This is the third book in the Play by Play series, the other two The Perfect Play (Play-By-Play Novels (Heat)) and Changing the Game (Play-By-Play Novels (Heat)) were definite five star reads. In this latest story I felt that a sound plot was missing. Yes the love scenes were hot and sexy. But the book lacked any real story, other than the fact that Jenna Riley hated sports and refused to date any guy who was involved with sports. Jenna ran her family's sports bar, she had been in charge since her father's heart problems. Jenna's two brothers Mick who was a football player, and Gavin was a baseball star. Meant that she ate slept worked and lived with sport. So she no way wanted to date a guy who played any sport for a living. That is until Tyler Anderson local ice hockey hero, came into the bar. The chemistry between them was electric. Jenna decides to get Ty out of her system she spends a really hot and sexy night with him.
Jenna is a conflicted character in this story, she hates working at the family's sports bar, but does not have the courage to tell her family the truth, especially after her father's illness. I found her reason for not wanting to date Ty, a bit pathetic. Jenna wants to do something else with her life, she loves music and art. I really liked Ty he was a great character, he had so much patience with Jenna, her constant rejections of him would have put off a lesser man. I did wonder sometimes why he bothered as he freely admitted that she wasn't his usual type. But both of them were inexplicably drawn to one another.
The next book in this series sounds fabulous and will feature the Riley family's cousin Cole Riley in Playing to Win (Play-By-Play Novel).

The 3rd in the series and it still got me hot under the collar. I love this series of books. Don't read book this until you've read the first two. This book is all about Jenna. She's not into sports unlike her two brothers and she doesn't go for guys that are into sports. I liked the slight change in this book. These books can feel a bit samey but I loved the characters and wanted to find out about them. There are more books in this series and I'll definitely read them, but this has rounded off this family's story for me nicely.

Big fan of this series and must give Jaci Burton gold stars for her covers WHEW!!!
This is Jenna's story, (sister of Mick and Gavin) from the last two books and who runs Reilys sport bar, Ty is a ice hockey player with a thing for Jenna but she doesn't want to date jocks (too much of that in her life) so she ends up with the just sex relationship (hot hot scenes) which of course leads to more, Ty and Jenna are great together and like all the books in this series its the way the characters are writtern more than a action packed plot, that make these books so great, the men are hot hot hot with tough sport sides and then you flip the coin and there hot hot hot with softer sides for their women (love that) Mick, Gavin, Tara, Nathan, and Elizabeth are all in this book along with Jennas parents and a quick bit with Cole their cousin who's the star of the next book, cant give much more away about the book as it will give you the whole story but its good! and well worth a read

I looked at this item a few times finally decided to purchase it but was disappointed. The characters are nice but there was not much of a story line and it dragged on. I have read much cheaper items which are much better stories. Sorry for bad write up but I think it is too expensive for quality of story.

i enjoy the first one but after reading the second i feel there rather similar i am going to read the third but feel the books need a bit more substance. they are an easy read and are enjoyable but just need abit more of a storyline.
