Shot on Gold by Jaci Burton

Book- Will, a hockey player thru and thru and loves his life as one. This will be his second year at the winter games for Team USA.  At his first games, Will played, and partied, too hard. This year, however, he wants to take a step back to be in the moment.

Amber, a figure skater thru and thru, is attending the winter games for a third, and final, time. Although she is 26-years-old, she is considered past the “prime” age of competitors.  Nevertheless, she worked on a new routine and honed her skills for 4 years.  Amber has stood on the medal stand, but this year she is going for gold and nothing will get in her way. Always the good girl, she rarely left her room unless it was to practice. This year, Amber wants to do it all! Can she party, find a man to help her let loose, and win the gold?

I adore this series and like most of the other books, this one is likewise amazing. Author Jaci Burton does a fantastic job of detailing life in Olympic Village. I was drawn into the story and felt like I was experiencing life alongside Amber and Will. Of course, this is a romance novel, so the ever-looming question prevalent in most romance novels is,
“Will they stay together forever or was it just a fling?”  I thought of at least a dozen endings to this story, but Burton went above and beyond in her storytelling, tying things up with a little bow on top of the whole package.

This is the 14th book in the Play by Play series. We have several of the books in our library holdings.  Most of the titles are available on Hoopla.
