BODY CHECK

Everything’s coming together for budding fashion designer Carolina Preston. Only months away from having her own line, she could use some publicity. That’s when her brother suggests his best friend as a model—hockey player Drew Hogan.

Carolina and Drew already have a history—a hot one, back in college. Unforgettable for Carolina, but for Drew, just another slap shot. This time, though, it’s different. His perfect body would be for professional use only. This time, she could use him.

Drew is all for it. He’s looking forward to the exposure. Plus, it would give him a chance to prove to Carolina that he’s changed. If only he could thaw her emotions, convince her to let down her guard and let him in just one more time…

    A little disappointed

    ## Sorry, but I have to agree with another reviewer that this story lacked chemistry. Yes, the hero and heroine had a lot of sex but you just couldn't feel the love. I couldn't scrounge up any fondness for Drew. He started off a jerk and promised not to hurt Carlina again but of course he did. Once again letting her down. Next thing we know, BAM, she forgives all without question. After the way he treated her she should've kicked this guy to the curb. Just sayin'. As always Jaci's writing style was superb and the ending was long and satisfying so I upped my rating to 3 stars. Although slightly disappointed, I will definitely buy the next one.

    I am such a huge fan of the Play-By-Play series by Jaci Burton.

    I am such a huge fan of the Play-By-Play series by Jaci Burton. I thought this one was fabulous. I revisited the Preston family who were featured in the previous book. I loved that the hero, Drew, was a hockey player and the heroine, Carolina, was a fashion designer. They had a previous encounter that ended very badly and was made more difficult because Drew and Carolina's brother were best friends so it was inevitable that they would see each other from time to time so the previous encounter was a reminder every time they saw each other. This time however they needed each other and each time together was better and better. Their relationship developed fabulously and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION¿s Vivacious Valkyrie ¿ Marta: 

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta: 
    *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review 

    Jaci Burton writes books that are without a doubt sexy, romantic and full of characters to fall in love with. This is the latest in her Play By Play series which is set in the world of sport and this time she's exposing a certain ice hockey player to her readers. If you haven't read her books before then maybe start with The Perfect Play but this story can be read as a standalone . 

    Eight years ago Carolina spent one blissful night in the arms of the one man she had always wanted. Drew was celebrating his graduation and couldn't believe his luck when the enchanting Carolina said she wanted him. He'd always avoided her as his best friend is her brother but that night lust and alcohol just stole all his good sense. Carolina was devastated when in the cold light of day it was obvious that to Drew it was just a one time only thing. Now she's making a life for herself and the one thing she doesn't need is any reminder of her past mistake. 

    Carolina is trying to make a name for herself in the fashion world and asks her brother to model for her. He's happy to help but before she can stop him he contacts his best friend Drew to ask him about modelling Carolina's clothes. Having a sporting icon would be good publicity but the last thing Carolina wants is to spend any time with ice hockey professional Drew. Problem is Drew seems more than happy to help and Carolina can't help but feel that he's trying to manipulate her in some way. Drew realises that he behaved like an immature idiot in the past and wants to show Carolina that he's grown up. Working together could give him plenty of opportunity to show Carolina that he's changed and if he's lucky maybe he can get the chance to show her that he's now ready for something more meaningful. 

    Drew is still the man that Carolina fantasies about but there's no way she will let him break her heart again. Yet Drew is constantly surprising her and Carolina starts to see the man that he has become. Will her family accept him in her life and just where are they heading?There's no denying the passion between them but can Carolina really forgive him? 

    This is the seventh book in this fast paced series and as usual it's a very heated tale! This author writes books that are definitely hot enough to melt ice! A steamy read is always guaranteed when you buy one of these books. 

    Absolutely gorgeous cover that will certainly attract attention and characters with heart that readers will care about. This book will certainly make any reader smile as the hero Drew pursues his lady. Luckily she stops running long enough for him to catch her!

    Love This Series

    This is the 7th book in the series and I have read and loved them all... Jaci Burton is my kinda author... Her books read fast and the stories flow very well... This story of Drew and Carolina was no different from the others in that Drew was a star hockey player and Carolina was the daughter of the Vice President of the United States who was working her tail off to create her own fashion line for both men and women... She didn't have time for romance but when her brother suggested Drew, his best friend and Carolina's "first", as a model for her show sparks flew and the romance was very spontaneous... Loved the book!!
