Long Shot by Kelly Jamieson

A haunted beauty inspires a Navy SEAL turned playboy bar owner to change his ways in this tender and sensual novel from the bestselling author of Hot Shot and the Heller Brothers series.

Waitressing at a tequila bar on the beach in sunny San Diego may not be what Reece Kirkwell wants to do forever, but for now it’s perfect—other than the flashbacks to the tragedy she caused in Boston. And the fact that one of her bosses is a domineering, first-class manwhore who’s as stubborn as he is sexy. If he’d just listen to her, she could double his business. But it would also mean getting close to someone, and that’s a risk she can’t afford.

Cade Hardy’s partners at Conquistadors are like his brothers, but he’s the money man trying to keep them all afloat. To blow off steam, he’s been sleeping around a little. The last thing he needs is business advice from their crazy-hot new waitress. Cade can’t figure Reece out. She’s smarter than she lets on, and she doesn’t hide her disgust for his active sex life. But after he recognizes her PTSD symptoms, Cade is determined to save her... unless she saves him first.

This is the third in the series – and I would highly recommend that you read them in order, as the story of the three men flows through each book, and the experience will be all the richer.

In this story, Cade, the behind the scenes man, gets to find that maybe, just maybe, he has been infected by the love bug too. It is fun watching him realise what is happening and trying to rationalise his feelings. He has a constant stream of women wanting a second date, yet new waitress Reece is all that he can think about. Her obvious knowledge beyond her job description, her criticism of the food, all get under his skin.

As we discover more about Reece and her past, we understand her behaviour far better. I love that she becomes friends with Carrie and Hayden, and works hard to help the bar succeed.

Super cute and very romantic ending – no spoilers here, read it and see!

Not my favorite of the series but a good read nonetheless! Reece and Cade took me a while to get invested in but getting glimpses of the characters from previous books kept me reading on.

Reece is a chef who had a bit of an incident that had her up and leave her old life behind to now be working as a waitress at a tequila bar. Reece’s true passion is in the kitchen though and when her bosses, especially Cade, are looking to improve their menu, Reece can’t keep her mouth shut about what a terrible job they’re doing. Cade finds Reece infuriating and annoying and he can’t stand that she keeps criticizing the bar food… then on the other hand, he can’t help the crazy attraction he has for her. Reece’s severe PTSD from her old life makes it difficult for her but when Cade steps in to offer his support, the two end up more than just boss and employee.

Reece and Cade just weren’t my favorite characters – I love Kelly Jamieson’s writing though and will definitely be checking out future books. Not being invested in the characters really made it easy to skim, so I found myself doing that a lot towards the beginning. There was so much detail about the food that I just wanted to get to the romance between Cade and Reece! I will say the ending makes it worth finishing.
