Playing center field for the New York Kings, Jake Woodbury has one of the most prestigious jobs in all of sports. To the world, he’s the good-looking, soft-spoken minister’s son who’s survived celebrity without a hint of scandal. But, inside, he’s reeling from a secret that seems destined to haunt him forever.
Scarlett Moore is one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, famous for singing about her celebrity ex-boyfriends. The CEO of her record label has carefully honed her provocative image since she was fifteen. Sex sells, and Scarlett’s well aware that it takes more than talent to stay on top.
One thing is clear: She’s the last thing Jake needs. And he’s the do-gooder jock she should avoid at all costs. But when the game begins, all bets are off.
Gentlemen in the streets and freak in the sheets!
This is the first book I read by the author. This is not the LAST book I will read by the author. I love a great romance. I love baseball. I love baseball romance.
I was concern in the beginning I was going to read an inspirational romance devoid of any smexy times. I’m so glad that is not the case. The author created something new and mixed religion with a love story.
Jake Woodbury, sexy centerfielder of the New York Kings has no idea how gorgeous he is. All the ladies love him and even some men. However, with all the women throwing themselves at him, he refuses to be the manwhore jock everyone wants him to be.
He is dealing with a broken relationship that has created a burden of guilt, doubt and faith. He guards his secret, not letting anyone get close enough to find out, even his parents.
When Jake meets the gorgeous rock star Scarlett Moore, his life changes. He feels instantly connected to her and her voice as she sings the National Anthem at the KING’s playoff game.
Scarlett is the complete opposite. There is not anything the two of them could possibly have in common. But Jack’s kisses make her forget he is a do-gooder. Jake is successful, kindhearted and intensively passionate. He is not the wholesome guy in the bedroom. That’s what makes him so darn sexy and irresistible.
Dating Scarlett, Jake is forced to confront celebrity, tabloids and her record label. It’s time for him to decide if she is worth sharing his secret with. Can he survive another heartbreak?
The Game Winner is an emotional journey. Its touching, sizzling, and the writing sings! The smexy will steam you up! An emotional romance every baseball fan will love.
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 email@example.com.
She is the author of the New York Kings series which includes: NIGHT GAMES, GAME CHANGER, GAME ON, PERFECT GAME, INSIDE GAME and GAME WINNER.
