‘Play to Win’ is the first book of Kelly Jamieson’s new hockey series. I really enjoyed ‘Aces Hockey’ series but I got a feeling that ‘Wynn Hockey’ will be much better. Wynn family is a hockey dynasty and everyone is involved in hockey in someway. They are a big family and when the family is big there are usually tons of dramas, sons suing their father, brother stealing brother’s girlfriend but these family dynamics definitely seems to keep things interesting through the series.
After a career ending injury, our hero, Theo Wynn takes a managerial duty in Las Vegas hockey team. When his grandfather offers him a job and he accepts to become the General Manager of California Condors. But the idea of going back home doesn’t feel too appealing to Theo. He has too much to prove to his family and his backstabbing brother. On his last night during his farewell celebration, he saves their waitress being harassed by two guys. But his saving wasn’t enough because she gets fired right after the event. Lacey Olson is dealing with his gambling addict brother Chris and his gambling debt. Thanks to his brother now there are bookies harassing her. After getting rescued by the hot stranger and getting fired, she was invited to have a drink with his rescuer. Theo always has a plan but Lacey makes him do crazy things, like jumping into a pool fully clothed, getting married with a total stranger and taking her back to LA with him. After their quickie fake marriage, Theo’s life turns into a more entertaining and fun. Their attraction for each other is undeniable and with each minute they share, they start caring and depending on each other. When their fake marriage starts feeling not that fake any more, past shows its face and messes everything up for them. Will they get their HEA? That is for you to find out 🙂
‘Play to Win’ is sweet, inspiring, heartwarming and sexy story, you won’t be able to put it down until you are done with it. Kelly Jamieson and Wynn Hockey definitely becomes an auto buy for me. I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book of the series ‘In It to Win It’ in July and amazing thing is it is about the two people I was dying to read more JP and Taylor 🙂
P.S. I hope Everlyn’s story will be out sooner than later 🙂
