Make sure to read THE DEAL & THE MISTAKE first - you do NOT want to miss meeting those guys!

He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls
he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire worldand now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoringand shoot for love.

 This is finally Dean's story! ☺☺☺
We already met him in the previous books, he's best friends with Logan & Garrett.
He's a happy, rich college kid.
He loves hockey - but he knows he'll never go pro - he'll go on to Harvard Law soon.
And in the meantime he'll have as much amazing sex as possible.
While he's just getting busy with two girls in his house, our Allie comes knocking.
She was invited by her bestie Hannah to sleep in Garrett's room while the two happy couples are away for the weekend.

Why she needs to sleep there you ask? Because her ex Sean has finally been dumped the night before.
He wanted her to not follow her dream career in acting and become the nice little housewifey instead.
Pffff. As if.

Dean wants to keep his best buddies and their girls happy and hires himself as Allie's bodyguard...and the guarding of the body might be very intense that first night.
And completely UN-Dean-like, he wants more.
Not getting-married-more, but more of that amazing, slightly kinky sex!


 Nope . . . I'm not telling you ☺


EEEEP!!!!! Finally the new Off Campus book on my kindle!!!

Such an amazing book.
I already loved THE DEAL & THE MISTAKE sooo much - and this one didn't disappoint one bit!

  Dean is so absolutely adorable.
Not at all the dumb & pretty rich boy most people think he is.
He's smart and talented and sexy and kind and sooo funny.
Poor guy - I had a few mega-laughs because of him. Once I almost fell off the couch!!!!

And Allie, she's adorable too. Not this shy thing we get with so many new adult heroines.
Allie & Dean are so perfect for each other.
But there's her ex Sean and Dean's reputation standing in the way...
But we know that they'll get their Happy Ever After one day...
it might just take a little while for them to fight through all the obstacles...

I loved every minute of the book!!!

A tiny little thing that bothered me a bit - just like in the last book....Elle uses the expression HOOK-UP waaaay too much.
I stopped counting after 39548 ☺ But that's just a thing that's a personal problem - might not bother anyone else at all!

THE SCORE was such an amazingly adorable & sexy & cute & funny Romance!
You will soooo want your own Dean after reading it!!!
And now hurry Elle - I want to read Tucker's story and everyone else's too!!! I need more of those amazing guys!!! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I have loved The Deal and The Mistake, and had been impatiently waiting for The Score.

It was like Christmas came early when The Score arrived on my Kindle!

I always knew that Dean DiLaurentis' story was going to be a good one.  The Score was everything I hoped it would be - and so much more.

Allie wasn't looking for a relationship, just a one night stand to get over her ex boyfriend.  But as a reader, you just knew it was never going to be one night.

I adored Allie right from the start.  She is smart, sassy - but still struggling with her break up.. keeping broken up that is.

Dean was not the full on unredeemable man whore I expected of him.  He and "Little Dean" were all Allie's from the moment they were first together.

I did feel a little sorry for Dean at times, with the way his friends treated him, the way he was with women.  How could Allie trust him if his best friends thought the worst of him.

But still there were some times where Dean and Little Dean had me laughing so hard, nearly falling off the couch laughing out loud.

The Score is a sexy, funny read.  The banter between the Briar hockey boys, their ladies and Dean and Allie had me in stitches at times.

But there was also a deeper, darker even that came straight out of left field, completely blind siding me.  It left me shocked, stunned, and so emotional.  A few days later and it still shocks me.

There is also a little something at the end of The Score that is surely setting us up for the next book.

What I really loved about The Score is that it is pretty much angst free - woohoo!  It was a nice change from so many of the books these days.

I love Ms Kennedy's writing, and I can't wait to see what she brings us next.
