Blog Tour: Night Games by Collette West + Giveaway!

Hi lovelies! Today, I bring you an exclusive excerpt from Collette West’s new sport romance novel, Night Games available now! But first, a little detail about the book and the author.


P.S. I think the cover is absolutely stunning! I love the photograph, the font, EVERYTHING. Most adult novel covers are a little cheesy and scandalous, but this – in my opinion – is perfection!

The moment Grey Kelleher locks eyes with All-Star shortstop Chase Whitfield, she’s a goner. For years, she’s watched him play on TV, and now she’s gazing at his hard, lean body across a bar in her hometown.

Grey’s crush on Chase goes all the way back to his rookie season. So when she approaches him for an autograph, she’s startled by what a jerk he can be.

Chase is no mood to humor his fans, even one as alluring as Grey. He’s in the last year of his contract and stuck having to prove himself on a minor league team. He’s only there to rehab an injury, nothing more.

But when Grey tells him off, Chase realizes her fiery spirit may be just the distraction he needs to take his mind off not being in the majors. His heart is safe. No one’s going to break his streak as baseball’s most eligible bachelor. Not even someone as irresistible as Grey.


Collette WestCollette 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

He finally releases me, and I try not to look at the muscles in his chest as they heave up and down. My hair must have gotten him wet because his naked torso is glistening in the sun. “I need you to tell me why you did what you did.”

“Wow, you’re giving me the benefit of the doubt?”

“For now. Start talking.”

I’m so freakin’ mad at the way he’s treating me. Like he’s the one running the show, telling me when I can and cannot speak. Who the hell does he think he is?

“I’m waiting, Grey.”


“You don’t want to test me like this.”

“What? Am I about to experience Chase Whitfield’s dark side? Not so perfect after all, huh?”

He’s on top of me in a heartbeat. I can’t even breathe as he presses me to the ground, the morning dew seeping through the back of my shirt. If he gets grass stains on it, I’ll kill him. I love this shirt. But all such thoughts immediately vanish from my mind when he places his hands on the both sides of my head, his breath warm against my lips.

“You’re going to tell me what happened, and you’re going to tell me now.” He’s being all demanding and shit. I should hate it, but it’s such a turn-on. I’ve never been around a guy who’s so used to getting what he wants. He’s powerful and strong. He could be anywhere with anybody, but he’s here with me.


How about that glimpse of Night Games, huh? Talk about a little steamy!

Sowie. I could not help myself. That ^^ was just perfect. I’ll definitely be adding Night Games to my TBR list. What about you? Let me know your thoughts! I crave them!

Goodness. Didn’t I sound like some eternal being of the night?
