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."

I loved this book! Liam Wilder is your typical hot, sexy as sin professional athlete, but he is also so much more. It took him finding rising star soccer prodigy Kinsley Bryant to realize where he wanted his life to head.
Kinsley Bryant is such a great female character. She is hilarious, caring and a very friendly person. I love that she doesn't come from a dark and twisted past. She has loving parents who love and support her and it shows in her personality. There were so many times that I thought she would lose her shit over what Tara or the media was doing to her, but she handled it all so well. She is your typical 19 year old looking to have a good time all the while trying to reach her dreams of playing soccer at the Olympic level. Which apparently she is pretty bad ass at soccer and so is Coach Wilder.
The first time they meet is pretty great. I love that she is so loose lipped after having her birthday shots and says somethings to him she doesn't mean to. Only it is what works for his attraction to her. They had to be the cutest couple that I have read lately. They have such a great relationship right from the start. There isn't of the unnecessary drama that usually surrounds couples who are in the limelight. The only drama is psycho Tara and her obsession with being famous. Well, I guess that is not entirely true...the fact that at the beginning Liam is Kinsley's coach and they have such an attraction that neither can ignore could qualify as a tiny bit of drama. But Liam handles it really well and made me love him all the more for it. It was nice to read a book that all the drama was mostly centered on things outside of the relationship and that they couple stayed strong through it all.
This story is well written and so are the characters. They are easily relatable and I connected with them instantly. I loved Becca, Emily and Penn. I love how this book opens up because you are instantly in love with Kinsley. The ending (epilogue) is pretty awesome too! Overall this is a great read and I would suggest reading it if you are looking for a sweet, sexy romance.
