This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . . “Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.
Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.

This is the final book in the series and what a great ending it had. I was happy to see this team really sore in Game On. I've gotten to know each one and have loved getting their individual stories.
Game On is Cam and Olivia's story. While all of the previous main characters are in each book, the author did a great job of making them each a standalone book.
Cam was a tough character for me. I liked him but he had his moments where I didn't. This is where the author showed some great character growth. He's the player that has never failed at anything and we got to see a glimpse into his life and how there is more to his story and why he is the way that he is.
I really liked Olivia. She did have some insecurities but they seemed justified and I never felt like they truly got in the way of her and Cam. She really put herself out there for him once she realized she was falling in love with him. I loved to see that especially after all that has happened with her.
For the last book, I loved that the author filled it with some great history of Chicago, IL. I actually live near there and I learned some fascinating things I feel like I should have already known. My next trip to Chicago will be with new eyes.
I'm sad to see this series is over but was reassured that the author is not done with bringing us more hockey romances in the future.
Olivia Lockwood has always felt like she didn’t really fit in with her family, a disappointment. Unlike her brother and sister, she didn’t want a job in the “family” business. She wanted to make a difference in children’s lives. So she started a nonprofit organization that encouraged children to exercise, run. As an overweight child, Liv’s life changed when she was introduced to cross country running. Although she wasn’t an Olympian, it provided her with the push she needed. After missing out on a huge grant, Olivia and her friends decide to drown their sorrows and come up with a new strategy to raise money at the local bar.
Cam and his buddies of the Chicago Aces are always making stupid bets. When his teammates bet Cam that he can’t get a date, then continue to date the same woman for two months without falling in love...Cam immediately accepts. Game On!!! There’s no way he’s giving up his single lifestyle to be with one woman. Until he lays eyes on the woman they’ve chosen...
If you’re looking for a highly entertaining, hockey novel...this is the ONE! The humorous date mishaps remind me of my days on Match.com. The stupid locker room bets where someone always gets their feelings hurt, but you look back on and laugh. That’s only a part of what makes this novel so AWESOME! I enjoyed Cam’s choice of date night activities. I wish there was a place in Oklahoma that had nothing but board games to play. That was the perfect way for Cam and Liv to really get to know one another! Can what started out as bet turn out to be so much more? I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
