[Quotetastic] 4 stars- Shot on Gold (Play-by-Play #14) by Jaci Burton

They eat. They skate. They fuck.

What's not to love? lol
The Gist: The Olympic Winter Games. A sheltered figure skater deciding to have a little fun for a change and setting her sights not only on winning a gold medal but snagging some sheet time with one of the hockey gods who's always the life of the party. Mmhm
Oh yes. These two were adorable! An extrovert and an introvert. The life of the party and the wall flower. Vastly experienced and pretty damn innocent. I loved the differences between Amber and Will and that it actually worked well. They fit each other. They're both extremely hard working, dedicated, ambitious. I loved seeing her come out of her shell. Stand up to her mom, making friends, gaining some experiences in life. And I loved seeing him settle down a bit from his previously slutty ways. He's a good guy and incredibly caring.

Now the heat. Yeah. Amber might have been rather innocent at the start of things but these two fuck like bunnies. And it's seriously hot. And creative now and again.

I just had a good time with this one. I don't think I've read one set at the winter Olympics before so that was rather entertaining. The village the athletes live in, the time with teammates and rivals, practice, qualifications, the pressure of winning and dealing with potential losses. It was exciting and damn if by the end I wasn't just as nervous as them over whether they'd win gold or not. lol

All in all, Shot on Gold was delicious sporty romantic fun. It'll leave you smiling and maybe thinking about tracking down a hockey player all your own.


This one made me laugh. 
"If you don't medal here, will your heart be broken?"

He had to think about that. "I guess not. But it'll suck."

"I think I've made my point."

He swept his hand upward, cupping her breast, teasing her nipple with his fingers until her breathing grew faster.

"And what was that point?"

She made a moaning sound. "I forget. I'm sure if you fuck me it'll jog my memory."

He rolled over to grab a condom. "My pleasure."

Will "Mad Dog" Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Games, and he couldn't be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She's beautiful, ambitious and driven--everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she's competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing's going to get in her way--until she meets Will. He's an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.
