Catch her if he can...Dr. Elizabeth LaValley's life works just fine, thank you very much. She's a successful anesthesiologist, and she's put the chaos of her youth and family behind her. When hottie pitcher Jon Farell shows up in her hospital, she's the only one who doesn't fawn over him. Sure she feels the heat between them, but being alone is safe and predictable. She di ...more

I don't usually read Harlequin Superromances. They're too long and don't have nearly enough sex. But I make exceptions for uncommon stories, and I'm glad I read Out of His League. The sports romance isn't uncommon, of course, but the prickly, antisocial heroine is, and I really liked this exploration of an introvert figuring out how to open herself up to another person - a very public person at that.

I really liked how long it took for the couple to admit their attraction to each other, and then
I think the socially-awkward heroine is one we can all relate to on some level. Her tendency to pull away and live inside her own head made her hard to relate to at times, but made her a more realistic character, imo.

I like the emotional undercurrents of the book and applaud the author for touching on them.

Having said that, it was hard to read at times. The constant push-pull from the h/h was irritating and I struggled to buy into their continued attraction. The first time they met it made sen

I gave this a B+ at AAR and wrote, "I’ve reviewed two other books by Ms. Parry, and her books continue to interest me; this is no exception. At its bare bones, the story seems trite: a successful woman doctor meets a star baseball player in a hospital. I thought I knew where this was going: she’s all brains, he’s all brawn, but somehow they get together. I was completely wrong. These are two complex characters with numerous issues and problems. Their mutual attraction is only part of the story.

Elizabeth LaValley is an anesthesiologist, the perfect profession for someone who doesn't like to talk to patients or get pulled into their lives.

Jon Farrell is a pro baseball pitcher needing a tumor removed from his catching hand. Fearful it is cancer (like what killed his mother), he begs Elizabeth to tell him the outcome of the surgery as soon as he wakens. When Liz isn't available when he wakes up, he goes in search and finds himself talking to her nephew, who'se been palmed off on her when

This was a slow going book. I was close to dnf-ing it twice but I'm glad I kept going. I liked the heroine and her social awkwardness and how the hero wanted to help her coming out of her shell but I think there was too much saving on both sides going on. I didn't buy into their motivation why they wanted to keep seeing each other and I'm also waving a red flag for everyone who doesn't want to read about annoying kids in romance novels. Borderline annoying kid in this one. ...more

I wanted to like this because I can relate to the heroine in a lot of ways. But, I just really didn't get the attraction. I didn't understand their connection. The first half of the book, they were each in their own head way too much. It felt cold.

It's been 3 or 4 months since I've managed to finish a romance novel, with everything I've tried failing to grab me and winding up abandoned. Not this one. It's not perfect, but very, very good. 4 1/2 stars.

"Parry's sweet story does a nice job of portraying both Elizabeth's and Jon's insecurities - and their eventual ability to triumph over them." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars

DNF. characters motivations weren't working for me. Plus, I love baseball and don't need a fresher course!

Cathryn Parry’s first piece of romantic writing was a love letter she wrote to the boy who sat next to her in first grade. By the next Christmas, she was asking for a typewriter to organize her growing collection of adventure stories inspired by Nancy Drew.

But it wasn’t until Cathryn was an engineer working a less-than-inspiring job in a ball bearings factory that she dared to write her first nove
