I've been working on my immediate TBR pile that i posted about a couple weeks ago. I have read 3 so far. First i had to read The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton. i have to admit it was tough to decide which to read first. I mean look at my list? It's a awesome looking list. The perfect Play is the first in Play-by-Play series. I'm not sure what's better finding a series when it's first starting or once there are a few books in and you get to play catch up which in this instance would be fun. Jaci was blessed with a awesome cover for this book. One of the best I've ever seen i think. You could probably spend at least 10 minutes just looking at the cover. lol I kind of like sports themed books so i figured I'd like this one too. Here is the blurb from the back of the book.
The Perfect Play
Book One in the Play-by-Play Series
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.
OK i liked Mick who is a NFL player because he's not what you think he would be. He has morals and a wonderful family and is down to earth. Looking at him i guess you wouldn't think so at first. He's got secrets just like everyone else and things he's embarrassed of to haunt him. Tara who has her own events planning company is a kick ass kind of girl whose had it rough and has fought to be where she is. She doesn't think she's the right material for Mick so Mick has to work to get her to see she's just what he's looking for. Mick's agent Elizabeth Darnell tries to throw a monkey wrench into the whole works a few times and eventually succeeds or does she? You have to read to find out. One word of warning so you're not surprised and blame me. This is a romance but it's also erotica so the language and sex scenes can be a bit explicit.Hot but explicit. I've seen a few reviews on amazon not on this book but other erotica books where people have downloaded it free to their kindle to find out it's erotica and not at all what they expected. This one is actually pretty tame compared to other books. I really enjoyed it and i can't wait for the next installment duly titled "Changing the Game" This one features Mick's brother Gavin who is a baseball player and interestingly enough Elizabeth their agent. Changing the Game comes out August 2nd. You can read all about both books and read a excerpt for The Perfect Play on Jaci Burton's website by clicking here. I give The Perfect Play 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. FYI if you buy The Perfect Play in the back ins a special preview of Changing the Game.
