RULES OF CONTACT is book 12 in Jaci Burton's Play-by-Play
series. This is a book that will appeal to readers
who enjoy reading about romances between co-workers, as
well as stories featuring sexy athletes. This is a story
with no villain or circumstances acting as an obstacle to
the hero and heroine finding happiness together. The
conflict in RULES OF CONTACT comes from the insecurities
and self-doubt of the two main characters. Happily, Jaci
Burton balances out any drama while successfully telling
an entertaining and sexy story with fun characters.
I love a story that gets me excited about the main
characters right from the beginning, and that's exactly
what RULES OF CONTACT does for me. Amelia Lawrence and
Flynn Cassidy immediately strike me as two characters I
want to know more about, and who seem like they'd be
great together. I like a hero and heroine who have
something in common that draws them together, other than
a physical attraction. For Amelia and Flynn that thing
they have in common is a passion for creating and working
with food. Amelia inspires Flynn to take his interest to
the next level and explore another side of himself.
Amelia and Flynn are more complex than they seem on the
surface. At the outset, it appears that Amelia has the
most emotional baggage to overcome, but Flynn's exes
prove to have left their mark on him in ways that are not
immediately apparent. I deeply enjoyed reading about
Amelia and Flynn finding each other, while they discover
more things about themselves.
RULES OF CONTACT is hot and spicy with a little sweetness
on the side. Jaci Burton fills RULES OF CONTACT with a
cavalcade of supporting characters who add a lot of heart
to the story and provide support for the main characters.
Flynn's younger sister Mia is an interesting character
and I hope to read more about her in a future book.
Flynn's family, in general, is amazing and their
acceptance of Amelia and their interactions with her add
something very special to this romance. Jaci Burton never
fails to create a love story that is both sensual and
exciting. RULES OF CONTACT is both a sensual and exciting
romance, as well as a cleverly crafted character-driven
