Surprises
Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

Hayden and her best friend check out a new place and learn about tequila and men.  Many surprises for the reader in this series opener.  Interesting characters and fun times are had inside.

 

Beck is a former SEAL, who opens a restaurant/bar with his best friends.  Hayden turns his life upside down, and he finds that was the best part of all.  If they can agree it is love, the future looks bright.

 

I really enjoyed this book.  There was a lot to learn.  I laughed, cried, and basically felt every page.  I cannot wait to check out the next book in this Last Shot series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

Former Navy SEAL Beck Whitcomb left a world of privilege to prove he could make his own way. Money, mansions, expensive cars—none of it could heal the loss of his older brother, or buy his parents’ love. Now, after using his trust fund to open the Conquistadors tequila bar with his brothers-in-arms, Beck has it all: good friends, fine liquor, and hot hookups. When it comes to women, commitment’s not his thing—until he gets a taste of the pretty professor who walks into his bar . . . and winds up in his bed.

Hayden Miles knows all too well that emotional decisions can lead to heartbreak, and nothing screams “bad decision” like a playboy bartender with inked biceps and a wicked smile. Still, their chemistry is off-the-charts explosive—and Hayden knows her chemistry. For once, this good girl longs to let loose. But is she willing to risk the pain to quench her thirst? With the promise of more on the table, Hayden’s eager to believe . . . before she misses her shot.

Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson
Body Shot (Last Shot, #1)Body Shot by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book wasn't only enjoyable it was informative. I have to say that I learned a LOT about Tequila and you can see that Kelly Jamieson really did her due diligence with researching the subject. I have been a fan of Kelly Jamieson's for a while now and when I saw that she had a new series out I had to grab it...and I am so happy that I did.

I Loved Beck! He is a former Navy SEAL and now he co-owns a Tequila Bar with two of his friends, he is also the bartender at Conquistadors, but that's not all....(yep not telling, it's a big spoiler if I do). Anyway, Marco decided that they should have a Tequila tasting one night at Conquistadors and that is where Beck meets Hayden.

Hayden is a workaholic, but she is a scientist on the hunt for something big, all of her time is spent in the lab or teaching or helping out her Aunt & Uncle (which she does quite a bit). I really enjoy when the good girl that finds the right guy to cut loose with and that is exactly what we have here. The chemistry between Beck and Hayden was great. I couldn't get enough of these two and I really hope that we see them in the next book which will be Marco's story.

This looks like so much fun and I know that Beck and Hayden had a great time on the waterBody Shot (Last Shot, #1) by Kelly Jamieson

Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

This is a steamy read. Hayden is a nerd who is focused on work and the plan for her life. Her friend Cassie drags her out for a night of fun where Hayden meets Beck. Now Beck is full of fun and adventure, covering up his painful memories as a SEAL and his family. The two heat up whenever they are together, but they also complement each other. Together, they are better people. I really enjoyed this story and hope to see more of the owners of the Conquistadors. I recommend this book.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Review: Body Shot
Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

Body Shot(Last Shot #1) by Kelly Jamieson has the makings of a great romance novel, and for all purposes it appears to be, but there’s something missing here that left me disappointed. The hero Beck is awesome and yummy, and really made Body Shot shine, but I found the heroine Hayden lacking. The chemistry between these two at times seemed forced, plus the writing had some editing issues. There were more passive words or actions than active, and I noticed the use of the same word on the same page multiple times. I think another round of editing could have helped make this read much crisper and more enjoyable, including toning down Hayden’s seemingly Mary Sue goody-goody personality. Because Beck was more of an original with his characteristics and personality, Hayden disappeared into the background. At certain points I wondered what Beck liked about Hayden or was attracted to because she was more one-dimensional.

Beck is a former SEAL who owns a bar right near that specializes in tequila. Beck also comes from money. He’s not friendly with his parents because they want him to be this buttoned up executive for the family’s business. But because of his grandparents, Beck is very rich from the money they left him. So to help his two buddies with their dreams, Beck invests his fortune in the bar, which he loves running. Beck is also an adrenaline junkie who sky dives and jumps from planes. One night the bar has a tequila tasting, and that’s where he meets Hayden. At first Hayden wasn’t planning on going to the bar, but her good friend convinces her. Hayden is stressed and running on fumes, trying to keep her company afloat and receive funding, which would be millions of dollars. Hayden is a very intelligent but a book smart woman who barely goes out or has fun. Her life is about to change when she meets Beck.

 

Hayden does something so naughty and unlike her. Within a few hours of meeting Beck, she has hot sex with him in his office. They rock both their worlds. From them on Beck wants to date Hayden, but Hayden is just too busy. Beck tries to get Hayden to let down her hair, so to speak.

 

Body Shot is basically Hayden and Beck going on dates, eating, going to the beach and having a lot of steamy and hot sex. There isn’t a lot of angst or drama here, other than Beck’s issues with his family, and where he comes from. Hayden is worried about having too much fun with Beck, which may make her work suffer. These two are opposites in the way they think and live their lives, so will they get their HEA?

 

Body Shot is an okay romance, and Kelly can sure write great love scenes. Beck may seems like an alpha hero because of his former career as a SEAL, including his take charge personality, but when it comes to Hayden, he’s a gentleman (behind closed doors he’s very different). Hayden is a typical type of heroine, but she comes across as wishy-washy at times that grew tedious. Also I just couldn’t see what attracted Beck to her. She’s nice, hardworking and dedicated to her career and friends, but she didn’t wow me like I wanted her to. Beck is the reason to read Body Shot, while Hayden just fades away.

 

Body Shot should appeal to fans who like some spicy sensuality and sizzle in their contemporary romance. If you can put aside Hayden’s underwhelming personality and some editing issues regarding the passive verbs and actions, then you’ll probably enjoy Body Shot.
