The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner
Release Date: October 18, 2018
Genre: New Adult
Synopsis: From the bestselling author of A Love Letter to Whiskey and the What He Doesn’t Know Duet comes an angsty, emotional, and fun sports romance.
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.

The Wrong Game is the newest book by Kandi Steiner who is best known for “emotional rollercoaster” stories. Gemma Mancini is a woman focused on deadlines, plans, lists, and goals. So what does she do when she suspects that her husband, Carlos, is cheating? She makes a checklist and once each item has been checked off proving his infidelity including seeing him with the other woman, Gemma makes a plan to confront him. Carlos didn’t follow Gemma’s plan because he spoke first and everything changed. Her cheating husband had cancer…the kind that would end his life. Gemma told him that she loved him and would stay by his side, never confronting him about the affair, until the day he died just four short weeks later. And on the day of his funeral, Gemma watched a younger and prettier girl mourn Carlos from the back row of the church.
Zach Bowen tends bar in a busy Chicago bar not far from Soldier Field. One night his world is rocked when the beautiful Gemma walks into the bar after a Bears game. He overhears Gemma’s best friend creating an online dating profile for Gemma. “Season pass holder looking for a cool, DTF, guy to use my other ticket at home games.” What former football player and Chicago Bears fan could resist that? Sensing Gemma’s nervousness, Zach offers to be her practice run. Gemma agrees to go the game with Mr. Dark, Tall, and Fun BUT he had to follow Gemma’s rules. One night. One game. Will either of them be able to walk away after just one night? Will Zach be able to heal Gemma’s broken heart and help her learn that not all men are untrustworthy?
Let’s talk about this emotional rollercoaster that Kandi Steiner has taken me on. The characters in “The Wrong Game” are so real, flawed, and scarred that it was easy to connect to them. Carlos Mancini is a jerk and so easy to hate. I hated him even more after Gemma reads the letters that his mother finds and gives to Gemma. Yes, I said letters. One for Gemma and one for Brielle. Zach is a down-to-earth, hard-working man who has made sacrifices for his family and is willing to put in the hard work in order to make Gemma trust him. He does the one thing that no other man, especially the jerk – Carlos, has never done…he fights for Gemma and boy does he have to fight for her. It would be easy to say “oh poor Gemma” but that’s not what she wants. Gemma wants to be strong, independent, and to watch her Chicago Bears win! Gemma also desperately wants to put away her broken heart and thinks the easiest way to do so is to stop feeling. Zach makes her feel and that scares Gemma to death. I stayed up way too late reading this book and hated to put it down. This is the first Kandi Steiner book that I have read. If all of them are written like “The Wrong Game,” then I will be a fan for life. I have no choice but to give this book 5 out of 5 propellers! Buy it today! I promise that you won’t regret it.
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.
