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!

As a pro athlete, I’ve spent my life playing by rules, on and off the field. Especially this one - don’t date another baseball player. Following that ironclad rule has been as easy for me as hitting a lazy pop fly on a summer afternoon. Especially since I’ve got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present. Until the day a hotshot rookie walks into my locker room. 

Outgoing, affable, and sexy as sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles. Doesn’t help that he’s easy to talk to, that he seems to get me, and that we each have our fair share of secrets and scars - ones we’ll both fight to protect. All the more reason to resist the kind of trouble his lips and eyes promise. Even after I plant a scorching, hot kiss on the rising star one night after a game. Even after he sends me the world’s sexiest selfie. But when Grant reveals his biggest secret and asks for my help, I’m so damn ready to rip up the rulebook. Turns out he’s a virgin, and he wants me to help him get around all the bases. As long as I don’t fall in love with him as we go.

Scoring with Him is book one in the Men of Summer Series. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years and continues in Winning with Him, also performed by Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan.

** Hot & Heavy **

Holy habañero!
THIS. WAS. HAWWT! 🔥🔥🔥

A scorchingly hot sports M/M forbidden romance, marvellously performed to absolute perfection by Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan.

Grant and Declan’s irresistible attraction, undeniable desire, and intense passion will have you swooning and yearning for more with each chapter.

“Scoring With Him” ends on a ‘WTF! This can’t be the end!’ cliffhanger, but don’t fret, the sequel “Winning With Him” is set to be released in August.

Lauren’s writing is visceral and emotional and stirring, creating a world of equality and tolerance that should be applauded, admired and emulated in every day life.

All the stars (and then some!) from me.

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!

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.

Yes, read it😍

I love the world Lauren creates where love is love and that's it😍🌈. Grant and Declan are adorable and I love the banter between them. And the sexy times are 🔥🔥. Teddy and Jacob are back together where they belong forever. Their voices compliment each other so well. Other than the cliffhanger (thanks for that LB), this story is awesome and I'm counting down to see how it ends (happily).

Another beautiful hot love story

It’s killlinggg me to wait for the next book! So much hotness in one book. Beautiful balance between sex scenes and the rest of the story line. Two of the best male narrators in my opinion.

One Track Steele

How can you not fall in love with Grant Blackwood and Declan Steele? To me it’s like breathing, it just comes naturally for me to fall in love with Lauren Blakely’s characters (all of them). Scoring With Him has all my favourite genres wrapped up in one, no sorry make that two, books. Sports romance (baseball no less). Forbidden romance, and of course m/m romance. Yes, it’s just perfect. Grant is the rookie on the San Francisco Cougars, that means he actually gets to play with his longtime crush, Declan Steele, one of the best ball players in the major league. That’s as long as neither of them mess up their game, and there’s one sure fire way to do that. By lusting after each other. They both need to keep their eye on the ball and avoid distractions during the season. So, no matter how attracted they are to each other, they’re not going to go there. Or are they? I loved it. Perfect writing, perfect characters, and perfect narration. Because, duh, Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan. They nailed it. Be warned though, this is a duet, so if you’re anything like me you’ll be left reeling. I need book two, like now, because I need their happy ever after.

Gripped

Oh this is one hell of a story, I am a sucker for a bit of angst in a character and they certainly both have backstory. Just when you think you know what is going to happen Lauren hits you with a twist and a beauty of a cliffy. My favourite thing in a book, luckily not long to wait for book two!
