    "Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." Dalai Lama Loved loved loved this book, or to be honestLOVED LOVED FREAKING LOVED THE HEROINE!One of the best books I read this year. Thanks God there are still authors, who write strong, confident, generous female characters!I can’t express how much I loved the heroine. I wish I could write beautiful sophisticated reviews like many of my friends. But I can still try, don’t I? ;-)Heroine – 5+...

    If you have read the previous book in the series then you would already know Max Hall. He's the one that broke our hearts when we learned his wife was dying of cancer. In Slap Shot, Kelly Jamieson brought him back to show us how he was dealing with that loss and helping him to come back to life from his grief.I'm not always a fan of stories that have one of the main characters finding love again after a deceased spouse. I think it's not an easy t...

    4.5 stars. I looked at a few other reviews of this book before I started writing this and I realized that I really like Kelly Jamieson and the way she writes books and this one was no exception.It is probably impossible to write a romance that involves a dead wife without receiving some criticism about how you treat the subject and not everybody will necessarily like this story for that reason alone.What I personally like about her books is that ...

Soon they are embroiled in a hot and heavy sex only relationship that involves lots of sexting. From the beginning Max declares that their set up can be nothing but sex. He’s lost his wife and didn’t think he’d survive the agony. He won’t put himself...

    I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every book in Kelly Jamieson’s Chicago Aces series, but Slap Shot has a bit of an added bonus and two of her characters from her New Adult Bayard Hockey series make cameo appearances giving readers a bit of a look at what the future of the Aces might look like. Slap Shot takes a realistic look at grief and Ms. Jamieson does a fantastic job as a young widower tries to get back to his life in all ways; trying to...

    Steamy, heartfelt, and deliciously sexy!Slap Shot, the fifth book in the Aces Hockey series, is a sporty, contemporary romance featuring Max a tough, honest, hockey player who is struggling to come to grips with not only the grief he continues to feel over the loss of his wife but the guilt associated with potentially moving on.The writing is clear and emotive. The characters are genuine, believable and charming. And the plot is an impassioned ta...

    This was a surprise. I expected a cliche sports romance when I picked up this book and what I found instead was a refreshing storyline that pulled me in from, quite literally, page one. I loved the premise, the characters were both relatable and real, and I was overjoyed to discover that this author write's fantastic male POV. I didn't even realize going in that this was the 5th installment in this sports series, so after thoroughly enjoying this...

He sat out of hockey during her cancer and for the entire season following. He was now starting to fight for a position in the team again. It was a long road to healing and he wasn’t there yet, but he wanted hockey.Kendra Armstrong was the cousin to Duncan (Icing, book three) and Lovey (Major Misconduct, book o...
