✯RELEASE DAY LAUNCH:✯ Most Likely To Score by Lauren Blakely {REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!}

Most Likely To Score by Lauren Blakely

Release Date: January 8th 2018 by Lauren Blakely Books
Pages: 300
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely about a sports star and the woman who's off limits... 

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?

My Review:

Having read other books by Lauren Blakely before, I knew that her stories are always filled with great characters and Most Likely To Score didn’t disappoint at all. From the sexy cover to the intriguing synopsis, Blakely delivered a great forbidden romance between a sports star and the team’s publicists. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Jillian Moore, a publicist whose only goal right now is to focus on her career and nothing else. Though she gets to see extremely good looking players all the time, she is able to put work first before anything else and that’s exactly how she earns the respect of everyone in the team/field. But Jillian has been keeping a secret crush on one of the players for a while now and the fact that he seemed to always flirt with her could get them both in trouble. When she needs someone to be part of a photoshoot she asks him for his help, but it’s the sexual tension and chemistry between them that ultimately brakes all the barriers. It is after spending time together that they truly get to know each other and their feelings turn into so much more. 

Jones Beckett is a pro at what he does, he is a good in the field and he also happens to be good with the ladies. He has a reputation of being a womanizer, but those days are long over after the team’s publicists steps in to help him revamp his image. Despite working together there is something about Jillian that Jones can’t seem to stay away from. Every time he tries to make a move on her, she completely shots him down, but he is determined to win her over one way or another. But it’s after spending a couple of nights together that he finds himself feeling so much more for her than he imagined and now he has to figure out how to keep her before it’s too late.

I really liked the characters in the story, Jones is funny and charming. On the other hand, Jillian is a total workaholic who happens to have a cute crush on a really hot player. Their personalities compliment each other so well and their chemistry was sizzling! Jones is a truly sweet guy and he shows that throughout the book. But eventually their work is what tests them and they have to decide if pursuing a relationship is worth it knowing that risk of losing their jobs. Although that is the major obstacle that they have to face, there is really not a lot of drama or conflict in the story. I felt that the story was missing something to take it to the next level. I still enjoyed reading the ending, it was sweet and will most definitely leave you wanting for more. I would highly recommend reading this book and others by the author you will not regret it. ;)

My Rating:



He runs his hand through his hair, flashing a lopsided grin then a wink. “Sorry. I meant are you my personal PR person now?”

That word zips through me like an electric charge. A light gust of wind blows my hair across my cheeks, and I tuck the strands behind my ear, grateful for the temporary distraction courtesy of San Francisco’s windy morning. I shiver lightly from the chill. “Yes, that seems to be the case, and I’m happy to do it.”

He cocks his head to the side. “Are you like my babysitter?”

My jaw drops. “What? No. No. No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not a babysitter.”

He arches a brow. “A nanny?”

I smirk. “Jones, I would hope you’ve outgrown the need for a nanny.”

“That’s up for debate, it seems. But maybe you’re my governess?”

I roll my eyes and gesture to the car at the curb. “I’m not your nanny, I’m not your babysitter, and I’m definitely not your governess. I’m here to help you create the best image possible. I can market, publicize, and help you manage putting the best foot forward,” I say, my tone earnest, my meaning important. “I believe in what I do. I know you’re a great guy, and I want the world to see what I’ve seen in the last couple days.”


“That’s why I said yes when Ford asked for my help. I’m not interested in being anyone’s au pair. I am very interested, though, in showing this city what good things our team does on and off the field. Including you.” I take a breath and try to read him. To understand what’s beneath the teasing. I think I know what it is. He wants a choice. “But if you don’t want me to help out, I’ll step back and we can stick to just the calendar. I told Ford I’d do this for your new deal, because I want to be the one to help you if you need it, and it’s the kind of help I can give. Since you signed the contract yesterday, and the folks at Paleo Pet are local, they want to stop by the shoot later today. Take some pictures, chat, and so on. I’m happy to be there by your side the whole time, making sure you’re comfortable with everything, and you’re represented in the best way possible. But if those aren’t your wishes, and if it isn’t what you need, then I’ll be hands-off. I hold up my palms as if I’m backing away.

In a heartbeat, he grabs my wrists. Possessively. A thrill rushes through me, like a drumbeat pulsing in my veins. I look away from him briefly. I can’t make eye contact when he does this, when he touches me. If I do, he’ll know. He’ll realize I’m just like all the other women who fling panties at him, who chase him down in bars, who line up at the players’ entrance to become his football floozy for the night. I won’t ever be someone’s football floozy, and I can’t let him see for a second that I want some of the same things those other women want from him. Him.

“Don’t be hands-off,” he says, his voice soft.
