Jaymee Jacobs | Author-Reader Match: CHASING DOWN THE DREAM + GIVEAWAY!


Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Jaymee Jacobs!


Hockey romance! I have a few standalones, but most of my books are in the Dallas Comets series. My stories are about millennials and dating in the age of technology.


I'm just a hockey fan for looking for her own happily ever after. By day, I work in the corporate world, and by night, I scribble down whatever the voices in my head tell me to. I've got two feline roommates who help to make life interesting. Our favorite pastimes include reading, writing, and binge true-crime documentaries.

What I’m Looking For In My Ideal Reader Match:

My ideal readers are okay with:

  • an HFN (happy for now)
  • imperfect characters who are trying their hardest to live their best lives
  • not your typical romance

Must love:

  • strong and capable heroines
  • sensitive and sexy heroes
  • a little splash of sports thrown in

What To Expect If Compatible:

  • the unexpected!


COMMENT TO WIN: A signed paperback copy of Chasing Down the Dream (open internationally).



Blue Collar Romance #1

Chasing Down the Dream

From USA Today best-selling author Jaymee Jacobs comes a best friend’s sibling romance packed with heat, heart, and happily ever after.

When Kasey Ruggieri returns to her hometown after her fashion design business implodes, she barely recognizes the handsome guy with a smokin’ body who comes to fix the HVAC as her brother's best friend. The skinny teenager she once knew is gone, and when Asher strips off his shirt to work in the boiling heat, Kasey can't take her eyes off his glistening, muscular chest. Now she needs more than air conditioning to cool her desires

Asher Wallace has had a crush on Kasey ever since he realized girls don’t have cooties. She’s beautiful, talented, and fun. But as his best friend’s older sister, she’s completely out of his league. Once Kasey left Oak Bend to pursue a fashion career in New York City, Asher shelved his boyhood crush and moved on from his college hockey days and into the family's heating and cooling business.

When Kasey and Asher finally connect, there’s enough heat to melt a Michigan winter. But when Kasey stumbles onto a new, profitable fashion venture, will she leave Asher behind for the bright lights of the big city once more? Or can Asher prove to Kasey that love and success can be found close to home?

Welcome to Oak Bend, where blue-collar hotties work hard and love even harder, especially when it comes to landing their happily ever after.

About Jaymee Jacobs

Jaymee Jacobs

Jaymee Jacobs is a USA Today best-selling author and author of the Dallas Comets series. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in English literature and a psychology minor.

Her books have the same two themes: hockey and the "millennial" experience. The first is because she's a die-hard fan (particularly of the Pittsburgh Penguins). The second is because she felt that there weren't any books to which she could personally relate. So she began to write the stories she wanted to read. Her books spotlight those in the up-and-coming generation as they navigate this new era of ubiquitous technology, online dating etiquette, and what it means to "adult."

When she's not writing, you'll find Jaymee curating her cats' Instagram account, listening to true crime podcasts, scrolling through Pinterest for fructose-free recipes, or yelling at the TV during Penguins games.

Sounds like a fun story. Thanks for the chance to win.

I've never heard of the category HFN (Happy For Now). Hockey
holds a special place in my heart as my oldest son played
youth hockey and I asked him if he could be a bit gentler
with his checks (hits on the opposing team against the
boards). He said they were legal checks. My youngest son in
his first game was going to crash into everybody by the net,
but just lifted his legs and hopped over them all. Hockey is
an exciting game, skating mighty fast. I call it boxing on

This sounds really good. I like to read about characters who
get a second chance with their old crush, and the storyline
makes me think of playing street hockey in my youth.
(Tina Rucci 1:58pm September 10)

Are you sure you aren't secretly a Canadian?
Hockey is our national sport.
(Amie Gaudet 6:04pm September 10)

This sounds like a really interesting book and I plan to add this to my TBR List.
(Chelsea Knestrick 2:20am September 11)

I am liking the sound of this story... thanks for sharing!
(Colleen Conklin 5:54pm September 11)

I don't know what the phrase ubiquitous technology means.
And it sounds like I am way too old for this book. But I
think I would enjoy it a lot.
(Melanie Rosen 6:33am September 12)

I used to love to go to the hockey games when San Diego had a team. It is
a fun game to watch as a fan.
(Jackie Wisherd 8:46pm September 12)

Looks like fun! It's great to be able to go to hockey and
baseball games again.
(Nancy Krueger 7:55pm September 13)
