Jaci Burton is a medal winner with SHOT ON GOLD, the fourteenth book in the Play by Play series. Will "Mad Dog" Madigan is excited to go back to the Winter Games for the second time as a member of the U.S. Hockey team. He meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane, who is competing for the third time. Both are determined to win gold but decide to have some fun together along the way. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.
Jaci Burton does a great job with her character development. Being a Chicagoan, I like that Will grew up there. He has a supportive family. He is a good guy. Amber has had a lonely life. Her mother put a lot of unnecessary pressure on her. I like that she meets Will and becomes more social. The two have great chemistry and make a cute couple.
SHOT ON GOLD is a great book to put you in the mood for the Olympics or any winter sporting event. Jaci Burton does an excellent job describing the various sporting events that take place during the novel. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
