Title: Game On
Author: Katie McCoy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: October 21, 2015


Rule of reporting 101-- don't bang your subject. 

Sophie Hall has just gotten the opportunity of a lifetime--to profile Nathan Ryder, the hottest baseball player since A-Rod, for her first solo assignment as a reporter. Rumor has it Nathan is going to be drafted to the Major league, and yet he still fits an intense training regime around volunteering at a animal shelter. He's a prodigy with a heart of gold, as American as apple pie and has an ass that deserves a trophy all its own. He may be the country's heartthrob, but Sophie isn't going to fall for that. She just has to remain objective and cover the story.

But she didn't bet on Nathan's gorgeous green eyes or the way his arms flex with muscle when he's holding a bat. And she certainly didn't think he'd be witty and smart and caring. Nathan is completely untouchable, but she can't help it if those lingering gazes turn into something more. How could she not fall at the thought of the hottest guy she's ever met devoting his limited free time to saving puppies?

When Sophie's scoop turns into Nathan's scandal, Nathan needs her more than ever. With both of their careers on the line will they strike out - or hit a home run?

My Review:
I am very used to reading books about up-and-coming college sports stars. They know they are good and they want the world to know how good they are. Although that never really bothered me, Game On wasn't like that. Nathan Ryder wasn't like that and it was a very refreshing reading experience for me. He was humble and down to earth. He spends his time at a no-kill animal shelter because he enjoys it and it makes him feel good and I thought that was so amazing and very worthy of a story.  

I loved Sophie and how much she just wanted to create a story that showed the world what Nathan Ryder had in store and how much of an amazing person he was besides his mind blowing baseball skills. After seeing the cover (which, was extremely attractive by the way), I expected Nathan to be more of 'bad boy' but he was pretty much the exact opposite. He was a big, ball playing teddy bear who spent his free time with kittens and reading to children.

Sparks flew as soon as these two met and if I thought they were adorable together. The only problem was that Nathan -understandably- couldn't stand to be around reporters. He felt as if they were constantly waiting to dig up something that could ruin his career and I didn't blame him because that is very much the case a lot of times. However, no matter how much he tries to evade her and his growing feelings for her, it's impossible. I loved seeing him warm up to her and finally understand that maybe not all reporters are the same. I admired these two together because they very often brought out the good from one another. The epilogue was absolutely adorable and I honestly just wanted to keep reading more about these two. 

Katie McCoy is a new author for me but I am very excited to see what she has in store after this book. It was a very funny, sweet, and undoubtedly sexy read.
