The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton {Review}

The Perfect Play

Trade Paperback, 336 pages
Published February 1st 2011 by Berkley Heat

From the national bestselling author of Riding the Night comes an erotic story about love and the games people play.

The last thing event planner Tara Lincoln needs is the jet-set lifestyle of a football pro like Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand proved that Mick is an all-star-both on the field and in the bedroom.

Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn't intend to put herself out there again, especially with a certified heartbreaker. But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind to catch this sultry vixen.

First Line(s): Sweat dripped down Mick Riley's face and arms. The field workout he'd just endured had kicked his ever-lovin' ass.

Favorite Line(s): "When you love someone, it's your job to protect them. And I didn't do my job."Page 279

My Review: This is my first book by Jaci Burton ( please don't throw stuff at me) but it won't be my last. Yummy yummy! I mean the cover alone should get you to read this book, you did see it, right? RIGHT??!!!

With Mick and Tara you get an intense, erotic and an emotional ( very raw and real) relationship. J. Burton was able to make Mick so down to earth even with his celebrity status, it was refreshing. I loved how J. Burton was able to write about everyday challenges one would find in a relationship, including Nathan, Tara's teenage son. I was thankful that there was just enough Nathan in the story without taking away from the steam factor of the novel.

I can not wait to read the next book in the series, Changing the Game.

So nice to be able to finally check this book off my TBR list and after reading it I am ashamed it sat there for so long.

My Rating:Photobucket

Until next time...Happy Reading!
