Kelsey: My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.

Matt: After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.

It’s a baseball-inspired romance. Think about it… tight pants, tight bodies, tight buns! You can obviously tell where my mind went ;)

I’ve read pretty much everything I could get my hands on from this author. Not only can he write, but his online personality is charming, funny and approachable, which comes out loud and clear in his work. To date, my favorite book of his was The Matriarch, but now… my new favorite is Scored. This book was brilliant. It was hilarious, romantic, and although I don’t personally know any baseball players, I am friends with a few professional athletes (football and basketball players), so I found this story to be pseudo-realistic.

Ever since I read Bossed, I knew that Matt and Kelsey were going to get it on. I was so excited to find out how their story would play out. I’m beyond impressed. Matt knew that he wanted Kelsey. He was even willing to admit that she was his forever. Kelsey was a bit hesitant, but Matt’s persistence, charm, and naturally good personality slowly but surely won her over. However, their happily ever after hit a huge snag. Matt might not be around for long as he was a free agent, with an offer to leave his home team for millions upon millions of cold hard cash. It’s a tempting offer, because he could do so much with that money for the charities that are close to his heart. So where does Kelsey fit in to this decision?

Again, I loved this story. Absolutely, positively loved it. This was, in my opinion, Sloane’s best work by far. I can’t wait to see what he’s going to give us next. If you haven’t had the privilege of experiencing his writing, I can’t recommend this book enough. You most definitely won’t regret it!
