Book 5, Aces Hockey - An Aces Hockey Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The so-bad-they’re-good alphas of hockey’s Chicago Aces are back in this emotionally charged novel of sex, love, and second chances from the bestselling author of Top Shelf and the Heller Brothers series.

Tanner Bennet hates weddings. They just remind him that he simply isn’t cut out for any kind of healthy, committed relationship—never has been, never will be. After getting rejected by the girl he thought was “the one” all those years ago, he made a huge mistake and married the wrong person. Now that the divorced heartbreaker has reluctantly agreed to be a groomsman for one of his NHL teammates, the last thing he expects is a chance at redemption with the one that got away.

After Marc Dupuis of the Chicago Aces hires wedding planner Katelyn Medford, she discovers that her big break comes with a twist: a reunion with her college sweetheart. The way she dumped Tanner still haunts her. Eight years—and three broken engagements—later, Katelyn knows she’ll never have that kind of innocent, wide-eyed passion again. Still, she and Tanner soon generate enough body heat to burn up the sheets. And even with Tanner’s career with the Aces up in the air, Katelyn’s wondering whether the time is right to let him in for real.

Kelly Jamieson’s USA Today bestselling Aces Hockey series can be read together or separately:

Back to you

This is the 4th book in the Aces Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. Due to the content, I recommend reading this series in order.

Katelyn & Tanner have history. When they meet again at a friends home to plan their wedding, the chemistry ignites. Can they get past what went wrong last time?

Tanner knows he does not want the history to repeat with Katelyn. He also knows they cannot ignore the sparks flying between them at every turn. He has to find a solution or the past will become the present.

This series is so interesting. The characters are all very strong. This story was a joy to read. I was rooting for this couple from page one.

Another player bites the dust!

I love that I can dive into Kelly Jamieson's sports romance books with confidence. I'm getting my hockey fix without having to deal with puck bunnies. Safe sports romance books are not always easy to find. I like that this author focuses more on the couple than on the fame of the player and she does a great job af creating a group of friends that add to the feeling of the book. This is the fourth in the series and we have all the previous couples back again. Saying that, you could easily read this as a standalone.

Tanner and Katelyn dated in College but it ended badly when Tanner got drafted and Katelyn refused to move with him. Personal I thought she was crazy. It was obvious when they met again the chemistry was still there. It took awhile, but we find out there was a big reason she let him go. Both were deeply affected by that break up and you could see it wasn't easy for either of them to risk their hearts again. It was cute to see the committed guys help guide Tanner towards the end. I'd like to think that would actually happen.

I'm hoping the next book is about Kirby. He's not well liked and I'd love to see him find someone to soften him. ARC provided by NetGalley.


This series just seems to keep getting better and better. This is a great second chance story as Tanner Bennett is reunited with his first love Katelyn Medford when she turns out to be the new wedding planner for Lovey and Marc DuPuis. With the attraction as strong as ever these two can't help but reconnect. Will this time work or will history repeat itself??

This entire series is enjoyable and one I highly recommend. This book is one of the best!
