GAME ON – A Kelly Jamieson Review

Something about a bet when it comes to romance that just spells bad news. But for once…this romance spells H-E-A. Cam, pro hockey player extraordinaire, is a sucker for any bet because he’s confident he can win them all. When a night out with them team lands him a bet with one hot woman, he’s not sure he can handle the stakes. Olivia is smart as a whip and funny as hell. The more dates he takes her on the less likely he thinks he can win the bet of not falling in love with her before their time is up. So what does out our brave and bold hockey player do? He tells the heroine about the bet!

Olivia is tired of mean only dating her to get in her fathers good graces; not to mention her families doubts about her charity work. Focused on finding happiness for herself, a night out with professional hockey play Cam could lead to some great opportunities: in her charity and her bed. Olivia is convinced she can keep their “dating” as a business contract, but she didn’t plan on Cam being filled with charm and caring. Now she has to decide on fighting for her charity or protecting her heart. When she learns their dates have only been part of a bet, she decides to shield her heart and help him win against his friends; at the cost of her happy ever after.

I loved Cam and Olivia’s relationship from the get go. These two had quips back and forth like they’d been friends for years. Not to mention Cam is such a swoony hero; he’ll sweep any reader off their feet. Watching his realization of his feelings for Olivia was different from typical heroes of romance. He had a fear of failure but not quite a failure of love; just a fear of not being able to accomplish something so great. Olivia’s tender heart and honesty help him figure that out along the way. Its a sweet feel good romance about trusting your own heart to find out what makes you happy!


When the stakes are this high, it’s game on…

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.

BIG STICK – A Kelly Jamieson Review

There’s something about hockey players that adds another level of swoon to their hero status. But Nick takes the cake as he is the grumpiest hero I’ve ever read…AND I LOVE HIM FOR IT! Nick is anti-social, except for his small group of friends, brash but knows when to stay quiet, and prefers the company of his home improvement tools to others, including women. But after a few years of his solitude and the upcoming anniversary of his brother’s death, Nick decides to spend more time with friends and to try and socialize. In walks mouthy and sassy Jodie. She talks constantly and he can’t help but stare at her perfect mouth. He’s annoyed by her….but he kind of likes it. When Jodie needs a place to stay, Nick’s friends offer up his coach house. Now Jodie comes with strings in addition to her extrovert attitude….she’s also got an adorable daughter. Nick doesn’t do well with kids, or so he thought. He needs to dedicate his time to his hockey career and not caring for two new people in his life.

Jodie took a huge leap; she’s moved to Chicago to build her sex toy business with her best friend. Out on your own with a new business is had enough but mix in the fact that Jodie is a single mom and this girl is on a POWER TRIP. She mixes both sides of herself perfectly; business mom to the max. But living in the coach house of her best friend’s boyfriend’s teammate (whew!) isn’t a cakewalk. He’s grouchy and surly, and frankly he doesn’t seem to like her. But he keeps finding reasons to come over and when he does, he stares longingly at her. He’s hot and the more time they spend together, the more Nick begins to open up to her.

As Nick reveals more about his past and his personal motivations, Jodie sees a whole new side to the grumpy hockey player who prefers his solicitude. He’s laughing and taking care of her and her daughter. Jodie could see a happily ever after happening for them/ But soon the pressure of Nick’s career mixed with his pain of his brother’s loss become to much to bear and threaten top break them apart. This may be a sports romance but is also a story about finding happiness, love, and family. Its about finding your own self worth and knowing you’re worthy of that HEA despite circumstances around you. Its slow burn meets odd friendships in this hot new romance!


Big+StickA brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.

Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .
