Review: Out Of Her League ( Suspense Series #1 ) by Kaylea Cross

Out of her League by Kaylea Cross

Christa Bailey is one cut away from making the Olympic softball team when threats from an obsessed fan jeopardize her dream, and her safety. Forced to put her life on hold, she reluctantly turns to ERT officer Rayne Hutchinson for help, praying the police catch her stalker before she is cut from the team or does something stupid, like fall in love with her unattainable protector. But Christa's stalker is something far more sinister than either of them could have imagined. With her life at stake, can Rayne keep Christa safe from this patient predator? 




This is more romance than suspense. Seeing that the cop hero, Rayne only whisk the heroine, Christa away and being all knight in shining armor. He was not actually involved with the investigation into the stalker issue. I don't really feel the suspense much until the last minute during the showdown. 

Love the romance that started off slow and steady, their easy camaraderie, the humor behind every conversation. Christa is a the good-girl, the girl you bring home to meet your mother. Rayne is the ladies man, the man your mom warns you about. They knew each other through their mutual friends, but were never close until Christa had a stalker issue and might just need Rayne's help.

Christa was constantly at edge about her stalker/potential murderer. Initially I was too worried that Christa was a little too unhinged with her situation to be in the mood for romance with Rayne, but everything works out perfectly well. The girl is a survivor. Rayne, oh he's such a sweetheart. He had some of those Southern charm and ever the gentleman. He can charm your pants off and you will start thinking whether is he serious? 

The secondary characters in this book were awesome too. From their friends, Drew and Teryl, to Bryn and even Rayne's parent. I swear I want to read the last book in the series, which is about Rayne's parent story. There is a scene with Rayne and his dad that brought tears to my eyes. 

I laughed so much and cried some while reading this one. This book is definitely a keeper and I might just be motivated to see through the rest of the series.

Rating 4.5/5
