I...I...don't even know what to say.
The blurb sounded pretty good and I love sports romance , which is why I requested it. And I've enjoyed this author's books before.
Definitely not my cuppa. The heroine was way too flaky and just plain annoying to me. She made an arbitrary decision to move in with her older brother in Chicago without informing him. Not a phone call. Nothing. She just showed up unannounced. And considering that her brother has a roommate, she totally expected ...more
Lovey decides to move to Chicago and get a new life, and she moves into his brother’s house. What she wasn’t counting was the hot hockey player that not only his her brother’s best friend and teammate, he’s also a roommate in the house.
They know they shouldn’t get together and that her brother will goes nuts if he finds, but some things are just too strong to resist.
I’m a sucker for books with athletes, hockey players holding a special player in my heart. Mix that with ...more
“But it’s windy. It is the Windy City.”
“Chicago is no windier than any other city.”
She frowned. “But it’s called the Windy City.”
“That apparently has to do with the long-windedness of Chicago politicians.”
“Huh.” She tipped her head. “Really? But it is windy today. I’m sure hundred mile an hour winds.”
He grinned. “Yeah, Lovey, it’s windy.”
Well, I gave it to 20% but this book's just not for me. My main complaint is Lovey. Yep, she goes by Lovey. From the beginning when she shows up, ...more

I had high hopes for Major Misconduct having read and enjoyed quite a few sports romances recently, they have been my 'go-to' genre when I want a little romance and escapism, because if you met me you would know I am the most un-sporty person you are ever likely to meet. I have also heard a lot of good things about Kelly Jamieson, so I started the book with a certain level of expectation.
Sadly, it was always going to be a struggle to stay invested in a ...more

Lovey Armstrong quits her job, breaks up with her boyfriend, and packs up to move to Chicago. Not having a place to stay when she gets there, she heads to her brother to stay with him. She just didn’t expect her brother’s majorly hot roommate.
Marc Dupuis, a.k.a Captain Codger, was shocked to find a sexy as hell woman sitting in his living room. And even more shocked to learn she was his roommate’s sister, which means off limits to him. But some ...more
“He wanted her to pull him into that circle of light and warmth she seemed to create everywhere she went, to ease his pain and frustration, to make things seem good again.”
Lovey Armstrong has always lived in the shadow of her older, successful brother Duncan. She’s always loved him and has been supportive of his ...more
Honestly, the blurb pretty much sums up the whole book. Marc Dupuis is perfect. Too perfect. He is the captain of the Aces, does a lot of charity work, and dedicated to whatever he puts his mind on. I really like him, but he isn't that interesting.
Lovey, on the other hand, is a free spirit. Unfortunately, she also came off annoying and childish. There were moments I wanted to slap her.
If you're looking for a very light steamy read, Major Misconduct wouldn't be a bad choice. But if ...more

This book was a hard one for me to review. I LOVED Marc. Loved him. Total book boyfriend material. The issue i have lies with the heroine, Lovey. I don't think there was a time where I have read a book before and found myself HATING the heroine.
Here's a list of why she bothered me:
*Her use of 'cheese' puns instead of cursing- "Oh, cheese-its!" "For the love of cheese!" Yes, I get it. You worked as a PR ...more
5 delighted and love is worth trying for stars. I really enjoyed this novel for so many reasons. One, I could really become Lovey. I am around her age and her struggles with finding herself, figuring out her career path, and even navigating her love life really hit home for me. Two, I loved Marc. Dear God, Marc is a dying breed of man and I really need to find me a Marc. Three, the explosive chemistry between Marc and Lovey. I think three reasons is enough otherwise I'd write a 50 paragraph ...more
This book is a light, flirty and fluffy romance. While Marc was adorable, Lovey was basically an immature spoiled brat and just too flighty for me. It was a struggle to finish the book.
Gah, I just couldn't do it! I tried, I really really did, but I couldn't get myself to continue reading this book.
I wanted a cute, easy book to start the new year with, and I got something that annoyed me to tears! The characters sucked, and the female one was such an... ok, I'm not gonna say idiot, but she was damn close! I wanted to take my kindle and throw it out the window a few times (and I only read about 50% of the book!). And what's with all the cheese insults ...more
Oh boy, I now have a new sports team to keep up with. Marc is seriously hot and such a sweetie. He can talk French to me anytime. Lovey annoyed me at times. She could be childish and her cheese cussing got a little old. But together, they were smoking. Can't wait to read more of Aces stories.
Hockey rules : I love it, and I especially love when it mixes with my romance. When I saw the chance to start up with a new hockey romance series, I couldn’t resist. I’ve never read anything by Ms. Jamieson, but I enjoyed the fun little ‘verse she’s created - that it’s populated with a bunch of hot hockey guys, not a hardship.
The premise is pretty straightforward : Stuffed shirt meets special snowflake (emphasis on ...more
Marc Dupuis is blown out of the water by the hot little vixen that has moved into the apartment he shares with his team mate, Duncan. Rule number one, don't ever date your buddy's sister. That and a lot more rules are about to get blown out of the water.
Lovey has never really been taken seriously, but she definitely has a plan for her life. Duncan and Marc repeatably ...more

"She hadn't planned on living with a hot hockey player with a body that could turn a girl to a puddle of lust... but this was going to be fun!" - Lovey, Major Misconduct by Kelly Jamieson
I was so excited for this book, that I practically jumped up and down when I got an ARC to review for it. Oh... who am I kidding? I -did- jump up and down. Major Misconduct is the beginning of a new series by the talented Ms. Kelly Jamieson. Do I sound bias? I may be, just a little bit. :D I've never read ...more
It's difficult to like a story when you had such a dislike to the main character as I experienced here. The heroine, one Lovey Armstrong bugged the hell out of me since the story began. She struck me as bossy, flippant, selfish and rather cowardly young lady. She showed up out of the blue in her brother's condo, presumed she could live there, took one look at his roommate and decided she wanted him and proceeded to make way for that to happen.
I'm sure there had to be ways to make the ...more
After breaking up with her boyfriend and quitting her job, Lovey decided to move to Chicago and start a new life. Her brother, Duncan, isn't all that thrilled with her thinking she can crash at his ...more
Oh my GAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!! I have a new book boyfriend. His name is Marc. He's French. He's a hockey player. And he is H-O-T-T HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While I cannot fully divulge in my review (will do so closer to release date), all I can say is ladies, get ready. I am head over heels in love with this man and his French and his sexiness and all that jazz!!
And as for Miss Lovely? Honestly, she had bubblegum and unicorns coming ...more
I think the author was trying to depict a carefree, young, sweet and funny girl, but failed miserably. The way she tries to seduce Marc just for the fun of it, because she has an itch that needs scratching, totally disregarding the fact that he's not a player ...more
I have to confess, Lovey was not my kind of heroine at the moment, as she was portraied as very flighty and not very serious or responsible. but that changed and in the end, I really liked her.
Marc was a great character and these two definitely completed each other. the development to this was great to see.
all in all, 4 satisfied stars
What is it about a Kelly Jamieson book that I love? I read adventure paired with romance. The closest Jamieson's books get to adventure is a hockey puck to the face. The majority of books I read are in space, in the future or in the past. Yet hers are always set firmly in the present. I like the spicy side of romance described in books. Jamieson.....well, she does that. Deliciously.
It is easy to get buried in the people that make up a Jamieson book. They are like this ...more
