Sex. Rules of the game: play hard, play to win, and play with a passion for the game, never for the woman. In a world where lust is a spectator sport, Brian Byrne is the undisputed champion. He is every woman’s fantasy, his face and form recognized on the farthest planet, his you-can-touch-my-body-but-never-my-heart attitude a challenge no female can resist. So why does he feel burned out, used up, and in desperate need of a long vacation to a simpler time?

Ally O’Neill–American tourist, divorcee, and author of a best-selling series on how to be the perfect wife–is that rarity Brian has never before encountered: a woman who wants no part of him. Before he knows it, her hands-off approach has him eager to break his contract’s off-season no sex clause. In a world where no one has even heard of the Testosterone Titans, Brian is about to discover that scoring is a lot less fun than falling in love.

My Thoughts 
Night Games is written by Nina Bangs, and I had such a fun time reading this. It was such a fun and witty romance, that I never stopped laughing. Night Games is a bit different than some of the other books that I have read from her, definitely has a humorous ring to romance if there ever was one. Night Games is a very enthralling and sensual read, one that will heat up the room like matchsticks.  There was one problem that I had with this book, was that Ally was so gullible at times, she just accepted that Brian was from the future, so easily, that it didn’t seem real especially at the beginning of the story, however as the story progressed, it started to become more realistic, and the story became captivating and riveting, that I started to fall in love with it. So overall a humorous and enjoyable read!!!

My Favorite Quote 
As she watched, the amusement changed to something else. Something hot, hungry. Dangerous. 
“You tempt me greatly, woman”
