Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

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.

The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton
Contemporary Romance -Feb. 1st, 2011
4  stars

Jaci Burton has done it again. Fans on contemporary romances with heat will love this latest book. It appears to be the 1st in a series about the popular and athletic Riley family. Sexy and real, this is a book that will satisfy the romantic and has smoldering scenes to keep you warm at night!

Mick Riley is the oldest in the Riley family and a famous quarterback to the SF Sabers. Handsome and charming, he is charismatic and a ladies man. But Mick it tired of all the glamour and just wants a break from all the PR. Football is what he wants to focus on, that is until he gives directions to a lovely blonde after his daily workout. Mick can't get her out of his mind. He likes her personality, and she is actually fun to be with, not work. When he spies her at a party, he is determined to introduce himself.

Tara is an event manager, and tonight she is responsible for the SF Sabers bash. She can't believe she asked the star quarterback for directions and ran away. She is even more shocked when he finds her at the event and asks her to dance. Soon they find themselves in the hotel getting hot and heavy. But Tara knows she isn't his type that is until he tracks her down at her job. Can they even have relationship when they are two totally different people?

I liked Mick's single-minded drive to catch Tara. He is a bit underhanded and sneaky when he involves Tara's co-workers to help him woo her. She never stood a chance. I also liked that he soon wants to meet her son and is eager to learn about Tara.

Both of these characters have a real depth that got me involved in their lives. Plus Mick is pure sex on a stick. I am pretty jealous of Tara. I think any woman alive would like to be pursued by Mick! Tara feels like a genuine person struggling to `make it.' She is trying to handle a rebellious teenage son and run a successful business. She doesn't have time for a famous athlete who is probably going to break her heart. She figures it is most probably just a one-night stand to remember. But she underestimates Mick's determination.

The best part of this book is the scorching chemistry between the two main characters from the get go. Even though they got together quick, I really felt their connection. They were two genuine people really liking each other and enjoying each others' company. This book also tackles some serious issues about fame and each character's own personal courage. I also liked that Tara had insecurities and Mick loved her just the way she was (over fashion models and famous celebrities). This book stands out among the slew of steamier books out today because the main characters don't just lust after each other and have a relationship that often seems to masquerade as true feelings. They have genuine affection and respect for each other.

The Perfect Play is the perfect blend of sexy and fun with really down to earth and likeable characters. The smoldering scenes are just icing on the cake!

Formato:Tapa blanda
Tara Lincoln is an event planner and owner of The Right Touch. By chance, she lands the summer party of the NFL team the San Francisco Sabers. The party is a complete success and it is here she meets the Sabers star quarterback, Mick Riley. Mick is usually seen with an actress or model draped across his arm, so Tara is shocked when he takes interest in her. He makes her dance with him, and later invites her up to his hotel room.

Mick is tired of his agent Liz throwing beautiful women his way. He wants someone who is not after his money or fame - and when he sees Tara he instinctively knows she is "normal." She interests him and he really just wants to get to know her. Being extremely physically attracted to her doesn't hurt either.

Although they are perfect in bed together, real life always throws in more complications. Tara is a single mom, raising a teenager. It has always just been Tara and Nathan and she is not used to putting herself or anyone else first. Mick is known everywhere, and that fame is hard to deal with. Convincing Tara this is not a casual fling will be tough for Mick to do.

First let's all just stare at the cover for The Perfect Play. Sexy, yes? Jaci Burton has been hit with the cover of all covers. I honestly don't know if I could pass this book up if I saw it sitting on the shelves. *wipes drool*

I had a tough start with this book. Mick and Tara meet right at the start of the book, and they had never met before. By page ten, Tara states:

"The more time she spent with him, the more she liked him. Dammit. Why couldn't he be an arrogant son of a bitch, full of himself and talking of nothing by his career and his stats? It would be so much easier to walk away from him if he was self-absorbed. But not only was he gorgeous, he was also funny and was interested in her and her career, and she liked spending time with him."

So Tara knows all this about him by page TEN? Someone she meets on page FOUR. I just don't think this is a realistic mind set someone would have after just meeting someone. How does she know all of this already? She wouldn't. And then he takes her up to his hotel room and tells her he is not there to seduce her just to talk and get to know her. Which of course leads to sex. He comes off very pushy to start. Not arrogant as in - hey I'm famous and rich. But arrogant that Tara would naturally choose to be with him. He also assumes from the beginning that Tara is not out for his money or fame. Again, that night that he meets her. Which to me made it less believable.

So yes, I had a really hard time connecting with Mick at the beginning. But as I continued reading, after a few chapters I felt like the characters calmed down and their relationship took a much nicer turn. I enjoyed Tara's conflict within herself. She has lived her life always so worried about her son, that just because she meets Mick and does develop feelings for him that doesn't change who she is. She is still the worried mother. There is one particular scene towards the end where Nathan is used as a ploy, and Tara is hurt by this. And I think this is a great scene because it shows, no matter how much she cares for Mick, Nathan is still the most important thing in her life. She learns to accept other important people, but it really stays true to her character.

I really enjoyed the pages spent with Mick back home in St. Louis with his family. This is where I feel we get to meet the real Mick and where the story definitely picks up. Tara is able to see the other side of Mick, the one not playing football or posing for pictures. His brother Gavin and his agent Liz all have some nice scenes as well.

One thing I find no fault with are the sex scenes. Yes, look at that cover again - Jaci Burton writes very, very hot smex and the scenes are quite plentiful in this book. The smex scenes do that cover quite proud.

I ended up liking this book, it just took me a little while to get there. I believe the next book is about Mick's brother and baseball star Gavin, and I am very much looking forward to his story.

3.5 stars.

Leave me one minute to contemplate the cover. Again.

Ok.

*** spoilers alert ***

I was pretty bored for the first third of the book. On the plus side there was Tara, a believable heroine with normal reactions. And the biggest luck, I mean, look at that cover. Ok. Mick, the hero - cover apart - was sweet and unremarkable. On the minus side, it was boring, as I said, because the hero was politely pursuing Tara, trying to convince her to give him a chance and being seduced in the process. Maybe I was in the wrong frame of mind, because I thought that the conflict would revolve around the two different worlds from which Tara and Mick came, which would have been predictable. I'm glad I was wrong. I also think the two had personality transplants while having sex, because I couldn't believe they were so sweet and polite one moment and wordy p0rn dirty talkers the next.

When we finally got to meet the heroine's son, Nathan, it was interesting to see how things changed for the kid after the sport star Mick entered the kid's life, much more than what changed in Tara's life, which is NOTHING. I think Nathan was the smartest character in the book and I loved when he made Tara understand that she was using him as an excuse to stall in her life. The only element of conflict was Mick's agent, Elizabeth, who was a real b!tch.

I must confess that there wasn't enough angst to make this book memorable. Mick has a secret in his life, but he's really nice. Mick's family accepted Tara and Nathan without batting an eye and were supportive and understanding. The characters had a problem in their past, but no characters had a flaw to make them more human. Does Mick's very slightly crooked nose count? With that hot bod? I don't think so.

Look at those abs...

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Main female character annoying... 4 de febrero de 2011
Por Bookworm - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
I loved the premise of the book. The male lead, Mick, came across as human and likable...a dream guy. However, the female lead Tara was annoying. She continually jumped to the same conclusions and then had to beg for forgiveness. While at first I felt she had a normal concern for a single mother, it was a never ending loop. Basically, the book could have been a short story if you cut out the repetitive argument. I love the author, and her other books, and wish I could have enjoyed this one more :/

I don't know about you, but occasionally I just *sigh* when I finish reading a good romance. This was very much the case with "The Perfect Play", in fact I was almost sorry when I finished the book!

Mick Riley is 30 years old, a star NFL quarterback at the pinnacle of his career. This guy is smart, he knows to remain competitive he must stay in peak condition and work that much harder then the younger quarterbacks nipping at his heels to take his spot on the team. He is also very much aware that he will only have a few more years before he has to retire and that is baring an injury. To that end, his agent Elizabeth, a weapon on stiletto heals, has promoted Mick extremely well, he has invested wisely and is set financially. Mick is a known playboy, he is seen often with a young beautiful model or movie star on his arm. Basically he is hot as hell, charismatic, and polite, seemingly, 'perfect', but he also has a dark secret.

Through determination and hard work Tara Lincoln is finally realizing her dream and has built her own business as an Event Planner. I found Tara to be an unique heroine, she is not obsessed with her appearance, doesn't consider herself beautiful, and she enjoys a good cheeseburger. lol Tara is a devoted single mom of her 14 year old son, Nathan.

When Mick Riley sets his sights on Tara at a football banquet she has organized for the team, he is quite surprised to find she isn't fawning all over him. In fact, he has to pursue her which lends to her initial appeal. Tara is unlike any of the women he has `dated' or known for that matter. When Tara disappears after a hot night of passion, which she considers a one night stand, Mick takes chase and tracks her down at her business. He then charms her colleagues into cooking up a scheme to lure Tara for a second date.

"Mick hadn't become the NFL'S leading quarterback by lying back and playing dead. He stayed in the pocket no matter the pressure on him, and he got pass completions, both on the field and off. If that meant he had to take some heat to get the job done, that's just what he'd do.

So he waited until Tara left her office on Monday, then strolled in, knowing the women there might be his best offensive line.

The cute redhead hurried over. "Mick Riley."

He held out his hand. "Yes, ma'am. And you are?"

She pushed her glasses up the bridge of her nose while shaking his hand. "I'm Maggie, Tara's assistant. And this is Ellen and Karie."

"Hi, ladies." He shook their hands, too, his confidence growing after seeing their wide grins. Great. That meant at least one of them might be willing to help him out.

"I'm sorry, but you missed Tara," Maggie said. "She just left for an appointment."

"Actually, I was hoping you would help me. Tara thinks it's not a good idea for us to see each other, and I think it is."

"Oh. I see." Maggie all but smirked in triumph. "Well, Tara doesn't always make the best decisions."

"So I was hoping maybe you could help me." The three women's eyes all but sparkled. Women made the best matchmakers, especially if it involved one of their friends.

"What can we do to help you?" Maggie asked, looking for all the world like Cinderella's fairy godmother.

Score!

The Perfect Play © Jaci Burton"

Through stellar characterization, Ms. Burton succeeded in bringing alive a fiercely competitive star athlete and showing how that drive permeates every aspect of his life. He thinks he wants Tara because she doesn't "gravitate to him like a magnet", but as they spend more time together he grapples with his developing need to be with her. While Tara enjoys the time of her life with Mick, she is also is extremely frightened of getting too involved with the known playboy and sports celebrity. Tara worries about getting hurt, is naturally protective of her son, and she has a business to build. Her life is carefully orchestrated. Then there is Elizabeth who doesn't see Tara as "good" for Mick's career. It makes for great conflict and this romance is rife with sexual tension. These people are very complex and I kept turning the pages wanting to know what their secrets were, along with seeing how their relationship would evolve. As with any Jaci Burton erotic romance readers are treated to love scenes that are sexually explicit, off the charts hot, but also tasteful.

What impressed me about The Perfect Play is that it is also a story about a tight knit family, the Riley's, and the close relationship Mick has with his parents, particularly his mother Kathleen. Their relationship struck me as very real and showed the special bond that a mother can have with her adult son. What I also found unique is that Nathan (a well portrayed 14 almost 15 year old) has a pivotal role in the plot of the story.

While there are some scenes of on field games and strategy, the story takes place in pre-season so the plot is not over burdened with football jargon or plays for those of you who are not followers of the game.

Gavin, Mick's star baseball player brother is also introduced and all I will say is 'wow'. I am so looking forward to reading, "Changing The Game", his story to be released this August! Elizabeth also represents Gavin and she will be a key character in his book. ;)

I laughed, smiled, and wept while reading "The Perfect Play", but at the end of the day Ms. Burton gave Tara and Mick one of her special HEA's that I've come to look forward to when reading one of her novels. "The Perfect Play" is the first book to be added to my 2011 Favorite Reads. If you enjoy a hot erotic romance, about two people who are at the crossroads of their lives for very different reasons and find love, you may like to give "The Perfect Play", a try.
