Review: Crossing the Line (Out of Bounds #2) by Megan Slayer

Opposites can attract and sometimes come together with explosive results.

Ryan Malone punts for the Dragons and likes his life as an art restorer. Love isn’t in his game plan—unless Paul Toth is involved. They’ve known each other forever but have never taken the next step. Ryan’s not sure if Paul can accept his kinky needs. All it takes is one chance to see if sparks will fly.

Paul’s ready and willing to snag the sexy punter. He doesn’t care what team Ryan plays for as long as he’s got Ryan at night. But Ryan’s holding something back. Can Paul unlock whatever he’s hiding before their burgeoning affair gets struck down by penalties?

Ryan and Paul spend their Saturday’s playing league football and their nights thinking about each other. They are opponents on the field. They both feel the attraction. Neither one is sure how to act on it considering they play for different teams. Paul is hoping that they can get past their weekend activity rivalry to find common ground. Ryan wants to find a man that is open for dominating bondage games in the bedroom.

I love when I can actually see where the title of my read comes from. Crossing the Line is one such title. Ryan and Paul crossed many lines. The lines crossed were the ones that got the relationship started, explored new bedroom activities, and most of all allowed for some much needed healing of one of these sexy art loving football players.

My only complaint was some of the dialogue seemed short, abridged, and choppy. Sometimes this is just something that happens with novellas. The short amount of pages doesn’t allow for numerous lengthy conversations. Some of the shortness in dialogue be from the guys and their newness to each other, but there many times it didn’t feel that way to me.

As far as the Out of Bounds series is concerned Crossing the line works as a standalone. Out of Bounds is also a multi-author anthology from Total e-Bound.

One of these sexy men drives a Jeep!
