When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . .
“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.
Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.
A refreshing take on a trope that's been done and done again. Overall, the story is pretty lighthearted with terrific wit, and the author's use of sarcasm is right up my alley. We also get some great chemistry between Cam and Olivia, including plenty of steamy goodness. In the beginning, I wasn't sure I was going to like Cam, He's that guy, the one who always gets his way, is good at everything, and has no concept of failure. However, as the story progresses, it's impossible not to fall for that charm and cocky attitude, especially with the amount of personal growth for our sexy playboy. Game On winds up the Aces Hockey series, but does stand on its own. And props to the author for including some exciting and nail-biting game play in this sports romance. Kelly Jamieson has knocked it out of the park with this one, and I'm excited to see what she comes up with next.
