Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Game Winner by Collette West!

Game Winner by Collette West
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

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.

So, if you've kept up with this series so far, you know Jake Woodbury is the nice, clean, quiet, good guy of the NY Kings. And he is, he's super nice. Scarlett is....not what you would expect, but kind of what you would expect at the same time. That probably doesn't make sense. She doesn't really want to be the person the world thinks she is, but sometimes it seems to just be who she is. 

I'm not going to lie here, this review is hard for me. As I'm sure you all remember from the previous books, Jake is deeply religious. Scarlett is not, and that's something Scarlett and I have in common. Usually, religion in books doesn't bother me. I may not be religious, and I may not believe in God, but plenty of people do. I don't force my opinion of that on other people. Truthfully, I don't care. If you're religious, that's great. If you aren't, that's cool too. At least that's how I feel about it. But Jake is deep. He's constantly worrying about his sins, and he internalizes those thoughts so often, it took away from the rest of the story a bit, for me. And Scarlett isn't religious either, so she basically just is, and Jake accepts that, which I didn't expect. 

I did enjoy the story line. I enjoyed the main characters, except for those small issues I already pointed out, and I definitely enjoyed their interactions with the rest of the Kings and their women. All in all, another good addition to this series. 


About the Author

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 NIGHT GAMES, GAME CHANGER and GAME ON.
