Someone once said that the difference between romance and adult romance (erotica) is that romance has a story that also includes the juicy naughty bits but that in the end there is still more story than there is sex. I always just accepted that as a good answer but this book has changed my mind.
While I think Jaci Burton is an amazingly talented writer, I had a few problems with this book.
Next we get to the part where the agent parts ways with her client. She is a sports agent and her client a famous baseball player. When she ends their business arrangement she kept referring it as firing him. Not just once or twice did the author make that mistake, but more like 15 or more times.
An agent works for him, so he can fire her. But if she ceases their relationship it’s the end of a contractual relationship, not a firing since he doesn’t work for her. You can’t fire someone that doesn’t work for you. A good editor would have caught this mistake, that was repeating again and again and again and again.
I know I’m probably just being petty about something like that but it really did annoy me to no end.
I give Changing The Game a BORROW IT. I know that normally I would give a book rated a 7 or higher a buy it, but considering the price of over $12 for an e-book at Amazon, it’s just not worth it. Sorry but a book like this should be priced at like $3.99 max, not over $12. That’s just crazy and for that reason alone I have to give this book a BORROW IT. No matter how great a book is, I’m never going to suggest paying over $12 for an e-book version. Paperback version maybe, but e-book? No way, no how.
If publishers put bigger pricing demands on consumers then they need to consider making it worth our while. Sorry but I can get 4 or more books for the price of just this one. Greedy publishers can suck it because they don’t offer me the consumer anything more for that money so I’ll just buy 4 other books instead.
