Baseball's biggest player is about to get played.
Night Games by Alexis Anne is AVAILABLE NOW!




WES I love women and women love me. It's not my fault I'm irresistible. Okay, I may be a little cocky too. All I have to do is post a picture of myself shirtless with my cat, Snickers, and the women flock to me. It probably helps that I'm good with my bat and balls. A selfie, a smile, and I have them in bed—but never in a relationship. Until Carrie entered the game. She may not know it, but she owns me. And I'm not letting her go.

CARRIE I'm a professional. No, not THAT kind of professional. I'm an orthopedic physician for the St. Pete Mantas and my job is everything. I love the game and I love my players … but I never fall *in* love with any of them. Especially not players like Wes. Especially Wes. He thinks life is one big game. One sexy, romantic, and sometimes sweet, game that’s left me confused and little bit worried... *I may have actually fallen for the ultimate player.* I'll have to beat him at his own game if I have any shot at walking away with my heart intact.

This was my first book from Alexis Anne. It is technically part of a series but I read it as a standalone and followed the story/characters just fine. This blurb was definitely what made me want to read this book. A sexy baseball player and a romance with the team physician? Sign me up.

I had a bit of a hard time with this book. At first I thought it was the format. This story is told in dual POV, which is fine, but also has flashbacks. Now, the flashbacks are needed for the backstory between these two so I tried to keep that in mind.

My issue was with Carrie. I just couldn't connect with her. I love a good, strong heroine but I just didn't get that vibe completely from her. Did she have strengths? Yes. She's smart, she's confident. But I just wanted her to open her eyes a bit sooner as to what she was doing. For all of her smarts she was also immature to me, which did annoy me. I wanted to love her and I just never got there.

Now Wes? Wes I did like. I loved his determination and confidence. I loved his sexiness. I loved how he tried to win Carrie over. I enjoyed his POV very much.

These two characters do have chemistry. Their sexy times are sexy. I believed they had feelings for one another, even when they didn't fully acknowledge them. They have good banter between them outside of the bedroom as well, which is always a good thing to me.

The book was written well. While I didn't always love the flashbacks I do think they were necessary to this story. I enjoyed this author's style and will try another book of hers. I do recommend this book.

About the Author:

Former archaeologist Alexis Anne (who also writes romantic suspense as Alexis Sykes) has worked as an oral historian, GIS specialist, field archaeologist, college professor, and small business owner, before deciding that working from home and writing books was a lot more satisfying. She writes steamy, sexy romance with one half of her brain and romantic suspense, action adventure, and children's books with the other half. Growing up she traipsed through the islands of the Gulf Coast, camped in the Everglades, dove the Keys, and generally felt more at home spending her days outdoors with a good book. She currently lives in a home filled with wild men (otherwise known as her extremely extroverted husband, The Sexy Editor, and their two kids), a husky, and a superhero guinea pig.
