When life throws you a curveball, do you have what it takes to get back in the game?
All I ever wanted was to play ball. When an act of sheer stupidity took that dream away, I didn’t know if I would ever bounce back. But now I’ve got the opportunity to coach an up-and-coming phenom, and I’m going to give it all I’ve got. The fact that I’ve been lusting after his smoking hot sister only sweetens the deal. She’s got that whole sexy librarian thing going on—all buttoned up and prim. I can’t stop thinking about undoing every one of those buttons.
The only problem? She thinks I’m just a kid. But I’ll show her I’m not only a man…I’m the man for her.
Never underestimate the importance of a well-thought-out plan. My life is a series of carefully calculated decisions, all aimed at ensuring a successful future that includes a partnership at a prestigious law firm. I didn’t expect to find myself suddenly acting as guardian for my younger brother, Jay, but I can adjust for his sake. I’m not about to let one change make me lose sight of my goals. Unfortunately, my brother’s very hot and very young baseball coach doesn’t care too much about my plans. He has a plan of his own–one that includes making me fall for him.
I just need to keep my eye on the ball and remember my priorities, because this is one game I can’t afford to lose.
The Game is Book 4 in Sylvie Stewart’s Carolina Connections series. The Fix (Book 1), The Spark (Book 2), and The Lucky One (Book 3) are currently available in ebook and paperback. Each book can be read as a standalone with a big, fat HEA.
This book contains language and sexual content inappropriate for readers under 18.
Once again, I find myself greedily devouring another book from this talented author.
I really think that each book I have read has been stronger than the last. And, although the cast of side characters and their intertwining relationships may have your head spinning a little, Gavin and Emerson work really well as a couple.
And yet, in some ways, it’s the interactions with Jay that really adds the extra depth to the story. Throw in the completely opposite parents and it just all works really well.
A one sitting read, and so very nearly 5*.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Sylvie Stewart is an author of Romance and Romantic Comedy. Like the characters in her books, North Carolina is where Sylvie calls home these days, and she can’t get enough of the great weather and fun adventures NC offers. She and her husband love arguing over which of them is the funniest. Sometimes, she lets him win because she’s cool like that. When she’s not writing, she is hanging out with her husband and kids or reading, Romance being her favorite genre, of course. And she knows that life wouldn’t be worth living without a lot of laughter, friends, and wine!
