Sports agent Liz Darnell will do anything to win back her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley. And Gavin’s more than ready- especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. But when love unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin are ready for the biggest game-changer of all.
KurvyK’s review: Sometimes a book just resonates with you, and for me, that’s what occurred with Changing the Game, There are so many reasons to like this book, but the fiery passion Gavin and Elizabeth felt for each other is what initially hooked me. They have known each other for years and Gavin never looked at her as more than a friend/agent until Elizabeth planted that kiss on him at the end of the first book (The Perfect Play). What started out as them just having some fun quickly turned into a wonderful and very erotic romance. From the first few pages, I knew Gavin was going to be one of my favorite Heroes. He’s a major league baseball player, with a perfect, toned body, good-looking, funny, charming, confident, who is very close to his family. In other words, THE PERFECT GUY. He’s been living and enjoying the single life and plans to keep it that way. Elizabeth has been in love with Gavin for six years, but needed to keep their relationship professional. She’s a hard-ass on the outside, but a loving, soft woman on the inside. Once Gavin sees this side of her personality she’s kept hidden, he begins to look at her differently. The dialog between them is sooooo very sexy and hot, I consider this book a panty-melter. They are very verbal about what they want, like and what feels good, so the sex scenes are beyond smokin’.
The secondary characters, specifically Elizabeth’s friends, play an important part in the sory. Shawnelle was endearing and very funny. If this were a movie, she would have stolen all of her scenes. I felt as though I knew them, and I cared for them, as if they were my friends. Kudos to Jaci Burton for writing such well-developed characters.
Overall, Gavin and Elizabeth were a perfect match and I loved that they couldn’t ever get enough of each other no matter what difficulties they were working through. This book was emotional and satisfying and I highly recommend it– Easily one of my FAVORITES of the year.
