He’s playing hurt. She’s laying low. And they’re both flirting with disaster.
“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—Jami Davenport
Chase: The last thing I’d ever want to do is let my team down. After overcoming my bad-boy reputation, I was dominating on the ice. But things aren’t going so well this season, and even my parents think I’m partying again. Now I’m really worried about my career. The only bright spot in my life is the Twitter flirtation I’ve struck up with pop princess Jordyn Banks. Turns out she’s a huge hockey fan—and she’s willing to wager a date on her favorite team. . . .
Jordyn: Even though I’m an L.A. fan now, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Aces, since I grew up in Chicago. Then I lose a bet to Chase Hartman, and suddenly I’m up close and personal with a pro athlete who’s anything but soft. Not only is Chase the hottest guy I’ve ever met, he’s secretly super sweet. As if I had time for a relationship . . . yeah, right. But when I suddenly have nothing but time on my hands, he’s the only one who understands. Now, with both of our careers at stake, Chase is tempting me to put my heart on the line too.

Jamieson's skimpy sixth Aces Hockey contemporary (after Slap Shot) focuses on veteran player Chase Hartman, who's rehabbing both his party-boy image and a wrist injury that is badly affecting his play. During his downtime, he strikes up a Twitter flirtation with pop star Jordyn Banks, betting a date on the outcome of a rival's game. Despite the challenges of lining up their schedules between Chicago and Los Angeles, Chase and Jordyn manage to develop a relationship out of the spotlight. When they both face career-ending surgeries, their differing coping strategies test their relationship to its breaking point. Secondary characters are little more than cameos, with previous Aces characters serving as shorthand for hockey content and celebrity name-dropping doing the same for Hollywood glamour. New readers may be disappointed by the lack of setting development beyond Chase and Jordyn, but the tight focus on the couple allows for emotional revelations that somewhat make up for the lack of depth elsewhere.
