WELL WRITTEN STORY THAT IS HOT AND SEXY, A LITTLE LACKING IN THE PLOT
on 31 March 2012
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).
