Review: Playing Without Rules (Men of Spring Baseball #1) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsThe truth always has a way of finding the light.


Playing Without Rules is Book 1 of 4 in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently only 2 available in audio, but the rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Being the first in the series, this could be read as a standalone. I personally would suggest starting with the novella.

Length: 4 hrs and 23 mins

Content Advisory:
Author’s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.




♥ Story ♥

This is a tale of second chances. If you are into those kinds of tales, then you are going to like this. As a mom, I can relate to wanting whats best for your child. I didn’t quite agree with some of Marcia’s actions, but could understand the logic behind her choices.


Marcia ❤ Brock


Marcia

Marcia Powers told a lie four years ago over a miscommunication and has been running from it ever since, despite never leaving her small town. The holes she digs for herself just keep expanding, as all lies do. Bianca is the one that truly suffers in the wake of her mother’s delusions of grandeur.

Brock

Brock Carter did what the love of his life asked of him and left town to pursue his baseball career. He wanted to make himself worthy of her heart. Now he’s back, and determined to claim his dream, but Marcia doesn’t want him to have anything to do with her or her “little sister”. A child that just happens to be close in age to the time frame he left town, but that thought never occurs.

I had more feels for Brock and the other members of Marcia’s family than I did for her. She is a sloppy stack of pancakes on a good day, and she is a bit of a hypocrite. Luckily, the extra personalities balances everything out. There is a sneak peak at the end for Book 02, Playing Catch and it is quite amusing. I can’t wait!

Review: Playing the Rookie (Men of Spring Baseball Novella) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsSomebody is wearing their horny pants!


Playing the Rookie is a Novella in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently 4 parts in this series with 2 being available in audio.
The rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Book notes for Playing the Rookie states that this Novella can be read at anytime along with the Men of Spring Series 1-3.
I personally would suggest reading it first. ♥

Length: 2 hrs and 32 mins

Content Advisory:
Author’s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.

Ebook currently free with Kindle Unlimited



♥ Story ♥

This Novella is short but oh so sassy good. If you are starting with this title, then you get some early introductions to the sights and sounds that makes up the “world” that is this series. You will also get to meet and greet a few characters that you will see again.

Jessica ❤ Jay

Jessica Song is interning for spring training, and spends way to much time talking to her lady bits. Jay Pak Ahn is a sponsored rookie pitcher from Korea trying to make a good showing that will hopefully lead to a long term spot on an American team.

Both of them are horny and tired of waiting for a relationship to get some. They are both gun shy on the relationship front because of their exes and decide to help each other out so they can indulge in the carnal. There is just this one big problem, neither are truly casual sex kinda people so they can’t help but get feelings involved in the equation.

I feel bad for Jessica that her default thoughts on any expressions of emotion by Jay is automatically one of regret. Once she finally confesses her back story, you can see where that stems from, but she does take it to the extreme. Usually those thoughts come with the goodbyes or lack of contact after the deed, not the moment after climax.

There are some twists and turns that will come as a surprise. This does not play out in a predictable fashion. It does have some throat punch worthy moments, so be prepared to run the gambit of emotions even for a short listen.

Review: No Ordinary Billionaire by J. S. Scott

My ReviewsHot Doctor + Hot Cop = Smexylicious!


No Ordinary Billionaire is #01 of 07 in The Sinclairs Series by J.S. Scott. 1-6 are currently published and on Audible to listen to right now through the Unlimited program. #07 is currebtly a pre-order ebook with an expected publication of April 24th, 2018. I’m pretty sure the audio will be out about the same time, as usual.

Elizabeth Powers narrates the series thus far.

HEA with no cliffhanger!

This series is heavily connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is not only more enjoyable that way, but you will miss out on the little things, as well as spoil yourself on the earlier titles if you read them out of order.

Length: 8 hrs and 28 mins
20 chapters plus an epilogue

Warning: SEX!
Yes, both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.

Trigger Warnings
There are attacks, hostage situations, as well as threats/attempts at rape.



♥ Story ♥

Dante Sinclair ❤ Sarah Baxter

Book #01 is Dante’s story.

I think less than a full year has passed since book #0.05 The Billionaire’s Christmas. That one ended on New Years, and I don’t think it has cycled back around yet, but I could be wrong.

This story takes a dark turn in the middle that may make some people a bit unsettled. Don’t fret though, its not too bad and not the main overall focus. This is more a story of two pessimistic souls coming together.


Christ! It should have been me! Why wasn’t I standing where Patrick was standing when the shooter opened up and fired?


Dante Sinclair

The proverbial middle child, who despite being a billionaire, lives a blue collar life as a homicide detective in Los Angeles. A criminal’s temporary insanity leaves Dante severely injured and his partner dead. Dante has major Survivor’s guilt! He goes to his un-used house in Amesport to recover, where he makes the acquaintance of Sarah Baxter, his new doctor.

Of course he is immediately drawn to her.
And of course he wants to have sex with her.
Of course!

His sexy little doctor though, turns out to be a tough nut to crack.

Sarah Baxter

A child prodigy, that never got to be a child. Boy is her mother a piece of work. She never let Sarah be a kid, so no dolls, no bike, no non-educational toys, no anything remotely fun! Her lack of understanding of general human interactions have left her feeling pretty lonely. Never fear dear lady. Dante is more than willing to show you how fun, is done!


“Sometimes I like it rough, Sarah. I think you want that, too, or you wouldn’t have asked for it.”
–Dante


The Sinclairs Series started as a story of 4 brothers, but don’t worry there always seems to be more somewhere in the family tree! No Ordinary Billionaire has a completed Read Along With Me so be sure to check that out as you read or listen.

“If a man or woman has the capability to murder, it’s already there.”
–Dante

@ Chapter 20


I should have told him. Why didn’t I tell him?
–Sarah

Because you’re a P***y!
Damn! The guy took a bullet for you!


Jared must of taken Grady up on the bet, because he wasn’t who I expected.


I have to quit moping.
–Sarah

Yes, Please! The book is almost over, damn woman!


At least they are going out with a bang!


@ Epilogue


I still don’t like that lady!


“We Sinclairs work fast when we decide we really want something,”
–Dante

He really is setting the bar quite high for his other 2 brothers.


“I think he must have his eye on a woman who isn’t easily persuaded.”
–Dante

That’s Dante setting up Jared to take the fall in the next story!


Sarah decided that sometimes madness was better than intellect.

Read Along With Me
@ Chapter 17


“Dante’s tests all came back negative,” WTF? What tests is this guy having? ‘Negative’ would imply that he ‘caught’ something.


“Then he’s back to his usual ornery self?”
–Jared


I love those little old ladies!


“I think that Elsie should break the story.”
–Sarah


Way to go Sarah!


“I hate to mention this, but you’re in a hospital. I thought . . . I guess I was worried . . . oh hell, I just wondered if you were doing all right with that”
–Emily


ooooooohhhh sexy times? Maybe!


“I’m lonely.” He flipped back the covers and scooted to the left, making room for her in the small bed. “Come sleep with me.”
–Dante


Nope! Grrr!

@ Chapter 18


Now we get smexy time!


There’s nothing worse than being obsessed with a female who’s a damn doctor!
–Dante


If Sarah doesn’t get in her own way!


@ Chapter 19


We get to meet Mara Ross, who is the main focus of the next book, and she is just so adorkably cute!


Sarah’s negative Nancy attitude about Dante is getting old. Seriously! She is missing the obvious here. Get him a job locally. The offer is out there, just help him get there already!


“We gravitate to sweet because we’re all assholes.”
–Dante


Apparently Dante likes the same denial koolaid as Sarah, but at least his is more productive.


“Saturday. Want to place a bet?”
–Grady
