Then, in walks pro hockey stud Tyler Anderson. As much as Jenna would like to go to the boards with him, she's vowed to never fall for a jock-even one as hot as Ty.Ty, intrigued by the beautiful bar owner, becomes a regular. He senses that Jenna wants to do something more with her life. And as he gains her trust, the passion between them grows, as does Ty's insistence that Jenna should start living for herself. With his encouragement, Jenna starts to believe it, too.But first, Jenna has to figure out what she wants, what she needs, who she loves, and if she has the passion and pride to take a shot at having it all-including Ty.Ver Descripción del producto

All in all, it wasn't a bad story, I just felt like both characters made too big of a deal out of some little things (Jenna doesn't date athletes. Tyler thinks she will judge him for coming from a broken home with a dad who he thinks is a jerk - I kind of wanted more of a story about his dad being a jerk than we got).
Good writing. Steamy scenes. Also, I listened to parts of it through audible and the narrator was once again wonderful.
The sex is hot, so it gets 2 stars, but that's the last time I spend 9.99 on a Burton book.
I liked Jenna, and she really made the book for me. She was sassy and tough but still vulnerable. She develops from using her family's business to harbor secret dreams and it was well done as it progressed to her taking control over her life and pursuing those dreams. Ty was a really well written character--by no means as interesting as Jenna but he was a nice compliment to her character. There were several sweet, emotional and funny moments and overall, it was well done. However, Jenna's reason for not dating Ty was lame (but even she admits that later on, so I can forgive it) but I liked how Burton didn't go the conventional route with Ty. It's a very easy read that takes no time to read because everything is laid out and you don't really have to think about it and all loose ends are neatly tied up.
Before this book by the same author, I tried reading The Perfect Play (1st in the Play-by-Play series) but had a hard time getting into it. I had the same issue with this book--the first three chapters or so are awkward and not very enticing but then once you get past that, the story was more engaging. It's structured with alternating POVs between Jenna and Ty but mainly from Jenna. The transitions were good but sometimes repeated thoughts or assumptions each of the characters were thinking. Sometimes, if it was Jenna's perspective it'd suddenly switch to Ty's midway through, which was really jarring and a no-no. A few editing typos or wrong word usages were distracting as well. Burton excels at sex scenes but towards the last third, it was in every chapter and it took up half the chapter. It got to be pointless and a bit boring.
Overall, I liked this story enough to want to read more in this series and from this author.
Maybe if the book were otherwise more engaging I could have gotten over it, but it really is my one takeaway from the book.
