I don’t want anything to do with my crazy family’s drama, which I’ve been watching unfold from a distance over the last year, but now my grandfather has Alzheimer’s and I feel I need to at least make a quick visit to see him. My hockey season’s over, all I have to do is get through my teammate Steve’s wedding, and then I’m on a plane to Los Angeles to do my family duty. After that, I’ll head home to Manitoba for some summer R&R at the family lake cottage.
Nobody’s expecting what happens at my wedding, which becomes pandemonium. I need to get out of there. Fast. Who do I turn to? Jackson Wynn, one my fiancé’s teammates. He’s been a friend to me since I met Steve. For one night, we hide out in his condo, but he’s leaving in the morning for California. I want to go with him.
I can’t take Steve’s fiancée with me to California. He’s going to flip shit over this. But the lying cheating bastard kind of deserves it, and I’ve always had a soft spot for Molly. Or maybe not so soft…because she’s not only sweet and kind, she’s hot as hell. This is a bad idea for so many reasons, and I sure as hell don’t need more drama in my life, but I can’t say no to her.
On this nutso trip, neither of us expect Molly to bond with my bonkers family…especially my poor, confused grandpa. And neither of us expect to bond with each other.
Game Changer was hands down my favorite book in the Wynn Hockey series yet. It was Kelly Jamieson’s writing at its best. What did I love about it? Well, everything.
To be more specific, I adored the entire scenario. The way Molly’s wedding went down, to her hitching herself to Jax’s vacation, to the way they fell in love. It was all so fun and cute. I think what really made it my favorite, though, was the bond between Molly and Jax. They were already trivia buddies and it was easy to see that they had always had a special connection and friendship. That connection made for some humorous situations as well as some sexy ones.
I also loved that there wasn’t as much Wynn family drama in this book. It was simpler in that area, and it made it easier to spend more time on the actual relationship in the book. I hope if there are more books to come in this series, that they follow this trend.
I think the thing I loved about this book most was the epilogue. I don’t think I’ve read one quite as perfect as that one in a while. It was utterly fabulous.
I guess if I had to complain about one thing it would be the cover. That guy doesn’t scream Jax to me.
