Jason and Remi want the same thing—no-strings-attached, screw-their-brains-out, burn-the-sheets-up fun. Pro hockey player Jason just broke up with his girlfriend because she got too serious. Schoolteacher Remi just saw the last of the younger siblings she raised leave the nest. Jace isn’t ready for responsibility. Remi’s had enough responsibility. They’re perfect playmates.
But fun and sexy games get complicated when emotions get involved. Then responsibility and commitment crash the party when Jason’s past comes back to haunt him. Like it or not, Jason and Remi both have to figure out what they really want. 

It's no secret that Kelly Jamieson is one of my new faves. She also might be my favorite hockey romance author! So after I consumed her Hockey Aces, Wynn Hockey & her New Adult hockey series, I went to her backlist. To be fair, I read this book in the kindle binding of the whole series, but I will posting reviews for each book individually. 
I have to admit, this one wasn't my favorite by her. It was okay, but I could tell that it was an earlier book and I definitely think she has improved. As authors should! I think that's a problem when you go to author's backlist, but I went into this one understanding that.

I did love that Jace and Remi, were both like, "hey let's just have some fun, no strings." like, hahahahah, okay, you guys are gonna fall in love. That's one of my favorite things about romance books. Especially since I know they are going to have their HEA in the end. Which they do. 

I felt like Remi really needed to just let go of her siblings and let them go out in the world by themselves. Plus, they both were kind of awful!! The other thing that I felt a little meh about in this book was the drama with Jace's ex-girlfriend. Even though Jace and Remi get their happy ending, it kind felt like that wasn't wrapped up to well.

I still enjoyed this one, because it's a Jamieson book and there's lots of hockey, but I do think she has better novels.
