Jilly is someone who would catch your attention reading Game Changer (Brooks & Sasha’s story). He’s one of those I’d fondly referred to as gentle giants. He is big and shy. It didn’t help that he’d like to be left alone, and enjoys his solitude.
When he was perceived to be broken hearted, the New York King decided to overhaul his image by doing a dream date contest, granting the winner a night she couldn’t forget with Jillie. But instead of getting excited, he was getting anxious and worried, all this PR stuff was getting into his comfort zone.
But it all turned out great for him, when he found out who his date was – Hailey Harper. The girl who looked like Sasha, and the one who he couldn’t forget in high school. She’s here in New York. She entered the contest and won. She’s his date. He had once let her go, and this time, he’d make sure he won’t make that mistake again.
Hailey might have entered the contest in a spur of a moment decision, but she just wanted to see how is Jilly holding up. She had no intention to stay, ruin his life or cost him problems. She’s now a romance author, writing under a pen name, and she’s writing books all about sexy players on the Kings…
How will Jilly react when he finds out about this? How will the Kings react?
I always loved second chance romance, and for Jilly to have this kind of plot would be a bonus, because just him experiencing an HEA is all I ever wanted. However, when I was half-way through the book, I was like… WTF… is this…
AM I READING THE BEHIND THE SCENES DRAMA OF THIS BOOK?
There were a lot of complications once her secret was out – suddenly, it wasn’t just Jilly, but the whole team was on her. Their love life and sex life was out in the open, and some of them thought he was feeding it to her, good thing the girls were more understanding.
Jilly was torn between her and the team, but in the end, he chose wisely. Between his injury and his love life, his life was no longer ‘peaceful’. It was in chaos and it was a bit crazy. All he ever wanted was the girl, but how can he tell her that? How can he trust her after what she did?
As for Hailey, there were times when you’d wanted to smack her just for her self-sacrificing attitude and not letting her emotions out in the open. I mean, she’s the best thing that ever happened to Jilly, and if she was just honest enough, or perhaps made the first move – it would have saved them the time, effort, trouble and heartaches. What do you think?
However, there’s trouble inside the Kings, and I can’t wait till the next book to find out how are they finally going to approach this trouble…
Is this fact or is this fiction? I think the question had me torn than the budding romance here in this novel. Nevertheless, I’m glad after everything that both of them have been through in this book, all those trials, and scrutiny that they have encountered, they have made it out stronger, and totally different person. Indeed, love can make you do things you can’t possibly imagine yourself doing.
