Book: The Game
Author: Anna Bloom
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 7th June Goodreads
When Alyssa Rivers accepts the coveted trainer's position with England’s top cricket team, The Red Cats, she knows it's going to be nothing short of hard work.
A woman in a man’s world, Lyssa not only has to prove she is the right person for the job, but she must earn the respect of cricket’s most elite players, including the surly team captain, Jase Willis. Known for his less than cooperative attitude on and off the pitch, he has the power to end her career before it’s even started … if she doesn’t end his first.
In a game where there is no room for big egos or bearing grudges, Lys and Jase are going to have to find a way to work together ... but can the woman who sacrificed everything for love find a way to reach the man whose only love is the game?
4* read.
This is my first book by this author. I will start by saying I hate cricket, I find it boring to watch and it just doesnt interest me at all in fact it's probably top of my most hated sports, so I wasn't really show how I'd get on with this book. I'm glad I gave it a go. Yes cricket is part of the story but it doesnt detract away from the actual story. It would have probably helped if I knew a bit more about cricket so I could understand that part a bit more but it wasn't to hard to get the overall idea of what it meant.
The two main charaters are both likeable and connectable which is a main thing I look for in a read. I enjoyed the banter between them and watching them work together. It was great going on their journey with them.
A great read by a new author to me, I look forward to more.
