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 world—and 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 scoring…and shoot for love.
The Score is the third book in the Off Campus series and can be read as standalone. It is centered on Dean and Allie.
Before even beginning this review, I have to start off by saying that Garrett was my absolute favorite of the series but that quickly changed with The Score. Move over Garrett, Dean has my heart now.
We meet Dean in the first two books of the Off Campus Series. We’re given the impression that Dean is the biggest man whore out of the team. He has this carefree laid-back personality that you sometimes can’t take him seriously. He is actually very underestimated. Even I underestimated him.
We have also met Allie in The Deal. I always enjoyed her character and really grew to love her in The Score. I loved how she was determined to make her dreams come true no matter how hard it seemed. I really enjoyed seeing her explore sexuality and not feel bad about it, because we all know the stigma that it is okay for a guy to experiment but not so much a girl. I loved how the book really showed that was okay.
The Score had me laughing out loud, blushing and swooning. I was also pretty heartbroken about certain events that took place; I actually wasn’t expecting some of the book to happen. I won’t say what but know that the plot twists in the books really caught me off guard.
The Deal was easily my favorite book in the series but after reading The Score I have to say that it may just be my absolute favorite and I cannot, I MEAN CANNOT WAIT FOR THE GOAL.
