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 expec

“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, una

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

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 temp

I absolutely loved this audio book! The narrator helped bring this book to life, and it was so entertaining. The chemistry between Marc and Lovey was hot, and I loved the other characters from the team. I can’t wait to read more from this series!
Endearing, cute and sexy. A great weekend hockey romance about a carefree and breezy girl who dazzles a master of self-control and discipline into letting some fun in his life.
“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.”

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

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 essa

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:

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.

Lovey Armstrong quit her job after dumping her boyfriend boss and is moving to Chicago. She shows up at her brothers condo unannounced and intends to stay there to get back on her feet. Lovey's brother Duncan is a pro hockey player for the Chicago Aces. He's not thrilled with the idea of his sister moving in with him and disrupting his bachelor lifestyle.

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 f
Lovey Armstrong is looking to change her life up and the first stop on this adventure is crashing at her big brother's Chicago pad.

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

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.

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 ab

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury series which is why, after reading the blurb for Major Misconduct, I figured it'd be right up my alley. Being my first time reading anything by Kelly Jamieson I wasn't really sure what to expect but I really enjoyed this one.

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 apartmen

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!!

Liked the storyline, really liked the H, Marc, but absolutely HATED the heroine! (I even hated her name: Lovey!) I can't remember reading about a more selfish, spoiled brat ever! Lovey alone is the reason I had to deduct two whole stars...

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

An amazing start to a new series. It has a great group of characters that should provide us with fantastic stories in the future. In this one we have Lovey Armstrong. Duncan Armstrong is one of the pilot players and Lovey is his little sister. She's hilarious, free spirited, and determined. When she shows up on the Duncan's doorstep needing a place to stay he obviously can't turn her away. Having her staying there with him and his roommate probably isn't the best idea though.

This was a nice and sweet romance and if you like sports romances and have time on a rainy afternoon, that is definitely a book for you

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
