Shot on Gold(Review Post)

Published February 13, 2018 by bookbesties


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 Games, 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.

Here is another book in the play by play series from Jaci that I liked! You have Will and Amber; two people focused on their goals to getting that gold medal! Will is sex on a stick, obvi he’s a hockey player, who meets Amber who is a figure skater, aka, also hot! He is a charmer and Amber tries to put up her defenses and focus on her goal, but Will is bent on showing Amber a good time. What will it hurt if it’s just temporary? No harm in just having a little fun right? That’s what they tell themselves until, they get to know each other and feelings get in the way. I may be dating myself here but this book reminded me SO much of this movie about an uptight figure skater and a bad boy hockey player, but this one was, a little steamier.  It was great to watch their journey. I connected with other characters in the play by play series more than these characters but that’s not to say they weren’t great. While this story wasn’t my fav, it was still gold!
