REVIEW – BACK CHECK BY KELLY JAMIESON
Back Check is a second chance sports romance that also happens to be the fourth book in a series.
This book can be read as a standalone although I think it would be helpful if the first three were read prior so that you can familiarise yourself with some of the other characters in this book.
Tanner and Katelyn re-unite unexpectedly and there are feelings of hurt and some anger however there is still chemistry there. Seeing if they were able to rekindle what was lost was definitely sweet and entertaining when some of Tanner’s teammates get involved.
This book has some sweet elements to it, a little bit of angst but not a lot. The banter back and forth between Tanner and Katelyn at times had me chuckling a bit.
I am a huge hockey fan and for me I found myself a little irritated at some of the names of the hockey teams. Yes I know this really has nothing to do with the storyline but it is something that threw me off as some of the team names were actually real NHL names and some were made up.
Disclaimer: I did read an unedited version so not sure if the actual version would be different.
This book however didn’t suck me in and for me it was just an ok read.
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.
