Night Games (The Storm Inside #6) by Alexis Anne



Goodreads Review



Baseball's biggest player is about to get 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.


I swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth I cheated on this book but I’ll get to that later. I am so mad, really mad. Smack people into next week mad. All because of this book.
This is how I cheated on the book I skipped to just reading the present-day chapters which is Wes's POV (and they were bloody brilliant) because Carrie’s POV ruined would have ruined the whole book for me. Up until the 46 % mark I read her POV but this woman. I mean really this woman is an utter cow/mare you name that is what she is. I can’t stand her. I despise her. I have nothing nice to say about her at all. I just don’t get her. Carrie’s POV takes place six weeks earlier which I also am not a fan of.
I did feel the connection between them but that didn’t help me like Carrie more in any way or form.
Based solely on Wes’s POV I would give it four stars if I'd have continued with Carrie it would be a two star read. I've settled on three stars. Trying to be as fair as I can here. I’m sure I missed out on a huge chunk but no way could I deal with that woman. I didn’t believe the feelings she has for Wes. Right from the start, she was only interested in his looks and trying to get him out of her system and they hadn’t even met. I like strong women and I have no problem with women being honest and living their sexuality the way they want to. But Carrie, oh my God I am working myself into a frigging rage here.

The best thing about the book?

WES

Wes had so much more to give and he gave everything and I mean everything. He fought hard, harder than any Hero I have read in a long time. I was shouting at him to cut his losses and move on but when you’re in love you do really stupid shit.

I know what is good for the goose is good for the gander shite I get it. But I didn't get her hang ups. She is truly horrible to Wes in the past and so callous in the present. IMO. But I guess it is her way for self-preservation.

The author sucked me in with Wes though and he is an amazing Hero he made the book.
Light, smart and funny the complete opposite to what I read before this book. You need a pick me up then this is the book for you. If I had known this is book 6 in the series I have to say I wouldn’t have requested it.
Just because I didn’t mesh with the book doesn’t mean that you won’t.
