Review – Scored – Lily Harlem

06 Sep

Author: Lily Harlem

Book Description:
Okay, so I eat, sleep and breathe football and reporting the beautiful game is my dream career. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have time for a major crush on the England captain, Lewis Tate. The bloke is sex on legs, hot with a capital H. Add in his awe-inspiring talent, his brooding good looks and what’s not to lust after?

So my excitement is sky-high as I set off with the official press team to cover England’s battle for the European Cup. But when a series of unfortunate, or as it turns out fortunate events, attracts Tate’s attention my way, who am I to say no?

Add in a misogynistic manager, an over-zealous colleague, two blue silk ties and some incredible ball-handling skills and it becomes clear the road to victory, for me, will be an intensely erotic journey. Determined to savor every moment, I hang onto my sanity as best I can while living the fantasy and wondering if it can ever become reality. Because once Lewis Tate has taken me to heaven and back, its clear no one else will ever compare.

This is the first time that I’ve read anything by Lily Harlem, but not the first time I’ve heard of her. One of my good virtual friends on goodreads, loves her stuff and so her name has come up in recommendations several times. So when I was looking for a book featuring soccer and her book showed up on the Amazon listopia, I figured it was time to give her a try.

I almost immediately fell in love with Nicky – she reminded me a lot of myself when it came to sports, because there were some that I used to follow passionately. Although, I can’t say that I do so much anymore…unfortunately. She also works in pretty much a male dominated career field, not so much the journalism, but the sports writing, the same as me (mine being the military) and she managed to get herself into insane scrapes…yea, well, we won’t go there for me…lol! I loved the passion that Ms Harlem was able to put into her writing and you could also tell that she had done her research into various soccer tournaments because there was an air of knowledge portrayed that seemed genuine.

And Lewis…oh Lewis…ummm, yeah, I love a man who can handle balls…(snerk!). Not going to say much more on that topic, otherwise we might hit an x-rating (well, not quite, but the possibility exists). Either way, I can’t wait to read more by this author in the future and hope others check her out. 4 stars.

Unfortunately, for you non-kindle readers, it is only available electronically right now – but hopefully will be in print in the future
