Overview

Nicki Sosebee wants her first headline, but she doesn’t want it to read “Reporter found dead.”

Nicki Sosebee has been working low-paying jobs ever since she finished school, but now that she’s older, she wants more. She’s a novice reporter trying to learn the ropes. Just as she’s getting her career goals on track, though, her love life gets worse and worse. Sure, she has no problems picking up good-looking guys for brief flings, but relationships? Out of the question. Maybe it’s because Sean, her gorgeous best friend, just can’t see her as more than a buddy. So when Sean encourages her as she pursues her first headline-producing story, Nicki realizes that her life’s pretty sweet…if only she can live long enough to see tomorrow’s front page.

Warning: Not for the faint of heart! This book contains explicit sex and naughty language. Proceed with caution...if you dare.

Meet the Author

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade's day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn't stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there's no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women's fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you'll see that her writing doesn't quite fit any of those genres.

You'll have to discover Jade's writing for yourself to decide if you like it.

    ¿Got the Life: Nicki Sosebee #1¿ by Jade C. Jamison 5 out of 5 s

    “Got the Life: Nicki Sosebee #1” by Jade C. Jamison
    5 out of 5 stars

    Nicki had me from her very first sentence: “Why do all the bad boys have to be so f**king cute?” In “Got the Life”, the first book in the Nicki Sosebee series, you can find humor, drama, intrigue, and lots of great sex! Embarking on a career in investigative journalism, our heroine hangs out in the criminal court looking for a story to tell. In the small county of Winchester true crime is few and far between, but Nicki stumbles head first into a case that tests her skills and throws her into danger.

    I love that Nicki never takes herself too seriously. Whether it’s dealing with her fellow employees at Napoli (the pizzeria where she works full time) or trying to earn favor with her boss at the Tribune Newspaper, she does so with a lovely humor. She is not bogged down with thoughts of grandeur and appreciates the value of hard work and determination. The mentoring relationship she has with her newspaper boss, Neal, is almost parental. He has taken Nicki under his wing and sees the potential she possesses. I like that he isn’t gruff and seems to genuinely care about helping her achieve success.

    The drama comes in the form of Sean, her super hot best friend since high school. Their chemistry is on fire and despite their “friends only” status you can feel the tension that surrounds their every interaction. I like Sean…he’s smart, down to earth, and loyal. He’s manly without being aggressive and seems to ground Nicki well. I could understand her longing for a more intimate relationship with him and Jamison does a good job of laying subtle clues that indicate Sean might just be doing a little wishful thinking of his own.

    Nicki definitely knows what she wants in the bedroom and isn’t afraid to go after it. She finds an exciting partner in Carlos and lets us know that even though she longs for Sean, she isn’t waiting around on him to satisfy her needs. I loved her confidence, her adventurous spirit, and her excitement in going after what she wants.

    Her excitement isn’t just limited to her personal life. She approaches her reporting with a zeal that is contagious. She possesses a great intuition and sees beyond the surface to the story beneath. As she ventures from reporter to amateur sleuth, continuing even into dangerous territory, we are right along with her…and rooting for her to solve the case!

    As always, Jamison has a knack for writing her characters very realistically. Nicki could be your sister, your daughter, your friend. She’s not glamorous or her lifestyle far out of reach. She’s everywoman and that makes her relatable. Jamison’s men are just as real, with depth, and seem attainable. I look forward to seeing what Nicki’s next adventure will be and how her relationship with Sean continues to develop. I would definitely recommend this book to all!!

    *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
