It never fails that the audio cover is a crappy photo-shopped picture. For example, check out Hannah Howell's, "Highland Avenger" paperback versus audiobook covers. Or the covers for Pamela Clare's, Breaking Point. Both are enough to turn me off the story! Better to use no photo then a crappy one.(less)

For someone who sometimes reads my reviews knows that I have a weakness it sports romance. I also have a huge sentiment for the Play by Play series. I am delighted that it continues. We again have a new wonderful athletes family, Cassidys! And great and warm relationships.

All Wound Up is my third book from the Play-By-Play series. All of them can be read as a standalone and you can read them out of order (I did that).

All Wound Up is Tucker and Aubry’s story.

Aubry is a doctor. Her father owns the baseball team and because of that, she has no intentions of dating a baseball player. She’s 100% focused on her career and she wants to save lives. Tucker is a baseball player. His team is owned by Aubry’s father.

2.5 - 3 Stars

Disappointed with this, it would have been far better with a little more story and less sex!.....There are not many books that I wish the sex was toned down but sadly this is one of them. There was no real romance going on between these two, I didn't feel a connection therefore I just found the sex scenes as boring and ended up skipping them towards the end! Shame as I love Jaci Burton......Although I wasn't bowled over with this one she is still a favourite and auto-buy author.

All Wound Up was a totally spur of the moment read. It’s the tenth book in the series and I haven’t read any of the previous books, so I didn’t even contemplate reading it at first. You know how I am about reading in order! That is, until I read some quotes from the book and knew I had to meet these characters. I am so glad I decided to go for it, because All Wound Up was such a fun book!

I absolutely loved every single thing about Tucker and Aubry's romance. I love Aubry is working to become a doctor and Tucker is a MLB pitcher, so each of their crazy work schedules totally and completely work for their relationship. They had pretty amazing chemistry from the moment they first met and it only grew stronger the more time they spent together. Seriously they had some smoking hot love scenes going on in this book, which I've come to always expect from a Jaci Burton book.

Decent, workmanlike story wrapped up in layers of (rather repetitive) sex. All of this leading up to a rather predictable climax.

I had read the first few books of the 'Play by Play' series, but gave up on it due to the heavily gratuitous sex to story ratio. All Wound Up had a little more storyline than I remember; but it was a routine, predictable story. I would have liked more sports in a sport story.

All Wound Up is book ten of the Play by Play series. This book was a quick read with a heartwarming love story and lots of family sass.

Tucker is the only Cassidy boy to follow his love for baseball and not pursue a football career like the rest of his family has done. He’s the star pitcher for The Rivers baseball team. He’s worked his ass off to get where he is in his career and he’s finally accomplished all he’s hoped for. He’s a c

I feel like I say this before every sports romance book I review, but I am total sucker for a good sports romance. There's something about athletes that is just so attractive, so I love reading love stories that involve them. Jaci Burton is already on book #10 in her sports romance series and while I have really enjoyed the other books I've read, All Wound Up missed the mark for me.

This is my first Play by Play novel, but despite being number ten in this long-standing series, I wasn't about to turn away from a sexy baseball star. For starters, baseball = arm porn (in my mind, anyways). But I'd heard such good things about this series of inter-connected standalones, I knew I wanted a taste. And what a taste it was!!

Tucker Cassidy is having a bad night when he meets Dr. Aubry Ross for the first time. After taking a hard shot to the balls, Aubry's on hand to make sure the dam

Jaci Burton is back with another story to melt your heart and other things! Yes book ten in her Play by Play series takes us right back into the heart of the Cassidy family but this time it's not a football playing brother it's Tucker the talented baseball pitcher and he is going to become the standard you hold up when you next select your favourite book boyfriend!
Tucker may be a hot shot on the field but he's no slouch off it either. Now if he could just let his rather pushy girlfriend down gen

What happened with this book???? There was very little substance to this story. I'm shocked by how unoriginal this plot was. Aubry was a horrible character who would say one thing and then act and do another. There was very little to their relationship than sex. The book is full of sex. Which wouldn't be an issue if we got a good story to go with it. Worst of the series. ...more

Another great installment in the Play-by-Play series.

Tucker = hot! Black hair that's slightly long, green eyes and black rimmed glasses? Yeah, I'm a goner.
Jaci Burton is one of the only authors who's sports books I can read. She puts in just enough so that you get an overall feel for the sport, but doesn't try to go into so much detail that the story gets lost, or even worse, you can tell the author knows nothing about the sports they're writing about.

Aubry has grown up with baseball her entire life. With her father being being the owner of a professional baseball team, how could she have not? But she's always tried to keep her life separate from

With one of the most unusual ways of introducing the novel’s love interests ever, Burton gets this tale off to a start laden with sexual innuendo.

All Wound Up by Jaci Burton is a sweet yet steamy addition to the Play-By-Play series. This installment pairs up baseball player Tucker Cassidy with Aubrey Ross, an ER resident and the team owner's daughter. The sparks fly at their first (unorthodox but funny) meeting but neither has the time to date. Or so they keep telling themselves...

Tucker is a pitcher for the St. Louis Rivers and while he is having a stellar baseball season, his dating life is a different story. Since he spends so much tim

Summer is all about heat and baseball so All Wound Up is the perfect read for this time of year! This is the second Play-by-Play book that I’ve read by Jaci Burton and I have to say, I am big fan. I thoroughly enjoyed this one because while it is steamy, and hot as hell, it also has a good storyline with two strong, likable characters in Tucker Cassidy and Aubry Ross. They compliment each other perfectly and their chemistry is off the charts.

Jaci Burton is the queen of sports romance! All Wound Up is another home run in the play by play series.

Tucker Cassidy is the newest pitcher to the St. Louis Rivers Baseball team but the boy seems to have the worst luck. After a painful knee from his ex-girlfriend to the groin, that leaves him in a ball of pain and at a team party much less, Tucker encounters Dr. Aubry Ross, daughter of the River Owner, and a beautiful woman who makes Tucker head spin just a bit. Tucker seems to be prone to hur

This is my first Play By Play book since Jaci Burton ran out of Riley family to write about. I requested it because it focused on a baseball player.

I liked Tucker, and him being a twin and a pitcher was fun for me. Aubrey is a talented doctor and I enjoyed the dynamics of her challenging career and the blossoming relationship.

Play by Play books are known for their sexy scenes. Where the scenes were plentiful they were not high on the steamy or sensual side - I tend to like intimate scene

My only issue is that sometimes when Aubry and Tucker spoke to each other, it seemed stiff and formal. Some things just seemed to lack emotion, almost like they were narrating.

I'm still a huge fan of this series. Can't wait for Barrett's book next! :)

This was a good read. Tucker is a baseball player and Aubrey is the coaches daughter. She never meant to fall in love but it happened. However, things got messy when her father threatened Tucker. Luckily in the end everyone came to their senses and they got their happy ending.

Dr. Aubry Ross only wanted to get some more wine for her parent’s party but duty calls when she sees a man writhing on the ground, clutching his

This was my first Jaci Burton story and I really liked it. I have given away several paperbacks featuring Ms. Burton and I need you all to return them to me. (Kidding. Just kidding. :) ) I liked the characters of Tucker and Aubrey. We also meet a few of Tucker’s brothers and the players from the team who were the subject of the other books.
