  • Touchdown! A perfect addition to the series!

    I've been a HUGE fan of Jaci Burton's Play By Play series since the very first book, The Perfect Game, and I've loved every single book in the series so far! I've absolutely LOVED seeing her build up the Riley family, the Cassidy family and every other amazing character in between! We started with Mick and Tara in the first book...and now in THE FINAL SCORE we're making our way back to them with their son, Nathan...and his love interest happens to be Mia, the only daughter in the Cassidy family! We've met her four older brothers and seen them all find love, so it was absolutely wonderful to come back to see her budding romance with Nathan! Even better, I'm love friends-to-lovers romances and Jaci did an amazing job with this one! If you're new to the Play by Play series, you won't necessarily know the backstory for a lot of these characters, but don't worry, you won't be spoiled if you decide to pick it up now! You'll see who they're with, but with Jaci's books, the stories of how they got there are really what make them all so wonderful. Of course, if you start here, you're going to love it, and then you'll desperately want to get your hands on all of the books that came before this don't say I didn't warn you! That being said, don't let the fact that this is a bigger series stop you from picking it up. Jaci Burton's romances are phenomenal, and if you're a contemporary romance fan at all, I seriously can't recommend her books enough. I read A LOT of romance, and Jaci Burton is an absolute favourite of mine! Her books are on my auto-buy list (especially her Play by Play series!!!), and she also happens to be the romance author that got me obsessed with sports romances in the first place! If you're a fan of sexy stories with a whole lot of heart, then Jaci Burton is absolutely for you! Her characters are amazing! In the 13 books (and several novellas) that make up the Play by Play series, I have yet to run into any repetitive storylines or to feel like her characters are copies of each other! The characters, the stories...and even the sexy scenes, are all incredibly unique and she manages to keep her writing fresh no matter how far along in the series you get! I was actually a bit worried when I first heard about THE FINAL SCORE because I thought it was the last book in series and I didn't want her series to be finished yet (I don't think I ever will!)....don't worry though, it isn't! There's already another book planned for February 2018 called SHOT ON GOLD...and I can't wait to read it, too! Somehow...despite being smitten with Jaci's books for years this is the first time that I've actually reviewed one on my blog, so I hope you don't blame me for gushing about how awesome she is before talking specifically about THE FINAL SCORE! ;) As should come as no surprise by how much I've already raved about Jaci Burton in this review, I've loved every single book in her Play by Play series! I'd be hard pressed to ever pick a favourite, but for right now (until the next book comes that is ;D), THE FINAL SCORE is sitting right at the top of my list! Nathan and Mia were phenomenal main characters, and I loved getting to know them better! I also adored their dynamics together. As I mentioned, I love romances that are friends-to-lovers, so I was a huge fan of how their story developed. They were so open and honest with each other, and their chemistry was off the charts! All of the books in this series are sexy, but WOW! Mia and Nathan had hot enough chemistry that I thought my kindle might just overheat. ;) Overall, I loved THE FINAL SCORE! It's the perfect addition to an already amazing sports romance series, and I can't wait for Jaci Burton's next book...SHOT ON GOLD! *I received an egalley through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Full disclosure: I'm a HUGE fangirl of this series, so I may have jumped up excitement when I got accepted to review THE FINAL SCORE.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great sports romance series!

    The first book in the Play-by-Play series was probably my first sport romance series and I loved the early books. But I had gotten away from this series for a while, and when I had the opportunity to read and review the latest book I had to take it. The Final Score revolves around a second generation of characters in this series. Nathan Riley of Riley family fame is the son of Mick Riley from the very first Play-by-Play book. He's following his father's footsteps as quarterback. Mia Cassidy, his friend from college is also related to previous characters in the series. Nathan and Mia are good friends from college, although they did have one special night together that neither one can forget. But getting involved in a relationship at this stage in their career isn't going to work. Nathan wants a friends-with-benefits situation, where they can scratch their itch without it messing up with their friendship. Seriously, does that ever work out like that? Mia's struggles with her changing relationship with Nathan provides the light angst and conflict in this book and it does take a bit for Mia to see what's right in front of her face. I love the family atmosphere in this series, and The Final Score did not disappoint when it came to that. Overall, I enjoyed this return to the Play-By-Play series and I'm thinking of catching up on the installments I've missed. Jaci Burton knows how to write a heart-warming sport romance that will have you coming back for more. ARC was provided for review.

  • Yes! Finally, we have Nathan’s book!

    We first met Nathan at the beginning of the Play-by-Play series in THE PERFECT PLAY. He’s the son of Tara Lincoln, a party planner who falls hard and fast for pro quarterback Mick Riley (my personal favorite!) Years later, Nathan has graduated college and been drafted by the same team his dad—Mick—plays for. Having ridden the bench for a year learning everything he can, Nathan takes over as starting quarterback replacing Mick when he retired. Nathan’s both excited and nervous about the opportunity. He’s got some big shoes to fill and a lot of people counting on him to lead the team. Thankfully, his good friend Mia Cassidy just moved to the same town, so he’s got a shoulder to lean on. We met Mia a few books back when she was introduced during QUARTERBACK DRAW where her brother Grant Cassidy meets his lady love. A few more books and three more Cassidy brothers later, Mia is out of college and starting her own business. She’s glad she’s got a friend in her new city despite the underlying chemistry that sparks between them every time she and Nathan get together. Neither are ready for a relationship but both could use some good old fashioned stress relief. Can Nathan and Mia keep it friends-with-benefits only or will their reluctant hearts get entwined along with other parts of their anatomy? I freakin’ loved the heck out of this book! I love that Nathan and Mia are friends and have a history together. I also LOVE that we get to catch up with the Riley family and get to revisit the Cassidy family as well! I also love how devious Jaci Burton is and how seamlessly she was able to join these two crazy and loveable families together! I can’t wait to see what she have in store for us next! ***I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own***
