Publisher's Summary

A grumpy/sunshine, rivals-to-lovers, sexy stand-alone novella from number one NYT best seller Lauren Blakely and newcomer KD Casey!

Don’t play dirty.

That’s the code I live by on and off the field.

The other?

Don’t get distracted.

Not by the media, not by hookups, and definitely not by our rival team’s ridiculously charming star player, who loves to whisper dirty nothings to me every time we play ball.

And sure, his offers are tempting, but he’s the love ‘em and leave ‘em type, and I want the real thing.

So I resist.

But the night he steals second on me in the biggest game of the year, the guy’s a whole lot harder to ignore. Especially after a filthy postgame kiss leaves me wanting all the things I can’t have.

What's the risk in playing dirty just one time?

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I have one complaint about this audiobooks.... I WANT MORE! Seriously I loved Chris & Josh. They have incredible chemistry and their banter just makes it even better. I loved that they were rivals who just couldn't help the attraction. Oh and did I mention that his story is HOT HOT HOT!!! Oh and Grant as a side character I was actually bouncing I was so happy to see him involved.
As a huge Lauren Blakely fan I knew I would love this, K.D. Casey is new to me and now she will be on my watch list for sure (hoping for some audiobook in her future)! I mean if Lauren liked her book enough to want to write with her then it must be awesome right!

The narration was perfect.... I mean JF Harding & Tim Paige of course its perfect!

Short but good

Both these narrators were new to me. Happy discoveries, both. I’ll be looking for more from each of them.

I’m already a fan of Lauren Blakely. Didn’t know KD Casey before this. The collaboration works! I will definitely keep my eyes out for a solo effort by KD.

Flirty Fun

I absolutely loved Dirty Slide by Lauren Blakely and KD Casey!! I have already listened to the audio twice and received it just days before release.day. This novella is set in the baseball world of both Lauren and KD’s baseball romance series (MM). The title, Dirty Slide, implies more than one innuendo that is for sure. These two guys really do know how to throw the innuendos/barbs at each other while discovering that they might actually have found their forever partner. The story is short and sweet(NOT) with plenty of between-the-sheets action that is HOT(insert 5 flaming emojis here). Both Tim Paige and JF Harding do an amazing job of bringing Chris and Josh to live in my mind. These guys are new to me and I loved them both. If you are fans of Lauren and/or KD or both you will enjoy this one! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. *****

5 Fun and Sexy At Bat Stars!!!

I love when I get book recommendations from favorite authors and when Lauren Blakely started teasing her readers about a debut novel that she absolutely loved, my ears perked up and then we found out that not only did she love Ms. Casey’s debut novel, they teamed up to write a novella! It’s so exciting to find new authors and now that I’ve read this new novella by these amazing women I’m excited to circle back and read Ms. Casey’s debut book.

But this review is all about Josh and Chris in Dirty Slide and fun and sexy read that had me laughing and fanning myself because these two together are fabulous. I love how they played ball for crosstown rival baseball teams and their chemistry built over several weeks and months and while there were moments of snarkiness, when they took their rivalry to the next level where they admitted their attraction, well, as they say “batter up!”

I loved every minute of this book and the narration by Tim Paige and JF Harding really brought Josh and Chris to life for me. I could feel the anxiousness of both Josh and Chris as they wondered if they dared to take the next step with each other. What that would mean for their game and their teams. But there’s also a sweetness to their budding relationship and I had a big smile on my face the entire time I listened to this book!!

I can’t wait to read and listen to more books from Ms. Casey because I think she’s a rising star!!

Flirty and Fun 🔥 Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic's Read

This quick fun and flirty story between two very sexy men was one I enjoyed very much. We have two baseball players on different teams and the media has branded them rivals. They are very far from it.

Narration was spot on for our sexy guys.

Fantastic enemies to lovers story!

Josh and Chris are two baseball players who play on rival New York teams. They’ve got that standard love/hate team rivalry going on but secretly want each other. Flirting during the games while on base. Then the infamous dirty slide occurs and ruffles Josh’s feathers and causes him to lose his cool during an interview after the World Series. Chris makes a move and Josh doesn’t quite know what to do with himself after that. No matter what they do, neither can get the other out of their heads.

They end up getting scheduled to do a photoshoot together and the photographer has them recreate their famous dirty slide and that really gets their motors humming.

Josh and Chris balance each other out with their different personalities. Chris is so over the top flirty and Josh is more reserved.

I also loved that both Grant and Zach cameo in this story, bringing both author's stories together.

I fell in love with J.F. Harding in this book as Josh. I need more of this guy. He was the perfect serious and broody Josh to Tim Paige’s playful and flirty Chris.

Dirty Slide

Deliciously dirty, I loved it!
I completely smiled throughout the whole book. I really enjoyed these characters that connection and heat between these two is explosive. This my friends is why I love romance so much that feel good book that just gives you all the feels.
It is a hit these two authors need to do more together because I need it, not just want it but it’s a need.

Fantastic narration both narrators were perfect for these characters I need more JF Harding in my MM, Tim Paige is always great.

Sparks will fly 👌

Lauren Blakely is a one-click Author, so I was excited to see that she teamed up with KD Casey, who is a new Author for me. That screams of potential, and I was not disappointed! Chris and Josh hit the ground running with the truly excellent flirty banter all the way from 2nd base to the parking lot and beyond. There is a definite chemistry pulling them together, but their personalities are very different. Chris is an outgoing media darling, whereas Josh is more reserved. Their differences might start out with a bit of rivalry, but they really do complement each other and I thoroughly enjoyed that journey from beginning to end. This book is sex-positive awesomeness with two men who know what they want/need and eventually drop their guard and communicate. Once they let go and embraced their undeniable attraction the sparks fly and the dirty-dirty awesomeness when they are together will burn you to the ground! Chris and Josh will take you places…all the wonderful places!

Tim Paige and JF Harding are both excellent performers and I really enjoyed this book. I’m narrator motivated and devoured this novella today with pleasure!

I received an #AdvancedListenerCopy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Such a great listen!

This was such a great novella! I love baseball romances, and this was another amazing story. Both narrators were new to me, and they were so good! Even though I would have loved to spend a lot more time with Chris and Josh, the novella never felt rushed or insta-lusty to me. I hope Lauren Blakely and KD Casey will write more (and longer) books together, I’m first in line to read them!
