Play to Win by Kelly Jamieson

He only plays to win…
Play to Win by Kelly Jamieson is now live!

Meet the Wynns—a hockey dynasty built on family, money, and drama. From USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson, the first novel in a new series is a total win-win.“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—Carly Phillips

After an injury forced Théo Wynn to give up professional hockey, he turned to his second love: numbers. Now, as the general manager of his grandfather’s NHL team, the Los Angeles Condors, Théo is dying to prove to the rest of his family—especially the brother who betrayed him—that he’s just as successful as the rest of them. If only Théo had a gorgeous woman on his arm to complete the picture. . . .

Lacey Olson needs to get out of Las Vegas right now, thanks to her no-good, crooked brother. When a handsome stranger who’s out partying with friends comes to her rescue in the cocktail lounge where she works, they strike up a conversation that leads to a crazy plan: her leaving with Théo for L.A. tomorrow. A few drinks later, the idea gets even crazier: a quickie marriage that works for both of them.

But back in California, Lacey immediately turns Théo’s precise, well-ordered life into one big beach party. And before long, she’s tempting him with her smart mouth, sexy body, and sunny charm. The last thing Théo needs is a real relationship to distract him. Because he only plays to win. . . .

Review by Susan:

This is the first book in a new series and what a start it is! The series follows the Wynn family, they are a large, loud family and are all connected to hockey in some way.

This story follows Theo and Lacey, Theo had a short career in the NHL but is now starting a new career as GM for his grandfathers hockey team, his last night in Vegas, he rescues a waitress from some thugs who her brother owes money to. After a few drinks they decide to help each other out, one fake marriage and they are off to California.

What starts out as a fake marriage soon morphs into something more, both try to fight their feelings but soon give in. Both jaded with life, can they let go of the past and give the marriage ago for real??

I really enjoyed this book, I read it in one sitting, there are a lot of Wynn family members which was a little confusing at first but I soon got into the story. Although it was a little cheesy the whole wedding in Vegas, I loved that we get to go along with them while getting to know each other and seeing their relationship blossom and bloom into something more. I liked both Theo and Lacey, at first it doesn’t seem like they would fit as a couple, they were perfect for each other.  This was an easy read with low angst, I can’t wait to read the next instalment from the Wynn family.  4 Stars
