He knows how to score, on and off the ice
Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.
It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

My The Score Review . . .
I flippin' love this series. How can you not? We get Elle Kennedy, hockey boys and great banter. This time around we finally get Dean Di-Laurentis's story. For the first two books Dean has been all flash and show. He never settles down and loves to screw. Allie is Hannah's best friend and has been part of the books as a supportive role but finally gets the real deal that she's always been striving for.
Allie starts off licking her wounds when she breaks up with her long time boyfriend. The last thing she expected was to find herself in Dean's bed. Especially because she does NOT do one night stands and that is all Dean is good for. Dean and little Dean have a pretty sweet life, nothing too deep but he likes to live and enjoy each moment. We all knew there was going to be a story behind Dean's players ways so when Allie makes him want more we immediately start to cheer for him.
Allie has always been a settle down type of girl but there is something about Dean that she tries to go against her nature and have a fling. Especially since Dean and Allie's chemistry is through the roof! What first starts as a fling turns into so much more. As Dean finally starts to settle his world gets rocked causing his sweet life to explode. But can he step up when he needs to?
I love all these boys. Their relationship and banter is amazing, and the ending has us on pins and needles waiting for Tucker's story. Oh my!!! I can't friggin' wait. I adored Dean and Allie together. Even though they shouldn't techincally work together, but they do on so many levels. Together they balance each other out and bring out the best in everyone, even little Dean. Love this series and can't wait for more.
Loved it! 4.5 Fell for little Dean thumbs up!
