"Trevor Shay has it all--a successful football and baseball career, and any woman he wants. But when he finds out his college mentor's daughter is in trouble, he drops everything to come to her aid. Haven Briscoe has finally landed a dream job as a sportscaster for a major network. But she hasn't been able to move past the recent death of her beloved father, and it's affecting her career. A plum assignment following the daily life of sports superstar Trevor Shay might be just the inspiration she needs... Trevor will do anything to spark life back into Haven, including letting her into every aspect of his world. The chemistry between them flames higher than one of Trevor's home runs and faster than his dashes to the end zone. But as they grow closer, Haven stumbles onto Trevor's closely guarded secret, one he's hidden his entire life. And despite his protests, now it's Haven's turn to put everything on hold to help Trevor. Will he let her in and trust her with a secret that could blow his professional and personal world apart?" -- from publisher's web site.

All about romance put all this together for me so I did not have to. This is probably going to sound far harsher than I really intend, but can we call time of death on the Play by Play series? I have read all eight books in this series, in spite of not caring a wit about sports, but the last four or so were just not very good, and the latest is the worst of the series so far. The premise and characters are unrealistic. The plot is just a rehash of the last four books with different names. I managed to crawl through this one, but I can’t help but think it might be time for Burton to consider starting over with a fresh idea.

At this point, I can basically tell you how one of these Play by Play books will go before I open it. The dead sexy, ripped professional athlete (who typically has secret insecurities) meets an above-average lady who is trying to make a name for herself in some type of job. They’ll be forced to either work together or live together. At some point, they typically end up at the athlete’s beach-side mansion where he cooks her a meal like a five-star chef from ingredients that are magically in the fridge, even though they just got into town that day. The lady flounces around in a swimsuit; they pant over each other, and spend most of the book jumping in and out of bed while denying that there is anything more than sex between them. All of this is sprinkled with random sports references and the lady going to the athlete’s games. I loved the first few books in this series. When it revolved around the Riley family, there was a lot more heart to the stories. The characters were more fleshed out and things weren’t so repetitive. Since we were dealing with characters within the same tight-knit family. BOOKLADY1 comment...... I was hoping this entry would be the last ....but unlucky me ...there's more to come. I wont be reading any of them. This series is dead to me.
