Review: Score (Skin in the Game #1) by Christine Bell

Football players s*ck.

A bunch of cocky, lying cheaters who think they’re god’s gift to women, just like my dear old dad. I’ve managed to avoid them my whole college career until now >.< I just got assigned to be wide receiver Callum Samskevitch’s physical therapist.
Pro: It will be great to add to my resume.
Con: I have to see him. Every. Single. Day.
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?

What I thought about Score

Bee is in the last year of her physical therapy program and when she gets assigned to one of the football jocks rehabbing from a knee injury, she gets a little bit more than she bargained for.  Cal is a good guy, and I liked that about him.  He's got some insecurities because of his injury, and Bee has some concerns about his motives, too but that doesn't stop them from falling in love.


There's a nice connection from these two characters and Christine Bell gives us a nice slow burn between these two, making the big moment all that sweeter.

Although the story doesn't break any new ground as far as the trope goes, Cal and Bee are both engaging characters, the pacing is just right to make you keep turning those pages, and the writing worked for me.


A very pleasant afternoon read.  Looking forward to seeing where this series goes.
