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.




I received an ARC of this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

Unfortunately, I haven’t read the entire series. However, the ones that I’ve read were all amazing books that I truly loved. Before my first book from this series, I haven’t heard of Collette West before. I am really glad I took a chance and read the first New York Kings I ever read. Because of that book, I met another author I’d willingly watch out for and another series that I keep looking forward to.

This book is now Jake’s story. We’ve met him in previous books, and we all know his character. The heroine, Scarlett, we haven’t met her before. However, both main characters were just perfect for each other. At first, I couldn’t really quite picture Jake having his own book or that I would even be interested in it. I was wrong. Ms. West always knows what to do with her kings because she made me a fan of Jake, the otherwise boring-sounding player that I wasn’t that intrigued with.

I don’t know if she will write more books for this series in the future, but I hope she does. If not, I will still be following her and watching out for more books from her.



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

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.
