I lived life on my terms, keeping people at a distance for a reason.
I rebelled every chance I got, shutting down any sensibilities that remained.
But then danger swallowed me whole, and all I wished for was a different life.
A life where I listened to the concerns of those who loved me.
A life that had meaning.
A life where I could follow my dream of becoming a designer.

Book one left us on a huge cliff hanger and one that had our minds rambling all over the place. When the truth is revealed Cara is livid, but as much as she is irritated with Ford, she can’t help but understand how their lives could be in so much danger. Who would want to harm them and for what reason? With a little more understanding, Cara tries to be more considerate towards Ford and what his job entails. Or is she trying to be more indulgent for different reasons? Ford knows the persona that ...more

Part one ended with a huge cliffhanger, and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say I was desperate for book two. I had some theories about several subplots in book one, and it was a nice surprise to see I was right about all of them. I hadn't guessed the identity of the person making the threats that had necessitated the bodyguards in the first place, and that was an interesting surprise - something I think I should have worked out!

The slow burn romance between Ford and Cara heated up big ti

Dang, it took me a few days to wrap my head around this book. The plot has so many twists and turns you can’t help but be consumed. When Cara finally reveals her guarded secret, we get a better understanding of why she acts like a spoiled diva. Her past has haunted her for so long, she doesn’t know any other way to deal with her ghosts. When Ford’s past is revealed even further we understand why he’s hard as stone and is always guarded. In the first book there was a slow burn between Cara and Fo ...more

I was given this ARC by S. Nelson for a honest review. I really enjoyed "The Score", the second book in the two part series. The first book left you high and dry with anticipation for the second book.
After an incident that scared Cara into reevaluating her past choices, she finally realized that Ford was there to protect her from any threats. With Ford and Cara finally in agreement, it only brought them closer together. One night after ending up in a night of passion, Cara pressured Ford into re

MY RATING: 2.5 Stars
TITLE: The Score
AUTHOR: S.Nelson
SERIES: Massey Security #2
RELEASE DATE: 8 July 2019
CLIFFHANGER: No

The score is book 2 of the Massey Security Duet which continues Cara and Ford’s story from book one The Assignment. You definitely have you read book one as this is a continuation of that book.
This might be yet another book that everybody loves and I'm just like:

A solid 4/5 star book!

The Score picked up at the dramatic cliffhanger scene where The Assignment left off... Cara kidnapped and staring into the face of Ford who facilitated it all. Was he the bad guy? Was this all a ruse to get to her? I was so anxious to find out what Ford's intentions were with the set up.

I loved the direction the author took this story, steering away from the need for Emily and Cara to have security detail and diving more into the chemistry and connection between the Massey

I received this ARC from the author.

Book 1 ended on a cliffhanger so I am extremely grateful for having gotten to not have to wait all the way until its release date.

This was a fantastic read!!! I read it in one sitting, from night until 2 am. It’s such an addictive read. The characters draw you in.

I said in book 1 that my favorite thing was the slow burn between the characters and how there was no rushed romance. In fact, in book 1, there was no actual romance between the characters beyond att

The Score is the Massey Security Duet conclusion, so it would make sense that you can't start with this book, but just in case people still don't get that memo I'll state it again, YOU MUST READ The Assignment (Book 1) FIRST! This book starts right off where the Book 1 cliffy left off at, and boy did that ending seriously mess with my head a great deal. After I sat on it for a bit waiting for this book to come out, I started to wonder if this is how it would play out, and yes, I'm being so very ...more

“Book two in the Massey Security Duet, this continues the story left in book one “The Assignment”. I recommend you to read the first book to be able to fully appreciate this book.

In book one, we met two sisters, Cara and Emily, that desperately needed protection from an anonymous threat. We also met the brothers assigned to protect the girls, Owen and Ford Massey.

Owen is committed to protected the volunteering and quiet sister, Emily. While Ford is assigned to the rebellious and free spirit gir

From an alluring cover to a magnetic book, The Score left me feeling fulfilled. I was absorbed into this story from book one and after a cliffhanger that left me reeling, I didn’t know how I was going to cope reading this book but I was still counting down the days until I could get the answers I so desperately needed.

I don’t know about you guys but I found The Score a much easier read than the Assignment. There was more depth to the characters and answers as to why Cara is the way she is. Cara

***The Score is S. Nelson second book in the Massey Security Duet. If you haven't read book one, The Assignment then I will stop you from reading the rest of this review as it could have potential spoilers for you.


After the bomb at the end of book one, I was anxious for The Score to come out. At the beginning of the book, S. Nelson did not disappoint with the surprises and keeping me on the edge of my seat. I don't want to give to muc

The Score by S. Nelson is book Two in the Massey Security Duet. This continues the story of Ford and Cara exactly where we were left in the first book 'The Assignment' so you really need to read the first book to fully enjoy this one. As we learned in the first book, Owen and Ford Massey are Ex-Marines who have went forward to open a Security Company. The brother's have agreed to take on Walter Dessoye as a client. Mr. Dessoye is a famous director who has received threats on his family. So Owen ...more

The Score by S. Nelson is book 2 in the Massey Security duet. This continues Ford and Cara's story. Book 1 left off on a huge cliffhanger and book 2 picks up where book 1 left off.
Without giving much away, when reading about Cara's hidden secret, my heart hurt for her. Her past has haunted her for so long that she doesn't know how to deal. There's an "incident " where if Ford hadn't been around, things could have gone bad for Cara. This is where Cara really starts looking at the choices she mak

This is the 2nd part of this duet from the talented S Nelson and after the cliffhanger from #1 I was waiting for this one!

S. Nelson has written a flawless story with her brilliant twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat with this gripping page turner. I honestly didn't see some of the twists coming.

I have loved watching Cara's character develop throughout this duet. Her connection and romance with Ford is a beautiful slow burn romance that builds up in this part of the duet into

The Massey Security Duet is a MUST read!!!

The Assignment, book one in the series, was one of those edge-of-your-seat reads. It was intense, gripping, and masterful. S. Nelson kept me glued to the pages, all the way to the breathtaking cliffhanger. The Score, on the other hand, didn't have quite the same intensity, but it was sooo dang good. Everything fell into place and it all started to make sense.

First of all, The Score is part of a duet and you MUST read The Assignment to understand what is going on in this book. The Assignment ended on a cliffhanger that made me want to throw my book. But I don't feel that way about this book. Cara, who was extremely selfish and catty in the first story, really grew in character in The Score. Ford remains a very hot and stubborn body guard who's very attracted to his charge. There are some twists and turns, but we find out what's behind Cara's attitude ...more

The second instalment of Cara and Ford picks up right where the first book finished! I’m not going to say how as it’s all part of the mystery that will soon be revealed, but if you haven’t already read the assignment I’d recommend doing so and then getting stuck into this book as well❣

Cara and Ford aren’t the only ones in this story getting their romance on. Secrets are revealed and some astonishing developments I didn’t see coming😜

This is the 2nd part of this duet, and after the huge cliff-hanger at the end of #1, this riveting story continues leading to the perfect finale. Cara and Ford’s story is a slow burn, but eventually neither can deny the chemistry between them. This is a well written flawless story, which is intense, emotional, and with twists, suspense, drama, secrets, and unexpected surprises.

The Score is the thrilling finale in the Massey Security Duet series. The first book, The Assignment, left us with a shocking cliffhanger. In this second book, there are some totally unexpected twists that blew me away. The secrets and lies that are revealed will keep you intrigued through the entire book. I really enjoyed the characters and all their imperfections. I especially like the personal growth that Cara went through as this story unfolded. Another fantastic book by S. Nelson!

Another Great Book!

I liked this one a lot better than the first in the duet, and it flowed much better! I liked the pacing a lot too, no instalove, although when Cara and Ford got together, they were super cute, so I definetely wish there were more scenes between them. I also wish I had an epilogue to see into the future where they're at in their relationship together. Overall, great duet, always kept me interested, and can't wait for more of Nelson's novels!

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013.

Her passion to create was overwhelming, and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can.
