Synopsis |

Wynn family bonds bend but never break. . . .“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—Carly Phillips

JP Wynn: I admit, I’ve made some bad choices—on and off the ice. Now all I want to do is show my team I can control my emotions while I’m playing and redeem myself with my family, especially with my brother, Théo. I hate that I hurt him and I’m determined to stay out of trouble.  But the hot bridesmaid at Théo’s wedding is tempting me into another bad decision. A little flirting and a hook up with Taylor seem harmless . . . until Manny Martinez jumps me on the dance floor and starts beating the crap out of me.
And just like that I add one more bad decision to my résumé.
 Taylor Hart: I always thought hockey players were hot. Now I think they’re crazy. Manny broke my heart when he got traded to another team and left without even a goodbye. Then he showed up at my best friend’s wedding. All I wanted to do was show Manny that I was over him. And the groom’s sexy brother, JP, seemed more than willing to be my distraction. But after the way everything went down, I want nothing to do with any of them.  Easier said than done. Especially when Lacey’s new brother-in-law is always around. . . .
And I keep thinking about the wedding night, when we snuck away to his room for the best sex of my life.

Review

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!
