Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Kinsley Bryant is a 19 year old up and coming soccer star. Her focus is on making the upcoming Olympic team. She has made some good new friends on the team and things seem to be going great. Then she finds out that the incredibly sexy Liam Wilder, professional soccer player and notorious bad boy is one of her coaches. It is made clear that he is off limits and that getting involved with Coach Wilder can get you kicked off the team. Kinsley and Liam find that staying away from each other is not going to be an option. They start to explore their forbidden romance, but a vindictive team mate may try to sabotage them both.
This story hooked me fast and kept me engaged throughout. I absolutely loved Kinsley. She is confident, determined, and witty. Through her strong personality she is also thoughtful and loyal to those she cares about. She's been hurt in the past, but she doesn't let those experiences change the way she lives her life or views herself. Her friendship with Becca is delightful and the two of them are a force to be reckoned with. And then there is Liam. Good lord. I can only imagine that anyone and everyone would be in love with Liam by the end of the story. When the story begins, it is easy to see the sexy cocky guy that is easy to lust after, but he quickly reveals himself to have more depth than we realize. The chemistry between he and Kinsley is spectacular and there is all kinds of hotness going on in here. I loved this story and found it hard to put down once I started. I definitely recommend this and will gladly read more by this author in the future.
