    Enjoyable

    4 Star Review of Big Stick (Aces Hockey #7) by Kelly Jamieson This is book 7 in the Aces hockey series and can be read as a standalone. Kelly Jamieson has done a great job with this series and this is Nick Balachov and Jodie’s story. When Jodie moves to Chicago she and her daughter need a place to stay, which is where Nick enters the picture when he lets them stay in his Coach house. All Nick wants to do is concentrate on hockey and have an occasional hook up. The last thing he wants is to be seriously attracted to any woman, least of all single mum Jodie and her gorgeous 2 year old daughter Zyana. Nick has had a hard life with means he has closed himself off to those around him whilst Jodie is his opposite and seizes the moment. Initially they clash but as circumstance and fate continue to bring them together they slowly ease into a friendship with potential for so much more. The chemistry between them is intense and Nick’s affection and behaviour towards Zyana is heart warming. I really loved that Jodie knew what or who she wanted and wasn’t afraid to move forward, her protectiveness towards her daughter was inspiring. The writing was strong and kept my attention and there were plenty of hot and passionate scenes.

    Loved it!

    Loved this one. Big broody hockey player - check. Adorable little girl with a sexy mom - double check! A fantastic recipe for a fun story that has the heart of Nick Balachov lost to the little girl and her mom Jodie because no matter how hard he tries to resist them Nick just can't stay away. Wonderfully written and these characters are amazing. The story will definitely leave you smiling. I highly recommend.

    Reasons

    This is book #7 in the Aces Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order. Jodie and Nick know one another through mutual friends. When their friends think they should move in together, it becomes a series of awkward conversations. Single-mom Jodie cannot afford to get involved with someone too quickly. Can she be near him and not lose her heart? Nick is everything she wants and is hard to stay away from. Little does he know while he pines for the elusive Jodie, she also pines for him. When they learn to see eye to eye, maybe this could be love after all. This was a slow burn. The characters had good interaction and the book was at a good pace. What I liked best was the real touch of the honest way a single parent would react. This title has lots of heat, plenty of heart and an endorsement from me. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review, by Netgalley and its publishers.

    Great addition to the Aces Hockey Series

    Nick is an interesting person, he is always closed off and not very friendly except to a few of his fellow teammates and their significant others but there is something about him that lets you know that he's a tortured soul with a heart of gold, and in this book we find out just how true that is. Big Stick is the seventh book in the Aces Hockey Series and although it can definitely be read as a standalone I feel you will get more out of it if you at least read SLAP SHOT which is about Jodie's best friend, Kendra, and Nicks friend and teammate, Max, this is where we are introduced to Jodie. Jodie is a single mother of the cutest little girl, Zyana, and they have recently relocated to Chicago from New York in order to continue the sex toy business Jodie and Kendra started together and be close to her best friend. Many people wouldn't just pick up and leave a place they are living in just to be close to a friend especially when they can continue to run their business from the two different states but Jodie doesn't have any family and quite honestly she was probably reluctant to let go of the only person she cared about. You have to admit that's pretty bally's and I give her a lot of credit for doing that. This story runs parallel to PLAYING HURT so if you have read Chase and Jordyn's story you will see some overlapping and get a sense of Déjà vu but although the timing is the same the interactions are a little different. I really enjoyed watching Nick loose his rough and tough exterior when it came to Jodie and Zyana, there is some angst but nothing over the top. This was a really good addition to the series, I not only recommend this book to readers that enjoy sports romances but I recommend the entire series. Happy Reading!!!

    Big Stick

    Nick and Jodie are so cute together but since Nick doesn't want kids and Jodie is a single mother they may be doomed before they get a chance to explore the possibilities. Okay. so Big Stick was such a fun read. I loved how Nick responded to Jodie's daughter and his reaction when she was sick was so touching and sweet. Awesome story with lots so sizzle and a happen ending that will melt your heart.
