Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey: ARC Review

Title:  Scoring Wilder
Author:  R.S. Grey
Release Date: June 19, 2014


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.” 


If this book doesn’t increase attendance at MLS games, I don’t know what will.....

Scoring Wilder is a wonderfully sexy and refreshing take on forbidden love set against the back drop of a soccer field with a little bit of “Mean Girls” sprinkled on top. It has tons of laughs, rock hard abs, parties, parties, parties, backstabbing, hot soccer stars, and tons of sexual tension.

This book is HILARIOUS. My face hurt from smiling and laughing so much. I don’t remember the last time I laughed like this. Witty, funny, sarcastic. Kinsley's internal dialogue is seriously some of the funniest stuff ever! She is a sweet, funny, genuine, strong, and absolutely lovable heroine. Add in one sensationally hot and panty melting soccer star (Liam Wilder), a conniving spotlight hungry wench, a wonderful BFF, and I was in a virtual reading la-la land!

It started out as a forbidden romance and had the feel of doing something wrong, but then it sort of changed paths along the way. And, we didn't see much of the "bad boy" Coach Wilder (*cue the sad face*). I was disappointed, but only for all of 2 seconds because Liam Wilder is so yummy he can make you forget your name. 

All-in-all, Scoring Wilder is a great read that kept me constantly tapping my Kindle to find what happens next. This is a feel good book, and I still have a smile plastered on my face just thinking about it. If you’re looking for something lighter that will make you laugh, swoon, and pump your fist, Scoring Wilder is definitely what you’re looking for! 

4.25 STARS!


I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, metaphors and similes, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.



Behind His Lens


Twenty-three year old model Charley Whitlock built a quiet life for herself after disaster struck four years ago. She hides beneath her beautiful mask, never revealing her true self to the world... until she comes face-to-face with her new photographer — sexy, possessive Jude Anderson. It's clear from the first time she meets him that she's playing by his rules. He says jump, she asks how high. He tells her to unzip her cream Dior gown; she knows she has to comply. But what if she wants him to take charge outside of the studio as well?

Jude Anderson has a strict "no model" dating policy. But everything about Charley sets his body on fire.

When a tropical photo shoot in Hawaii forces the stubborn pair into sexually charged situations, their chemistry can no longer be ignored. They’ll have to decide if they’re willing to break their rules and leave the past behind or if they’ll stay consumed by their demons forever.

Will Jude persuade Charley to give in to her deepest desires?

With This Heart


If someone had told me a year ago that I was about to fall in love, go on an epic road trip, ride a Triceratops, sing on a bar, and lose my virginity, I would have assumed they were on drugs.

Well, that is, until I met Beckham.

Beck was mostly to blame for my recklessness. Gorgeous, clever, undeniably charming Beck barreled into my life as if it were his mission to make sure I never took living for granted. He showed me that there were no boundaries, rules were for the spineless, and a kiss was supposed to happen when I least expected.

Beck was the plot twist that took me by surprise. Two months before I met him, death was knocking at my door. I'd all but given up my last scrap of hope when suddenly, I was given a second chance at life. This time around, I wasn't going to let it slip through my fingers.

We set out on a road trip with nothing to lose and no guarantees of tomorrow.

Our road trip was about young, reckless love.

The kind of love that burns bright.

The kind of love that no road-map could bring me back from.
