As the title states, yes, they are! So I had preordered this book a long time ago and I honestly don't care what the books are about. If the author is Jaci Burton, I'm reading it! She's one of my favs.
Victoria Baldwin, or Tori, is a busy sports agent who has a high profile career. For her, career comes first. She hasn't had a break in six months and is taking a much needed vacation in Hawaii. There, she meets Alex and is up for a vacation fling. She's had them before and knows once vacation is over, it'll be done.He's a younger man and she enjoys his company. She then meets Ben, Alex's friend and promoter, and there's an instant attraction there. In fact, the way they first meet is funny, but I won't give that away.
Victoria met Alex first so she tries to deny the attraction to Ben, but both men have a pull on her. One night during the competition, no one can fight it anymore. And let me tell you, it's MUY CALIENTE!
What I loved about Victoria is that she's a strong, independent woman who speaks her mind and isn't afraid of a challenge. Ben and Alex aren't intimidated by her and find her outspokenness and strength a turn on. Both men are strong males and compliment her. They treat her with care and affection and are sweet to her.
Being a novella, it's a short story but it was very enjoyable. I do wish it was longer but I liked it! I also liked how this book is different from the rest of the Play-by-Play series. And its holiday name is only because this story occurs during Christmas. There's not a lot to do with the actual holiday but I still enjoyed it! And you don't need to have read the other books in the series to get this one but I do recommend the entire series!
The Perfect Play (A Play-by-Play Novel) Book 1
The new Play-by-Play romance from the New York Times bestselling author of All Wound Up.
Tori Baldwin is a successful sports agent who enjoys her work, her clients, and, on the occasional free night, an uncomplicated love life.
While unwinding over Christmas in Hawaii, she chances upon a surfing competition, and all the lean hard men that come with it—especially Alex McConnell, a young surfer at the top of his game, and his sexy business manager, Ben Reynolds. The attraction Tori feels for both men is off the charts and fueling the hottest passion she’s ever felt.
Soon, Alex and Ben will move on to the next big wave and Tori will head home. But as each night passes, Alex and Ben’s feelings for Tori swell. And for the first time ever, Tori’s thinking twice about the men she’ll leave behind—and a kind of love that could change all their lives forever.
