It seemed like a good idea at the time...

As the team's publicist, I need a football player to be the face of our charity calendar, and Jones Beckett needs a savvy PR woman to manage his new sponsorship deal. A simple give and take, and I'm sure I'll have no problem following my iron-clad rule -- don't date a player. And never ever fall for one. No matter how charming, big-hearted and devilishly clever the man is.

But you know what they say about best laid plans...

Once I start spending my off-season days and nights with Jones, I'm following a whole new playbook, one that has me falling hard for the incorrigible flirt -- heart, body and mind. That's against the rules, and now what seemed like a bright idea has turned into a dangerously forbidden one.

It was supposed to be an I-scratch-her-back-she-scratched-mine kind of arrangement. And man, 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. Trouble is, I want more 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 off limits?

Lauren Blakely has done it again! I've always looked forward to her books, especially her recent releases because they've all been the bomb dot com, and Most Likely to Score is no exception.

Everything about Most Likely to Score is a total favourite: a steamy off-limits romance between a sexy football superstar and the team’s smart and savvy publicist featuring a few adorable furry friends.

While Lauren Blakely has already teased some subtle flirting between Jones and Jillian in Most Valuable Playboy, nothing about it has prepared me for all the sizzling attraction and explosive chemistry between these two in Most Likely to Score.

There’s no denying Jones Beckett has it real bad for Jillian Moore. He’s done everything to get her attention, from posing (and strutting) bare naked (very subtle) and throwing his towel—quite literally… but she just won’t budge. Funnily enough, Jillian also feels the same way but dating a football player while being the team’s publicist isn’t exactly professional. But a new project involving cleaning up Jones’ wild-child image and a few adorable pets that have got them working together closer than ever just shows their self-control isn’t exactly as strong as they thought.

Jones and Jillian are the type of characters you’d root for to be together. They’re just so perfect for each other! While I’m all for total alpha male heroes in my romance novels, there’s still nothing way better than a man who’s both charming and incredibly grounded. Jones Beckett is the dream. He might initially come off as the typical flirty football superstar with a slight penchant for hooking up, but he’s incredibly kind, a total witty goofball, and a family man (and my ovaries just burst right then and there).

Jillian Moore would have to be one of my favourite characters ever written by Lauren Blakely. First things first, she’s Chinese and was adopted by an American couple as a baby. I love that she’s seriously driven when it comes to her career and her job as the PR person for The Renegades, but she never comes off as icy. As a matter of fact, she’s adored for her nice personality. Her love for her family and her adorable quirks, especially her fascination for Chinese lucky charms, are other things to love about her.

Most Likely to Score is all types of fun and flirty; a sports romantic comedy you shouldn’t dare miss out on. You’ll fall in love with both Jones and Jillian, and their sexy Secret Love Song-ish romance. Don’t fret, the romance is definitely free of over-the-top drama but will surely leave you swooning. A total page-turner you won't regret picking up!
