REVIEW – RULES OF CONTACT BY JACI BURTON
Rules of Contact is a sports romance and while I enjoyed it didn’t quite hit that spot with me that I look for in a book.
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 me. I was looking for some sort of build up to their relationship and I didn’t quite get that.
There is a little bump at near then end of the book that may tear them apart but in all honesty I almost scrunched up my nose in a little bit of irritation at it based on the relationship they have. I didn’t find the issue really fit the story and without spoiling it for others, I was almost annoyed that it happens to begin with.
For me this was just an ok read.
A defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers, Flynn Cassidy is used to being in the spotlight—he just doesn’t enjoy it. But if getting in front of the cameras will help his new restaurant succeed, he’s willing. Now if he could just meet a woman who loved him and not his fame…
After her divorce, Amelia Lawrence is thrilled to start over as head chef at Ninety-Two. It’s just the opportunity she needs to heat up her career—if only she wasn’t wildly attracted to her sexy new boss. Their chemistry might be sizzling hot, but Amelia has no intention of being burned again.
Amelia is genuine and fun and Flynn can’t get enough of her—and Amelia loves every second she spends with the tough but tender Flynn. But trust is a hard fought battle for both of them. Breaking the rules of contact and surrendering to their passion was easy, but are they willing to risk their hearts to win at the game of love?
