With ten books already in the Play-by-Play series, Jaci Burton is looking for
another home run! Tucker Cassidy is a pitcher who has a strong sense of self. So
when his crazy drunk girlfriend tries to push him into living with her,
Tucker lets her down easy and tells her he's not ready for that commitment.
As she grows angry, she lashes out in the only way she knows how and
that's a knee to the groin. Tucker hits the ground hard and is then helped by
Dr. Aubry Ross, who just so happens to be the daughter of the man who
owns his team.
The smart and savvy doctor impresses him, but when Tucker tries to put the
on her, Aubry politely explains she's too busy for dating and she has to
keep her mind focused on her career. I really liked Aubry's character. She's
smart, deliberate and doesn't allow others to cloud her judgment. Even when
her friends are telling her to take her chances with the hot pitcher, Aubry
lives by her own rules. I found it annoying that her friends and Tucker were
trying to push her onto him after they'd only met once -- and those
were always in a professional capacity. Aubry keeping her foot down in the
beginning made me really enjoy this book more, especially when dealing with
a guy like Tucker.
Burton explores more of the Cassidy clan in this book. Readers get
a deeper sense of their brotherhood and camaraderie, which is always
fun to read. I am looking forward to the rest of the books, but I'm worried that
since all of them seem to be so confident in their sexuality, will they all read
the same on the page? With Tucker's character, I missed that certain something
made Burton's other characters appear sweet and softer than the typical
jock persona so I wonder how Burton will approach that since they are all
ALL WOUND UP is dirty, funny and sensual all at the same time. So it's really
no surprise why Burton's Play-by-Play series remains as one of my favorites
in the genre.
