Official Blurb: 

Opposites really do attract* as a sassy salesgirl turns a pro athlete’s life upside down in this supercharged standalone novel of seduction from the author of Bossed.

Kelsey: My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.

Matt: After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.

*And sexy times ensue—for mature audiences.

Scored is my second Sloane Howell novel, and it was an out of the park, bases loaded, bottom of the ninth home run.  Before I picked up this book, Ethan, from Bossed, was my star player by Sloane, but Matt just replaced him. Sorry, Ethan. Back to the minors for you. Kidding. Or am I?

Baseball innuendos aside, Scored is brilliant. Matt’s alpha male, me Tarzan, you Jane, attitude from the last book is completely softened when it comes to Kelsey.  She’s been hurt in the past, and just so happens to be the best friend of his agent/best friend’s future wife.  If that doesn’t spell trouble, I don’t know what else could.  I may be mistaken, but I’m almost positive that there are relationship rules in place for this kind of things. Tisk tisk tisk. Matt. You rule breaker, you.

Anyway… back to the review. Every time I mention that man’s name, my mind trails off to his oral skills.  I will let you do with that as you wish. *innocent smile*

Scored is by far one of my favorite books of 2017.  It has everything that I loved with a sports twist. While I’m not exactly a baseball fan, I really enjoyed this book.  It was a quick, fast-paced, dirty read that will be sure to delight fans and readers. 

Though I do have to admit that my husband is a fan of the Evil Empire. Sorry, Sloane.
