Rules of Contact

When I started getting active on Goodreads, Jaci Burton was one of the authors whose books I binged on. She was one of the few authors who are writing interconnected standalone sports romance series long before the category became what it is now. So I have a soft spot for her books.
Unfortunately, this was a dud for me. I felt no connection to either Flynn or Amelia. I don't see any chemistry between them . Their romance felt forced, and I couldn't care less if they get togeth ...more
(view spoiler)[I just can't understand why any woman would want to be with a man whom she saw dating 4 OWs within a couple of months...
Because she/h was special and could tame the beast?
Because she was sooooo different and all OWs only wanted his fame (she called them camera-whores)?
Common! Give us, women, more credit! We are also interested in money and big c*ck!
Ciao! (hide spoiler)]
“Tell me what you need.”
“An orgasm would be nice.”
The 12th installment in Jaci Burton’s best selling Play By Play series gives readers a sexy, sweet, and humorous romance between two people whose trust has been broken by those they cared about. More laid back than previous books in terms of conflict; food and family are the main ingredients that are used to create this spicy/sweet romance.
Our protagonists, ...more
Love found me sweet and sexy sports story, Rules of Contact, by Jaci Burton. The romance poured off the pages while the heat set them ablaze, both penetrating straight through me. Rules of Contact is a good old-fashioned love story full of sweetness, swoon, and smolder with a forbidden twist.
I fell in ins ...more
No surprise here. Jaci Burton delivers another sweet addition to the Play by Play series. I devoured this book in one sitting, as I usually do with her books, even when I think I need sleep. Who needs sleep really? I was beyond excited to read this one because it features a chef along with our hot athlete. I am a sucker for foodie stories and I was very excited to see this explored in this book. Although I don't think this element was explored as much as I would've liked (I mean... lots of sexy...more

Amelia Lawrence was the beautiful and reserved head chef for Ninety- Two. The attraction was always strong but they stayed away from each other for professional reasons, until one day Flynn decided he'd ...more

FINALLY, Flynn Cassidy has his day! I will always love the Rileys but the Cassidys quickly won me over the minute Flynn showed up on the page. I have been anticipating his story and eager to see the kind of woman that would get this charming hero's heart. Flynn has shown up in past Play-By-Play novels as he was opening his restaurant, Ninety-Two. Rules of Contact focuses on Flynn as his project opens; fans flock ...more
Time to call this series quits for me.
Flynn Cassidy is used to having the press around, seeing as he's a defensive end for the Sabers. Unfortunately, he's also used to women using him for the cameras and fame and has yet to find someone worth settling down with. Amelia Lawrence does not want to trust a man ag ...more

Okay, first off let me say that this cover is MAGNIFICENT! But what's inside is EVEN BETTER! Jaci Burton writes steamy heart felt sports romance like no other! Flynn and Amelia are a couple that I won't soon forget.
Flynn Cassidy is known for playing football, but his passion is split between football and cooking. Which is why he owns a restaurant named Ninety-Two. His head Chef Amelia is the best at her job! And after seeing Flynn struggle with finding women not after the lime ...more

Can you believe that this is my first read from Jaci Burton? I know, I know... what the heck is wrong with me? I have actually had this series on my TBR List for a couple years, but someone told me I needed to read from the beginning and I just haven't had the time to fit 10+ books onto the reading calendar. But I am very happy that I finally took the plunge and started reading about these yummy athletic heroes! Not having read the earlier books, I didn't feel lost. There were other couples popp ...more

RULES OF CONTACT is the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. I really enjoyed it. I loved Flynn but it took me a while to warm up to Amelia. I liked her by the end of the story though. I enjoyed the storyline and the romance was steamy. RULES OF CONTACT is the twelfth book in Jaci Burton's Play-by-Play series but...more
I love this football series that seems to age like fine wine – if the wine is sexy and hot! Flynn and Amelia are not strangers to each other or this series and I couldn’t wait to see what these two chemistry-laden characters would get up to…
Bonding over good food and hot loving, the star football player and the ace chef in the kitchen had sparks flying from their very first meal together. They are professionals and keep their distance until they ...more
Flynn Cassidy is a defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers and has recently opened his own restaurant, the Ninety-Two. He wanted the restaurant to stand on its own which is why he used his number as the name for it and not his own name. He has hired Amelia L ...more
For me personally it lacked a little bit of the butterflies that I like to get with books I read. Flynn and Amelia went from coworkers who didn't initially seem to have any attraction to each other to full on can't get enough of each other. I quite liked Amelia and her personality, I found her to be quirky, bold, and she had a good head on her shoulders. Flynn was just ok for ...more
This is a great mix of intense attraction, friendship, family, food, sports, and romance.
It is an entertaining story that combines a hunky, muscular, tattooed football player, (need I say more, just look at that cover) with an independent, strong, attractive chef, in a plot filled with smoking chemistry, sporty tidbits, delicious food, and sizzling passion.
If you like sporty contemporary romance with a little spice I can’t think anyone else who ...more
Rules of Contact is a hot, steamy story filled with laughs, tears and a beautiful love story. Flynn Cassidy is a professional football player who just opened his own restaurant. The women he dates seem more into the spotlight then they are into him. Amelia Lawrence is the head chef in Flynn's restaurant. She is still reeling from her divorce and doesn't want anything to do w ...more
He cocked a brow. “Did you seriously just ask me to decide between sex with you and football with my family?”
“I guess I did.”
