REVIEW : In It to Win It by Kelly Jamieson

JP Wynn: I admit, I’ve made some bad choices—on and off the ice.
Now all I want to do is show my team I can control my emotions while I’m playing and redeem myself with my family, especially with my brother, Théo.
I hate that I hurt him and I’m determined to stay out of trouble. 
But the hot bridesmaid at Théo’s wedding is tempting me into another bad decision.
A little flirting and a hook up with Taylor seem harmless . . . until Manny Martinez jumps me on the dance floor and starts beating the crap out of me.
And just like that I add one more bad decision to my résumé. 

Taylor Hart: I always thought hockey players were hot. Now I think they’re crazy.
Manny broke my heart when he got traded to another team and left without even a goodbye.
Then he showed up at my best friend’s wedding. All I wanted to do was show Manny that I was over him.
And the groom’s sexy brother, JP, seemed more than willing to be my distraction.
But after the way everything went down, I want nothing to do with any of them. 
Easier said than done. Especially when Lacey’s new brother-in-law is always around. . . .
And I keep thinking about the wedding night, when we snuck away to his room for the best sex of my life. 

I don’t think you’re such a bad guy, JP Wynn. I think you’re…complicated.


The Wynn Family may be one of my favorite Hockey families. Their family tree is a messy one (if you’ve read the first book and/or this one you understand). It definitely is not easy to be member of this family.

If you’ve read the first book, you may remember JP, you know the one who stole his brothers girlfriend? He is the black sheep of the family and though he is working on his relationship with his family still isn’t his biggest fan. Taylor was also introduced in the first book, she is neighbors and friends with Theo and Lacey.

When they see each other at Lacey and Theo’s wedding there is an instant connection and let’s just say their hook up is HOT HOT HOT! Their chemistry is through the roof. Of course, there is plenty of drama at the wedding surrounding them but they can’t seem to stay away from each other. They try to be friends, but it is a struggle and you can just feel the chemistry and the tension between them. Will the timing work out for these two to every be more than just friends?

I was not a fan of JP in the first book for what he did with his brothers ex, but he MAJORLY redeems himself in this one. There is so much more to the man. Yes, he has some control issues and tends to easily lose his temper, but he also has a sweet side and is super swoon worthy.

I loved every single moment of this book. I was completely sucked into JP and Taylor’s relationship I devoured this book in one sitting. I can’t wait for more of the Wynn family and for updates on Theo and Lacey and JP and Taylor.

For any fans of hockey romances full of steamy and family drama this is a MUST READ.
