Night Games
By: Collette West

Blurb
The moment Grey Kelleher locks eyes with All-Star shortstop Chase Whitfield, she's a goner. For years, she's watched him play on TV, and now she's gazing at his hard, lean body across a bar in her hometown.

Grey's crush on Chase goes all the way back to his rookie season. So when she approaches him for an autograph, she's startled by what a jerk he can be.

Chase is no mood to humor his fans, even one as alluring as Grey. He's in the last year of his contract and stuck having to prove himself on a minor league team. He's only there to rehab an injury, nothing more.

But when Grey tells him off, Chase realizes her fiery spirit may be just the distraction he needs to take his mind off not being in the majors. His heart is safe. No one's going to break his streak as baseball's most eligible bachelor. Not even someone as irresistible as Grey.

My Review
Chase has been injured and to add insult to that injury he has to play in the minors to do a rehab on his injury. He doesn't want to be bothered by people and  when a woman approaches him he tells her off. Grey is Chase's biggest fan/ She has followed him for years but after seeing how he treats his fans she believes he is a jerk. Grey my be just what Chase needs to get him out of his funk. He is not ready to settle down but she calls to him. He wants to know more about her. A danger arises and what they have begun to feel for each other will be put to the test.

I have to say I did not like Chase at all. He seemed like such a rude jerk and at time selfish. He has a big head and doesn't care who he steps on. However he did have a few good qualities like trying to help Grey. Grey has a lot going on and and while Chase has pissed her off she still thinks to get him another chance. I have to say this wasn't what I expected. i thought it would just be baseball and two opposites falling for each other but it was more. There was danger, love, sadness and so much more. It does give you a glimpse of what a ballplayers life may be like and those who support them. I will say a few of the twist in the book surprised me. Overall it is a good read.

Author Info
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 collette_west@yahoo.com.
