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.
5 out of 5 stars
I've read quite a few of Kelly Jamieson's books and I've loved every single one of them. Body Shot is the first in her new series, "Last Shot". Jamieson has a perfect balance of romance and sizzling bedroom (or office, shower, changing room etc.) scenes in her books that makes her one of my favorite romance authors.
Hayden is a biochemist and is very focused on her work to find a cure for cancer. Cancer took both of her parents when she was just a teenager, and left her aunt and uncle to care for her. Her aunt recently broke her hip so now she has that to focus on now too, leaving her too busy to have fun or date. She is not spontaneous at all. She likes to have things perfectly planned out. When she was younger she was teased because she was always shy and more interested in her books than the things other kids were into.
Beck is a former Navy SEAL that owns a tequila bar with two of his friends. He is all about fun. He doesn't take himself or relationships seriously, choosing a love em and leave em lifestyle. He comes from a very wealthy family, but they are not close. He inherited money from his grandfather when he passed but he doesn't live extravagantly.
I loved these two together because they were such opposites: the serious professor with the thrill seeking bartender. It was so much fun watching Beck get her to live a little bit and try some new things. Their "no strings attached", "just for fun" sexual relationship was super hot and I thought the feelings between them built at a nice pace and didn't feel forced.
As a side note, I REALLY hope the next book in the series is Hayden's best friend and Marco.... Somethings going on there, I know it! lol
