Jaci Burton--The Perfect Play (Play by Play #1)

Contemporary Romance

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.
{2.5 stars}
I picked this one up based on other reviews, on the surface it sounds like a "HOT" read. But it was (for me) lukewarm, very vanilla. Maybe I read to much paranormal romance and true erotica, so I had a hard time keeping my attention on this one. I did finish it though, I kept hoping for something more dramatic to happen other than normal everyday drama. There was no exciting, life or death thrill ride events. I want to read a book that becomes a fantasy that I can escape into, or have more passion than I can find in a rated R movie (the cover was the hottest part of this book in my opinion). This just didn't do it for me.
