I thought it a good time to publish this review with Britain and the rest of Europe, heck the world being caught up in the thrill and the fun of Euro 2012!
Scored is the latest hot novella from the talented fingers of Lily Harlem. Here’s the blurb:
So my excitement is sky-high as I set off with the official press team to cover England’s battle for the European Cup. But when a series of unfortunate, or as it turns out fortunate events, attracts Tate’s attention my way, who am I to say no?
Add in a misogynistic manager, an over-zealous colleague, two blue silk ties and some incredible ball-handling skills and it becomes clear the road to victory, for me, will be an intensely erotic journey. Determined to savor every moment, I hang onto my sanity as best I can while living the fantasy and wondering if it can ever become reality. Because once Lewis Tate has taken me to heaven and back, its clear no one else will ever compare.
Reader Advisory – Scored is an erotic romance suitable for mature readers.
It is well known that I am footy mad. I love Manchester United and have spent untold hours watching matches and agonising over the results. You can tell from this book that Lily Harlem is also a fan who knows about these things. All the football talk is believable without being too nerdy. So if you love football (soccer) you’ll love this book and if you’re clueless you’ll love it too.
Lewis Tate, the England Captain in Lily’s tale is a real catch. He’s hot, skilled, witty and did I mention hot? He’s also a gentleman and a bit forceful in the bedroom. Oh yes, he’s one of those forceful types, ladies and if you’re anything like me you’ll be swept off your feet by him within a few paragraphs.
Nicky, the football reporter who narrates this tale is such a loveable soul. I can forgive how wonderful she looks in a see through bikini because she’s a bit clumsy and has wild hair and wild ways that refuse to be tamed. She’s believable and I loved reading her story.
The heat in this tale is scorching but it takes a looooonnnng time to get to the action but trust me, that’s not a bad thing. This is a slow burner which builds the anticipation so deliciously you’ll have to keep reading to find out when the sex actually happens. And when it does, phew, you won’t be disappointed.
I can thoroughly recommend Scored. It’s a clever story with twists and turns and lots of hot sex and football. What more could a girl want!
