Intro: I am not a big baseball but I love sports romance of any kind and I loved Collette West’s previous book so this one was kind of right up my alley. The only problem is that whenever I tried to read the book or write the review I had this staring at me:
His name’s Rambo and we rescued him a couple of months ago. Saying no to that face is near impossible. And the man wants to play fetch so that's what he gets.
Heroine: Hailey-I really liked her. She was just so refreshingly normal. I did have moments when I wanted to give her a good scold but I also had those feelings about Jilly so it was not a big deal at all.
Hero: Jilly-I liked him as well. I love that he was a genuinely good dude. Sweet and shy in spite of his intimidating appearance. Not the typical sports star type of hero. I really loved reading his point of view. I really did make a connection to him and you can tell how much he loves Hailey.
Chemistry: I absolutely loved Jilly and Hailey together. They frustrated me a bit, I have to admit but there was something so completely pure and sweet about them that I couldn’t not love them. I also loved the reunited lovers plotline.
Conclusion: I loved this book. It took me a bit to get into it though but that was dog distraction—he’s new, he doesn’t know better. Collette West is quickly becoming one of my favorite sports romance authors.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
She is the author of NIGHT GAMES, GAME CHANGER and GAME ON.
