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.

Olivia Lockwood has always felt like she didn’t really fit in with her family, a disappointment. Unlike her brother and sister, she didn’t want a job in the “family” business. She wanted to make a difference in children’s lives. So she started a nonprofit organization that encouraged children to exercise, run. As an overweight child, Liv’s life changed when she was introduced to cross country running. Although she wasn’t an Olympian, it provided her with the push she needed. After missing out on a huge grant, Olivia and her friends decide to drown their sorrows and come up with a new strategy to raise money at the local bar.
Cam and his buddies of the Chicago Aces are always making stupid bets. When his teammates bet Cam that he can’t get a date, then continue to date the same woman for two months without falling in love...Cam immediately accepts. Game On!!! There’s no way he’s giving up his single lifestyle to be with one woman. Until he lays eyes on the woman they’ve chosen...
If you’re looking for a highly entertaining, hockey novel...this is the ONE! The humorous date mishaps remind me of my days on Match.com. The stupid locker room bets where someone always gets their feelings hurt, but you look back on and laugh. That’s only a part of what makes this novel so AWESOME! I enjoyed Cam’s choice of date night activities. I wish there was a place in Oklahoma that had nothing but board games to play. That was the perfect way for Cam and Liv to really get to know one another! Can what started out as bet turn out to be so much more? I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
A bet that could go wrong!
Olivia has had a string of bad luck with men. Her last one, who became her fiancé, cheated on her. Just wanted a relationship
with her to get a job at her Father’s company. After that, she swore off men, that is until she met Cam. At a bar one night with her best friends, Olivia is approached by a hunk of a man, who had a panty melting smile.
Cam was just given a bet by his fellow teammates. They said he couldn’t date a woman for two months without falling in love with her. To prove that they are wrong, he approaches a beautiful blonde at the bar, with legs that go on forever. Inviting Olivia and her friends to join him and his friends so they could get to know each other.
Olivia runs a nonprofit company to encourage children to be fit and exercise, and they desperately need a famous athlete to be their spoke person if they want to be successful. It turns out that Cam and Olivia have a lot in common. So it seems, it’s a match made in hockey heaven.
Their first date was a total disaster, after they both end up with food poisoning. Second date, he broke a chair in a restaurant that he was sitting on. Geez, can they have a normal date. Turns out they can both laugh about it. Cam knows he’s got to tell Olivia the truth about the bet his buddies have on him. So Olivia suggests they play along till the two months are up. What she never expected to happen was to fall in love with Cam. Can she be honest with him and share her feelings, or will he turn around and hightail it out.
Great story! So sad this is the last Aces book since I’ve enjoyed each and everyone of them!

Olivia Lockwood, beautiful, sexy and heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune but is to tired of being used for her connections and money. When Cam approaches her at the bar her first instinct is to turn him down but once she realizes who he is he just might be the spokesperson she needs for her children’s charity..
Sparks fly, laughter, compassion are just a few things going on but are they using each other for their own benefit or will being together show them that love can happens when it’s least expected ..
