This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series, this charming holiday novella features one of the hunky hockey stars of the Chicago Aces.
The Christmas season always puts a smile on Jenna McFadden’s face. Even though she’s bringing a boyfriend home for the first time, inside she’s dying to see Andrew. Years ago, when the McFaddens took the troubled teen into their home, Jenna had to keep her blazing-hot crush a secret. And now that he’s playing pro hockey for the NHL’s Chicago Aces, nothing’s changed. With his wide shoulders and taut muscles, Andrew’s the most tempting package in the house . . . one that Jenna’s dying to unwrap.
Andrew Ross just can’t make a play for Jenna. Her dad and brothers wouldn’t approve, and he could never betray the trust of the wonderful people who treated him like family when he lost his own. That’s what makes the holidays so hard. Whether Jenna’s skating with Andrew on a frozen pond or sitting on his lap while he plays Santa, she’s pushing all their boundaries—and there’s only so much a man can take. Andrew knows that she’s off-limits. But something deep down tells him that Jenna’s heart is the one prize he simply has to win.

Some Passions Burn Too Hot to be Smothered

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Nondescript is the word that comes to mind when looking at this cover. Bland, even. Shirtless male again solid, plain background. Nothing to make it stand out and catch the eye. The synopsis was what caught my interest.
Andrew is the perfect combination of brother's best friend and unofficial foster or step-brother. Jenna had been half in love with him before her parents even took him in to live with them. A weekend of weakness five years ago was the only time they'd given in to the forbidden and never spoke of it again. But some passion burn too hot to be smothered. The secondary characters are just as important in the story as the leads, with terrific dialogue and interaction. With the chemistry burning this bright, it makes me wonder how her brothers and Emily never caught on. But his fears and her insecurities tend to hold them both back until it's almost too darn late. The plot is pretty good, considering the short length of the book. The ease of flow was fantastic, I was able to read it in one sitting without needing to step away from it for a break. The conflicts were there, but they managed to work them out. Predictability was low. The conclusion wraps up well enough, but I did find myself disappointed in not knowing the reactions of her brothers and what became of the house afterall. Even though this is a holiday novella inserted into an already-begun series (which I'd NOT read the first book of), I felt it was able to stand on it's own quite well and I believe that the epilogue hinted at which player would receive the next book in the series. Overall, it was a hot little holiday number that made a quick, steamy read.
Rating: 4.25 [R] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4
Loved this book
I received a copy of this book from the author on Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
Jenna and Andrew make a very cute couple. Their uncertainty abt coming together as a couple was most of the book, but there wasn't any unnecessary drama over their reservations, and there were plenty of hot romance scenes.
What a great book, i had trouble putting it down. Anyone would enjoy this book, it's a wonderful read.
Easy, fun and sexy!
I loved this story! The premise is one you know, but Ms. Jamison does a great job of making the characters real. Andrew and Jenna are very likeable characters and it's easy to see how much they care for each other.
If you like contemporary romance, you'll love Off Limits.
