In the latest Play-by-Play novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Quarterback Draw, a sexy baseball player is done striking out...
Tucker Cassidy is going through a slump—both with his curveball and in his dating life. After having a painful altercation involving his ex-girlfriend’s knee, the professional baseball player is convinced things couldn’t get worse…until a gorgeous doctor comes to the rescue at his most embarrassing moment. As the daughter of the owner of the St. Louis Rivers major league baseball team, Dr. Aubry Ross has been around jocks all her life. She knows the ins and outs of all their games, and she isn’t interested in playing. When Tucker repeatedly lands in the hospital where she’s working, Aubry starts to think he’s getting injured just to see her. Tucker is both funny and sexy, and Aubry is pleasantly surprised to discover he actually respects her job. But when her father disapproves of their relationship, will Tucker let threats of a trade get in the way of a game-changing love?
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Summer is all about heat and baseball so All Wound Up is the perfect read for this time of year! This is the second Play-by-Play book that I’ve read by Jaci Burton and I have to say, I am big fan. I thoroughly enjoyed this one because while it is steamy, and hot as hell, it also has a good storyline with two strong, likable characters in Tucker Cassidy and Aubry Ross. They compliment each other perfectly and their chemistry is off the charts.
“I told you I’d been in a drought, didn’t I?” Aubry
“Yes. I believe you mentioned that.” Tucker
“So, you just happen to be the person to make it rain for me.” Aubry
I absolutely loved the way Tucker and Aubry met and from that moment on I was hooked. Contemporary romance books that balance humor, sexy time, and a well developed story really make me want to go back to that author for more. Jaci Burton has proven time and time again that she can write up a hot athlete who isn’t all jock and nothing else, as well as a heroine who is strong, intelligent, and not your typical damsel in distress. Baseball player meets beautiful doctor who also happens to be the team owner’s daughter? SOLD!!! I loved the premise and I loved the slow burn buildup up of their relationship. It is sexy, funny, just a tad angsty, and oh so very good all around. All Wound Up had all the things that I love in a sports romance and it had me smiling days after I was done. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed.
