Jamieson's OFFSIDE is a quick reading contemporary romance that continues the HELLER BROTHERS SERIES.  We are reunited with all the brothers and their families and it was a pleasure to do so!  I was not disappointed.

OFFSIDE, HELLER BROTHERS #5, drew me in from the beginning and I couldn't put it down.  There was so much going on throughout.  Not only with Honey and Matt - professionally and personally - but with family, friends and coworkers.  Honey came from such a dysfunctional family that it shed light on why she acted the way she did growing up.  Her mother was a piece of work and never had a kind thing to say about Honey.  It was sad that she and her two grown brothers all had to tiptoe around her and couldn't be themselves.  It was nice to see Honey repair her relationship with her dad as well as with Matt when she needed to.  Matt had so much caring to dish out but never forgot his roots.  It was fun to watch Honey and Matt's chemistry but wished Matt's colorful language could have been toned down.  There was sadness, heartache, tears, sorrow, remorse, happiness, laughter, romance and love and lots and lots of hockey.  There was some closure, a nice ending that took place in Canada, but I would have loved to see all the loose ends tied up with a few more chapters or an epilogue.

I have previously read several of Jamieson's other books including FACEOFF, BOOK 2 in the HELLER BROTHERS SERIES.  Now I need to go back and read the other books to fill in the holes of how they each got their happily ever after with the woman they love.  I'm sad to see that OFFSIDE is the last book in the series but hope we're reunited with them again since there seems to be more story to tell.
