Night Games Synopsis
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.
**Provided ARC for Review**
Ahh, how could I not love a hot, smexy baseball player? Truth is, I couldn’t. Chase Whitfield is coming off the injured list for his knee and his first game is playing for the minor league team associated with his major league team, the Kings. All he wants to do it is finish off his stint with the minor team and head back to New York. What he doesn’t expect is Grey.
Grey has loved Chase for as long as she can remember. No, she has never met him but she has loved him from afar. She has never missed a game he has played in and is shocked to find out he is going to pay in the minor’s in her town. Her sister drags her to the game, then proceeds to get drunk and taunts Chase. Chase has enough of her sister and has them thrown out of the game. However, before Grey leaves, she and Chase seem to connect.
Chase can’t believe he had her thrown out and can’t stop thinking about her. As luck would have it she show up where he is eating dinner. Needless to say that encounter doesn’t go well. When Grey leaves, he has his driver go after her. This starts their crazy, whirlwind relationship.
When Chase gets called back up to the King’s, he wants to keep Grey out of the spotlight; however, things are not that simple. Soon everyone knows about their relationship and he is determined to keep Grey’s secret past hidden. Grey is forced to realize that in order to keep her past buried, she must face her past. Chase soon finds out what where she has ran off to and is determined to save her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Grey is a small town girl who falls in love with New York’s most eligible bachelor. Never in her wildest dreams does she think anything will ever become of her feelings. Chase’s injury makes him realize there is more to life than baseball and he wants more than what he has. When these two meet, you can almost feel the air sizzle. This book was an enjoyable read. I couldn’t help but root for Grey and Chase to be together. There seemed to be so many obstacles in their way, but they were determined to make it work. Want to know what Grey’s secret is? If they get their HEA? Well, you are going to have to go get the book! You will not be disappointed!!

Collette West Bio
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.
