Looking To Score. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Looking to Score by Carrie Gray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

He’s like literally the worst. 

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population. 

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A. 

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first. 

Looking To Score

Girl with a checkered past has to reign in Jock with image issues!

A lot of New Adult romance novels follow a somewhat similar format and this one doesn’t differ too far, but it works and that is why I like these college athlete romance books. It is generally the Star Athlete and/or big man on campus, you know the one. The guy that all the girls want and all the guys want to be. He is the life of every party, the guy that wins all the games and sleeps with one girl after another.

Yet somehow there is a girl that doesn’t fit the mold, she is smart and either brought in as a tutor, or to get him to settle down and stop partying. In this case, her name is Amanda Mathews and she transferred to the University of Texas from USC because she had been Partying too much and had embarrassed herself one too many times on social media. After transferring she had cleaned up her act completely and focused on her studies and only has an internship as a publicist left to do in order to graduate a semester early.

Amanda’s assignment for her internship was to improve the public profile of the football team’s leading player Oakley Davis. Oakley has his Mother’s money behind him, he doesn’t seem to care about going pro, so he doesn’t care about his image, and he posts about almost everything he does on social media. Including all his partying, drinking and the girls he gets with. Almost everyone thinks Amanda has little chance of success.

The book is quite a fun ride while the Amanda and Oakley get to know each other and learn to work together. I also like some of the side characters including Amanda’s parents and some of the guys on the football team. Amanda calls Oakley “Problem” and Oakley calls Amanda “Solver” which is actually more and more cute as the story goes on. I really liked this steamy new adult sports romance!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
