Reese is a waitress. Just a waitress. She’s trying to get her life together after a devastating incident. Working at Conquistadors is helping her to do that. Now if she can just stay out of the kitchen and away from Cade, one of the owners.

Cade is the spreadsheet guy of the business. It’s his job to make the bottom line black instead of red and it’s been a real struggle. When their waitress keeps sticking her nose into things that are not a part of her job description he finds himself getting ri

This series is centered around three ex-seals who retired and opened up a tequila bar called the Conquistadors. Beck and Hayden's story is book one, Marco and Carrie's is book two and Long Shot, we get Cade and Reese.

Cade is the typical playboy that sticks to one night stands only. He doesn't have time for a relationship and he doesn't really believe he can love someone. He's upfront with the women but that doesn't stop them from coming to his bar to try and change his mind.

Reese is the new wai
Kelly Jamieson continues her “Last Shot” series with this sweet and sensual tale of womanizing bar owner Cade Hardy and spitfire waitress Reece Kirkwell.

Reece isn’t really a waitress and she isn’t planning on staying in San Diego for the rest of her life, but for the moment she’s content working at a tequila bar and it would be perfect if she could help revamp the bar’s menu and wasn’t affected by her boss’ flings from constantly parading around. The first she can do, revealing the latter would
I really do like Kelly Jamieson books. They always hold my interest.
This author pretty much has a guaranteed "want-to-read" rating by me for all of her books on the goodreads site and in this case was an automatic request for an ARC from netgalley.

"Long Shot" surprisingly wasn't a sports romance like many of the others that I have previously read by this author. It also appears to be the final book in the "Last Shot" series as well as the third one .

4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cute and flirty romance!! The third and final exSEAL/bar owner finds love.
It’s not always a great idea to mix business and pleasure. Reese and Cade both try to avoid their feelings toward each other. But a panic attack draws them together and there’s no turning back.
This was such a great series by Kelly Jamieson. I have really enjoyed reading her books.
Thanks NetGalley for the arc in exchange for my honest review.

I love when a book catches me off guard, sweeping me away when I'm least expecting it. That's what happened with Long Shot, a sweet and sexy "office" romance of sorts about a restaurant owner and his new waitress. Business mixes with pleasure on these pages and a deliciously complicated tangle of emotion ensues.

I loved it. I enjoyed this story so much. I felt SO MUCH. The chemistry and the undeniable attraction between Cade and Reese are woven seamlessly with heart-wrenching drama and smart humo

There is something about the bar in this Last Shot series that has me giving it the name the little bar that could, three ex-Navy SEALS, brothers in every way, leave the service and decide to open a tequila bar called Conquistadors in San Diego and throughout this series we’ve watched these men figure out how to be business owners, watched them worry about making it, and watch two them find love when they least expect it.

Cade is our last man standing out of our trio of bar owning ex-navy seals. With his charm and an endless supply of hook-ups, there was no sight of Cade settling down or even entertaining the idea. A bit brooding and intense, Cade appeared content with his lifestyle choices, that is until you dig below the surface. Battling abandonment issues from his childhood as well as unexpected insecurities stemming from an accident, it becomes clear as to Cade's emotional barriers. Having witnessed both of ...more

I enjoyed the characters and wished I was as tasting all the food and tequila. The book had characters that we're from the other books in the series but this could standalone. Story was very original and seemed very current. Oh, it was pretty sexy too. Jack was fun too.

So, maybe the problem is my own, but this one fell a bit short for me. I just couldn't connect with these characters, and I never felt engaged in the story at all. Part of the problem might be that I hadn't read the stories that came before this one. I agree with other reviewers that this can be read as a standalone, but I think I personally might have been more invested if I'd been immersed with this group from the beginning. Cade and Reese were likeable characters--I just wasn't feeling anythi ...more

I really enjoyed this series, but to be honest, this was my least favorite book in this series. I never felt a real connection between Cade and Reese. He was the typical "bad boy" to stay away from and she was the women who was hiding something dark in her past (she did so by running away to the other side of the country and taking a waitress job that she was over qualified for).

I loved the other couples in this series and I enjoyed how the author made the books intertwine so that it was

The final book in the "Last Shot" series. It can be read a stand alone but really works best if you read the other two first.

I grew to like Cade although I couldn't stand him at first. Manwhore is too minor of a word for him. Some things come out in the story that kind of explain his actions but still. I wish he had been toned down a little. I did feel his attraction to Reese but I don't understand some of his anger towards her. She saves their butts with coming up with some awesome dis

Absolutely loved this book. The last of the Conquistadors bites the romance bullet and what a story it is!
Reese works at the bar for the guys, Marco and Carrie are soon to be engaged. Beck and Hayden now married and all we see of Cade is the woman in and out of the bar in tears as he gently escorts them out reminding them that he doesn't do relationships and reminds them it was only one night. Reese rolls her eyes and she knows her boss is a manwhore.

This is the third book in the series but it could be read as a standalone, though I would advise that you read the previous two books as those characters feature in this book not heavily but having an understanding of their stories would enhance your reading. This book follows Cafe and Reece, Reece is working as a waitress in conquistadors but as time goes on it becomes apparent that she is much more than that.

4 Star Review of Long Shot (Last Shot #3) by Kelly Jamieson
This is the third and final book in the "Last Shot" series. It can be read as a stand alone but in my opinion to get the most enjoyment I would perhaps read the other two books first.

This is the story of Cade Hardy one of the partners at Conquistadors and the woman who has captured his attention, despite himself.

Conquistadors is a tequila bar, run by 3 friends who also happen to be former Navy SEALS. So, it's popular. But, the food is bad, they know it and Reece knows it. And she tells the customers, which makes Cade angrier at her than he should be...but, there's more going on than what is on the surface.

I liked Cade, a lot. There was an appeal to the guy who looked like a surfer with no cares in the world and the idea that he was so much

Not my favorite of the series but a good read none-the-less! 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 an 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 terri

While I liked Long Shot, it fell a little bit flat for me. It honestly could be just me being in a bit of a blah mood, but overall I found the book a tiny bit lacking.

I really like the characters Jamieson generally has in her book. And while I didn't dislike Cade or Reece, I found Cade kind of hollow. Not like he wasn't a fleshed out character so much as just one of those guys who has very little depth. Reece, was likable enough, as well, but I questioned if she would ever really get the kind

I love this series! I’m sad to see it end but am happy to finally get to see the mighty womanizing Cade fall prey to love. Beck and Marco already found their HEAs with Hayden and Carrie but Cade is determined to keep up his wild ways with one night stands. Until Reese starts working at Conquistadors. He is instantly attracted but knows he shouldn’t act on it because he is her boss. But best laid plans and all that.

A complete 5 Stars for the last book in this series by Kelly Jamieson. I fall in love with every hero she writes and Cade is no different. You just knew from the other two books (though this one can be read as a stand-alone) that Cade would meet his match. He did in one of their waitresses, Reece. But looks can be deceiving sometimes. And there is so much more to Reece than she shows to her bosses. Will Cade break through and get the truth from her?

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 s

This ended up being my favorite one. I was surprised because everyone talked about how much of a playboy Cade was. He was like that for a long time but once he met Reece everything changed. Both of them have been dealing with some things in life and that is what brought them together. They had some ups and downs but in the end it all worked out.

I was provided a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.

Reece was a rising star East Coast chef until tragedy struck, now she's burying her head in the San Diego sand, slinging bad tot-chos at a tequila bar, and not-so-silently judging her (attractive) womanizing boss. Cade and his Navy SEAL buddies have poured everything into their bar and restaurant except halfway decent food. In true military fashion, Cade does not care for his new waitress openly criticizing their

It’s never a good sign when it takes me five days to read a book.

I have read one other book by Kelly Jamieson - Dancing in the Rain. It was fantastic, which is why I requested the ARC for Long Shot. However, right from the beginning it seemed like this was written by a completely different author, reading more like a YA story than one about people who are in their 30s (or very close to it), and had multiple things that just made me roll my eyes. Which is unflattering for a woman on the downward

This book was really slow out of the gates. REALLY. SLOW. In fact, for the first third of this book, I was pretty sure the hero of this book was restaurant/food/kitchen rather than the actual hero. Is there such a craving in romances for such long, loving descriptions of food prep? I honestly found myself in the whole first half thinking way more about the success of the restaurant venture rather than the couple that was supposed to be getting together. Idk, maybe

Long Shot is the third book in the Last Shot Series by author Kelly Jamieson. Kelly Jamieson may be known for writing sizzling sex scenes in her novels, but more importantly, she is known for writing beautiful stories from the heart. Her characters are as realistic as they are loveable, and this is a story filled with a wide range of emotions. Long Shot can be read as a standalone, however, I highly recommend reading the previous two novels in the series, Body Shot and Hot Shot. This series focu ...more
