After two of his teammates fall prey to the curse, Gage Collier realizes he’s got worse things to worry about than the power of the curse alone. He’s got his mother to fear, and the woman is on a mission. When a columnist spills the beans that the curse is in play and there’s only one victim left to be had, Gage’s mother spins a web designed to trap him into being its third victim and give her the grandbabies she’s been wanting. Though the bait she sets is tempting, Gage has no interest in falling in love. With his mother strategizing against him, Gage probably doesn’t stand a chance, but he’ll go down fighting before he takes this hit.

ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars
Game Clincher is book 3 in the Triple Play Curse by Lori Ryan. Each book in this series is a standalone novella but reading in sequence give you more insight to the “Curse” and what the players do with their superstitions and rituals.
Now it’s Gage Collier’s turn but he has more to worry about beside the “Curse”...it’s his mother...she is determined to find him someone to fall in love with, marry and give his mother the grand babies she so desperately wants. If everything goes as his mother plans he will be the last one to fall and complete the Triple Play Curse... or will he?
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a very quick read. One that can be done over a lunch break. This is the third story of the Triple Play Curse. Once a teammate falls in love and becomes engaged or married, it means two more fellow players will fall. Well Barb Collier, Gage's mom, is determined that her son will be the final one this season. She wants grandbabies!! Barb Collier is a cunning woman and boy does she work the curse to her benefit.
Talia and Gage have a delightful journey with a twist. I loved the multiple POV format of this book. The only downside for me was that it was so short. I hope that there is more to the series say the following year and Jason Denali gets a story.
This story should be read by someone over the age of 18 as there are some scenes that may not be appropriate for all.
