Series: Play by Play Book #8.5 (novella)
Author: Jaci Burton
Blurb: In this original holiday novella in the Play-By-Play series, New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton gives readers the gift of “plenty of romance, sexy men, hot steamy loving, and humor.” (Smexy Books)
Superstar hockey player Patrick “Trick” Niemeyer and dancer Stella Slovinski have picked up where they left off a year ago, resuming their hot, uncomplicated affair. Stella refuses to call it dating, or a relationship. But lately, Trick is looking for more…
Stella’s been burned before—in a relationship she never talks about—not with her family, not with her friends, and definitely not with Trick. But now it’s the holiday season and Trick is determined to give Stella his heart wrapped up in a bow. He knows Stella is the right woman for him, but he’ll have to melt the ice surrounding her heart to keep her from walking away.
Includes a preview of Jaci Burton’s QUARTERBACK DRAW and LOVE AFTER ALL.
Thoughts: I really enjoyed this short little Christmas tale from the Play-by-Play series by Jaci Burton – in fact, I loved it. It was the perfect little mix of a modern day couple ‘on- again-off-again’ – nothing to serious – but yet is filled these sweet, heart grabbing moments. And something that develops into to so much more!
While it is only novella length and makes for a quick read, it leaves you with the satisfaction of a full length novel though.
I thoroughly enjoyed it – and I love, love, LOVE Trick…he really makes the story in this one!
