Publisher Description

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.

Great Hockey Romance

This is the sixth book in the Aces Hockey series and it is a light, sweet, sexy story with characters that are realistic and entertaining. Chase is a hockey player with the Chicago Aces and he has a crush on Jordyn, a R&B singer. Chase can’t believe his good fortune, when he finally gets to meet Jordyn after playfully tweeting her. He is happy to discover that Jordyn is down to earth and fun and they instantly connect. However, the downside is that they are both busy with their careers and they live on opposite sides of the county.

I liked both Chase and Jordyn and I thought they make a great couple. There is a lot of pressure that is put on them to always perform at their best. Sometimes they just want to sit back, relax and enjoy life and they can do that with each other. They are good together and help each other become better people. They understand and support one another through some tough times and I love all the sparks they create when they are together. This is another great hockey romance from Kelly Jamieson.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Woulda Coulda Shoulda

This is such a great series, however this book wasn't up there with the others. This is Chase and Jordyn's story. Chase, once a bit of a player now settled into his role with the Ace's and has a little girl crush thing going with pop star Jordyn. One day he tweets to her and she tweets back. Jordyn is from Chicago and is a hockey fan. Now living in California she roots for her home team, and the two banter back and forth on twitter until Chase purposes a wager on a game, a date- she agrees and she loses. They have a date, keeping a low profile as they're two public figures. Jordyn's been having a little scratchy throat off and on meanwhile Chase isn't performing on the ice. Turns out he's got a little problem with his wrist from an injury last season. Nothing to worry about he says. The relationship between the two develop and things are done and said and said and done. The puck hits the ice when Chase ignores his injury and that creates a problem between the two of them. Chase creates the problem.
This story for me lacked the real life character depth that the others had and it felt like I was sitting on a porch glider. Back and forth and not going anywhere. The rest of the series is fantastic, this one just fell short for me.
