What up, everyone! So I have temporarily returned from my hiatus to help the author of one of my favourites reads this year, PLAY ON. This time, I’ll be revealing the cover for GAME ON, which is a companion novel to the first book. If you haven’t joined the Braxton Bandwagon yet, I highly suggest you do, dear.
I present to you the loveliest cover ever.
Release Date: January 2016 by Spencer Hill Contemporary
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Eric Perry is Lewis Creek’s resident bad boy. When he’s named the new starting pitcher in a town that thinks baseball is everything and he is nothing but trouble, Eric knows he has to clean up his act. Lay low, his coach tells him—at least long enough to actually pitch a game. But when a fight with his teammate lands him in jail yet again, his season may be over before it starts…until his next door neighbor, Bri, comes to the rescue. Making a deal with Eric’s coach, she offers him one final chance at redemption: community service.
Bri Johnson hadn’t talked to Eric in months. Her boyfriend Matt, Eric’s teammate and the school’s golden boy, didn’t like her to be around Eric. Matt didn’t like a lot of things Bri did or said or wore, which is why she ends it with him the same night he and Eric get into a fight—a fight over her. That night is the reason Bri offers to take Eric with her to the community center each week, so he can keep his spot on the team. But spending time with Eric only makes her life worse, as scandalous rumors start flying and Matt refuses to let her move on.
While Eric and Bri work closely together at the center, old stories of stargazing, first kisses, and a time when they were friends start to re-connect them. As they open up their secrets and their hearts to each other, they start to see that they are more than what other people think they are—and even more than what they think about themselves.
Didn’t I tell you it’s the loveliest cover ever? Plus it matches with the first book! Good on you, Spencer Hill. And let me just shamelessly plug my review of PLAY ON here if you know, you want to read the book and want a trusted opinion hihi.
