Up until two years ago, I was living large and my life’s priorities were anchored to three things – my NBA stardom, money and celebrity.

I was also a colossal dick.

Until one night turned my world upside down and I suffered unspeakable loss. That event changed the man I was and made me a widowed-single father.

Now I’m a desperate parent trying to raise my specia

My dang heart after reading this book, just omg!! Brooklyn comes into the lives of Garrett and Caleb just when they need her the most. And the rest as they say is history. Brooklyn with Caleb is about the sweetest thing I’ve ever read. Just I think my heart was smiling and just bursting with every scene between them. And then Garrett, a little rough and gruff around the edges but deep down has a heart of gold. To see these three together just seriously my heart. I loved this book and these chara ...more

The heroine seems like the SECOND best.
The hero LOVED his dead wife. And he keeps remembering his wife while talking with the h and also in general.

The h is the main initiator here. She kisses him first and she even asks him to fuck her. But he pushes her away. Then the next day he starts touching her while she is asleep and then they have sex.
This constant hot and cold behavior of the H sucked.
The h’s desperate act was unlikable.

(view spoiler)

Also I didn’t feel any love from the H. He keeps whining about how his life is so unhappening. He has to look after his special need kid, his wife is dead, blah blah. He envies his previous life when he was a player and had fun.

(view spoiler)

I have read so many good boss nanny romance that this seems pale in comparison.

Game Changer is the first book in Sierra Hill’s Change of Hearts series, which is a spin-off of the Courting Love series. Although we get to see more of characters from the Courting Love series, it’s not necessary to have read the series to understand Game Changer. Game Changer is a complete standalone and can be read without having read any of Sierra Hill’s prior books.

From the start, Game Changer had me hooked. It was a sweet story, yet there was plenty of emotion to deal with thro

So much potential here for a one of a kind sports-romance with all the bells and whistles, too. Except it didn't really reach its potential for this reader. It was lacking in areas I felt needed so much more and in the end felt so incomplete.

Garrett wasn't my favorite in the role of the H -- in fact, I didn't much care for him for most of the book. Oh, he had his good points and I won't deny he was a great father to Caleb, and one whom had to learn that chore the hard way. But he def

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is the sweet story of a man who falls hard for his nanny. Single dad Garrett lost his wife two years ago - in an accident which left his son with a traumatic brain injury. Caring for Caleb is a full time job and as a successful college basketball coach, Garrett can’t manage without a live-in nanny. When Garrett hires Brooklyn, a graduate student studying child psychology, he doesn’t know what to do with the attr

I really enjoyed this book. Garrett is a single father to his special needs son, Caleb and I think that is why this book really pulled me in. I am a mother to a special needs daughter and I know all the struggles that he is going through. The questions, the stares, sometimes having to do everything for your child. I have been there and doing that and I could really relate with Garrett on this part of his life. It is hard and then when you are doing it yourself, that makes it even harder. Finding ...more

Sierra Hill delivered a heartwarming and sweet romance that will fill your romantic heart. This was my first book by Sierra and I was blown away. How have I not read anything by her before? I need to remedy that.

The characters were caring and loveable and the story was relateable. I was pulled in from that very first page. As I turned the pages I fell harder and harder for these two. And that special sweet boy took a piece of my heart. I loved everything about this book and I can’t w

This book is adorably, heartbreakingly awesome.

Coach Garrett Parker has had a very tragic few years.
Brooklyn is about to enter grad school when she hears of a summer job nannying for Coach Parker and his son with traumatic brain damage.

This story was very easy to read. Smoking hot. Achingly heartbreaking. And awesome fabulous! I highly recommend!
❤~🌟 4.5 WINSOME STARS! ❤~🌟~❤
She’s the balm to my soul and a light in my darkest corner.”

If there’s one trope that makes my heart flip inside my chest, it’s the single daddy/nanny tale, and when you add into the mix a sports-themed romance with a hunkilicious ex-baller struggling to raise a special needs child, then I am a TOTAL GONER!

GAME CHANGER is first captivating  installment in Sierra Hill’s Change of Heart series and a spinoff of her Courting Love series, but I can full attest tha/>/>

Game Changer by Sierra Hill is the first book in the Change of Heart series and it had me completely sucked into the story from the very beginning. I love a good sports romance and nanny book and this combined the two beautifully. A sweet romance with plenty of swoon and so many feels that made it nearly impossible to put down.

Garrett and Brooklyn were a dream. I loved their chemistry and their connection leaped off the pages. Theirs was more of a slow burn when it came to the romanc

Game Changer tells us the story of Garrett, he’s a widowed single father to Caleb, his young son with a disability. Caleb is the most adorable little boy you could ever meet, he’ll worm his way right into your heart, just like he has mine.

Garrett is not book boyfriend. He seems to be a great father and coach. Where I see him failing was in communication with Brooklyn. She was also poor in communication when she overheard things and assumed but for most part she was a strong caring woman, especially for her age.
I totally liked how Caleb was nurtured by both Garrett and Brooklyn. Caleb was a special kid.

Good read

I loved coach Garrett when I first read him in Jump Shot and I immediately wanted his story! I wanted to know his pain and wanted him to find his HEA and Sierra delivered that and soooo much more with this beautiful story!

Garrett hasn’t had the easiest life and has faced the worst losses but the athlete in him doesn’t allow him to ever stop charging forward! He makes mistakes but has grown to learn from them! All it took was the love a woman to change the game for him! Brooklyn is a young woman

This was my first book by this author, but it won’t be my last. Garrett and Brooklyn had such a realistic, somewhat painful story. Garrett had to learn to let go of his guilt to find the good in life, while Brooklyn had to learn that being a strong woman doesn’t mean that you can’t also lean on a good man once in a while. They had their ups and downs, but Brooklyn was no doormat and let Garrett know that she wouldn’t be used until her convenience wore out for him. Because of that, they both had ...more

He was an amazing dad and Brooklyn was a great addition to their family. Her love for them was real and I felt for her at the end. I’m glad they found their happy ending. This wa ...more

He has a lot he is dealing with and Brooklyn walks into his and Caleb's life when they need her the most.

Game Changer is a sweet and heartwarming story, that will totally pull on your heartstrings. Love how devoted of a father Garrett was to Caleb, as being a parent of a child with special needs is not easy. It takes such love and patience, and Garrett was simply amazing. And Brooklyn, she fit into their world perfectly. Seeing the growth that Caleb made while she was taking care of him, was incredible to see. She was a special person and seeing the bond those two formed togeth

This story was so cute!! I’m a total sucker for single dad romances, KEEP THEM COMING! Brooklyn was an absolute sweetheart, she was a sweet to Caleb and other around her. She was a great character and an amazing fit for Garret. Brooklyn definitely broken Garret’s hard exterior and made him realize life is too short to just waste it. Garret was a really great dad, from the beginning of the story. His life completely revolved around his son’s life. I really liked Brooklyn and Garret together. They ...more

Sierra Hill wrote her first full-length romance after a corporate acquisition led her to a stint of unemployment, offering her some quality writing time.

She loves writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain who constantly shout for their own love story to be told.
