The Wrong Game was everything I had hoped it to be and more. It was funny. It was sweet. And it was a little heartbreaking at times.
The Wrong Game tells the story of Gemma who has purchased season tickets to every Bears game for her and her husband. However, due to unfortunate and tragic circumstances her husband, excuse me- ex-husband is unable to attend. That is until Zach Brown offers to fill in and be her practice rule for dating.
Reading this book was an enjoyable experience, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the characters.
Both Gemma and Zach were extremely likable, complex characters. The chemistry between them was amazing. There’s nothing better than a banter between two people who deserve to be together.
It was interesting to see both Gemma and Zach develop as the story processed. Their story never felt rushed or overdramatic. It felt realistic. Especially, Gemma’s fears. It was understandable that she would be hesitant. Her husband was terrible.
Another positive about this book was that not only was the romance relationship important, it really stressed the importance of the main characters’ relationships with the supporting characters. For example, Zach’s relationship with his family and Doc. Also, Gemma’s relationship with her best friend, Belle, and her grandfather. All the relationships in the book were well developed and all characters benefitted from them.
I would also like to point out that Belle was the funniest person in the book. Although she was only a supporting character, she shined and was a scene stealer. She was laugh out loud funny and I would love to have a book based solely on her and her romance adventures.
The Wrong Game has all the right ingredients. It’s funny. It’s heartfelt and it has an amazing love story.
