Publisher's Summary

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.  

Contains mature themes.

Beautiful and Passionate Listen - Loved it!

I absolutely loved this story. Kandi Steiner has done it again with a beautiful story of Second Chances and self discovery. This story stole my heart and had me rooting for a happily ever after.
I listened to this on audiobook and Nelson Hobbs was fantastic in his portrayal of Zach, she couldn’t have picked a better person to play this part. And Virginia Rose was the perfect compliment.
A must listen!!!

The Wrong FMC

Okay I want to start by saying that I have thus far enjoyed every book I’ve listened to from Kandi. I love her writing and the reasons I don’t like this book are particular for my own personal preferences. I definitely don’t think this is a bad book it’s just the wrong book for me.

Now that I got that out of the way, my issues with this book stem entirely from the FMC, Gemma. Gemma was planning to divorce her husband as she found out about his infidelity and before she can he announces he has terminal cancer. She decides to honor her vows and stays with him through his final days. But after that heartbreak she decides that she’s closing her heart for good now.

Before her husband's death she brought season tickets to the Bears. Her BF hatches a plan for her to take a new guy to every home game, protecting her heart but also letting her have fun. The bartender overhears her plans and volunteers to be her practice date.

Zach doesn’t know what it is about Gemma, but he wants more than one practice date and despite her dropping him like it’s hot after the first night he’s not giving her up without a fight no matter how many times she hurts him.

Gemma is everything I dislike in a female main character. She’s selfish, childish, neurotic to the point of being annoying, and a very poor communicator. People get hurt. That’s life. Most people pick up the pieces and carry on. Not Gemma though. She decides to internalize her only hardship in life and wear it like armor against ever having joy again. She continually hurts those around her without thought for their feelings especially Zach. All this could have been forgivable with character growth, but she stays that way pretty much until the very end of the book.

Zach is the only thing that kept me invested in this book. There’s definitely an instalove vibe from his end but he’s essentially the perfect book boyfriend. He’s stubborn, determined, loyal and creative as he tried to show Gemma that he’s the one for her. I honestly from the bottom of my heart believe he could do better but maybe that’s because I’m jealous 😂

As I said before I do not think this is a bad book, but it just didn’t jive with my personal preferences so if you’re like me and you’re team strong FMC I don’t think you’ll enjoy this one.

I am excited to read Belle’s book whoever because she is giving me the vibes I live for.

The Wrong Book

This was an audible book for me and the narrators did a very good job. I usually enjoy this author‘s books but this one I did not at all. Gemma was so annoying that I wanted Zach to dump her and move on. The things she said and did we’re not OK. Zach did all the work and all the fighting while Gemma just sat back and whined About everything. I had hoped that her character would grow be on the predictable but she never fought for anything except for the one time she showed up at his house at the very end. Zach proved himself over and over and that got to be ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and skip this book.

Meh

These characters were completely relatable. He's an average guy and she's an average girl. No billionaires or heiresses. Gemma was a widow to a cheating bastard and Zach is a bartender who sacrificed his future for his family and lost his love.
I wanted more from her and more from him. I wanted her to let her ex mother in law know about her son and I also wonder if the girl was lied to too. Was she crying at the funeral for her lost love or that she too gave her heart to a cheating bastard. I feel like this book is unfinished. The other woman needs her own story.
