Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davidson 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 healths care 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 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.
Game Changer is a refreshing new take on the genre of sports romance. Baseball is the all American game, the boys club. Well this boys club just got a new member in the form of a pretty little lady named Sasha. Sasha grew up playing softball, she has skills, but enough to skills to make it with the big boys? Her goal, make the team and survive the season through the playoffs, hopefully holding her brother's spot available for when/if he is able to return to the game.
Brooks is her brothers best friend, she's had a crush on him her entire life, but to Brooks she's always been the little sister... or has she? Brooks started having feelings for Sasha after spending time with her at her brother's wedding, but when his BFF gives him strict orders to stay away from his little sister, this good ole' boy does as he is told.. well he tries to anyway.
When Kyle gets sick and Sasha comes up with this crazy plan to play for the Kings, Brooks unconditionally supports her, but the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to fight his feelings and keep his promise to his friend and to complicate matters, now that Sasha is his teammate the prospect of a relationship is even slimmer.
I loved Brooks and Sasha. Brooks is not your typical womanizing professional baseball player, he comes across as sweet and caring. Sasha is such a likable heroine, she puts her life on hold to do something unconditionally for her brother. The building chemistry between these two is palpable and I for one couldn't wait to see where their story would lead. I love a good sports romance and Game Changer was even better than I expected. I am giving Game Changer 4.5 STARS and I can't wait to see where this author goes next.

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 of the written word were installed 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 fan girl 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 Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
