Training the Las Vegas Flyers by day, sampling Sin City’s delights by night, Nate Franco’s life is one to envy. But one hot nightclub encounter could change all that.

Night Games Lisa Marie Perry
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I was hoping for some excitement here, having enjoyed a couple of sports related romances recently. I didn't really get that though. I found it quite confusing working how who was who, and how they were related. Initially there were lots of abbreviations for characters roles too that I had to keep working out what they meant. I've recently read and loved the fabulous Shredded -Tracy Wolff and though that was full of unfamiliar sn ...more

A chance meeting between the two of them prior to them knowing each other sets off a chain of events that ends in dec ...more
Perry is introducing a new series for readers The Blue Dynasty and Night Games is the first book in the series. Introductions are tough because they have to be such that readers want a return interaction with the characters. Or a vested interest in what will happen next. After reading Night Games
this reader is definitely ready for Book Two Midnight Play.
Ms.Perry did a wonderful job sharing Nate and Charlotte’s story. His family the previous ...more

I would give it 3.5 stars.
It was a quick, steamy and pleasant read.
I definitely enjoyed reading everything that Lottie goes through. She is quite the female, especially taking on such a male dominated profession, who isn't afraid to tackle and handle the football players for playing dirty and are verbally abusive. The interactions between her, her parents and other people are quite interesting. Great that she finally stood up to her parents and their unusua ...more
The book had a good concept with the main characters having a similar situation in their lives. I liked the way everything worked out in the end though.
For me I had a really hard time getting into the book. There were too many "Brand" name dropping and at time it was to descriptive with too much back story to the situation. will say that the book kept me hooked so that I am wanting to read the next book to know more about the next character in more d ...more
Night Games was a fun, juicy read. Lottie and Nate's romance was exciting to watch develop, and the feuding families added another dimension to the story. The relationship betweem Lottie and Joey, as well as the different family dynamics between the Blue's was very entertaining and added some great complexity to the plot. This was a great start to the Dynasty series.
World Building: football training camp
Plot: real story behind ownership change, revenge, trust
Sex: euphemistic and somewhat offstage
Read another: Probably
I'd like to know what happens to the characters, but the plot and sex took a backseat.
I made it to the 50% mark and the hero and heroine have barely spent any time together. They are on opposing sides of football management - so I get they are kind of enemies but I'm bored they aren't together yet.
There is a lot of time spent setting everything up and stuff - just don't like the flow of this one.
