Except the sexual chemistry between them is so charged, Alicia’s tempted to oblige Garrett just about anything. But both their careers are at stake—one bad move and it’s game over for both of them.Garrett also feels the hot sparks between them, and the way he figures it, what better therapy is there than sex? Now all he has to do is convince the woman with the power to make the call.

One of my favorite storylines/tropes is a hero and heroine who–before they are together–have to live in the same house, share a hotel room, etc. Lots of opportunities for sexual tension in that kind of scenario, and this book sure played that up. Thought the chemistry between the hero and heroine was great–and since this is one of Burton’s books it’s even hotter when the H/h get together. Alicia may be my favorite heroine in the series; she’s very confident in herself and in her career.

Really enjoying this series–I’m already looking forward to the next book!

Finally a solid installment in a series that has been mostly uninspired.

Alicia and Garrett are an endearing couple and their romance is sweet and sexy with no unnecessary angst. In a series with so many obnoxious heroes, Garrett is a breath of fresh air. He starts off somewhat self-absorbed but turns into a thoughtful and caring man unafraid to apologize when he is in the wrong. Alicia is honest and forthright with no qualms about calling Garrett on his BS.

There are some entertaining cameo appearances by the rest of the Riley family and an intriguing reunion with Garrett’s college roommates who will apparently be the heroes of the next few books.

All in all, my persistence with the series has paid off and I can only hope that this positive trend will continue.

Strong and sexy romance. As I’m so far behind on the series, and don’t want to read any others out of order, I’m listening to audiobooks to catch up. I really loved how kickass Alicia is and that she didn’t give Garrett and inch when they started working together to get him ready to pitch again. The chemistry was strong between them and I fell in love with them as a couple. Yes mistakes were made on both sides, but I loved that both were big enough to own mistakes and make it right.

Thrown by a Curve made me remember why I loved this series when it first came out and why I need to listen to all the books to be ready for new ones in the series.

Mmmm, I love me some Play by Play Series men. I get completely caught up in the characters Jaci Burton creates and I get hooked. I have loved every book in this series and each one is entertaining, easy to read, and super hot. I like that Alicia is confident and that Garrett is cocky and they both take their jobs and future seriosly. You get to catch up with the rest of the Riley family and can anyone else believe Nathan is already 18! Dare I hope there will be a book about him in the future? (Please!) I am also very much looking forward to reading One Sweet Ride and getting to know Gray 😉
