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

This book blast and giveaway for Game Changer by Charissa Stastny is brought to you by I Am A Reader.

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 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.
As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, 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?

Parker waggled his brows at me. “I’m waiting.” When I glared, he leaned over to whisper. “Call your man, or I’ll know you’re lying and be by to pick you up tomorrow night for our date. Tara told me where you live.” His blue eyes crinkled at the corners.
Tara had what? I folded my arms. No way would I let him ruin my first date in over three years. “Fine. I’ll call him.”
He raised an infuriating brow. “Thanks, Mare. I can’t wait to meet your soul-mate.”
“It’s Meridee.” I stomped into the break room and sent Danny out to handle the teenage rush with Bryce. Soul-mate. What a moron.
Pulling out my phone, I hit speed dial. On the third ring, my big brother answered.
“What’s up, Mare?”
“Thanks for answering.” I released the breath I’d been holding. “I need a huge favor.”
“Name it, sis. You know I’m here for you.”
I frowned at the pity I detected in his voice. But pride had no place at the moment, not with Parker Harrington waiting in the shop. “There’s this guy bothering me at work. Stalking me.” If he suspected danger, Mark would rush right over to save me. “Can you come to the shop and pretend to be my fiancĂ© so he’ll leave me alone?”
“Ew. You’re my sister.”
“It’d only be for pretend. Please? I need your help, Mark.”
“You don’t expect me to hold hands or kiss you, do you?”
“Oh, shut up. Just get over here and let me introduce you to him. He doesn’t believe I have a boyfriend.”
“You don’t.”
I gnashed my teeth. “I know. That’s why I need your help.”
