Not my favorite
Bullseye: Perfect Game (2010) #1 (of 2) - Charlie Huston,Shawn Martinbrough,Tim Bradstreet

Wasn't the worst comic I've read, but I had a hard time getting into this.   I probably won't get the second issue, as I got this free from Comixology and wanted to try.   Bullseye is usually a pretty brutal read, but this just didn't delve into that as much as I'd hoped.

Her Best Shot


With college graduation looming, three childhood friends vow to make spring break their last blast of pure fun. But at least one of them didn’t count on such incredible heat…

Layla Sharpe is definitely more math ninja than bikini babe, and her future has been calculated with razor precision. Convinced to let loose over spring break, Layla is finally ready to party—until her car breaks down halfway to her destination, leaving her stranded in Georgia with a mouthwateringly hot pool shark. She knows more than enough about angles to learn the game, but this week she wants him to appreciate her curves…

Phin Marks has never met a girl like Layla. She’s more Star Wars geek than seductress, and when he offers her a place to stay while her car is in the shop, he’s counting on the attraction between them to set the nights ablaze, no strings attached. But every moment he spends with Layla makes it harder to let her go. Can he persuade her to gamble in the most dangerous way possible…on forever?

 

 

 


Her Perfect Game


Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…

Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t fight the desire that comes rushing back.

Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

 

 


Her Winning Formula


Spring break was supposed to be a last blast of fun for three friends before the reality of adulthood set in. But for the trio’s science whiz, it’s an education in instant attraction…

Chemistry major Felicity Stone can tell you everything about the way chemicals interact, but when it comes to social interaction, she needs schooling. Abandoned by her friends, Felicity is faced with spending spring break alone—unless she accepts a gorgeous stranger’s invitation to pose as his girlfriend at a family wedding. Not one to turn down a research opportunity, Felicity never expected it to produce such breathtaking results…

Teacher and baseball coach Lucas Tanner is fascinated by Felicity’s potent mix of spirit and scientist, not to mention her delicious curves. When Felicity asks him to return the favor by teaching her how to pick up guys, he can’t refuse—but he’s not at all happy with the idea of her using a formula for flirting on anyone but him. Can he convince her that together they have the perfect chemistry?

This is an anthology of 3 books and the start of the Hot @nd Nerdy series. I always recommend reading series books in order to gain full understanding and enjoyment to the book. These stories can be read as a standalone novel, as each of them are their own story.

While all 3 books are seriously fun reads, I want to concentrate with you to the first book in the anthology, if you please. This was just a fun and hot story. I found it a quick and easy read.

Layla has a lot to think about and takes a road trip to meet her best friends in Texas, for Spring Break. Her car breaks down in Georgia, and she meets a hot guy in a bar there. He wants to help her after she runs into trouble and needs to stay in town a few days.

Finn is a former gypsy and trying to figure out what he wants in life. He figures at this point, that might as well be the game of pool, and a tournament in Las Vegas. He teaches Layla how to play, and together they do well for themselves.

This ended up a fun and sexy read. The hot times are HOT! The laughter and friendship they share is fun to read also.

Review: The Perfect Game by Leslie Dana Kirby
The Perfect Game - Leslie Kirby
I love a good legal thriller so I was really excited to read The Perfect Game.  The wife of a famous baseball star is murdered.  The two main suspects are her husband, Jake, and her sister, Lauren. Jake and Lauren bond over their grief and a shared love of baseball which just complicates everything. The media takes full advantage and starts to paint Lauren as the jealous sister who wanted her sister's life.  Did Lauren really murder her sister?
 
I enjoyed this book but there were a couple of things lacking for me.  First, Lauren does some incredibly stupid things and is definitely lacking in common sense.  Why in the world would you ever start a romance with your murdered sister's husband??  Even if there's an attraction there, it's inappropriate.  As a character, she seemed very intelligent and seemed to have a good head on her shoulders so her relationship with Jake didn't seem to fit.  Then again, grief can change how a person would normally act, so there's that.  Second, I did not like the ending.  The culprit got what they deserved but the way it happened didn't sit well with me.  I didn't feel like what happened was in character for anyone involved.  I felt like the details of the ending were there more for shock value than as a real resolution. 
 
Despite those things, the book was enjoyable.  It moved along quickly and there were a couple of nice twists.  I did figure out what was going on pretty early on, but that didn't hinder my enjoyment at all. Fans of baseball will enjoy some of the scenes and conversations but those who are not fans, like myself, won't be turned off by them.  The courtroom drama is not quite on par with legal thriller authors like John Grisham but it was still very exciting and those were my favorite scenes.  
 
Overall, this was a solid read that I really enjoyed.  Exciting legal drama, murder mystery, quick pace and some interesting twists.  This is worth picking up if you enjoy the genre.

Perfect Game - Collette West

I loved Scott and Carrie's story!  If you've read the previous books, you know that Scott is a very cocky player off the field, but Carrie is the first woman he actually wants for more than just one night. I wasn't a big fan of his in previous books, he won me over in this book.  Carrie is stubborn, and once she makes up her mind about what she wants, nothing will get in her way.  Their chemistry is hot as the book begins and gets even better as their relationship progresses. They faced many roadblocks, but they did a great job at finding a way to their happy ending. I loved the behind the scenes baseball business, and there were a few unexpected changes in management - can't wait for the next book in the series! I'd also love to know more about Scott's brother Bob and Carrie's sister Alex.
