Sara Rider returns with the third book in the Perfect Play series—a fast-paced, icy hot romance featuring a sports agent fighting an attraction to the NHL’s bad boy…and his ability to melt her heart.
In this perfect book for romance and sports fans, professional sports agent Jillian Nichols knows how to play the game to get what she wants. But admitting to what she needs has always been a challenge. Will she ever let her guard down long enough to let someone in? Or will the bad boy hockey player Nick “the Punisher” Salinger have to fight harder than ever for a chance to win her heart?
Nick and Jillian were an interesting couple.
Their chemistry was great, full of heat, and their story was compelling. Most importantly, I believed them, their attraction, their reluctance to pursue it, their belief that they were doing the right thing staying professional, it all worked for me.
There were parts that I thought were a little drawn out, but nothing that detracted enough for me to put it down or even get frustrated with the story. I do wish a little more time had been spent with them as a couple and exploring that dynamic, but it wasn't bad...just something I would have liked to have seen for Nick and Jillian.
I liked the resolution of their story, and the place where they ended up after everything. I thought it felt real, authentic. A lot of times when there is a lot of drama, it is not balanced well. In this book, it really was with an ending that felt like it fit with the drama the characters were put through. I appreciated that it felt authentic.
I recommend this book.
