Quick read (like less than an hour). They were hot together, but it was just okay.

He is sure she doesn't belong there and after talking with her is convinced. Lily is a dietitian by trade and starting her own company delivering meals. Just what a health conscious athlete needs and Aiden not only helps out her business but soon they start a fling "just for fun" until it turns into more. Who will be ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

This was a great quick read. A nice read during lunch or just if you need a break in the afternoon. While you don't have to read the first book in the series to read this one, I would highly recommend it.

Aiden is a pitcher for the San Francisco Strikers, he doesn't do relationships especially during the season. The players believe in a Triple Play Curse. If a player falls in love, two additional players will as well o

The Triple Play Curse is now in play. Everyone knows how superstitious baseball players are. Anything out of the ordinary had them overthinking every action. Aiden is determined that the next to fall is not going to be him. He’s determined to stay focused, in shape & on point this year. So why does a nervous, awkward cocktail waitress catch his interest? Why is her so determined to helping her out so she can quit this job?

Lily is down on her luck. By miscalculating her startup expenses for

Rafe was dumb enough to start that curse and now Aiden is scared witless that he will be next. His great plan to avoid women until after the season puts him at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Lily is working at the Candy Shoppe Lounge in order to make money quick but she is a failure at waitressing and ends up spilling drinks all over a famous baseball player. When he jumps in to save her job she didn’t think he would end up saving more than that!

Lily is a good girl but maybe it is time to le

This novella is definitely swoonworthy from start to finish. I loved Aiden. He is so considerate, supportive, sexy, and smart to learn from his mistakes. Of course there is that moment you want to smack him upside the head, but when he makes the best grand gesture, it puts a smile on your face and an awe in your heart. Lily was the type of woman you could see yourself being friends with. Her goal was to make her business a success and to work her hardest to make it happen. I loved how strong a f ...more

Another short but sweet baseball novella. Aiden is nervous about meeting any women after teammate Rafe falls in love and initiates the curse. He's determined to avoid them at all costs, but that idea quickly goes down the drain after meeting Lily waitressing at a seedy bar to make ends meet until her meal delivery business picks up. He ends up signing up for her nutrition service, and gets his teammates on board too so she can quit the bar. Of course, their desire to keep things casual doesn't p ...more

Change is Good

Aiden expects his life to go one way but little did he know that spilled drinks when give him the best change to his life.

Lily is a Midwest girl that followed an old boyfriend to Cali before figuring out that she needed her own identity from what he planned.

It's kind of funny how these two meet and how they are thinking different plans. When life throws you a curveball you will either hit it or miss out on the best thing that could happen to you.

Each story has been a delight to rea

The team seems to have a “curse”, when one of the team gets engaged or married, then 3 of them have to. So far, their shortstop, Rafe has. Now, it seems it’s Aiden’s turn. When he meets Lily at a gentleman’s club, he knows that he has to get her out of there & help get her food business off the ground. Will the sparks that he feels get in the way? ...more

Another great book in this series. Loved getting to know Aiden and Lily and I really enjoyed their story. Lily fit right in with Aiden’s baseball world and friends and I liked how everything came together. Sure there was a bump or two and of course the curse didn’t help matters, but when it comes to love it will persevere. I also really liked how Aiden not only got support from Kane and Rafe but also Elise and Ashlyn as well. Totally loved the ending. I can’t wait to see who’s next and is our th ...more

This is the second novella in A Triple Play Curse Novellas and every bit as good as the first. Players on the Striker baseball team believe in the curse if one of the players becomes engaged or gets married during the baseball season, two more team players will fall. It was fun watching Aiden and Lily try hard not to fall in love with each other. The author gave me some good laughs and kept me from being able to put the book down for even a minute!

Book two in the Triple Play Curse series brings Aiden and Lily's story. He's determined not to get trapped in the curse but that all changes when he meets Lily. The author brings another fun and entertaining story with strong characters and a sweet and steamy romance. She does a great job bringing the story to life with the detailed scenes and cast of supporting characters. It's well written,moves quickly and smoothly and I enjoyed reading. I'm loving this series!

The triple play curse is in effect. Aiden Kyle swears he won't be a victim. Lily Dupree enters the picture. Aiden helps her out and they have some fun. Their romance gets more involved then Aiden wants and he balks. This is a great short story to read. You'll have to read to see if Aiden becomes victim number two. I received a copy and am voluntarily giving my review.

I loved this novella. It’s a fun and sexy read. Aiden is sure to avoid the curse, he will only have fun with Lily. No commitments. I did cry when he decides to end things. But did he make a mistake? Will she give him another chance? No worries, there’s a happy ever after. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.

I received a copy of this book through BookFunnel and I chose to review it. I enjoyed this book and I am not a big sports book fan but this one was good. It is the second in this series. These are worth your time and effort. This book is well written and I enjoyed the characters. Give it a chance. Lori Ryan is a favorite author of mine, she is great.

Aiden Kyle is the next one to fall in the Triple Play Curse. He is going to do everything he can to avoid being the next man to fall prey to this curse. Lily Dupree falls into Aiden’s life and he’s never the same. He might fight tooth and nail to keep from falling in love but in the end he has no choice! A fun, quick read which is the second in the Triple Play Curse series by this author.

Aiden is a striker and worried about The Curse, now that Rafe has initiated it.
Then he's at a strip club and Lily tips a tray of drinks on him. She's trying to keep her business going, she's started making and delivering nutritional meals.
Aiden tries very hard to ignore the chemistry between them.

A Triple Play Curse strikes again. This time is for Aiden Kyle, he try everything in his power to do not be next victim.
Nothing works, only Lily would help him to be whole again.

Wow. This book more than lives up to the first one. It is funny, hot, sweet, i could go on and on. The characters are engaging and likeable. Their chemistry, off the charts. I truly enjoyed this read and can't wait who the next victim of the curse will be.

This is such a fun, short and sizzling series. My train commute to and from work is plenty of time to finish it. Aiden is the next sportsman to fall for his perfect match. He's in denial but love is inevitable, the chemistry is hot. Loved it, off to book 3 now.

The Triple Play Curse is at it again, this time striking Aiden. He’s got it bad for Lily but has a hard time admitting he’s in love with her. Lily wants the fairy tail, married with kids, but Aiden doesn’t. This is a short, steamy read that I really enjoyed.

Lori Ryan has another hit with Game Maker. Lily and Aiden fought the curse, and they fell in love anyway. You will fall fir them too. Game Maker is a fast read that is full of emotions. Two players have their happy ending. Who will be the third? I can’t wait to find out.

Why shouldn't she just have fun with him, if that’s what she wanted? So, when Aiden turned to her and told her almost apologetically, “I can’t make any promises, Lily. I can’t give you anything permanent. Nothing down the road. No future. Just a fling for however long it lasts,” she shrugged and smiled at him.
“A fling it is, then,” she said and sucked in a deep breath before standing on tiptoes to press her mouth to his. Because she wanted more of that kiss he’d given her the other day. And, s

Short read that pulls you right in. I normally am not a fan of baseball but this book does not go into a ton of detail about the game which makes me happy.

Aiden has watched his friend fall victim to the curse and is determined not to fall also. He will avoid woman if he has to. One night at a gentlemen’s club a waitress spills a drink on him. After her boss almost fires her he steps in and feels like he has to hang out at the club every night so she does not get fired. After talking to he
