Book Review: THE WRONG GAME by Kandi Steiner
He can't win if he's playing The Wrong Game
The Wrong Game, an all-new angsty, emotional and fun sports romance from Kandi Steiner, the bestselling author of A Love Letter to Whiskey, is LIVE!
Two season tickets.
One genius idea.
Zero interest in a relationship.
The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other.
I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.
Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.
He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.
But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.
One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.
He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.
Kandi Steiner once again delivers a trademark heartfelt and emotional story. I know I’ll get a story that will place a smile on my face, but heavens, Steiner will make me work for it.
THE WRONG GAME was wonderful. Gemma Mancini and Zach Bowen are great characters. The attraction between them is intense but there’s also this deeper, underlying connection that scares them, particularly Gemma, because it means placing their trust and faith in one another; something that’s hard to do given the loss and betrayal they have each faced in their lives.
As difficult as it was at times, I enjoyed Gemma and Zach’s journey. I loved the messages that even with a strong attraction, a relationship does take time and commitment, and for someone like Gemma, who plans her life to the nth degree, that it’s OK to not have all the answers at the start.
Set against a football background, fans of sports romance novels will enjoy this. There is plenty of on field action, as well as many funny moments in the stadium stands as Gemma, a diehard fan, takes her dates to games. Often sports romances involve a player but this one is definitely a tribute to sports fans.
I enjoyed the secondary characters, especially Gemma’s BFF Belle. She is the poster child for #bffgoals. She’s supportive, she’s outrageous, she knows when to listen and when to push you into doing things for your own good.
THE WRONG GAME is the right balance of sweet, sexy, funny and emotional.

About the Author:
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
