Most Likely to Score by Lauren Blakely-Review and Book Tour
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 8,2018
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?
REVIEW:MOST LIKELY TO SCORE by Lauren Blakely is a contemporary, adult, stand alone, erotic, romance sports story line focusing NFL wide receiver Jones Beckett, and San Francisco Renegade PR director Jillian Moore.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Jillian and Jones) MOST LIKELY TO SCORE follows the forbidden relationship between San Francisco Renegade’s wide receiver, and manwh*re Jones Beckett, and the team’s PR director Jillian Moore. For months Jillian and Jones have been dancing around one another, the sexual attraction palpable and edgy but with Jones’ reputation drowning in off-field one-night stands Jillian Moore is called in to clean up his notoriety and fame in the public eye. What ensues is the building love and romance between Jillian and Jones, and the potential fall-out when their relationship is revealed to the people in charge.
Jillian Moore has had a crush on Jones Beckett for as long as she could remember but his reputation with the ladies precedes his introduction to the woman with whom he is falling in love. Believing Jones is out of her league, Jillian struggles with her attraction to the man with whom she begins a close, personal relationship.
The relationship between Jillian and Jones is one of immediate attraction; a forbidden love between two San Francisco Renegade employees but a love that grows stronger as their relationship climbs. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and passionate with the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Jones’ Renegade teammates, front office personnel, media reporters, sponsors, agents and numerous fans. We are introduced to Jillian’s best friend Kate, as well as her father Aaron Moore; and Jones’ brothers Trevor.
The world building follows the relationship between our leading couple, as well as the public relations nightmare of a PR director as it pertains to a star athlete. The story line conflict is minimal as most of the issues are part of a preconceived notion about other people’s reaction to co-workers dating on the job.
MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a sweet, sexy and entertaining story line. The premise is
Inviting and engaging; the characters are charismatic and energetic; the romance is enthusiastic and captivating.
