Quickie Review ~ Changing The Game by Jaci Burton


Changing the Game

Title: Changing The Game
Author: Jaci Burton
Series:  Play by Play #2
Genre:  Contemporary Romance, Erotic
Format:  E-Book
Release Date:  August 2, 2011

Rating: 4/5

Synopsis:

An erotic new game from the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Play.

Sports agent Liz Darnell will do anything to win back her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley. And Gavin's more than ready- especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. But when love unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin are ready for the biggest game-changer of all.


First Line:

Gavin Riley knew Elizabeth Darnell had been avoiding him for the past several months.



Review:
Changing The Game picks up right where The Perfect Play left off.  I think for me personally, the end of The Perfect Play was the perfect set up for Changing The Game.  Though I am going to agree with most of the reviews that I have read prior to purchasing the book and say that Mick was BEYOND a prick through out the book, though I am glad that he did FINALLY get his head out of his ass and get over himself.

Gavin and Elizabeth come from two completely different backgrounds.  Gavin comes from an family where there is more than enough love to go around.  Elizabeth comes from a family in which emotional abuse was the norm.  Gavin is a "ladies man" and Liz has a pretty significant "dry spell."  Gavin is Liz's client and Liz is Gavin's agent.  There are so many things and ways that these two are completely different and should not be together at all.

There is a TON of growing done by both Gavin and Liz in this book and they most defiantly took the scenic route through there love story.  The only thing that irked me about the book was that I thought that for a good chunk of the book the sex between Gavin and Liz was the main focus and not their budding romance.  That and Mick, I kept thinking "hey how 5 years old of you Mick" when ever he made and appearance right up until the end.  Another added bonus was the introduction of Jenna's love interest, Ty Anderson HOT hockey player extraordinaire.  It makes me sad that I have to wait until March 6, 2012 to read Jenna and Ty's story. :(
