Got the Life: A Nicki Sosebee Novel by Jade C. Jamison

Nicki Sosebee wants her first headline, but she doesn't want it to read "Reporter found dead."

Since leaving school years earlier, Nicki Sosebee has long since given up on the notion of The American Dream, but that doesn't mean she doesn't still have dreams of her own. She realized early on that her college degree isn't worth the paper it's printed on, but she also knows that she doesn't want to work for minimum wage the rest of her life.

She wants MORE.

To get there, she's been learning the ropes as a novice reporter for her hometown newspaper, but it doesn't take her long to find out that her naïveté is not doing her any favors. That's where her best friend Sean Ramsey comes in. He gives her advice when her instincts steer her wrong and he supports her when she needs it.

Oh...and he's HOT.

She's had it bad for Sean, ever since The Night eight years ago, the one time they hooked up and had the time of their lives, but she ruined it when she accidentally called him her ex-boyfriend's name in the heat of passion. And they've been friends only--and hands off--ever since.

Nicki's currently investigating a story that she thinks might result in her first headline. One of Winchester's bad boys has been locked up for arson, but as Nicki digs deeper, she finds it's not just a case of trying to set fire to a house...and between being seduced by a bad ass biker and potentially getting caught by the bad guys before she can write that headline, Nicki starts to wonder if she's really GOT THE LIFE.

About 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 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.* Shannon, My Secret Book Spot
