*This anthology does not contain calories, just eleven original, never-before-seen stories by the following authors: Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, Charleigh Rose, Kennedy Ryan, LJ Shen, Meghan Quinn, Rochelle Paige, Ella Fox, Kate Stewart, Emma Scott, and Sara Ney. We aren’t responsible for melted devices.
When it comes to sweet, sexy and swoony sports romance stories, Team Player knocked it out of the park. Homerun, touchdown, etc. 😉 These 11 novellas are filled with different plots, yet go together in one Anthology so well. With all the different books to pick from, it’s so easy to lose a few hours getting sucked inside the pages. Cocky heroes, witty heroines, funny meet cutes, friends to lovers, second chance loves, mistaken identity and oops babies- it has everything you could want!
The best thing about all these great authors being in one place, is you are bound to fall in love with what you are reading. Some of the novella’s I loved, others were good, and some weren’t for me.
I have decided that I’m only going to go into details over the novella’s that I loved.
The End Zone by L.J. Shen:
Eeek, this best friends to lovers tale was oh so sexy, oh so good!
Jolie and Sage have been best friends for years, and even though Jolie has had a crush on Sage since pretty much the moment they met, they have never crossed that line. Partly because she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship, and mostly because Sage is a huge player/manwhore. She knows that if she gets into his bed, he will leave with more of her heart, and she will leave empty handed.
Only… things are quite the way Jolie thinks they are. And when Sage asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend, things go from pretend to oh so real super fast.
This was my first L.J. Shen book and she has a new fan! Funny, steamy and filled with swoons!
Full Court Press by Kennedy Ryan
This is one of the stories that tugs a little more on the heartstrings. When reporter Avery first meets NBA star Decker, he is standing there in a towel. After hitting on her and asking her out, to which she turns him down, (despite her attraction to him) they both go on their way.
Years later, Avery finds herself working with Decker as he co-stars on her show for a while. The attraction is still there, though life has changed for the both of them.
If you love a slow burn with sexual tension, you will LOVE this one!
Back in The Game by Meghan Quinn
Do you like adorable single dads, who dress up to make their daughter smile? Strong, quirky heroines? If so, you will love Back in The Game!
Calder is a single NHL star raising his little girl on his own, after his ex leaves both of them. While he is out, dressed up like a fairy, he meets meets Rachel. He is instantly attracted to her and drawn to her personality.
Some of this story is told through text messages and oh my gosh, do they bring the laughs, heat and swoons. I loved watching the natural growth between Calder and Rachel.
Yard Sale by Charleigh Rose
This was my first time reading Charleigh and man oh man, do I have to look up her other titles.
Cam is a snowboarder who loves to have fun, be out on the snow, and hook up with the ladies. One night at the bar he meets the gorgeous Mollie, who to his dismay, wants nothing to do with him.
Well, at first. 😉
The two end up enjoying a super sexy night together and Cam is actually disappointed when Mollie disappears in the morning.
Mollie knew Cam isn’t the type to form connections, especially since she’s from out of town. However, Mollie doesn’t leave empty handed. She soon realizes she is pregnant. Eeek!!
Awhile later she goes back and runs into Cam again. The fire between them is still there, but is it the real deal? And how will Cam handle the bun in the oven?
Ah, I just adored this one!
Switch Hitter by Sara Ney
Oh my gosh! This might be my favorite of the entire book. It has the Sara Ney wit and charm for sure.
When Amelia’s twin sister Lucy asks her to pretend to be her for a date, Amelia isn’t sure. Especially when it’s with some jock named Dash. Despite her best efforts, Amelia ends up agreeing to the date. How bad can it be right?
Well… it turns out it isn’t bad at all, but oh so good. Too good, in fact, especially since Dash thinks he is with Lucy.
Only, Dash isn’t sure the girl he with is the same one as before. There is a new found sizzle between them that isn’t there.
Eeek! There is so much chemistry between Amelia and Dash. And Dash, sigh, Dash will steal your heart. This one was so sweet, so funny, so perfect!
