Review and Giveaway: Game Changer by Collette West

Game ChangerPublisher: Self
Pages: 261 pages
Genre: Romance/Contemporary/Sports

Summary:

Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davison is tearing it up as the latest shortstop for the New York Kings, despite his tendency to blush whenever girls scream his name.

When a health scare forces his best friend, Kyle Roberts, off the team, no one can stomach the thought of replacing him, especially so close to the playoffs.

Until Kyle's sister, Sasha, steps in, convincing management to let her take his place. The idea of signing the first female player in Major League history proves too tempting for the Kings to resist.

Nevertheless, Brooks doesn't want any part of it. Sasha is Kyle's little sister, not some sideshow.

Yet when Kyle takes a turn for the worse, Brooks promises to do everything in his power to help Sasha win a championship for him. Because there's no way he's letting either of them down. Not now, not ever.

My Review:

Intro: I’m on a bit of a sports romance kick right now. I don’t even know why. Athletes don’t really appeal to me. Perhaps it is the propensity towards rakitude that some athletes have. But I really did enjoy this book.

Characters:

Heroine: Sasha-I liked her. I am still in the midst of my heroine slump so finding a heroine that does not annoy me was quite the victory. I liked that she was athletic and strong.

Hero: Brooks-I really loved Brooks. He was a loyal friend to Kyle which I greatly appreciated. He was a sweet, good guy. He did have a bit of a slightly rakish edge to him.

Chemistry: I loved Brooks and Sasha together. They were sweet with a tiny bit of angst. And I do love the angst. It was a really interesting dynamic with Brooks’ friendship with Sasha’s brother Kyle. His loyalty to Kyle versus his feelings for Sasha was quite interesting.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really did like this one. I didn’t quite breeze through it but it never lost my attention. I loved the chemistry between Brooks and Sasha and, of course, I loved the sports.

Author Info
Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball's biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette's impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.
Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she's not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at collette_west@yahoo.com
She is the author of NIGHT GAMES and GAME CHANGER.
