Review: Night Games by Collette West

Night Games by 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.

Collette West is an amazing author and has a way of drawing readers in. She immediately drew me in with her dedication to "those who've ever had a crush on a baseball player" because it's totally true for me (and he also happens to be a shortstop: Zach Cozart) - but that's not at all what makes her a great author. Her story was unique because for starters there are not a lot of books out there that really focus on someone ending up with someone whose famous in sports. 
I loved how the characters interacted with each other (the majority of the time - there were times when I just wanted to smack Chase upside the head), and I also enjoyed how both characters had enough flaws that I honestly could see a lot of people running away from. It might have scared them at first, but they were able to overcome those problems together. The romance wasn't the best because I felt like there was a lack of a spark, but it was easy to tell that they cared and loved each other a lot just because of a lot of there thoughts and actions toward each other. The ending was phenomenal, and I didn't have even questions remaining once I finished the book. I would definitely recommend for anyone to pick up this book because it was overall really good!

Note: I received this book free from Collette West and Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
