This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Trevor Shay has it all—a successful football and baseball career, and any woman he wants. But when he finds out his college mentor’s daughter is in trouble, he drops everything to come to her aid.
Haven Briscoe has finally landed a dream job as a sportscaster for a major network. But she hasn’t been able to move past the recent death of her beloved father, and it’s affecting her career. A plum assignment following the daily life of sports superstar Trevor Shay might be just the inspiration she needs…
Trevor will do anything to spark life back into Haven, including letting her into every aspect of his world. The chemistry between them flames higher than one of Trevor’s home runs and faster than his dashes to the end zone. But as they grow closer, Haven stumbles onto Trevor’s closely guarded secret, one he’s hidden his entire life. And despite his protests, now it’s Haven’s turn to put everything on hold to help Trevor. Will he let her in and trust her with a secret that could blow his professional and personal world apart? 

From Publishers Weekly

May 12, 2014 – Burton's eighth Play by Play sports-themed contemporary (after Melting the Ice) is a sizzling erotic romance with heart. Rookie TV sports reporter Haven Briscoe is trying to cope with her beloved father's death when she is assigned the story of a lifetime: interviewing her college crush, baseball and football player Trevor Shay. Haven soon learns that Trevor reciprocates her feelings, and their chemistry is off-the-charts passionate. But Trevor is keeping an enormous secret from Haven one that he feels tremendous shame about and that he's positive will change her love for him. It's up to Haven to prove to Trevor that she's in it for the long haul. Throughout their story, Burton provides glimpses of the happy endings enjoyed by couples from earlier books in the series. This red-hot yet sweet novel and its well-developed characters will satisfy series fans.

Not up to par

Wasn't expecting this story to be tough to finish but it was. This box didn't have half the zest of the other stories. Disappointed :(

Another winner by Jaci

Wow one of the best books by Jaci! Loved how she wrote this story. It was very romantic and oh those sizzling sex scenes wow!! Loved how she brings in all of her other characters from previous books. Looking forward to reading the next one but hoping she writes Nathan's story of love too!!
