Nineteen year-old Kinsley Bryant has just begun playing college soccer and has Olympic tryouts on the horizon. The last thing she needs is Liam Wilder. A professional soccer player, renowned panty-dropper, and he just so happens to be her coach. Kinsley's coaches have made it very clear that Liam is forbidden, the threat of being kicked off the team constantly looming over Kinsley's head. But you always want what you can't have, don't you? And this means that Kinsley and Liam have to navigate through very dangerous territory.
starts with Kinsley walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of another girl, so she blows up and cuts him out of her life. Kinsley has a very fiery personality, and quite a few great one liners.
If only we actually were in Harry Potter. I'd totally Crucio her ass. Yeah, that's right, I'd use one of the Unforgivable Curses. Come at me, Ministry of Magic.
This made reading very entertaining. R. S. Grey got a lot of popular culture in, Harry Potter, Katniss and Miley to name a few. These little references made the book feel like it was written by a nineteen year-old soccer playing party girl. They were a very nice touch.
Kinsley immediately makes two best friends after moving into the 'Rookie House', Becca and Emily. They seem to be best friends for a while, but then Grey suddenly drops Emily. Kinsley's friendship centres on Becca, the two keep Kinsley's relationship secret from one of their supposed best friends. I don't feel that girls are really like that, Emily was ditched in the middle and picked up again at the end. If you want Kinsley to have two best friends, then give her two.
There's a whole lot of sex in Scoring Wilder, too much sex. Do we need to read every single detail of Liam and Kinsley's sex life? No, thank you. So if you don't like books with a lot of sexual content, then you need to be aware that this book has it in spades.
is the third or fourth book I've read that mentions the song 'Do I Wanna Know?
' by the Arctic Monkeys
. Yes, it's a great song, but why do authors keep having it playing during the sex scenes?
I enjoyed Scoring Wilder, there was a lot of sex, but Kinsley was a really funny character, and her fiery personality was very entertaining. Have you read Scoring Wilder? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments. If you're new I'd love for you to follow me on Bloglovin'!
