Game On - Kelly Jamieson

This was my first time reading a book by Kelly Jamieson and I must say I loved it! I'm a sucker for hockey romances and saw the blurb on this one and thought it might be fun and I was right.

Cam Brickley is a hockey player. He is known as a playboy and loves to make bets with his friends about anything. When his fellow hockey friends bet him that he couldn't date the same person for 2 months in a row and not fall in love with her, he easily takes that bet. The hot blonde sitting at the bar is just the person that his friends pick.

Olivia Lockwood, aka hot blonde, comes from a family of lots of money. Too bad she wants to make it on her own and not work for the family business. Olivia started a charity that helps underprivileged children keep active because of her problems in her youth. When Cam Brickley hits on her at a bar instead of blowing him off she plays along. He wouldn't be interested in her because of her money and family connections and he may be just the perfect choice to be a spokesperson for her charity.

What these two didn't realize is that they were both using each other to get something they each wanted. Funny how their original plans got blown out of the water because both of them ended up wanting more from their arrangement than they first intended. I just adored these two. Olivia doesn't want to be the rich princess and wants to do something good in her life. Cam never wanted a real relationship because of things from his past but Olivia quickly changes those thoughts. Together these two were fun, flirty and down right sexy. I loved every part of this story and would highly recommend it.

Release Blitz - Game On

Game On by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!
 
 
 
When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . . “Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
 
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle. Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections.
 
When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people. Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.
 
 
 
 
 

Game On (Aces Hockey, #8)Game On by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #8, in the Aces Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Cam bets his teammates he can get a date with the hot girl. She seems to not be interested in him, but there is something that just gives him hope. Then when they try to go on a date, the mishaps begin.

Olivia has no idea how to approach Cam about helping her out on a professional level. They start trying to date and it seems to be almost a wedge between them. Then she gets to know him. It changes everything.

This series is just so good! I was laughing my way through this book. The characters are such a joy to read. There is heat, humor and heart. Great combination.

Game On (Aces Hockey, #8) by Kelly Jamieson
Game On - Kelly Jamieson

Kelly Jamieson leads the league with GAME ON, the last book in the Aces Hockey series. Cam Brickley’s teammates bet him that he cannot date the same woman for two months and not fall in love with her. Olivia Lockwood needs a spokesman for her charity. They both want something from the other, and neither one of them is interested in an actual relationship.

 

As always, Kelly Jamieson does an amazing job with her character development. Initially, Cam and Olivia used each other; Cam to win a bet and Olivia for PR for her charity. As they get to know each other, feelings develop. I like Olivia. She is an heiress and has been used by people in the past for her connections. Her self-esteem is not the best because she has been verbally beaten down by her family. She is an honorable woman with admirable goals. Cam is a good guy. He’s great with the kids at Olivia’s charity. I like how he defends Olivia.

 

The plot was skillfully executed and interesting. Being a Chicago, I appreciated that this series takes place there. I love all the history that was shared in this story. GAME ON is a hard book to put down and may cause a book hangover. The ending to GAME ON was perfect for not only the book but the series. I am sad this series is over, but I am thrilled that Kelly Jamieson is coming out with a new hockey series (Wynn Hockey) that Aces players will be making an appearance in. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2019-01-13 04:11
A Country Christmas (Review of The Christmas Angle)
A Country Christmas - Josi S. Kilpack,Jennifer Moore-Mallinos,Carla Kelly

My reviews are honest & they contain spoilers. For more, follow me:


It’s been a while since I read a Carla Kelly book so gathered it’s time to read something new. I bought her latest back in May 2018, which is book 1 of the new St. Brendan series. Then I found out that the H and h of the story were introduced in a novella in the anthology A Country Christmas. This review and rating (4.5 stars) is solely based on Carla Kelly’s “The Christmas Angle”.

Sailing Master Able Six maybe only 26 years old but he’d already climbed the ladder of success when it comes to HRM Navy. At least as far as success is concerned for a total nobody, a bastard (and an orphan) like him. No one ever heard a person becoming a sailing master at the age of 22 (I don’t know a whole lot about this bit of HRM Navy so I’m solely relying on the author’s knowledge) but Able had become what no one has been before. Hell, he’s someone so unique that no one probably had seen anyone like him in the past decades, maybe more, and likely won’t see another for a long time to come. Able Six, what you can describe in the simplest terms possible, is a genius. A prodigy if you’d like that word too. Someone with photographic memory. He’d read/see/hear, basically experience anything, and he’d remember every single crisp detail. His memory is like sponge; it takes everything and can reproduce when the need arrives. Detail by detail.
