Reasons
Big Stick - Kelly Jamieson

This is book #7 in the Aces Hockey series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.

 

Jodie and Nick know one another through mutual friends.  When their friends think they should move in together, it becomes a series of awkward conversations.  Single-mom Jodie cannot afford to get involved with someone too quickly.  Can she be near him and not lose her heart?

 

Nick is everything she wants and is hard to stay away from.  Little does he know while he pines for the elusive Jodie, she also pines for him.  When they learn to see eye to eye, maybe this could be love after all.

 

This was a slow burn.  The characters had good interaction and the book was at a good pace.  What I liked best was the real touch of the honest way a single parent would react.  This title has lots of heat, plenty of heart and an endorsement from me.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review, by Netgalley and its publishers.

Big Stick (Aces Hockey #7) by Kelly Jamieson
Big Stick - Kelly Jamieson

 Kelly Jamieson’s BIG STICK lights the lamp.  It is the seventh book in the Aces Hockey series.  Nick Balachov is grieving over the three-year anniversary of his brother Aleks’ death.  He wants to be left alone to drown in his sorrow.  Then teammate, Max Hall, talks Nick into renting out his coach house to single mom, Jodie.  Being alone is no longer an option.  This sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

Kelly Jamieson does a wonderful job with her character development.  Jodie is Kendra Armstrong’s (book 5, SLAP SHOT) business partner.  The two own a sex toy company.  Jodie and Kendra relocated their business to Chicago from New York.  Jodie has a two-year-old daughter named, Zyana.  Jodie is a talkative and smart engineer.  Nick had a rough childhood.  He feels guilty for his younger brother’s death.  He feels undeserving of his life.  He is an interesting guy.

 

I like how Nick, Jodie, and Zyana get to know each other.  I appreciate how their relationship evolved. I love that Nick becomes protective of them.  Nick typically keeps to himself.  I love that he confides in Jodie, especially about his brother.  He starts to want things he never wanted before. 

 

I enjoyed the plot.  The hockey scenes are well written.  It was easy to visualize what was happening on the ice.  BIG STICK was a perfect addition to the Aces Hockey series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Big Stick - Kelly Jamieson

 

 

Jamieson is known for her stories of fiesty women and the men who charm them. What makes Big Stick stand out is that Jodie and Nick give readers a look at both sides of the coin. He's the man that has it all. She's a woman struggling to make a better life for herself and her child. Jodie is ever the optimist. Nick is a victim of his own celebrity. This is a pairing that shouldn't work, yet totally does. A situation of convenience takes an unexpected turn when hearts become involved. Jamieson proves she can do no wrong when it comes to romance. Her language is one that only the heart can understand and mine is well versed in perfection.
