Release Blitz for Scoring the Player by Samantha Lind

Title: Scoring the Player
Series: Indianapolis Eagles #2
Author: Samantha Lind

Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Release Date: February 8, 2018

Cocky, man whore, player…. Those are all ways I have been
described by the media and countless women. Are they accurate? Possibly. But,
that’s all I let the media see of me, Brian Kelly, defensive player for the
Indianapolis Eagles Hockey team. I have no intentions of settling down and
changing the media’s perception of me. I can’t tell if women are after me for
my bank account, the status symbol of being with a professional athlete, or if
they really want me for me. Then I meet her. The one woman who doesn’t let my
charm affect her or cause her to jump directly into my bed. Can I possibly
change my ways and settle down?
Grounded, selfless, giving…Those are all the ways my family
and friends have described me. Are they right? Possibly. But, I’m so much more,
and need some passion and excitement in my life. My best friend is moving on
and I want that someone special to share all that life has to offer. Let it be
known that I, Kinley Williams, want the right someone special. So why did he
have to crash into me? The one man who is so clearly wrong for me. Then again,
he doesn’t seem like anything the tabloids claim him to be. So is he really all
that wrong?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Indianapolis Eagles series.  There are some events in both books that overlap (occurred in both books, but told from different points of view) but it’s done in such a way that you would not be lost if you hadn’t read book 1.  That being said, I highly recommend reading the books in order, because events in book 2 contain spoilers for book 1, Just Say Yes.

Kinley is best friends with Becca, from book 1.  She, too, is a nurse, from Alaska.  She is a smart, independent woman, that has had no luck with relationships.  Brian is a teammate of Scott’s, and has always been a player.  He finds his outlook changing, but isn’t quite sure what to do with that.

This book, despite an instant connection between the main characters, is a slow-burn.  They take their time, and I find that very refreshing.  The relationship seems very real, because of that.  They get to know each other before jumping into bed, and the relationship seems stronger for it.  There are lots of issues for them to work through, and they might not have been able to get through them otherwise.

The connection between the characters was beautiful and pure.  I totally enjoyed this book, just as much as I did Just Say Yes.  There are some spots that brought out the tears, and were tough to get through because of that, but it just made the book that much better, in my opinion.  I’d definitely recommend this to anyone that is enjoys sports romances, and is maybe looking for something that is a little different paced than most of what is on the market today.  It was a great read, that I thoroughly enjoyed!
