BOOK REVIEW: Thrown by a Curve (Play by Play, #5) by Jaci Burton

Alicia and Garrett what can I say??!
Hmmm....Well, I LOVED THEM TOGETHER. They're chemistry is sizzling and their conversations are so real and funny [well, to me that is].

My Casting for Garrett:

My Casting for Alicia [but with darker hair]:

-Out of all the Play by Play series, BOTH CHARACTERS were the most consistent and "in character" throughout the entire story.
-I personally loved Alicia's character because she's not weak and tells Garrett like it is. In essence, I guess it could be perceived as a Riley family trait since her cousin Jenna is the same way, -BUT I feel as if Alicia's storyline was the easiest to relate to and understand her motives.
She is after all, one of of the newbie sports medicine specialists, and is working to gain her worth since people tend to insinuate automatically that she got "shooed in" thanks to her baseball pro cousin Gavin and her sports affiliated family members.

-At times, I didnt know if I wanted to straddle Garrett's neck or straddle him in general since he was such a pain the butt to Alicia when he resisted his treatment. But then again, it was kind of funny her always giving "you're not gonna get rid of me buddy whether you like me or not since im the key to helping YOU out" attitude. Very sassay and suave that Alicia Riley that one. ;)

-AND LASTLY, IT TOOK FOREVER FOR THEM TO HAVE SEX!! GRRR. NAH, lol. It's understandable though why it took that long since it would jeopardize both Alicia and Garrett's jobs/careers as there is a no fraternizing policy.

-During the course of the story you will meet some of Garrett's friends from college. One of them is Gray which will have his own titled up as "One Sweet Ride" due in May 2013.
-It's funny cause all of Garrett's friends normally don't care for women coming to their "get togethers" but Garrett brings Alicia along and their instantly smitten with her. Especially Gray. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS NEXT BOOK. I soo want to beg for an ARC from the author but i know that would look bad. lol. Until then guys!! :)

My Rating:

-Overall : 9
-Plot : 9
-Writing : 9
-Characters : 9
-Cover : 9
