I’m the crazy fun one.
Pedal to the floor, balls to the wall, party all weekend guy.
The guy everybody calls for laughs and a good time.
And I always deliver.

So, when Ainsley Winslow and I made a pact for a summer fling, I was all in.
What hot-blooded college male doesn’t jump at the chance for a no strings attached relationship? Not this one.

Then summer drew to a close, a

I just wasn't interested enough to continue. They seem to already have had their summer fling and this story starts when they are reunited in the fall. They already have developed their feelings, and I can never fully feel the connection between characters when we don't experience that development happening.

Personal preference, I'm sure...

Brax and Ainsley’s story had me hooked from beginning to end! Extra Innings is the second book in the Infield Series by Michelle Lynn but can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

After a hot and sexy summer fling, Ainsley has left Brax high and dry, and now that their paths have crossed again he will do anything to find out why she broke everything off, even though they agreed to just the summer. Brax is relentless with his pursuit of Ainsley and I thought

4.5 stars!!

When we met Brax in Rounding Third, I fell in love with him! I was so happy he had a story coming. He's the fun one who doesn't have a care in the world, but as we get more into his story, we see that is not the case. He had a summer fling with Ainsley and she broke it off with no explanation or anything. Brax is one determined individual. Months later their paths cross and he is determined to have another chance with her.

What I loved about her is she was very focused on school and c

Michelle Lynn's Extra Innings tells a truly moving story featuring two college students on two different paths who come together and forge a remarkably strong, heart-stopping connection over the course of a summer that burned hotly, fizzled out and then reignited when a second chance presented itself!

This sports romance about an up and coming baseball player and an aspiring medical school student hit me hard, fast and deep with the fury of a fast ball straight to the gut!!! Brax and Ainsley's od

“I’ll prove my worth to you. No matter how long it takes.”

If you were to ask me what some my favorite books were—brave soul—I can guarantee you that one of Michelle Lynn’s books would be on that list.

But which one? I love her words, I love the way she makes me feel, I love that she can break me down and put me back together within the space of a couple of hundred pages. It could be my first from her, Collaboration, or one of the beautiful Love Surfaced books. Perhaps Rounding Third, the first

Ainsley Winslow has had a ton of responsibility thrown on her after her underage brother only has her She works her behind off paying bills, feeding them, and trying to get the best grades in college she can, in order to get into the best medical school. That doesn't leave a whole lot of time for boys, especially boys who play baseball, as her heart was ripped out by one. So when she meets the hot, and talented, Braxton Brentwood, she decides to spend one hot summer with him, and they would go t ...more

Michelle Lynn is one of my go to authors but add in hot baseball guy, hello hook me up.

We met Brax in Rounding Third and learned the back story but I still feel you could read Extra Innings without being totally lost. Brax is struggling between signing up for the draft now or finishing his last year of school first. His heart tells him life it too short and this is his dream, his dad is telling him to finish school first so he has something to fall back on

Title: Extra Innings
Author: Michelle Lynn
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Rating: 4/5

From what I gather this is the second book of the series but can be read as a standalone which is the way I've read it as it's my first book by this particular author, I do love a good sports romance normally it's hockey for me so with the hero being a baseball player this was a nice change.

I really enjoyed this it had a great storyline with great characters based

** Received ARC in exchange for honest review **

This is a good, quick read about college and baseball. A nicely written story with Brax and Ainsley being the main focus. Upon reading a few other reviews, I discovered there is a book before this that I did not read. This is a standalone book and you don't have to read the first one (Rounding Third - I think) but it might be a good idea as I understand Braxton is in that book as well. Either way, you will enjoy this story and it is worth reading.

A bit of a disappointment -- too much like so many others with nothing new to offer. I do like a good sports-related romance though. Lynn writes well and her characters are perfectly constructed, so no complaints in that category.

I haven't read a Michelle Lynn title in quite some time. The cover and blurb for Extra Innings is what drew me in. Because I love me a hot cover and a sports romance too. However, it was Ainsley that kept me reading.

I adored her. She is so loyal and fiercely protective. Of her family. Her work. But a summer fling with the school's star ballplayer, Brax, left her more shook up than she card to admit. Oh that Brax! This athlete was complex, deep and oh so sexy. He is dedicated to his team, his fam

I first met Brax and Ainsley in Rounding Third and now they have their own book which I think they stole home from Crosby and Ella. It was a well paced book with enough backstory not to keep you confused but not so much that you are bored. Brax is the go-to guy, the life of the party. Ainsley is the responsible one, the person who her younger brother relies on. But when the two are together, it seems like the rest of the world fades away for them. They were perfect together. It was a fun read an ...more

I'm in love with the series! As with the first book I could not get enough of this one. Brax and Ainsley were so stinking cute. I absolutely enjoyed their story. I hope we get to read Ollie's story next. You can bet ill be one clicking it.

This author is so addicting!

I can truly say that this author captures my soul each time I read her stories. Brad & Ainsley are the perfect go getter couple who remind you of what true love and dedication is.

Possibly even better than #1

I was skeptical that this one could live up to Crosby’s story. I really wanted to love Brax but like most girls with book boyfriend crushes, I was scared.

Okay, okay, but seriously.... it was incredible. I loved this. The plots and characters were on point. There were twists you won’t see coming which it my favorite way for books to go. When you can’t figure out what’s going to happen before it does, those are the good stories! Read this!!

I love this author and her fabulous book men she creates for us readers!

I enjoyed Brax and Ainsley in this book! I adored their friends and getting them to meddle in the mix was amazing too!

If you're a romance reader who loves sports this is the book for you!

3.5 stars from me!!!

After reading Round Third I couldn't wait to read Braxton's story, so when I finally got my hands on Extra Innings I was so excited I did a little happy dance.

As soon as I picked it up I couldn't put it down and I really didn't want to. With each passing page I fell harder and harder for Brax and Ainsley. Their connection is intense and all encompassing. Even when they try to fight it, they just can't seem to stay away. On their own they are strong individuals, but together they are force of nat

3.5 - 4 Stars

I was so happy Brax got a book. I was a fan when he was introduced in Rounding Third.

The story pulled me in right from the beginning....when Ainsley and Brax meet. But then it skips forward and you find out they're no longer seeing each other. So they basically work their way. Slowly. Back together. I missed seeing the relationship they shared over the summer. I wish there were some flash backs.

Overall, it was a good read. I'm a sucker for sports romance books, so of course I was

I honestly didn't think I could love any couple more than Crosby and Ella-but Michelle Lynn has surely proven me wrong. This book is absolutely a solid 5 star read! This isn't just a sweet, hot, hilarious sports romance-it's the story of two very different people coming together to realize that it's okay to depend on one another. Ainsley Winslow, orphaned, works her butt off to take care of herself and her brother. She finds herself giving the campus playboy a summer of hookups to let some of he ...more
