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+) 

Scoring Wilder was undoubtedly the most well rounded book I've read in a long time. If I wasn't bursting out loud with laughter, I was either swept away by the heat and steaminess that is Liam Wilder or...plotting the deaths of a couple of secondary characters. There wasn't a moment that went by in this book that I wasn't feeling something. Laughter. Heartache. Anger. Frustration. Happiness. All of it. Everything. My Kindle's highlighter really got a work out! This book already had me wrapped around it's finger before I opened it and read the first paragraph. Why? One word; soccer. In my world there are no other sports. Only soccer.

I had an attempt at a reading schedule. I was trying to be so good! But for days I'd been seeing people like, well especially really, Book Rock Betty screaming the praises of this book called Scoring Wilder. The woman has excellent taste in books and book boyfriends, so last week I bought it hoping to get to it soon. I had a blog tour review book opened up all ready to start it, but something was nagging at me. I swear Liam Wilder was whispering in my ear saying, "Come on we both know how this is going to go down. Close that book. Quit lying to yourself. Come meet me. You won't regret it..."

Bastard. He was right.

I glanced down to ensure that I wasn't humping his leg.

I absolutely adored Kinsley. She instantly won me over with her wit and humor. She had goals and dreams and she worked her butt off to try to achieve those goals. Soccer was her life and I guess what really got me about her was that she wasn't in it for the fame or the money or anything that being on the Olympic soccer team could possibly bring her in that area. She did what she did and she worked as hard as she did because of her love of the game. She actually prefers to be out of the spotlight. I doubt I'd have liked her as much as I did had she not been that way. I also appreciated the way she cared about her friends and family. Definitely someone I'd be friends with in real life.

"Can I say I'm a reformed bad boy without sounding like a tool?"

Liam freaking Wilder. Excuse me for a moment while I go try to compose myself after the reaction I have with just thought of his name. There are almost no words for this guy. He's a pro soccer player and he's just about the closest thing to perfection as you can get. He never stopped surprising me. Even from the very start. And the more I got to know him the harder I fell for this guy. He's fiercely protective, unbelievably thoughtful and has a soft side that had me melting like no other. And holy hell does he know how to heat things up. I'm surprised I finished this as quickly as I did. There were a few parts I had to reread a few times before I was able to move on. He's just all sorts of whoa.

I needed a nap and a cigarette. Too bad I didn't smoke.

This was my first book I've read by R.S. Grey. But if Scoring Wilder is any indication of the type of work that I have to look forward to reading from her in the future...with this one book she has a fangirl for life. Not only are her characters funny and interesting and not just the main characters either. Her secondary characters had me as well. So many of them that I would love to hang out with in real life. It isn't just the characters though. The story sucked me in right away and didn't let me go until the very last page. My advice? Buy this book now! But be prepared to accomplish nothing else once you start it until you're done. Not even sleep. Trust me, I speak from experience! Even as tired as I am was so worth it. I'd do it all over again.
