My Thoughts:
Sara’s a life blogger/influencer and is set up to interview a new to New York hockey player for a podcast where they meet. They laugh and connect with attraction simmering between them, even though they’re quite different. There were a lot of fun moments of humor, but there was a deeper emotional side to the story, too.  Josh has some personal battles stemming from a tragedy that almost stole his life and career. His past and another personal connection he made in this book had me tearing up quite a bit.

Josh was a bit buttoned up, but underneath a sweet gentleman. He did like to have control over situations and was big on planning ahead which made Sara a woman he theoretically wouldn’t mesh with, but she was a breath of fresh air for him. Helped Josh get out of his comfort zone and have fun. He was able to introduce her to some new experiences, too. Very sexy experiences!

Sara was sweet, quirky and with a zest for life and new experiences. I liked that she felt comfortable in her own skin, but as any normal woman dealt with self-doubt and esteem issues from time to time which made her very relatable.

You Had Me at Hockey was cute, sweet, but also pretty darn hot! It was a pleasing blend of sizzling romance, lighthearted fun, and deeper emotions. Now I’d like to go back and read the first book!

4 Stars



  1. Kelly Jamieson is one of those authors I've been meaning to try for ages and it just hasn't happened yet. I like the sound of these two sort-of opposites and I'm a sucker for a guy that's reserved on the outside and a softie on the inside. :)

    1. It's my first time reading her, but it won't be my last. I really enjoyed her writing! I love those types, too! :)

  2. I like the sound of both of them and glad they were good for each other. Fun that they met over her blog podcast.

  3. lighthearted, deep and romance, yes please

  4. I'm in the mood for a book like this right now! :)

  5. I have this one and this is an excellent reminder I still haven't read it... Argh! Oh well, I'll be reading it next! It sounds like I'm going to like it. :)

  6. It sounds like a good one and more realistic than some.

  8. Sara was zany, but in a good way, and she really brought out a great part of Josh. They were a fabulous couple.
