In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Score, opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates--and go for the gold...

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.

Shot on Gold is a completely fun read and just in time for everyone getting in the mood for Winter Olympics 2018.

Will is a hockey player on his second time around to the Winter Games. He is playing for the US team and enjoying the social life the Olympic games’ village provide. He met Amber Sloane last time he went but she was shy, reserved and totally focused on her figure skating.

Amber has sacrificed her entire life for parents skating ambitions. She is focused and determined to make them proud and bring home the gold this year because it will be her last year to compete in the Olympics. She doesn’t know what the future will bring but she is ready to start finding out what she really wants out of life.

When her roommate convinces her to go out to party with her fellow athletes, Amber runs into Will and his irresistible ways. Will and Amber make the perfect couple during the games its what comes after that has them worried.

I’ve been with Burton from the start of her Play by Play series and I have to say that I’m loving the transition this series has taken from a more erotic romance to contemporary sports romance. She is writing characters with genuine heart, real life circumstances and dreams and is truly rocking it. Don't get me wrong we still get that steam but its steam with a deep character connection. If you are looking for a great contemporary sports romance, check out Jaci Burton’s Shot on Gold.

I received this ARC copy of Shot on Gold from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review. Shot on Gold is set for publication Feb. 13, 2018.
