PLEASE EXCUSE THE MESS

Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

Changing the Game by Jaci Burton

BACK COVER:

Win at any cost. That's always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she'll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She's had a thing for this player's moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants her just as bad.

Gavin's more than ready-especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants. For added thrills, he decides to throw a little curve ball Liz's way to see just how far she's truly wiling to go to keep him as a client. But when love unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin are ready for the biggest game-changer of them all.

MY THOUGHTS:

Boy howdy does Jaci Burton know how to choose book covers. I fully confess that I bought Burton's books because of the covers. They are just yummy. ;)

I was intrigued to see how Liz's character played out in this story. From Burton's, The Perfect Play, Liz came off as an ice queen until she screwed over Gavin's brother Mick and finally shows some emotion. Up until that point, I really didn't like her. I thought she was selfish as well as had a one track mind when it came to her clients business. Burton showed you that Liz was actually really lonely and had genuine guilt for what she did to Mick's girlfriend from The Perfect Play. I grew to love her personality and all her quirks and insecurities. I'm glad I was able to read her transformation from lonely wench to loved woman.

Gavin, Gavin, Gavin. Are you a parking ticket because you have fine written all over you. :) Yes, yes I went there. I loved his character. And who wouldn't love the bad boy athlete. I really enjoyed the journey of his struggles being in the shadow of Mick's addiction growing up and feeling like he was always a second thought. I love how Liz made him feel like he was better than that. Of course I enjoyed when his dad chewed him out about how he treated Liz at one point. You saw that he was a normal person who makes mistakes and has fears and insecurities.

I know I have said this a lot but I loved this book. I am currently stalking Jaci Burton's site to see if there are any updates on her next book. I may even read her Play-by-Play series again while I wait for the next one. Can't wait!!!!!
