Review ~ MIDNIGHT PLAY by Lisa Marie Perry

Love evens the score

As general manager of the Las Vegas Slayers, Danica Blue goes toe-to-toe with players whose size is matched only by their egos. Quarterback Dex Harper is the biggest and toughest of them all, with a hell-raiser reputation that he insists he doesn't deserve. And Danica, the good daughter who's always played by the rules, is suddenly tempted to break every last one.

Football is the only thing Dex has ever been able to count on. To save his career he needs Danica's PR savvy, and he's happy to help her discover her inner bad girl in return. But glimpsing the real woman behind that sexy, flawless facade is making him realize how much is at stake. Because getting back on the team could mean losing Danica, unless he's willing to risk it all—and play for keeps….


Midnight Play was a lot different from the books that I usually read.  There was no mystery or suspense but there was plenty of drama.  In addition, there is a good amount of insight into the inner workings of an NFL franchise.  And of course, there is a generous amount of sex and romance between the main characters.

Midnight Play revolves around the lives of Danica Blue who is the General Manager of the Las Vegas Slayers and Dexter “Dex” Harper who is the former quarterback of the Las Vegas Slayers.  Danica is forced to cut Dex from the team due to his alleged association to a player scandal associated with the former owner of the team.  Danica’s mother and father are the new owners of the team.  To say that the Blues run the team with an iron fist would be an understatement.  Although they have two other daughters, Danica is their favorite daughter so she is forced to be their puppet even though she is smart and well respected.

In an attempt to rehabilitate Dex’s career, Danica offers to help Dex change his image.  As they spend more and more time together, the electricity between them intensifies.  They get closer in and outside of the bedroom.  Of course, this makes both of them re-think who they want to be and affects their future. Dex has to let his guard down and Danica has to decide if she wants to get from under her parents shadow.  Clearly, they have their happy ending but they must look deep inside themselves to really find each other.  Midnight Play is also part of a series that I have not read but I didn’t feel like I missed anything.
