    I was given an advance copy of the ebook in return for a fair and honest review.

    This is a Romeo-and-Juliet, families-that-hate-each-other romance. The heroine, Charlotte Blue, works for her parents, the new owners of Las Vegas Slayers; the hero, Nate Franco, is from the family that used to own the team.

    I was given an advance copy of the ebook in return for a fair and honest review.

    This is a Romeo-and-Juliet, families-that-hate-each-other romance. The heroine, Charlotte Blue, works for her parents, the new owners of Las Vegas Slayers; the hero, Nate Franco, is from the family that used to own the team. She's got a lot to prove, as a female trainer and as the daughter of the owners (who cut her NO slack, but the rest of the world doesn't see it that way). He's wary about losing his job, convinced the new owners forced his father to sell up, and fiercely loyal to his brother (a former football player, now injured), who feels done out his legacy by the sale of the team.

    Got that? Good.

    At its core, this is a book about loyalty: both Charlotte and Nate are loyal to their families to a degree that's interfered with their ability to be loyal to themselves and to their own desires. This is made particularly heart wrenching by the fact that the families, arguably, don't deserve that level of devotion: Nate's father has made his own problems, and Charlotte's parents spend a lot more time worrying about how she affects the family "image" than they do about what the family image is doing to their daughters. The sexual attraction--and growing romance--between Nate and Charlotte is the catalyst for each of them to set aside a little of that family loyalty in favour of forging their own path.

    I usually hate it when I can tell a book is setting itself up for sequels. Show me a romance with a heroine with sisters and I opt out more often than not. But in this case Charlotte's sisters--Martha, who hasn't quite grown up and is self-aware about how she never will while the family controls her, and Danica, who has already made the decision to try to be the "perfect daughter" even when it looks like that might mean throwing Charlotte under a bus--are compelling enough that I would actually read their stories.

    Even the villainess of the book, Nate's almost-stepmother, is sympathetic underneath the conniving and slinking. She's been cut off by her family, and is painfully, apprehensively aware that her physical assets have a limited shelf life, and so she'll do whatever she has to in order to survive and secure her engagement to Nate's father. I ended up feeling sorry for her, and almost admiring her (hey, at least she goes down fighting).

    The only characters I couldn't warm to at ALL were Charlotte's parents. Holy Hell, they were cold (though they never turned into cartoon villains; success-driven, image-obsessed parents are all too believable). The final confrontation between them and Nate was a glorious moment. Charlotte's own showdown with them was even better.

    A longer, more spoiler-ish review can be found on my blog:

    Well, first, just let me say that I LOVED this book! It pulled me in pretty quickly and I loved the entire thing. I loved the fact that this was a different type of romance and I also really loved the fact that this was a book about a woman trying to make it in a man's sport and even though the odds were against her in so many ways she wasn't going to give up because that was her dream and she was determined to follow it! I always loved to play sports when I was younger and usually had my brothe

    Well, first, just let me say that I LOVED this book! It pulled me in pretty quickly and I loved the entire thing. I loved the fact that this was a different type of romance and I also really loved the fact that this was a book about a woman trying to make it in a man's sport and even though the odds were against her in so many ways she wasn't going to give up because that was her dream and she was determined to follow it! I always loved to play sports when I was younger and usually had my brother and his friends looking down on my skills because I was a girl, and so I can relate to the determination that is required to ignore the sneers etc and keep going because it's what you love to do. I also really enjoyed the fact that despite what either of the two main characters were taught to believe and the struggles they had to deal with, with their families included, they were able to over come it with each other and with their lives. I love that it's a story about things that really do happen in real life and struggles that alot of people do in fact have to deal with. It shows that even though life can be good, it is also a struggle and if you work hard, you can over come the tough obstacles.

    I will definitely be reading more of Lisa Marie Perry's books. And I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends who read! :)

    I had the pleasure of being asked by new Kimani author, Lisa Marie Perry, to read and review her debut novel “Night Games.”

    Charlotte Blue wanted to prove to her parents that she could make a name for herself in the world of football. She was hired as the assistant trainer for the Las Vegas Slayers Football Team, a team owned by her parents Marshall and Temperance Blue. Because her parents were the owners, media and others viewed Charlotte’s hiring as nepotism. Charlotte set out to prove that she

    I had the pleasure of being asked by new Kimani author, Lisa Marie Perry, to read and review her debut novel “Night Games.”

    Charlotte Blue wanted to prove to her parents that she could make a name for herself in the world of football. She was hired as the assistant trainer for the Las Vegas Slayers Football Team, a team owned by her parents Marshall and Temperance Blue. Because her parents were the owners, media and others viewed Charlotte’s hiring as nepotism. Charlotte set out to prove that she was hired on her own merit.

    Nate Franco’s father Al was the previous owner of the Las Vegas Slayers. Nate felt his father was pressured to sell the team to Charlotte’s parents. While working as a trainer and vying to find out what really happen with the team’s ownership, love between Charlotte and Nate slowly crept in.

    This is the second football romance story I have read where the heroine of the book plays a major role in a male dominated profession. Night Games was well written and the character development for Charlotte was very strong. You could feel the chemistry between Charlotte and Nate throughout the book. Although their love for each was forbidden, they were determined to make their relationship work. I admired Nate's commitment to Charlotte and his dedication to protecting her.

    I am truly looking forward to reading Danica and Martha’s stories and the continuation of the Blue Dynasty series. Good job Lisa!

    This is my first read by Perry. I am honored that she offered me the chance to review her book before it went live today. I can say this, I do want to see more of the Blue Dynasty. A family of women making their mark on a male dominated field has me cheering them on and looking for how they do the next big step.

    Charlotte Blue has worked very hard to show that she can be a force to reckon with in the field of her choice. She lets nothing stand in her way not even an over ambitious ex, that felt he had the power by giving her an ultimatum. This is a tactic that does not work well for the issuer of such.

    Charlotte has an uphill battle to get and maintain her dream job regardless of the fact that her family (parents) are the new owners of the Las Vegas Slayers. Her parents are not very parent-ly with love or complements.

    Not the kind of book I typically read but I really enjoyed it. This isn't just some romance story with little to no story involved. This book had a story.

    Nate is one of the trainers for the NFL Las Vegas Slayers. He is also the son of the owner of the team. His father sells the franchise to the Blue family. Charlotte Blue is also on tap to be a trainer for the team.

    Before all this can happen Charlotte and Nate hook up in a bar without knowing who each other are. Nate and Charlotte then meet at

    Before all this can happen Charlotte and Nate hook up in a bar without knowing who each other are. Nate and Charlotte then meet at training camp to the surprise of both. Nate wants to keep his job but isn't happy with the Blue family for taking away what he views as his family's franchise. Not really the ending I expected which is good.

    Quick read with a good story. I will probably see what else happens with the Blue family.
