Changing the Game (Play by Play #2)
Genre: Erotic Romance
Most people play by the rules. Gavin and Liz aren't most people....
Win at any cost. That's always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she'll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She's had a thing for this player's moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants her just as bad.
Gavin's more than ready—especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants. For added thrills, he decides to throw a little curve ball Liz's way to see just how far she's truly willing to go to keep him as a client. But when love unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin are ready for the biggest game-changer of them all.
With everything that went down in the first book, I wasn’t a fan of Elizabeth, not one bit. I found her selfish and cold but in this read you get insight into why the way she is and I started to warm up to her. Who was the biggest jerk of all in this read? Mick. He was so harsh toward Elizabeth, fair enough she hurt him and hurt the ones he loved, but she paid her dues and he still continued to attack her over it every chance he got, ignoring if it came at the detriment of Gavin and his feelings for her. I’m just glad that Mick finally saw past his anger and turned back into the Mick that I knew in the first read, not the spiteful one he started off as in here. Granted, Mick wasn’t the only one who acted like a jerk in this; Gavin had his moments and filled his share of the jerk quota.
The steam in this read was some of the hottest I have read in a while and there was quite a lot of it, which I didn’t mind one bit of course. We get more of an insight into Mick and Gavin’s sister Jenna in this one, she added a nice spark to the read in the few scenes she was in and I can’t wait to read about her in the next book.
