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. She is the author of the New York Kings series which includes: GAME CHANGER, GAME ON, PERFECT GAME, INSIDE GAME and GAME WINNER and the Stockton Beavers series which includes: SINGLE.

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.

The book is very well written and it draws the reader in. Sasha is the star of this story, this girl is fearless and becomes an icon. Brooks is the man of her dreams and she has been in love with him since she can remember, she thought for sure that he felt the same when they were in Jamaica for a wedding. What Sasha wasn't expecting that Brooks would disappear and not contact her for over a year.
Then one night her phone rings and her life is turned upside down. He brother, Brooks' best friend is facing the fight of his life. Brooks calls Sasha to explain the situation and he is excited to see her again. He is absolutely crazy for this girl and his goal in life is to have her in his life FOREVER. The only problem?

The book is about Sasha taking over her Kyle's position as the second baseman of the New York Kings. In her journey she grows closer to Brooks and she learns so much about herself, the man she loves, her family and the importance of life.
I highly suggest that you pic up this book and go an a beautiful journey of a love that is meant to be, a love that is real, pure and worth having.
