Review:
Kelly Jamieson has a way of telling a story that makes you fall in love with the unlikely character. She takes what could be a very one-dimensional character and makes them so much more. The Wynn family is full of strong and diverse characters. I was so in love with Theo’s story I wasn’t sure that I would fall in love with Harrison. Harrison seems just to be skating by on his name and his talent. The oldest player on the farm team for the Condors, the NHL team his dad owns, he told by

Harrison is such a goofball. But he's sweet and I like how open he is to trying new things, how understanding he is of others, and how hard he tries. He can come on a little strong it seems, but it's because he's so goofy really. Arya is very hesitant about so many things because of her past. She gets folded into this awesome family pretty easily, and that's just what she needs.

There is a lot of the Wynn family to keep track of, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. And I'm kind of a sucker

I loved the interactions between Harry and Arya in Win Big and couldn't wait to read how the chemistry played out. It's amazing that you don't easily see past the exterior of what a person presents and how much that often hides. Both MCs are having internal struggles and each have their own set of hurdles and setbacks within For The Win. Who hasn't wanted to make their parents proud, but constantly felt like they'd failed? Who hasn't been scared, but know that they can be brave? The growth, ...more

Another enjoyable read by Kelly Jamieson. The dynamics in the Wynn family make for interesting reading, that’s for sure. Harrison’s issues are a little more complex that it seems. With all of the things going on in the family and professionally, it was the wrong time to start a relationship (especially with someone who is reluctant). But, sometimes, things are meant to be. Arya had good reason to to be leery of someone coming on a little too strong. In the end, they were perfect for each other, ...more

I did not expect to fall in love with Harrison Wynn - but I did. I loved this story and it is by far my favorite of this series by far. The Wynn family is...complicated. Really, really complicated - but what shines through beyond anything else is the love they have for each other. At the end of the day, they are a family and they put aside their differences to come together and just love each other.

In the Wynn family Harrison is practically an under-achiever. There is a ton of pressure on him

Arya appreciates her man's good nature, “you’re a good sport. I love to bowl and I’m having fun and you’re not mad that you lost.” I meet his eyes. “That impresses me.” Harrison has his priorities in order, “thank eff. Me too. I promise you food after.” I stand, hands beneath her ***. “Where’s your bedroom?” I liked this book, I loved Harrison.

Original review: A Novel Glimpse

Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

The Wynn Hockey series started out a little bumpy with the amount of family member characters to sort through, but I feel like it's finally hit its stride with the third and fourth book in the series. I really enjoyed reading For the Win. I loved how Harrison and Arya met and fell in love. Both had personal issues to work through. Harrison had family problems and his hockey career. Arya had a scary

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

I have enjoyed all of the books in Kelly Jamieson's Wynn Hockey series so far and For the Win was no different!

Harrison Wynn has always felt like he has a lot to live up to. Due to the family he was born into, that is true, but he tends to put more pressure on himself than he even realizes. While he's got a ton of talent, there is something that is holding him back. He's

Kelly Jamieson really knows how write a romance that combines the thrill of hockey with the thrill of a new relationship. I get butterflies from both aspects of her books, and this one is no different. In this fourth installment following the Wynn family and their hockey dynasty, the hockey player Harrison Wynn and his yoga teacher, Arya, are the focus.

As with the previous book in the series, my only complaint is that I feel a little lost or rushed in some of the scenes. The dialogue is

M/F Romance

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

I would recommend that you read these in order, as the family dynamics are a medium part of the story.

Harrison knows that he is a great player. But, he also knows that because of his family and their affinity for hockey, that he has to play up to his name. With his age creeping higher and his chances to join the ranks of the NHL, Harrison knows that he has

I loved the latest Wynn hockey novel from Kelly Jamieson. For the Win is a sweet romance with lots of steamy moments along with tons of hockey.

Harrison feels like he’s the underachiever of the Wynn clan. Sure, he’s a professional hockey player like most of his family, but he’s mostly been playing in the minor leagues. This time, when he’s called up to the major league Condors, his goal is to stay. Along with lots of skating and practice time, his sister convinces him to go to yoga class, where

The 4th book in the series, this is a standalone romance, although people from prior books make appearances (this is following the Wynn family after all!)

This book follows Harrison, a hockey player (although he's only temporarily in the NHL, covering for injured players. This plays into his slightly low self esteem and his need to prove himself) and Arya, a yoga instructor (who teaches yoga to the hockey team). Harrison is a goof (as he's described multiple times in the book.) I compare him to a

More of the Wynn Family!

Hockey player Harrison Wynn is the oldest player on his farm team when he was called up again for the Santa Monica Condors because of injuries to other players when he met yoga teacher Arya Ross at stand-up paddleboard yoga. Harrison didn’t make a good impression the first time he met her but when she was hired by the team to help improve their flexibility because they need all the help they could get to make the playoffs for the first time in years. Arya had moved to

The Wynn family has definitely captured my heart from the beginning but Harrison has stolen it! This is by far my favorite Wynn story and I keep falling further and further in love with them all!

Harrison and Aryas story picks up where book 3 left off which is great because Harrison definitely gets a taste of humble pie! (FYI you don’t have to read all the books or in any specific order but trust me you don’t want to miss a single Wynn) though their start is a little unconventional I loved

Loved this book! This is an engaging book that captured my interest from the first page and held it until the very last page. I was actually sorry when it ended and am already looking forward to the next book in the series.

Arya is a yoga instructor, and the woman that Harrison is fascinated with. He's so convinced that he's going to marry her that he rolls right over her concerns and assertively pursues her. However, Arya has a secret in her past that makes it difficult for her to trust a man or

This is the 4th book in this series but it can be read as a stand alone. This book is about Harrison and Arya. From previous books in this series I did not have a really great opinion of Harrison. In this book he totally redeemed himself. He was such a sweetheart and honestly I think he was just looking for someone to love him and to support him. He was so unsure of himself and of his talent. Arya had been through a really bad relationship. Now she was unsure of the decisions she was making and ...more

Harrison and Anya weren't my favorite of the Wynn Hockey couples but I still thoroughly enjoyed their story. I've enjoyed each book in this series.

I was a little surprised that Harrison's cutting up in Anya's class didn't put her off as much as you'd think. She's amused by him even when he's not taking things seriously. Her backstory is fairly tragic and yet she fights hard to overcome her fears and enjoy her time with Harrison. Harrison is a really good hockey player but something holds him

Another great story by this author...I really love the hockey romance novels, mainly because I understand the sport.
The Wynn’s are shaping up to be a great series to read...the issues that Bob Wynn is facing with Alzheimer’s hits close to home for me so at times it’s a little hard to read about because I feel what they are going through on a personal level.

Harrison and Arya in this one though...they both had demons to face but those demons shaped them both into the people they turned out to be.

I received a copy this story from NetGalley for a honest review.

For the Win by Kelly Jamieson was such a lovely story about two people who enrich each others lives. At first I wasn't sure I would like Harrison because he comes across as a goofball and I don't find that attractive. But Harrison showed himself to be so much more that I couldn't help but fall in love with him. Arya has been through so much in the past couple of years but the strength she shows was very inspiring. These two bring

Loving the Wynns! Wins? I really did love Harrison and Arya's journey, with so much emotion and reality. The family drama, the playoffs, Arya's background, even Harrison's unknown fears all came into play and I was in deep. Their relationship had a few hills to climb, mistakes were made, but though it all they were learning, moving forward for themselves and each other. All the emotions came out in this relationship, loved the funny bits, teared up at times and the sexy times were--Oh So Sexy!

Ms Jamieson’s books are always funny, flirty, and steamy ... but I found myself crying In this book. My mother had Alzheimers and the way that Bob Wynn acted really hit close to home ... so I found this book to be very emotional. Ok ... enough of that!

Arya was such a breath of fresh air! Even though she had a horrific experience, she came through the other side and braver for it. Harrison was such a goof ball, but he said right from the start that Arya was his future wife. This

I love this series and have been lucky enough to review them before they got released.
This one to me ahas a different feel to it. Almost like the author took a nice break. It doesn’t make it bad in fact I loved it. It had a heavy back topic that draws you into protective mode. Arya is awesome and has been through some major crap. It makes her unsure of herself and others around her. I can’t say I wouldn’t act the same in her shoes. The family drama from the other books continues here, that will

Another winning book of the hockey royalty, The Wynn family. This one centers on Harrison Wynn, who feels he is never quite good enough. Harrison has set his sights on yoga instructor Arya and is determined to win her over.
I loved Harrison’s determination not only for Arya, but his goal of winning a spot in his family’s team, being a true NHL player.
Arya has been through a lot, including moving to California to begin a new life and finds herself being drawn to Harrison and this obviously scares

Zen AF. I think I yelled at Arya and Harrison a little much to keep that title, but it brought a whole new level to reading for me. I felt the drama of the book could have been avoided with communication and even though it seemed like a simple resolve it wasn’t. With 10% left in the book I was starting to wonder if this was going to be a romance that turned into each person moving on and being happy single. I’m glad to know that didn’t happen, it turned into a HEA. I should have had more faith
