New Release: Extra Innings by Michelle Lynn

Extra Innings by Michelle Lynn
An Infield Novel
Genre: Standalone New Adult Romance
Release Date: April 10, 2017


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, and I found myself wanting time to move slower. Ainsley Winslow is a girl of her word. When fall inevitably came, she vanished.

She no longer answered my calls, my texts or my knocks on her door. After the silence continued, I questioned what I was doing and who had I become. I am Braxton Brentwood…this isn’t me. Time to move on and get the party started again. And I did.

Until our paths crossed again, and I remembered what we had. She wasn’t getting away a second time because our game just went into Extra Innings.

Review by Jen Skewes
I really loved this book.  We first met Brax in Rounding Third and given his past I was really looking forward to his story.  Michelle Lynn quickly became one of my favorite authors a few years ago after reading Collaboration and since then I have read everything that she has written.  I love her writing, and the characters she creates.  I always like that her books are sweet and sexy with just the right amount of drama and angst.  And this one was no different.

Brax is the captain of his baseball team and his biggest decision right now is whether or not he should enter the draft or wait until after his final year of college.  Baseball is his passion and it has been his dream to play in the major leagues.  While his is great ball player he is also great with the ladies.  He is the epitome of a ladies man, living the lifestyle of the college baseball player who could turn pro, so of course when he walks into a room the guys want to be him and the ladies want to be in his bed.  While he loves the attention he gets from these girls, they are nothing more than a one night stand.  He is not the relationship kind of guy and loves living the life he is currently living.  Until he meets Ainsley, the one girl who could make him want it all. 

Ainsley is pre-med and her studies are what's most important to her.  She has taken on the role of mother to her younger brother who is in high school.  Her main focus is school and providing for them.  When she meets Brax she knows that she shouldn’t feel anything for him.  She does not need a love life right now and being a baseball player also turns her off.  But maybe Brax is different or maybe they can have a no strings attach fling and have some fun in the summer.  That is exactly what they do and when the summer ends so does their relationship.

It is months later an these two are brought together again.  Brax knows what he wants.  Letting Ainsley go in the first place was a mistake.  He is not going to let this second chance with Ainsley slip away.  He will do what it takes to prove to her that they are meant to be. 

Ainsley is not so sure that things will work out with Brax.  She is scared to death to go there with him but she slowly gives into him.  Not being able to control her feelings, even though her fears and insecurities may get in the way.  Can Brax prove to her that the belong together, that despite their passion and their dreams they can make it work?

I really loved Brax and Ainsley together. He is just one of those swoon worthy men that you cannot help but love.  Yes he was a ladies man but maybe given his past, there was a reason for that.  Maybe it also took the right woman to open him up to love.  I always love seeing a playboy find that woman who helps him to open up his heart fall in love.   I love that you get to see the true man behind the playboy exterior.  Brax truly is a man with a heart.

I loved that we get to the see Ella and Crosby from the first book and it warmed my heart so see how the three of them still had that strong bond.  But it was also the friendship that Ella formed with Ainsely that I loved.  The supporting characters also played an intricate part in this story.   I am hoping that we see more of Ainsley brother and cousin in the future and more of the sexy baseball players.  Extra Innings, was a fun, sweet and sexy read.  It’s just one of those love stories that make you feel good, the kind where you feel the love and passion between the characters.  It is a great story about love and friendship.  Another fantastic job by Ms. Lynn
