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

Disclosure: 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 j

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

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 ...more

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

A Slightly different take on a Romeo and Juliet Romance, but with a Football Team and Set in Sin City! Sounds fun...right! Well, it is! Charlotte and Nate and HOT! The chemistry sizzles...and no, I am not talking about the Las Vegas heat...these two really have a connection, but their are some HUGE obstacles that they must face first, or it's broken heart city for this pair!

I liked this book, don't recall reading any books by this author. This is the story of Charlotte Blue who works as a trainer for the Las Vegas Slayers, a football team recently acquired by her parents. Enter Nate Franco, a trainer for the same team. His father recently lost the team to the Blue family. There's a lot of chemistry between Charlotte and Nate, even though Nate feels that her parents coerced her father to sell. Sparks fly, tempers flare until the truth comes out.

Charlotte and Nate secret romance was HOT. I did not see those turn of events as being the truth behind the lost legacy. That made me dislike Al but I also clapped because Binbi light was shown. Tem and Marshall ticked me off but Charlotte backbone was finally speaking her mind might soften their resolve. Great HEA and storyline. I can't wait for book 2 and Martha secret romance.

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

Who do you trust, yourself, your heart or the situation?

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.

This book is about two people from two families; one who currently owned Las Vegas Slayers and the other from the family who used to own the team. Sees the conflict here?

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

This was a good book but it could be better. I'm a sucker for a good romance mixed with a little bit of football. The Blue Dynasty seems like it is going to be a good series. The only problem I have and it irked my nerves the entire book is that the author seemed to have gotten the "big word syndrome" So many authors do this and it kills the story. We as readers understand that you are educated but sometimes it makes the book read like a scientific thesis instead of a romance novel. I don't like ...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

I received this book thought a Goodreads giveaway.

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.
Apr 06, 2014 SuperWendy rated it liked it
This ended up being an OK read for me. If you're looking for a family drama with some soap opera flavor, there's a lot of that going on here. However as a romance? It just didn't work for me. Not enough focus on the main couple, who spend very little time on page together. Instead the focus is on the drama, the secondary characters and setting up the series. So depending on what you're looking for? This may or may not work for you.

Characters: athletic trainer/owner's daughter, athletic trainer/previous owner's daughter
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.

DNFing at 50%.

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.

May the best man/woman win Nate Franco and Charlotte Blue are after the same job. Charlotte wants to prove her self in a mans word as well as to her family. Nate is seeking revenge for a wrong he feels has been done. Who will win or will they join forces to become a team of one.
