Game On by Joanne Rock is an Adult, Second-Chance Romance surrounding baseball!
“He’s home to recover …and rekindle a romance with his first love
After a hitting streak propels him onto a major league roster, Nate Ramsey lands on the injured list. The one bright spot in a frustrating summer is returning home to Last Stand, Texas – until he’s tasked with confronting Keely Harper, an old flame whose business is running roughshod over his grandfather’s farm. Nate accepted it when she ended things five years ago, but he won’t overlook a slight to the rest of the Ramseys. What game is she playing?
Keely has always carried the weight of responsibility for her dysfunctional family, so she can’t regret the way she ended things with Nate. Cutting him loose to pursue his dreams was the kindest thing she could have done for a man with talent to take him far beyond Last Stand. Except now he’s back, and the fireworks between them haven’t faded a bit. If she gives into the temptation of a kiss, will she be able to let him go again once his injury heals and baseball wants him back?”

How I Read It: eARC from NetGalley
*Disclaimer: I requested a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
Looking for a super quick sports romance?
Game On follows an injured baseball player who regrets every moment away from a girl who left him for his dreams. But now that he’s away from the field, they rekindle the spark they once had.
I read this as a standalone, and I don’t think I missed anything by not reading the first book in the series. It was a fun, easy-going story that I flew through in half a night.
The main female character does suffer with some harder family issues, and watching her come back from it all and finally letting herself come first was a hopeful ending.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
