      I liked this one. It was simple and didn't have the unecessary push and pull drama lama that books often have in romances. It was sexy and cute. And not over the top.

      Review posted: Happily Ever After - ReadsBlog rating: CTrevor Shay has been close with Haven Briscoe’s parents for years when they were the college “parents” to him and his group of athlete friends. Haven’s father recently passed away and she’s not doing well in dealing with the pain and grief. She’s letting a sportscaster job that has been her dream for so long slip away and without a big story to bring to the table she’ll be heading home. The thought of going home doesn’t sound [...]

      DNF at 31%I don't even have the inclination to write a real review for this so here's (essentially) a Play-by-Play of my thoughts while reading this book.I'm a bitch. Chick's grieving her father, who died about a year ago, and all I can think is 'Stop feeling sorry for yourself.' Yes, I know that grief takes its own time. I'm still grieving my aunt (she was more like a sister to me), who passed nearly a decade ago. But I still participated in my life. I didn't just let my career fall by the weig [...]

      I received An Advanced Readers Copy from First To Read in exchange for my honest reviewThis series has been amazing as a whole. Each book has been a real page turner and I am so happy I was selected to read an advance copy of Straddling the Line. Like each of the books in this series it did not disappoint.So the last few books we were introduced to a group of college buddies that shared a dorm and grew very close to their dorm parents Bill and Ginger Briscoe. We learned that sometimes we are luc [...]

      Straddling The Line es el octavo libro de la serie Play By Play de Jaci Burton y tiene como protagonistas a Trevor y Haven, personajes que conocemos en los libros anteriores.Esta saga era una de mis favoritas hace años, le tenia un cariño especial porque fue una de las primeras series que recuerdo leer pero segun han ido pasando los años ( y los libros ) ha ido decayendo, ya no siento la misma ilusion que sentia, en parte porque los ultimos libros me han parecido bastante flojos y por otra pa [...]

      I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, but the later books in the series don't compare to books 1-3. Those Riley boys and Ty were D-I-R-T-Y and weren't afraid to show their women. I've missed that. STRADDLING THE LINE gets closer to that original formula. The characters and their relationship is still the main focus, but the author also brings sex back in as a secondary character. For me, that secondary character is important because during sex seems to be the only time Haven and Trevor are hone [...]

      This one was good but could have been excellent had Trevor's secret been revealed earlier and developed. I really liked Trevor - arrogant but sweet about it but the relationship with Haven Briscoe felt forced. They never really fought. Heck they never even argued. Everything ran very smoothly which was sort of boring. There was no conflict until the very end and even that was quickly glossed over. I'm wondering if future books are even worth reading. Maybe I'll just look at the yummy covers.

    9. Amanda on said:

      Straddling the Line by Jaci Burton was pretty much just fluff. I’m not saying that to be overly critical. I’m just being factual. It was fun, light-hearted, and incredibly smutty so it had all the ingredients necessary to compel me to want to finish the story. But, at the same time I can’t call this a masterpiece of contemporary romance either. Straddling the Line is Trevor and Haven’s story. Haven is a sports journalist dealing with the grief of losing her father. Trevor is a hot shot a [...]

      A medida que avanza la serie, me convencen menos los libros, los encuentro cada vez más planos y superficiales. Lo siento, no me ha llegado y eso que trata un tema interesante.

      I don't believe that I gave only 2 stars book in the Play by Play series. As usual in this series the best part of it is connected with family and friends. That's why this series is so popular. And those moments were again the best. As always there are also a good sex scene. What didn't work is too slow action. Everything has happened in the last 15%, I expected more.A long time ago I read other books and I love this family and friends thing. I've been waiting for this book because it is the las [...]

      Ahh how I love the sporty goodness that Jaci Burton masterfully creates. It's just make-you-tingle good! And this time not only is there a baseball player but he's a footballer to boot! *swoons* Straddling the Line was a super charged sports romance and a damn good time as Trevor caves to doing an interview for his late mentor's daughter and winds up rather taken by her.The quick of it is that life has been hard for Haven this past year. She landed her dream job but she also lost the man that me [...]

      What was the point of this story? Really? Haven Briscoe is grieving the the death of her father and is ready to give up on life. Her mom is concerned and shares all this with Trevor Shay, a family friend. Trevor plays both football and baseball and has conveniently never given a full interview. So he decides to get Haven back into life by giving her an exclusive.That's your story. Seriously, that it. Now I don't always mind a plotless book if it's relationship driven and the relationship is well [...]

      Hotness Rating 3 out of 5I really enjoyed Straddling the Line. I don't know how Jaci Burton does it. This is the 8th book of the Play by Play series, yet every book feels fresh and has new storylines. It just doesn't feel like the same story with a different sport and character names like many do when you get this far into a series.I loved Trevor as a character. He was a bit cocky, but never in an annoying "I am entitled way". It was more like "eh, since I'm so bad*ss at everything I do it's exp [...]

      4.5 starsMeet Trevor Shay. Well, we’ve met him already in previous books and I personally was anxious to read his book because I could tell there would be some crazy sparks that would fly between him and Haven. Trevor just became my favorite book boyfriend in this series right after Tyler Anderson. He is hot, sweet and just perfect.One thing I was surprised by with this book was the relationship between Trevor and Haven. She always had a crush on him since college and he couldn’t have looked [...]

      STRADDLING THE LINE was a nicely spicy sports romance featuring Haven Briscoe and Trevor Shay. They have known each other since college. Haven's dad and mom were the house parents to a house full of athletes. Trevor was one of them. Haven had a massive crush on Trevor but he didn't even notice. He was too busy being charming, skating around his schoolwork and developing his skills in baseball and football.When Trevor gets a call from Haven's mother saying that Haven isn't doing well after the de [...]

      Jaci Burton can write Sports Romance like no other. Her Play by Play series is seriously like crack to me! LOL. I can't get enough of these sexy sports figures and the strong women who come into their lives. Straddling the Line was not a disappointment. Trevor Shay does it all. He plays not only baseball but football too, leaving little room for romance. But when Trevor gets a call from his old dorm parent, asking him to step in to help her daughter, Trevor makes sure to help out.Enter Haven Bri [...]

      I thought this book was deeper than the rest of the series and it really got to me. Haven is dealing with her grief of losing her father. Trevor is helping her move on, at the same time as he is trying to keep a secret that he's kept hidden his entire life. Haven and Trevor are so sweet together. I loved how the book wrapped up and how the problems were dealt with. 4 1/2 stars

      Trevor Shay is successful both football and baseball professional player. Trevor wants to help Haven Briscoe so he hires her to write his biography. Trevor even thought he is amazing in sports, but he isn’t good with education.Haven is still grieving her father’s death.

      Empecé a leerlo y no sé por qué pero pensé al instante: Ya sé cuál será el gran secreto del protagonista.And guess what? Le atiné. Ya he leído libros así, así que no quería perder el tiempo.(view spoiler)[El protagonista es disléxico. Listo. Resuelto el problema. (hide spoiler)]

      Tenia ganas de leer esta historia ya que desde libros anteriores habían hablado del chush de Heaven por Trevor; por eso me dejo con la sensación que algo faltaba, no me gusto tanto

      Eighth in the Play-by-Play romantic sports series and revolving around friends and family in the sports field. The couple focus is on Haven Briscoe and Trevor Shay.My TakeThe way Straddling the Line started off…I dunno. I liked that Trevor was involved enough to want to help Ginger, but Haven irritated the hell out of me. She's had her "dream job" for…oooh…six whole weeks! And she's whining on and on about it. Admittedly she is whining on about how much she misses the dad who has been dead [...]

    24. It's Me - Yvette on said:

      This one didn't hold my interest, unfortunately. I made it all the way to chapter 17 and just couldn't make it any further. I was extremely bored and uninterested in the story. So many others have loved this series, but this one didn't work for me. Deducted one star because this narrator isn't my favorite; sure this brought down my overall rating.

    25. Sophia on said:

      Okay, I put this series off way too long. I've been aware of it since the first book came out and just never picked it up and then I topped it off by jumping right in with book eight in the series. Crazy I know! I love sports and this one offers a hero who did the Bo Jackson thing and straddled two different pro sports so I guess that was the push I needed. Fortunately for me, I did alright reading out of order and really enjoyed the story and the peek-ins with the past characters in the series [...]

      Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: While certainly steamy and well written, this story just didn’t have enough plot to keep me entertained.Opening Sentence: “Haven’s in trouble.”The Review:Haven hasn’t been the same since her dad died. She has what she always thought was her dream as a sports reporter, but she just can’t get herself motivated to work. Her mother sees this happening, and contacts Trevor, an old friend who is now a famous baseball and football star. [...]

      Rhayne‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4 STARSReview copy provided for an honest reviewWe are eight books into the Play by Play Series and each book is still just as exciting as the first. Straddling The Line really has a mix of everything a sports romance reader loves. We get lots of field action, lots of smoking sex, and cocky sexy athletes all wrapped around an original yet beautiful love story.Haven has been suffering the past year after the death of her father. She hasn’ [...]

    28. Talk Books To Me on said:

      I have to be honest here…this one took me a LONG time to get into. For a Play by Play book, the sex was a long time in coming (Irksome moment #1)! Normally this series gives the goods up front and then the relationship and story move from there. This one was quite different as Haven and Trevor knew each other back in the day and are now re-learning who the other is, what they are about and most importantly, sharing their common feelings about the death of Haven’s dad. I have read other revie [...]

      cocktailsandbooks/I was given an advance copy of this book to write a review for Cocktails and Books. STRADDLING THE LINE is a delightful, steamy read that captivated me from the first page. Haven Briscoe is a sports journalist and is assigned to interview Trevor Shay, an athlete who plays both professional baseball and football. There aren’t too many athletes who can play two sports successfully, but Trevor thrives on the pressure and excitement. In college Haven tutored Trevor and had a huge [...]

      The Play-By-Play series by Jaci Burton is a favorite read of mine no matter which book. This book is number eight in the series and was just as exciting and entertaining as the previous books. I’ve read them all and have not been disappointed with each new addition. This series picks up not long after book 7. Trevor Shay’s mentor from college has recently passed away and the family is struggling with their grief. Trevor feels as though he has lost a father figure and is anxious to help out t [...]
