Scoring Wilder Review

Scoring Wilder
By: R.S. Grey

What started out as a joke— seduce Coach Wilder—soon became a goal she had to score. 

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.

• A face that makes girls weep – check. 
• Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) – check. 
• Enough confidence to shift the earth’s gravitational pull – double check.

Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits . Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. “Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you’ll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.”) But that just makes him all the more enticing…Besides, Kinsley's already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished.

Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term “team bonding.” 

Well I would really like to say that this book is fantastic but unfortunately I can't. After the first chapter I was really blown away with the humor and the story line. I really liked where it was heading but the farther I read, my interest slowly dwindled. By the end I was forcing myself through just so I could get the end.

The whole story around Kinlsey and her forbidden relationship with Liam Wilder should have been a hit but it just lacked I found. I personally just didn't connect with Kinsley at all. I really wanted to like her more but I just didn't. The worst thing is, is that I can't pin point specific things that I didn't like. I just didn't connect with her. I didn't believe her. Lets just say the book didn't pull me in emotionally.  Urrgg!! I really wanted to like it! I tried hard, Scoring Wilder just didn't do anything for me. 

The saving grace in this novel is the relationship between Kinsley and her best friend Becca. They were so freaking hilarious!!! I did enjoy whenever they were together. They became fast friends and really were a delight. Some of the things they said and did together had me laughing out loud. Literally. It was the one thing that got me to the end of the novel cause I wanted to make sure they they were going to be okay.

That being said I could only give this book a two paw rating. The beginning really hooked me and it was looking like it was going to be good but closer to the middle and the end, everything just seemed to wrap up too perfectly. It was like there were a lot of situations and feelings that the author wanted the reader to read, but it ended up just leaving the story long and drawn out. I may be over analyzing it and most people could very much enjoy the book. I just didn't. =(
