BLURB:

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

MY REVIEW:


What do you do when your favorite sports star that you have idolized for years turns out to be a first class jerk? Grey Kelleher finds out when she gets to meet Chase Whitman for the first time and asks for his autograph. No, it doesn't go well. Chase is used to being the star who is living the good life, is adored by fans, has his pick of women and then his life changes after he injures his knee and is sent back to the minors to heal and get back in shape.
     Grey is a strong good looking woman who has led a tough life, and her life still is no bed of roses now, but she still carries on with her life and responsibilities. Both Chase and Grey have secrets and insecurities.  This couple also has chemistry, and even though you want to kick Chase in the butt sometimes, when you read more of the story, you know why he is the way he is and he grows and changes by the end of the story. The author does a good job showing that while Chase can be a jerk, with the right woman, a man can get his act together and get his priorities right. To me, that was realistic. I think a lot of guys act this way when times get tough and their ego gets a readjustment. And he was very fortunate to have found Grey.

Author Info:



uthCollette 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.
