Changing The Game (Play By Play, #2)

Changing the Game - Jaci Burton When read the preview to Changing the Game, I thought to myself, "how in the world will Jaci Burton make Liz likable?" In The Perfect Play, Liz went beyond her sports agent duties and betrayed Mick in the worse possible way. I don't think anyone who read The Perfect Play liked Liz by the end of the book. In Changing the Game, not only is Liz completely and totally likable but you are rooting for her til the very end.Changing the Game is hot from start to finish. The first 20+ pages are beyond steamy! Gavin is one hot sexy man who likes to give orders and talk dirty. Mick's book my have had the best cover but Gavin beats Mick hands down with the sexy. First off, Gavin has a goatee. I *love* a man with facial hair. Gavin is straight-forward with what he wants sexually. He doesn't hold anything back. The way he gives orders and make demands in the bedroom is such a turn on. I love a man who knows what he wants.In The Perfect Play, Liz was utterly unlikable. But in Changing the Game, I was rooting for her. Liz and Gavin have explosive chemistry. Liz has been in love with Gavin for 5 years but of course, has not acted on it. She's his agent and it's a conflict of interest. When Gavin makes the first move, there's no way that Liz can resist. And who can blame her? Gavin and Liz decide that they going to be f*ck buddies for as long as they feel like being f*ck buddies. Of course, for Liz, this means that her time with Gavin is going to come to an end and she's going to have to make sure her feelings for him never surface. Gavin has no problem bedding Liz. She's hot, sexy and they have great chemistry in and out of the bedroom. As long as they are both enjoying themselves, where's the harm?Gavin wins hands down as the sexy brother. Sorry Mick! Gavin is dedicated to baseball. Even though he's rich and famous and is successful in his own right, he still lives in the shadow of his older brother, Mick. You don't realize how much it affects him until Mick tries to come in between Gavin and Liz's relationship.Liz is a woman who is driven, ambitious and who has to be in control. She came from a home where her father ruled with an iron fist. She never wants to be with a man who will control her. She holds onto that control like it is a lifeline. Liz is in love with Gavin but won't cross the professional line between agent and athlete. Liz truly understands Gavin and understands what makes him happy, even if he's not willing to see it for himself.Changing the Game was a scorcher from start to finish. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Gavin and Liz together but I am so happy that it worked. Their relationship totally worked for me and I loved it. I never thought that I would be wanting to kick Mick in the ass and totally be on Liz's side. Mick was a total butthead to her and he was pretty unlikable throughout most of the book. His problem with Gavin and Liz's relationship almost ruined his relationship with his brother and his family. I think Micks reluctance to forgive Liz was portrayed realistically and I liked that even though Mick was a total butthead. I love the family dynamic. The Riley's are a great, supportive family. They rally around each other and are not afraid to say when someone is being dumb or out of line. I look forward to visiting the Riley's again in Jenna's book.Changing the Game worked for me from start to finish. It was sexy (a scorcher I tell ya!) with great characters that had chemistry in and out of the bedroom. Gavin turned out to be such a surprise! He's sexy, yeah, but he's also a sweetheart. Here's an example:I think you're worth fighting for, Elizabeth. Even if I'm fighting you for you.Swoon! Sexy, sweet and sensitive! Winning, duh!Changing the Game is a must read that I highly recommend! Jaci Burton outdid herself with this one. When you start reading Changing the Game, make sure you have a towel handy! It is That. Damn. Hot.
