Changing the Game

Changing the Game - Jaci Burton I'm all over the place with my feelings about this book. (well from 2.5 to 3.5)

It was my second Jaci Burton, and I enjoyed the first. I do feel like these have a better level of maturity than most sports romances, and I've grown to enjoy the family dynamic quite a bit.

Also, the sex in this book was very very delicious. I added one star because of that.

That Gavin saw through Elizabeth's tough exterior I loved. He was clearly interested in her, his straight dirty talk was yummy, but what I didn't quite buy was his reluctance to admit he was in love. Or even in like. He seemed to clearly understand that he had deep affection from the get go.

While his issues were different from Mick's, they aren't as compelling (in ways), and I cannot say that I can distinguish the heroes in the two books. Her heroines are unique, however. In the same turn, Tara's and Elizabeth's reluctance are very similar and manifests for two different reasons in the same way.

I'll continue to read this series. I mean I really enjoyed the hot scenes enough to see if the characters start to seem more developed and unique in the future books. If it continues to feel like setting and sports get swapped out along with hero/heroines names, I'll begin passing on Jaci Burton books.

And that star I added for great sexy times...I take away for goatees. You've been warned, authors.
