Someone’s going to have to let down their guard…
Football star Cole Riley is notorious for doing as he pleases—on the field and off. He parties hard and fights harder, but if he doesn’t clean up his act, his career is over—so Cole reluctantly agrees to work with image makeover consultant Savannah Brooks. He’s not used to being told what to do, especially by some (admittedly hot) Southern belle. As for Savannah, she’s not convinced she can transform this cocky (and aggressively sexy) force of nature. But she’s determined to give it her best shot.
When the sparks start to fly, Savannah lays down the ground rules: no personal complications. If she can turn off the tingle she feels every time Cole gives her a hot stare with his gorgeous baby blues, he can turn off his desire as well. But for two people determined to have it all, a hands-off policy can only last so long before one of them yields.
I think I've completely fallen for both Jaci Burton and her Play By Play series. Melting the Ice sucked me in and I knew I was a goner from that moment on. Reading Cole and Savannah's story hasn't lessened my love for the series. In fact, the more I read, the more I want.
I enjoyed seeing their relationship play out and blossom. Cole is irresistible and completely won me over by the end. It was a wonderful ride watching Savannah get to him--drawing out this new side of him as he brings out new things in her--and seeing the two of them together. Talk about fan yourself kind of moments. Phew!
Playing to Win was completely made of win. Absolutely sexy and has everything a good romance should, making you feel great at the end of it. It's sexy and full of emotion and love. Jaci Burton will never cease to make me want more and more. Bring on the rest of this series! Also... cover? Oh yes.
