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+)
Scoring Wilder is a very nice mix of romance and fun.  Kinsley is such an outgoing but down to earth person that you fall in love with her instantly.  As an up and coming soccer star with Olympic potential, she is focused on her soccer career until the day her path crosses with Liam Wilder - professional soccer player, playboy, and all around super hot stuff.  But he is strictly off limits.

This doesn't stop Liam and Kinsley from completely falling for each other - which leads to a lot of trouble.  The mean girl makes life impossible, and when the media gets wind of it, neither of them can get out of the spotlight.  These are all difficult things to throw at a new relationship, and they have a hard time dealing with it at times.

I really loved the pace of this story and the way the plot evolved.  From hiding their relationship to having it in the media spotlight - each step of their journey was a new learning experience in life.  I hated that I couldn't read this all in one sitting.  There are so many reasons that you should read this, that I can't list them all.  It's a coming of age, sports, celebrity, romance that never goes overboard or gets boring.
