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

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.
