  Review By Gia:
Team Player 2 has short stories from Ella Fox, Mandi Beck, Teagan Hunter, Ilsa Madden-Mills, Sara Ney, Rochelle Paige, Meghan Quinn, Charleigh Rose, Kennedy Ryan, Emma Scott, and Kate Stewart.  If you like sport romances then this anthology is for you.  
My plan is to read all of the stories included in this anthology but I'm going to jump around and read the author I have read before first.  
The first one I read was The Guy in the Middle (Fair Catch) by Kate Stewart.  If you read The Guy on the Right then you know Lance.  If you haven't read The Guy on the Right, no worries you don't need to read it to love this one.  I was totally engrossed in Lance and Harper's story.  Their story has funny parts but also has heart string pulling parts.   Their story doesn't end in the anthology.  We are left hanging and have to wait for their full story to come  out. 
Arena Lights by Mandi Beck was my next read.  Meave and Millie are twin college softball players.  Their brother, Levi, is a hockey player who makes sure his teammates know his sisters are off limits.  Meave and Millie are off for a two week softball clinic where Millie plans to have fun without her brother or his teammates watching out for them but Levi's teammate Benny is going on the trip.  Off the twins, Meave seems to be the  focused mellow one.  Millie is wild trouble maker.  Benny isn't looking to get into trouble by hooking up with either of the twins but he and Meave have a connection.  I loved their interaction with each other.  This one is a really cute read.  
 I have only read for story is this book but so far Body Heat by Rochelle Paige is my favorite.  I loved everything about this story.   Sera works at a private security company.   She tough and strong but still has a sweet side.  Before she meets her new client she's not excited to be working with an athlete after the last one.  When she meets Rowan, there is a connection there.   I love how she try to keep their interaction all business but their connection to too strong.  Rowan is a great character too.  He's strong and sweet all wrapped up in one. 
The last one I read was The Strike Out by Meghan Quinn.  If you read The Locker Room or The Dugout then you have met Holt.  I was excited to see he was getting a story.  I loved reading this one but warned that it's not his whole story and we have to wait for more to see how it all turns out.   
4 Stars!

About Mandi Beck:
Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

About Rochelle Paige:
I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will. When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.
I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, "About time!"
