WAGS naima simone

Scoring off the Field is book two in the WAGS series by Naima Simone. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone. I have not read the first book in this series but believe me, now I want to.

Dominic Anderson is the star quarterback for the Washington Warriors, one of the best teams in the NFL. Football is all Dom has ever known. His love for the game started when he was little with a shared love of all things football with his Dad. But when he lost his parents in a car cras

First things first, I love a good friends to lovers romance. If I were hard pressed to make a choice, it’s probably my favorite overused romance trope. We met Tennyson and Dominic in the previous WAGS book and I just knew their story was going to be good.

Tennyson Clark has loved Dominic Anderson in one form or another almost from the moment they met in foster care. While Dominic’s entry into the foster care system resulted from a tragic accident, Tennyson has never had anyone looking ou

Wowza! This book checked all my boxes!

Sexy.
Steamy.
With the right amount of angst thrown in!!

It's no secret that I love the two tropes equally: unrequited love and friends-to-lovers. Scoring Off Field has both. So yeah, I requested this baby so fast and [insert squee here] I was not disappointed.

Tennyson Clark has been in love with her best friend, Washington Warrior's quarterback, Dominic Anderson. Football was Dom's whole life. His other whole life is his best friend and personal assistant, Te

5 - "You're my world..." Stars!

I love me some Naima Simone, and the second book in her WAGs series delivered everything I expect from this authors contemporary erotic romance writing. Scoring off the Field was a winner from start to finish for me.

"I need to get a life outside of organizing yours… Find my own way. Stand on my own."

It was made pretty obvious in the previous book that Tennyson Clark, had more than just best-friendly feelings for Dom Anderson, so her deciding to step away from her

Tennyson Clark and Dominic Anderson are close. In fact, they are so close Tenny personally sees to Dominic's every need. He hires her as his Personal Assistant.

Tennyson has two degrees, is smart and beautiful but she needs a life. She has been living in the shadow of her BFF for too long. It's time to break the cord.

Dominic is an all American boy. He's a star quarterback, loves the easy loving ladies and doesn't do relationships. He's alpha strong with determination. The day Tennyson quits is

Wow! I absolutely LOVED this book!

Tennyson and Dominic met while they were both in foster care. Dom immediately recognized the devastation that lived in Tenny’s eyes and he vowed then and there to always protect her and prevent anything from wreaking havoc on her emotions in such a way again. Fourteen years later and she has spent years working as his PA but the time has come for her to walk away.

Being in love with Dom and knowing she will never have his romantic love in return is mor

Well damn...I find myself in a bit of a pickle here. There are so many things that I liked, but one glaring disappointment.

First off, I really liked the writing. This was my first Naima Simone book, but it certainly won't be my last. The writing is easy and sharp, the pacing is perfect, and the character development was spot on for a book under 200 pages.

I really liked Tennyson. She was so easy to relate to. From her insecurities to her fears to her crushing unrequited love for Do

This is ridiculously, scorchingly, HOT.

Naima Simone takes the tried and true “in love with my best friend” trope and sets it on FIRE. The sexual chemistry is never in doubt and I really enjoyed that.

Now, was I particularly enamored of Tenny having to see Dom act like a gigantic manwhore for years, while she essentially hadn’t hooked up with anyone (there’s a point made where she hasn’t had sex in years, while he hadn’t had sex in weeks)?

I stopped this @ 46% when we went on our trip. I'm finding I'm not all that eager to continue right now. I didn't feel their connection that much (except sexually), but it very well be my current mood. I might come back to it at another time -- but I'm moving on for now 🤷🏻♀ ...more

I said I'd come back to this review, but to be honest, I've pretty much forgotten most of what happened in the book. It wasn't that memorable. I think it's a good, fluffy friends to lovers romance and I enjoyed the dynamic (what I can remember of it) between Dom and Tenny, but something about them irked me for some reason. It's a bit slow-going, but when it heats up, it's super hot. Dom was a great hero, despite being a bit thick-headed regarding Tenny's feelings toward him. You can't NOT know y ...more

Tennyson Clark and Dominic Anderson met in foster care. His parents died in an accident when he was 12. She was put in the system at age 11 due to her mom’s mental illness. They immediately connect and Dom becomes her protector and best friend.

Well, Scoring Off the Field was an interesting read. I was enjoying the story until I wasn't anymore. Tenny and Dom could have been a power couple if they only tried a little harder to accept things for what they were.

Dom was a little overbearing, overprotective and arrogant. It took loosing the one steadfast person in his life to finally open his eyes to what was right in front of him. But, up until that time, it was all about him … his career, his life, his wants and his needs. He did play the

Scoring Off the Field by Naima Simone is the second steamy story in her football romance series WAGS (which stands for Wives and Girlfriends). This one stars a pair of longtime friends who become lovers, then have to decide where things really stand between them.

Tennyson Clark has been under Dominic Anderson’s care for years. Meeting in the foster child system, the older Dom had made it his mission to be there for Tennyson in all things. Eventually becoming a professional football player, he’d h

For my first Naima Simone book, I have to say I loved it! Friends to lovers are one of my favorite types of books.
This one is wonderfully written and the characters are great. I love when I can laugh out loud with a book.

Dom is a great guy. He is a football player and does everything so that he can stay the best. But he also makes sure that his life is better for his best friend Tenny so that he can pay it forward as it is.

Tenny follows Dom to Seattle when he is drafted there and becomes his

🤦

I think I'm becoming too jaded for contemporary romance, haha. Warning, this gets ranty. Here we get two major romance tropes: friends-to-lovers AND unrequited love mixed with a famous footballer hero and a meek, fragile heroine.

Do I dislike these things in a romance story? No, I do not. In fact, I love it (well not the pushover heroine part, but I digress). I just need something a little extra. I'm on that never ending quest for magic in a love story. The stuff that makes you laugh,

There were a few factors that came into play when it came to this book.
1) The Cover. It’s hot. Plain and simple.
2) I’m kind of a sucker for the friends to lovers trope.
3) An author I stal..*cough* follow was giving out much praise for the first book in the series (which I have not read...yet).
So with all of that thrown into the mix I decided I NEEDED to get my hands on this one and I DEVOURED it.

I did.

5 Star Review Scoring Off The Field (WAGS #2) by Naima Simone

Naima Simone is a relatively new author to me and I have to ask myself why that is. This was a relatively quick read but one that ticked all the boxes for me. This is a friends to lovers story which reeled me in from the first chapter.

Although this is a stand alone, I feel you may get more enjoyment if you were to read the first book in the series prior to reading this one as it will give you an insight into Dom and Tenny’s back story

This book had me crying SAD/HAPPY tears! I loved it! The characters are gritty and real. They each have their own set of issues stemming from childhood. So much went into this touching story of friends to lovers. I wrapped myself up in it and couldn't put it down until I knew what happened. I loved book one in this series, and this one is even Better.

What do you get when you combine one of my favorite romance tropes (friends-to-lovers) with one of my favorite authors (Naima Simone)? Scoring off the Field!!! A hot, steamy friends-to-lovers romance that will have you glued to the pages and falling head over heels in love with its characters. Oh, and since this love story is by Naima, you are guaranteed to laugh a few times and possibly shed a tear or two.

Scoring Off The Field is a friends to lovers story that I quite enjoyed. It's hot, steamy and has a bit of unrequited longing.

I loved all of that including the characters but what kept me submerged was the author's ability to create vivid mental pictures that engaged the other senses.

At the beginning of the book she described the hero, Dom's scent and all I could think was my nose could live there, right in the crook of his neck because he smells so good. I couldn't literally smell him, he isn

This is a friends-to- lovers romance.

Now Dom is an NFL quarterback while Tennyson is his personal assistant. However, Tennyson is finally ready to move on and have her own life, follow her own passion – and, okay, she’s tired of watching his hook-ups leaving the house early in the morning. Especially becaus
