Two love-matches made.
One to go.
Even though two of his best friends have settled down, Wes Lancaster is determined not to get sucked into some siren’s web. As owner of the professional football team the New York Mavericks and wildly successful BAD restaurant, his lifestyle is full as it is.
Well, it was, until Winnie Winslow, the new, sexy, stiletto-wearing Team Physician trash-talks him in the locker room without batting an eye.
Now he can’t stop himself from wanting her.
The only girl in her parents’ brood of five, she’s as outspoken as she is beautiful and the kind of woman who holds her own—and then some.
Always competitive at heart, if he’s going all in for love…
Wes sure as hell wants a Win-Win.
Prepare to get a little dirty because this one might go into overtime.
It’s either a character, a set of characters, or the plot line that tethers me to a book. In the case of Scoring a Billionaire, there was one particular character—an unexpected one that won my heart over. Lexi Winslow was a welcome surprise. She is the sunshine on a cloudy day, the cherry on top, the winning lottery ticket. Lexi is Winnie Winslow’s daughter and the mother/daughter relationship between them was one of my most favorite part in the book. As a single mom, Winnie has greatly relied on her own strength and perseverance as well as help from her brothers. When Winnie’s character was first introduced in Banking the Billionaire, I knew that she would be a great addition to this beloved series. But it was when I realized that she would be Wes Lancaster’s love interest that really piqued my interest. Honestly, I couldn’t wait to finally read their story because I felt like these two characters had so much more to lose along the way.
In Scoring the Billionaire, there’s this stifling sexual tension between Winnie and Wes. It was like the more they denied their feelings for one another, the more their need became. And the more their need for one another became, the hotter the words across my e-reader became. It truly was a Win-Win. For Wes, it was difficult for him to truly open himself up to the possibility of a life-long relationship because of his past. A known uptight workaholic, Wes Lancaster’s world tilts as soon as he lays his eyes on his new team physician, Winnie Winslow. But it isn’t until little Lexi with an unbelievable knack for numbers steps into his life that his world is turned upside down. I loved his interaction with her and I could totally relate as to how she won him over.
We also get the chance to reunite with the first two couples in the Billionaire Bad Boy series. I was quickly reminded why I became a Max Monroe fanatic. Trust me when I say that these 4 did not disappoint. Thatch and Cassie were as crazy and funny as ever while Kline and Georgia were still as ridiculously in love and hot for one another! Gosh how I love them!
As I had expected, Winnie and Wes had the most to lose by giving into one another. With Lexi in the picture, they couldn’t afford the same lax behavior that Kline and Georgia and Thatch and Cassie could. Everything was on the line from the moment that hotel door closed behind Wes and Winnie. While this book wasn’t exactly my fave of the series, I have to say that it is by far the most charming and most heartwarming of all.
It is a bittersweet feeling to know that the follow-up to this book, Scoring Her would be the last in this laugh out loud, sexy as sin series. However, mixed emotions I seem to be feeling about it, I am super excited to read it too. So if you’re a Max Monroe/Billionaire Bad Boys fanatic like me, you definitely need to read this one.
