However, the FBI has the life coach in the witness protection program as he will soon testify against the mob. His brother Chase, an FBI agent, has filled in with Luke's clients, who are driving him crazy with their loser's attitude and self pity; he reaches the point of scorn that he fears for the future of the human race. That is until he meets Sammi. As Luke he coaches her; as Chase he dates her. He knows he owes her the truth, but fears her reaction as he pities himself ever since his L word mantra switched from logical to lovable.-----------------
HOW TO SCORE is an amusing over the top of Black Mesa madcap romance filled with zany incidents and an eccentric cast including a former by the book FBI agent who finds love with Ms Klutz; if he can survive dating her. The story line is played totally for laughs so that secondary players have specific pigeon holed roles to enhance the comedy. Although readers should leave plausibly at the beginning, fans will relish this laugh out loud throwback to the 1930s screwball romantic comedies updated to twenty-first century Oklahoma.-----------

When his brother Luke goes into the witness protection program, FBI Special Agent Chase Jones agrees to take on his brother's life coach clients until he returns. Not al all thrilled with the idea, Chase listens and advises Luke's whiny and pathetic clients. But then, Sammi calls. Chase finds the phone only rule out the window when Sammi's sexy voice raises his body temp through the lines. Museum curator Sammi Matthews has decided she is in dire need of help. After giving one date a black eye and cracking another's ribs, Sammi calls upon the life coach for guidance, before she kills the next man! The phone sessions work, because soon she meets an FBI agent who seems to be everything she's ever desired. With "Luke" coaching her by day, and "Chase" dating her by night, this crazy combination is doomed to blow up in his face. But.how does Chase tell Sammi the truth without back-tracking all her progress, breaking all his bones, and worse yet, breaking her heart?
Following along the lines of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Maid in Manhattan, this book would make an excellent film. From cover to cover you are completely engrossed in the characters and the wild scheme behind their meeting. The plot flowed smoothly and was well paced. The characters were relatable and endearing. I liked the sub-plot between Horace, Arlene, and Walter, too! What a phenomenal and memorable ending, as well. You won't be disappointed. I'm fully blaming Robin Wells for my dark circles, as I stayed up late two nights in a row reading this. Not that I'm complaining, (smile).
How to Score will have you laughing out loud, forgoing your outside life to pursue reading, and rekindling your love of romance again.
