Two love-matches made.
One to go.
Even though two of his best friends have settled down, Wes Lancaster is determined not to get sucked into some siren’s web. As owner of the professional football team the New York Mavericks and wildly successful BAD restaurant, his lifestyle is full as it is.
Well, it was, until Winnie Winslow, the new, sexy, stiletto-wearing Team Physician trash-talks him in the locker room without batting an eye.
Now he can’t stop himself from wanting her.
The only girl in her parents’ brood of five, she’s as outspoken as she is beautiful and the kind of woman who holds her own—and then some.
Always competitive at heart, if he’s going all in for love…
Wes sure as hell wants a Win-Win.
Prepare to get a little dirty because this one might go into overtime.

#2 Banking the Billionaire
#2.5 Banking Her
#3 Scoring the Billionaire
After finishing Banking Her (Billionaire Bad Boys, #2.5) I had to immediately start Scoring the Billionaire. I really, really wanted to know what was going to end up happening between self-professed ladies man Wes and single mom Winnie.
Scoring the Billionaire wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. It didn’t have the same rom-com feeling as the rest of the series. There was still Max Monroe’s great writing, over the top humor and super sexiness, but it had a more serious feel to it. Wes and Winnie had more at stake in this novel than the characters in the other novels.
Wes has been kind of mystery to me in this series. I knew he was a wealthy ladies man who owned a football team and restaurant, but I had no clue what made him tick. His story went a lot deeper than I expected. Wes had some real commitment issues and getting to know why showed what a decent guy he truly was. Even though I wanted to kill him at times, I loved him. Winnie was an amazing woman. She took the toughest parts of her life and made them the brightest. I empathized with her the entire time and understood her hesitation to have faith in a relationship with Wes.
Together, Wes and Winnie were one hot tamale. Their story may have been heavier than Georgie and Kline’s or Cassie and Thatch’s, but it was just as sensual. Every time they were in the same room I was fanning myself. Their connections was so intense!
I loved Wes and Winnie, but my favorite part of this story was Lexi. I loved her so much! She was just so special. Her character brought so many amazing aspects to Scoring the Billionaire. She made me have faith in Wes when I didn’t want to. She made me love Winnie even more. Lexi completely stole the show!
Even though Scoring the Billionaire wasn’t quite the rom-com the rest of the series was, I still absolutely loved it. I cannot wait to read the last novella in the series, Scoring Her. I’m looking forward to seeing how Max Monroe finishes off this amazing series. Plus, I want more Wes, Winnie, Georgie, Kline, Cassie and Thatch!
