Game On by Kelly Jamieson

Game On by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!

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

“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips

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.

Review by Susan:

This is the final book in the series and what an ending it is, I loved getting to catch up with characters from the previous books and seeing where they are now and a little glimpse of where they will be in the future.

This is Olivia and Cam’s story, it started out as a bet for him that he couldn’t date a woman for 2 month and not fall in love and some much needed publicity for Olivia’s children’s foundation. Where is the harm in having a few dates with a hunky hockey player? But what happens when emotions become involved? Can Cam keep his heart in check and not fall for the sweet, focused Olivia?

Although I’m sad this series is over I’m over the moon we will be getting a new series. I’ve loved every minute reading this series and will miss theses characters immensely.  4 Stars

Review by Susan:

This is the fifth and final book in the series, I do feel it could be read as a standalone, the couples from the previous books do feature but you don’t need to know their stories to enjoy this book. This is Justin or LT story, and I have to say it’s my favourite of the series. LT watches his friends find their happy ever after a and feels that not in the cards for him, after much persuasion from his sister he signs up for a pen friend while he’s deployed. Because is a widower and mother to an adorable daughter, she signs up to be a pen friend not expecting to find love, her husband was a marine, killed while on deployment. Can she open her heart again to another man in the military? Or will she walk away before giving him a chance as she’s scared of loosing him? You will have to read to find out!

I loved this book, it is a short read but I was hooked from the beginning and spat out at the end. I loved the letters and emails between LT and Becca, we get to see their relationship blossom and bloom over the course of the book. I loved how Becca was accepted by the other men’s women, how they took her under their wing and helped her to live again. I am sad to see the end of this series but it ended perfectly. 5 Stars

 

BLURB:

Justin
I originally joined the Navy as an escape, to become more than a country farm boy. Being a Navy SEAL turned me into a man, but one without a life outside the military. I thought that was all I needed. Until everyone around began to find their Happily Ever Afters’. I realized my life was missing love, something I’ve been longing for. All it took was one simple letter from home to remind me that everything I ever needed was right there waiting for me.

Becca
Losing the love of your life before he was able to meet his child was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through. I tried to move on with my life, and find a new sense of normalcy with my daughter and myself. One simple holiday act of kindness has set my carefully choreographed life into a tailspin. I could never have guessed writing a simple letter to a deployed sailor would bring us to a place we can finally call ‘Home’ again.

Can these two trust in the things they can not see to find true happiness?

**While Faith can be read as a standalone, it is best enjoyed after reading Honor, Love, Fate, and Power.**

Bad boy quarterback Tyler Harris plays ball for a living and breaks hearts for a hobby.

With two championships in as many years, Tyler is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he’s at the top of his game. Women love him. Men want to be him. Only Tyler’s not feeling the love. In fact, he’s not feeling anything at all. Licking his wounds after a scandal and a breakup with his long-time girlfriend, he retreats to a run-down mansion on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, Tyler is blindsided by the sassy redhead next door. He knows that he’s met his match and possibly his soulmate. There’s one problem. She despises him.

Lavender Mead has a good reason to dislike jocks, namely an absentee father who deserted the family to coach college football. Maybe that explains her penchant for bad boys — especially those who play ball. Her new neighbor seems just that type. Yet Tyler’s not the shallow superstar she expected, and she’s inexplicably drawn to football’s bad boy. The two are so hot together, they’re combustible.

As the clock ticks down, can they commit to each other forever? Or will they both fall short of the goal at the last minute?

Review by Susan:

Tyler has the world at his feet, money, fame and women but he’s just not feeling it. After a scandal and breaking up with his long term girlfriend, Tyler retreats to a remote island to lick his wounds and contemplate what to do next. Lavender should hate jocks, Tyler is everything she hates but she can’t keep away from him. Can Tyler break down lavenders barriers and show her not all jocks are the same? Can lavender give Tyler and love a chance? You will have to read to find out!

This was a fun and entertaining read, I loved the bickering and banter between Tyler and Lavender, the chemistry between the characters was off the charts. I loved that we get to see them both mature over the course of the book and see their barriers fall bit by bit. I read this book in one sitting, I was hooked from the start,  another wonderful read from this fabulous author.  4 Stars

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson is available now!
“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—USA Today bestselling author Jami Davenport

A 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. . . .

Review by Susan:

This is the seventh book in the series but it could be read as a standalone, this is Nick and Jodie’s story. Nick doesn’t make a great first impression when he meets Jodie, he’s standoffish, grumpy and miserable but life has been hard for him. Nick finds Jodie’s incessant chat aggravating but circumstance keeps putting her in Nicks path and what at first he found annoying, is now soothing to him, throw in a cute 2yr old and his once black heart is now beating again. Jodie is a single mother by choice, business owner, not used to relying on anyone but once she crosses paths with a hot hockey player she knows her life will never be the same.

There’s some ups and downs, strong emotions, romance and playoff beards that will keep you turning the pages. We get to catch up with previous couples and get a hint at who the next book will be about. This was another great read from this author, I totally devoured this book in one sitting, I loved both Nick and Jodie, it was great watching their relationship blossom and bloom and seeing Nick open his heart. Can’t wait to read the next book in this series.  5 Stars!

Review by Susan:

This was my first read by this author and what an introduction it was! It is also the first of a new series and boy what a start it is! This book has everything you want from an MC read, brotherhood, loyalty, Backstabbing, twists and turns that you don’t see coming and also can you say hot?! Boy was it hot, it nearly melted my kindle, most of the scenes are NSFW so beware before you dive into it.

The story follows Lynch, who is the new president of the club after the death of his father, Zoe aka Candi, is new to MC life she just wants to knock something off her bucket list and boy what a way she does it!

Lynch certainly rocks her world, as the story unfolds, Lynch vows to stay away from Zoe but she’s under his skin and messing with his head, what’s a rough, tough, alpha male, mc pres to do?? You will have to read to find out!

This was a thrilling read from beginning to end, I was hooked and kept on the edge of my seat till the end. It was a great introduction to the Ravens Ruin MC, I can’t wait to read more about them.  5 Stars

A Change of Pace by Freya Barker

Title: A Change of Pace
Series: Northern Lights Collection
Stand alone
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 16, 2018



Once a man who lived by the letter of the law.
 
Newt Tobias will do anything for his little girl. Even take early retirement, sell his city home, and move to cottage country, hoping that the simpler life will provide a better balance for his troubled teenage daughter. 
 
Yet, not long after they’ve settled, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a stubborn, fiery tempered woman with pretty brown eyes.
 
Once a recluse preferring to live alone. 
 
Working with troubled adolescents, Frederique Marchand doesn’t suffer fools and won’t put up with bullies. Especially handsome strangers like Newt who think they can run roughshod over her. She loves her work, but on her own time she much prefers the company of her menagerie of animals.
 

But with the welfare of a teenager at stake, she must put aside rocky first impressions and work with a man who needs her as much as she’ll come to need him.

Review by Victoria:

This is one of those books I wish I had more than 5 stars to give. I had to talk myself into putting it down so that I didn’t finish it too quick!

Newt is your classic macho man. Retired from the Ottawa Police Force, he’s learning to juggle raising his daughter after her mother passed from cancer. Millie and Newt pack their lives up for a change of pace from big city to the all northern community around Parry Sound.
With their big move, Newt meets Freddy. Frederique, or Freddy as everyone knows her, has had her fair share of hard times in life but now helps the youth with Boulder the support dog by her side and a farm full of animals. She hasn’t had interest in creating a love life in years, even if the new comer is something delicious.
Newt and Freddy come together on a slow burning journey to finding out just how perfect they are for each other. Their love and strength together can help not only themselves but all those around them. I love this series for its honest view of how life in the small communities can be. Newt and Freddy develop not only their relationship but that of a community coming together when one of their own needs it. This is not only a story of a love growing but of how that love can grow an entire family around them.
This is a story you won’t want to miss, let Freddy and Newt show you just how far love can take you. 5 stars!
Review by Christine:
I’ve fallen in love again… Freya Barker has created another beautifully crafted tale of love and healing wrapped in the stunning setting of Cottage Country in Ontario, Canada.

If you enjoy a summer romance with strong characters and a bit of crime drama with a whole lot of heart this is the book for you. Actually this entire series of standalone non-connected stories are for you. This book deals with hard topics and sensitive issues with an impeccable level of skill that I find in each of the authors books.

A Change Of Pace is a must read of 2017 ~ 5 “Puppy Love” Stars!

“How was school?” 

“Fine.” It’s the same answer Millie gave me yesterday and it doesn’t tell me anything. I read somewhere once that when a woman says ‘fine,’ it means she’s everything but. 

“Anything exciting?” I try again, which earns me an eye-roll, and I turn my eyes back to the road.

“Actually,” she suddenly says, surprising me. “I met a dog today.”

“At school?” I’m confused; I didn’t know they let dogs in the school.

“Yeah. Dad, can we get a dog?”

“Wait. Is that even allowed? Bringing a dog into school?”

“I guess so. He’s some kind of service dog. But, Dad, can we have a dog?”

“What—like a Seeing Eye dog?”

“No, he belonged to a therapist visiting the school. So can we?”

“You saw a therapist?”

“It was just some kind of welcome thing they do with new kids.”

“That’s pretty neat.”

“Whatever, it wasn’t a big deal. Can we pick up a donut at Tim Hortons?” she asks, changing tracks at lightning speed. We’re coming up to Nobel and Timmies is just down the road. “I just really liked the dog. So?”

“Sure, we can.” 

The screaming that follows almost has me running the damn Jeep off the road.

“Yes! Thanks so much, Dad,” she says with more enthusiasm than I’ve heard her express in the past four years. “Can we get one this weekend?” 

Now I’m confused. Does she not want me to stop now?

“You want your donut this weekend?” 

“Donut I want now.” She turns to me with big wide innocent eyes. “But we can shop for the dog this weekend?”

Wait. What?
 
 
 
 
 

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.

Mick Laughlin can handle anything – except a broken heart. He never understood why the girl he loved in college suddenly turned her back on him and he’s avoided romance ever since. Now a top young architect at his family’s firm, he’s been sent all over the globe to work on elite projects.

Four years ago, Melina Lakkas fell in love with her younger brother’s best friend. When his family made it clear they would never accept her, she walked away. It was a no-win situation, which would have been made worse had they discovered her secret.

When Mick takes on the design and execution of an exclusive resort in Santorini, he plans to stay as far away from Athens—and Lena—as possible. Then a fire at the job site leaves him with no choice but to call on his best friend’s sister for help. As secrets from the past unravel, can Mick forgive her long enough to forgive himself?

Paige Carter’s fling with the dark-haired, green-eyed Greek was short, but it blew her mind. Her only regret was not finding out whether she’d ever see him again before he returned to Greece.

Apollo Lakkas earned his degree and was thrilled to return to Greece to begin work with his family’s shipping business. His only regret is the way he left the sweet blonde he met in Vegas—who may or may not be his wife.

When an unexpected proposal throws Paige into a panic, she packs a bag for Athens and does the one thing she knows she must do before she can face any kind of future… reconcile her past.

The moment their eyes meet once again, Paige and Apollo feel the same spark that ignited them down the aisle. Will they be able to plan a future together or is their love destined to be nothing but a bittersweet memory?

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
