Hey all,

This book just released today and I thought I'd let you know about it. I had the pleasure of beta reading for the author and I loved the book. It's 1.99 for a short time and it's on Kindle Unlimited, so grab a copy for yourself. You'll love it, especially if you love sweet, clean romance.

Game Changer (Ruled Out Romances Book 1) by [Stastny, Charissa]

Meridee Mansford wants nothing to do with the popular crowd. She's comfortable being invisible. But that doesn't stop her from dreaming about the hunky football player who visits the campus ice cream shop where she works. Still, she's smart enough to know he'd never notice a girl like her, and she'd never want him even if he did. Too much unwelcome attention.

Parker Harrington basks in the glory that's been his since the game-changing passes he caught pre-season that pushed his team into the national spotlight. Sticky Fingers is his media moniker now, and the cheerleaders who used to ignore him when he sat the bench have become his most devoted fans. But when he accidentally crashes into a quiet coed and covers her in orange chicken, it throws off his offensive game and makes him question why he's drawn to a princess when he already has the queen.

As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, they will discover that skin deep perfection can't compare to the true beauty deep within one's soul. Will Parker continue keeping company with women he knows are only using him for his fame, or will he change up the game and risk his heart on a genuine girl who despises the attention he craves?


In this new set of stand-alone stories--the Ruled Out Romances--star-crossed lovers meet, but rule each other out. But life, with its quirky twists and tangled turns, brings each of the unlikely couples back together until they discover their unique happily-ever-afters.

My review: 

Opposites attract when the overlooked sweet girl lands herself the popular football star in this quasi Cinderella story. It’s the perfect read to keep you up way past your bedtime—and leave a smile on your face when your head finally hits the pillow.
Parker Harrington quite literally runs into Meridee Mansford, creating quite the aftermath. He can’t forget his run-in with the unassuming beauty—even though his life trajectory is already headed straight toward perfection with a promising sports career and the attention of the girl he has always desired. So, why can’t he shake his wandering thoughts? Why is he drawn to a princess when he has the queen? The answer challenges Parker as he discovers that skin deep magnificence can never compare with the true beauty that lies deep within a soul. Game Changer will entertain the reader with witty dialogue and a fast paced plot. But the reader will also walk away knowing that true love wins every time. This is a well-written, feel-good book that will stick with you for days on end. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey!
