    4.5 stars! I don't think I have been quite this excited to read an anthology since... well... ever! Not only do we get tons of sports romances, but so many of my favorite authors are included in this amazing line-up! Sweeping the Series by Kate Stewart is one of the novellas I was dying for! I knew there would be some cameos from her 'Balls in Play' series and I couldn't wait! I loved Erica and Ren. Their second chance love story was full of bant...

    *****4.5 STARS*****{ARC Provided by Social Butterfly PR} SWEEPING THE SERIES by KATE STEWART *****FIVE STARS*****Even as I settled into the role I was expected to play, I didn’t play it well. I tried everything, and no part of me wanted to forget. Loving her was torture. And the realization that I was still so much in love with her, well, that was the cruelest punishment.I want to give Kate Stewart the biggest hug, and smooch and then a fist bu...

    ONE GOOD MAN BY EMMA SCOTTI was definitely surprised that this novella One Good Man took place in France in the 1970’s but it only made me more intrigued with the story and its direction. The atmosphere and ambiance was depicted in such a way that I felt I was in Paris myself.Janey and Adrian’s journey towards their true dreams led them towards one another. She wanted to capture and write important stories for newspapers and Adrian wanted to ...

    Review @ Vanilla & Spice BooksThis collection of novellas has some of my favorite authors and a couple new ones I always wanted to try. So finally I get around doing it!4.5 STARSThe End Zoneby L.J. ShenFor a very short novella, this story packs a lot of angst. I was pretty surprised at how intense it got. Sage and Jolie have been friends since they were barely teenagers. The night they became the one person they could always rely on held a lot of...

    Well DAYUM! ! Eleven authors, eleven novellas all wrapped up into one smoking hot as hell book! Where are the warning labels when you really need them huh? Yard Sale-Charleigh Rose I don’t think there’s anything I really need to say about this book if I’m being honest because my kindle caught on fire!!!!!!!! That’s pretty much self explanatory in my book but if you want a little bit more on this, then fine. It was MOTHERFUCKING HOT! I wa...

    I LOVE sports romances, and this anthology is STACKED with great authors. I don’t know what more you can ask for. Great authors writing hot sports romance novellas. Win. Win. Win.I was lucky enough to read an early version of Yard Sale by Charleigh Rose. A hot pro snowboarder and a girl visiting from out of town. Their story is meant to be a ONS, but it turns into so much more. Absolutely loved Cam and Mollie. The author does a great job combin...

    4.5 stars Full Court Press by Kennedy RyanThis woman! Why does she always do this to me? I went into this anthology thinking every story was going to be light, fun, sweet and steamy. Well, I should have known better, because Kennedy Ryan doesn't do "light." Her stories showcase something deep, something that makes you think, and above all, something that makes you FEEL. This one was no different! I literally cried...full on tears and sniffling oc...

    If there was ever an anthology that I was desperate to get my grubby little hands on… it was Team Player. So many amazing authors I would have no issue naming as my favs of all time plus I am a huge fan of sports romances… So clearly I was going to love this very talented set of authors and the novellas they created for us to devour. My Christmas just got a whole lot better. I will review each of the novella’s soon, but for now I am just go...

    4.5 'I love all the players' Stars!Holy moly, this is one hell of a sports romance anthology! I have wanted to read this since it released last December. First, I wanted to read it because of Kate Stewart (duh! you all know how much I love her!), and second also because it has stories by authors I have read before (and enjoyed!) and authors I’ve been wanting to read their work for a while. It was the perfect occasion to start and check if I lik...

    Review of One Good Man by Emma Scott I read this twice—the second time in one sitting, this morning at my laptop. Both times, it got me. Wow. What a surprise. I did not expect the feels I got from this novella. How the hell Scott put so much into 30,000 words is beyond me. This is not your typical sports romance—it’s so much more that that. 1970’s Paris. The Vietnam War. Soccer. Football. Led Zeppelin. Jefferson Airplane. White Fucking Ra...

    Team Player was absolutely fantastic. I am a sports romance junkie so basically this anthology was life. Each of the stories delivered a hot romance, spitfire banter and delicious chemistry I could not get enough of. I loved them all!My two favorites though, mentioned below in specific reviews were The End Zone by L.J. Shen and Switch Hitter by Sara Ney. The reviews are as follows:The End ZoneI absolutely (from the bottom of my heart) love the wa...

    4 ★'s♦ I only read the following novellas: ♦ Yard Sale - Charleigh Rose: 4 ★'sCamden is a friend of Asher's from Bad Habit and lives in River's Edge where he is a professional snowboarder and a player. He meets Mollie and they have a one night stand. Fast forward a few months and they both have had big changes occur.

    ***Actual rating: 3.6/5 Sporty-Hunk Stars*** *Phew* What a HUMONGOUS book this one is! Team Player: An Anthology consists of 11 novellas written by 11 well-known authors in the New Adult world. I know not everyone has read all the stories in this anthology, I’m proud to tell you that I did finish reading every single one of them (except Adriana Locke’s Cross since it’s not included in the ARC) and I can’t wait to share my opinions! I’ll...
  • Ryan - Sweet Red Reader
    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.I read Charleigh Rose's Yard Sale first and loved it. There are several cameos from characters from Bad Habit, including the male lead in this story - Camden. He's a pro snowboarder who is fully taking advantage of the life afforded to an attractive, affluent athlete - which basically means that he's a man-ho. Mollie is fresh off strep throat, an unusual breakup, and job loss and in need o...

    FIVE STARS *****If you like sports romances, or if you like balls of any kind, this Anthology is for you!This book has an all stars lineup of amazing authors, their styles are all so different but combined they created an amazing book that was sexy, entertaining and with a lot of heart.

    DNF @45%And I didn’t even get to the authors I like. This book has sat at 45% read for the last month so I think I have to admit defeat. Most of the ones I’ve read were by authors unknown to me. It went like this:3 stars3 starsDNFSkipSkipDNFThere were too many surprise babies early on. Maybe one day I’ll return to those stories in this anthology of authors I like such as Kennedy Ryan and Emma Scott but they’re near the end and I didn’t ...

    End Zone by LJ ShenThis was a sexy, fun, quick read with all the feels I get from LJ Shen. The friends-to-lovers trope has been done countless times and it's one I love. This one checked all the boxes. I devoured it in one sitting and left me smiling at the end!**I voluntary read a copy of this book provided by the author**For more reviews and blog posts.
  • MELISSA *Mel Reader*
    5 Tin Man Stars!I read Sweeping the Series by Kate Stewart. It’s a second chance romance novella that’s part of her Balls in Play series. Ren Makavoy is one of the best in the MLB. His dream has always been to play baseball for Denver, & now he’s their star catcher. He’s also a gorgeous bachelor playboy who’s getting too much negative attention off the field. All the media seems to care about lately is his personal life. The club has h...
  • Jo - *✽*•.★Reading Is My Bliss★.•*✽*
    Review - The End Game by LJ ShenThis story may be novella in length but it somehow felt like a full novel. Jolie and Sage are best friends, he is a drool worthy athlete that is never short of a girl in his bed most nights. Jolie has learnt to live with the noises that come from his room, yep they are also roomies. Neither of them have thought of each other in more than a platonic way until one awkward night when Sage sees her naked.Funny how you ...

    Team Player is a highly enjoyable sports romance anthology. This review covers Sweeping the Series by Kate Stewart, One Good Man by Emma Scott, Switch Hitter by Sara Ney, and Full Court Press by Kennedy RyanSweeping the Series by Kate StewartThis romantic comedy is about Ren, a womanizer who seems to spend more time feeding the tabloids with salacious stories than focusing on his career as a major league baseball catcher. Erica is the PR represen...

    Team Player: A Sports Romance Anthology has a bunch of short novellas within. They are all really easy and super quick reads. After the first novella, I fell in love instantly because a lot of these authors I've read previous works and I fell in love with those books as well. Plus, who doesn't love a hot steamy sports romance every now and then?Okay, so I mentioned that this book has a ton of novellas within but I didn't know this when I got the ...

    I only read Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney's short stories in this anthology, so as I read the others, my rating and review will possibly change. But these two definitely had me loving this anthology and wanting to read more.Meghan's story was entertaining and I could tell she could have easily written a whole novel. She started off like any of her other books with getting to know the characters, but she quickly moved along with texts between the help...
