A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a brand new standalone sports romance written in dual POV!

MY REVIEW:

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

I’ve read a ton of Lauren Blakely’s contemporary romances over the past year or so, and they were all beginning to blend together to me. If you’ve read cocky alpha male character, you’ve read them all, right? Well, not really, but I was starting to feel that way about her books. I hated that because I love, love, love Lauren Blakely’s writing and humor. She’s one of my go-to writers for romantic comedies. I was really curious to how I was going to feel about Jones, the hero of Most Likely to Score. I liked what I got to know of him in Most Valuable Playboy, so I was hoping he was going to break the mold and get me back on my Lauren Blakely kick.

Jones Bennett totally did! That guy was so much fun! He was the traditional cocky football stud, but he had so much heart. His love for his family and animals was so cool. So was his respect for Jillian and her job. Jones was an all around good guy who knew what mattered in life. His point of view was so much fun to read!

I can’t leave out Jillian. I’m so happy we got her side of the story in Most Likely to Score. Some of Blakely’s heroines don’t get to share their thoughts, and I’m so thankful Jillian got to share hers. She was a little bit uptight, but it was all about focus for her. Jillian knew what she wanted out of life, and she went for it. Her determination was admirable — even when she broke her own rules for a certain someone. My most favorite thing about her, though, was her adoption story. She was adopted as a baby from China. That really hit home with me because I had several friends growing up who were adopted as babies from Asian countries. I’ve heard so much about their experiences, and it was fun finding those experiences in a book character.

Jillian and Jones’ love affair was really cute. They both had reasons to stay away from each other, but I loved that they didn’t. I adored their attraction and then their connection. There were so many sweet moments between the two of them. They were so perfect for each other. I loved how their relationship and story worked out.

Most Likely to Score is my newest favorite Lauren Blakely book. I hope she continues to write more sports romances (Can I get one for Jillian and Jones’ friends, please?). I would love to see this two book series become an even longer one.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

  1. Ooh! An Asian heroine! I love the sound of that. But also that hero sounds delightful. I don’t always love cocky bad boy heroes, but if they have a soft heart? I’m a total goner. I’ve only read one or two books by her, but I’ve liked them, so I’ll give this a try!
    Great review! 🙂

    • Somehow this comment got sent to my trash? Weird! Sorry for the late response! Yes, you should give this one a try. It was delightful! 🙂 And thank you!
