Playing To Win by Stacey Lynn Book Summary
It was a three-week fling. Nothing more than a couple of college kids having some fun, but then I did the stupid thing and fell for Jude Taylor quicker than he can score a goal on the ice. And after one beautiful night together, he left for the pros before I could make my first cup of coffee.
I thought I'd put him behind me. I thought I'd moved on. Then he hobbles into my physical therapy office and I realize how absolutely wrong I've been—there's no getting over Jude Taylor.
But now things are complicated. Jude lives half a country away and his career is in direct opposition to my need for stability. Most of all, getting involved with him could mean losing my job and everything I've worked so hard for.
Jude doesn't seem to mind one bit and he's all in. He might be a patient in my office, but he's no longer the patient guy I remember.
This time, he's playing to win, and the prize he's looking to score is me.
Playing To Win (Stacey Lynn) Book Reviews
Safe Sports Romance!I enjoyed this one. Sports romance can cause me a bit of anxiety at first only because they usually have heavy "other women" involvement due to overeager fans. I'm happy to say you do not get that in this book. In fact, I really like how much Jude was crushing on Katie, even years later after their first encounter. I felt like because of that, this was a fun romance even though they had a few obstacles to overcome. I listened to the audiobook version of this and really enjoyed the narrators. It had both a male, and female narrator who showcased both POVs, and I love that. This gives us readers a look into both characters thoughts throughout the book. I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a fun, safe sports romance..~Mindy Lou~Score: 4/5
Second Chance RomanceIf you like second chance romances, sports romances or both this is the book for you. It is the first in the new “Ice Kings” series from Lynn. Jude and Kate were together for a short time in college. He left to begin his pro hockey career, she stayed. Despite unresolved issues they could not forget each other. However, Jude is back struggling to come to terms with a sudden change to his career. He makes it clear that he still wants Kate, she is frightened to trust in Jude and upend the stable life she has built for herself. The chemistry between them is tangible…you get caught up in the push and pull of their relationship as each struggles with their own issues. Lynn regales us with a fun, flirty, and sexy romance! Also, intertwined in the story is a varied cast of supporting characters(Jude’s parents are the best!) that really enhance the story. I enjoyed this book, so if you are looking for a well written, sexy read this is the book for you. Advanced copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review..Fi_larbiScore: 5/5
Jude and KatieJude Taylor is a NHL hockey player who’s career is on the line. Jude comes from a family deeply embedded in hockey. He even plays alongside his brother, until that fateful evening when Jude is injured. Jude suffered a debilitating concussion and a torn ACL. He’s not taking it well and can only think the worst. HIs coach decides Jude needs a change of scenery and sends him home to rehab, hopeful his attitude will change. Katie is a physical therapist who has a history with Jude. She keeps up with his career and knows he has a long recovery ahead, but never dreamed he’d walk into the place she works. Katie knew Jude in college, before he became famous. The day Jude signed a contract as a NHL player, was the day Katie let Jude and her dreams go. Katie blocked Jude’s number and never spoke to him again. Katie loved him so much, that she let him go. She thought she would only hold him back. I really enjoyed this second chance romance. Katie’s selfless acts enabled Jude to concentrate on his career and become the player she knew he could be. Katie also wanted stability after growing up living a gypsy-like life. Katie worked hard to earn her PT degree and worked with some of the best rehab specialist in the country. It took a leap of faith and Jude’s love to enable Katie to take a chance at love. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own..Agent$$$$Score: 4/5

Quietly emotional, sweetly sexy and fun story.Playing To Win is the first book in the ‘Ice Kings’ series by Stacey Lynn. It’s a hockey romance if you haven’t guessed from the title, lol. This is Jude Taylor and Katie Carter’s story. Jude and Katie knew each other in college, they had one hot night together- then the next morning, he was gone. Now, five years later, Jude is a right winger for the Carolina Ice Kings and has been seriously injured during a recent game. He’s sent to his hometown to recuperate and realizes he’s going to be doing his rehab at the place where Katie is a physical therapist. It’s obvious from their first renewed interactions that there are feelings churning below the surface for both of them. Jude never forgot the girl he’d lost his heart to, and now that he’s found her again, he’s not willing to let go without a fight. Katie knew Jude had stolen her heart in college, they’d only been together that one night, but it was a game-changer for her. She’s scared of what will happen to her if she lets her feelings have their way, but, she’s scared to blow Jude off as well. Time is what’s needed and thankfully, with Jude on the injured list, it’s something they have in abundance. Their chemistry is undeniable, but watching their emotional bond grow was a treat too. Some might say Katie gave in too easily, but Jude did an excellent job of explaining himself, and she was partly to blame as she cut off all contact with him the way she did. A lot of misunderstandings could have been saved had she not done so. Jude is gorgeous, built and determined to win. He’s sweet and kind, and although he’d like to be the one in control, it’s Katie who holds the reins in their relationship, at least in the beginning. I loved reading this new series and I’m looking forward to book two, ‘Scoring Off The Ice’. One-Click this icy gem today and enjoy!.CeeCeeHoustonScore: 5/5
