Kelly definitely knows how to write a solid hockey romance and I simply can’t get enough of them. In It to Win It is book 2 in the Wynn Hockey series. I’ve been pretty eager for this story since I finished Play to Win. If you read it, then you know that JP didn’t give the best impression to the readers. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure if Kelly was going to be able to swing it so I’d fall in love with the guy. And I gotta say is that he surprised me so much and it may not have been head over heels, but I had so much adoration for his character.
We get a completely different side of JP and there’s a bit of vulnerability and he’s constantly punishing himself for the mistakes he has made in the past. I truly loved getting to know JP a bit more and seeing this other side to him. He truly is working towards becoming a better person and making up for his mistakes.
Throwing Taylor into the mix and you have sizzling hot chemistry. We get to know Taylor from the previous book and I was overjoyed to learn the next book would be about her. There were times when I even questioned some of her motives, but she has been burned and was still trying to get past that.
I am quickly loving Kelly’s hockey reads, the characters are hot and the chemistry is always insane. But she weaves in a story that instantly hooks her readers in. I was completely invested in JP and Taylor’s story. Their instant connection worked for me, but it also felt real because of the conflicts that they came across. I loved witnessing the growth between both characters and I was rooting for these two.
Such a great read with the epic family drama that we can’t seem to escape when it comes to the Wynn family. I can’t wait for the book 3 in the Wynn series!
