Kara Hildebrand (Two Book Pushers)
Most Likely to Score is Lauren Blakely's new forbidden romance. It's a standalone but we met these characters in Most Valuable Playboy. I love a great forbidden romance and add in some football and it's a winning combo. Lauren knows how to write sexy, fun, sweet and alpha men. Every time I meet a new Blakely hero I can't believe I love him as much, if not more than the one before him! I loved Cooper, I did. But Jones just does it for me. He's perfection. He's the perfect mix of sweet and sour, s ...more

I loved Jones and Jillian. Absolutely loved them, and their pets, and the rescue animals, the calendar and the kitten.

At this point, writing a review of a Lauren Blakely title and stating that I loved it is, well, a little anticlimactic. We all know I loved it, because she is a fabulous writer who writes the sex, the romance, the characters, the supporting characters, and the scenes perfectly. When you have an author who hits perfection as consistently as Lauren B

Jones Beckett is sexy, outgoing, flirtatious, and has BIG...hands...and he knows how to use them. He's the star receiver for the Renegades and his career is going well. But his reputation off the field could use a bit of rehab to dispel his party guy, womanizer image. He is need of direction not only from a new agent, but the team's PR Director is also stepping in to help.

Enter PR guru, Jillian Moore. She is beautiful, witty, personable, responsible, and hard working. And Jones has had the hots

Jillian Moore and Jones Beckett are the newest couple that Lauren Blakely has given us. A couple that should be off limits to one another, but when the chemistry is off the charts you can’t help feel that this needs to happen.
Jillian is an Director of Publicity for the Renegades and Jones Is a wide receiver for the Renegades, work should be the only thing that they do together but when they spend more time together they can’t help feel that they need more than a working relationship.

Most Likely To Score is yet another out of this world delightful story by Lauren Blakely about a love that can't be denied. Jones Beckett as the very talented wide receiver and former playboy would like nothing more than to clean up his image with the help of one Jillian Moore, publicist for his football team. These two have been secretly lusting for the other for more months than either of them wish to admit and as they find themselves spending more time together for the good of Jones's reputat ...more

Another hit by Lauren Blakely. Loved this story of Jones and Jillian. We met them both in Most Valuable Playboy and I couldn’t wait to read their story. Theirs is a forbidden attraction so they deny their feelings and both just play it off with witty flirts. Time and just life shows them there is more there. More than just lust. Now what? Risk it all for love? Read to find out. This is a touching story. It’s not about football although Jones is a pro football star. It’s a story of taking chances ...more
There’s honestly not a better way to ring in the new year than reading an upcoming release from one of my favorites. Jones and Jillian’s story has been one I’ve been crazy over and anticipating to read ever since Most Valuable Playboy . They’ve both given us enough peeks and teases into their budding relationship to get us hyped and overly excited for their own book. And reading it—indulging on yet another sensational Lauren Blakely book and finally getting my hands on Most Likely To Score—ha ...more

Dear Ms. Blakely,

Thank you so very much! Thank you for always providing me stories to entertain me, stories to provide me smiles, stories to make me swoon and stories to make me wish I could be one of your leading ladies. You are one of the most talented authors I know and I’m thankful that the start of 2018 starts us off with a bang...a banging book that is…literally! Now back to the story, Jones is incredible! He’s down to earth, charming and definitely swoon-worthy. Insert his perfect bombshe

Nobody writes a romantic comedy quite like Lauren Blakely. Not only are her books lighthearted and amusing, sufficiently fulfilling the comedy portion of a rom-com, but they’re everything you could want in a romance – sexy, sweet, and oh-so-swoon-worthy. Every time I dive into a new rom-com by Lauren Blakely, I’m blown away by how she takes a familiar trope and a new set of protagonists and creates a story filled-to-bursting with passion, humor, and heart. Her latest release, Most Likely to Scor ...more

Jones...what can I say about this football toting stud...he has big hands! Y'all know what big hands means right? Winky face...yup he is packing one great big long foot long (millions of winky face emojis)
Jones really is everything. He loves puppies so that is a no-brainer...sign me up! He has a effing cute lopsided grin...yes please! Ohhh and he has ABS for days...days people...I mean hello what more do you need to know about him? NOTHING all that just sealed the deal for boyfriend

4.5 stars!

If I could describe Jones and Jillian's relationship in two words, it'd be sizzling and adorable! Seriously, these two know great banter and fantastic flirting.

Since reading Most Valuable Playboy, I've been looking forward to Jones and Jillian's love story. It's obvious that Jones Beckett, the Renegades' wide receiver, has the hots for the team's amazing publicist Jillian Moore, but no one really takes him seriously on it, what with his penchant for sleeping and flirting with model

What a book to kick the year off with!
This one was slightly different, and I can't put my finger on why this is so. Not to say it was bad in any way because I think it was that delicious slow burn feel, which I love, that we don't normally get from this author. Of course, there is plenty of wit and humor that is expected and it is told in dual POV.

I personally prefer to read a book where the hero is NOT an alpha jerk and being all demanding. There is something sexy to be said when a guy has a v

If I had to sum up Most Likely to Score in one word it would be charming! Everything from the characters to their romantic journey is enchanting, and I couldn’t put it down.

One of the many reasons this story is captivating is the character of Jones! I loved him in Most Valuable Playboy, and my adoration of this man only grew by leaps and bounds during Most Likely to Score. He has the athletic build we have come to expect from our romantic her

Most Likely to Score by Lauren Blakely
Another feel-good curl up on a cold night masterpiece by Lauren Blakely. We love her unique writing style with our beloved characters providing their point of view on their secret crush. Crush would be an understatement but you get the jest.
We get to meet Jones who is a successful star receiver for a winning NFL team (San Francisco Renegades). He is also known for his escapades with many different women. Guess what? He wants to turn over a new leaf this sea

It’s the trifecta of a love story!! Football, HOT swoon-worthy alpha-male, and hot steamy love scenes between the sheets, what more could a girl ask for? Jones is a playboy wide receiver for a local NFL team looking to reform his womanizing ways. Jillian, is the smart, sassy, intelligent, and strong publicist for Jones’s team. Both Jillian and Jones see their romance as forbidden. But, is it really forbidden when the one person you really fall for is the one you want to spend your entire life wi ...more

I really, truly loved this story about NFL Renegades star player, Jones Beckett and the team publicist, Jillian Moore. Jones has been secretly attracted to Jillian ever since he first laid eyes on her when he started playing with the Renegades, but she acted unimpressed and disinterested. Nothing came of his interest and he moved on to other women, quickly earning himself a reputation as a good-time guy and a player, but Jillian always held a place in his heart even when he didn’t know it himsel ...more

What a way to start my reading for 2018?!

I just met my new favorite Blakely beau!! This story is a jam-packed combo of forbidden work place and friends to lovers romance.

I love the teasing, almost over the line, banter between Jillian and Jones. From seeing them in Most Valuable Playboy to their full-blown love affair in Most Likely to Score.

I was absolutely glued to this story. From the banter to the instant chemistry on so many levels.

Jillian is positively fantastic. I loved that some diver

Most Likely to Score is a standalone novel by one of my favorite all-time authors, Lauren Blakely. I have read every single word she has ever written and have loved them all. If you read Most Valuable Playboy then you should remember the flirty receiver of the Renegades, Jones Beckett and his favorite team publicist, Jillian Moore. Well, this is their forbidden romance...

Jones needs to clean up his reputation. Jillian needs a man to pose with puppies for a charity calendar. The camera happens to

I absolutely loved this story and I must say this is almost like the old stories that Lauren Blakely wrote. They sparked my love for reading once more and to start the year off with another great, passion filled book was such a joy. It flowed and kept me hooked with the want of knowing how this story would finish.

Jones was a brilliant led character and although a womanizing idiot, he was only that to play the part. On the inside, he was loving, compassionate and family was his main passion apart

Signature Lauren Blakely!! Most Likely to Score is fun, flirty, and sweet! Jillian and Jones are both amazing characters. They're determined to be the best of the best. She's driven to succeed as a publicist and he's riding the wave of being one of the best players in the NFL. But what matters most? Being at the top of your field or being with the one you love?

That's the basic premise of the story. I've oversimplified, of course, but I like that these two characters have life goals

I could not wait to get my grabby little hands on this book. I mean, come on! Sports Romance? It’s my go-to genre. Lauren Blakely? Can you say, “Auto buy author”? They are two great tastes that taste great together. They go together like Rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong. You get the picture.

I don’t know how she does it, but Lauren Blakely excels at writing from the male point of view convincingly and with tons of humor. True to form, Jones’s inner monologues are hi-larious. I loved his coc

Wide Receiver Jones is known as the fun/party guy in the team. The guy that's in the tabloids with a new girl every week. But he needs to stop that shit. Ever since his old agent took off with all of his clients' money, Jones needs to get a better public reputation - even if he didn't do anything wrong.

Oh wow, what's not to like about this one?

A sexy as hell wide receiver ( Jones Beckett), out to remake his image and drop his 'player' ways..

A smart, attractive, strong woman (Jillian Moore)--publicist for Jones's team, harboring a long standing crush but determined not to be just a notch on his bedpost...

A long professional friendship that suddenly turns hot, hot, hot once they really get to know each other and give in to their desires...

Plenty of sexual tension to go along with a really sweet
