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.
Praise for the novels of Kelly Jamieson
“Steamy, sweet, and a whole lot of fun!”—USA Today bestselling author Serena Bell, on Major Misconduct
“A sweet story with plenty of heart about that bad boy you always wanted, who couldn’t wait to have you, too.”—Award-winning author Cecy Robson, on Off Limits
I’ve only read one book by Kelly Jamieson so far – though I have her box set of the Heller Brothers on my Kindle.
At first I wasn’t convinced by Body Shot, because Hayden was a bit boring, but thankfully I have a review policy of giving every book 20 – 25% to convince me and convince me it did.
I loved Beck – he was hot and dirty and totally a nice guy in a body of a badboy – and while it took some time for Hayden to win me over she still did and I would have loved her too if not for the stupid thing she did near the end. So I ended up “only” liking her. She was still pretty cool, though. I liked her determination to be good at everything she does.
Apart from my initial boredom of the book I really liked it and read it through in one sitting after I got over the first two chapters.
I liked Beck’s POV a bit more than Hayden’s, just because he was more carefree and funny. Also he brought out another side of Hayden.
The conversations between Beck and Hayden were hilarious and I had a few good laughs. Those two definitely had some serious chemistry and that lingerie shop scene was really steamy. In fact all their sex scenes were smoking hot.
The twist near the ending was a bit much and in my opinion too obvious but it made sense when you take the whole book in consideration.
I will definitely be reading the second book of this series – should there be one.
Rating: 3,75 stars
