Okay, so if you’ve been reading my articles over the last several weeks, you know that I’ve been highlighting books from my favorite authors. After I scanned through the ones I’ve written so far, I realized I hadn’t talked about a book that has been recently released, so I decided that this week I’d focus on a new(er) release. And the decision was easy! The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton is one amazingly hot—and I mean HOT—book!
Since Burton is listed as one of my favorite authors, I own several books by her. I’ve read some of her series and stand-alone romance books, and there is such variety in the books she’s written that you’re sure to find something you’ll love—in fact, my husband has hijacked my ebooks and is reading her Wild Riders series now. Since I love me some Jaci Burton, I keep track of her new releases, and when I read the blurb from her website on The Perfect Play, I had to buy it! Here’s what it says:
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.
Okay, who doesn’t love the idea of a star quarterback wooing the hardworking average lady? Anybody? I think not. This book was not only sexy, it was funny, and dang it, it made me giddy at times! But the story isn’t just about romance—it also has substance. I found myself unwilling to put this book down! And for those of you who like to read series, this is the first book of a new series. Yea! The second book, Changing the Game, is slated to be released in August, so read this one first, and you’ll be itching to buy the next one…just like me.
