Jackson Wynn

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.

Molly Flynn
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 fiancĂ©’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 fiancĂ©e 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

I have to admit, I love Kelly Jamieson's hockey books, but I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a lot of hockey in this one! It does take place in the off-season and deals more with Jackson and contract stuff so I kind of understood it. I still liked this one a lot and it was a great addition to the Wynn Hockey series.

I think you can read this as a standalone, but I think having read the other books a lot of the references make more sense and get more of a feel for the family stuff. I did love Jackson trying to explain his insane family to Molly. She seemed so amused by it all. I also like that we got more about his dad. I was kinda wondering if he was gonna get his own book. Look, I really want some older coach hockey books. 

This book could have gotten really messy with Jackson still having to play with Molly's ex, but I did like that there was a maturity there. I felt so bad for Molly in the beginning of this book! I did love that her relationship with Jackson started strictly as friends and there was a line neither of them crossed. I loved that they were so into trivia. I suck at trivia, but it was amusing to see them take everyone down and have that connection.

I'm not sure if there are going to be any more books in this series, I think there are a couple Wynns Kelly could write about. I would 100% read them.
