Perfect Game tells the story of Scott and Carrie.

It's one of those love stories where you truly believe that you can win over the hot Major League man of your dreams and where even the farthest of things seem reachable!

Author Collette West writes a compelling and invigorating tale of two imperfect individuals who battle against the odds set before them.

Scott Harper is our badboy first baseman

Another one hit out of the park by Collette West! I’ve kept up with her books since Night Games, her first New York Kings release, and have to say the stories just keep getting better. Perfect Game was amazing from beginning to end. I was busy when I first started reading it and had to keep putting it down. That was driving me nuts because I was really caught up in the story and hated having to wait to read more. I can’t say enough how much I LOVED this book! LOVED Scott! He is solidly at the to ...more

Tiffany's Review:

I love baseball so this was the "perfect" book for the lady baseball fan! The reader gets a glimpse into the life of a Major League Baseball family. Carrie is the granddaughter of the owner of the New York kings. She has grown up around the game and knows that is where her passion lies. However, she didn't expect to fall in love with one of the most popular players...Scott. Scott's character is exactly the way I pictured a major league "player"! Scott finds himself not being ab

I think Collette West gets better and better with each book she makes for the New York Kings. Just as the story gets complicated and steamier – the mystery is finally getting solve, or so we think…

Nevertheless, I was looking forward for both Drake and Scott’s book, and having Scott first was just awesome. This man’s whoring days are over when, thanks to a hacker, naked selfies are up in the open, making a new scandal for the New York Kings. He might have a grand time taking those photos, but he

I've been a big fan of Collette West's sports romances ever since I read Night Games and Game Changer, and with each book, I fall more and more in love with the New York Kings! Just please, don't ask me to choose a favourite because I don't think I can! :P

Boy did Scott Harper really get himself into a mess. I've met Harper in previous books featuring members of the fictional New York Kings, and while he was eye candy, I had no idea he'd be such a huge catalyst for changes at the Kings. The story started off a little oddly but I was hooked by the end of the book.

Initially when I started reading I felt as if there was some back story to how Scott and Carrie met that I was missing. As the story continued, the first 30-40% really seemed to drag. I wa

Perfect Game is the fourth book in the Adult sports romance series, Night Games. The series each focuses on a different player on the baseball team, the New York Kings. Perfect Game focuses on Scott, who is a notorious womanizer. At this point, I am thinking that practically all the New York Kings are. The books are each complete standalones, but I will warn you that this one picks up right in the middle of a scene so

I love this series. Being a HUGE baseball fan this series is right up my alley. Ms. West has an amazing way to pull you into the story going into perfect baseball details. Perfect Game is by far the best read in the series. So many elements brought this one together. Scott and Carrie, Alex and Bobby, Bobby's story alone is heartbreaking and lets not forget all the drama surrounding the Kings.

Unusually for me, I had not read the previous books in the series, but I intend to rectify that situation as soon as I have time. It was a brilliant read as a standalone, but I have no doubt that I missed nuance due to having no back stories for the characters. Oh well, another treat to come reading them in order!

Sports romances are a huge hit with me, because they give context to the storyline, but are generally not too te

My Thoughts:

I've been wanting to read this series for awhile, so when the chance came to read Perfect Game, I sorta jumped on it. I enjoy books like this with the guy who learns what he really wants in life is something real rather than fleeting. And this one was definitely enjoyed!

The way everything started was after their first meeting, so we didn't even get to experience all of that buildup, but we did see the aftermath. Scott a

Scott: seemingly unapologetic for his sexcapades, doesn't do relationships, that is until he caught the perfect girl, now he is scared to reach for it.

Carrie: Strong minded, career woman, lusted often after Scott, she has secrets

The Perfect Game is an emotional rollercoaster ride of anger, lust, and love. The writing is engrossing and kept me turning the pages hoping for some good outcomes and happy moments. The way Collette West wrote the relationship between Scott the playboy baseball player i

I love a book with sports in it. These was my first time reading from this author and I will be checking her other books. Carrie lived and breathed Baseball. When she lands a Jon as Club Reporter for the New York King's that's her this is what she has wanted. Scott Harper is the sexy, bad boy of the team, but he is one of the Best hitters and First Baseman for the Kings. He is also known as the Love 'em and Leave 'em kind of guy.

One of the best books I've read in a few weeks. I love a good sports romance with a guy that can be redeemed. In this case Scott Harper is that guy. Known for his on the field plays and his off the field antics, it all comes to a head during the off season when his personal cell phone is hacked and his very private selfies are leaked to the public.

I'm speechless. This book is BONKERS lol I'm NOT joking.
So many things happen I don't even know where to begin? So I won't. This is fanfiction and telenovela and sports romance hybrid at it's finest (this is a compliment).
Just be aware that, again, your suspension of disbelief must be sky high.

Scott Harper has some fences to mend and a reputation that has just swan dived right down the pan – because when his phone is hacked and his none too discrete selfies end up going viral on the internet it isn’t just his personal parts that are the talk of the town it is those of the ladies that are accompanying him.
Never one to play the PR game, he has managed to ride out much of the storm without having to deal with the press directly but what this die hard commitment phobe doesn’t know, is th

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Perfect Game is the newest New York Kings book by Collette West. Each one of these books can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading these in order if you can as the characters are interconnected and some things will be spoiled by reading them out of order. I was really looking forward to Scott and Carrie's story, and though I was frustrated with these two at times I really ended up enjoying their story.

I don't normally go for a sport romance book but every now and then one comes along and it peeks my interest. I decided to give Perfect Game a go and even after the rocky start I was pleased at this pick- in the beginning.... Sadly, I couldn't get past the beginning. It all felt like the beginning to me. Even realizing at 30% I've only read THIRTY PERCENT and nothing truly was happening but the same repetitive conversations. Here is where I started skimming. When I FIN

For someone who doesn’t watch baseball in real life, I am quite obsessed with Collette West’s New York Kings. This series keeps getting better and better, adding overarching themes and story-lines that ties each individual standalone together, creating a series that I cannot seem to get enough of. Perfect Game focuses on Scott Harper, the scandalous and incredibly charismatic first baseman, and Carrie, the King’s house reporter with a little secret.
This story has everything I have come to expect

Perfect Game is the fourth book in this series, some would say these books can be read as a stand alone but honestly you will get such a better experience with the series if you read them all. In the following order are the other books in this series: Night Games, Game Changer, and then Game On.
This book was one of my favorites in the series and the first one I have given a 5 stars too! Don't worry the other books were 4 star reads for me but something about this one pulled me in more and I have

As a fan of sports-themed romances I've quickly come to count on Ms. West's baseball series for its perfect balance of love and vividly depicted sports action. Her characters are relatable with journeys to HEA that are richly rewarding. Through each book each ball player has left me with a smile on my face, but from his very first appearance in this series I've been enamored of the sweet playboy with a heart of gold, Scott Harper, like no other.

Living in Ireland pathetically means our men live and breathe rugby and football *yawn* so I most definitely like living vicariously through my books for sports with the New York Kings baseball team being at the top of my list. I was apprehensive about reading Scott Harper's story being that in previous books his character came across as a strutting penis with an ego the size of the Chrysler building and little to no substance upstairs in the brain department, well after having read

Perfect Game by Collette West is not the typical book I read, but it was enjoyable all the same. This is a sports romance novel that is heavier on the romance than the sports, which is why it worked for me. I enjoy stories driven by characters and the events that change them. In this case, we follow the lives of Scott Harper and Carrie McKenzie as they share with the reader their romance told through their alternating perspectives.

First the romance. Scott and Carrie have a palpable tension but t

Collette West has created this misfit band of brothers that are all passionate about baseball and their women. I cannot get enough of her New York Kings books and I think that Collette's sports romances are some of the best on the market. Her ball players are hilarious and endearing - I have not met a player yet that I didn't enjoy. I honestly wish I could find a New York Kings shirt. I would wear it proudly because I love this team and all the people attached to it. The tough part would be deci ...more

This was a book that I enjoyed reading as Carrie and Scott work to overcome their insecurities to be together. The world of competitive sports and baseball don't make it easy for them to do this, especially when the rules say no fraternizing between reporters and players. It becomes even more difficult when the player is a player of women as well and his naked conquests are broadcast for all to see. With someone on the team out to get and ruin his hitting streak, it is difficult to know who to t ...more

Perfect Game was a great light hearted read, the book was long but it was well developed and had a catchy storyline. I thought the main characters were a good match for one another. Scott needed a woman who wasn’t intimidated by his reputation and Carrie was just that woman. The sex scenes were hot, I enjoyed reading about the hook ups ! I must say I liked Scott, he is the reformed manwhore, he wanted to dedicate himself to just Carrie and he made an effort to prove that. “I’m not some romantic ...more

Really loved this book. Scott the manwhore of the New York Kings meets his match in Carrie the new clubhouse reporter. They get together in Panama while Scott is there playing preseason games & Carrie is covering them for the team sport station, but once isn't enough for Scott which is usually his thing. Scott is going through some difficulties though because someone hacked his phone & made nude selfies with his bed mates public. Carrie is dealing with the constant pressure on her from her famil ...more

Collette 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 ...more
