Publisher's Summary

Lainey Lukas has sacrificed everything - sleep, family, carbs, a life - to earn her spot as the top player and captain of the Seattle Falcons women's soccer team. She's determined to lead her team to a national championship and finally earn the sport the respect it deserves, and nothing will throw her off her game. When Lainey's hero Gabe Havelak, star of the Seattle Surge, crashes her team's first press conference - making the Falcons look like a joke to the local media and humiliating Lainey in the process - she's hell-bent on revenge.
Charming, confident Gabe is practically a god to Seattle soccer fans, but he doesn't mind a little friendly competition from tough-as-nails Lainey, with her top-notch athletic skills, her mile-long legs, and her girl-next-door freckles. But when he learns the Falcons are booting the Surge from their coveted practice space to the notoriously cursed Cricket Field, those warm feelings give way to crippling superstition. With his contract up for renewal and his 34th birthday just weeks away, Gabe will risk anything to protect his position with the Surge.
Contains mature themes.

I hate 3rd person

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Nope.. It dragged on and on. Lannie's insecurities drove me nuts


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I have no clue.. Can't finish this.. it puts me to sleep


How could the performance have been better?

First the narration shouldn't have been in 3rd person.. that made it difficult to follow the story at times and seriously irritating.. I can't stand 3rd person narration


Was For the Win worth the listening time?

Nope..


Any additional comments?

I would have enjoyed this story a little more had it not been in 3rd person. I would have tolerated Lannie's crazy but I just couldn't with the reading of this..
