The Score by Elle Kennedy

•••

— BLURB —

He knows how to score, on and off the ice.

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.

** Each book in the series can technically be read as standalones but I recommend you read them all, in order.

— MY REVIEW —

Ahhhhhh! Dean is officially MY. FAVE. PLAYER. from this series!

I would’ve given this one full ratings just like the first book buuuut this one didn’t have an epilogue and I desperately needed one! Or at least a longer final chapter. And I know the timelines for each book all correspond with another and maybe that’s the reason why Dean’s story didn’t get an epilogue but it just felt a little unfinished.

But besides the fact that I loveee this damn book so much! Dean and Allie are such a perfect pair..and once again as individual characters..they didn’t suck one bit. So I think it’s safe to say Elle Kennedy is now my number one fave rom-com author who can create characters I don’t want to choke with my bare hands. Yipee!

This is the third book in the Off-Campus series and after having read all three back to back I can now pinpoint which way the stories are heading. I saw it about halfway through in The Mistake and I saw about a quarter way through in this one. Sometimes when a book gets predictable it can be off-putting to finish it, or not as excited to finish it — well that was no way the case with these books. There’s something about Elle’s writing style that keeps your attention (predictability or not) from start to finish.

Another amazing awe-inspiring couple in the series and another enjoyable storyline. There was no doubt that this book had the same amount of banter, flirtatiousness and humor as it’s predecessors but this one had such heartbreak. Head up if you haven’t read this one yet…have tissues nearby. You may need them. I know I did! (I’m still in a state of denial and I admit there was a moment where I was thinking “Why Elle, whhhhhy?!?!”) But I guess that’s a good sign that I’m emotionally and mentally invested in the story and the characters, huh?

Two thumbs up! An effortless read that will have you laughing. It’ll cure any reading slump or shitty day. Dean is the best. As a friend mentioned to me when I said Dean was my fave — everyone loves a (reformed) bad boy..

Lol. I don’t know about that. But I, for one do prefer the troublesome, alpha, not-so-squeaky clean characters.. *ahem ahem*

Amazing series. A must read. End of!

RATING: ♥♥♥♥½
