Then she glances around the living room. You have to keep me company, Dean. Sounds about right. Especially when they belong to cute blondes with great racks. Fucking wonderful. Big fucking trouble.
It had been a really good trip… I push the memory aside and grab the remote control off the coffee table. My gaze travels over his bare chest. I cannot tell a lie—his chest is absolutely spectacular.
Tall and lean, with perfectly sculpted muscles. It really is a shame. He was joking, right? Despite my better judgment, I picture it. Dean up in his room. One hand wrapped around his dick, the other hand…cupping his balls? Clutching the sheets? Shaking myself out of it, I click the remote until I find Netflix, then start browsing the latest movie titles. Less than five minutes later, Dean saunters back into the room. Thankfully he put on some pants. Except he ditched his boxers in the process, which I know because his sweatpants are riding so low on his hips I can almost see…places I have no interest in seeing.
I was trying to be nice. No way. I can show you a picture. Then he stops and grabs the waistband of his sweatpants instead. In the slightest. Have you seen it? Silence of the Lambs. The Exorcist. Deal with it. Then his jaw relaxes and he releases a heavy breath. I quickly fish my phone out of my jacket pocket.
When my feet connect with the hardwood floor, I lose my balance and stumble right into his massive chest, my nose bumping one defined pec. I quickly steady myself, armed with a glare. His lips twitch. Like, totally proportioned to your chest. I am perfect. I need to remind myself of that more often. Trust me, you need this. All the cool kids are doing it. Give it to me. Dean is beaming as he passes it over. We spend the next couple minutes passing the joint back and forth in silence like a couple of hooligans loitering behind a gas station.
Not in the pompous, watch-me-roll-around-in-my-money-vault sense, but in the way he struts around like the world is his oyster. Looking at him, you just know this guy gets whatever he wants, whenever he wants it. And apparently marijuana makes me both philosophical and judgmental. I blow smoke right in his face. The frat guy? Was the sex really boring? I thought we were getting too serious, too fast. It was freshman year, and it seemed like we should be sowing our wild oats and all that crap.
I went out with a few guys and they were all total sleazebags. It made me realize how good I had it with Sean. But then you guys broke up again. One of his frat brothers hit on me at a party, and Sean decided that nobody was ever allowed to look at me again. He started telling me how to dress, texting all the time asking where I was and who I was with. It was suffocating.
And it was. He stopped being clingy, and he was so good to me after that. After two and a half years with the guy, I knew we had something worth fighting for. We were fighting a lot. Damn it. Did he lace this weed with truth serum or something? My plan was always to move to LA and focus on my acting career.
I want to use it. Forget it. My eyes water for a moment, and when my vision clears, I find serious green eyes watching me carefully.
Me and Garrett can handle our own in a fight, but if you want some bonecrushing, we can unleash Logan on him. The only thing I want you to do is take this stupid phone. Only give it back if my dad calls.
Or Hannah and Stella. And Meg and—you know what? That way you can slap me if I try to text Sean. He tips his head. How about a BJ? I have no willpower when it comes to Sean. He swiftly takes a step back, then glances at the screen. I have faith in you. God, even the way he walks is arrogant. And he looks good doing it. My gaze unwittingly rests on his taut ass and the way his sweatpants cling to it. The best way to get over someone is to hook up with someone else. Seriously, just find yourself a rebound.
Then he beckons me. My humor fades when we settle on the couch, because Dean flops down directly beside me, slings one muscular arm around my shoulders, and tugs me close.
I frown at him. So you put your arm around Garrett when you watch movies with him? Not happening. And he smells really good. Like the ocean. No, like coconut. Oh, for crying out loud. I point to the TV. Just a lot of laughter that pours out of my mouth in uncontrollable waves. I suck in a gulp of air between giggles. Tapping his long fingers on his thighs. Raking a hand through his hair.
Heaving a sigh as we watch the main character prepare an omelet in real time. When she sits at the counter and starts eating the omelet—in real time—Dean erupts like a dormant volcano.
I said it. This goddamn movie goddamn blows. Enduring this film is the equivalent of watching paint dry. He stares me down for several seconds, but my acting skills come in handy, allowing me to convey pure innocence.
This is a whole new level of brutal. Wrong thing to say. His green eyes instantly take on a seductive glint. Do you ever take no for an answer? Sex is always fun. How about just oral? And then giving. You got any empirical evidence to back that up?
And Dean knows the word empirical? Wow, maybe there is more than air inside that pretty head of his. I scowl when I recognize the tune. He answers without delay. He pauses again. I mean, all my sympathies for people who have it, but this movie is god-awful. Later, bro. But is there any gratitude on your part? I, on the other hand, have standards. Yeah, I know all about it, sweetie. That was a desperation kiss. Dean is so not her type.
Then again, I never thought hockey superstar Garrett Graham was her type either, and look at them now. Keep telling yourself that. The main character is preparing food again. She eats a lot in this movie. Only one thing is gonna make this piece-of-shit movie tolerable. Like one of those comically huge mallets you see cartoon characters whacking each other with.
Oh God. Even the barely audible groan that escapes my lips is enough to bring a shock of agony to my temples. And the act of shifting in bed evokes a wave of nausea that tightens my throat and makes my eyes water. I breathe through it. The realization hits me at the same time I register the sound of breathing. Not the shallow, I-drank-too-much-tequila breaths that are leaving my throat, but the soft, even breathing of the guy beside me. This time when I groan, it comes from deep in my soul.
The memories come crashing back in vivid Technicolor. The terrible movie. The tequila shots. I slept with Dean last night. My heart beats faster as I stare up at the ceiling. Maybe it was a bad dream, a voice in my head tries to assure me.
I draw another deep breath and find the courage to turn my head. What I encounter seizes my lungs again. His bare ass taunts me, not just with its sheer perfection, but because of the red scratches on his tight butt cheeks.
My nails had left those scratches. I lift a weak hand and notice the fingernail on my index finger is broken. That must have happened downstairs—I remember him being on top the first time on the couch. The purplish hickey on his left shoulder had happened up here, during our second round when I was on top. I want to be the first one to christen it.
I know what Dean looks like naked. I know how it feels to have him thrusting inside me. I know too much. My head pounds harder. Fuckity fuck fuck fuck. What the hell have I done?
My sex roster features a total of three guys—two in high school, one in college, and all of them were my serious boyfriends. Why did I let this happen? I can handle my liquor just fine. I made the first move. What is the matter with me? Not the end of the world. I massage my screaming temples with the pads of my fingers and force myself to ignore the sleeping man beside me.
It was just a one-night stand. Nobody died. I might regret it—desperately—but regrets are for sissies, as my dad likes to say. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Move on. No, just move. As in, sneak out of this bed, take a long shower, and pretend that last night never happened. The mattress squeaks and I freeze, my panicky gaze darting toward Dean. I take another breath and ease my legs over the side of the bed.
When my feet hit the floor, Dean stirs. He releases a halfmoan, half-breath. Then he rolls over and oh my God, I can see his dick. Heat floods my cheeks as I stare at his package. He was right—he does have a great cock. And unless my memory is failing me, I believe I vocally praised the glory of that cock many, many times last night. A silent groan rises in my throat. All right, enough reminiscing. I need to get the hell out of this bedroom.
No, first I need to find my phone. Which only brings more panic, because that means Tucker must have seen them when he got home last night. I fish around in his pockets for my phone. Thank God. I type in my passcode. Guilt slams into me from all directions when I see the unread messages from Sean. Details if other: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page.

Real Life Fun Fact Alert: I call my husband "Rabbit" and "Bub," rarely by his actual first name. So that above gif just became homie's favorite. But I digress. The book. Elle Kennedy. I bow down to you. Wait, what formula, you ask? Whelp, this one: Hot hunk of hockey player who can and usually has fucked everything that moves because, you know, all the vaginas be like "please fuck me and my friend too. Because true hotties always rise above. Now, all joking about the above formula aside.
The characters in this series deal with some major issues along the way. REAL life problems and obstacles that cause legit grief and heartache. So there's that. Also, another awesome round of applause to Ms. Kennedy for the anti-slut shaming agenda that arose pun absolutely erected in this story. All us sluts heartily thank you.
And that ending? Holy hot hockey-ness, people. I'm sooooo fucking excited for Tuck's book that I can't even stand it.

Nov 11, Christy rated it it was amazing.
When starting The Score I was a little nervous it wouldn't live up to all the hype. I loved the first two books in this series so hard, I could only hope this was as good. I think The Mistake is still my favorite because, well… Logan. But honestly, this was just as good as The Deal for me and solid 5 star read! I was so anxious to see how Dean would be in this book… how does the ultimate college man-whore settle down? Is it even possible one woman could make him fall?
And they have the right chemistry. And she can keep him on his toes. I just adore him. And Allie was pretty fantastic as well. I love me a feisty heroine! Dean met his match when he found himself wanting her. There is so much I love about these stories, but really I think my absolute favorite thing is the bromance between these guys.
When it comes to college romances, this one takes the cake. Elle Kennedy will give you love, laugh out loud humor and amazing off the charts chemistry. Her characters are lovable and these books are just fun to read with the perfect amount of feels and emotions. The Score goes on my must read list! This is one I highly recommend!

The best part in the series! Nothing about the plot from me because I encourage you to read it yourself, but I promise, you will laugh and get teary-eyed and get all mushy inside. Holy shit, this guy is swoonworthy. Let me count the reasons: Is dirty in bed, with a power to seduce with just words that spill out of his mouth. Reformed manwhore. Yeah yeah, you know the type, we all love them.
But once he gets Allie, he is loyal, so no worries about hanky panky on the side ladies. Boy is smart, like really smart with good grades and all. Who would have thought, huh? Is also super funny and cheery most of the time.
The banter and sweet talk between him and Allie is awesome. And finally, he will squeeze out of you all those warm feelings. Love with HIM. Truly, it was fantastic, mark your calendars for January 11th Now, only Tucker left, and judging from that last sentence…. So yeah, keep that shit up Elle Kennedy because you are doing a fine job.

View all 92 comments. Apr 29, Geri Reads rated it it was amazing. The funniest, most irreverent and emotional book in the series by far. My friends know how much I loved The Deal, and I love it still. I really do but this book This book made me laugh and it also made me cry. Yes, cried because apparently, Elle Kennedy had a few surprises up her sleeves which totally broke my heart. This time, the story centers on Dean, the unapologetic and self-proclaimed manw The funniest, most irreverent and emotional book in the series by far.
This time, the story centers on Dean, the unapologetic and self-proclaimed manwhore of the team. Dean has had it easy. He's good-looking, rich and doesn't lack for any female or male adulation. But Dean's life became a lot more interesting when Allie Hayes, Hannah's best friend, came to stay over at their house one night to avoid her ex-boyfriend who want to get back with her.
Dean being Dean, he put on the moves on Allie despite warnings from Hannah and Garrett. Unfortunately, Allie was unimpressed. She knows Dean's reputation and she doesn't want to be just another notch on her bedpost.
She knows who she is: And Dean is the epitome of casual. Besides, Allie just broke up with her on-and-off boyfriend of three years. But Dean was persistent and he managed to convince Allie to ditch her no casual sex rule in favor of some hot rebound sexy times. I personally cannot blame Allie for capitulating because when Dean wants something, he is tenacious and he can turn on that Di-Laurentis charm like nobody's business.
Allie didn't stand a chance. Heck, I didn't stand a chance. I was swept right along with Allie.
I love reading this aspect of the book. We all know by now that Elle Kennedy is a master at banter, and that's never been more apparent than in this book. I could not contain my chuckles and my grins while reading. My husband had to shush me because I could not hold my laughter in. It's simply impossible not to laugh at some of the things that happened or at some of the dialogue in this book.
I thought The Deal and the Mistake were funny, but the Score took it to the next level because Dean was a natural comedian. Same with Allie, too. She can go toe to toe with Dean with no problem at all. I know there were a few readers who were disappointed that Sabrina wasn't the heroine for Dean but let me tell right now, I'm not sorry it wasn't Sabrina because Allie totally owned my heart from the get go.
She's feisty, funny and like I said, she's unimpressed with Dean and she made him work for it. Dean and Allie simply worked together. Sure, Allie had her moments of guilt and indecision but the author explained those very well I sympathized with her. I knew where she was coming from and I could understand why she would feel that way. But the best thing about this book is how you get to see Dean and Allie fall for each other.
It's so rare to read a book that actually shows the hero and heroine fall for one another in a series of moments instead of just being told that they are in love.
There's no insta-love here. And I LOVED that because even though Dean and Allie were physically intimate with each other and are crazy attracted to each other, they didn't fall in love immediately.
It took time for them to fully trust one another. But the moment they did, oh man, it was well worth the wait. Seriously, Elle Kennedy should conduct a workshop on this non-insta love thing because I much prefer my romance like that.
Apart from the romance, there were other layers to this story. We see Dean change and grow as a character. We read about Allie deal with her limited career choices.
We see the gang worry about life beyond college, about whether or not they're going to still be friends with each other or lose touch. Dean and Allie also had to deal with disappointments and tragedy.
There were so many things in this book that rang true for me based on my own experiences in college. I also loved that there were no slut-shaming in the book.
My usual complain about NA and sometimes with contemporary romance is that when you have a manwhore hero, we usually get the whole "all the other girls are sluts except the heroine and her friends" shtick.
The characters had to own up or gets called out on heir prejudice about sex and hook ups, and it's perfect. I could not hate Dean or feel bad for the girls who chose to have sex with him simply because they were written as characters with agency. And there were some things from Dean's past that should've raised my hackles, usually, but it didn't because again, Elle Kennedy treated it with sensitivity and it worked perfectly with Dean's character arc.
I really can't find anything to complain about this book. I finished it with a huge smile on face because it met all my expectations, and I hope it will meet yours, too!
I refrained from posting some quotes because you guys should experience all the funnies yourself. And trust me, if you loved the previous books in the series, you will undoubtedly love this one as well.
View all comments. Dean Di Laurentis is in my blood now. I didn't expect this intense sexual chemistry between us, but it's here, and it's addictive, and I don't know how I can ever give it up.
You know when you read the first book in a series and you love it so much that you don't think anything can top it, but then you read the second and you love it just as much? So then you know that the chances of that continue to hold for the 3rd book are slim, righ 5 Stars I kiss him back hungrily, helpless to resist him. So then you know that the chances of that continue to hold for the 3rd book are slim, right? In my experience, it's tough to keep that sort of momentum going Because not only was The Score absolutely fantastic, but it turned out to be my favorite in the series.
And considering how much I loved the previous two books, that's saying something. Now let's be real here; considering how much I love me my manwhores, it was already a good chance I'd love Dean Di Laurentis. Even the man's name is hot, for goodness sake. Between his self assured ways, cocky attitude, humor, and manwhoring tendencies, I couldn't get enough of him. The guy has the attention span of a fruit fly, and the affection-giving habits of a puppy, offering his sexual devotion to whoever happens to be holding the treat.
By which I mean the vagina. What I love about Elle's writing, is the depth that she gives her characters. And Dean certainly was no exception. He may be the hard partying manwhore with a crass sense of humor, but beneath that perfect exterior there's so much more to him and you really get to see it blossom here.
Allie Hayes is Hanna's best friend that just recently broke up with her long term boyfriend of 3 years. In fear of giving in when he comes calling again, Allie seeks an escape at Garrett's place. She knows all about Dean and his one and done ways and he may be hot but he's not for her. She's a nester. She has relationships not one night stands. But then a broken heart and some tequila lead to one of the hottest hookups of her life with none other than the sexy manwhore. She's determined to keep it in just friends zone after but Dean is determined to change her mind.
Have you considered seeing a psychiatrist about your delusions? How about we go down on each other instead? While I loved the slow building romance between Dean and Allie, what kept me turning the pages was the banter between them and the rest of the guys. The Twilight references alone had me laughing like a loon. It was witty and crass, and wildly entertaining. Dean and Allie together was the perfect examples of opposites attracting and I absolutely loved them together.
Their banter and chemistry was utterly delicious. See, if you take away my dick privileges, I'll be fine for moths. Years, even. But if I take away your pussy privileges? You'll be utterly lost. Like a drowning man at sea, desperately grabbing for the vagina preserver. Therefore, vagina trumps penis. These two may burn up the sheets together, but the feelings came with time and I for one loved watching those develop for both of them.
This isn't just a story of the manwhore meeting his match and inevitably succumbing to his feelings for her; it's so much more. The story had wit and humor and so much depth to it, too.
There's something that happens towards the end that caught me completely off guard. I never in a million years expected something like that to happen and yet as much as it broke my heart, I can't help but to admit it did the job of driving the plot where it needed to go.
Without a doubt, Elle Kennedy is a force to be reckoned with. The woman can write the hell out of a book. Dean and Allie's story was funny, sexy, swoony, emotional and wildly entertaining. It was everything I love about romance and exactly why I read New Adult. THIS is how it needs to be done. I can't wait to see what the next book brings, because after that little peak we got?
Oh yeah! It's about to get real. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on: View all 69 comments. Each guy is pretty cocky and gorgeous, but never do they come off as narcissistic pricks. He enjoys sex and is a serious exhibitionist as well. The one time he attempted to be in a relationship ended disastrously and several years later he is still haunted by the past. That book was on my top ten of list. Allie has just broken up with her boyfriend of the past three years and is feeling vulnerable.
Allie knows Dean and is fully aware of his reputation, which makes her immune to his charms. The sex turned out to be mind-blowing for the both of them and after a ton of resistance from Allie, the two enter into an arrangement.
They agree to have sex on a regular basis and to not see other people while doing so. But as they start to spend more time together, feelings begin to develop and pretty soon they question whether there might be something more than just sex between them.
I found myself comparing Dean to Grayson from The Friend Zone , which only made him that much more lovable to me. There were some angst filled moments, but they were quickly resolved and I wished that they had been drawn out just a bit longer. Expect to laugh your ass off at least a few times, especially during the bath tub scene with Winston.
The steamy scenes were seriously freaking HAWT!! Dean is pretty insatiable and I guarantee that you will either be taking a few cold showers, attacking your man, or spending some quality time with your Winstons.
Apr 30, Brandi rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Fans of The Deal. Once again, Elle has taken a common new adult formula and made it fresh, fun and highly entertaining. A no-excuses manwhore and Ms. Relationship come together, resulting in sizzling chemistry and hilarious verbal sparring. The Score was a wonderful story, one that had me smiling and a bit misty eyed, a perfect combination of heart-warming romance and light-heart humor, all surrounding realistic college life.

Talk about sweeping me off my feet, this hero has gone and made himself my favourite out of all Elle Kennedy's boys; no small feat let me tell you, this author has a particularly wonderful talent of making her men irresistible.
In fact all romance readers who haven't yet had the fortune to 'meet' these characters should make it their quest to read them immediately. Trust me you won't look back. What's it all about? After her latest heartbreak, Allie Hayes decides to make a personal pledge to avoid making the same mistakes again. Allie will do anything and everything to avoid getting her heart involved.
Setting out to concentrate on making her dreams a reality she has no interest when the possibility of a one night stand with the notorious man whore, Dean Di - Laurentis becomes a possibility.
But after one drink too many and with an itch to scratch, Allie lets her hair down for just one night. But after getting just a little taste of the sassy blonde Dean finds himself wanting more. And so begins the cat and mouse chase of a lifetime This hero wants Allie all for himself. What did I love? There was not a word, sentence or chapter that didn't have me glued to the action. The romance was on point, the characters were adorably addictive and the story line had me hooked.
But over everything else this book made me laugh like no other in the series, the banter was on point and the connection and friendship between the characters was one that I don't think I'll ever forget about.
Elle Kennedy really does have an incredibly special talent at making me fall in love with her words and you would have be insane if you didn't find something to love about this reformed man whore and his sassy counterpart.
Plenty of emotion, scorching hot chemistry and a romance story that had me feeling all the feels. I really can't find fault with this diamond of a book and it's official the off campus series is crowned as one of my all time favourites. Final thoughts There should not be a single romance reading addict left on the planet who hasn't started this series. I'm being deadly serious, it's a crime against the romance reading world to have not experienced this authors insane ability to create a new adult romance of epic proportions.
If you are one of those readers yes, I'm looking at you who has not yet got themselves wrapped up in this gorgeous series then I whole heartedly recommend that you stop right where you are and Start. And as for me well I can sit back with the biggest smile on my face after meeting a hero that quite frankly will be taking up residence in my book heart for a long time to come. However, i'm more than happy to make room for more from Elle Kennedy if she's going to keep up this standard of hero worship.
Readers, I adored Dean and Allie their story is adorable, soul searching and one to not miss out on. I can't wait for my fellow romance addicts to fall in love like I have.

My face? Turn the fuck on. And then we get to the non-physical awesomeness that is Dean. You make life work for you, babe.
I do what I want, when I want it. Dean Di Laurentis fucks because he loves to fuck, and he smiles because he goddamn loves to smile. Dean fell apart, yes. I adore this series and I loved this book, I really did. Dean is my favorite in this series. The book contains all the elements I love in the college romance genre: So why not 5 stars? Their relationship is based on sex and watching soap operas.
And although the author is trying to portray their relationship as a slow-building one, it still seems rushed to me. I had a problem with the flow of the story too. The beginning and the end of the book are flawless but I got bored around the middle of the book.
I also caught myself rolling my eyes a few times, for instance during the tomato scene which seemed immature and unrealistic. But those are only minor flaws. Overall rating: Dec 17, Stacey is Sassy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Can a manwhore recover from manwhoritis?
I started The Score on my birthday. Happy Birthday to me!!!! Now I did say I was celebrating, which did involve wine.
I think I got two pages read. The Score was being neglected, but it was definitely not forgotten. All of these things slowed down my progress. That last part packed a punch and I needed to be whole and hearty to Deal with it and all The Mistakes that could have cost Dean The Score.
She loved him…or so she thought, but would someone who loves you want to change you? Pffft…tell him his dreaming. Luckily she woke up to herself and realised their dreams were different. Her best way to avoid an attack, is to avoid him. Easier said than done and she must bring in Hannah, her best friend, to help guard and reinforce her barriers. All those ice hockey heroes can protect her.
Dean Di Laurentis, Manwhore Extraordinaire is having a "sandwich". Things are heating up when the doorbell rings. His plans get shot to smithereens when babysitting duties are forced upon him. We know him as the manwhore who gets off getting off with numerous women on the couch in the lounge room. But the guy had absolutely no hesitation on chucking out the "sandwich" and going hungry. She wants to concentrate on her career in acting, and look after her father who has an incurable disease.
The journey for Allie and Dean is far from smooth. Besides their relationship, there are things with their career paths, families, friends and lifestyles that need to be dealt with. What seemed like an easy life for Dean, soon becomes hard.
At first he struggles, but when push comes to shove, his intelligence, upbringing and education help him to work through the difficulties.
I really enjoyed this story and loved seeing the maturity blossom in both Allie and Dean. I do think that he had an opportunity to enjoy his good looks and privileged life to the absolute full and took it. Elle Kennedy, The Score was another win for me. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy….

I enjoyed reading about people in college who had dreams and goals; who experienced things in their lives which shaped who they were and when confronted with real challenges, pulled from within These books had humor, drama, amazing sexy times and most of all, none of the over the top angst so many other stories can have.
