Blog Tour Guest Post & Giveaway: INSIDE GAME by Collette West!

Inside Game by Collette West
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: July 10th, 2015

Third baseman Drake Schultz is the undisputed bad boy of the New York Kings. So it's no surprise when Major League Baseball suspends him for taking performance-enhancing drugs. Furious with their superstar, the front office issues an ultimatum: either work with their sober companion or kiss the rest of his quarter-billion-dollar contract goodbye. Cocky and arrogant, Drake resists being saddled with a live-in babysitter—even one he's insanely attracted to.

Drake is Eva Sloane's first celebrity client as a substance abuse counselor, and she knows she's in trouble when he starts tempting her at every turn. The way he looks at her is as hot as sin, but she refuses to become his new drug of choice. Slowly, she helps him realize he has to face the demons from his past and heal his tortured spirit before he can even think about satisfying any craving he has for her.

The Top 5 Sports Romance Movies I've Seen

1. Fever Pitch

A contemporary romantic comedy about a successful woman who thinks she's finally met the perfect guy. Everything seems ideal until baseball season begins, and she has to compete with his first true love: the Boston Red Sox.

Starring: Drew Barrymore, Jimmy Fallon

Drew and Jimmy are two of my favorite celebrities, and their winning personalities make me smile every time I watch this baseball movie.

2. Trouble with the Curve

An expert but aging baseball scout is joined by his daughter on his latest trip. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each reveals long-held truths about their past.

Starring: Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake

This one's worth it for the shirtless JT lake scene alone.

3. The Cutting Edge

She's a rich and refined pairs figure skater whose prima donna attitude has her skating solo. He's a brash, blue-collar hockey champion with a new injury and no future. With nothing in common but their dream of reaching the Olympics, Kate and Doug are each other's last resort. Reluctantly, they join forces, but its not long before the barbs – and sparks – start flying as the unlikely pair skate towards the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance at a medal...and a chance at love.

Starring: Moira Kelly, D. B. Sweeney

This flick is one of my all-time favorites. There's something about a big, tough hockey player finding his sensitive side—plus the chemistry between these two is off-the-charts hot!

4. Bend It Like Beckham

Two ambitious girls, despite their parents' wishes, have their hearts set on careers in professional soccer.

Starring: Parminder Nagra, Jonathan Rhys Meyers

The kiss between Jess and Joe has to be one of the sweetest ever. Not to mention a young Jonathan Rhys Meyers…Yum!

5. 23 Blast

When a high school football star is suddenly stricken with irreversible total blindness, he must decide whether to live a safe handicapped life or bravely return to the life he once knew and the sport he still loves.

Starring: Mark Hapka, Alexa Vega

This romance will make your heart ache—in a good way! What can I say? I'm a sucker for the loyal, tomboy sidekick getting the guy of her dreams, especially one who stands by her man when things get tough.


About the Author

Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball's biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette's impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.

Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she's not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at

She is the author of NIGHT GAMES, GAME CHANGER and GAME ON.
