I really enjoyed the first 2 books in Deidre's series (Body Check and Fairplay), I thought it took a slight dip in the third book (Total Rush), and then redeemed itself with The Penalty Box (although the Paul van Dorn character seemed to have had a total personality transplant since Fairplay). Chasing Stanley was extremely disappointing. Delilah was annoying and I never fully understood her hang up about being around people. Jason was arrogant and extremely immature, so easily influenced by what everyone else thought, and not strong enough to make his own mind up. I can't see what either one would have seen in the other, especially as Delilah was probably covered in dog hair and drool and smelt of dog the whole time. I also didn't get why the whole issue of anti-semitism was even raised, as it only served as a reason for Jason to fall out with his team mate. It was a very deep subject to use for such a minor part of the plot.
Hopefully Deidre's next book will be a return to form, with a hero strong enough to know his own mind, and a heroine that doesn't go around insulting his friends.
