B's Book Review: The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton

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. 

My thoughts:
I have had it for years, I think I won it ages ago when I wanted to see if I could read Ero Romance....I can't. I skim sex scenes, I want the emotional stuff, things happening and more.

But I finally gave it a try, and it was so good. But yes I skimmed the sex scenes, lol. But the rest, so good, she writes such good books. The emotions, the drama, everything works so well.

Mick is a playboy, he is a great football player, oh and he has a really bitchy PR agent.

Tara on the other hand is a hardworking mother with a teenage son. She wants no drama.

They meet, they do it, he wants more, she is careful considering his past, and hers. There are hardships, smexy times and just a really well written book. I would sort of even give it a 4 if I did not skim parts. I know! Not the books fault, but I am just not sure how the book would work without them either. They need each other.

I would  recommend it.
