New from Laura Chapman, the third installment of her fantasy football romantic comedy Queen of the League series . . .
After rushing to the altar and moving across the country, Harper Duquaine (or is it MacLaughlin, now?) is in uncharted territory. What once seemed like a promising opportunity to advance her husband’s career while giving her some much needed independence and adventure has proven to be a bust. By the time fall rolls around again, she’s back in a boring job by day and overstocking her inventory of crocheted scarves by night. Not even the prospect of a new football season holds much excitement.
At least that’s what she thought. Harper suddenly finds herself the manager of not one but two fantasy football teams—each with its own set of drama. Between the added pressure of her new marriage, an unexpected career prospect, and the hiccups created by people from her past and present worlds, Harper quickly finds herself going from bored to overwhelmed.
Can she hold up under the pressure, or will Harper learn the hard way that the turf isn’t always greener on the other field?
Review: I loved this book! I loved the series! To be honest I think I have a girl crush on the author! Well maybe not a crush but I definitely love her style. Author Laura Chapman never disappoints with her witty and charming style of writing that leaves you turning the pages with a smile on your face wondering what the Queen of the League will get into next. THREE & OUT turns out to be my favorite in the series with its funny yet emotional feel.
Harper and Brook find themselves newly married, newly relocated to Seattle and in the beginning of a new fantasy football season. How will Harper cope with another season? Who will she pick? What will her strategies be ? Yes! Strategies! Harper finds herself immersed in 2 leagues this season and there is never a lack of hilarity or drama when football and Harper are involved. Harper and Brook find themselves back in a familiar position with her becoming a widow to football season, so in true Harper fashion she turns to knitting and her fantasy league. Harper shows a deeper level of maturity and understanding in this book although her sass isn’t ever far off. Brook continues to have hope and faith but you get a deeper feeling that even though hes an amazing coach on the field and off, he actually doesn’t go unaffected by life’s curveballs making him seem more human. Although lets face it, we would all benefit with a Brook in our life.
THREE & OUT is so much more than fantasy football this go around. It touts love, friendship, sensitive social issues, growth and laughter. With every door that closes one opens up and at the end of the day what happens, happens and how you handle it is what separates you from the crowd, that’s the lesson I learned from this amazingly awesome book.
Note: This book wasn’t written as a stand alone and I highly recommend you read FIRST & GOAL and GOING FOR TWO first. They are just as amazing as the 3rd installment !!!

In Laura Chapman’s Queen of the League series, Harper Duquaine joins a fantasy football league to prove she can hang with the guys. Only problem: she doesn’t know a sleeper from a keeper (or any of the other lingo thrown her way). Her competitive streak soon emerges, and she catches the interest of her top two competitors. With a slew of conflicting advice in her real and fantasy worlds, Harper must figure out how to play the game and come out a winner.
