Scoring With Him – Lauren Blakely

Reviews by Yael Waknin


An emotional, sexy, forbidden romance! Scoring with Him is the first novel in the utterly addictive Men of Summer Series!

Falling for the rookie wasn’t part of the plan.

As a pro athlete, I have one unbreakable rule when it comes to men — Don’t date another baseball player.

Good thing I haven’t been tempted once in four years in the majors.

Until the day a rising star walks into my locker room. Outgoing, affable, and sexy-as-sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles. He seems to get me too, maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars — ones we’ll both fight to protect.

But, I’ve got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present.

All the more reason to resist the kind of dirty deeds his lips and eyes promise.

Even after I plant a scorching, hot kiss on the rookie one night after a game.

Even after he sends me the world’s sexiest selfie.

But when Grant reveals his biggest secret, I’m so damn ready to rip up the rulebook.

Turns out he’s a virgin and he wants me to help him get around all the bases.

The only rule? Don’t fall in love with him as we go

My review

I started this audiobook after listening to two MM books and really liked this sub-genre.

I’ve searched another MM book with the two amazing narrators Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan, and I know this author in several books I’ve read.

The two narrators had wonderful chemistry in the audiobook HIM, so I knew this book would be good.

Declan is an out-of-the-closet baseball player with an uncanny history of relationships.

In pre-season training, Grant arrives. Grant knows Declan because he is kind of his “fan” as a baseball player.

They both decided to devote themselves to the game and not look for a relationship – which is basically a code for “obviously, you will find a relationship when you are not looking.”

Grant doesn’t have the same experience Declan has with relationships and in guys in general.

They are totally attracted to each other. They understand each other in a way that not everyone understands. They are very suitable, but it is not okay to start a relationship with a player from your team, so they both oppose it in any way possible.

Teddy was Grant, and Teddy is amazing and perfect in his narration, and Grant was adorable. I loved his “innocence,” along with his understanding and his desire to know, learn, experience, and feel.

It was so interesting to get into his head and learn about him and his feelings and desires. He was charming, sensitive, caring, and friendly.

Jacob was Dylan, and I really liked Jacob from the first audio I listened to (HIM), and here too, he did not disappoint. He has something in his voice that makes the character so human that it’s hard for me to explain.

Their chemistry was hot. Their connection was electrifying, and their feelings melted my heart.

The book was not too dramatic, not too heavy, and not too light. It was a book like a dessert – everything was accurate, and nothing was out of place. The book went up, progressed, and evolved until it was hot, hot, and ready to eat (wow, what an analogy I came up with).

I loved this book and the combination of Teddy and Jacob, so I know I will be looking for more of their books together!
