Shortstop Rafe Wilson has his routines down to a science. How he ties his shoes, what shirt to wear under his jersey, which foot touches the field first, and how to enter the batter’s box. It works for him. The proof is in his stats. No question; the routine works. Until it doesn’t. When Rafe is left scrambling to figure out what went wrong, he quickly finds the newest addition to his pregame routine. A kiss. And, not just any kiss. Ashlyn Daniels’ kiss to be exact. But, can he convince Ashlyn to be part of his arsenal of “superstitions” that keep his game going? Or will the pregame kiss trigger an even worse superstition?

Game Changer is book 1 in the Triple Play Curse by Lori Ryan. Each book in this series is a standalone but reading in sequence give you more insight to the “Curse” and what the players do with their superstitions and rituals.
First up is Ryan Wilson who has followed routines faithfully but something isn’t working until he goes to a barbecue with friends and he meets Ashlyn Daniels. There is something about her that draws him in and sparks fly, he’s back in sync but maybe he will be the first one to fall to the “Curse”...
Awesome start to the Series!
I received an advanced copy of this book. In this book, the baseball team, The Strikers, are worried about the curse that ends their seasons. If one of them falls in love, then their season will end. Shortstop Rafe Wilson has a set routine, he never changes it. Until one day it stops working. Then he goes to the party of his friends and kisses a girl. The next day he’s back to normal! Now he thinks he has to do it every time, before every game. Will she, Ashlyn, agree to his superstition? Will she think that it it will work and set him back on course? This is a great book, I highly recommend it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a really quick read. I normally enjoy this author's work but this one was just okay for me. For the length of the book, there was a lot of sexual scenes. It can be read on a lunch hour for a quick get-away. There could have been so much more story to this though.
