A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

Kara's Review

Most Likely to Score is Lauren Blakely’s new forbidden romance. It’s a standalone but we met these characters in Most Valuable Playboy. I love a great forbidden romance and add in some football and it’s a winning combo. Lauren knows how to write sexy, fun, sweet and alpha men. Every time I meet a new Blakely hero I can’t believe I love him as much, if not more than the one before him! I loved Cooper, I did. But Jones just does it for me. He’s perfection. He’s the perfect mix of sweet and sour, soft and hard, fast and slow, dirty and loving. I couldn’t get enough of his mouth or his hands. He’s has a thing for the team publicist, Jillian, for a while, but he can’t risk mixing business and pleasure when he’s trying to clean up his playa reputation. But, that doesn’t stop him from flirting with her. A lot. Jillian isn’t going to fall for Jones’s charms even though she’s been crushing on him for a long time. The flirty banter, sexy looks and funny one liners are all in fun. Right? Maybe not… Jillian needs one of her players to help with a charity calendar and Jones is just the mane for the job. He’s sexy, funny, an animal lover and the camera loves him. Jones isn’t losing out in this deal though. He’s getting Jillian and all her PR glory to help him mend his bad boy ways. He’s not really the player the world thinks he is. After spending time alone together, Jillian sees the real Jones. He’s sweet, caring, giving and turns out he does have a type and it’s not skinny blondes. Jones knows he should keep his hands off her, but he can’t help himself anymore. He’s been attracted to her for too long and it’s time to take action. When they find themselves alone on a business trip, they throw the playbook out the window and engage in a few nights of hot, sweaty sexiness. But it’s not enough for Jones. He wants more of this beauty with her Asian heritage, love of luck and gorgeous hair. They promise it’s over. It was just a few nights, but after they are home they can’t stop thinking about their nights together. It was more for both of them and it’s torture being apart. Can they take the chance and be together? Will they ruin the careers they’ve worked so hard for? I can’t even express how much I love these characters. Jones is everything. Seriously. He so sweet and I swooned every time he spoke to Jillian. He’s just the right amount of dirty to turn you on, then sweet to keep you there. He loves kids and animals and he’s not afraid to show his soft gooey center. Jillian is badass. She’s fantastic at her job, and loves her family. She knows how to do sexy business attire, lucky earrings and confidence. Together they are fun, sexy, silly and their banter is perfection. I laughed, cried, had to fan myself, swooned and laughed some more. I also need some damn cherry pie. Jones and Jillian are one of my favorite Blakely couples!


“You can look at me now. I’m fair game.”

“Take your clothes off, please. I’m begging you.”


I want her hands on me. I want her owning my body. I want her to know that she’s the only one I want touching me.


“Woman, if you didn’t tell your best friend about me, I’d have been devastated. The fact that you told her makes me weirdly, stupidly happy.”


“It’s tasty,” he says.

I bet he’s tasty.


Most Likely to Score is a standalone novel by one of my favorite all-time authors, Lauren Blakely. I have read every single word she has ever written and have loved them all. If you read Most Valuable Playboy then you should remember the flirty receiver of the Renegades, Jones Beckett and his favorite team publicist, Jillian Moore. Well, this is their forbidden romance…
Jones needs to clean up his reputation. Jillian needs a man to pose with puppies for a charity calendar. The camera happens to love Jones and he happens to love puppies and kittens. This is exactly what he needs to show the world who he really is. A man with not only big hands but a man with a even bigger heart. He also happens to have other parts to him but those are the parts that Jillian has been trying to avoid. Her motto isn’t “don’t look down” because she hates feet. She is all professional with the flirty, sexy as sin man but out of the office…that’s a different story. She has been crushing on him for years. And when that crush becomes a reality one night in Miami, she wants more. More of him. All of him. But, they can’t go there. Not only is his rep on the line but so is hers.
They have to keep this professional. He needs these deals to keep him on track and to help his family. She helped him land the deals and needs to stay on task. It’s her career and she damn good at it. They both know this but what if they took the risk? What if this is more than a fling? What if this is what love stories are about. Pushing boundaries. The out of control lust for the other. The deep connection that makes your heart flutter. Seeing the real person and not the image of the person everyone else sees. Is that love worth the risk of losing what you have worked hard for in the past? This is what Jillian and Jones have to ask themselves during the months of hiding their feelings. The feelings they have been hiding from even themselves. Will they take that risk? Is Jones the man Jillian wants to spend a lifetimes falling asleep on?
Wow! Lauren has done it again! She has given us another Blakely Man that made me swoon, cry, and tingle. Jones loves animals, cherries, and hot showers. I mean…hot showers. He has the perfect blend of cockiness, humor, sweetness, filthiness, and heart to make my heart feel full. Jillian is one lucky girl, but Jones is also one lucky man for having her. She is beautiful inside and out, passionate, and giving. Together, they are one amazing couple that I was happy to watch from the sidelines. The heat. The heart. The laughs. The forbidden. I loved it all.
Overall…if you love a forbidden romance with swoon, animals, and luck then you have to read this book! It’s a fast read that will make you want to go out an adopt a new pet. It will also make you want to make a cherry pie. And it will also make you want to take a cold shower if you don’t have the option of some playtime with your man, woman, or BOB.
P.S. I loved seeing Jess!
“You’d be donating your time freely.”
“Puppies, Jillian. Puppies.” I smile.
“There will be kittens, too.”
“Meow,” he says, brandishing his hands as claws.
“I want you tonight. I want all of you.”
Jones makes me feel like all my sexy songs. He makes me laugh. He makes me think. He challenges me. And he gives me so much of himself.




“Love it,” Christine says emphatically, her lips and that metal hoop in the bottom one the only parts of her face visible since the lens covers the rest. “How about a little tough-guy look now?”

Because tough guys hold footballs in front of their junk.

“This is my best badass pose,” I say, narrowing my eyes and staring at the camera like I’d stare at the secondary of the Miami Mavericks.

“Oh yes, more of that, right, Jillian?” Christine shouts to the other person here in the studio with us.

That person is Jillian, and she hasn’t looked my way since I strolled in here and dropped my drawers. Damn shame.

From her spot leaning against the far wall, the team publicist answers in a crisp, professional tone I know well. “Exactly. We love his tough-guy face.”

She doesn’t even look up from her phone.

I keep working it for Christine, doing my best to make sure my blue eyes will melt whoever is looking at the picture when the magazine hits newsstands and Internet browsers in another few weeks.

It’s an evergreen kind of issue, since the body edition is one of the most popular. Gee, I wonder why. I’ve no doubt this shot of me with a football for my skivvies will quickly surpass the previous most-searched-for image of yours truly—the game-winning catch I made in the end zone in the Super Bowl two years ago.

But, to be fair, there’s another shot of me that’s searched for maybe a tiny bit more. I like to pretend that shot doesn’t exist.

“The camera loves you,” Christine croons as the snap, snap, snap of the lens keeps the rhythm.

“The feeling is entirely mutual,” I say, pursing my lips in an over-the-top kiss.

Christine laughs. “You are my favorite ham in all of sports, Jones. That’ll be a perfect outtake for our website.”

“That’s a brilliant idea,” Jillian chimes in. “Make sure to send me a copy for social, please.”

“Absolutely,” Christine answers.

I sneak a peek at the dark-haired woman by the wall, that silky curtain of sleekness framing her face as she smiles a bright, buoyant, outgoing grin at the photographer then drops her head back down.


Jillian Moore is one tough nut to crack.

I’m nearly naked in front of her, and she hasn’t once looked my way.

As the woman behind the lens shoots another photo with my favorite ball covering my favorite balls, Jillian doesn’t even spare another glance.

I’m going to need a whole new playbook to get this woman’s attention.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?
