3 Star Review

I hated to give this low of a rating, but there was so much going on in this book, I had a hard time with it. Scoring the Quarterback by S.M. Soto had a lot going on.

The phrase “I couldn’t care less” and “Bar and Grille” were way overused and all this book was missing was a secret baby with all the different tropes running through it. There were so many issues with these characters and honestly the only ones I remotely liked were Natalia and Aliza, and I stopped liking Natalia after she continued being a doormat with no chance of growing a backbone in sight.

Luke was tolerable at first. Hot college jock destined for the NFL falling for the geeky girl, or so I thought. The way he pursued her, I thought it was an insta-love, I was wrong, sort of. I never got the frenemy to lover vibe. He pursued her; she was indifferent. Just as I thought it would change and get a little deeper into their “relationship”, he would either tell her he still sleeps with anything that walked (which, ok they weren’t dating, but really? Why would you tell her this?) and he kept playfully calling her hershey squirts, again, really?

Then when they started dating, he was sweet, she was smitten. Then he did the most unforgivable thing EVER. At this point, I was thinking Yes, this book is going to end on her HEA not being with him. But in the end, the doormat that she is took him back!

*SPOILER ALERT* Sorry, cheating is an auto no go for me. He constantly treated her badly and she either accepted she could do no better or just didn’t care.

Although this wasn’t my cuppa, there are TONS of people out there that like the cheating aspect of books. And even thought I didn’t necessarily like this book, it will not deter me from reading more by this author. Get it and decide for yourself.

Luke Caldwell has three abhorrent qualities to him:
1) He’s a pig-headed jock.
2) He’s a grade A asshole with the biggest, overbearing ego.
3) He’s a manwhore.

These three qualities alone should’ve had me running for the hills. I tried to steer clear of him, I really did, but it was an impossible feat. Luke Caldwell was nothing if not persistent, and the way he bulldozed through my life, not taking no for an answer is proof of it.

I tried to stay away from him.

I wanted to hate him. But I couldn’t. Luke was nothing like the idiot jock I pegged him out to be. He became a friend, a confidant, and after one unforgettable night, he became so much more.

Whatever this is between us, it’s impossible to ignore. I just hope when all is said and done, I won’t be burned by the college bad boy.
