**Penalty Box is the prequel to the Straight No Chaser series**

I’m the bad boy who will stain his soul to keep her safe.

She’s a runner.

Always has least, she’s always run from me.

Our history repeats relentlessly.


Secret trysts.

Pounding hearts.

Fiery stolen kisses.

Her retreating back.

Now she’s home, hunted by someone sinister.

The lesser of two evils, I’m the unlikely lifeline she reaches for.

Becoming her salvation means plunging my hard-won, respectable life into ruin.

But I’ve never had the strength to turn away from her hold on me.

I’ve always been hers.

She’s always been mine.

Savannah Bryant has run away from me—from us—for the last time.

How have I not read this series???
I am a bit bummed this was a novella
From the opening scene, I was addicted
I want more of the "No!!!" and "omg " moments - you know the scenes where you gasp out loud?
And the chemistry ⚗ 😍 between them
These two were scorching hot 🔥
Updated version
I wasn't sure how this was going to play out for me-
I'm not much of a derby fan was worried I would feel disconnected
But for this journey?
It was the perfect sport
The slow build between Mayhem and Priest?
It was paced perfectly
The tension between Tilly and Maisey?
It brought an important element to the overall story
Lana and the truth of her past?
It just endeared certain characters to me that much more
Eve and her jealousy?
I look forward to her story
Micha... that's a little secret you will have to find out on your own.
Not only will the main characters attach themselves to you but I believe you will be just as enamored with the supporting cast
I laughed -
I wiped away a couple of tears -
and I fell in love
Maisey had a rough start - a sort of reoccurring transplant history when it came to her childhood.
Nothing was ever permanent in her life.
She learned that the hard way and at a very young age.
Only two things take up residence in her world now
Derby and the children she volunteers with
There is no room for anything else in her life
Cain is bathing in a vat of self-loathing -
One of his own making and an intricate part of the story
He has been for years.
He was only back in town to help his sister -
Quick stop -
In and out -
No connections -
Ahhh hades!
The best-laid plans just got knocked away
Looks like life found a way to give them both what they needed even if they didn't know they wanted it

This storyline and characters are well written. It's a love story about the one that got away. Jackson always loved Savanah. She marries Colton and has a daughter named Skye. Savanah is not happy and attempts to leave Colton. He tortures Skye to keep Savanah close. Savanah returns to her home town for safety. This book is a fast read.

About the author (2022)

Echo Grayce mercilessly jabs her Pilot V5 gel pen straight into the heart of her readers.

Whether she’s delivering steamy small town, sexy heart hammering romantic suspense or taking you for a walk on the hot and flirty side with the single in the city relatives of your small town favorites, every one of her books holds a dose of angst, a double shot of romance, followed by a scorchin’ hot sexy times chaser that will leave you panting for more.

Born and raised in New England, she’s got Ben & Jerry’s pumping through her heart and real Vermont maple syrup dripping through her veins. She has an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings.

If you’re searching for her, she’s usually found sitting at her command terminal, planning to take over the world. When she takes back the pen she’s stabbed into her readers’ hearts, she creates beautifully brutal romance between fierce women and the men who topple off their alpha thrones for them.

She adores every last one of you who picks up one of her stories and makes her dreams come true.

And she’s done talking about herself in the third person now because that shit is weird.

*Echo out*
