Opening Day by Alexis Woods

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that was certainly a tasty little treat. Opening Day is not your typical sports romance because neither of the leads are athletes. However, their opening day activities place this novelette squarely in the sports romance genre. Add to that a healthy dose of sexy man-on-man action, well I was enjoying a little bit of heaven as I read about Aaron and Darren’s meet cute and first date. Having been dumped yet again by another arrogant bad boy, Aaron decides that he needs to take a break from dating. But Darren’s arrival as the new floating pharmacist has Aaron second guessing his hasty decision. After an incident at work has Aaron coming to Darren’s rescue, his second guessing is gone and Aaron takes a well-presented opportunity to invite a new colleague out for a bite to eat. When the night goes well, they agree to a first date over opening day for their respective baseball teams, who just happen to be playing one another the following evening. What takes place during the baseball game is a highly erotic twist on the drinking games so many fans tend to enjoy, with the guys advancing from first base to second base and clothes being shed with well-timed strikes. As expected, the sensuality increases with each baseball play until it culminates in a seriously hot grand slam. I loved the chemistry between Aaron and Darren and can easily see myself rereading Opening Day when I’m looking for a quick read that combines a little bit of sweet with a whole lotta hot. I look forward to reading Evading Exodus to see what Ms. Woods has in store for the pair.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
