Which would be fine...if he wasn't so dang sexy...

Cal

Football is all I've got, so when Coach saddles me with some frumpy PT student with a chip on her shoulder, all I can think is doom. I don't have time for this. Not now. Not when my dreams are on the verge of being crushed. All that should matter right now is ball. So why can't I stop imagining what Bee Mitchell is hiding beneath those baggy sweatshirts? "

The ending could have been better. Still a very funny and hot read.

Great story, worth every penny.

I loved Cal. Okay, he was pretty obsessed with getting his knee better and getting himself back on the field--but it's more than understandable when we hear his story. And his single-minded shove-everything-else-aside-I'm-not-going-to-listen-to-anyone attitude gradually faded away as he worked with Bee on his rehab. And he was such a great guy--doing everything he could to show Bee who he really was, trying to support her, especially with her family--prime book boyfriend material in tight football pants, definitely. Though I'm still not sure some of those...maneuvers that they engaged in were really a good idea, in the interest of getting him field-ready and all... ;) Bee was a fun character, and very likable--though her football-player bias went a bit too far. How could it have taken her so long to see that Cal was nothing like her dad? It was frustrating at times--but fortunately she pulled her head out of her butt at the end and made up for a lot of the I-want-to-give-her-a-good-shake moments. The crazy ex-girlfriend drama was a bit extreme, but it did help to make Bee's turnaround believable, especially toward her mom. Overall this was a fun sports-themed new adult read, and I'm looking forward to more in the series. (Because "skin in the game"? How can you not want more of that? ;)) Rating: 4 stars / B+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Christine Bell is one of my favorite authors. Books about college age characters are not my favorite—at least they weren't. Score is among my most enjoyable reads. I fell for both Cal and Bee immediately. Don't let the “football hero” tag fool you. This guy is so much more. Because Bee has one of those as a father—Cal has a tough job proving it to her. But she is a captive audience. As a major part of her grade she is assigned Cal as her therapy patient. Bee's name has nothing to to with being a Barbie—unlike sorority skin and bone figures. Nope, she's a strong young woman, with an athletic body. After being told she doesn't compare by too many people even she doesn't see herself with Cal. This one is charming, funny, touching with real problems. It has some evil in the mix and lets not forget the steam (literally in this one). There is plenty here to keep them apart, with his injury will he keep his dream that is so much more to him? If he does get to play again, where will that leave Bee? Can she see beyond the man her father is to the man Cal is and stop the comparisons? Will her mother's life push her away to avoid the same? Then the evil surprise—it could make all the other problems obsolete. Don't miss this series starter, stand alone. A very strong recommend from me. Don't miss it. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

A fantastic NA sports story that hooked me right from the start. Cal and Bee are fantastic characters and so much more than they appear at first glimpse. Bee is a physical therapy student who has the misfortune of being assigned to help Cal Samskevitch, the school's star wide receiver, get his knee back into game shape. Bee's opinion of football players is a little less than dirt due to dear old dad. Cal has his whole future hanging on his football career but there is a spark between him and Bee and he's determined to get her to see him rather than just the football playing him. Exceptional writing and characters make this a book you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
