Night Games - Storm Inside Series #6 - By Alexis Anne



About the Book


Baseball's biggest player is about to be played.

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.

Addicted 2 Romance Review


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is #6 in the series and I have never read this author before. This book is supposed to stand alone but at times I felt very lost in the story. I would definitely read #5 Summer Heat (LINK) before this story because many, many scenes run concurrent with that book and the previous couples story in Summer Heat left me at times lost.

This book also goes back and forth a lot. This is not my favorite way for authors to tell a story. Most times I ignore the back in time scenes but in this story it really was a huge part of the story so I could not do that. 

The actual current story which happens to start in Vegas  where Carrie and Wes wake up married, that part I enjoyed. I tend to like books in the present and to be honest the past scenes with Carrie did not make me love her. She essentially is a one night stand type of girl and to some degree she targets Wes. But she does want a relationship, she just wants a one night stand.

However, Wes well he is a fantastic character. I beyond loved him in the present and in the past. He totally made this book as he is hot, sexy and well he pulls out all the stops to win Carrie for FOREVER.

Did I love this story? No. It was a good read but the authors style of zipping in the past and then to the present is not what I enjoy in books. However she does a great job of telling the story and she created a character to love with Wes.

Would I read another book of hers? Summer Heat sounded interesting and I actually liked the two characters of Roman and June where in this book I did not love Carrie. I definitely think that you should absolutely at least read that story before reading this story.

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.
