Review: Scored by Sloane Howell

He’s a player. But she’s about to score.

Opposites really do attract* as a sassy salesgirl turns a pro athlete’s life upside down in this supercharged standalone novel of seduction from the author of Bossed.

Kelsey: My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.

Matt: After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.

*And sexy times ensue—for mature audiences.

This standalone novel includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

'He's a player.' But you as the reader are about to score by reading this fun and oh so very, very sexy sports romance! Scored is nothing short of bookgasmic perfection! If this book had cheeks, I'd be squishing them so hard right now!! Eeek! It's just too sweet and too addictive for words, deliriously so! I'm a mushy, gushy pile of lustful swoon. Sloane Howell has once again rocked my socks off and hit another of his works out of the park with such a beautiful, well paced home run. This guy really knows how to write swoony AF romance that hits all the "O" notes that gets the butterflies swarming in my belly and my eyes rolling back in such book nerd bliss! Yeah, I guess you could say I kind of really loved this one a whole freaking lot! *le sigh* Everyone likes a dirty, filthy mouth on a hot alpha *wink*

Former player in the sheets and current all-star on the field, Matt Stallworth is a down to earth, dream boat with a heart of gold and a loaded wallet. Ok, he's loaded down *there* too. The one area he is not loaded in is the love-life department, but he has his eyes on one Kelsey Martin. Having been burnt by past love, she's definitely a challenge; but one he's certainly up for!

The thrill of the chase, their magnetic push and pull, the romantically charged swoon and chivalry, their undeniable chemistry combined with laugh out loud humour, wit and banter had me glued to this unputdownable story. Scored had my heart beating double time, soaring, and floating away in euphoric book lovers bliss. Sloane Howell did a fantastic job delivering this story and conveying the emotions involved.

"Oh, you wanna see some holy shit there, Miss Martin? I got some holy shit for you."


I just can't even when it comes to Sloane Howell, and that's a really, really, really good thing!!!
Scored for the win, a top read of 2017!

Review: Bossed by Sloane Howell

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.

As a first time reader of Sloane Howell's work I have to admit I'm impressed. Ok, I'm beyond impressed! Here's the deal, I'm super picky and have found my reading niche of choice... I'm tough and critical and sure, a few pet peeves were intertwined throughout the story line but as an overall experience, I'm SOLD on his brand and can't wait to dig into more sexxxy reads! #ThisBookThough!

To be honest, I haven't read many smutty romances penned by male authors... things like dumb clich├ęs and stereotypes come to play in my mind. I do try to have a very, very, VERY open mind when it comes to trying new things, products and... authors *insert awkward laugh here*. So, after reading and digesting Bossed, the author's gender doesn't matter one bit at all. I guess you could say that I just got schooled by Sloane Howell. A true artist immerses themselves in their work and characters and it really shows in this book!!!

There's so many things I loved about this book!! The vulnerability of Ethan, our sports agent Hero of the book made me downright giddy! So very giddy, I felt as if I was channeling my inner Kelsey(bff to our h) so, very SQUEE worthy! Trust me it'll all make sense after you read this panty incinerating read. Ethan is SQUEE worthy all on his own. His cocky, snide attitude, swagger, and witty dirty mouthed bad boy talk and vibe. Just, well... SQUEEeeeee! He's seriously book boyfriend material. Jenny wasn't the only one who got hot and bothered by him!

Every cocky rich boy needs a challenge, and Jenny Jackson unknowingly was under his skin. Making him itch for more. Insatiable, to the core. He had his eye on a sexy little prize and he'd go through hell to make her his. SQUEE!!! Oh yeah! This story line is all sorts of sizzling hot! Holy. Crap. I seriously can't even right now- you have NO idea! Perseverance was Jenny's game. She wasn't seeking a good time or love, she wanted a better income to provide for her loved ones. Sparks will fly, lust and love floating around their little euphoric cloud 9. Love isn't easy but the heart wants what the heart wants.

Bossed is a fun and sexy read that is laced with realistic challenges, outcomes and unexpected depth. So many emotions were felt throughout making me laugh and at times -almost- shed a tear or two. You certainly can't go wrong by reading this sexy little beast of a book!!
