Time Out by Stacey Lynn


Time Out

by Stacey Lynn

Self-Published

Book 2 in the Nashville Steel Series


A one-night stand with a sexy stranger has me in over my head and calling time out…


Most of my team celebrated our Monday Night Football win with family and a few drinks. I celebrated mine with a smoking hot brunette.


One wild night of passion, with chemistry off the charts, we had our fun. In the morning, just when I was thinking of asking her for one more night—she bolted faster than I can score a touchdown.


It’s my rookie year. I’m breaking records and our team is gearing up to head to the playoffs. A Championship win is the only thing I’m focused on. Until my one-night stand shows up at my doorstep on Christmas Eve and drops a present in my lap that turns my whole word upside down.


Maggie’s pregnant. And the baby is mine. My teammate’s think she’s after my multi-million-dollar contract, but I believe her. Either way, I’m not the kind of guy who walks away from his responsibilities.


Now Maggie’s living under my roof and getting under my skin. I want her close so I can take care of her and our future child.


If only I could keep my hands off her, my life would be a hell of a lot less complicated.

Before I begin, I would like to thank Valentine PR and Stacey Lynn for sending me an arc of Time Out in exchange for a fair and honest review.


This is the second book I have reviewed for Stacey Lynn and her Nashville Steel series, and I love it.

To be honest, I didn't love it as much as the first book.

There wasn't enough angst. Actually, I found this to be a very light romance, where there wasn't much in the way of the couple. It was steady sailing from pretty much the first few chapters on.

Which is great ... but can also be a bit boring story wise.

I found myself intrigued by the side characters more than I usually would have been.

I'm trying to figure out who the next book will be about. There are a couple of choices, but I'm thinking it will be Dawson? We'll see.

I think the problem with the actual storyline is that there was too much happening.

The unexpected pregnancy.

Davis and the rest of the Steel's trying to get to the super bowl.

Davis' worries about telling his overprotective family about the pregnancy.

Maggie's issues with her family.

Maggie struggling to become a singer.

There was a lot of potential for the overall arc of this book, but I found it all fell a bit flat.

Am I terrible for wanting a bit more angst? A bit more struggle? A little bit more of a slow burn?


All that being said - I couldn't put it down.

So while I had my issues, it was still really good.

I was invested in Davis and Maggie, as well as the other characters in this story.

I loved their chemistry, the sex is sizzling, and they are just very sweet with one another.


Honestly, I love this series so far. Despite a few issues with wrapping up the multiple possibilities this story could have taken, I was addicted to the story, and finished it in a day. I was left wanting more - and I can't wait for the next Nashville Steel story.






Coming Soon after publication June 27th, 2023
