My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart is a funny and good read that had me wanting more and more. Poppy and Mac are complete opposites but so belong together. While reading about them, there were times that I laughed, wanted to scream and smack them, but overall I swooned and fell in love with two great characters and a story line that I loved. I found this to be the perfect combination of Wit, drama, and HOTNESS!
This was my first book by this author and I will say it will NOT be my LAST! I was held from the beginning and until the end and left me longing for more and more. I give this book five stars and HIGHLY recommend!

Small town girl..big city boy. One open emotionally the other is closed. One silly and the other is Intense. Can they ever match? This was a slow starter for me. I understand why later it’s because the author has a lot of setting up to do for the end of the book. That’s where thing really got happening. It all seemed to come full circle. Poppy’s job and Mac’s job. Poppy’s family and Mac’s family. Poppy’s friends and Mac’s friends. Look who is matching now!

This is listed as a romantic comedy but I honestly didn’t feel it was. There were a few times but mostly it seemed darker and more serious. That could be attributed to the male lead. He is a alpha male who is dark and broody. She refers to him as a dragon or King Kong multiple times. He says he doesn’t have a word limit a day but between you and me…I think he does. So getting his story out of him is like pulling teeth.

I enjoyed the sister, Iris, and a co worker, Naveed of Poppy. They both added some flair to the story. Even Bunny, Bobby Lee and Cookie were some nice additions.

This isn’t my first book by this author. I love her Carolina Series. This just seemed to reach quite that high. The story was good and the characters had growth. The author did a good job relaying the intense attraction the two MC’s had for each other. I was saddened and irritated a few times while reading. Then I did get that big “O” of shock. I didn’t see that coming. This is a good story to me though not a rom com

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart is a standalone but is connected to another book by a different author and I didn’t even realize it until I got to the very end.

Poppy is adorable! She’s brand new to New York from Georgia and is trying to show no fear. She does okay about half of the time. She’s has no idea how different her life will be. Now that she’s in the big city.

Mac, oh what can I say about Mac? He is a giant, built, tattooed man who has so many layers to him. He is quiet, thoughtful, loving, artistic and vulnerable. He has been hurt by people he trusted and so he tends to keep to himself.

I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like this story. Why does the Southern Belle always leave her hometown to go to the big city and try to reinvent herself? Too often but it worked so well in this story.

Ms. Stewart is a name I’m always looking for when I’m trying to find a new book read. I can’t wait to see what she releases next.

Game Changer was a great 5 star read by Sylvie Stewart.
I really enjoyed this read, Poppy and Mac were great. I had so many LOL moments.

Mac is a true alpha male, he had some bark but no bite to him. Poppy was a great southern belle who knows how to stand her ground. I loved the bantering between these two.

You could feel their chemistry coming off of the pages. The storyline was great, it had a slow build that moved forward very well. The characters were great which always makes the read enjoyable. This is a great opposites attract story. There are several unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed the cookie wisdom as well. If you’re looking for a great read, 1-click and get started today. I look forward to reading more from Sylvie Stewart.

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart was a great read for me. I have read a few books by this author and have loved everything I read so far. This was no different for me. This book had all the feels. There was happy, sad, scared, anxiety and heat.
Poppy James leaves Savannah for NYC to follow her dreams. She meets Mac who is tall, dark, sexy and tatted but he’s very grumpy. They first see each other when Poppy is caught looking in his window staring at his sexiness while he is working out. Poppy never thought her first subject she would need to interview would be none other then that big, hulking man. Luckily for Poppy, Mac never does interviews but one look at her and he changes his mind. Poppy and Mac have a lot of chemistry and all it takes is a visitor from Savannah to get that ball rolling.

Poppy and Mac make a great couple. She gets him to loosen up at times and he loves her sassy attitude almost as much as he loves her sexy body. Mac has reasons for his grumpiness which you will find out about in the book. What will happen when one of Mac’s closest friends who he trusts more then anyone else sets him up and blames someone else. Will Poppy and Mac be able to overcome all of the bad stuff being done? Loved this book. You don’t want to miss out on this 5 star read!

Game Changer is the newest romantic comedy from Sylvie Stewart, and holy hotness is about the best way to put into words how I felt after reading this book. I adored Poppy and Mac. Poppy is the sweet and sassy southern red head that finds herself transplanted right into the hustle and bustle of New York City life. Mac is quite possibly the strong opposite to Poppy. He’s a quiet and withdrawn, and often growly alpha male. He truly is balanced whenever Poppy is around. Both of their personalities shine in both the comedic relief and steamy scenes. Sylvie Stewart once again drew me in those first few pages so intently that it was next to impossible to be able to put this book down. I found myself reading well past my bedtime to find out how this book would come to a culmination. I am not even one bit sorry for the grumpy mood that ensued the next day from lack of sleep lol. Well worth every moment spent laughing and swooning with Poppy and Mac! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book by the ever talented Sylvie Stewart!

Game Changer is one of the funniest and most engaging stories I have read this year. This gem is the work of Sylvie Stewart and is hands down my favourite book of hers that I’ve read (so far)! This book is a romantic comedy- but there is so much more to this superb story- because woven through the storyline is some wonderful tension, sizzling chemistry, steamy encounters, dramatic moments, a little angsty push-pull, and lots of heartfelt emotion.
I was introduced to Ms. Stewart through her Carolina Connections series and was immediately hooked. I didn’t think this story could beat the other books I’d read- but I was wrong! If I could give this more than 5 Stars, I would. It was so much fun to read, wonderfully engaging, with all the feels to give it even more depth and connectivity. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Poppy James has spread her wings and has set flight to make her dreams come true. This down home Georgia peach has left everything and everyone she loves back home to move to New York to join a national magazine as Creative Director. That’s if the team can give the publication a complete makeover, and win over the board of directors in the process. There is a lot riding on their success. This is her big chance to change her life and she’s determined not to mess it up. She is desperate to be taken seriously, so she says “Goodbye” to Georgia Poppy, and “Hello” New York Poppy.
But the annoying and impossible to ignore subject of her artisan showcase interview throws an anvil in her plans and becomes a huge distraction for her- distraction with a capital D.
Mac is what we’d call tall, dark, and brooding. He’s a hot hunk of tattooed goodness, the strong silent type, who has such an intensity about him that he scares most people away. That suits him fine. He doesn’t ‘do’ people. He has his workshop, his forge, and his creations- they won’t let him down. But people do. He comes with quite a lot of baggage which really weighs him down. Poppy will have her work cut out for her to even get him to agree to speak with her, let alone give her anything much to write about. But fate has a way of interfering.
I LOVED Poppy and MAC- they are really wonderful characters who were so perfect for each other. Their chemistry was off the charts- electrifying!!! They really made this one deliciously Hot and Sexy read. But all the characters played their part to make this story stand out from the crowd- this was a stellar cast- with secondary characters who made an impact. Some were so loveable, like Cookie and Naveed- as well as some not so nice personalities who added an element of drama to the whole story. They all made this a very entertaining read.
The wit and humour were so on point- with such funny banter, quips, and antics- I was laughing out loud quite a lot through the book. I love the addition of the ‘southernisms’ and the ‘Cookie Quotes’- it was very clever of Ms. Stewart and added more personality to the story. Poppy cracked me up with some of her analogies, and self-talk!
This story was so well written I could ‘hear’ Poppy’s voice, southern accent and all, in my head as I read along. When Mac grunted or ‘spoke’ with his eyebrows, I could see/feel it. There wasn’t an element of this story that was left untouched by Ms. Stewart’s attention to detail and vividly descriptive touches- and because of that, the whole book came alive and ‘played out’ before my eyes. It takes true talent to achieve that!
On an interesting note, this book seems to be a crossover with Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander, as the two books share characters, and other major details. I have really enjoyed both books, and the clever, entertaining, and original stories both authors have produced using the shared elements. While both books can be read as standalones, I really recommend reading both!
I cannot recommend “Game Changer” highly enough! Seriously, do yourself a favour and grab yourself a copy to enjoy. You really won’t regret it!
Superb!!

Thank you, Ms. Stewart!

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart is a romantic comedy. This is not my first book by this author and it will not be my last. Stewart creates a great story and characters that you can become apart of easily. I found that this was a fast paced story. I was reading the story and even my puppy was looking at me funny because I was laughing so hard. This is a story that proves that opposites attract. I recommend this story to anyone who needs a laugh.
