Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

My Thoughts

I’ve been looking for soccer themed romance books to read and a lot of romance readers recommended Scoring Wilder. This book was a fun and sexy sports romance read with a touch of the forbidden!

If you don’t know already, Pierre watches Premier League Mornings (this is a top-level English football league system), he’s also watching the Philippine Team Azkals compete in the Asian Cup (our first year to qualify), so this theme is so on point!

Anyway, what I do love about Scoring Wilder is Kinsley and Becca’s friendship! Man, these two were snarky and fun and basically, I want to be their BFF! Also, these girls are athletes as well! I’ve read a lot of sports romance books and from the books that I read, the heroines aren’t athletes. So, it was really refreshing to read about a female soccer player heroine.

Scoring Wilder has a forbidden love theme in that Liam Wilder is Kinsley’s coach! Well, temporary coach, anyway. For a few months, Liam Wilder has to coach the LA women’s soccer team due to his bad boy image and of course, sparks fly between him and Kinsley!

I’m a sucker for a good forbidden romance, so this was just right up my alley! I enjoyed the banter and the plot as a whole. I assumed that the plot would be sleazy and really scandalous, but I was wrong!

This book is written in first-person POV, but it only features Kinsley. Again, I do wish I got Liam’s POV because I wasn’t too sold on why he was attracted to Kinsley in the first place. It almost felt like he was attracted to her because she was the number 1 female soccer player. Liam was also viewed as the “bad boy of soccer” but I never saw anything that told me he was a legit “bad boy.” Arrogance doesn’t necessarily mean bad boy IMHO, so it really made me think that he wasn’t as bad as to be punished to coach a female soccer team. That, or I have been reading a lot of books featuring alphaholes lately. LOL

Scoring Wilder is read by Jessica Almasy and I both like and hate her voice. She uses a fast, high-pitched tone for Kinsley and Becca and the other girls which really annoys me. But for some reason, her tone and pitch actually work for the book and I did not have a problem with it at all. I also like the male voices that she uses. Her pacing is also perfect for the snark and girlish feel for when Kinsley and Becca and the other girls are talking.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Scoring Wilder and I will definitely be reading more R. S. Grey books!

  1. I’m so glad you’ve put R.S. Grey back on my radar! I have a friend who’s been twisting my arm for a couple years to read something by Grey and it just hasn’t happened yet. And I’d kind of forgot about her. I’m not sure I’d go the audio route with this one (based on your comments) but I definitely need to add it to my Kindle!

    • Yes, this was really enjoyable! And the audio was both annoying for me but I think it was appropriate for the book. And this is also on KU!

  2. I’m adding this to my TBR list after reading this review. It sounds like Kulti and I low key can go for something like that right now. Thanks for the review, Zee!
