SHOT ON GOLD – A Jaci Burton Review

Shot on Gold could not have come at a more perfect time! As the 2018 Winter Olympics play on my television, I dove in to Will and Amber’s own story in the (fictional) Olympics. There’s something about hockey that just breeds some good-looking men and Will is no stranger to ladies. He’s partied his last few times at the games but as he’s gotten older, he’s decided to really focus on himself and push his career and the U.S. team to gold. Amber has had an unpredictably sheltered life. Her focus has always been figure skating and winning at all cost. Sacrificing a childhood spent outside, findings friends in competition, and even missing out on any chance at love. With a stage-mom pushing her to work harder than ever, she’s bound to break.

Will and Amber meet and it’s insta-sparks! Not only has Amber decided to go for more of everything in her life (friends, men, experiences, and just plain fun) she’s willing to try anything with Will and his charming ways. I love that Burton didn’t make either of them sacrifice their work ethic or their drive to win in order to spend time together. There’s a healthy balance between athletes and lovers. Will and Amber spend a lot of the book focusing on learning about one another. Their intimate moments are filled with words as much as they are with skin. It’s a down to earth romance still steeped in high-pressure sports arena action.

Although its a new set of characters for the Play By Play series, Shot on Gold really stands true to Burton’s down-home, feel good romances that will leave your heart feeling full and a huge smile on your face. There’s no way this series can die out!

Opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates—and go for the gold…

Will “Mad Dog” Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Games, and he couldn’t be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She’s beautiful, ambitious and driven—everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she’s competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing’s going to get in her way—until she meets Will. He’s an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.

THE FINAL SCORE – A Jaci Burton Review & Giveaway

img_2925

The sports romance dynasties combine and they are HOT! Mia Cassidy is now in the city where her best friend and crush, Nathan Riley now is. They had a one-time night together, but Mia loves their friendships too much to risk losing Nathan in any way. Nathan feels the same but the more time he spends with Mia, the more he thinks they could have a chance at the real deal.

This is an odd second-chance romance in that Mia and Nathan had one drunken night together but now as they are getting older they want more and see more in one another, Burton did an amazing job pairing Mia with Nathan. The first Riley boy with the young Cassidy girl…EEK! It’s what paired families dream of! But in all honesty the friendship between these two is beautiful long before they decide to make things more serious.

Both of them are supportive and honest with each other in a way that only true best friends can be. And that makes for an honestly epic romance story. I loved getting to see these two come to understand their feelings for one another beyond the boundaries of friendship. It’s a whole different world when you love someone more than just a friends. These two become true partners. Love, love, loved it!!!


33540070.jpg In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Contact, a star quarterback is torn between his love of the game—and the woman who may be the love of his life.

Nathan Riley is ready to follow in the footsteps of his famous football player father. He’s been drafted as quarterback for his dad’s former team, and his sports future is bright. When his friend Mia Cassidy moves to the same city, their years-long friendship suddenly sparks hot, reminding him of the one night they had together in college that he can never forget.

Like Nathan, Mia is from a sports dynasty family and embarking on an incredible new career—as founder of her own sports management company. Her friendship with Nathan means everything to her, and tossing sex into the mix again could jeopardize it all. But the chemistry between them has always sizzled, and it isn’t long before Mia realizes she wants more with Nathan than just late-night talks and pizza.

Passion has a funny way of changing the rules, and soon Nathan and Mia realize that to win it all, they’ll have to make an unexpected play for love.

RULES OF CONTACT – A Jaci Burton Review

*ARC received from NetGally for an honest review*

FINALLY, Flynn Cassidy has his day! I will always love the Rileys but the Cassidys quickly won me over the minute Flynn showed up on the page. I have been anticipating his story and eager to see the kind of woman that would get this charming hero’s heart. Flynn has shown up in past Play-By-Play novels as he was opening his restaurant, Ninety-Two. Rules of Contact focuses on Flynn as his project opens; fans flock to his heartwarming homestead restaurant with a brilliant chef: Amelia Lawrence.

Flynn struggles to find a woman who wants to be with him as a man and not attached to the hip of a star athlete. Amelia watches as women try their best with Flynn to win his heart only to strike out when the camera catches their eye more than the hunky football player. He’s so down to earth and endearing to everyone that he tends to give everyone the benefit of the doubt; except not he field of course.

I loved the fact that Amelia and Flynn had a playful friendship even though they were boss and head chef. The ease with which these two talked and sassed one another was reminisicent of the Cassidy and Riley families. And Flynn suddenly realizes the attraction he had to Amelia is more than friendship. Amelia is standoffish at first as her ex-husband broke her heart and gave her such distrust in finding love again.

I also enjoyed the fact that this book focused more on the story and had less of the sideline action of the sports. Not that I ever minded in the previous Play-By-Play novels, mind you; they ARE sports themed! But this had a more contemporary feel as we saw more of Flynn as the chef and the family man: almost as if Burton wanted us to see him the way he wanted to be seen to his dream woman.

***SPOILERS BELOW!***

I honestly thought the climax would be Amelia’s resistance to an official relationship with Flynn. She struggled with accepting her feelings throughout the entire story, mores than Flynn ever had. Flynn believing that Amelia wanted the spotlight threw me for a huge loop! I was stunned at Flynn’s reaction and was so nervous that this was it for these two.

Can’t wait to see who’s next (MIA????)! Until next time…

contact-revised-300x450In the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Unexpected Rush, a football player with all the right moves on the field needs a better game plan for his love life.  
 
A defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers, Flynn Cassidy is used to being in the spotlight—he just doesn’t enjoy it. But if getting in front of the cameras will help his new restaurant succeed, he’s willing. Now if he could just meet a woman who loved him and not his fame…

After her divorce, Amelia Lawrence is thrilled to start over as head chef at Ninety-Two. It’s just the opportunity she needs to heat up her career—if only she wasn’t wildly attracted to her sexy new boss. Their chemistry might be sizzling hot, but Amelia has no intention of being burned again.

Amelia is genuine and fun and Flynn can’t get enough of her—and Amelia loves every second she spends with the tough but tender Flynn. But trust is a hard fought battle for both of them. Breaking the rules of contact and surrendering to their passion was easy, but are they willing to risk their hearts to win at the game of love?

MISTLETOE GAMES: A Jaci Burton Review

***ARC Received from NetGalley for an honest review***

Hey all! I was fortunate enough to get the chance to FINALLY read Mistletoe Games the holiday anthology set from Jaci Burton!

18086963Holiday Games takes us back to Liz and Gavin Riley after they’ve married. Liz, as with all the women of the Play by Play series, is strong and independent. Her whole life she’s done what she could to get ahead despite having a gigantic crush on her client Gavin. in Changing the Game we got to see her walls finally come down and watch as her and Gavin fell head over heels for one another in an explosive affair. Now we get to glimpse into their life as they attempt to get pregnant. I like the fact that Burton took the route of the difficulty of pregnancy. Liz struggles with herself and the troubles she’s had to get pregnant. I also enjoy that Burton didn’t focus just on Gavin’s support of Liz, she focused on Liz’s ability to have faith in herself and from her closest girlfriends and family. Truly a heartwarming story that I love!

20985459Holiday on Ice introduces us to two knew but familiar characters, Stella: the lead ballerina and Trick, the stud hockey player. Stella’s past holds a terrible break up that leaves her without the ability to commit to any man. She has no problem having her fun with them and Trick was one of the best she ever had. When Trick sees Stella months after they seemingly drifted apart, he knows he can’t let her go again. Undeniably attracted to one another, these two make for one steamy pair. But when Trick begins to lay out how he feels and Stella fears that the past may rear its head again, she can’t decide what to do. Trick’s commitment to Stella and his honesty with her is what drew me most to him. Plus glimpses of Drew and Carolina made me exceedingly happy!

26040381Hot Holiday Nights is one of the sexiest Jaci Burton stories I have EVER read! WHEW! Victoria is finally on vacation in Hawaii after working her ass off as a sports agent and she’s been looking forward to some much deserved vacation bliss. What she didn’t expect was a surfing competition that leads her to sexy surfer Alex and a hot night between them. Surprisingly after their tryst it turns out that Alex’s agent, Ben, had been in the room and witnessed their love affair! Now Victoria’s got eyes for Ben too; and it seems they both don’t mind sharing. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. After nights of insane pleasure beyond their dreams, Victoria, Ben, and Alex have to come to terms with how they all feel for one another…and what the future will hold. This last story honestly took me by surprise and i have to commend Burton for going a little out of her general romance/sexy field in the steamiest scenes I’ve ever read from her!

Until next review!

XOXO Nalla
