“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.
Playing Hurt by Kelly Jamieson
Chase is a hockey star. Jordyn is a rock star. When Jordyn, a hockey fan, friends Chase on twitter, Chase is someone star struck because he is a fan of her music.
They start up some very public twitter banter which leads to a bet for a date on a hockey game. Of course, they end up on this very public date and the chemistry is perfect… there is lots of witty banter and great potential. Unfortunately, both Chase and Jordyn have issues that cause strife in them getting together.
Playing Hurt was a spicy, hockey-based romance, with mostly sweet and witty banter. I liked it but it lacked the riveting connecting that I’ve come to expect from Jamieson. It was sweet and heartfelt. This is just one of those couples you just knew where meant for each other, if they could just get past their issues...mostly his issues... Playing Hurt was one of those HEA you can't wait for it to really happen but its played till the end.
I received this ARC copy of Playing Hurt from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept. This is my honest and voluntary review. Playing Hurt is set for publication July 17, 2018.
