A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely about a sports star and the woman who's off limits...

It should have been a simple play

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, 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, so it's hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than 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 just out of bounds?


I don't date players. And I definitely don't sleep with players. And I absolutely don't fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he's more than just sexy -- he's clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.
But my job is at stake, and I can't afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I've already lost that game.

What's a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she's falling for is off limits?

Wide Receiver Jones is known as the fun/party guy in the team. The guy that's in the tabloids with a new girl every week. But he needs to stop that shit. Ever since his old agent took off with all of his clients' money, Jones needs to get a better public reputation - even if he didn't do anything wrong.
Enter Jillian. She's the team's publicist and she's helping Jones trying to look like the good guy that he is.
And he's helping her with a charity calendar.
Both have been in lust/love with the other for years. But they can't start something because it wouldn't look professional. They don't want to lose their jobs. And also both think they're so not the other's type.
But they so are.
And they have to spend A LOT of time together these next few weeks.
Let the fun times begin....

What will happen with Jillian & Jones?
Will there be a HEA?

I just love a romantic comedy written in dual POV!
I LOVE LOVE Lauren's male POV romcoms, but hearing both their thoughts is great too.
And this one was really adorable.

So funny and sweet and footbally. With lots of hilarious moments and cute moments and sad & moving moments and adorable doggy moments! I just adored Jones & Jillian.
They're so perfect for each other, but because of their jobs they can't or rather shouldn't be together.
But of course we're fighting for that HEA!!!
And I really loved reading about that journey.

Great book. Not too much unnecessary drama - I love that.
It might have been a tiny little bit too sweet and perfect at times. Especially Jones - he comes across as a bit of a too-soft-softie here and there with his understanding and listening and asking about feelings and stuff ...

but he's still an amazing guy! Handsome and Hot and lotsa naked most of the time! ☺
And I loved the parents of our darlings - most books these days have horrible parents - I always love it when a book has great ones!

I really enjoyed reading this book!!!!

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE was an amazingly adorable & funny & sweet football romance!! Run to your nearest amazon asap for your own JONES - this one (plus his cute dog) is MINE !!!

ARC received for an honest review


Book an appointment with your dentist, as Jillian and Jones' story is so darn sweet it will give you a toothache.

I have adored Ms Blakely's male POV stories, however it was nice to go back to dual POV for a little while.

Most Likely To Score is full of fun and flirty banter, laced with a huge dose of UST.  Serious sexual tension that you can cut with a knife. **still fanning myself**

At times Jones kinda loses his man card with his amazingness, but he earns it all back - with extra (this could just be me though)

I love that Jones really likes to be at one with nature.  Poor Jillian - I know I would never ever have her willpower!

What I really liked is that there is no drama for drama's sake.  No OTT tragedy in their pasts (sure, they have their problems but who doesn't?)  Nope, we are focused on our lovelies and them working towards a relationship  when it all seems like it's a bad idea)

So hands off (I am talking about you Bianca!) I am taking this Jones as mine!

Can't wait to see what Ms Blakely brings us next.

“Love it,” Christine says emphatically, her lips and that metal hoop in the bottom one the only parts of her face visible since the lens covers the rest. “How about a little tough-guy look now?”
Because tough guys hold footballs in front of their junk.
“This is my best badass pose,” I say, narrowing my eyes and staring at the camera like I’d stare at the secondary of the Miami Mavericks.
“Oh yes, more of that, right, Jillian?” Christine shouts to the other person here in the studio with us.
That person is Jillian, and she hasn’t looked my way since I strolled in here and dropped my drawers. Damn shame.
From her spot leaning against the far wall, the team publicist answers in a crisp, professional tone I know well. “Exactly. We love his tough-guy face.”
She doesn’t even look up from her phone.
I keep working it for Christine, doing my best to make sure my blue eyes will melt whoever is looking at the picture when the magazine hits newsstands and Internet browsers in another few weeks.
It’s an evergreen kind of issue, since the body edition is one of the most popular. Gee, I wonder why. I’ve no doubt this shot of me with a football for my skivvies will quickly surpass the previous most-searched-for image of yours truly—the game-winning catch I made in the end zone in the Super Bowl two years ago.
But, to be fair, there’s another shot of me that’s searched for maybe a tiny bit more. I like to pretend that shot doesn’t exist.
“The camera loves you,” Christine croons as the snap, snap, snap of the lens keeps the rhythm.
“The feeling is entirely mutual,” I say, pursing my lips in an over-the-top kiss.
Christine laughs. “You are my favorite ham in all of sports, Jones. That’ll be a perfect outtake for our website.”
“That’s a brilliant idea,” Jillian chimes in. “Make sure to send me a copy for social, please.”
“Absolutely,” Christine answers.
I sneak a peek at the dark-haired woman by the wall, that silky curtain of sleekness framing her face as she smiles a bright, buoyant, outgoing grin at the photographer then drops her head back down.
Jillian Moore is one tough nut to crack.
I’m nearly naked in front of her, and she hasn’t once looked my way.
As the woman behind the lens shoots another photo with my favorite ball covering my favorite balls, Jillian doesn’t even spare another glance.
I’m going to need a whole new playbook to get this woman’s attention.
