For New York Kings’ first baseman Scott Harper, scoring women is easy. He’s ready to get naked anytime, anywhere. But when a hacker leaks his nude selfies, he’s unprepared for the scrutiny his full-frontals receive.
Carrie McKenzie has a love-hate relationship with her body. No longer the fat chick guys can ignore, she wins the job as the Kings’ clubhouse reporter. With her svelte new figure, she nabs an exclusive interview with Scott to get his take on the scandal.
However, the two are already on a first-name basis after Scott came on to her in the hotel bar, and she woke up in his arms. The problem is that Scott doesn’t do relationships and Carrie doesn’t date jocks, yet the way they burn up the sheets is deserving of more than just a one-night stand.
Scott shows Carrie that he has a sweet, caring side beneath all the swagger. But can she really trust her heart to the biggest player in the game?

Signed Paperback of PERFECT GAME (U.S.)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
She is the author of NIGHT GAMES and GAME CHANGER.
Collette West has created this misfit band of brothers that are all passionate about baseball and their women. I cannot get enough of her New York Kings books and I think that Collette’s sports romances are some of the best on the market. Her ball players are hilarious and endearing – I have not met a player yet that I didn’t enjoy. I honestly wish I could find a New York Kings shirt. I would wear it proudly because I love this team and all the people attached to it. The tough part would be deciding whose number to wear on my back but after reading Perfect Game, I’m pretty sure it would be Scott Harper’s.
Right from the start, Scott and Carrie’s chemistry leaps from the pages in the book. You feel it. Their connection and relationship builds throughout the season as does your affinity for the couple. I truly enjoyed reading their story. It felt like everyone underestimated these two characters. No one expects too much from them – be pretty. Do your job. Know your place on the team.
Except neither one wants to accept their position. They both want more and their journey to finding their happily ever after is a bit of a roller coaster ride. But what I had not expected was how the two supported one another. When one had an insecurity or a perceived flaw – the other stepped up and gave more of themselves to be what the other needs. They push each other to be better.
Perfect Game is an awesome book. This couple will steal your smiles and ultimately your heart. They are sneaky about it too – you don’t know it’s gone until it’s very much theirs. I loved Scott and Carrie – you should take the time to meet them. You will become a fan, too.
