If you want to score, you have to get in the game...

The last thing Jenna Riley needs is more sports in her life. While her brothers are off being athletic superstars, she's stuck running the family's sports bar, whether she likes it or not. 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...

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Hot sex, no conflict. 10 de marzo de 2012
Por SJ Markowski - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle
I have enjoyed Jaci Burton's books in the past...I really liked the second book in the series, Changing the Game (A Play-by-Play Novel), and thought Elizabeth's character arc was really strong. I have come not to expect much in the way of serious plot or emotional angst in Burton's books, but they're entertaining and sexy, so I preordered Taking a Shot. This book takes a lack of conflict to a new level. Sure...the sex is hot, but the characters are totally uninteresting. The heroine's "problem" with the hero was that he plays sports, and so do her brothers. Meh. That's not a problem. A problem is being hurt by a sports figure in the past or something. In this case, it was honestly that she was secretly into music and not sports. I found myself thinking: What? Who cares? he's attractive and funny and your family loves him, so what is the problem? And that's just the thing. There wasn't a problem. I got to 20 pages from the end and realized that I had never once cared whether these two really ended up together--in part because there was never any doubt that they would.

The sex is hot, so it gets 2 stars, but that's the last time I spend 9.99 on a Burton book.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas 2.5 stars--This series is going downhill. 5 de abril de 2013

Jenna has been surrounded by sports and jocks her entire life (her older brothers are an NFL quarterback and an MLB first baseman). Add in the fact that she is stuck running her family's sports bar instead of pursuing her own dreams, and she has decided to rule out dating all jocks, forever. Unfortunately, her heart hasn't gotten the memo. And when she meets hot hockey player Tyler, she has to keep her growing feelings in check because she can tell this guy could be a game-changer for her.

In the beginning, I really liked both these characters--especially Ty. He was great--he wasn't ruled by his ego and he could be strong without being a cave man. Plus, I like a man who knows what he wants and doesn't play games.
But, for someone who was supposed to be a hard-ass who spoke her mind and "pushed back", Jenna was such a total wuss when it counted, that it pissed me off and my admiration for her took a nosedive.

Truthfully, I didn't know what Ty saw in her--besides the sex. ENDLESS, REPETITIVE sex, just like all the other novels in this series. Seriously, I never thought I'd say this, but, enough with the sex, already!!
How do these people have time to do anything else? How do these girls walk with straight legs? Also, some of the sex scenes could have been cut and pasted from the previous books in the series. When reading sex scenes, and these are decently written, they shouldn't become boring. But there were so many, and they were so similar...I found myself skimming a few.
I would have liked more story, less sex.

In addition, I was disappointed there wasn't better conflict between the characters. Jenna's issues were unrealistic given the dynamics of her family and her supposedly fierce personality. What conflict there was, was a constant rehashing of the same issue over and over: Jenna's fear. It didn't mesh with her character and it was boring.

In any case, I don't really recommend this book, especially if you liked the second one (which I did). You will be disappointed.

I may be done with this series.

Taking a Shot by Jaci Burton
Contemporary Romance -March 6th, 2012
4 ½ stars

Taking a Shot, is the third book in the author' Play by Play series. This series is about the Riley sports a family who own a sports bar.

Ty Anderson is a star hockey player who has his sights set on the lovely Jenna Riley. Jenna is managing her family sports bar since her father's heart attack. Ironically, she knows everything about sports and is surrounded by hunky men everyday but wants nothing to do with men in sports! Jenna is also tired of working at the bar but feels obligated to hold the cherished family bar together since her father's heart attack. She has put her dreams of writing and singing music on hold. So when a handsome and cocky jock name Ty makes moves on her she wants nothing to do with him! Even if he is so sexy she can't stop thinking of him. But Ty didn't become a star without a lot of determination and hard work. And he wants Jenna and knows she is attracted to him! Will they find a sweet and passionate love but will Jenna's fears prevent them from having a happily ever after?

This was a very moving story. Ty is the perfect hero. Kind, compassionate and sexy! He tries to really understand Jenna and wants all of her including her insecurities. Ty has had a hard early life and was able to transform his life in to a successful career. He wants Jenna but not at the cost of her dreams. He is surprised when he discovers that Jenna wants a life outside of sports and tries to encourage and help her. But Jenna is wary and afraid to open herself up to more disappointment. The reader can't but help but sympathize with Jenna who has given up most of her life for those she loves but when finally given the chance to live her dreams is afraid to take the jump for fear of further disappointments. This is a book about taking chances and having the courage to open yourself up to true love.

A heartfelt and tender romance that contemporary romances will love!

I just went into a frenzy and finished this tonight. I so whole heatedly love Jaci Burton WOW Of course I love the Riley family and at the end of Changing the Game I knew Jenna was up and it was going to be with Ty. So this was a little different because Jenna had issues with her career and doing what was right by her family. Sadly none of it was what she really wanted to do. She was so against Ty and anyone having to do with sports and without giving spoilers, we find out why. The difference with Ty is that unlike Tara and Liz he has a Mom who is single and Dad who got remarried 10 years prior so he was in need for family, but not as needy as Liz and Tara.

Lucky for Janna she has Tara and Elizabeth to confide in and both woman really gave support. I think now by book 3 that Elizabeth had redeemed herself. Got to give Mrs Burton credit there, nobody who read the first book thought that Liz was worth redeeming or she had any compassion. So she showed she did and I loved that part of it.

So many funny parts too. Loved and adored Mick and Tara's wedding and well as the planning for Liz and Gavin. Certain times when the girls were together they would talk about the brothers and Jenna would just freak out. That made them all that much more real. The way that she spoke to Liz and Tara was much closer and called them her "sisters". So we saw Jenna evolve and show a whole person with different layers. Especially with the descriptions of her appearance, very rock chick with tattoos.

As for the Riley clan, Jimmy is back to normal and Kathleen is on a mission. The mission is to extract the truth from Jenna and explore the Ty relationship too. In the end you will find out what Jenna's reveal was and the way it plays out was great. This family dynamic is amazing. I was speeding through and when I get my focus hat on I can do it. Bravo to me. I did however take time to make at least a dozen hi-lites and bookmarks.

So I say bye to Ty and move on to #4

This was another sexy romance in the the Play-by-play series. The youngest Riley - Jenna - is running the family sports bar. She is in charge since her father's heart attack. Her brothers are busy with their new loves and their sports careers and Jenna is stuck. While she loves her family, she doesn't really love the bar. Too much sports and too many athletes for her. She is determined not to have a relationship with any guy into sports. It is hard to find a guy to date since she spends all of her time in a sports bar.

Tyler Anderson is new in town. He plays pro hockey. He also gets under Jenna's skin. Even with her dislike of athletes, he has something. They have a powerful chemistry which Jenna tries to deny. However, they manage to hook up at her brother Mick's wedding. She thinks it will be just a one night stand to get her need for him out of her system but Ty isn't that eager to be gotten rid of.

They enter into a relationship very tentatively. He doesn't have any faith in relationships and hasn't since his parents' acrimonious divorce when he was fourteen. She doesn't want a relationship with an athlete. But they do get to know each other outside of bed too and find that they are each fascinated by the other.

Jenna shares a secret with him. She sings and writes songs but has never told her family. She has a dream of opening a second Riley's that focuses on music but feels she will disappoint her family by leaving the sports bar. Ty tries to encourage her to pursue her dreams but she is afraid of failure. Her fear of going for her dreams is the thing that causes the major tension in their relationship.

This was a great romance and it was wonderful catching up with Mick and Tara, Liz and Gavin and the Riley parents. It is also great seeing Jenna work through her problems and decide to go for her dreams. It was very satisfying to see two strong, stubborn people decide that their relationship was worth the fight.

This was another entertaining episode in a series that has very spicy intimate scenes and also strong romance. I recommend it to those romance readers who like their stories hot.
