With the Band Synopsis
 
Texas Knight is daughter of the word’s biggest rock star, Mark Knight. Kitt Daniels is lead singer in the hottest up-and-coming band, Filthy Sound. Mark has mentored Filthy Sound from the beginning, seeing their potential, and now he’s supporting them on their first worldwide tour. She’s off-limits. He can’t help himself.
 
  Exclusive Excerpt:
 
My dad gave a lot of warnings about any member of Filthy Sound messing around with me, and he was very graphic as he went into the consequences if that were to happen. Kitt is quite clearly choosing to ignore that because, right now, he’s breaking Dad’s rules big time. Again. Kitt’s Adam’s apple bobs as he swallows hard. “You’re different.” He makes me feel different, too, like I’m not just another woman to mess around with, like I’m special. Sometimes. Then, there are many, many occasions when he makes me feel like I’m falling into a bottomless black hole. At this moment, I feel like there’s no one else. I don’t want to hide my body away. He wants to see me, and I want him to as well. “How am I different?” I ask. “You’re not a game I’m playing, Tex.” Well, that’s good to hear. If he were just pushing the limits with me because he had a problem with following the rules, I’d lose it. “Then, what are you doing? Because this definitely wouldn’t be okay with my dad.” “I’m not looking to strip for your dad. Right now, I only care about what you think…what you want.” “You’re asking what I want?” Best to not go there. “Are you going to regret this in the morning, Kitt?” “Regret? No. Will I feel guilty as hell when I look him in the eyes tomorrow? Yes. But remembering one major detail makes it easier.” “What’s that?” “You’re an adult, and you’ll never be a one-night stand.” Bloody hell. My lungs deflate—in a good way. If we did this, it’d be the start of something. It’s dangerous to think about more with him. It could end so badly for me. I should be smart and think it through. But I can’t. When I’m around him, there is no thinking, no logic, and no consequences. It’s a bad combination, and I know I should stop. But with Kitt, I can never stop.

REVIEW TOUR - GAME CHANGER by COLLETTE WEST



Title: Game Changer
Series: New York Kings #1
Author: Collette West
Genre: Sports Romance (18+)
Published: July 15, 2014 
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.



 
 



 
I'm in a fitful kind of sleep, one arm tossed over my face, one leg hanging off the bed, when I hear a rapping at my door.
My heart starts to pound. What if it's some demented stalker fan? I pull the covers up to my chin, determined to wait it out. But when it comes again, my curiosity gets the better of me and I inch slowly off the bed. Going stealthily step by step, I take a deep breath and look through the peephole.
I gasp when I see Brooks standing there.
My heart goes from a dull pounding to full-on somersault mode. I run my hands through my hair. I must look a wreck. But why should I care?
Because he's pacing outside my room in the middle of the night.
He knocks again, and I unfasten the chain and twist the lock before I change my mind. His feet are bare, and he’s wearing nothing but a faded Pac Man shirt and his boxers. He shouldn't be out here looking like he just rolled out of bed, but he is.
The way his eyes are roaming across my body makes me conscious of the fact that I'm only wearing a pair of itty-bitty shorts and a flimsy tank. I cross my ankles and fold my arms around myself in an attempt to bolster my courage.
"Don't," he whispers, stepping across the threshold. His hands encircle my wrists, gently pulling them away from my body. "You're too beautiful to cover yourself up." He presses the door closed with the back of his foot, extinguishing whatever light was streaming in from the hallway.
Now we're alone together in the darkness of my room, and I'm kind of glad he can't read my face. I'm too conflicted. I don't know what to do. I don't know why he's here. But if I'm being honest, I’m glad that he is. He's finally making the effort to reach out to me instead of leaving me in the barren wasteland I've been living in. Oh, how I’ve missed basking in the warmth of his smile.
“What are you doing here?” I ask, feeling the heat of his body against mine.
“Apologizin’,” he says in that sexy twang of his, drawing out every syllable.
 
REVIEW
 
Game Changer was a cute and sweet story. Sasha is in love with her brother’s friend Brooks and he feels the same. Sasha’s brother Kyle has kept them away from each other. They have been thrown together when Kyle’s heart condition forces him to leave the New York Kings until he recovers. Sasha decides to take her brother’s place on the team and this puts her closer to Brooks.
As I said the story was cute but pretty far-fetched. I know this is fiction but some if it needs to be a bit realistic to enjoy the story. Kyle’s family history and medical issues wouldn’t have even allowed him to play. Then the way Sasha joins the team seemed a bit silly.
If you are looking for a sweet romance where the sister falls for the brother’s friend you will like this. I did like the flow of Ms. West writing so I will be checking out the other books in the series.
 
 






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.

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
