If you thought this book only had a hot cover then you can think again. Jaci’s Play by Play series has been blessed by the cover fairy but it also has some of the most perfect men in fiction history! There just isn’t a thing wrong with them!!!As the books before him, Ty is one hot male specimen as well as an all around nice, sweet guy. And he knows exactly how to make a woman happy. In and out of bed. *purrrrrr*

He’s a big deal hockey player but very down to earth. I love that Jenna catches his interest. She’s not his type. She has short hair, tattoos, small breasts, and a very spunky personality. The opposite of what he usually goes for really. But I love her, and obviously so does Ty.

The only problem is Jenna doesn’t date athletes. She’s had sports shoved down her throat her whole life and she doesn’t want that in her love life as well. So after one night of deliciously hot monkey sex she gives up on Ty and figures she should find that perfect non-sports-like man.

Of course, I won’t tell you what happens next! Just know that this book had me ready to spontaneously combust on more than one occasion, it is heart skipping, mind blowingly hot! Ty is just that take charge kind of man that can make your insides melt.

And at the same time I loved seeing those two put their hang ups and issues behind and face the facts that they made each other happy. Without caring what others thought, or even what they thought they should be or do.

I really don’t know why I torture myself with reading the teaser for the next books in this series, I do it everytime after I say I wouldn’t. Now, I’m twitching with need to get my hands on the next book! This one is a baaaaaad boy!

Man! Just writing this review is making me want to re-read it! Yes ladies, it’s that good! *sigh* At least I get to wake up to the sight of Jason Vendryes’ abs every morning, since I still have this by my bed.
