Romance Sports | Contemporary

The Play-by-Play series has come a very long way since the first book in the series. Beginning as an erotic romance series, I feel like it's become much more about contemporary romance, which isn't a bad thing at all. I used to see these books as one-night-stand reads because they were quick and fun reads, but Jaci Burton has injected this series with much more heart over the course of the series and has made it much more stronger.

SHOT ON GOLD is book fourteen in the Play-by-Play series. You don't need to have read the other books in the series to enjoy this one. SHOT ON GOLD features hockey as the main sport and even better is the fact that it features the Winter Olympics. I really enjoyed this concept since I think it brought the main sport to the forefront of the book. There's a real focus on hockey and the Olympics, which is important to me. I don't like it when sport romances feature athletes but don't actually show them playing the sport in the book. Burton doesn't cut any corners here and delivers a fabulous read for her readers.

The heroine is a figure skater and this sport also gets a lot of attention. Once again, I commend an author who has done her research and deliver details that make the sport unique.

Along with the intricate sports details, there is also a strong romance between Will and Amber. I loved seeing their romance grow during the course of the book and felt like their chemistry bloomed at a believable rate.

This series continues to be a favorite one of mine and I look forward to seeing what Jaci Burton has planned next!

Learn more about Shot on Gold


In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Score, opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates--and go for the gold...

Will "Mad Dog" Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Olympics, and he couldn't be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She's beautiful, ambitious and driven--everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she's competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing's going to get in her way--until she meets Will. He's an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.
