[Kame's Review]: "All Wound Up"

All Wound Up by Jaci Burton
Publisher: Berkley (August 4, 2015)
Series: Play-by-Play, 10
Genre: Contemporary Romance

In the latest Play-by-Play novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Quarterback Draw, a sexy baseball player is done striking out...

Tucker Cassidy is going through a slump—but not on the field. It’s his dating life that’s suffering. After having a painful altercation involving his ex-girlfriend’s knee, Tucker is convinced it couldn’t get worse…until a gorgeous doctor comes to the rescue at his most embarrassing moment.

As the daughter of the owner of the St. Louis Rivers, Dr. Aubry Ross has been around jocks all her life. She knows the ins and outs of all their games, and she isn’t interested in playing.

When Tucker repeatedly lands in the hospital where she’s working, Aubry starts to think he’s getting injured just to see her. Tucker is both funny and sexy, and Aubry is pleasantly surprised to discover he actually respects her job.

When her father disapproves of their relationship, Aubry knows she’d rather lose Tucker than have him lose his job. But Tucker isn’t about to let threats of a trade get in the way of a game-changing love…

Kame's Review:

This is my first Play By Play book since Jaci Burton ran out of Riley family to write about. I requested it because it focused on a baseball player.

I liked Tucker, and him being a twin and a pitcher was fun for me. Aubrey is a talented doctor and I enjoyed the dynamics of her challenging career and the blossoming relationship.

Play by Play books are known for their sexy scenes. Where the scenes were plentiful they were not high on the steamy or sensual side - I tend to like intimate scenes to be more plot worthy.

The conflict that tears them apart - as required by all romance books - kind of irked me, the resolution not as satisfying as I hoped.

In the end the book served its purpose - I enjoyed it - however with the typical plot points and not as much meat in the story as I generally like I will probably refrain from purchasing future books in this series - due to the cost - and borrow them from the library or pick up at an UBS.

Thanks for the review, Kame! I'm way behind on this series myself; so many books, so little time.

Have you kept up with this series? Do you have a favorite?
