kate Willoughby. I seem to like her hockey heroes, I wasn’t sure I’d find another to rival Tim Hollander, but Alex Sullivan did just that. On the surface this should have been a pretty easy and predictable read. Bad boy, man whore and all that, falls for the “good girl”. Of course, bad boy had a tough childhood which kind of excuses his behaviour but said good girl turns him around.
Read that, a lot and happy to read it again and again.
So, I wasn’t expecting the emotional depth and roller coaster ride of this book. In fact, at times I was a bit shocked at how much I felt for Alex. Yes, he was immature and irresponsible, and if I was Clare I would have insisted on a far better apology before I would have forgiven him. However, even though his story might be considered a cliché there was something both endearing and raw about Alex. I found his personal ending quite sad and a bit unexpected.
Clare was another good heroine from Kate Willoughby. I like her everyday approach to her female characters – girls you can relate to.
