My name is Jace London,
And I may have screwed up.

I’ve always been the guy who had it all.
Privilege, entitlement, and a life of luxury.
But after one college night gone tragically wrong,
Nothing has ever been the same.

Everyone thinks I should be happy.
With a trust fund like mine, who could be sad?
But no one knows what’s going on with me,
Or the nightmares that keep me awake at

CHANGE MY GAME: is a full-length standalone, second chance romance and part of the 'North Haven University Series' by Kelsey Clayton. Spoken in 'dual perspectives.' Get ready for childhood friends Jace and Paige's story.

Anything by this author and I crave it like my next breath, even though it arrived on my kindle in 2020 I wanted to wait until the new year before I became reacquainted with my ki

Woah. I knew Change My Game would be intense- that this would be a painful and emotional ride. Kelsey has promised us a darker, more painful story- and we got it! But wow, this was not the journey I expected for Jace- it was even better. Jace had me all tied up in knots, and his love story had me in tears more than once. Turbulent, emotionally intense, and heart wrenching, Change My Game is a second chance love story about heartbreak and healing, a story both devastating and hopeful, a story tha ...more

“Change My Game” is the second book in the “North Haven University” series by the author Kelsey Clayton. Told in dual perspectives , get ready to meet Jace and Paige!

Ever since I read that ending in the last book of the series , I knew Jace’s story was going to be an all time favourite of mine. And this book stood up to every one of my expectations ! Jace has one hell of a tale to tell you and there is no way you can miss this high school ro

Jace London is hitting rock bottom and all he wants is to numb the pain and the memories at any cost. But his best friend isn't about to lose him just yet, even if it means bringing in one last resort, the girl who left Jace without any explanation, Paige McAllister.

Second-chance romances are my favorite trope, but that wasn't even the whole reason why I loved this book. This story was so emotional and felt so real and raw at times, that it was impossible not to connect with these characters and

After reading Corrupt My Mind and discovered this gifted author, I was more than eagerly expecting the release of this new story. Did I drop everything just to read this book? Oh, you bet I did! The clock was ticking, the pages turning, page after page, chapter after chapter….Imagine my surprise, when I realized it was almost morning and I was devouring the last chapter.....So, you can probably tell I REALLY enjoyed this book!

My first read of the new year came out SWINGING, and I'm all here for it!! Kelsey warned us that this book was darker and way more intense than we're used to reading from her, and the woman was not playing around by any means. I have read and loved all of this authors work, but this book, these two soulmates, are her BEST work.

Through the Grace Haven Prep series, we've seen Jace grow up through the eyes of our other beloved characters, but he's in such a dark place. He is literally just a walki

"We are all meant to be afraid of the monsters.
To run from the demons that want to pull you underwater and drown you in misery.
But Jace embraced them."

I'm so happy that I decided almost a year ago to take a chance on Kelsey Clayton's "The Sinner" and from that moment, I was a goner... Kelsey is writting very beautiful stories and even though, they are in the same world, they are so different between them and they are always captivating

An emotional, second chance romance that twisted me up, left me in tears, but gave me the happily ever after I craved. This was a tumultuous romance between a couple who were both facing heart wrenching life changes. It was a one sitting read for me as these characters sucked me in and I was completely invested in their story.

Jace is spiraling. His life is spinning out of control. Carter needs help trying to get his best friend back on track, so he reached out to Paige. She was the girl Jace let

It’s been mere hours since I read this book, and to be quite frank I have no clue what to say. I’ve been left speechless, my emotions have been rocked and I feel like I am at a stand still moment where everything is frozen and I don’t know where to go on to explain how much I loved this book.

This author in my opinion pulled all the punches with this one. This book had to be one of the realest books I’ve read that tackles real life struggles, grief, blame, pain of the realest kind, and heartbrea

Paige gets one phone call from Carter and she knows, though kind of unwillingly, that she has to be the one to try to reach Jace. Her one time something, definitely friend, and more without a precise label. It's been months since Paige left, and being back around Jace (and Carter) is unsettling, but once she sees the state Jace is in, she knows Carter was right to call her. Will Jace let her in? Allow her past his walls?

Change My Game is the second book of the North Haven University series and it was full of surprises. Kelsey Clayton really captured every important moment between these two characters and made their story so enjoyable to read.

The two main characters both have flaws that made them strong. I really enjoyed reading their character development throughout the book. Every moment they had together had me on the edge of my seat and I was left wanting to finally piece a

The thing I love about reading is it makes you feel so many different emotions in such a short span of time and let me tell you Kelsey Clayton made me question myself throughout this whole damn book. I was laughing, I was swooning, I was horny, I was sad, then I was raging and repeat!

Kelsey Clayton's words are breathtakingly intense, and her storytelling so brilliantly constructed that you will find yourself wholeheartedly consumed by every beautiful moment of the journey that she takes you on. Since discovering this extraordinary author last year, I have become OBSESSED with her characters and ADDICTED to the stories that she tells.

After not liking that much the first book in this series I was a little exceptional about this one. I absolutely adored Paige (h), she was brave, confident, strong and caring, she didn't deserve what was going on with her. But I hated Jace (H), he's immature and just thinks about himself. He doesn't deserve her, he wasn't a good friend or boyfriend. (view spoiler) ...more

Ahhh what a way to start 2021!

Can these characters imbed themselves into my soul even further than they already have? Apparently, the answer is yes. The more I read from this universe, the more I fall in love with these characters.

But Jace and Paige? These two had me in knots.

Second chances.

The angst.

The emotions.

I was in new adult heaven, and I never wanted to leave!

For a long time I did not read a book that actually talks about trauma. I do not remember even when I read a book that talks about such a contest.  🤷🏽‍♂️
I think it is the first time.
The story here conveys a different message from all the books.
Mental coping. Drugs, alcohol, to run away from the 'bad' reality of through bad things.  💔
The story is about second chance romance.

My heart was in my stomach from the very first page. Change My Game is a gut wrenching emotional story about redemption, addiction, loss, second chances, and finding yourself at the end of it all.

Kelsey really dove into the underbelly of Jace and Paige and plucked out all of their emotions, bringing forth their depth and letting it drip off the pages so it would sink into your soul.

Kelsey has done it yet again, taking my still beating heart and ripping it from my chest with just her words. This book shattered my mind and soul bringing tears to my eyes from the beginning and then continuing to ruin me until the very end. This book brought out so many emotions that I was not prepared for the onslaught or the way my heart would ache for these characters.

Riveting! I’m so enjoying this new offshoot from the Haven Grace Prep series. Now in North Haven University, this group of young adults are starting to adult, dealing with university, their future, and more serious love affairs.

Jace London, Paige McAllister and Carter Trayland were best friends in high school. Then they went their own ways to college, far away from each other, and one year later, find themselves back in Haven University. Their coming back is due to tragic circumstances but this

Holy Toledo what a story! Another terrific tale from this author, the second half especially, it literally has you on the edge of your seat.

I am not going to lie, Jace nearly drove me up the wall in the beginning but it didn’t last and I ended up liking him a lot. However, I suspect that was a deliberate ploy on the author’s part, well played. He certainly has his issues and although only snippets are gradually given throughout the story the puzzle is worth waiting for it to be pieced together.

Change My Game is my favorite Kelsey Clayton book! Jace and Paige were everything and more! My heart went on a ride I didn't see coming.

Jace London is the guy every girl knows she should stay away from but the one guy you can't. From the outside he's the hot, cocky, arrogant jerk. On the inside he's a little broken and sad. He's the train wreck you need to stay away from but the sweet guy who pulls you in.

When Jace spirals out of control there's only one person who can help him, but can she save

Jace and Paige had history. In high school they were friends that eventually hooked up but went their separate ways when they went to college. She’s back but Jace has demons and she’s dealing with a very emotional family issue. At first he detests her because he’s still pissed off that she left which is very hypocritical of him because it wasn’t like he was waiting for her and also he never defined their relationship. Paige was amazing and didn’t put up with Jace bs but she realized he needed he ...more

This book was a great standalone and I was very fortunate to be given an arc. But boy did this book put my emotions through the ringer. It was heartbreaking and a rollercoaster of emotional turmoil but in the best way! These characters were so complex and layered and you really felt for them and what they were going through. The storyline which is sensitive was written I think with great cafe and I really appreciated that. This book was deeply moving journey of self discovery and healing.

Change My Game starts as an enemies-to-lovers second chance romance, but it turns into something much more. Paige and Jace are the loves of each other's lives, even though it's taken them years to get there and its far frim perfect. Jace is going through some pretty heavy stuff, and at times Paige isn't sure if she's enough to be the one who brings him out of it. This book had me on the edge of my seat.

Oh, My Heck.

The emotional whiplash I had with this book was intense.

I felt just about every emotion on the spectrum and would find myself just staring off reliving a scene or that emotion. I would caution you to not read this when you are already hormonal. Seriously. It hurt as much as it brought joy.

But isn't that a sign of an amazing author? They take you to a world where you live in it, and feel with it?

This is a book about pain, healing, sacrifice, and love.

Least favorite so far (spoiler-ish)

I love this series. And I understand its supposed to be dark and about trauma and all that. The fact that Jace was in love with someone else was difficult but not something that would completely ruin it for me. What did it was the fact that the entire book was about him loving this other chick and basically using Paige to make that hurt less. No. Just NO.
