Review of Hot Shot (Last Shot #2) by Kelly Jamieson

“Occupying  Vagistan!”

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance

Book Length (Est.): 235 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

A former Navy SEAL and current bad boy bar owner learns to trust a free spirit in this steamy novel of unexpected romance from the bestselling author of Body Shot and the Heller Brothers series.

Marco Solis knows that if he gets too close to people they disappear. His parents were deported back to Mexico when he was fourteen, his fiancée married someone else while he was in the military, and now his business partner’s spending more time with his girl than with Marco. For better or worse, that’s how Marco meets Carrie Garner. She’s legitimately model-hot. She’s also a nut—a wild, artsy, unapproachable nut. So why is Marco so interested in cracking her shell?

Although Carrie Garner is a natural in front of the camera, her dream is to make it as a photographer. Soon she’ll be heading to Spain for design school, and she’ll miss her best friend, Hayden, like crazy. She’ll even miss Hayden’s boyfriend, Beck—but she won’t miss Beck’s partner, Marco. Bossy, brooding, and annoyingly sexy, Marco really pushes her buttons, though he obviously wouldn’t mind pushing her buttons in an up-against-the-wall, hard-and-fast kind of way. The craziest part is, if Carrie lets him do that, well . . . she may never want to leave.

Marco has been interested in Carrie since the night they met at his Tequila tasting. Their friends hooked up and got engaged, but Carrie just doesn’t seem interested in him. As a matter of fact she pretty much seems to hate him, but that won’t stop Marco from figuring out why.

Carrie doesn’t want to be defined by the fact that she’s a model so when Marco tries all the typical lines on her she pretty much runs as far away from him as possible, but when he comes up with a plan for their friends she can’t help but participate.

Surprise party planning causes Marco and Carrie to spend more time together than she would have liked, but when her niece goes and does something that forces them to spend even more time together there’s only one determined outcome…they’ll slowly learn things about each other and closer and closer they will become until they can’t bear to be apart.

Hot Shot is a fun read about fierce determination. Damn, but Marco is one determined man! It’s about insecurities and pasts that continue to haunt their presents. It’s about overcoming preconceived notions and bumbling comments. It’s about love and how it sneaks up when you least expect it to. It’s another great book by Kelly Jamieson and I look forward to book three, Long Shot.

“You’ve deduced my dastardly plan to debauch you.”

“Oh wow. That was a good sentence.”

He choked. “Glad I impressed you with my words.”

“Oh, you’re impressing me with more than just words. Those hands…God.”

Review of Body Shot (Last Shot #1) by Kelly Jamieson

Body Shot

A Little Tequila Show & Tell

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance

Book Length (Est.): 275 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

The bestselling author of the Heller Brothers series stirs up a tempting cocktail of fun and seduction as a sexy SEAL-turned-bartender treats a buttoned-up scientist to a wild weekend . . . and a change of heart.

Former Navy SEAL Beck Whitcomb left a world of privilege to prove he could make his own way. Money, mansions, expensive cars—none of it could heal the loss of his older brother, or buy his parents’ love. Now, after using his trust fund to open the Conquistadors tequila bar with his brothers-in-arms, Beck has it all: good friends, fine liquor, and hot hookups. When it comes to women, commitment’s not his thing—until he gets a taste of the pretty professor who walks into his bar . . . and winds up in his bed.

Hayden Miles knows all too well that emotional decisions can lead to heartbreak, and nothing screams “bad decision” like a playboy bartender with inked biceps and a wicked smile. Still, their chemistry is off-the-charts explosive—and Hayden knows her chemistry. For once, this good girl longs to let loose. But is she willing to risk the pain to quench her thirst? With the promise of more on the table, Hayden’s eager to believe . . . before she misses her shot.

Has anything ever good started with the words ‘Tequila Tasting’? I’d venture to say no, but for Beck and Hayden the answer is a definite yes.

Beck knows what it’s like to live in hell and since he got out of the military he’s been living it up and enjoying everything life has to offer. He owns a tequila bar with his friends, he skydives for fun, and can have any girl at any time. That’s the man everyone sees. But underneath he has a heart of gold and he gives way more than he gets.

Hayden is a straitlaced, job focused kind of girl. Her priorities all lie within her work and dating isn’t on her agenda. Then Beck happens. He’s a whirlwind that sucks her in and she’ll love every minute, except for when she over thinks, which she does quite often.

They’re complete opposites, but every time they test each others limits or see what they themselves are capable of it pulled me in a little more. From the witty conversations to the dirty talking moments there’s never a doubt that Beck and Hayden have what it takes.

Body Shots is sexy and humorous rolled up in romance. The characters were loveable, the storyline captivating, and overall I enjoyed every single page.

My Favorite Moment: Beck’s reactions to Hayden are hilarious, especially the first time he displays a little jealousy.
