Two season tickets. One genius idea. Zero interest in a relationship.
The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other.
I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.
Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.
He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.
But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.
One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.
He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.
The Wrong Game is a stand-alone, angsty, enemies-to-lovers sports romance.


Believe it or not, this is my first read by Kandi Steiner and it definitely won’t be my last. The Wrong Game was such a sweet read with a bit of angst to just keep you hanging on. I wouldn’t say that this is a sports romance per se since neither character plays the sport, but they share the love of the game. And that’s a big part of their story.

Kandi DOES NOT hold back with that prologue, she really set the story up with the ultimate betrayal. And I was soooo nervous as I was getting through the prologue because I didn’t want that part to carry further into the story. Instead we see the aftermath of what she is dealing with emotionally. Her walls are up and finding love again isn’t high on her list.

Well expect the unexpected when it Zach Bowen barrels into her life. And my gosh, I loved him instantly. One of the sweetest book heroes I ever did read and he had to work hard to win Gemma over. But seriously, he was the swooniest of the swooniest and I was here for all of it.

For the full point drop, things kind of dragged for me in the middle and I was just eager to get the story going. But don’t worry, you won’t be disappointed.

Absolutely loved this read and I’m already looking for my next Steiner read!


About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
