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 a stand-alone, angsty, enemies-to-lovers sports romance.

Steiner has not let me down yet! This book was angsty, emotional, and oh so romantic. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be.
I have to start this review with talking about about things leading man. Zach was a unique character in a few ways. First, this was a guy fell first novel. Second, Zach was very in touch with his emotions and not ashamed about it. He was a sensitive man and it didn’t make him weaker or lesser than. In fact, I loved him that much more for it! Third, he was so charming! I feel like in many novels now we don’t get a lot of charm. We get grumpy or combative and don’t get me wrong, I love all those tropes, but the charm had me in a chokehold. Zach was sweet and kind, but also pushed and challenged Gemma in the best way. I can’t say enough about how great he was.
This book in general was also very emotional. Gemma is working to move on from her past throughout the whole book so we get a lot of vulnerable moments from her. Additionally, her story in general is a gut-wrenching one. I teared up multiple times as different things came up or she had flashbacks. Steiner really did a great job of balancing out the fun, sports parts with this emotional bit.
Overall, I loved this book and am sold on any future books of Steiners. Don’t be surprised from any further 5-star reviews I give her books.
