Synopsis (Goodreads):
He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.
Thoughts on The Score: Sexy playboy Dean Di-Laurentis is a hoot. A HOOT. The guy has no shame and I ADORE him for it. He's also pretty focused when he finds something he wants. Which, in this case, is Allie. Allie who says no to him. Allie who does her best to shut him down. Allie who he can't get out of his head.

I can appreciate Dean's non-creepy way to inserting himself into her life whenever the opportunity arose. Heck, I guess he made some of those opportunities happen, didn't he? LOVE THIS GUY.

(Also, his hard shut-down of Allie's guilt over feeling "slutty" for sleeping with him? GLORIOUS!)

Allie was very much Dean's opposite. She doesn't go for short hook-ups. He's all about the one nighters. The two of them together made me grin. BIG TIME.

(Also...BATHTUB SCENE. I laughed out loud. FOR REAL. Oh, Dean. You crack me up.)

Next up: John Tucker. *thumbs up*
