Extra Innings by Michelle Lynn

An Infield Novel

Genre: Standalone New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Perfect Pear Creative Covers

Release Date: April 10, 2017


Michelle Lynn’s Extra Innings tells a truly moving story featuring two college students on two different paths who come together and forge a remarkably strong, heart-stopping connection over the course of a summer that burned hotly, fizzled out and then reignited when a second chance presented itself!

This sports romance about an up and coming baseball player and an aspiring medical school student hit me hard, fast and deep with the fury of a fast ball straight to the gut!!! Brax and Ainsley’s odyssey inspired me to reach for the stars and deeply affected my viewpoint on working hard to achieve dreams, earning trust and opening oneself up to love in spite of life’s hardships.

I LOVED Brax and Ainsley’s focus as they strove to meet their goals, especially when Brax decided to fight for Ainsley in spite of her initial efforts to thwart his efforts to reconcile each and every step of the way.  Michelle Lynn tells a powerful tale about discovering passion, finding love and experiencing heart-breaking loss!! This is also a story about stepping up to the plate when it comes to taking on responsibility and discovering a level of personal strength and individual resilience that left me breathless!

YES, I thoroughly enjoyed Extra Innings, and not just because of the blazing-hot, searing heat that Brax and Ainsley exude in their physical relationship (although I admit that this was a HUGE bonus that earned this book extra credit points)! 😍

Extra Innings is one of those books that has all of the deep-seated, profound FEELS that will leave you smiling and content once you are done reading it!! You will root for both of these characters as they pave a path towards love at the same time that they work hard on the field and in the classroom.

If you want to read a lovely, feel-good sports romance that will warm your heart and make your soul do a little happy dance then Extra Innings is definitely one to keep on your radar!

So read it!

That is this Naughty Girl’s final word.

Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars! Michelle Lynn hit a major home run with this one!

Heat: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 /5 flames for Brax and Ainsley’s bedroom contact plays!!!! 😉



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.
