Publisher's Summary

Football star Cole Riley is notorious for doing as he pleases - on the field and off. He parties hard and fights harder. But if he doesn't clean up his act, his career is over - so Cole reluctantly agrees to work with image makeover consultant Savannah Brooks. He's not used to being told what to do, especially by some (admittedly hot) Southern belle. As for Savannah, she's not convinced she can transform this cocky (and aggressively sexy) force of nature. But she's determined to give it her best shot.
When the sparks start to fly, Savannah lays down the ground rules: no personal complications. If she can turn off the tingle she feels every time Cole gives her a hot stare with his gorgeous baby blues, he can turn off his desire as well. But for two people determined to have it all, a hands-off policy can only last so long before one of them yields.

It was good but nothing memorable to stand out.

Playing to Win is the fourth book in Jaci Burton’s Play by Play series, Cole Riley hasn’t been able to find his place with a football teams. After being traded to his 3rd NFL Team, Cole needs to clean up his image. In comes Savannah Brooks, a Georgia Peach who’s an expert at making over an image. Cole doesn't think that there’s anything wrong with his image. If his image is tainted, it’s because of the media, not him. Savannah’s job is to convince Cole to learn how to be less self absorbed and become a team player if he wants to have a long career with the Traders. I really like this series. I felt like something was missing for me in this book. I could not connect with their relationship. I liked Cole and Savannah as individuals but wasn't completely sold on the chemistry and the attraction. What I want between the hero and heroines is hot, sizzling chemistry with a little angst thrown in. There was none of that. Cole and Savannah together was very blah. Cole wasn't happy about having Savannah underfoot, making over his image and I expected more conflict. I wanted passionate, heated arguments. There were arguments but they felt flat. Playing to Win was an ok read. Some parts were boring and I felt that we never found out why Cole closed himself off from people. I'm not sure if I want to give up or continue with the series yet.

Not as Hot as Books 1 and 2

I miss the original Riley boys.. Jenna... not so much... Cole is meant to be the bad boy but he is just .... I don't know lacking something in his story... I think we need to move on from this. I think I am going to skip until we get to the race car driver...
