Two love-matches made.
One to go.
Even though two of his best friends have settled down, Wes Lancaster is determined not to get sucked into some siren’s web. As owner of the professional football team the New York Mavericks and wildly successful BAD restaurant, his lifestyle is full as it is.
Well, it was, until Winnie Winslow, the new, sexy, stiletto-wearing Team Physician trash-talks him in the locker room without batting an eye.
Now he can’t stop himself from wanting her.
The only girl in her parents’ brood of five, she’s as outspoken as she is beautiful and the kind of woman who holds her own—and then some.
Always competitive at heart, if he’s going all in for love...
Wes sure as hell wants a Win-Win.
Prepare to get a little dirty because this one might go into overtime.
Scoring the Billionaire was fantastic! It gave me all the feels, kept me giggling, and the conflict in Wes and Winnie’s story didn’t make my left eye twitch. 😉 So overall, I was correct in assuming that Wes and Winnie would end the series winningly! 😀
Despite know the least about these MCs going in (well, except for book 1 but cut me some slack here) I was truly excited for Scoring the Billionaire. I guess it’s because Wes has been such an enigma and after meeting Winnie in Banking the Billionaire, I just knew she’d tame Wes in the best of ways. I was not disappointed.
So Wes is the one billionaire bad boy that we’ve seen the least. Yes, he owns an NFL team and a few other businesses. And yes, he’s touted as being more of a player than Thatch. But who is Wes Lancaster? Well, I learned right alongside Winnie. Wes is a man with poor communication skills when it comes to women. If you keep things non-committal, who needs to be able to communicate? He thinks he’s content not being tethered down. And he likes to keep everyone guessing about what he’s thinking and feeling. You can probably guess that all this explains much about his lack of any deep personal connection with anyone. He’s smart, business savvy, and rich. But Winnie and her daughter, Lexi, are about to school Wes.
Winnie is tenacious and intelligent. She’s also tough. You know these things to be true because 1) she’s the little sister to FOUR older brothers and 2) she finished med school/residency being pregnant and a single mom. She’s awesome and I admired the heck out of her. Especially when she gave as good as she got with Wes. As the new team doctor for his football team, having grown up with four older brothers came in handy.
The romance between Wes and Winnie was combustible. But they were hesitant to put a label on what they had. I understood Winnie’s hesitancy. She has a 6 year old little girl and she’s been burned before. When Wes starts spending time with Lexi though, my heart melted just as quickly as Winnie’s did. SA-WOON! When things got scary (and by that, I mean they were both in deep), it felt genuine. I didn’t like how they handled it, but their actions made sense. And the way things were resolved was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better. As an aside, Lexi was ADORABLE! It was no wonder Wes fell for her and her mom.
I’m going to point out that the editing issues I had with the previous installments were markedly absent here. The book flowed well and felt just right in length. I also want to say that as a football fan, I appreciated the team element. It also felt realistic.
I DID NOT, in fact, finish this series in a month. But I gave it a valiant effort. Two out of three isn’t bad, right? Wes and Winnie scored big for me. Scoring the Billionaire was the best of the bunch and I’m happy that I finished up the trilogy even if it did take me into July to do it. 😉
