Can a hockey hunk teach a yoga instructor to be more flexible? “Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Even though I’m the oldest player on the farm team, I’m playing my heart out this year to prove that I have what it takes to compete in the NHL.
Everyone expects me to live up to my dying hockey hero dad’s legacy, but my chances are receding every season.
What I need is to focus, but the team’s new yoga instructor is a major distraction; I’ve had my eye on her from the first time we met.
Except she’s not interested—okay, maybe actively disinterested—since I accidentally dumped her into the ocean during our paddleboard yoga class.
How can I prove to her—and to the NHL—that I’m worth taking a chance on?
Men are the last thing I need in my life.
Yoga is my priority; it helps me center myself and heal my soul.
But I can’t turn down the once-in-a-lifetime offer to be the personal yoga instructor for the local hockey team.
Sure, there are some cute players—including Harrison Wynn, who seemingly won’t take no for an answer, and whose boyish smile and sexy charm are hard to resist.
He seems genuine, and I wonder . . .
Can I put my past behind me to start a future with him?

I need a family tree for reference.
Absolutely love this series! Full of family love & drama that comes with a family with this many branches on the tree. Before reading any of the books I find myself needing to map out the family tree for reference! There are so many family members with different jobs, teams and marriages that I need something to reference.
Good next book in the series
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 golden retriever- sweet, soft and can maybe be tough if the situation warrants it, but rarely does. Definitely not an "alpha" character. Arya has a past that Harrison needs to overcome in order to achieve their HEA.
One thing about this book is the author spent a lot of time on details. The songs being played in the yoga class, the yoga poses, the ice cream flavors, the description of the flowers, the hockey plays and it goes on. I don't remember her doing this for the other books in the series. As a result, the book was a little slow. However, I did like the characters, both this couple as well as past couples. It was a good book but ambles a bit.
Thanks to NetGalley for the fun read!
For the Win was definitely a winning read.
I love Kelly Jamieson's writing, and I've come to expect a lot from her books—I expect them to make me feel good, to make me smile and laugh, to tug at the heart a little, to show interesting family and friend dynamics, and, of course, to make my temperature rise. This book does all of that, and it does it so, so well.
Harrison and Arya are an absolute delight. They just seem to work together, and I love how everything feels easy and lighthearted while still have a vein of depth that adds to the overall tension of the book. Between Harrison's family woes and Arya's troubling past, they have their own hurdles to overcome, and yet they do it in a way that means it's impossible not to root for them.
For the Win is another exceptional(ly swoony) installment in the Wynn Hockey series, and I'm excited for Jackson's book next!
