Inside Game by Collette West Blog Tour #5star #Review #Giveaway

Inside Game by Collette West

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Expected Publication: July 10th, 2015

Third baseman Drake Schultz is the undisputed bad boy of the New York Kings. So it's no surprise when Major League Baseball suspends him for taking performance-enhancing drugs. Furious with their superstar, the front office issues an ultimatum: either work with their sober companion or kiss the rest of his quarter-billion-dollar contract goodbye. Cocky and arrogant, Drake resists being saddled with a live-in babysitter—even one he's insanely attracted to.

Drake is Eva Sloane's first celebrity client as a substance abuse counselor, and she knows she's in trouble when he starts tempting her at every turn. The way he looks at her is as hot as sin, but she refuses to become his new drug of choice. Slowly, she helps him realize he has to face the demons from his past and heal his tortured spirit before he can even think about satisfying any craving he has for her. 

This is another great story by Collette West. I have loved every book in this series so far and this one didn't disappoint. 

This story really focuses on Drake overcoming his addiction. The path to becoming clean is not an easy one and Eva is there every step of the way. Doing everything that needs done to ensure his success. What she doesn't know, is how important her attendance of home games for years has been to Drake. Their attraction is immediate, and strong, but Eva's commitment to Drake's success is stronger... at least for a while.

When I finished the book, I found myself releasing a deep smile and smiling. I couldn't help it, I was just so connected to the characters. I hated for the book to end. I'm hoping that we see Eva and Drake again in upcoming book so I continue to see these wonderful characters. 

This book is written in alternating POV.  Although it is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. There is no cliffhanger ending.

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
