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.

    4 ½ stars – Contemporary/Sports Erotic RomanceThoughts Before ReadingNOT that I'm complaining at all about the masculine perfection of this cover 'cause HELLO, just look at those mouthwateringly yummy shoulders and bicepsGRRR! But, don't baseball players usually have a little more junk in their trunk and thicker thighs? I think I have an obligation to read this (as purely scientific study of course) to find out. *naughty grin*Thoughts After ReadingAfter careful review and scientific analysis, [...]

    4 Steamy StarsChanging the Game is the second book in Jaci Burton's Play by Play series. I was apprehensive about this book. I wasn't sure Ms. Burton could take an unlikable character, Elizabeth Darnell, from The Perfect Play, and make her not only likable, but also the next heroine in the series. I needn't have worried. Ms. Burton exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed reading this book. Just like in The Perfect the Play, the characters were richly developed, engaging, and lovable. Well, almost [...]

    Question: Could Jaci Burton top her fabulous sports romance, The Perfect Play with her latest, Changing the Game? Ohh, it was good, it was closebut unfortunately it fell just a tad short of 5 stars for me.JB had an uphill battle with this one, mostly because she had to make a very unlikable character from the previous book (sports agent Elizabeth Darnell) into a likable one. But I'm happy (and a bit surprised) to say that I think she accomplished that. She gave the tough, independent career woma [...]

    Let us take a moment to appreciate the deliciousness that is this cover.*droolsappreciates*As much as I loved Mick's story, his brother Gavin's was not as good as it should have been. The plot was weak and the characters were flat for the first half of the book. It was definitely steamy & the end was good but I was disappointed. 3.5 starsI am however still really looking forward Jenna's story with the super sexy & flirty, Tyler!Also, again with the COVER!!! *clicks to appreciate*

    3.4 Fiery STARS"Sometimes your world falls apart. And it’s okay for you to let people in and let them see you crumble."So I read this back in 2014, but for some reason I wanted to go back to it, so here I am doing a proper review this time. So first things first, I haven’t read book 1. Not the first time I read this series, not now. For some reason I just never was interested into read the first book, and since they are basically standole where you just meet the characters in the previous bo [...]

    เซ็กส์ซีน เซ็กส์ซีน แล้วก็เซ็กซ์ซีนเต็มไปหมดเลย ซ้ำไปซ้ำมาตลอด ส่วนพลอตเรื่องก็เบาไปหน่อย แทบจะไม่มีอะไรเป็นชิ้นเป็นอันเลย นอกจากความร้อนแรงของเนื้อเรื่อง(ที่เราว่ามันก็เท [...]

  • Choko

    Muuuuuuch better than the previous one! At least as far as the "sizzle" is concerned. There was history between the characters and something implied to build on. A quick and sexy read for fans of contemporary romantic erotica. And fans of St. Louis sports :-)

  • Splage

    Once again the cover is hot and I knew that I would be moving this book to the top of my TBR list because I was drooling and sports guys are my thing. As I began the book I was having similar feelings that I did with book 1, The Perfect Play, basically a good, hot read with lots of sex, but the story didn't overwhelm and engage me as I had hoped it would. Changing the Game might have started that way, but its momentum built into a page turner that had a lot more depth with some emotional moments [...]

  • Keri

    Man I love this coverkes my mouth water. It was good. A lot of sexin and not enough story meat.

  • Booklover1335

    “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” This quote from Elizabeth Barrett Browning is so fitting for how I felt after reading Jaci Burton’s newest addition to her Play by Play series, Changing the Game. Simply put, I LOVED it! In fact I think it is the best Contemporary Erotic Romance I’ve read this year. I have mad love for Gavin and Liz…like, if I had to actually make a list of the things I love about the book, we would be here for a long, long time. I pretty much loved everyt [...]

  • Shannon Stacey

    Jaci and I have been friends a long time, which means I’ve read a lot of Jaci Burton books, and I think Changing The Game is my new favorite. I’ll be honest: I wasn’t sure how Jaci was going to redeem Liz after The Perfect Play, but I love her. And Gavin is so delicious.If you’re looking for an erotic romance that’s the perfect blend of steamy, toe-curling sex and deeply emotional, happy-sigh-worthy romance, Changing the Game is your book.

  • Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog)

    This review was posted at Under The CoversWOW! I devoured this book! It must've been all the excitement and anticipation, or maybe just the fact that for the first 50% - 60% the chemistry and raw sensuality between Liz and Gavin was just amazing! Of course, there's the sinful cover to consider too, which I kept picturing every time I read about Gavin. I definetely shouldn't have started the book in the morning BEFORE going to work and then reading DURING LUNCH. You do not want to have your co-wo [...]

  • Natalia815

    Historia sencilla. La pareja protagonista es una maravilla y eso que odie, mucho a Liz en el primer libro, por lo que hizo a Tara y a su hijo.El que me ha cabreado mucho es Mick, el hermano del protagonista y pareja de Tara. ¡Que cabezón! Vale, Liz cometió un error, pero ha pedido perdón un montón de veces. ¡Superalo ya, y pasa página! Y Gavin es un encanto, aunque a veces se deja influenciar por personas que tiene alrededor.Tengo ganas de leer el siguiente, que si mi olfato no me falla, [...]

  • Jennifer

    Same as book 1: Storyline - 3 stars Hotness Factor - 5+++ Stars! This series is all about the sex so far. I'm not feeling the connection between the couples just yet.

  • Amanda

    “Honey, love is always complicated. If it was easy, there’d be no fun when you win at the end.” Ok… so I do realize that I’ve been reading this series way out of order. I started off with book 8 (Straddling the Line) and now here I am back at book 2, Changing the Game.I didn’t particularly think this series was anything worth writing home about after I read Straddling the Line so I went into Changing the Game with pretty low expectations. I’m happy to say that I was pleasantly surp [...]

  • Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

    Jaci Burton hit this one out of the park!!! GOOOOOD GAWD Gavin is one of the sexiest men I have read about. He goes up there with Cord McKay from Lorelei James' Rough Rider series, and from me that is saying alot.Because of her actions in The Perfect Play, I didn't think I could like Liz, but JB pulled it off and made me understand her actions and totally like Liz.The smexing was uber hot and some of the best I've read =)Changing The Game is up there with Chasin' Eight as one of my favorite read [...]

  • Pepa

    Entretenido, pero nada más. Para ser erótica es algo más que una sucesión de escenas de sexo. Pero siempre echo de menos que no se profundicen más ciertos aspectos en los que la autora pasa de puntillas, ya que sí, la historia gira alrededor de la atracción sexual de dos personas

  • Sam (AMNReader)

    I'm all over the place with my feelings about this book. (well from 2.5 to 3.5)It was my second Jaci Burton, and I enjoyed the first. I do feel like these have a better level of maturity than most sports romances, and I've grown to enjoy the family dynamic quite a bit. Also, the sex in this book was very very delicious. I added one star because of that.That Gavin saw through Elizabeth's tough exterior I loved. He was clearly interested in her, his straight dirty talk was yummy, but what I didn't [...]

  • S a n d r a

    leersinlimites/2016/09Si algo es evidente es que este libro no es para todos. Aunque no creo que llegue al punto de la erótica (tal vez porque leí libros de este género que eran más del estilo sexo porque sí y no considero que este entre en ese saco), sí que tiene una gran cantidad de páginas con contenido sexual. Dejando ese aspecto de lado, me gustó más que el primero, por los protagonistas y por la relación tan complicada que tienen. En el primer libro todo fue más sencillo, más t [...]

  • Robin *loves sexy books*

    Probably 4 or 4.5 stars but I rounded up because of all the smokin hot sex!! Wow.Good story but the situation with Mick got old pretty fast you'd think he wouldn't hold such a grudge and be such an ass. I really liked Gavin and Elizabeth even though Gavin basically had to be hit over the head to realize how he and Liz actually felt. Took him a while but he got there.Can't wait for the next book. I've really liked Jenna so far. And mix her tattoos and piercings with a cocky as hell and super hot [...]

  • Sonja

    Well. That was quite the read I read the first book in the series, The Perfect Play and thought the same thing. Lots, and I mean LOTS of um yeahThis one literally started out just BOINK! BOINK! BOINK BOINK BOINK! I mean honestly. like JACK RABBITS! I nearly closed it and moved on Seemed kind of depressing that (view spoiler)[ these characters were having so much more sex than me! (hide spoiler)]!! But I stuck it out through the first four boinkers chapters, and it did get better. The characters [...]

  • Jessica

    Wow Gavin really knows what to say to a woman "I think you're worth fighting for, Elizabeth. Even if I'm fighting you for you." after that what else can a man do or say.Elizabeth have been in love with Gavin for years. After one steamy kiss that Lizzie gave him he was intrigued. He wanted to know who she really is and what makes her happy. Gavin never knew how it felt to be in love.He knew no other woman was like Elizabeth.

  • Diana~ (Kiss Me Books)

    If I were to compare The Perfect Play versus Jaci Burton's latest installment, Changing the Game in my opinion of course, I would say I liked Gavin's story with Liz a lot more than Mick and Tara's. Looking back, I felt as if Mick fell in love with Tara way too fast? So it was kind of unrealistic. While at least Liz and Gavin both went into this "thing" between them knowing that it was just a fling and something fun. Or was it really? I guess I have a thing for unrequited love and Liz's love for [...]

    I had heard great things about Jaci Burton and thought I would pick up this book and give it a read. I don't usually start a series at book 2 but that is what I did. I admit to not feeling comfortable with the characters in the first part of the book. I thought oohh another book that is more about sex than story. I also found the characters awkward and not very likable especially Gavin. I think JB was trying to make him light hearted but it just didn't come across, then I thought she was going t [...]

  • Dee

    I think I actually liked this one better than the first (/book/show/83). Quite a few reviewers preferred the first and thought this one fell a little short.Before I started this book I wasn't too sure about Liz's character as she was such a hardcore dragon in the previous book but once we got to see a bit more of her, her background and insecurities I began to like and understand her. I didn't quite gush over Gavin as much as I had over Mick but I did still like him. Although I had loved Mick in [...]

  • Norma

    This was a cute story. I liked it a lot. I didn't want to read it for a long time because I didn't like Liz in the fisrt story, but we get to know her in this one and we see that she's human. She's made mistakes and she's sorry. I liked that she owned up to what she's done and showed remorse.I took a star off for Mick. Every time that idiot was on the page, I wanted to close the book and read something else. I get that he was mad, but after a while he was just a 2 yr old with a tantrum. I did't [...]

  • Lna

    3,5★No he leído muchos libros de este género tan popular, sobre todo a nivel americano, pero puedo decir sin duda que esta autora lo domina a la perfección. Si el 1º libro de esta serie me encantó, este no ha sido para menos. Vaya con Gavin y Elisabeth uff, qué pareja tan explosiva la verdad, aunque es cierto que me ha faltado algún giro en su historia, pues desde el principio se ve que son una relación a pesar de que ellos no lo vean así, y no he notado ninguna parte muy dramática q [...]

  • Awilk -never sleeps-

    I read Jaci Burton when I am in the mood for lots of sexy times, and this book gave me just that.I'm not American, so I don't follow baseball, but there wasn't too much sport talk, so that didn't worry me.The whole way through this book I had a little trouble caring for these characters, but I never disliked them enough for it to take away from my reading enjoyment. Next time I am in the mood for some light, no brain needed smutty reading time, I will read the next in this series that I already [...]

  • Selly - Leggere Romanticamente

    3 stelline e mezzo!Amo i romance con i personaggi sportivi, e anche come scrive questa autrice Peccato che abbia dovuto mettere tutte quelle trombate inutili! Un po' va bene, le apprezzo, ma così sono decisamente troppe! Ha perso una stellina solo per l'eccesso di eros.

  • valee

    Another great installment in this amazing series. I think this is the first series I enjoy on this genre. Well done Jaci Burton, you have a way with words. I still liked much more book 1 though.
