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 RATING: 3.5 Beastly stars
I absolutely LOVE sports romances!!! A few years back I had my baseball phase, when I read like one baseball romance per day for a long time and reading The Game Changer I got all those feelings back!! 🙂
We don’t have baseball here in Brazil and I always need to pay a bit more attention to “get” the game. Back in the day I was pretty fast haha. But I have to say baseball players, at least in books, are my favorites!
I really liked The Game Changer. But I recommend reading the previous books before this one. Yes, it is a standanlone, but the characters from the other books are in it and it got me (and my OCD) curious about how they met too!
I really liked Sasha, the heroine. I liked Brooks too, but I connected more with her than with him. He was a bit too good for my own tastes, but it doesn’t mean I didn’t like him. I did. I love how protective of her he was and what a great friend he is!
The Game Changer is a book focused on our heroine and she is great! I could read a few more pages about them and I’d be happy, specially them interacting with the rest of the team! I missed a bit more of that.
I liked the aspects of the game in the story and the team interaction, as I mentioned, but I missed getting to know Sasha and Brooks more. I guess because they actually didn’t meet in the beginning of the book (although we get that later), I got a bit lost, but I picked it up quite quickly. Brooks has a bit of an insta-love quality to him when it comes to Sasha and since I’m not particularly keen on insta-love stories, that’s probably why I had a hard time connecting with him.
Sasha is a very mature young lady and I liked that about her. Overall I liked the story and enjoyed it, but I wish there was more interaction between them and a bit more into their story.
This is the kind of “light” book I really enjoy reading. It’s good to take our heads off the heavy stuff for a while and no better way than with a book without complications that we’ll enjoy reading.
Collette made me gasping at some parts of the book, specially towards the end! I was on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t belive what I was reading! NICE, move! I particularly enjoyed a certain video about the past!!! LOVED that! It brought the connection I missed before!
