All Wound Up by Jaci Burton
In the latest Play-by-Play novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Quarterback Draw, a sexy baseball player is done striking out…
Tucker Cassidy is going through a slump—but not on the field. It’s his dating life that’s suffering. After having a painful altercation involving his ex-girlfriend’s knee, Tucker is convinced it couldn’t get worse…until a gorgeous doctor comes to the rescue at his most embarrassing moment.
As the daughter of the owner of the St. Louis Rivers, Dr. Aubry Ross has been around jocks all her life. She knows the ins and outs of all their games, and she isn’t interested in playing.
When Tucker repeatedly lands in the hospital where she’s working, Aubry starts to think he’s getting injured just to see her. Tucker is both funny and sexy, and Aubry is pleasantly surprised to discover he actually respects her job.
When her father disapproves of their relationship, Aubry knows she’d rather lose Tucker than have him lose his job. But Tucker isn’t about to let threats of a trade get in the way of a game-changing love…
All Wound Up is the tenth installment in the Play by Play series. In this novel we experience the ups and downs of Aubry, an ER physician and Tucker, a pitcher for a professional baseball team and their careers. Aubry is dedicated to her career and repeatedly passes by on her chances to let loose and have fun. Tucker has his mind set on showing her just how fun he can be. The family ties for both Aubry and Tucker are solid and almost too perfect. The plot seemed rather predictable, but how they worked through their struggles kept me reading. Aubry and Tucker lead busy, hectic schedules with their careers and responsibilities so it was refreshingly hot and sexy each time they joined forces…at the hospital, one of their places, or at her parents. The spark was present but I longed for more angst while reading All Wound Up. The character development and plot was fluid and I wanted Aubry and Tucker to find their balance between work and play. The dates Tucker planned for Aubry were some of my favorite scenes in this novel, which left me swooning over his thoughtfulness and sweetness. Give this a try and find your next book crush!
