THE FINAL SCORE (A Play-by-Play Novel, Book 13) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: September 12, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

IMG_9705In 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 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. 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 discover that to win it all, they’ll have to make an unexpected play for love.

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

This installment in the Play by Play series is a true slice of life, not only for Mia and Nathan, but the friends and family around them. I connected with Nathan from the beginning. I liked his humor and easy manner…and of course, his sexiness. I liked Mia as well, but she frustrated me a few times. Ms. Burton’s smooth writing style helped to ease those edges though, and wrote a fun romantic story – perfect timing for football season too.

Review: LOVE ME AGAIN (Hope, Book 7) by Jaci Burton

IMG_8116

LOVE ME AGAIN (Hope, Book 7) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: May 2, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

IMG_8109The seventh sweet and sexy contemporary romance in the Hope series from New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton.

Loretta Simmons has returned to her hometown of Hope, Oklahoma, to start over. She’s determined to show her daughter that she doesn’t need to rely on someone else—especially a man. The only thing standing in her way is Deacon Fox, the man whose heart she stomped on years ago when she left him to marry someone else.

Deacon Fox was certain he was over Loretta, but working on a renovation project next door to Loretta’s bookstore puts him in daily proximity to the woman he once loved, and her daughter tugs at his heartstrings in ways he didn’t expect. Throw in one ridiculously oversized dog, and they’re almost a family. Only he can’t be that guy. Loretta broke his heart once and he sure isn’t going to let her do it twice.

But love has a funny way of re-opening a door you thought was firmly closed.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I fell in love with this book. Deacon is the perfect man to fall in love with. Understanding, caring, hot and sexy. Who can ask for more? I was glad that I could relate to Loretta right away, so that I could care about her and her little girl, Hazel. I’ve enjoyed the Hope novels, but this one gave me the warm fuzzies without going overboard. Smoothly written, believable and reinforced my desire to live in Hope. I can’t wait for the next installment.

Review & Giveaway: RULES OF CONTACT (A Play-by-Play Novel) by Jaci Burton

RULES OF CONTACT (A Play-by-Play Novel) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: December 6, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

img_5468A 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?

~*~*~*~

Cori 4 Stars

RULES OF CONTACT is the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. I really enjoyed it. I loved Flynn but it took me a while to warm up to Amelia. I liked her by the end of the story though. I enjoyed the storyline and the romance was steamy. RULES OF CONTACT is the twelfth book in Jaci Burton’s Play-by-Play series but each book is a standalone so you can pick this one up even if you haven’t read the previous releases. I enjoy the entire series though and highly recommend them for readers who enjoy heroes that play sports and hot romance. Go grab a copy of this one. It’s a great romance book to heat up a cold night.

MISTLETOE GAMES (A Play-by-Play Anthology) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: October 18, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

img_4548No one brings the sexy out in sports like Jaci Burton, the author of the New York Times bestselling Play-by-Play novels. Now, she puts together a holiday hat trick with three novellas featuring the hottest sports around: baseball, hockey, and surfing—because hard bodies are always in season…

Holiday Games
For the high-achieving Elizabeth and her husband, baseball player Gavin Riley, failure is not an option. So when it comes to making a baby, they’re not about to let any holiday distractions get in the way of their necessary pleasures…

Holiday on Ice
It’s the season for giving and superstar hockey player Patrick “Trick” Niemeyer is ready to give dancer Stella Slovinski his heart wrapped up in bow. But he’ll have to melt the ice surrounding her heart to keep her from walking away…

Hot Holiday Nights
Christmas in Hawaii brings sports agent Tori Baldwin two presents: a young surfer at the top of his game and his business manager. But this hot threesome has to decide if the romantic wave they’ve caught is nothing more than a vacation fling, or the kind of love that could change their lives forever…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

Three lovely stories revolving around Christmas and sports. HOLIDAY GAMES brings us to the world of Gavin and Liz as they get involved with the preparation for Ty and Jenna’s wedding. It was light on the baseball angle and more about the couples each dealing with big changes and love. Nice sexy little story. HOLIDAY ON ICE is of course hockey themed and I admit, I love hockey players. This was a fun and sexy romance that made me smile. Trick and Stella made a good couple, even though I wanted to throw a snowball at Stella at one point. HOT HOLIDAY NIGHTS brings us to the sexy world of surfers and a hot romance between Tori and Alex. I read this novella before and it was just as much fun this time around. Overall, the book was a pleasant read with each story the perfect length with a fun story.

DON’T LET GO (Hope, Book 6) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: July 26, 2016

Synopsis

imageRunning from the past isn’t nearly as satisfying as facing the future…

Brady Conners is hardly the settling type, but when tragedy strikes in his family, he has no choice but to return home to Hope, Oklahoma. Setting up shop to work on custom motorcycles and pass the time, Brady has no intention of letting anyone get close—until he meets Megan.

Pastry shop owner Megan Lee is drawn to quiet, brooding Brady. Their connection is undeniable, and it quickly develops from physical attraction into something much stronger. But with Brady putting up barriers, Megan is afraid to truly open her heart—unless she can convince him to let go of the past…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

A lovely little romance set in Hope, with all the characters we’ve already met playing a large part of the story. The scenes when they’re all together seem so natural that you can’t help but feel that you’re a part of the story. This sexy romance had Brady and Megan feeling their way through the emotions of a new relationship. It was made more intense because Brady was carrying a load of baggage he had to overcome. Overall it was a nice, sweet and sexy story.

Unexpected Rush (Play-By-Play Series) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: February 16, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

imageIn the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of All Wound Up, a football hot shot and his best friend’s sister are breaking all the rules.

All the Right Moves

For Barrett Cassidy, playing defense for the Tampa Hawks is a dream come true. And now he may have discovered his dream woman. Harmony Evans, once the sweet, gawky teenage sister of his best friend and teammate has grown into a smart, gorgeous woman with moves he finds hard to resist. But he knows he can’t get involved with his best friend’s sister—it’s guy code.

Harmony has always gone after what she wants with single-minded determination, from her independence to her education to her career in interior design. She never expected her youthful crush on Barrett to develop into something deeper. And she’s not about to let some ridiculous man rules or her brother stand in her way.

When the chemistry is this combustible, lines tend to get crossed. And when Barrett and Harmony’s secret gets out, it just might be game over…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

This Play-by-Play novel was filled with hot football players and their large loud families. I loved them all immediately and how it made you feel like you were a part of them. I also liked that it didn’t get bogged down in football jargon but had enough references that you remembered who and what they were. It was fun, the romance was super-hot and I liked the happily-ever-after. There was some repetitive paragraphs but that didn’t take away from the overall story. Ms. Burton made a fun group of people and I am looking forward to the next one to find their love.

Make Me Stay (Hope, Book 5) by Jaci Burton

Publication Date: December 1, 2015

Synopsis

Make Me Stay by Jaci Burton CoverThe New York Times bestselling author of Love After All and the Play-by-Play series delivers a new novel about how love sometimes has plans of its own.

Having left his hometown of Hope years ago, only one thing could persuade architect Reid McCormack to come home for a lengthy stay—the challenge of renovating a historic building. But once the job is finished, he’ll be headed back to Boston, no matter how much he’s drawn to beautiful florist Samantha Reasor.

Samantha watches over her elderly grandmother and pours a piece of herself into every floral creation she designs. Her crush on Reid has been blooming for a while now, but she’s reluctant to act on it. A temporary fling isn’t what she’s looking for, even if Reid is smoking hot and super sexy. She wants a real, permanent, forever kind of love.

Two people with different goals couldn’t possibly work, and yet as their attraction grows into something deeper, maybe falling in love is the one thing Samantha and Reid can build a future on.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I immediately fell for Reid and Sam, not to mention all their friends and family. This story just made me feel a part of everything going on from the start, which is just the way I like it. Make Me Stay is a feel-good romance that has you smiling and also getting a little choked-up at times. I especially loved the dog who bears a strikingly similar name to my cat…for the same reason too. I loved it!

IMG_4337.JPG
Superstar hockey player Patrick “Trick” Niemeyer and dancer Stella Slovinski have picked up where they left off a year ago, resuming their hot, uncomplicated affair. Stella refuses to call it dating, or a relationship. But lately, Trick is looking for more…

Stella’s been burned before—in a relationship she never talks about—not with her family, not with her friends, and definitely not with Trick. But now it’s the holiday season and Trick is determined to give Stella his heart wrapped up in a bow. He knows Stella is the right woman for him, but he’ll have to melt the ice surrounding her heart to keep her from walking away.

IMG_4336.JPG
This was an enjoyable quick read full of hot steamy romance. Stella and Trick made a great pair. Each of them respected the other’s career commitment and treasured the time they could spend together. I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom with the pitfalls and warm moments. I will also add that it was a perfect length for a novella and never seemed rushed.

Rated: 4 Stars

✿BOOK DESCRIPTION:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Hope Flames and the hot new Play-by-Play novel, Melting the Ice, comes an all-new novel of small-town romance, second chances, and hope…

When a movie crew asks to film on his cattle ranch, Logan McCormack doesn’t expect Desiree Jenkins, the young, sought-after star, to be so open, so down-to-earth, or so intimately interested in him. But the last thing a loner like Logan needs is a distraction like Des, who wouldn’t understand what it’s like to live peacefully off the land.

But it’s Logan who doesn’t understand. What Des wants is an escape from paparazzi and gossip columns, and she’s found it at Logan’s ranch. Now it’s up to her to prove that she’s like any other girl looking to be accepted for who she is. And she’s hoping that it’s by this real-life cowboy who has everything it takes—and more—to give her the kind of happily ever after that can’t be found in the movies.

✿REVIEW:
I am in love with this series! Desiree is a sexy Hollywood star filming her latest movie on Logan’s land. Logan is perfectly happy living on his forty thousand acre ranch, but didn’t mind leasing a portion of his land for filming. He figured his land was big enough that he wouldn’t even know the cast was there until he ran into Desiree. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Since he didn’t do relationships and she was only there temporarily he figured if he avoided her he would be fine. Desiree had other plans. Logan was the most rugged, handsome and infuriating man she had ever met. If only that made her want him less. She could tell he was attracted to her, but he could do nothing about it. Desiree thought she had nothing to lose by throwing herself at him and maybe they could enjoy some no strings, smoking hot sex, but neither realized by catching her both of their hearts might be in jeopardy. Hope Ignites can be read as a stand alone, but I love the series and recommend reading the first book as well.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Everything’s coming together for budding fashion designer Carolina Preston. Only months away from having her own line, she could use some publicity. That’s when her brother suggests his best friend as a model—hockey player Drew Hogan.

Carolina and Drew already have a history—a hot one, back in college. Unforgettable for Carolina, but for Drew, just another slap shot. This time, though, it’s different. His perfect body would be for professional use only. This time, she could use him.

Drew is all for it. He’s looking forward to the exposure. Plus, it would give him a chance to prove to Carolina that he’s changed. If only he could thaw her emotions, convince her to let down her guard and let him in just one more time…

REVIEW:

In true Burton fashion Melting the Ice is another fantastic book in the Play by Play series. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I couldn’t put in down. Melting the Ice may be my favorite in this series to date. The romance and passion just felt so real. Carolina is launching her first designs at fashion week and needs a few male models for her mens clothing line. Carolina’s brother offers to help and enlists his college buddy, Drew’s help. Carolina’s brother doesn’t know about the one amazing night back in college that Carolina’s and Drew spent together. Carolina can’t seem to forget the amazing sex and Drew was gone the next morning like it never happened. Drew never forgot that night either, but he didn’t know how to handle the way he felt about that night. Fast forward years later and Drew feels like he has a second chance to see where things might have gone. Carolina doesn’t have time for a relationship now with her career coming first. Drew offers the perfect stress relief to Carolina. No strings sex. Carolina jumps on the offer thinking this might be the perfect solution to her stress levels. Neither of them planned on things going any further, but would either of them be able to leave their hearts out of it? A great stand alone book in a wonderful series.

✦Play by Play Series by Jaci Burton

» The Play by Play series is a steamy, sexy peek into the world of sports as seen through the Riley family. Mick Riley is a professional football player, his brother Gavin plays baseball. Their sister Jenna runs the family sports bar and doesn’t want anything to do with any guy involved with sports. Their parents are heavily involved in their lives and it’s a loving, tight knit family.

And I’m expanding the Play by Play series to include more characters beyond the Riley family. Hot, sexy, talented men who bonded together at college and remained friends beyond. I hope you’re going to love these men as much as you’ve loved and embraced my Riley family.

» I love sports. I have mad love for football, both pro as well as college. Come Fall you’ll find me planted in front of the television on the weekends to watch the Oklahoma Sooners play on Saturday and the St. Louis Rams play on Sunday. I grew up in St. Louis so Cardinals baseball has always been a big part of my life (Cardinals football was, too, before they moved to Arizona). I still remember as a kid watching one sport on television while my dad would listen to the other sport on the radio. I’m a big fan of NASCAR racing, and world cup soccer. My older son played soccer from the time he was five years old all the way through varsity soccer in high school. While I can’t catch a ball, kick a ball or throw a ball worth a damn, I love to watch it all.

» So having the chance to write a sports series has been a dream come true for me. And what better way to showcase my love for all things sports than to write this series. Hot, sexy, determined to have it all—their successes and their failures pave the way to the biggest win of their lives—that elusive happily ever after.
