Ahh… The wonderful, emotional drama…

I love a story I can get lost in and Jake and Whitney had me from their first encounter. And what a meeting it was! Little did either of them know that the secrets each carried were landmines just waiting to be triggered. The question was, would they – and their relationship – survive the fallout? I couldn’t wait to find out…

Whitney and Jake connected in a crazy whirlwind that I thought would set the pace for their courtship but I was so wrong. Life, secrets a

Winning Whitney is story of Jake the captain of The Alaska Blizzards, we have met him in previous books, but this can still be read as a standalone. Whitney is staying with Hayley and Kane looking after their twins.
Whitney is absolutely gobsmacked when a man she spent a hot few days with in Boston four years previously walks into Hailey’s house with Kane. Whitney realizes Jake is Jackson who she has never forgotten. Jake can’t believe it’s  his found the woman

Wow! What a fantastic book that had me hooked from page one. I love the morals that Whitney insisted on when Jake ( Jackson) hasn’t finalized his divorce. Stayed on edge, how much Jake has to put up with Addy before getting divorced? What happened in Whitney’s past? What’s she hiding? I cried when Jackson feels hurt by her. What will she decide to do? I devoured this book in hours, it’s that good, couldn’t put it down. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.

Winning Whitney is book 3 in the Alaska Blizzard series by Kat Mizera. I have been dying to read Whitney's book since been introduced to her in book 2 "HOLDING HAILEY" where Kane and Hailey helped rescue Whitney from a stalker in Boston. Now in book 3, Whitney has relocated to Alaska and is working as a nanny for Hailey and Kane, helping take care of their newborn twins. She had the shock of her life when she runs into the man she had a 1-night stand with in Boston 4 years before and has never f ...more
Now this is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. It took some adjusting with the background of the characters but overall I enjoyed the book. I would say up until 60% the book dragged along. After 60% the author really threw you curveballs right and left and your head was spinning with everything happening. I mean Whitney wanted full and complete honestly with Jack but wasn’t willing to give him her truth, ugh hypocritical much? She made a big deal about being truthful and hone ...more

I loved being back with the Blizzard gang again. Whitney isn’t my favorite character in these stories so far, but I enjoyed the story. I love Jake, the captain of the Blizzards. He’s had a rough marriage, and during a separation with his wife meets Whitney. Whitney is trying to find herself away from her famous family, and once she finds out that Jake is still technically married, she is not wanting to be the other woman.

Another Story that you will not put down, Winning Whitney is a big Winner in my book! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic's Read

Jake and Whitney's love is like coming home. After a one night stand and not seeing each other for four years these two seem like two magnets drawn to each other. It was only a matter of time before these two fell for each other. You are going to enjoy this story so much.

Well I didn't see this one coming! Kat Mizera kept me on the edge of my seat with this one. I was really afraid there was going to be a not so happy ending as she really kept me guessing. It was a hot steamy Hockey romance story with a bit of a mystery running through it. I loved the story of Jake and Whitney, Kat Mizera spun her web of love and lies and I became entangled. If you have been following this series, you will want to jump into Winning Whitney as soon as possible.

I received a review copy of the book before release for an honest review.

This is book 3 in the series and it was beyond wonderful. It stars Jake/Jack, the hockey team Captain of an Alaskan team and Whitney who is best friends with Jake's friends. Her past is very mysterious but she comes to town to help out her best friend when she has twins.

Jake/Jack met Whitney four years before and they had some great times until he told her he was married. (he was in middle of a divorce). Now four years late

Another spectacular sports romance by Kat Mizera. A quick fast pace read. A story about wrong timing and second chances. Winning Whitney is the third book in the Alaska Blizzard series, it can be read as a stand alone but I do recommend you read the entire series.

Whitney and Jake met by chance, they shared an unforgettable night and an intense connection. But the timing wasn’t right. Jake wasn’t in a place to see or date anyone, not until his divorce was final. His focus was on being the best c

The first time Jake Carruthers met Whitney Sommers neither one of them thought it would lead to an unforgettable tryst and they never expected to see each other again. Fast forward four years and suddenly they find themselves face to face in Anchorage, Alaska.

They met 4 ago, spent less than 48 hours together which finished when Jack revealed a secret with her, she left and neither thought they would see each other ever again even though they never forgot their time together. Now much to both of their surprise they meet again and have to work out if they can even be friends and act normal around each other.

Regardless whether you love hockey or not, Winning Whitney is a story you must read. Kat Mizera knows how to work her characters right into your heart, and that's exactly what she did with Jake and Whitney. These two were seriously meant to be together and it was so obvious from the sparks that happened when they were together.

I love everything Kat Mizera writes and have especially enjoyed reading her Alaska Blizzards hockey series. Each book in the series is about a different hockey player on the Alaska Blizzards. Her newest book, Winning Whitney, is the third installment and it is a smoothly written, engaging story. It is a second chance romance, which is one of my favorite genres.

I simply loved this book. I've been waiting for Jake's story and now, here it is. I love every second of it. I'm a sucker when it comes to a story by Kat Mizera.

I love this series and it just keeps on getting better. It can be read as a stand alone but you get so much more background and feels if you start at the beginning. I also love that we get true storylines with the secondary characters, I can't wait to see where that certain couple is headed! But about this story. Oh the emotions! I felt so bad for both of them. Whitney did the right thing I think, but I understand how Jake felt. I was still mad at Jake for how he reacted 4 years ago. Should have ...more
