The Game: A Carolina Connections Novel

Rolling Hearts Press


When life throws you a curveball, do you have what it takes to get back in the game?

Gavin: All I ever wanted was to play ball. When an act of sheer stupidity took that dream away, I didn't know if I would ever bounce back. But now I've got the opportunity to coach an up-and-coming phenom, and I'm going to give it all I've got. The fact that I've been lusting after his smoking hot sister only sweetens the deal. She's got that whole sexy librarian thing going on—all buttoned up and prim. I can't stop thinking about undoing every one of those buttons. 
The only problem? She thinks I'm just a kid. But I'll show her I'm not only a man...I’m the man for her.

Emerson: Never underestimate the importance of a well-thought-out plan. My life is a series of carefully calculated decisions, all aimed at ensuring a successful future that includes a partnership at a prestigious law firm. I didn’t expect to find myself suddenly acting as guardian for my younger brother, Jay, but I can adjust for his sake. I’m not about to let one change make me lose sight of my goals. Unfortunately, my brother’s very hot and very young baseball coach doesn’t care too much about my plans. He has a plan of his own--one that includes making me fall for him.
I just need to keep my eye on the ball and remember my priorities, because this is one game I can’t afford to lose.

The reviews are in...

"This book is so funny. It's true Sylvie Stewart style but she's at her best and brought her A game, pardon the pun. I was cracking up and the story is really sweet. It's the perfect blend of wild fun and sweet romance with tons of laughs along the way. I closed this book and thought, dang! Girl went and done it again! You go Sylvie! You go straight to your computer and write another! This series is awesome!!!" - Jennifer Campbell, Author of Phantom Elements Series

"This author has created stories that you can get lost in with characters that are not easily forgotten." - Laura F.

"This was the best grand slam. This is the fourth in Sylvie Stewart's series, Carolina Connections, and it definitely provided a home run. Would I change anything about this book to make it better--no, not possible to do. It was sweet and hilarious and touching and hot and with a whole bunch of twists and turns that kept me on my toes. There were so many phenomenal characters in this story, and they all had perfect roles that gave the story manifold dimensions. The stars, Emerson and Gavin, were such opposites, but they totally complemented each other. Reading their story was such a treat." - Meg N.

"This is not my first Sylvie Stewart book and will not be my last, I love her style of writing and enjoy the feeling of you being part of the books she writes ... Once you have read this book you will downloading the others straight away." - Angela S.

If you like funny romance novels, romantic comedy chick lit, or new adult romance with sex, this romantic comedy series is for you!

About the author

Award-winning author Sylvie Stewart is addicted to Romantic Comedy and Contemporary Romance, and she’s not looking for a cure. She hails from the great state of North Carolina, so it’s no surprise that her books are all set in the Tar Heel state. She’s a wife to a hilarious dude, and mommy to nine-year-old twin boys who tend to take after their father in every way. Sylvie often wonders if they’re actually hers, but then she remembers being a human incubator for a gazillion months. Ah, good times.

Sylvie began publishing when her kids started elementary school, and she loves sharing her stories with readers and hopefully making them laugh and swoon a bit along the way. If she’s not in her comfy green writing chair, she’s probably camping or kayaking with her family or having a glass of wine while binge-watching Hulu. Or she’s been kidnapped—so what are you doing just sitting there?!!
