Review: Out of Play by Nyrae Dawn and Jolene Perry

Favorite Quote(s): “‘I like your hair. I hate that stupid hat you wear.’ She whispers the words against my lips. ‘Me too.’ ‘Any your lip ring.’ She pretends to nip at it. ‘Totally hot.’” Favorite Character: Penny. First Line: “Bishop! Bishop! Bishop! The chants from the crowd won’t stop rattling around in my head.” My Musings: When I first read the blurb for this novel, I was immediately hooked.

But he claims that he’s not addicted. So when his band stages an intervention and sends him off to isolation in Alaska, Bishop is feeling betrayed. He doesn’t have a problem. He doesn’t. Penny is a fantastic hockey player. One of the best in Seldon, Alaska. And she has numerous colleges hoping to give her scholarships to have her come play for their teams.

That was what I really tried to show in this book. No matter what these two characters went through, one thing that stayed consistent for them was each other. That doesn’t mean they never had conflict, but the emotions were always there. RR: Well, if I must say so myself, you nailed it on the head! I loved seeing their relationship progress over the novel. Next question! Do you outline when writing your books? ND: A little bit. I always start with just their story in my head. I always know their backstory and the conflict in the story before I start writing. Then I just sit down and go for it. Once I hit around 25% of the book, then I sit down and handwrite each scene out, in order. RR: Very interesting. Which character frustrated you most while writing Four Summers? ND: Alec. He frustrated me, but my heart breaks for him too. I understand and sympathize with him and hope readers will by […]
