Goaltending Summary

WANTED: Single dad needs nanny--In more ways than one. 
Martin "Brick" Bricker is living the good life. He's playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star.  At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously —except hockey, of course.
Then a knock at his door changes everything. Suddenly he's the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn't know he had, and he's trading his playboy ways for Barbies.
Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she's offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she's in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl's hot single father. 
Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn't want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life. If they fit at all.  
But one thing's for sure: Brick can't block this shot straight to his heart.

I enjoyed this story. It was romantic and realistic. I wanted more at the end. That’s always a sign of a good romance story!45


Self centered to family centered5 star

Brick starts out a rich douche bag. Life comes back to bite him in the butt, and force hm to grow up. He realized what really matters and goes full throttle to get it back. This is a good love story. Would recommend this to others!55

Poor Sap. Love to hate him5 star

I absolutely hated Brick when this story started. By the end of the book I felt sorry for the poor sap. Having read the other books in the series I have followed Brick as the guy who hates clothes and loves the cold. I learned why in this book and was surprised to say the least as to why he loves the cold. Jami delivered a book I couldn't put down even with life happening around me. Amelia and Macy were introduced in the this read. My heart hurt for Macy from the time Brick opened the door to her. Amelia is such a strong person to have kept this little clan together. Definitely going on my read again list! Thank you Jami for the hours of reading and enjoyment this book brought.55

Loved it!!!!4 star

I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This is the next book in the Seattle Sockeyes series. This book is about Martin “Brick” Bricker, the goalie. He is a fun-loving guy, no attachments, no commitments, just playing hockey and having fun. One afternoon all of that changes when he answers the door to “Daddy!!!”. Brick doesn’t have any kids, well not that he knows of anyway, but all of that changes today. Brick is now responsible for a 5-year-old little girl and has no clue what to do, he doesn’t even really like kids. He is pretty sure this is all a mistake, but he needs to go on a road trip so he hires an emergency nanny for while he is away. Amelia is a student who is working for her sister-in-law’s day care and agrees to help Brick out. I enjoyed Goaltending, it was a journey for Brick, to come to terms with the fact that he was a father and that he really wanted to be a dad. I liked watching Brick grow from a spoiled playboy into a man wanting to keep his family. I would recommend this book, if you read the series, you got a peek into some previous characters as well as a look into what is coming in the future.45

Loved It5 star

Wow! Jami did it again. What happens when you become an insta dad? You get a nanny of course! Watching Brick, Amelia, and Macy navigate their new world was amazing. There was a lot of emotion for each party as well as healing. A story filled with family, healing, passion, and love. A great addition to the series.55


Sexy & Sweet!5 star

Score! Fantastic read! Goaltending is funny, heartwarming and hot! Between a hot as hell hunk with all the moves that don't quit and a smart witty, beautiful nanny, and a five year old precocious daughter who turn his world upside down this book will keep you glued to the pages. Couldn't put it down. Martin "Brick" Bricker was one lucky guy, he had it all. Good looks, ripped body, more money than he could spend and more woman then he could handle. It was great to be him! As the starting goalie for the Seattle Sockeyes, and known as the party boy life was good. But when he opens up his front door to find a little girl staring at him with dark hair and huge brown eyes and a note telling him that she was his daughter, his fast paced life is about to change. He wasn't father material! Amelia Stacey works part-time at her sister-in-law's day care, it came with an apartment as part of her salary and with her part-time hours she could continue her college classes. When A drop dead gorgeous hunk of a man comes in to the day care looking for a temporary nanny for his five year old daughter she takes the job. The good money she earned would help pay for next quarters tuition. But with a sexy hunk putting out all the moves in his repertoire to get her in his bed, and a beautiful little girl that has lost so much in her five years, will she be able to walk away in two weeks unscathed. Will Brick prove to be father material? Will Amelia let down her guard long enough to fall? Will Brick find something he never knew he needed? You won't want to put this down, as you find out the answers to these questions. Loved it! Don't pass this one up get it now! Received a ARC through L. Woods PR and voluntarily wrote an honest review.55
