Where have I been? I didn’t know how much I was missing out in this Blythe College series by Rochelle Paige. Outside the Box is the first book that I have read from this author and I can happily attest this won’t be the last. Rochelle Paige has me wanting more from the Blythe College cast. What I truly love about this series is that Ms. Paige made each book of the Blythe College series can be read as a standalone which was great for me since Outside the Box was the third book of the series and I went in totally blind not knowing what to expect. But let me just tell you, once you start reading you will not want to put the book down. First and foremost, I can gladly say Outside the Box will have you wanting your own very sexy Russian hockey player. The name that should be only left for you to speak of is Luka Ivanocich.
Luka Ivanocich is your not typical jock. He is smart, sexy, and a total badass possessive alpha male. Having been burned in the past, Luka is very cautious of his love life. He has built a wall surrounding his heart. So when he meets Aubrey, that came to an abrupt halt. Aubrey is a serial dater and a pregnancy scare caused her to put her serial dating to a standstill. Call it fate or luck, Aubrey needed a math tutor and it so happens to be that Luka was the one. Both Luka and Aubrey found themselves very attractive to one another and deciding to not let their past define them, they found themselves outside the box taking a chance on where this relationship could take them.
Outside the box...outside their comfort zone, Luka and Aubrey embarked on one hell of a sexy and hot romance. Their connection was sizzling and steamy. Ms. Paige made you want more Luka and Aubrey. On and off the ice, Luka scored major points with this book. What’s not to love about a book that has hot hockey player whispering sweet nothings in your ear in Russian. Talk about melting panties!! Can Aubrey put an end to her serial dating now that she has Luka? Or will Luka’s past and secrets hinder them from taking their new relationship to a new level?
Outside the Box is definitely one college romance that I truly enjoyed. It was fast paced and hot. Ms. Paige didn’t drag out necessary angst drama that I find myself cringing in dealing with college romance. What Ms. Paige did was that she had a story that kept readers attention to what was truly important: Luka and Aubrey. I found myself enjoying the possessiveness and alpha personality of Luka. And to top it off, Ms. Paige made their sex scene..ummm hot and juicy!! I guess you have to read to find out why..one hint: grapefruit! Overall, Outside the Box was a great read and I look forward to reading more works from Ms. Paige. Rochelle Paige is definitely an author that I will keep my eyes out for. She can turn any alpha possessive male HOT!! So if you are looking for a hot alpha male and a sweet love story, then I highly recommend Outside the Box.

OMG, wow! It broke my heart as soon as I got to the first page. Cheaters I definitely hate and to be with someone for four years is kind of hard specially if it's a long distance kind of relationship. I've never been on one, but from witnessing it, I wouldn't do it, even if it kills me. I'd like to have my other half with me all cuddled up, spooning and all. This story had my heart in my throat from reading the PROLOGUE. I just wanted to get to the bottom of the story.
Luka Ivanocich received a full scholarship as a hockey player in Blythe College. He was cheated on by his long distance girlfriend of four years. He's a hot and sexy faithful guy, who put up a wall, due to his past. He meets Aubrey and things changed. Aubrey had a false alarm with pregnancy and is now very cautious with dating and getting intimate. Attractions sparks between them and their plans to put these walls are out the window. They don't wanna live in the past forever, so they try and see where this would lead them. Thinking OUTSIDE THE BOX, that is. Luka's insecurities could ruin his relationship with Aubrey if he doesn't change. I love how he just wants her to himself and not care what others would say. At first, Luka heard different stories about her, that she slept with the entire school. BUT when she told him what the truth was, he was done for. Breaking down these walls, they built around their hearts that had been burned once wasn't easy, but it had to be done to make this relationship work.
It ended just how I wanted it to. There were times when I had to fan myself, just going gaga, trying to imagine Luka's sexy Russian accent. Such a sweet love story with some very heavy, hot sex and I want more please, Ms. Paige. Everyone deserves a chance at love and it's what this story is all about. If you are looking for a hot read with the sexiest hot Russian alpha-male, then you'd have to read this book. I highly recommend it!
