“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—Jami Davenport

He’s playing hurt. She’s laying low. And they’re both flirting with disaster.

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Playing Hurt, the sixth book of the Aces series, can be read as a standalone. It was my introduction to the series and I had no issues diving right into this world.

A sweet crush and an innocent flirtation morphs into more in Playing Hurt. A pop princess and a hockey star take their turns working out their demons while their spark grows. Jordyn is a singer, and also a hockey fan. She and a player, Chase, banter a bit online before a bet finally brings them face to face.

Chase is living a dream in the NHL. He’s had some issues this season, and his stubbornness keeps getting in his way. He and Jordyn easily fall into a relationship, but he’s still protecting himself from his past.

Overall, I really enjoyed Playing Hurt. Jordyn and Chase are magnetic, and their story was low on the drama, and had just enough angst to keep you hooked. They are an easy couple to root for. The story felt a little slow at times, but it didn’t drag out. I would recommend to the reader looking for a flirty romance with a sweet singer and a sexy hockey player.
