Playing to Win by Lisa B. Kamps


Jason Emory has one motto: play hard, love hard… and win at all costs. It doesn't matter if he's on the ice or playing the field, his only goal is to win. For a life goal, it sounds pretty good. So why does he feel like he's drifting aimlessly instead of having the world at his feet? At least, that's what it feels like until one hot night with a beautiful stranger who seems oddly familiar—a stranger he can't forget.

Megan Bradley loves working at her parents' bar. Why shouldn't she, when that gives her a chance to see her long-time crush up close and personal? Not that Jason knows who she is. Why would he, when she's nothing more than a modern day ugly duckling swimming in a sea of glittering swans? At least, until her best friend hatches a plan for an extreme makeover.

All she wants is one night to never forget—but sometimes getting what you want isn't what you need. Can she walk away from the connection that should have never happened? And what happens when it's time to face the truth—especially when she realizes that one sexy hockey player will stop at nothing when it comes to winning?

This was a sweet story. Megan is working at her parents' bar – she loves working there. She has friends and gets yummy eye candy on a regular basis because of the hockey guys that frequent their bar. She has had a crush on Jason for as long as he started coming into the bar. But, she knows that despite waiting on them, he never sees her. He looks right past her and to the model-type women who throw themselves at him.

Jason is a hockey player. However, he is also incredibly unobservant. He plays, hangs out with his friends, and that's about it. Even though he never is hurting for female company, he doesn't really see the women he's with. His friends are somewhat worried about him, but they keep their worries to themselves until it becomes an issue.

What follows is a game of seduction, love, and hurt. This was more about a story of two people learning what's important to them and going for it. The characters have a great chemistry and despite the loyalty that Jason's fellow teammates have to him, there are also some great guys who have loyalties to Megan as well.

Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the best-selling series The Baltimore Banners, featuring "hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players" (USA Today), on and off the ice. Her firefighter series, Firehouse Fourteen, features hot and heroic firefighters who put more than their lives on the line. Her newest hockey series, The York Bombers, launches with Playing the Game in February, 2017.

In a previous life, she worked as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department then did a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally served as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.

Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda out of the house), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count. When she's not busy writing or chasing animals, she's cheering loudly for her favorite hockey team, the Washington Capitals—or going through withdrawal and waiting for October to roll back around!
