Game Changer by Rachel Reid


New York Admirals captain Scott Hunter takes his pregame rituals very seriously. In this case, it’s not just a lucky smoothie he’s craving—it’s the man who made it.Pro hockey star Scott Hunter knows a good thing when he sees it. So, when a smoothie made by juice bar barista Kip Grady precedes Scott breaking his on-ice slump, he’s desperate to recreate the magic...and to get to know the sexy, funny guy behind the counter.

Kip knew there was more to Scott’s frequent visits than blended fruit, but he never let himself imagine being invited back to Scott’s penthouse. Or kissed with reckless abandon, never mind touched everywhere all at once. When it happens it’s red-hot, incredible and frequent, but also only on Scott’s terms and always behind his closed apartment doors.

Scott needs Kip in his life, but with playoff season approaching, the spotlight on him is suddenly brighter than ever. He can’t afford to do anything that might derail his career…like introducing the world to his boyfriend. Kip is ready to go all-in with Scott—but how much longer will he have to remain a secret?

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Game Changer is a perfect sports romance!

I was obsessed with watching sports when I was younger, and now I just love to read about athletes falling in love.

In Game Changer, Scott is the captain of his hockey team, and thus is a star in NYC. What no one knows is that Scott has been living in the closet all the years, not even allowing himself hook ups during the season, or in the United States, as he's afraid of being recognized.

Then one day he decides to buy a smoothie, and meets the intriguing smoothie shop employee, Kip. For once in his life, Scott is smitten, hard, and can't resist taking some chances with Kip.

I absolutely love everything about this book! It has it all - hot hockey guy, fun yet awkward normal guy, hiding in the closet, resentment about being hidden away, and having to choose to come out or lose the love of his life.

It also contains some wonderful and important side characters, along with some fun humor. It is well written, absolutely gripping and amazingly emotional. The author does a wonderful job of handling the closeted athlete with accuracy and genuineness.

I highly recommend Game Changer to anyone who loves a good sports romance and I look forward to reading the next book in this series by Rachel Reid!
