Welcome to Fort Lauderdale—where the days are hot and the Knights are hotter.

ADD to your Goodreads TBR:



I’ve always said I would settle down when the time—and the woman—was right. So having a friends-with-benefits relationship fits right into my plans. Until it doesn’t. The line between friendship and wanting more with the gorgeous doctor is blurring with each passing day. The more I get to know her, the harder it gets to stay away. I need to show Chloe there’s more to us than just chemistry… but first I have to admit it to myself.


I thought I had my life all mapped out. College, medical school, and then a demanding career as a successful doctor. Now I’m having doubts about all of it, and the last thing I need is a professional athlete with abs for days to add to my distraction and derail my plans. Falling for a big shot hockey player like Jude would be a mistake. But everything is so good between us— there’s no way I can just walk away.

Big Shot by Kat Mizera
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kat Mizera makes me happy. I haven’t read every word she has ever published but I’d take a bet that they would all make me happy! Her stories are realistic, and her characters are relatable and easy to root for. The mechanics of a book are very important, but so is how the story makes the reader feel. If an author can make me fell joy and happiness while I’m in their world, that is auto #win for me.

Chloe & Jude made me happy. They made it easy for me root for them and I just wanted to jump into the book and become their friend. Their relationship grew organically, and it was a joy to read their development from sexual chemistry to so much more!

This is a story you will fell. Things don’t just get told to you, they’re felt, and that makes for the most exceptional romance journeys, in my opinion! Chloe and Jude both had their own busy lifestyles to navigate as they navigated their growing feelings and it made me super happy to read that their path didn’t just miraculously become #happysigh; they struggled but they persevered and I just love their story! Well done!

Meet The Author

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.

Kat’s been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
