Samantha Lind wins with SCORING THE PLAYER, the second book in the Indianapolis Eagles series. Indianapolis Eagles Hockey defenseman, Brian Kelly, has a reputation as a lady’s man. That is until he meets, Kinley Williams. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences. Brian is a teammate of Scott Taylor form book one, JUST SAY YES. Kinley is the best friend of Becca Phillips, also from book one. This is the first book that I have read by Samantha Lind. I enjoyed her writing style. After reading about Scott and Becca in this story, I want to go back and read book one, JUST SAY YES. However, I had no problem following SCORING THE PLAYER as a standalone. Samantha Lind did a nice job with her character development. The characters are likeable and believable. Brian is a good guy. He has a hard time figuring out if people like him or are interested in him for his fame and money. He has a great relationship with his family. Kinley is a sweet heroine. She selfless and cares about others. The two face some interesting obstacles including a long-distance relationship. Kinley is in Alaska and Brian lives in Indianapolis. His family is in Minnesota. The story was skillfully written and flowed well. It held my interest throughout. I’m looking forward to book three, PLAYING FOR KEEPS, expecting to be released in 2018. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
