The perfect play - Jaci Burton

Football pro Mick Riley is an all-star, both on the field and in the bedroom. But a sexy, determinedly single mom just might be the one to throw him off his game...

For years Mick has been taking full advantage of the life available to a pro athlete: fame, fortune, and a different girl in every city. But when he meets and beds confident, beautiful event planner Tara Lincoln, he wants much more than the typical one-night stand. Too bad Tara's not interested in getting to know football's most notorious playboy any better.

As the single mother of a teenage son, the last thing Tara needs is the jet-set lifestyle of Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand was unforgettable. Tara's life is complicated enough without being thrust into the spotlight as Mick's latest girl du jour. Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn't intend to put herself out there again, especially with a heartbreaker like Mick.

But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind. 

My thoughts:
I have had it for years, I think I won it ages ago when I wanted to see if I could read Ero Romance....I can't. I skim sex scenes, I want the emotional stuff, things happening and more.

But I finally gave it a try, and it was so good. But yes I skimmed the sex scenes, lol. But the rest, so good, she writes such good books. The emotions, the drama, everything works so well.

Mick is a playboy, he is a great football player, oh and he has a really bitchy PR agent.

Tara on the other hand is a hardworking mother with a teenage son. She wants no drama.

They meet, they do it, he wants more, she is careful considering his past, and hers. There are hardships, smexy times and just a really well written book. I would sort of even give it a 4 if I did not skim parts. I know! Not the books fault, but I am just not sure how the book would work without them either. They need each other.

Conclusion:
I would  recommend it.

  2. Hahaha you skimmed the sex scenes! That's like the best part! :P Kidding! I've heard good things about this author's books, but I've never tried them out. I don't know why!

  4. Sex scenes - difficult to render well bc they are so repetitive!

  5. I've read a couple of this author's books and while they were pretty good, it's not really my genre since I mostly like Paranormal romance.

  6. I keep thinking I should try this author, but I haven't. I would skim the sex scenes too.

  7. I've not read any of this series. I have heard mixed things - like you'll love it, then you'll get tired of the same formula, different sport, each book. Maybe I'll try this one! Thanks.

  11. This was such a fun book and I skip the more heated scenes most of the time too...I like the romance and emotional aspects more. Glad you enjoyed this one

  12. I'm the same way. I love more emotional romances. Sure a good sex scene is good, but meh.

  14. I read one from later in this series, but I did eventually want to go back and read the first books. Glad it was good even if you had to skim- I tend to do that too unless it is one of a few different authors who write them well (most don't).

    1. Most just go the dirty and fast route, and eh, seen that

  16. Glad it was good. If there is too much sex I will skim, but I like when the story is strong too.
