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+)
Kinsley Bryant is a rookie Soccer player at ULA. She’s charming, young, confident, enthusiastic and an aspiring Olympian. As much as possible, she focuses on her athletic career in preparation to the Olympic tryouts. Given that her two ex-boyfriends cheated on her, the last thing she wants is to be distracted. However, things changed when she’s attracted to her coach, Liam Wilder. He’s a popular Soccer player of the LA Stars who has a bad boy reputation and voluntarily coaches her team. The thing is, they’re forbidden to have a relationship but their feelings with each other is palpable and they couldn’t resist each other.
Scoring Wilder is a light and adorable New Adult sports romance novel. This is the first book I’ve read from R.S. Grey and I really enjoyed it. Her writing style is simply beautiful and the story is great though it’s cliché. On the other hand,there are times Kinsley annoyed me. Don’t get me wrong, I adore her but there are moments she’s rowdy, a immature and I don’t like when she’s trying to be cool. It makes me feel like she’s pretending but I’m glad her character gets better halfway through the book. Despite my annoyance, I love when she sticks up with her friends, it’s selfless and adorable, I ended up liking her. I love her friendship with Becca and Emily (though I wish Emily has more exposure as Becca but.. She’s busy Skyping her boyfriend. I can’t blame her). As for Liam, Oh-Dear-Hot-Book-Boyfriend. HE’S SO SEXY, SWEET AND LOVABLE. I don’t have any complains about this sweet bad boy. BAD BOYS ARE MY WEAKNESS. The sexy times are great enough to give me butterflies as their relationship progresses.
I like the ending but I find it rushed. It’s still a good story though and I’m looking forward to read another R.S. Grey book. Also, I wished Penn and Becca have their own book. These two have a potential 😉
