The Christmas season always puts a smile on Jenna McFadden’s face. Even though she’s bringing a boyfriend home for the first time, inside she’s dying to see Andrew. Years ago, when the McFaddens took the troubled teen into their home, Jenna had to keep her blazing-hot crush a secret. And now that he’s playing pro hockey for the NHL’s Chicago Aces, nothing’s changed. With his wide shoulders and taut muscles, Andrew’s the most tempting package in the house . . . one that Jenna’s dying to unwrap.

Andrew Ross just can’t make a play for Jenna. Her dad and brothers wouldn’t approve, and he could never betray the trust of the wonderful people who treated him like family when he lost his own. That’s what makes the holidays so hard. Whether Jenna’s skating with Andrew on a frozen pond or sitting on his lap while he plays Santa, she’s pushing all their boundaries—and there’s only so much a man can take. Andrew knows that she’s off-limits. But something deep down tells him that Jenna’s heart is the one prize he simply has to win.

Kelly Jamieson… I’m going to tell you right now people, I would walk over hot coals to get to this woman’s books and Off Limits is no exception to that. Off Limits is a novella in the Ace’s Hockey series, that falls between the first and second books. I’m not typically a Christmas book person, but I stopped in my tracks for this one. It’s a second chance romance/friends to lovers which is my weakness. Add in the author? Stick a fork in me, I am done, give me the book!

If you read the synopsis, it covers the books contents exceedingly well. I’ll go ahead and answer the questions I get from most people however. It is a full length novella, but it reads like a book. I didn’t feel as if I was reading a novella at all. There is more than enough content in the book to make it seem that way. It can be read as a standalone, it does have an HEA and there is no cliffy. Off Limits falls nicely into the gap of giving you great material to hold you over until the next book. I loved finding out more about one of the Ace’s Hockey players, personally.

The chemistry between the two main characters is off of the charts. The plot isn’t super intense, but it is angst-y to an extent. For me, that made it even more enjoyable. I put off writing this review for awhile, why, you might ask. Well, because I read the book two more times! I liked it that much! It is a great story, with a fun plot. One I would fully recommend.

Five very happy hockey hearts from me!
