Hotter
Hot Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

This is book #2, in the Last Shot series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading in order.

 

Marco & Carrie met when she brought her best friend to his bar for a tasting.  Now, their best friends are getting married.  They see one another all the time, but he has no idea why Carrie seems like she hates him.

 

Carrie does not want to be attracted to the hotter Marco.  He just sets her on fire with a look.  The more she gets to know him better, the more she is attracted to him.

 

The story confused me at first.  The characters are so hot together.  It makes for a great story.  The more funny things happen, the greater this story is.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

****This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

Dancing in the Rain by Kelly Jamieson
Dancing in the Rain - Kelly Jamieson

Kelly Jamieson’s DANCING IN THE RAIN is an incredible heartfelt read.  NHL star, Drew Sellers, is forced to retire due to a knee injury.  He discovers he has a twelve-year-old daughter, a result of a one-night-stand in college. Then he reluctantly finds himself attracted to his daughter’s aunt, Payton Watt.   This contemporary romance takes place in Chicago and New York.  

 

I adored DANCING IN THE RAIN.  The story was genuine and profound.  I love how everyone grew and seems to learn from each other. 

 

My heart went out to Sara; she was a good mother to Chloe and sister to Payton.  She is a strong heroine with wonderful values. 

 

Chloe is an amazing girl.  I love that she fights for what she believes in.  My heart broke for her loss.  I was glad Drew came into her life. 

 

Peyton is a wonderful sister and aunt.  She is a determined business woman who ends up reevaluating her priorities.  She is smart and determined. 

 

Drew is a great guy.  He has a difficult time with having to retire early and having gone through a divorce.  He understandably goes through an identity crisis.  Sara, Chloe, and Payton seem to come into his life at the right time.  He grows tremendously throughout this story.

 

Drew and Payton have amazing chemistry.  It is understandable why they are reluctant to get together.  They are an amazing couple.

 

Kelly Jamieson did an astounding job with DANCING IN THE RAIN.  It had me laughing and crying.  I was invested in the characters.  I enjoyed the plot.  The story dealt with hard issues and had worthy life lessons. The ending was perfect.  I loved this story.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

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 › Kelly Jamieson 99 cents
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.

Back Check (Aces Hockey #4) by Kelly Jamieson
Back Check: An Aces Hockey Novel - Kelly Jamieson

Kelly Jamieson is on a winning streak with BACK CHECK, the fourth book in the Aces Hockey series. Tanner Bennet feels like he is cursed when it comes to wedding.  When his team captain asks him to stand up in his wedding, he could hardly say no.  He never expected to be reunited with the woman who broke his heart, the wedding planner, Katelyn Medford.  This contemporary sports romance takes place in Chicago. 

 

I loved this story.  First of all, I appreciated that it took place during Marc Dupuis’ and Lovey Armstrong‘s (from book one, MAJOR MISCONDUCT) wedding planning. I love the previous characters in the series, and that was a great way to include them into the story.  It was also, a clever way for Tanner and Katelyn to be reunited.

 

I enjoyed Tanner’s character.  Being the child of parents who have gone through several divorces he understandably never felt like he had a normal family.  His childhood leaves him with some security issues.  He doesn’t really feel wanted.   Katelyn is the only person he ever confided in.  While all of this is going on, Tanner has the added stress of contract negotiations and trade rumors.  I love that he is a big brother and how he interacts with Jovon.  I love the video he makes for Katelyn, especially since he did it in front of his teammates.

 

Katelyn is a likeable character.  She has lived in Chicago the past few years and recently started her own event planning business.  Being professional is very important to her.  I like that she hits it off so well with Lovey and Amber.  She fits in great with their friends.  She is a noble person with good values.

 

Tanner and Katelyn dated while in college at Michigan State;  Katelyn broke Tanner’s heart when she didn’t follow him when he played with the New York Islanders.  We discover her very good reason for sacrificing their relationship.  I love that these two got a second chance.  They are an astounding couple with fantastic chemistry.

 

Once again, Kelly Jamieson created an amazing story that was heartfelt and realistic.  The characters had obstacles to overcome and issues to face.  Being a Chicagoan, I love that it takes place here.  Kelly Jamieson does a great job depicting the city.  I love this series and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good sports romance.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
