Publisher's Summary

An emotional, sexy, forbidden romance performed by Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton! Scoring with Him is the first novel in the utterly addictive Men of Summer series!

I’m a rookie, in every sense of the word. But even though I have a wicked crush on the sexy shortstop on my baseball team, I won’t give in to my fantasies about him. I’m here in the majors for the first time to play ball. Not to experience my first time with a man.

Trouble is, Declan Steele is sexy, flirty, and now, he’s my new workout partner. We’re spending mornings together in the gym, getting to know each other. Our connection is powerful—maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars. Ones we'll both fight to protect. I've got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present, no matter how much I long to sneak into his room at night and ask him a question.

But soon, I can’t keep all this desire under wraps. I take chances for a living, so I take the biggest chance one night at spring training when I send him the world’s sexiest selfie. Right along with a question: "Would you be my first?" But falling for my teammate wasn't part of the plan.

Scoring with Him is book one in the Men of Summer series.

A passionate forbidden romance

First of all a stellar narration by both Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan.

An emotional listen about two baseball players that are attracted to each other. The problem is, they are both on the same team and that is a no-no. They are challenged with making hard decisions about their relationship. Will it survive the pressures and unsurmountable roadblocks ahead of them. Is it worth it? I found myself rooting for this couple throughout the whole story.

My heart stopped

And started and stopped.

Grant and Declan will fuel you in ways you could NEVER imagine.

And that cliffhanger? UGH! I’m DYING! (I have faith completely in Declan. I don’t believe it!)

Lauren out does herself with every book. And I’m here for it all.

Ends on a cliffhanger, does not end 😬

if you want to hear (what I believe? might be) the whole story, you gotta get the next one too. this one basically ends in the middle of a plotpoint/sentence. that's pretty frustrating. Otherwise it's a good story. I'm pretty cheesed though not gonna lie hahaha

Epic romance

To say I have been dying to get my hands on this book would be the understatement of the year. This book is perfection!! From the moment I started reading I simply could not stop. Scoring With Him had me grinning, sighing, swooning and gave me a twist I did NOT see coming. Hands down, this is Lauren Blakely at her best!!

Scoring With Him is the first book in the Men of Summer duet. Yes, you read that right, duet!! This begins the epic story of Grant and Declan. I am absolutely in love with this world!! If you haven't read a MM romance before I urge you to start with one of Lauren's-where love is love and it's simply accepted as just that.

Grant and Declan stole my heart in this book and I'm 100% ok with not getting it back. I expected to love Grant just a smidgen more than Declan but I was wrong-I love them both equally. I have claimed them and I'm prepared to fight anyone who tries to take them away from me :) Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton give one of their finest performances in this book. I absolutely love them but there is just something special about the way they bring Grant and Declan to life here. You can feel the excitement, the tease, the longing and the romance between them in every word.

Grant is such a sweetheart. He's smart, sexy and confident-until he has to talk around Declan. I loved watching him unintentionally flirt with his crush, then try and correct it. I loved his friendship with Reese and his support system was outstanding. He's quite the catch-no pun intended-and I couldn't help but fall for him...hard.

Declan. Oh, Declan. This guarded man just made me want to hug him. He's got an innate confidence that is just so sexy. I love his determination, his rules. And I absolutely LOVED seeing him want to break his rules for Grant. He has a vulnerable spot and I did want to hug him every single time that surfaced.

These two have a connection that is just undeniable. From the very moment they meet you can feel that spark, that WANT-even though they both try and ignore it. The flirting and banter these two was just perfection. Seeing them finally give in was SOOOO incredible. This book has one of the best first kiss scenes I've ever read-I was definitely fanning myself just from that!! Their connection is not just in the bedroom (but seriously, have a fan and batteries at the ready) and I loved seeing them balance their friendship and respect for one another with their growing feelings. I was invested in them 100%. Their love was so believable to me and I was cheering them on from the start.

The writing here is top notch. I literally could not stop reading once I started. To me, this book is a whole other level for Lauren Blakely-and that's saying something for me! I adored the supporting cast of characters here and hope to see more of them soon. There is one character though that I actually disliked-and I can say I've never disliked a character from this Author before. There are reasons for my dislike, and I won't spoil them by listing them, but I will say the behaviors of this person are 100% accurate. I'm also a sucker for all the little easter eggs Lauren gives her readers; they always make me smile.

As mentioned before, this book is the first in the Men of Summer DUET. I will tell you I gasped out loud at the conclusion of this book and frantically tried to turn the page to see what happened next. That's how engrossed I was in this book! I don't normally do cliffhangers and I'm so glad we won't have long to wait for the conclusion of this duet.

Scoring With Him is a ten star read. It has the heart, heat and humor I've come to expect from a Lauren Blakely book with something extra. This is a book I've already read again and I know I will revisit it time and again. I cannot wait to get my hands on Winning With Him to see the conclusion of this epic love story!!! Don't miss out on this book! I absolutely LOVED it and HIGHLY recommend it!!

⭐️⭐️ 5 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️

I have been waiting for this book because I just knew I would adore it! This MM Romance was so sweet & sexy but It was also so much more. I love that Lauren gives us a world where love is love and we can just enjoy the love without all the other nastiness.

Declan & Grant were HOT from day one! They have mad chemistry but they also have a true love connection which I felt all the way through this book. Even though they planned it to be a fling, there was no way it ever could have been from that FIRST KISS and OH MY that kiss scene was PERFECTION!! I swooned, my heart melted and I fell in love too! This book was super hot and every one of the sex scenes were awesome and really made this story and the characters feel so realistic to me. Declan has a dominant vibe about him which I love but I love even more that he isn't really bossy, he just knows what he wants and isn't afraid to say it. Grant is more the fun loving innocent type but with a very old soul serious feel about him and being with Declan brings out his bolder side.

Now let's talk about the cliffhanger.... just a little. While the ending left me DYING for more, I will happily wait for the next book because we get another book with this same couple which isn't normally the author's style and let me just say I am SOOOOO happy she chose Declan & Grant for a series because I know I will fall in love with their story all over again with the next book.

As always I adore Lauren choice for the narrator of these characters. Teddy & Jacob are a serious dream team of narration and they were so good I forgot it was them and not Declan and Grant telling me the story!

Narration is the only redeeming quality…

The story is slow, repetitive and much of the dialogue is unnecessary. Sex scenes are way too long and the story just stagnates. Very disappointing…

Hot!

This is the first book in the Men of Summer Series, an M/M Sports Romance. Declan and Grant's story is sweet, steamy, and beautifully written. They share a sizzling hot chemistry! The characters are well developed, and the heartfelt storyline is interesting. The steamy scenes are well written, and really hot! The story ends with a cliffhanger, and I can't wait to listen to Winning with Him, the next book in the Series. Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton did a wonderful job with the narration.

No!

This is headed to the DNF shelf. It reads like boring porn. Bad. The narrator for Declan sounds as if he's reading the history of red paint. *smdh*

Holy Smokes!

OMG this was so good! Lauren writes such wonderful characters. Declan and Grant stole my heart. I loved the build up of them being together, the UST was off the charts! I loved the way they talked to each other, it made my heart melt over and over again. And can we just talk about this dream narration team? Jacob and Teddy are amazing. They bring all the emotion, all the passion, all the love. This was a spectacular audio of a fantastic book. The cliffhanger was intense and book 2 cannot come soon enough!
