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!

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 (Aces Hockey, #7) by Kelly Jamieson
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.

Two people try to keep emotion out of their relationship
No Obligation Required - Kelly Jamieson

I enjoyed this story a lot. Having two people tell this story was interesting. Scarlet Chase and Aiden Snow helped the characters come to life. This was Bailey and Mason's story, second in the series. Two people who do not feel they deserve or have time for a relationship find they actually cannot control things that much. Despite his reservations, Mason was a wonderful person but once in a while became someone I did not like. He seemed real as he fought his emotions, someone to relate to. I loved Bailey's determination and duty to family. Between the two of them, their pasts definitely made me cry as things came to light. I highly recommend this story.

I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

With Strings Attached (Book 1)
 
Two’s company…three’s a crowd… Corey Fenwick keeps her bitter past as hidden as the sweet centers inside the handmade chocolates she sells to a growing list of upscale customers. She’s learned that the only person she can rely on is herself, so her best-friends-with-benefits relationship with Matt is perfect—no strings attached. Matt Ferber watched his last girlfriend ride off on the back of a Harley with a rock musician after calling him boring.
 
He’s resigned to being “just friends” with women, so his arrangement with Corey suits him fine too. Until his old friend Dylan Schell rolls into town to hang out while recovering from a surfing injury. The sexy bad boy surfer makes Corey’s mouth water, and she figures a harmless fling won’t hurt, especially when Dylan suggests she come between him and Matt—in bed. It’s a win-win-win situation…until somehow there are strings attached. And too late they realize they’re getting all tangled up.
 
 
 
 
 
With Strings Attached (San Amaro Singles, #1)With Strings Attached by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Corey has a friends with benefits arrangement with her buddy, Matt. She just does not want him to help her so much that she gets dependent. Why is she okay to have him help her with orgasms and not other things?

Matt and his buddy Dylan are giving Corey a taste of the forbidden. As they explore each other maybe all of them can learn what true intimacy is. Matt is so devoted to all those he cares about. Dylan has a secret that may rock their world.

These characters were up to some pretty hot stuff. I thought the heat was dialing up and up while I was reading. Is it hot in here? Anyway, true to form, this author had me hoping for a cool cloth while I enjoyed the escapades of these three. Start of a great series, cannot wait to read more.

How to Love (Book 2)
 
The greatest mistakes we make are the risks we don’t take. Ever since Jules’s new neighbor moved in, she’s been undressing him in her mind. Mike is the fresh inspiration she needs to make her erotic photography studio a success, if she can convince him and his equally buff roommate, Carlos, to strip for her lens. And maybe indulge in a little off-camera fun as well. Jules doesn’t do relationships, but she loves men and sex—and in her experience, most men are okay with that.
 
Judging from the raw emotions in the images in Jules’s gallery, Mike senses there’s a lot going on beneath her flirtatious, slightly cynical exterior. He and Carlos are happy in their committed relationship, but they’ve always felt there’s a piece missing. They want a woman. Jules could be that woman. Jules thinks sex is as intimate and committed as she can get. A threesome with two men already committed to each other is perfect for her—emotionally risk free. But when she learns Mike and Carlos want more than sex, can she open herself to real intimacy and love, not just with one man…but with two?
 
 
Slammed (Book 3)
 
Love’s a wave. And they’re about to get slammed. Brooke Lowry has a mission: fly to Tahiti, pluck PR nightmare Dylan Schell out of whatever party he’s in, bring him home and clean up his image. It was her idea for Jackson Cole clothing company to sponsor the pro surfer. But the chances of saving this deal—and her career—look pretty slim when she finds the sexy party boy “shooting the curl” with two beach bunnies. Dylan is finally getting back on track in his surfing career after a near-death accident.
 
The next big event would put him over the top…if it wasn’t being held in San Amaro, where he’ll have to watch his best friends Matt and Corey tie the knot and move on without him. What would help? A girlfriend so his friends don’t feel sorry for him. Brooke will do anything to get Dylan back to San Amaro — even be his date for a wedding. But suddenly Dylan finds himself facing a lot of things—his hometown, his past, his fears…and something he didn’t see coming…love.
