Review – The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner


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’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.

Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.

He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.

But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.

One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.

He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.


My Review
5 out of 5 stars

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it! I love Kandi’s writing style and will definitely be reading more books by her in the future. I already have several lined up on my Kindle! I saw people talking about this book all over different social media sites. The blurb and the cover caught my attention so I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did!

This was a really fun but also emotional story at the same time. I could really relate to Gemma in a lot of ways. I am a person that needs to have control and when I don’t have it, I can feel myself starting to freak out. I struggle with anxiety a lot and have for most of my life. I have also been hurt by being cheated on. That is a pain that you never really recover from completely – or at least I haven’t. Being cheated on causes major insecurity issues that you are left to deal with. My heart broke for Gemma and I was rooting for her to break her walls down to allow herself to fall in love again.

I absolutely loved Zach. He was such an amazing and patient man. I’ve said before with other books that the main characters were made for each other, but this couldn’t be more true for Zach and Gemma. He is the perfect man for her. He accepted her as she was – anxiety, OCD, and past hurts included. I enjoyed seeing Zach interact with his family and seeing the close bond that they all had with each other. One of the things that I loved most about Zach is that he wasn’t afraid to talk about his feelings or be “emotional”.

As much as I love Zach and Gemma, I can’t write this review without talking about Belle. That girl is just amazing and I loved her to death. I wish I could have just grabbed her out of the book and kept her for myself to be my best friend. She is the most supportive person to Gemma and isn’t afraid to call Gemma out on what she’s saying as well as what she’s not saying. Belle is so funny and feisty as well. I enjoyed getting to know her throughout the book.

This book kept me interested from the very beginning and took me on an emotional roller coaster. I laughed, I cried, and I swooned. I can’t wait to pick up another book by this author!
