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 kittens?
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?
I received an ARC for Game On by Katie McCoy in exchange for an honest review.
Katie McCoy is a genius. Her writing style was perfect and i was completely engrossed from start to finish. Nathan the hero isn't particularly an "Alpha Male" but he has some of the most swoon worthy qualities i have seen in a male character. He is charming, kind,sweet and hot. He is basically the perfect man as long as you're not a member of the press.
This is where the main anxiety in the book comes in. Sweet Sophie is a member of the press and is actually there to do an interview with Nathan. Sophie is independent and a genuinely good person who stands up for what she believes in.
It is purely a book of wrong place wrong time when it comes to these two lovebirds. They are completely perfect for each other and the obstacles they overcome are more circumstantial which I loved. This meant that there is no cheating, no deranged fans or ex girlfriends trying to win back the hero and you are left with two people trying to work through their problems like adults.
I was also caught up in the secondary characters subplot and that only goes to prove how amazing McCoy's writing is and how well rounded Game On is.
This book is perfect for anyone in search of a good old fashioned love story.
