Tour: Perfect Game by Collette West


For New York Kings' first baseman Scott Harper, scoring women is easy. He's ready to get naked anytime, anywhere. But when a hacker leaks his nude selfies, he's unprepared for the scrutiny his full-frontals receive.
Carrie McKenzie has a love-hate relationship with her body. No longer the fat chick guys can ignore, she wins the job as the Kings' clubhouse reporter. With her svelte new figure, she nabs an exclusive interview with Scott to get his take on the scandal. However, the two are already on a first-name basis after Scott came on to her in the hotel bar, and she woke up in his arms. The problem is that Scott doesn't do relationships and Carrie doesn't date jocks, yet the way they burn up the sheets is deserving of more than just a one-night stand. Scott shows Carrie that he has a sweet, caring side beneath all the swagger. But can she really trust her heart to the biggest player in the game?

My Review:

Perfect GamePerfect Game by Collette West
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Carrie McKenzie has worked hard to get where she is as the reporter for the New York Kings baseball team, and she isn't about to let her attraction to notorious player Scott Harper mess anything up for her. She finally allows herself one night with Scott while the team is in Panama, but after that night both Carrie and Scott find it difficult to stay away from one another despite the consequences to both of them. Along with the challenges they face as Scott tries to prove to Carrie that he can change his behaviors, they face some serious challenges as the secrets about Carrie's family are revealed. Soon they find themselves fighting some pretty big battles that go beyond the scope of their relationship.

I became engaged quickly in the story and found it easy to connect to Carrie. She was fighting to be a professional in a field where she was regularly objectified. In addition, she had to deal with the reality that the man holding her interest was not a good candidate for anything other than a great night in bed. Learning more about the dynamics of Carrie's family, and about Scott's background and struggles helped me connect more to both characters. Their physical chemistry was very hot, and as they connected emotionally as well I was really hoping that they would be able to deal with some of the serious corruption that was interfering with multiple aspects of their lives. I have enjoyed other books by this author in the past, and will continue to read more of her in the future. 3.5 stars

About Collette West

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. Email her at collette_west@yahoo.com. She is the author of NIGHT GAMES and GAME CHANGER.
