Okay, so the truth is sports romances are my guilty pleasure *blush* and I was excited to read this one after quite liking the first of the series One night with a quarterback sadly, this book didn't quite do it for me. :(
Here we have Killian who is the kicker of the Santa Fe Bobcats who happens to be a self imposed loner on and off the team. He chooses this because he has a secret that needs to be
I honestly have to applaud Ms. Murray for her ingenuity. I’ve been a lifelong reader, and at the tender age of 50+ I’ve read… er, doing the math… a gajillion books by now, and I’ve never never never come across the twist that she uses as the reason that this football player plays hard to get in this inspired, sexy, contemporary sports romance about a Santa Fe Bobcats player and a sports journalist. It was awesome to be guessing and guessing and to hav ...more
I loved the first book in this series and enjoyed this one just as much.
Killian is a pro NFL kicker with a secret. As a result, he doesn't let anyone into his life...not his teammates, not the fans, and sure not the media. He has a son who's he's sacrificed everyone in his world for...to protect him. But that's the big mystery throughout so much of this book...why is it so important that NO ONE find out about this child? I couldn't see what could make that secret such a huge deal...unt ...more

It’s nice to take a break now and then from historical romance novels and I was so interested to read a contemporary romance novel featuring sports celebrities. I really enjoyed the sports books by Jill Shalvis and Jaci Burton, so I was hoping this was along similar lines. It was a great read. I’m not a huge NFL fan. The most I know about it is that there are games on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights and my hubby is glued to the tv. But with this book ...more
A sweet one of the guys report falling for her interviewee kicker on a football team. Throw romance and football together and I am ready to tackle it and score a touch down!
Just look at that cover. It makes me want to drool. I can take hair on a man's chest or not, so this is one of those not moments. Makes you want to ...more

I was thrilled to get back to the Santa Fe Bobcats …. Baseball season is over so …. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL! Sorry! I guess you have to be a football fan and watch a lot of it on TV. But, the Bobcats are fictional so I guess I’ll have to swoon over them instead of rooting for my favorite team … nope, not going there and making enemies! And, with all the controversy surrounding the NFL th ...more
Killian Reeves is the quiet kicker for the Sante Fe Bobcats. He's perceived as a loner, an a-hole, and does not really have friends on the team. He does not hang out with them or the groupies. He kind of lives in his own head and deals with his own hidden issues. He has secrets and keeps his personal life private for a reason.
Aileen Roger is a struggling reporter who needs a story and it needs to be something that no one else has exposed. So Killian is the perfect choice since no o ...more
I have been a big fan of Ms. Murray since I read her Sempre Fi Series then I read the first book in the Santa Fe Bobcats Series and I’ve been hooked. I knew that it was going to take some time to really get to know Killian’s story but once it was told I couldn’t believe it. He was one of the characters that it wasn’t hard not to fall in love with. Then there ...more

THE POWER OF THE PRESS
The obnoxious power of the press, after a “friend” nearly ruined your career, and love for a child sounds like something right out of the news, right?
And, there’s no reason you wouldn’t want to tar all reporters with the same brush, except maybe when you fall in love with one and admire her integrity.
And when you realize your also cheating your kid.
The problem I had here ...more

Santa Fe Bobcats kicker, Killian Reeves, does not allow groupie interaction. Not anymore, never again. He does not like reporters. He's a man of few words and throws off a "personal bubble" vibe that even teammates can't ignore. Most of the other players have even given up trying to include him altogether. But he has his reasons for staying so isolated from the pack. He has a secret that he does no ...more
Loving Him Off the Field is the second book in author Jeanette Murray's sports romance series Santa Fe Bobcats. Admittedly, I was surprised that this was about the team's kicker, Killian Reeves, because I was expecting the second one to either be about Josiah Walker or Stephen Harrison, the most mentioned supporting characters from the first book and the closest friends to that book's main male character, Trey Owens. But regardless of my assum ...more
I received a copy of this book to write an honest review for Cocktails and Books.
LOVING HIM OFF THE FIELD is an engaging story about Killian Reeves who is a kicker for the Bobcats, a professional football team. He’s a nice guy, but he doesn’t have any friends and keeps his distance from everyone, including his teammates. He’s not the typical high profile jock, he doesn’t have any interest in groupies, media attention or living the high life; he lives a simple, so ...more

I was pleasantly surprised at this modern romance because along with the obvious love story the author developed the characters enough that the story shone through the chemistry and subsequent steamy “sex scenes” between them..
Killian is suffering from lack of confidence in his role on the team (after all he is only a kicker) and because of his mistake in the past he won’t allow himself to take part in the comradery that t ...more

When she's not writing her next romance, she's found hanging out with the new friends she's made here, catching up with old friends from past duty stations on Facebook, or surfing Pinterest pretending she can cook.
