The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner

The Wrong Game

From the bestselling author of A Love Letter to Whiskey and the What He Doesn't Know Duet comes an angsty, emotional, and fun sports romance.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’...

    This book is *everything* I wanted this fall. The prologue knocked all the air out of my lungs (I mean, it IS a Kandi Steiner book, after all). The opening was brilliant. The premise set me up for all the angst Kandi delivers, but in a light, comedic setting that had me D Y I N G for these two characters to fall in love and have a million babies already. Gemma is broken, trying to move on in the best way she knows how--with the help of an iron wi...

    I adored this book and devoured it in one sitting. Gemma is a smart, sexy and cute character and I loved the dynamic between her and Zach. I enjoyed spending time with them. I loved the football theme, the story idea was pretty good…the entire book is hugely addictive. I could NOT put it down. I can only compliment the author on the characters and dialogues. Funny and sad, loving and romantic. I really enjoyed this book and if you’re looking ...

    I probably live underneath a rock. That’s why I’ve just read my very first Kandi Steiner book. Like seriously, I want to rock myself in a corner. Because this book just blew my mind! Big time.To be honest, I was totally intrigued by this blurb. Talking about eye catching things... Well, right after the prologue, I was already madly in love with Kandi Steiner’s writing. Is there a thing like love at first sight when it comes to reading? Beca...

    I just finished an ARC of this book, and it is a definite 5 star read. I have a blog where I am reviewing books, If you are interested, stop by.I was gifted with an ARC of Kandi Steiner’s book, The Wrong Game. I had been reading synopses of it on her Facebook page and Instagram account, and I knew I wanted to read it. Every tidbit she posted, I gobbled. When given the opportunity to sign up for it, I jumped at th...
  • Shabby -BookBistroBlog
    Sensitive portrayal of a woman trying to find her footing, the story is full of sweet pain and scarring aches and you get swept away in the throbbing together of broken hearts. “They’re both a little crazy , both a little messed up. But they’re choosing to be messed up together.” It's not a second chance story but a story about second chances that life gives you. Each day is an opportunity to make your life better and brighter. It's not h...

    Wow!! This book was freaking am amazing! Kandi Steiner has written another phenomenal book!! I never wanted it to end. It was fun, sassy, emotional with just the right amount of angst. Zach and Gemma are the best blend of personalities to make the perfect couple. Zach is sweet, strong and oh so romantic. What’s even better is that he’s proud and doesn’t try to hide it. Poor Gemma has been hurt so bad in the past, that you can’t fault her ...

    Gahhhh! This author is amazing!This story is gonna grab you from the prologue!! I was totally blindsided and it made me want more!This is the story of Gemma and Zach.  Two souls with deep scars and a bit leery about giving their hearts away.Gemma is a planner, a list maker a bit OCD.  She has some fresh scars that have really rocked her foundation.  She is looking for something with no strings, no commitment, nothing that will put her heart an...

    Gah! I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about this book! It's sweet, fun, sassy, witty and downright amazing. It's exactly what we've come to know and love from Kandi Steiner.The Wrong Game is so much more than an enemies to lovers romance. It is a story filled with so much heart and emotion. A story about letting go of the past and fighting for the future. It's a story of finding love when you're not even looking for it. It's a story of friendship an...
  • Patricia Rohrs (words we love by blog)
    This has got to be one of the most emotional books I have read from Kandi! Zach and Gemma are two people that have had several blows in their life! Gemma’s heart was broken into tiny pieces and though she is scared of love she never fully lost her light and it was that light that dim hope that attracted Zach! Zach is a hopeless romantic, not the norm for book hero’s but he’s perfect! He doesn’t live in a fantasy world that love makes ever...
  • Heather Brown
    I think whenever I finish a book with a smile on my face and the thought “how did an author come up with that storyline,” it should get 5 stars.You can tell by reading The Wrong Game that Kandi took the time to do some football research, making it a crucial character in the story it was important for her and her readers to feel like we were at every game with the characters. Speaking of characters, the depth that she gave even the secondary o...

    A happy marriage……it’s the catalyst that drives so many people to hang in there when times are tough. For Gemma – everything in her marriage was a dream come true….until it wasn’t. As the sins of her husband came crashing around Gemma , a new pain was also laid at her feet. A struggle that many would have walked away from considering the circumstances, but Gemma chose to stay until the end. A choice that would shape her view on relati...

    OMG! This book did things to me. From the first page of The Wrong Game, I knew my emotions were going to be taken on a ride. My heart was pulled out, flipped around and then shoved back into my chest. But fear not, for as emotional as this was, there was also humor and friendship and heat and family.I'm going to start with Gemma. I just want to hug Kandi Steiner for writing this woman. I connected with her on a level that I haven't with another h...

    4 Stars!This book came at exactly the right time. We’re knee deep into football season which is my favorite time of year. While I’m not a Bears fan, I share Steiner’s love of the game. The heroine, Gemma, is one of the biggest Bears fans around. That’s how she meets our sweet, romantic and drool-worthy hero Zach. These two were adorable together; each smitten in their own way. I really really enjoyed how Kandi incorporated the game of foo...

    The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner“He’s playing to win, 5 stars”First off can we talk about how gorgeous the cover for The Wrong Game is? The cover alone screams one-click worthy. With that said though it kind of through me off. I read the blurb before the cover was revealed and kind of forgot it when I saw the cover. The cover made me think college romance where girl falls in love with a football player, but this is not that kind of story. Fo...

    If you are used to the super angsty books from this author, this isn’t it. While there are some heart tugging moments I didn’t feel it was over emotional. Y’all! Zach is EVERYTHING!!!! He’s probably the most perfect guy! “Growing up in a household full of love taught me a few things —like how to treat a woman, how to apologize like a man, and how to communicate when things got tough.”Zach’s love for Gemma is like no other. It real...

    This book was heartbreakingly good in places. Gemma has a very heart wrenching history that no one would ever want to go through. Zach has a heart wrenching history no one would ever want to go through. The way they come together is fun. I love Zachs romantic mushy personality. How in touch he is with his feelings. One of my favorites in the book is when hes watching a movie with his dad and brother it's just such a chick thing. This book was eve...
