Tour: Game Changer by Collette West

Synopsis

Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davison is tearing it up as the latest shortstop for the New York Kings, despite his tendency to blush whenever girls scream his name.When a health scare forces his best friend, Kyle Roberts, off the team, no one can stomach the thought of replacing him, especially so close to the playoffs.Until Kyle's sister, Sasha, steps in, convincing management to let her take his place. The idea of signing the first female player in Major League history proves too tempting for the Kings to resist.Nevertheless, Brooks doesn't want any part of it. Sasha is Kyle's little sister, not some sideshow. Yet when Kyle takes a turn for the worse, Brooks promises to do everything in his power to help Sasha win a championship for him. Because there's no way he's letting either of them down. Not now, not ever.


 
 

EXCERPT:

“Dad, you talk to Brooks...on a regular basis?” I lean back, gripping the edge of the table. “Pretty much ten minutes here, ten minutes there. The boy has a rotten father, so I try to check in with him from time to time.” He shrugs, sliding the tray closer to him. “How bad is his father?” I question him, eager to hear more. “He told Brooks when he got signed that, ‘A real man doesn’t play a game for a living,’ so you can imagine what a tough ass he is. Most fathers would be over the moon to have a son”—he pauses, smiling at me—“or a daughter in the majors. Not him. I guess working on an oil rig eleven months out of the year will do that to a person.” “I had no idea,” I mumble glumly, staring off into space. “Well, at least he has his mama. And you and Kyle.” I can feel my dad’s eyes on me, but I’m too afraid to meet them.

He doesn’t live in a bubble. He must’ve heard the rumors swirling around. “You know?” I finally glance up at him. When he nods, I quickly look down again. “I thought you’d want to castrate him when you found out.” “Brooks is a fine young man,” he replies without hesitation. “Just be patient with him, Sasha. He’s not as sure of himself as you are.” My dad reaches across the table to pat my hand. He knows I’ve been waiting for Brooks to call, and I’m upset that he left me hanging. I should know from the ‘go get’em!’ pep talks of my childhood that my dad gives good advice. He only ever wants what’s best for me. I should listen to him. “Thanks, Dad,” I say, smiling up at him. “I’ll try.”

 
 

About Collette West

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.

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.

Synopsis:
 
After being jilted, practically at the altar, Genie Wainwright heads to Hawaii to escape the well-meant pity party her friends and family are bound to throw on her behalf. What she never expects is to find someone to help her mend her broken heart.

Donnie Taylor, owner of the posh Sapphire Bay Resort, has no interest in marriage--until he meets an unforgettable guest at the hotel. What starts out as a kindhearted gesture brings Donnie something he never expects--love!
 
Prologue
Genie Wainwright stared at her reflection in the mirror, and ignored the light
but determined tapping at the door. She remained silent, soaking up the sadness of
the now empty bride’s chamber.
Just an hour ago, this room at the Jefferson Hills Country Club had been filled
with revelry. Six bridesmaids—including Ross’s sister, Genie’s sisters Amanda
and Amber, and three of Genie’s good friends Shelly, Serena and Jessica—throw
in the maid of honor (her best friend Cami), Ross’s mother, Genie’s mother and
grandmother, and it was like a pre-wedding party before the ceremony.
 
But that was before Aaron (Ross’s dad) called his wife out into the hallway.
When she came back in, she’d lost the smile she’d left with. Genie had known in
an instant that something was terribly wrong.
The silent isolation of the now empty room wrapped its icy disdain around
Genie, bringing her back to the present. She cleared her throat and pushed aside the
memory of that devastating moment when her perfect life had ended. She didn’t
want to relieve it again. Not now. Not ever.
“Go away,” Genie said to the incessant knocker.
“Gene, open the door.” Cami’s unrelenting voice traveled through the walls.
 
Genie didn’t respond. Just kept staring at herself in the mirror. Her dark hair
piled on top of her head still looked perfect. Her blue eyes were vacant of anything,
even sadness, she thought. But that would come if she succumbed to the tears. She
had to keep them imprisoned. She would not shed a single tear over that rat bastard
fiancé of hers—make that ex fiancé.
“Genie!” Cami yelled. “If you don’t open the door I’m gonna kick it down.”
Yeah, right. Genie laughed a little.
“And you’ll have to pay for it.” Cami said in a firm voice.
“Go for it!” Genie said softly.
 
An instant later, there was a loud boom and the door swung open.
Genie jumped. Her heart slammed into overdrive. Cami peeked in, then
disappear back out into the hallway. Seconds later, she reappeared. Genie’s jaw
 
dropped as she stared into the mirror, watching Cami waltz into the bride’s
chamber in her sleeveless, knee-length blue dress and wearing a triumphant grin.
Genie glanced over her shoulder and twisted around to look at Cami’s feet.
Stilettos. No way had she kicked in the door in those. Genie shook her head.
“I warned you.” Cami shrugged and dragged a chair up next to Genie. “I’m
your best friend,” she said quietly. Sitting, she raked her light-brown hair behind
her ear. “Why wouldn’t you open the door for me?”
“Because I know you.” Genie turned to look at her. “You’ll try to cheer me
up.”
“Well, yeah...”
“Don’t you get it?” Genie asked. “There’s nothing that you or anyone else can
say that’ll make this better.” It was hopeless. Genie knew that. Why didn’t
everyone else?
“Really?” Cami bit her bottom lip and let her gaze roll around the room. When
she settled back on Genie, she said in a tone that eventually landed in the realm of
a question, “How about...a big-ass meteor crashed into Ross’s house and sent him
straight to hell?”
 
A hint of laughter escaped before Genie could wrangle it in and shove it back
down into the despair pitted in her gut.
“Admit it.” Cami nudged Genie. “It was funny.”
Genie nodded. “Yeah, okay. It was kind of funny.” For a minute. But it wasn’t
enough to take away the emptiness that’d befallen her a couple of hours ago. Ross
had left her—practically at the altar. He hadn’t had the guts to tell her himself that
he didn’t want to marry her. He’d left that chore to his parents.
“Look, I know this is hollow comfort,” Cami said softly. “But even on his best
day, Ross Harper was never good enough for you.”
 
“You’re right,” Genie said. It was hollow comfort. She looked at Cami,
fighting the tears that were hell-bent on escaping. “I’m supposed to be headed to
Hawaii right now. With my husband.” Her voice cracked. She choked the hurt
back down into her gut.
“I’d still go...if I were you.” Cami nodded.
“What...?”
“Hell, yes!” Cami smirked beneath deliberately raised eyebrows. “Trade
Ross’s share in. Upgrade. Go in style.”
Genie shook her head. “I can’t do that.”
“Says who?”
“I have to cancel the trip. Give him back half the money.” Genie’s voice
wavered. “Don’t I?”
“No, you don’t.” Cami said with an arrogant laugh. “Ross owes you a hell of a
 
lot more than a trip to Hawaii. That’s for sure.”
Maybe Cami was right. Ross did owe Genie for the hurt and humiliation he’d
caused her today. But did she really want to spend the next week on the island of
Maui—lovers’ paradise—alone?
 
 Genie shook her head. “That’s just what I need. A week at a resort that caters
to honeymooners.”
“The heck with that,” Cami said. “Go to Oahu. The north shore, where it’s nice
and quiet. There’s that swanky resort up there. Sapphire Bay or something like
that. My parents love that place.”
Well if Cami’s parents loved it, that was a sure sign it wouldn’t be a singles’
playground.
Sapphire Bay sounded perfect. Exactly the kind of place Genie could mend her
broken heart. A place where there would be no eligible men—at least none that’d
pique her interest.
Donnie Taylor had come from old Texas oil money. When he turned twenty-
six, he’d gone to his father with the idea for Sapphire Bay Resort—an upscale
haven set in paradise. His father had been hesitant, but Donnie’s mother had
insisted—even though her son would be moving half a world away.
Five years later, Sapphire Bay Resort was no longer the best kept secret on the
island of Oahu. Located on the North Shore, it appealed to the more discerning
customer rather than the party crowd, who liked to hang out at Waikiki. And that’s
the way Donnie liked it.
He enjoyed living in paradise. He enjoyed running the resort. What he didn’t
enjoy was his mother’s constant nagging about grandchildren. It had gotten worse
when she decided to move to Hawaii about a year ago, after his father died.
Donnie hated disappointing her, but how could he make her see that he hadn’t
met a women he’d want to spend the rest of his life with, much less father her
children.
 
But that hadn’t stopped Marla Taylor. She’d finagled her way into volunteering
at the hotel’s concierge desk, but Donnie knew she was only positioning herself to
scan the women as they came and went. So far, she hadn’t throw any of the hotel’s
guests at him, but it wasn’t for lack of effort. Donnie knew it was only a matter of
time before she found the one she deemed Ms. Right.
 
He strolled through the open veranda, smiling and greeting hotel guests and
staff alike with an amiable nod. His mother wasn’t at the concierge desk, and that
troubled him as he headed for the elevator and his office on the second floor.
His secretary, Lorna, hadn’t come in yet. As Donnie recalled, she’d said
something about a doctor’s appointment today. Passing by Lorna’s work space, he
wondered where his mother was and what she was up to?
Opening the door to his office, he found Marla Taylor sitting at his desk. She
was in her late fifties and not a bad looking woman—as far as mothers go—and
Donnie couldn’t understand why she didn’t concentrate on her own love life.
“Morning, Mother.” He called her mother because he knew it bugged her.
 
“Something wrong with your desk?” He stood beside his chair, staring down at her.
“No. I just wanted to talk to you.” Her Texas drawl was alive and kicking and
truth be told, so was Donnie’s, just not as pronounced. It was hard to get rid of
something that’d been more than twenty-five years in the making.
“What can I do for you?” he asked, thumbing through the files on his desk,
pretending to look at them.
“Well for starters....”
“Never mind.” He raised a hand as if that’d stop her. But something had to.
Donnie had bigger problems than his mother’s need for grandchildren. “Mom, I
really don’t have time right now. Erin called in sick,” he said of one of the two
dayshift hostesses for the Beachcomber Café, one of four restaurants on the
resort’s grounds. “I’ve got to find a replacement to handle her duties.” There was
no way the other hostess, Kelly, could handle the crowd by herself. Donnie
wondered if he could get one of the waitresses from the Oceanview to stand in?
Marla stood. “I can do it.” Her voice was calm, but her eagerness was shining
brightly on her face.
 
It wasn’t the greatest idea, but it wasn’t the worst either. Marla could easily
handle the task of greeting the coffee shop’s patrons. She’d also be on the female
diners like a dog with a bone once she found out they were single. And she would
find out.
“Mom...” He glared at her and issued a stern warning. “You can’t be pestering
the female diners in the restaurant.”
“Donnie.” She used her scolding tone. What she didn’t know was that it hadn’t
worked on him since he’d turned ten. “People in Hawaii are friendly. I intend to
merely uphold that tradition.”
 
He latched onto her arm and guided her toward the door. “Don’t make me
regret this, Mother,” he said, shuffling her out into the hallway.
At this point, Donnie had been able to appease the resort’s guests his mother
had been interrogating. Thankfully, they were easily amused with comps for dinner
at the Wishing Well, Sapphire Bay’s world-renowned steakhouse. He didn’t want
to get to the point where he had to start handing out free passes to the hotel’s best
suites because of his mother’s hare-brained schemes.

Spotlight: To Be Yours Forever by Elliot Richard Dorfman




 
 
To Be Yours Forever
by Elliot Richard Dorfman

 

 

 

Since a child, drama teacher Norma Feinstein, has been infatuated with the 1940s after seeing a musical film made during that era. Her life begins to fall apart when at twenty-three years old she discovers she has the ability to travel back in time. To her shock, Norma learns she was Kathryn Murrow, the budding Hollywood star of “Sky’s The Limit”, the film which began her fascination with the past.

Unable to deal with the pressures of living two lives, one in the present time and one in the 1940’s, Norma seeks help from Dr. Darryl Costner, an eminent psychiatrist interested in reincarnation. Darryl becomes worried that Norma will negatively affect the time continuum when he learns she wants to save her former fiancé Trent Taylor, crooner, and costar of “Sky’s The Limit,” from a so-called accidental death.

With this case becoming too complex for him to handle, Costner gets his friend, Shawn Nolan, a scientist from a governmental agency that has discovered how to time travel, to help him with Norma. Assisted by Gary Hertzman, Costner’s young associate, Shawn takes Norma to his secret lab in Arizona where he searches to find a way to prevent Norma from saving her former lover from sixty-six years ago. If he fails in his task, the very future of the country could be extremely bleak. Will he succeed? The story’s conclusion will captivate the readers of this multilevel novel full of suspense, surprises, and twists.

 

 

 

A crowd of people gathered in front of a well-maintained cottage on a corner near Main Street. They gawked as a disheveled young woman kept turning round and round senselessly while mumbling something incoherently. Finally, a police car arrived. “Get away from me,” the woman screamed wildly when the two police officers tried to approach her. The police immediately phoned in for an ambulance. When it arrived, the medics spoke cautiously to her. The woman quieted down and stared at them in utter confusion.


For her protection, she was carefully strapped to a stretcher and then taken to a nearby hospital for an examination and observation. It was the spring of 1996. Word quickly spread throughout Northington—a small picturesque town in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York—that Norma Feinstein, the popular young Drama teacher at Andrew Jackson high school, had a nervous breakdown. Intelligent, pretty, and talented, she was the only child of Ken and Mildred Feinstein. The Feinsteins were the richest family in town. Many jumped to the conclusion that Norma’s breakdown was the result of becoming too high strung, most likely stemming from her “artistic” temperament and over active imagination.
 If you had refuted them and tried explaining her breakdown was the result of not being able to handle the uncanny ability of traveling back and forth from her present life to one of forty-eight years ago, they would have laughed in your face and called you a weirdo. Yet, who could really blame them for reacting like that? After all, our vain species finds it difficult to accept that we have such little understanding about the universe or life itself.

ReviewsHeader

*****I am in no way surprised that I love this book. It seems that each one just gets better. Carol is a character we've met in the previous two books, but we really knew nothing about her! Her story will make your heart squeeze. What I love about Maryann's books is that they are not just one thing. There is romance, intrigue, friendship, and all of the elements needed for a good read. Even sick it was hard to put it down.

*****Ahh What can I say that I haven't already about Maryann? LOVE this woman and her writing. After reading the first book in this series I didn't think anyone could replace my love for Jake and Emma...then came book 2 and I didn't know who to love more them or Laurie and Rob....now its book 3 with Carol and Tom, LOVE LOVE LOVE these 2.

***** MaryAnn has hit another homer! All of her books are relatable and I can see being friends with these characters. I enjoyed experiencing Carol and Tom's journey in their self discovery and also the journey to help bring them together. This is a story about "surviving" family, being comfortable in your own skin, and letting love work it's magical, healing powers.

I know that. I live with that truth since the second I took my first breath.
I accepted it. Embraced it.
Or maybe not. Maybe I´m just fooling myself and living with it every single day.
For years‚ my routine life was my sanctuary‚ until another second‚ moment happened. A moment that made my heart beat stupidly and I became a stupid girl. A moment that was becoming more and more my almost indispensable.
But in life‚ nothing is that easy. My moment was taken away from me and replaced with another one. One‚ that shattered all my life… and laid bare… everything.

I can now feel him through his pants. Hot and thick‚ throbbing. And because of that contact‚ I hear him growl and hiss throaty and I suck in a breath‚ sharply.
His touch is doing ridiculously unexplainable things to me. Things‚ I can´t fight against.
I don´t have the strength to push him away with my hands firmly on his hard pecks because I am too caught in the moment‚ and because I simply don´t want to push him away. Don´t want to…
