QUICK REVIEW: Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey


Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Purchase: Amazon / B&N



Synopsis:

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+)

* 2 STARS * Review:


Don't hate me but this was really bad.

I admit that I picked this book up mainly because I'm huge fan of forbidden romance stories. Imagine my disappointment while reading this book. It has to be the least exciting story about forbidden love ever. Where was the real thrill? The situations that would make my heart speed up with adrenalin? This story made me feel nothing. It's not enough to tell me how characters are feeling if I cannot feel it myself while reading.

Do I sound harsh? I'm sorry. I don't want to hurt anyone. This book was just not for me at all. All the drama surrounding "romance" between main protagonists was annoying and boring to read about. I'm putting romance in quotations marks on purpose because there was no believable romantic connection in this novel. I just wasn't buying the fact that Liam and Kinsley would risk so much for sex or flirt since they basically knew nothing about each other but how they look...

And just a little reminder at the end. This is purely my subjective opinion. What didn't work for me, may be loved by others. Afterall, many of my friends did enjoy this book so I would recommend to check other reviews before deciding if you want to give Scoring Wilder a chance or not.
