I don’t want anything to do with my crazy family’s drama, which I’ve been watching unfold from a distance over the last year, but now my grandfather has Alzheimer’s and I feel I need to at least make a quick visit to see him. My hockey season’s over, all I have to do is get through my teammate Steve’s wedding, and then I’m on a plane to Los Angeles to do my family duty. After that, I’ll head home to Manitoba for some summer R&R at the family lake cottage.
Nobody’s expecting what happens at my wedding, which becomes pandemonium. I need to get out of there. Fast. Who do I turn to? Jackson Wynn, one my fiancé’s teammates. He’s been a friend to me since I met Steve. For one night, we hide out in his condo, but he’s leaving in the morning for California. I want to go with him.
I can’t take Steve’s fiancée with me to California. He’s going to flip shit over this. But the lying cheating bastard kind of deserves it, and I’ve always had a soft spot for Molly. Or maybe not so soft…because she’s not only sweet and kind, she’s hot as hell. This is a bad idea for so many reasons, and I sure as hell don’t need more drama in my life, but I can’t say no to her.
On this nutso trip, neither of us expect Molly to bond with my bonkers family…especially my poor, confused grandpa. And neither of us expect to bond with each other…
Not knowing that Game Changer was part of the Wynn Hockey Series, it didn’t bother me at all. The story is sweet and funny and although the other Wynn family members where unknown to me, it is easy to follow. Jackson is keeping his distance from his crazy Wynn family, but his grandfather’s alzheimer’s forces him to go back home to see if he can help his grandfather settle. But en route, he has to stop at the wedding of one of his teammates. Although Jackson isn’t close to Steve, his hockey teammate, he has become good friends with his fiancee Molly. They even teamed up on some pubquiz nights, because Steve wasn’t into quizzes at all.
What Jackson didn’t expect, was Molly walking out of the wedding, because she found out that Steve cheated on her. And now she begs him to take her away until everything cools down.
So, with Molly in tow, Jackson heads to California, to his family. What he didn’t count on, was Molly to become fast friends with his grandfather and his family. But the bro-code forbids him to go after Molly.
Confused and scared, both don’t know what to do? But what if they realize this event could be a game changer for both of them? Four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
