Review: The Perfect Play (Play by Play #1) 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.

I liked this book. It was not a great book for me but a pleasurable way to pass the time. I thought the cover was so beautiful, and it’s what drew me to the book in the first place. I never doubted for a moment that Tara and Mick would never get together. There was a lot of sex and honestly it distracted from the story for me. There were moments where I thought the book would kick in and I would see more passion from the two main character. I’m not talking about the bedroom passion (there was an over abundance of that) but just something more from them. I liked the relationship between Tara’s son and Micks and his family was fun to read about but in the end just a pleasant read for weekend.
