CWW: Playing to Win by Kelly Jamieson


Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. 
Generally, they're books that have yet to be released. 
It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Playing to Win by Kelly Jamieson


Hockey is my favourite type of sports-romance so I cannot wait to read this even though Kelly Jamieson is a new-to-me author!


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. . . .

What book are you excited for this week?

  1. Ooo. This sounds really good. I like the whole random wedding aspect. I've never read any of this author's work, but I will have to add her stuff to Goodreads now.

  2. I read this and it was good. I feel like Jamieson was laying a lot of ground work, but I am excited to get to know the Wynn family better, and it's interesting seeing all the different sides of the hockey world too.
