Synopsis: What started out as a joke— seduce Coach Wilder—soon became a goal she had to score. 

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.

• A face that makes girls weep – check. 
• Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) – check. 
• Enough confidence to shift the earth’s gravitational pull – double check.

Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits . Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. “Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you’ll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.”) But that just makes him all the more enticing…Besides, Kinsley's already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished.

Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term “team bonding.” 

A fun & sexy New Adult Romance (age 17+)

What I Thought:

Scoring Wilder has been on my radar from the moment I first saw it's cover and read the synopsis months ago.  I'm a big fan of the game, but not a big fan of most taboo relationships, so I was a little uncertain about how I would feel about the story.  However reading it allayed all my fears.  I do think the blurb is a little misleading.  It makes it seem like Kinsley is trying to play with Liam's emotions to win a game when that's just not true.

I wasn't expecting to laugh as much as I did while reading this book.  There were moments that had me in stitches.  The book was emotional, but not in the teary way you're probably thinking.  I say emotional because there were some, "Awww..," moments and others where I was just plain pissed off. So emotional in a way a lot of different emotions were engaged. I really liked Liam and Kinsley and while I did want them to be together, I didn't want it to be at the expense of anyone's dreams or career.  

The book is fast paced and you won't be able to put it down.  I loved how the story equally focused on Kinsley's soccer dreams and the possible relationship between her and Liam.  I do wish there had been more about the actual achieving of said dreams, but maybe Ms. Grey will appease her fans by writing a novella about them.  I can only hope, right?  I would love to see more of Liam and Kinsley in the future.  

My first R.S. Grey novel was wonderful.  I'm now really eager to check out her back list and see if her other books will resonate with me the same way Scoring Wilder did.  If you're in the mood for a great story, lots of laughs, and some great chemistry between the main characters, I'd strongly suggest you read this book.
