OMG...Talk about an emotional mess...yes, that was me at 3:25ish AM...Game Changer was the second book in Alleyโ€™s U of J series and they MUST be read in order! It was heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time! I could not put it down!

Mason jumped to the wrong conclusion and ruined everything. Now, could he win her back?

Kay knew better but heart didnโ€™t listen. Would she be able to put all the pieces back together?

Oh Mason!! I know I have done dumb things before, but...yeah...thereโ€™s no

โ€œโ€ฆyou didnโ€™t just break my heartโ€ฆ You broke a part of me that was barely even strong enough to be with youโ€ฆโ€

The second book of the U of J Series picks up right where book one ended, so you must need to read Looking to Score first; and believe me youโ€™ll want to. This college romance has all the angst and all the drama you want to find in this kind of genre.

The first book ended with a huge cliffhanger that left me truly confused and in desperate need of answers, secrets and more secrets that Kay h

My exact words upon finishing this book were "OH EM EFFING GEE ALLEY!!!!!"
True story.
Alley tried to warn us. She gave us a heads up. But I STILL WAS NOT READY FOR THAT ENDING!
I died at the end of Looking to Score, then I came back to life for Game Changer and died all over again. I am officially double dead. First it was the #LTSeffect, now it's the #LiteralGameChanger.
We dive right back in to Mason and Kayla's exactly where Looking to Score left us hanging so you're going to need tissues the s

I was kind of itching to get back in the UofJ world to find out if Kayla and Mason still have a future as a couple.

Game Changer starts where Looking To Score ended. We see how Mason understands he made a mistake breaking up with Kayla and tries to make ammend and to win her back.
I adored how cute and funny our hero is, and loved all the bantering with his friends.

I've found this story really enjoyable, the pace was smooth and kept my attention throughout the book.
I hated to read the end becaus

Is it possible to love a fictional couple too much!!! Holy goodness Kay and Mase are straight FIRE! Alley Ciz has done it again, Game Changer is EPIC and I cannot stress enough how much I need the last book. This is a must read for everyone now!!!

This book, y'all. I loved seeing Mase grovel and how they grew together as a couple. Alley certainly turned up the heat in this one. Like, DAYUM. That one scene...

The secondary characters all get their screen time as well, making them even more lovable than before. I always want to jump in the middle of Alley's books and force these people to be my friends and this series is no different. (I swear that didn't sound creepy in my head.) I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the U of J series!

One word. One syllable. One finite answer and he was gone.

Alley Ciz brings all the angst with book 2 in the U of J series. Looking To Score needs to be read first to understand what is happening.

My heart seriously hurt reading this one. After that epic cliffhanger in book 1 I knew I was in for some pain but poor Mase and Kay, Alley really puts them through the wringer!

I wonโ€™t give any spoilers away but I will say this, if you love new adult, sports romance books that will give you all of the

Touchdown!!! Alley Ciz tackles us hard with ALL. THE. FEELS!!! I am so in love with this book! One thing I absolutely love about Alleyโ€™s books are the puns and movie references she writes! Itโ€™s amazing! Iโ€™m giggling all the time, even when Iโ€™m mad!

Mase has his work cut out for him to try to win his Skittles back after the jumping to conclusions disaster he put her through. But our boy refuses to just โ€œlet it goโ€. < (Ha! See what Alley started?) He wants her and nothing is going to stop him. And

I discovered the ARC for Game Changer in my kindle after finishing a different book at 1:20 AM
- the next thing I know, itโ€™s 4:30 AM and I canโ€™t keep my eyes open any longer. A short nap and I was back up at 7:30 AM to dive back into this crazy awesome experience of a book. YES itโ€™s that freaking good!!!

The Queen of Evil, Alley Ciz, knocked my breathe out with another killer cliffhanger in this one. You canโ€™t be faint of heart to read her books. No her books are a full emotional experience and no

Game Changer is book 2 in the U of J series by Alley Ciz. Book 1 ended on a cliffhanger so make sure you read book 1, Looking to Score, first before you read Game Changer.

Game Changer was a definite 5 star read for me just like book 1. I couldnโ€™t put it down and I canโ€™t wait for book 3. This series is addicting and I love Mase and Kay. In book 1 there was some miscommunication that had me using shouty caps at Alley but in Game Changer the miscommunication is cleared up. I donโ€™t want to give any

Once again Alley has managed to capture me with this story. Game Changer was absolutely perfection and Mase and Kay once again stole my heart.

This book was full of moments that will melt your heart, the right amount of drama and of course the friendship and family moments that I adored.

This is the second book in the UofJ series(it can NOT be read as a standalone) and it picks up right after the devastated ending of Looking to Score(book 1). The beginning of this story broke my heart, seen my gir

Game Changer picks up right where Looking to Score left off.
But, like a cat with a mouse, Alley Ciz decided play with all my emotions and kill me with a slow burning anxiousness. Will they or wonโ€™t they was the question of the hour. My guy Mase pulled out ALL the stops for his girl and oh my swooning heart I was putty in his deliciously calloused hands.
Ciz took the sizzle up to off the charts haaawt with Mase and Kay in this one. Game Changer wouldnโ€™t let me put it down and kept me up way past

Game Changer is book two in the brand new U of J series. The first three books concentrate on Kay and Mason and Alley has done it again with these two, left me totally hanging!

Their story continues on from the first book Looking to Score and if you have read it then you know what went down and if you haven't you seriously need to!

We see all the familiar characters that meet and fell in love with in the first book and one more that you are definitely not going to love!

Can't wait for book 3! Hu

Holy cannoli Alley!! My poor heart! โ™ฅ๏ธ Game Changer picks up right where Looking to Score left us hanging. Mase and Kay are back and their love story continues with more heart and more heat that ever. It hurts yโ€™all, it hurts. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Mason knows he has his work cut out for him to get his girl back. My heart just broke for her, but she was so much stronger than even she knows. GAH! These two are perfect for each other if they can just get it together!!

Book 2 in the U of J series and it was so good. This picks up right where Looking to Score leaves off so make sure you read that first. Loved Mason and Kay even more after reading this story. Mason had to grovel to get his girl back. Will he be able to succeed or is it too late? This book will pull you in from page one and not let you go until the last page and even then, it will stay with you until the next book comes out. December canโ€™t get her soon enough.

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars, it was so good and absolute amazing. It picks up right where book 1 ends. I really didnโ€™t know where the book was going to go. I am glad it went the way it did. There were times when I laughed out loud. There were times when I wicked swooned over things that were said, and not even necessarily over anything to do with Kay and Mase who are the main characters, the bonus characters to me are just as fun as the main characters in this book.

4.5 stars for this, initially fraught second book of Kayla and Mason's story. With the story carrying on immediately from the first book, we know that poor Kay is going to be in bits and that Mase has one hell of a huge humble pie to eat if he ever wants to set their world to rights! With a sterling group of friends around her, Kayla has a steep path to climb to gain the self confidence to value herself as she should, and this has been a massive set back. I loved spending time with Mase's crew. ...more

I was in definite suspense and felt like I was watching the Broncos play with the way I quit breathing and my heart stopped! I need book 3 right now!!

Finally and then another cliffy! Mason and Kay's story picks up right where it left off. Mason realizes how he overreacted and spends alot of time trying to get back into her good graces. Kay is struggling with her past insecurities. I love this world. The characters are funny and the stroy just keeps getting better and better.

So we are back in the #UofJ world, picking up right where that awful cliffhanger ended. Do not remember? Let me refresh your memory, its was when our boy Mase made the wrong assumptions and broke our girls heart. Now that we are all caught up, Mase rather quickly experiences a come to Jesus moment and by that I mean all his friends explain to him what a huge mistake he has made. Thus ensues Mase uphill battle of making Kayla forgive him. But, it wont be so easy. Kayla has locked down emotionally ...more

These characters will steal your heart. You will want to be their friend. I know I do.

I have been following and reading this author since her first book released. With each new book she has somehow managed to make it better than the last one. The case is still the same, the more you read the more invested you become in these worlds. This new series is truly a game changer.

Game Changer is BOOK TWO in this series, and this review may contain spoilers...

Game Changer picks up right where Looking to Score left off. Kay is trying to wrap her head around the fact that Mason just dumped her and her emotions are all over the place. Kay tries to move forward by doing what she loves best and that is hanging out with her friends and cheering. Mason on the other hand is making mistakes on the football field for the first time and is getting crap from his teammates and his friends.

I strongly, strongly recommend reading the first book in the series, " Looking to Score" before reading this book. Book 2 picks up right where book 1 ended in a cliffhanger.

What an emotional roller coaster this book was!! Once I started reading I could not stop!!
I loved the chemistry between the main characters!! I also really enjoyed the camaraderie between other characters in the book. This is one of the rare books I have read where there was support for the characters.

Kayla went through alot of emotions in this book but she had started to over come them.

With book 2 of the UofJ series, we pick up right where book 1 left off. Mase makes an epic douche move, and Skittles is left heartbroken. I felt for Kayla after everything we learned about in book 1. Granted, she is not the most open and forthcoming person, but as we learn more and more, I can understand why. But once Mason realizes the magnitude of his error, he grovels and grovels hard. Kayla doesn't just instantly welcome him back with open arms, and honestly, I like her character even more f ...more

Is it possible to give this like 1 billion stars at the same time and take it away all the same time? Because if so I totally would. I knew going into this book I was going to yell like I always do at the very end, thank you again for always doing this to us. I did not think I could love caveman and skittles more than I did.

Well, that's this book(series) I can't get enough of Kay and Mase. All the characters play such an important role in the way this book develops that you just want the whole lot of them to get their own books too.

When I finished this book, my first thought was: I have to wait until December to see what happens next?! GAH!

I want more, and I want it now. This book was more than I imagined it being, and I had pretty high expectations for it (because hello, it's an Alley Ciz book, and she ALWAYS turns out top-notch content). Mason and Kayla are seriously just so perfect for each other, but I was SO mad at Mason at the end of the first book and how he handled their relationship. You get to see how he tries to
