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?

This is my first read by Joanne Rock and I’m surprised that she hasn’t crossed my radar before now and I will certainly be checking out other works by her. Game On is book 2 in the Texas Playmakers and I had no problem getting involved in this romance even though I haven’t read the first book in the series. This book has a lot going for it, second chance romance, sports romance and small town romance all play a factor in this love story so I’m sure Nate and Keely’s story will appeal to a very wide audience. Nate and Keely are both afraid that history will repeat itself and they will find themselves once again walking away from each other. Will Keely let Nate back into her heart when he walked away so easily last time and will Nate open up his heart once again to the woman who broke it once before. This couple have a lot of emotional hurdles to jump before they can really admit the true love they feel for each other and I really enjoyed joining their journey as they got to know each other all over again. This book is a great romance with great characters including a very meddling grandfather who seems to be the only one who see’s the love this couple are trying to hide. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

Professional Baseball player Nate Ramsey has returned home to Last Stand, Texas to recover from an injury. He hopes that he can also take the time to re connect and confront his old girlfriend, Keely Harper. From the moment they set eyes on one another again it is clear that there is still an attraction burning brightly between them. I enjoy small town and sports romances so the blurb drew me in. The secondary characters were entertaining and I would expect from the other underlying story line within Game On will lead into the next book. There were times that I felt that the story dragged a little but overall it kept me interested. Will Keely let Nate back in or is the fear that he will leave again be enough to keep the walls she has built in tact? Nate is worried that if he gives in to his feelings, she will just as easily let him go. The miss communication was a tad frustrating at times but thanks to a meddling grandfather Nate and Keely finally see what others around them do; they are meant for one another.

Game On is book two in Joanne Rock's Texas Playmakers series and revolves around a family of sons following in their father's footsteps of pro baseball dreams and careers. Family drama and the game's ups and downs have them each returning home individually to confront the past and find their future. Game On is a reunited love story between said baseball player and his former high school sweetheart turned flower grower. Nate Ramsey was quick to grab my attention because he was heading home to the same family that we got to know in book one of the series. He's injured and planning a recovery while checking in at home, but he doesn't expect his grandfather to send him to see his lost love as soon as he hits town. Keely Harper is a complex character. She holds the weight of the world on her shoulders and forsakes her own happiness more often than not in hopes of keeping her family under the radar and functioning. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a small town romance with a hint of sports and a whole lot of warm memories and family centered story line. I'm enjoying the series and looking forward to the next brother's story!

Game On was not one of my favorites by Joanne Rock but there are a lot of good points to the novel. There’s a good storyline involving second chances. The two main characters, Keely and Nate, both have problems that seem insurmountable to their reunion. There is a cool secondary storyline involving Keely’s sister, Alexis, and another baseball player, Ty, that continues into the next book in the series. The story is a bit slow to get going and drags in a few areas, too. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I Simply Love Last Stand, Texas it is quickly becoming my second favorite fictional town. I adore cowboys and if I am not In Marietta I want to be in Last Stand. In this book, which is the second book in the Texas Playmakers series we get to know Nate Ramsey. Nate, if you read the first book in the series, Is a professional baseball player, based in Texas. Well he is home to recover on the IR or Injured Reserved. While he is home he come looking for Keely Harper he one and only love. High School sweethearts that life (her drunk father) got in the way. This book is so true to life in so many ways and our author tells a love story that has me rooting for them and wanting to reach thru the pages to strangle some old men's necks. I can not wait for the next book in this series! it looks to be every bit as good as this book if not better.

We are back in Last Stand, TX and this time Nate Ramsay gets his story. Nate comes from a family of baseball players and finally gets a chance to play in the major league but an injury sidelines him and he goes back home to Last Stand to recover. But his return stirs feelings for the girl he left behind five years ago when she chose not to follow him. Keely Harper is finally getting some stability in her life after spending most of it taking care of her younger sister, dealing with an alcoholic father as well as a struggling business in order to feed and care for everyone. The story is filled with family drama on both sides, the unknown future of Nate’s career and whether or nor Keely is ready to let go and find time to do something for herself. Feelings and fear of abandonment run deep. Though at times a little slow, it was an entertaining story . The main characters as well as the secondary ones kept the story interesting. Looking forward to the next book in the series. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Tule Publishing . The opinions expressed are solely my own.
