Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Saints and Sinners #3

Gia Jilani had rules.

They kept her safe and her head in the game.

As the NFL's first female general manager, there were risks to be weighed and taken.

Like Kai Pukui, the linebacker helping her team dominate on the field.

The same quiet, beautiful man who stares too long at her and reminds her of how decadent, and risky living life can be.

But when Gia discovers why Kai seems so familiar and why she feels so drawn to him, things like risks and love become secondary to loss and pain.

Gia will have to decide what's more important - a life worth risking or a love worth losing.


Offsides is a beautifully written forbidden love, sports romance that has all of the feels.  There were moments when I was swooning as well as times where I was ugly crying.  I loved Kai in that he is sexy, kind-hearted, and loyal.  He is essentially an ideal book boyfriend! One cannot help, but admire his persistence when it comes to pursuing Gia.  Gia endured a devastating heartbreak many years before and this has shaped how she approaches relationships.  She has built a protective barrier around her heart. She knows that she shouldn’t get involved with the much younger lineman, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn towards Kai.  These two make such a great couple, but they have many obstacles that they need to overcome.  This book was full of passion complete with sizzling chemistry between Kai and Gia, but there was also moments where I found myself reaching for the tissues.  Offsides is a remarkable book about love - in the past, present, and future.  You will find yourself pulled into Kai’s and Gia’s story  as they embark on a remarkable journey.  

Offsides is an interconnected standalone novel in this author’s Saints and Sinners series.  The prequel to Gia’s story can be found in The Last Love of Luka Hale and it has been recommended that the novel Thin Love be read prior to the prequel.  Full disclosure:  I’ve gone into this book completely blind in that I have not read Thin Love nor any of the previous books in this Saints and Sinners series and I had no trouble following along this book.

I received an early complimentary version of this book.
