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.”
A fun & sexy New Adult Romance (age 17+)
"Scoring Wilder" Reviews
4 'she did it' stars!!!
She believed she could, so she did
I'M SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR!! I LOVED THIS BOOK WITH ALL MY HEART!!!
1. I'm a soccer player so hence a 10% of my happiness towards this book
2. Liam Wilder is 80% of my love for this book.
3. Kinsley's dry humor and her thoughts are 5% of my love for this book.
4. Becca overall is the other 5% of my love for this book.
Kinsley is a nineteen-year-old soccer player who may have it rough when it comes to relationships and love, but her first love never let her down, soccer. She's a freshman in college and is trying to follow her dreams and be invited to play in the Olympics, but Kinsley wants one thing that can jeopardize her college career and her dream. What is it? You mean, whom? Oh, it's Liam Wilder.
“He’s my coach. My off-limits coach. He’s like chocolate, and I’m like pickles. They shouldn’t be mixed...
Unless...chocolate-covered pickles? No.”
You're wondering what the big deal about Liam Wilder is? He's the twenty-five-year-old tattooed bad boy star player for the LA stars. The media gives him a bad rep but on the field, no one can deny that he's a one of a kind ball player, but he's also now....Kinsley's soccer coach. Having Liam as Kinsley's coach meant:
1. He's off-limits
2. Don't have dirty thoughts about him (impossible not to)
3. He's off-limits
4. You can't touch him (how could you not?)
5. He's off-limits
6. You can't have any relationships with him (FUCK THESE RULES)
7. HE'S OFF LIMITS
Being the mature, witty, responsible, funny and beautiful Kinsley as that, she is.. she broke all those rules. The chemistry between Kinsley and Liam were electric, and everyone saw it. They had their ups and downs, but you knew that they wanted to be with each other, but they knew the consciouses that would have came with it. Liam and Kinsley were in the spotlight now and had to be careful with everything they did. Liam had his rep to look after and Kinsley had her future/dream to protect.
"You're acting like a child," he hissed, his grey eyes flashing darker than usual.
I leaned in close and narrowed my eyes. "Funny. When you were on top of me on Saturday you didn't think I was a child."
Yes, they were forbidden. Yes, it went against the rules. Yes, Kinsley dealt with the consciouses. Yes, Liam was worth it. Yes, I want Liam to myself. Yes, I want to slap Tara and Josh. Yes, Becca is the cutest thing ever. And, yes, I love this book and will say it a million times.
This was one of those reads where when you start it you don't want to put it down, and when you do put it down, you just want to pick it back up and continue from where you left off. I LOVE when the heroine is an athlete because I'm able to relate to her so much more considering I'm an athlete as well. I could relate with Kinsley in so many ways, and I loved the type of person she was and how she dealt with situations. If we're completely honest if we were in her shoes we would have done the same thing ;) Liam is cool, calm and collected but has a playful side which adds onto his sexy side and whenever he speaks you just want to hang on him like a koala and claim him as your own.. Lucky Kinsley.
He shook her hand, and I thought I saw a little blush across his tan cheeks. "Hello, Mrs. Bryant."
"My daughter has talked my ear off about you for the past few weeks now," she admitted, and then I was the one with flushed cheeks.
Liam's cool gaze slide toward me.
"She's exaggerating, I hardly mention you at all," I winked.
Liam glanced back to my mom wearing a cheeky half-smile. "That's not surprising to hear. Your daughter is definitely in love with me, Mrs. Bryant. She hasn't told me yet, but she will soon."
*THUMP* whats that? My heart falling from chest because cuteness overload.
One of the MAIN things I loved about this book were the dialogue and banter. Every character (or side character) said something funny to me, and I honestly loved everything that came out of their mouths. I sometimes love reading books where it isn't always serious and that we can laugh and just enjoy the book without thinking someone is going to die or drama along the way. There was drama in the story don't get me wrong, but I liked how the author lightened the mood with Becca's outbursts or Kinsley's comments and thoughts.
The moment Becca spoke, Liam's hand retracted from my back as if he was awakening to the fact that he was touching me almost inappropriately. Oh, it was inappropriate. His hand had been resting just two inches above my shorts. Which is above five inches above my vagina. So... yeah, he was basically touching my vagina.
I ran over to open my bathroom door and shouted for Emily. "Em, are you sure you don't want to come with us? We can put together a cute costume really quick!" I knew the answer would be no. She'd told us yesterday when we invited her to go shopping that she was going to stay in and Skype with her boyfriend. We had, of course, made fun of her for having Skype sex, and she blushed for an hour straight. Seriously, it was too easy.
"Yeah, I'm sure. Call me if you guys need a ride or anything!" Emily answered, already sitting at her computer with Skype open.
"Fiiiine, but don't forget to use protection.. you don't want your computer getting a virus,"
I don't even know why you guys continued to read this review all the way to the end. You should have purchased the book probably after the first paragraph. What are you doing!? STOP READING AND GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS BOOK!!!
"Wildcats on three," Coach Davis instructed, and then counted down.
"Wildcats!" we all screamed together in unison

I scored with this book. I was looking for a NA genre book that would have some fun college drama in it. I needed to change up what I've been reading lately because everything I’ve read has been sad. A person can only handle so many sad books before it starts to affect their mood.
Kinsley is a the hottest up and coming college soccer player. As a freshman she has a promising career in soccer. The sports world is rooting for her to make the Olympic team. Unfortunately, her personal life is not the best in the guy department. Both her former boyfriends cheated on her, not with each other, which has left her a little weary of the male species.
Liam Wilder is a professional soccer player who has a bad rep. His sponsors want him to clean up his act. To please his sponsors he has volunteered to help the college women’s soccer team get ready for their upcoming season. When I think of HOT soccer players my mind always goes to David Beckham. Since I was picturing David Beckham as Liam...I found this younger picture of him since Liam is 25 years old.
Things begin to heat up when Liam and Kinsley find they have an undeniable attraction to each other. Just one problem… date the coach and you will be booted off the team.
Kinsley and her teammate, Becca, come up reasons why she shouldn’t think about her hot volunteer coach:
(1)Cheated on by two ex boyfriends.
Conclusion: guys are dicks. Don’t date them.
(2)GOALS: Olympics and ULA training schedule -> NO TIME FOR GUYS!
(3)He’s COMPLETELY off limits. (Kicked off team off-limits.) BACK AWAY FROM HIM STAT.
(4)He’s a badboy. (Reformed or not) Refer back to #1 and multiply it by ten.
(5)He doesn’t like me. And/or actively hates me.
Scoring Wilder is a fun sports romance. I’m a fan of sports movies especially ones based on true stories. But don’t get me wrong, I do like those fun ones too -> STICK IT and BRING IT ON. Scoring Wilder was a combo of those two movies with MEAN GIRLS thrown in. If you’re looking for a sexy sports book with some college drama thrown in then pick up this book.

Dear R.S. Grey,
You have won a place among my favorite authors' shrine.From now on I shall worship thee daily and brainwash my friends to read your books.(More like threaten them but that's a minor detail.)
I could go on and on and on blabbering about Scoring Wilder,but I decided to highlight the reasons you should read it/the reasons I loved it/the reasons it left me in the end dancing like this
Ok fine,it was more like this
(don't get your hopes up mates,there's still blabbering,it's just well-structured)
-Game of Thrones,Hunger Games and Harry Potter references.
If only we actually were in Harry Potter.I’d totally Crucio her ass.Yeah, that’s right, I’d use one of the Unforgivable Curses.Come at me,Ministry of Magic.
-Great (and not so great) characters.I've saved a special entry for Liam and Kinsley,but the secondary characters were amazing as well.I adored Becca,she is the friend I always wanted,funny and supportive and a little crude sometimes,with a big big heart and an even bigger mouth.Emily,Penn,Coach Davis,even the mothers were kickass!Of course there were certain somebodies *cough*Josh*cough* that gave a new meaning to the word asshole,but they added to the story!And Tara,hell reserves special seats for people like you.
-Sweet,funny,sexy.RS Grey's golden rule applies there perfectly.My state while reading Scoring Wilder varied between giggling,awwwing and blushing.There were side symptoms as well,like erratic heartbeat and shortness of breath,and I'm pretty sure I spend a great amount of time like this
Can I say I’m a reformed bad boy without sounding like a tool?
But he is a bad boy.And a good boy,all at once.Surprisingly caring,extremely understanding,off the charts sexy,candy lover,gets-you-pregnant-with-a-stare-sexy (wait,I already mentioned sexy whatever it's worth repeating),tattooed soccer player.Anyone else who wants to have his babies?
-It would be unfair to finish this list without mentioning Kinsley.I absolutely loved her,besides her smart humor and her love for Liam and her friends,she was dedicated to her goals,always wanting to become better and driven by passion and determination.She wanted something,she got it.Period.
And now you (yes you who are reading this and wonder when I'll finally shut up) go.get.the.book!
PS Scarlett it's a tie between Liam and Julian,can I please have them both?

“He’s my coach. My off-limits coach. He’s like chocolate and I’m like pickles. They shouldn’t be mixed...
Once again R.S. Grey has impressed me with her writing skills! Scoring Wilder is a sweet and funny romantic tale about two individuals who decide that the forbidden is worth the risk. With a background setting in the college soccer world, this book had me sighing as much as it had me laughing out loud. Consequences be damned when it comes to scoring the hot and sexy Coach Wilder!
Nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant may have shit luck when it comes to the love department; however, she is one rock star of a soccer player. Now a freshman in college, Kinsley has a bright future ahead of her in the soccer world as well as a shot at trying out for the Olympics. Her life is right on track and she is focused. Nothing is going to stop her from accomplishing her goals, even the bitchy seniors who seem to have it out for her. That is until Liam Wilder walks into the picture. The tattooed bad-boy soccer star has Kinsley thinking about the forbidden, something that is throwing her way of course.
Twenty-five-year-old Liam Wilder is a walking talking ad for all that is sexy deliciousness. As a professional soccer player, he has definitely lived in the fast lane for a few years. His womanizing and bad-boy ways have caught up to him and no one will touch him with a ten foot pole for publicity ads. He has to clean up his act and a great way to do that is to help coach the ULA girls soccer team. At least this was a great idea until he meets Kinsley. With so much at stake, why does she have to be so tempting?
"In the big picture of life, Liam was a dot on the timeline, yet he was capable of wiping away everything that could have come after him."
“I’m not afraid of a little competition, Kinsley. I play to win.”
A relationship between Kinsley and Liam is strictly forbidden but that doesn’t stop the pair from sharing some sizzling hot chemistry. Their innate attraction for one another soon becomes impossible to ignore so things progress from ignoring and denying what is between them to stolen moments and the beginnings of a prohibited romance. Both Kinsley and Liam have much to lose if they are discovered. Is it worth the risk especially when their attractions turns into something more profound?
This book is a low-angst sweet and fun romance. I loved every word. Both Liam and Kinsley were highly likable characters and I loved watching how their relationship developed. They have a lot going against them diving into such an off-limits relationship especially being in the public eye due to soccer. I simply loved the fact that you have two characters who fall for one another and even though things are not easy, nothing gets to over-the-top with the conflict. No crazy bull-shit that is present in most books in the new adult genre.
This book was also genuinely funny. I loved all the banter between the characters and Ms. Grey introduces some memorable secondary characters that add to all the hilarity in the book. With this being stated, I will admit that what made this book stand out for me was Kinsley. She was such a great heroine – funny, strong, confident and a little bit quirky. I loved her! This book is written solely in Kinsley POV so we get a lot of her inner dialogue. But damn was this awesome! She had me in stitches with all the ramblings that went through that head of hers.
“Dear Mr. Klein or should I call you Calv,
It’s me again, Kinsley. Thanks so much for designing your underwear line. If you ever need a focus group for future designs, I’d like to be included. I’m a very good package inspector with excellent attention to detail. Attached you will find my list of references.”
“His hand had to be resting two inches above my shorts. This was about five inches above my vagina. So…yeah, he was basically touching my vagina.”
See what I mean? Hilarious!
All in all, Scoring Wilder was an absolutely fantastic read about finding the courage to go after what your heart desires. Taking a chance on love is not always easy; however, sometimes the risk is worth it. R.S. Grey has written another winner in my opinion!
***An advance reading copy of Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
Don't hate me but this was really bad.
I admit that I picked this book up mainly because I'm huge fan of forbidden romance stories. Imagine my disappointment while reading this book. It has to be the least exciting story about forbidden love ever. Where was the real thrill? The situations that would make my heart speed up with adrenalin? This story made me feel nothing. It's not enough to tell me how characters are feeling if I cannot feel it myself while reading.
Do I sound harsh? I'm sorry. I don't want to hurt anyone. This book was just not for me at all. All the drama surrounding "romance" between main protagonists was annoying and boring to read about. I'm putting romance in quotations marks on purpose because there was no believable romantic connection in this novel. I just wasn't buying the fact that Liam and Kinsley would risk so much for sex or flirt since they basically knew nothing about each other but how they look...
And just a little reminder at the end. This is purely my subjective opinion. What didn't work for me, may be loved by others. Afterall, many of my friends did enjoy this book so I would recommend to check other reviews before deciding if you want to give Scoring Wilder a chance or not.
