Night Games by Collette West Review Tour

The moment Grey Kelleher locks eyes with All-Star shortstop Chase Whitfield, she's a goner. For years, she's watched him play on TV, and now she's gazing at his hard, lean body across a bar in her hometown.

Grey's crush on Chase goes all the way back to his rookie season. So when she approaches him for an autograph, she's startled by what a jerk he can be.

Chase is no mood to humor his fans, even one as alluring as Grey. He's in the last year of his contract and stuck having to prove himself on a minor league team. He's only there to rehab an injury, nothing more.

But when Grey tells him off, Chase realizes her fiery spirit may be just the distraction he needs to take his mind off not being in the majors. His heart is safe. No one's going to break his streak as baseball's most eligible bachelor. Not even someone as irresistible as Grey.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆
Grey loves baseball and is excited when her favorite player, Chase Whitfield, is rehabbing in her local hometown. What she doesn't expect is the mask of hostility that Chase is wearing.

Chase is hurt physically and hurting mentally. His whole adult life has been spent as a baseball player. If his knee can't perform, he's out of baseball for good. Feeling lost and snubbed for being sent to Hicksville USA to rehab, he lets his anger loose.

Intrigued by the woman that stood up to him, he wants to get to know her better. Grey senses that there is more to Chase that what meets the eye, but she's not sure she wants to put up with the constant mood swings that seemingly define Chase Whitfield.

I really liked this book. I thought the story tended to drag in some places but thought the author did an excellent job in explaining the emotions of the characters.

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.
