Holiday Games (Play-by-Play Series #6.5) by Jaci Burton

AN ALL-NEW PLAY-BY-PLAY NOVELLA

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jaci Burton’s “must-read” (Fresh Fiction) Play-By-Play series now arouses the sexy holiday spirit as a passionate young couple discovers the boundless rewards of pleasure.

All Elizabeth and Gavin Riley want for Christmas is a baby. Despite over a year of trying, conception hasn’t been successful. But for a high-achiever like Elizabeth, she must succeed at everything. That means making the very most of every opportunity with her husband. And when it comes to nonstop sex Gavin’s not really complaining. Exhausted, maybe...

Unfortunately, this holiday season they’re not exactly given a lot of private time. Elizabeth is hosting the holiday, Gavin’s sister is getting married, and the house is wall-to-wall with family. For Elizabeth and Gavin the nights may be chilly, but the urge is still hot. And they’re not about to let any distraction get in the way of their necessary pleasures during a holiday game that yields so many unexpected surprises.
 Includes a preview of Jaci Burton's upcoming novels Melting the Ice and Hope Flames.

~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog As usual with any book in the Play by Play series, you will be filled with a sense of family and rightness. HOLIDAY GAMES was a slice of life in the Riley family, and it was a deliciously sweet visit with some of my absolutely favorite characters. This story centers around the holidays and especially Gavin and Liz, who are trying to get pregnant. You know what my favorite part is? Liz is still Liz. Unapologetic and determined to get what she wants. She’s not turned into a mushy submissive woman that does everything her man says. She gives as good as she gets. She demands things herself. And she takes. She is my absolutely favorite female so far in this series. We are also seeing Ty and Jenna’s wedding planning excitement! Another one of my fave couples. HOLIDAY GAMES is still and extremely sweet, family centered story but don’t let it fool you… it packs a lot of HEAT! If you have a love for these characters, you’re going to love this story. Although it does stand well on its own, I would recommend you read it as part of the series. *ARC provided by publisher

I thought this story was pretty boring and unnecessary.

Jaci Burton is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. I love her fast-paced books and diverse characters. I selected this novella to review because I love Jaci Burton and I love Christmas books. I haven’t read any of her Play-by-Play books yet but after today, they are moving  to the top of my TBR list!  I really enjoyed this novella. Liz and Gavin are trying to have a baby. While Liz is success-driven in her professional life, her personal life is no exception. After a year of trying with no luck, Liz is starting to get discouraged. Deciding to try harder, she deploys “Operation Make A Baby” and is all over Gavin while juggling work, a wedding, and planning Christmas dinner for the entire family. Liz and Gavin get hot and heavy in some very interesting places. The steam factor is scorching!  Jenna and Ty also get married in the book as well. It’s wonderful to see the family get-togethers,  the hilarious bachelorette party in Jamaica, and a more mature Nathan bringing home his new girlfriend to meet the family for the first time. There was nothing about the story that I didn’t love. A quick, sexy read full of fun, family, love and lots of baby-making sex J I received an ebook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.

1) have fun!/ 2) keep relationships to a kissing maximum. If you two have to do it, get a book. There are plenty./ 3) holiday characters can enter different areas, however they have no influence there. (I.E. halloween horrors have no powers at the north pole, christmas magic fails at the easter islands, etc.)/ 4) if you are a halloween horror, please dont kill anyone. Unless they are already dead, i guess thats fine, but only if they agree. However, feel free to scare anyone!/ 5) feel free to be a 'legendary' figure (i.e. santa, jack skellington, saint patrick etc.)/ 6) be detailed in a bio and active!/ 7) if you have any ideas to make this rp more fun, my ears are open./ 8) have fun! Bios: Scarlet brie; age: 16/ height: 5'4"/ weight: 90 pounds/ holiday: christmas/ species: elf/ clothes: green tunic that ends in a green skirt striped with red, white and red striped knee high stockings with brown boots and a green pointed cap/ appearance: short blond hair with azure blue eyes, short and petite with long pointed ears/ personallity: meet her/ likes: food, friends, warm fires/ dislikes: spiders, the dark, cold.

This was a fun holiday story that centered on Liz and Gavin's attempt at having a baby. Liz is a person who goes after what she wants and always gets it, except when she wants a baby. It was been a year of trying and still no success. In the meantime, the family is preparing for Jenna and Ty wedding and the holidays are just around the corner. Liz gets it in her head that she is going to have sex with Gavin everyday until she is pregnant. It's fun seeing all the places they come up with! ;) The wedding goes off perfectly, but Liz feels like she is coming down with the flu. This is not good since Christmas dinner is at their house. It's Christmas Eve and Liz doesn't feel sick anymore but she is trying to get everything ready and becoming "out of her mind" as Gavin put it. It is her first Riley holiday and she wants it just perfect. After she sends Gavin to the grocery story for the 25th time, he calls his mom. She understands and says she will come over with his aunt and they will help. It is now Christmas day and she is woken up in her favorite way by Gavin. Liz feels blessed and realizes that her Christmas is perfect. Little does she know that her Christmas gift will be the best one she has ever gotten from Gavin.
