In It to Win It by Kelly Jamieson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Terrific sports romance

This book had a lot of heart. Generally the heroine has a bit more angst than the Hero, but in this one the Hero had the lions share. He was also the more likeable character. That isn’t to say that the heroine was unlikeable, buy I thought the Hero, JP Wynn the Hockey Star from a Hockey dynasty was a better character. Taylor, the speech therapist is a good person, but some of her reasons for doing things were silly. She dates someone else for a while when she really likes JP for a really dumb reason.

The two meet at the wedding rehearsal of JP’s brother, Theo who is marrying Taylor’s friend Lacey. JP and Taylor are in the wedding and are attracted to each other and they end up sleeping together that evening and again the following day. JP has some issues with his family due to the fact that his brother Theo has always been smarter than him and held up to him as the perfect son.

JP has always felt that he can’t live up to the perfect standard that Theo sets. For the past year, JP’s family has been angry with him for stealing Theo’s former girlfriend Emma (the one prior to Lacey). They all think it was awful thing for a brother to do, despite the fact that it showed Theo what kind of girl Emma was and allowed him to meet Lacey.

Taylor had been dating a Hockey player named Manny, on the team Theo coaches until Manny got traded and ghosted her. Manny also shows up at the wedding. JP works very hard throughout the story to better himself and though he doesn’t always do the right thing, he is a great guy. The romance is beyond steamy. The side characters are funny and entertaining. I really enjoyed the journey and the fact that JP was willing to do all sorts of out of the box things for a manly hockey player in order to try to work on himself, reduce stress and get in touch with his emotions. Great story.

Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
