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!
I love when Lauren Blakely writes in dual POV! Yes, she writes hot, funny and swoonworthy men amazingly well (ok, who are we kidding? She's the queen of male POV romances, hands down) but she also writes sharp, smart, sexy women just as well. For me, having Jillian's POV in this book was like the extra point after a touchdown to win the Super Bowl...or the icing on the cake.
Jillian was so much fun to learn about. I loved her focus on her work, her passion for it. She's definitely smart and determined to pave her way in life. Was she attracted to Jones? Absolutely. Was she resolved not to do anything about said attraction? Yes. So I loved getting to see her off kilter just a bit with her feelings when she was with him. All the little things that made Jillian tick-from pomelos to cherry earrings-were interesting to read about. This is a character I'd be friends with...and not just because she has a connection to a football team.
Jones seems like such a stereotypical football player on the surface...for all of two seconds. There's so much more to this man. He's funny, smart, sweet and sexy. Holy hell is he sexy! He has a strong work ethic, is a family oriented man and did I mention he was sexy? He has such determination and heart-you can't help but fall in love with him. He is absolutely one of my favorite Blakely book boyfriends.
The attraction these two have for each other is palpable right from the start of this book. Their banter suits them both to a T and had me grinning. I was biting my lip as the tension rose between them. Their first kiss? Off the charts hot. I was glad to have a backup kindle because the sexy times between these two definitely melted my first one.
That being said, there's so much more than just great sex between these two-it's seeing all the other aspects of their relationship and lives that make this book special. This is something that this author excels at; allowing readers to see more of a couple than just their bedroom compatibility. Seeing what makes these two who they are and who they can help each other be is truly special. I liked that they got to see different sides of each other and that they truly GOT who the other person was. Their views on luck were mentioned more than once and really got me thinking. These two are definitely lucky in the love department :)
The supporting characters here were fun to read about. They add to the story and support Jones and Jillian without overwhelming them. I loved Jones's family (and could relate to them a bit) and I absolutely adored Jillian's backstory. There's little references to characters in other books-which I always love finding-but again, nothing that takes away from Jones and Jillian.
The pacing of this book was spot on. The plot was unique and believable. The writing was fun, sweet and sexy. Lauren Blakely always writes with heart, heat and humor and Most Likely To Score definitely has all of those. This is a book I will go back and read again. I highly recommend it and would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
At this point, writing a review of a Lauren Blakely title and stating that I loved it is, well, a little anticlimactic. We all know I loved it, because she is a fabulous writer who writes the sex, the romance, the characters, the supporting characters, and the scenes perfectly. When you have an author who hits perfection as consistently as Lauren Blakely, you know you are going to love everything you read by her.
So, shockingly, I know, I loved Jones and Jillian's story. For all the reasons, but because I didn't want to put it down. Because I pretended to take a nap at my parent's house over Christmas weekend because I wanted to finish the book. Because I loved the adoption story of Jillian and loved that she is Chinese but it isn't a "thing" it is just who she is, and she is proud of it. I loved the writing, the flow of the story, the development of the romance, the relationship with other characters.
I loved this book.
I loved Jones and how hard he struggled to do the right thing, to not risk Jillian's reputation when all he really wanted was her. And, I laughed with him, and maybe a little at him, when he finally realized how much she really did mean to him.
I recommend this title.

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?
MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!
