Release Blitz - Play to Win

 
He only plays to win...
Play to Win by Kelly Jamieson is now live!
 
B&N (Nook) -- http://bit.ly/2TISY3u
 
 
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. . . .
 
 
 
 
 
 

Play to Win (Wynn Hockey, #1)Play to Win by Kelly Jamieson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Theo gets an unexpected visit from a relative. Not sure what to make of the out-of-the-blue visit, he goes out to celebrate with some of his team friends. That's when he meets the vision he wants to protect.

Lacey is having a really bad day. Her brother stole from her. Then he sold her to some goons he owes money to. What can she do without having to pay his debt? Then she meets the handsome former hockey player with the sexy eyes.

This is a new series by a great author. She is always a sure purchase author. Hockey makes it all the better for me to read. I loved the humor, the suspense, and especially the heat that jumped off the page with this couple. Sexy and sweet, this book was a great read.

Touch of a Yellow Sun (Colors of Love #2) by V.L. Locey 4 Star Review!!
Touch Of A Yellow Sun (Colors of Love #2) - V.L. Locey

It’s been a rough couple of years for Marek Hafer, roaming hockey protagonist and pugilistic expert. Ending up in Berger Lake, Pennsylvania, on a financially unstable minor league team might just be the ending his wretched career deserves. On the other side of thirty, Marek knows his time on skates is dwindling. His goal now is to spend a few quiet years playing for the Berger Lake Badgers, knock a few helmets together as needed, and then call it quits before his salty personality gets him booted out of hockey permanently.

After a bloody encounter his first night on the ice, the Badgers coach suggests that Marek find a way to lower his violent tendencies before he’s sent packing yet again. That decree leads Marek to knock on the door of his next-door neighbor, Shey Pierson, the owner of Sun Touch Yoga Studio. Shey ticks every box Marek has with his soft blue eyes, flowing golden hair, and long limber legs. The only problem is that Shey is yin to Marek’s yang.

Can a man famed for throwing punches find serenity in the arms of a man known for his tranquil ways?

 

Review

 

V.L Locey writes a lovely character driven sports romance with opposites attract at its heart. 

Our yoga instructor hero, Pierson, is a mystery that slowly reveals itself and he has a great cat. I would love Pierson to get some the same deep character work that Marek got. Everything that Marek does makes sense and his personal path to happiness is really a wonder. 

Complex, grumpy, and shut down, Marek blooms as he falls in love with Pierson. 

The plot goes drifts off course in places with a bit too much in the mix but the romance is always on point. 

A pleasure.

Play to Win (Wynn Hockey #1) by Kelly Jamieson
Play to Win (Wynn Hockey #1) - Kelly Jamieson

Kelly Jamieson has a breakout with PLAY TO WIN, the first book in the Wyn Hockey series.  Needing to prove himself to his family, Théo Wynn accepts the position of general manager of the NHL team, the Los Angeles Condors.  He enlists the help of Lacey Olson to get her out of Las Vegas.  The two decide to get married to help with his plan.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

Kelly Jamieson does an amazing job laying the foundation to the Wynn series.  The Wynn family is very complicated.  Jamieson does a fantastic job of explaining the history and dynamics of the family.  Both Théo and Lacey have been betrayed by their brothers.  I love that they meet each other and help one another with their issues. 

 

Théo is a likable hero.  His NHL career was cut short due to an injury.  He pursues a job in NHL management.  I felt horrible for him and what happened with his previous relationship.  It is understandable why he enlists Lacey’s help.  Lacey is a sweet heroine.  Her brother is a gambling addict who abused their relationship.  The two are good for one another.  I appreciated that Lacey helps Théo relax and enjoy himself, instead of analyzing everything.

 

I am a huge fan of Kelly Jamieson.  I enjoy her writing style.  PLAY TO WIN is an amazing start to the Wynn series.  I like how it ties into the Aces Hockey series.  There is a lot of interesting drama with the Wynn family.  I’m looking forward to the rest of this series to find out how everything unfolds.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Play to Win is no cookie cutter romance. Lacey and Theo do have to tackle a few stereotypical fairytale aspects, but Jamieson packs in a bit of modern attitude to balance out some of the old. For instance, Theo has a knack for rescuing a damsel in distress, but he's no White Knight. Prince Charming wears glasses, loves numbers and is not afraid to show off his sensitive side. When Lacey finds herself in a bind, she refuses to be a victim and she finds her warrior in the most surprising of places. Play to Win fights it's way through the fantasy of who can be a hero and gives it a realistic shine.

He wants out of the friend zone… she doesn’t believe in happily ever after.

 

Relationships are not in Lauren Gentry’s playbook. The only kind she’s willing to consider are friends-with-benefits and even a red-hot and sexy hockey player like Dave Martin isn’t going to change that. Right?

 

When those chocolate brown eyes threaten to melt her defenses she has to remind herself that demons from her past could rise up at any moment. Which is going to be pretty hard to do, since she loses herself every time they touch.

 

Dave used to love the benefits that came easily to professional athletes; especially when they were in the form of puck bunnies who only wanted one night. But when he meets the pint-sized girl with bewitching green eyes and sun-streaked auburn hair his outlook suddenly changes.

 

He wants forever with Lauren. Now he just has to convince her.

 

Can Lauren risk everything for the man she’s secretly been falling for? Or will her past stop her from taking a chance on love?

 

Healthy Scratch—book #1 of the Tampa Suns Hockey Series—is a standalone romance whose main characters’ lives are intertwined with those introduced in The Clearing the Ice Trilogy. You don’t need to read the trilogy to enjoy Healthy Scratch. The book stands on its own, promises HEA, and no cliffhangers! To heighten your enjoyment of the Tampa Suns Hockey Series, you may wish to read The Clearing the Ice Trilogy.
