Author: Katie McCoy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 21, 2015
Rule of reporting 101-- don't bang your subject.
Sophie Hall has just gotten the opportunity of a lifetime--to profile Nathan Ryder, the hottest baseball player since A-Rod, for her first solo assignment as a reporter. Rumor has it Nathan is going to be drafted to the Major league, and yet he still fits an intense training regime around volunteering at a animal shelter. He's a prodigy with a heart of gold, as American as apple pie and has an ass that deserves a trophy all its own. He may be the country's heartthrob, but Sophie isn't going to fall for that. She just has to remain objective and cover the story.
But she didn't bet on Nathan's gorgeous green eyes or the way his arms flex with muscle when he's holding a bat. And she certainly didn't think he'd be witty and smart and caring. Nathan is completely untouchable, but she can't help it if those lingering gazes turn into something more. How could she not fall at the thought of the hottest guy she's ever met devoting his limited free time to saving puppies?
When Sophie's scoop turns into Nathan's scandal, Nathan needs her more than ever. With both of their careers on the line will they strike out - or hit a home run?
Sophie is the girl who has her eye set on a very badass sexy and all things sinful baseball player. Despite having to interview him for her job, she just can't seem to shake her blurred mind from all those blushing thoughts she has of him.
It doesn't help that once she meets him, Nathan too seems to have something brewing in his own mind. He meets a girl that doesn't just want him for his fame, his money or for exposure. No. Sophie is different. BUT, little does he know that the girl he practically had to "beg" her to stay and have one more drink with him, turns out to be a journalist.. That is meant to follow him around for about a week..
This story sets off from a very addictive beginning.
We glimpse into Sophie's mindset about Nathan straight away and we meet him even sooner than I anticipated.
She is one year older than him, which I don't tend to like in stories. Nothing personal, but my mindset always seems to think that the guy should be older.. This didn't impact on my overall view of the story as it usually would.
GAME ON is a very fast paced, sexy read that is fun and can be read in one sitting. That's what I did.
The only slightly negative factor would just be that I couldn't complete or wholeheartedly connect with both the characters when it came to the choices that they made, whether it was about them or anything else involving their careers. I just didn't seem to have that switch were I was 100% into how they came about their decisions.. That ONLY happened a couple of times though.
Through the ending I was wishing to have more!!! I need more Nathan and his bad ass alpha male and sweet heart mix..
Overall, I really liked it and would look for more of Katie McCoy's work!!
Thank you to the author for providing an ARC that not only has a drool worthy cover, but a story that will melt heart and that's an understatement...
