**BT & Giveaway** Night Games ~ Collette West

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.

Night Games is a sweet and sexy "Cinderella" read about a small town girl, Grey, who loves her quiet, and her baseball. Spending most of her life revolving her jobs, her friends, her fun times around what the baseball schedule is, just so she can take a glimpse of her favorite player. Chase Whitfield.

Some people seem to think that Chase is a jerk, but really when day after day, year after year, he's hounded for autographs, pictures, sometimes you just got to have a little quiet time. When his debut game after being on the injured list comes around, he goes nuts when a heckler in the crowd gets a little too loud. Chase is immediately drawn to Grey when he catches a glimpse of her at his game. He wishes he would have at least gotten her number!

Chase and Grey set off on a whirlwind rollercoaster of a ride, between heckling fans, injuries, managers, and annoying sisters. They need all the help they can get.

In my opinion, great little read, I will definitely pick it back up again. There was moments when I thought "what the heck just happened?" "Really, did he just do that??". There was a couple of little things about the story that caught me off guard, especially in regards to Chase's emotional standpoint. I did feel like the controversary in the story was a little bit anti-climatic and should hvae been thought out a little more. At one point, I couldn't help but think it was completely outrageous in the conclusion of the conflict. Otherwise, very well thought out story. I loved the entire line of small town girl and famous all star player falling in love. Props to Collette West, I'll definitely be checkign out any other works she has coming soon. ;)

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
