No one brings the sexy out in sports like Jaci Burton, the author of the New York Times bestselling Play-by-Play novels. Now, she puts together a holiday hat trick with three novellas featuring the hottest sports around: baseball, hockey, and surfing—because hard bodies are always in season…
Holiday Games 
For the high-achieving Elizabeth and her husband, baseball player Gavin Riley, failure is not an option. So when it comes to making a baby, they’re not about to let any holiday distractions get in the way of their necessary pleasures…
Holiday on Ice 
It’s the season for giving and superstar hockey player Patrick “Trick” Niemeyer is ready to give dancer Stella Slovinski his heart wrapped up in bow. But he’ll have to melt the ice surrounding her heart to keep her from walking away…
Hot Holiday Nights 
Christmas in Hawaii brings sports agent Tori Baldwin two presents: a young surfer at the top of his game and his business manager. But this hot threesome has to decide if the romantic wave they’ve caught is nothing more than a vacation fling, or the kind of love that could change their lives forever…


Sexy, passionate, and a little risqué.

This novel is a compilation of three holiday novellas, Holiday Games, Holiday on Ice, and Hot Holiday Nights.

Holiday Games is a sweet, fun, engaging novel that lets us have a brief visit with the Rileys once again and check back in with Liz and Gavin from Changing the Game (Book #2 in the Play-by-Play series) who are now eagerly hoping to add to their family, and Jenna and Ty from Taking a Shot (Book #3 in the Play-by-Play series) who are now in the final stages of planning their wedding and tying the knot. 

Holiday on Ice is the new, untold, steamy romance between Drew’s teammate, Patrick “Trick” Niemeyer and the elegant, graceful dancer, Stella Slovinski.

And Hot Holiday Nights is the scorchingly erotic, threesome story between Tori, a successful sports agent; Alex, an international surfer phenom; and Ben, Alex’s manager and ex-competitive surfer.

The writing, as always, is well done. The characters are independent, strong, sporty, and deliciously handsome. And the plot builds and flows nicely with a good dose of drama, chemistry, sexual tension, and sizzling sex scenes.

Overall, this is a fun, entertaining, easy read that would be a great “naughty” stocking stuffer.
