In the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of All Wound Up, a football hot shot and his best friend’s sister are breaking all the rules.

All the Right Moves

For Barrett Cassidy, playing defense for the Tampa Hawks is a dream come true. And now he may have discovered his dream woman. Harmony Evans, once the sweet, gawky teenage sister of his best friend and teammate has grown into a smart, gorgeous woman with moves he finds hard to resist. But he knows he can’t get involved with his best friend’s sister—it’s guy code.
Harmony has always gone after what she wants with single-minded determination, from her independence to her education to her career in interior design. She never expected her youthful crush on Barrett to develop into something deeper. And she’s not about to let some ridiculous man rules or her brother stand in her way.
When the chemistry is this combustible, lines tend to get crossed. And when Barrett and Harmony’s secret gets out, it just might be game over...

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    I love all of Jaci Burton's books, I've read every book in the series. As an AA woman it's rare for me to read a romance novel that's not urban about a woman that looks like me. I loved the story, but I felt like Harmony was just too stereotypical at times. It's annoying to read the "sista girl" act, can't get her hair wet, etc. Frankly it's lazy, and I think Jaci Burton can do better. See Lauren Dane's character Tuesday in "Broken Open". I have never wrote a review before but felt compelled. Overall, this is a good book. It has everything I expect of a Jaci Burton book: a great love story, funny moments, sexy times, and the best ending. Worth a read despite lacking the depth and originality Jaci Burton usually brings to her heroines.
