Review + Giveaway: Game Changer by Collette West

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.


~Review by Elyssa~
I love baseball, guys. Like, I love baseball. I would marry it, if I could. And frankly, baseball players are at the top of my list for hottest guys on the face of this earth (bonus points for nerdy baseball players). So naturally, I was pretty excited to read Game Changer. But it exceeded my expectations so far above and beyond what I expected that I am rating it FIVE LEAVES!
Here’s the thing—if what you want is a big romantic pay-off that includes a deliciously explicit sex scene that lights your nerves on fire, this isn’t going to be your cup of tea. Things get steamy, but they’re a sidebar to the rest of the story. In fact, if you don’t like baseball this isn’t going to be your cup of tea, either. But if you love big-hearted stories about overcoming the odds and falling in love and endings like Field of Dreams or Angels in the Outfield then you are going to love this book just as much as I did.
Brooks and his best friend Kyle play for the professional baseball team the New York Kings. When tragedy hits, Sasha, Kyle’s younger sister, literally steps up to the plate to save the day. But as long-simmering romance starts bubbling to the surface, will the re-emerging romance between Brooks and Sasha threaten the team’s chances to make it to the World Series?
I can’t tell you that, but I can tell you that I cried big, happy, sappy tears at the end (I have not cried like that since I finished watching Field of Dreams for the first time and Kevin Costner asks his dad if he wants to “have a catch”).
Read this book as soon as you can get your hands on it, Fallers. You won’t be disappointed.

  ~About the 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
She is the author of NIGHT GAMES and GAME CHANGER
