THE FIRST SCORE BY AMIE KNIGHT-REVIEW
RATING: 4.5 STARS
There was something about that first score, and not just on the football field.
The First Score, an all-new, best friend’s brother romance from Amie Knight is available now!
She was tough and sarcastic with walls around her heart as tall as a football stadium, but I knew she was the one for me.
Desperate times called for desperate measures and I’d have done anything to make her mine.
Like create a fake online persona.
Lie about my age.
Pretend I wasn’t some naive virgin.
And catfish the hell out of the love of my life.
I received this ARC for an honest review. Thank you!
The First Score by Amie Knight was a friends to lovers romance and I loved this sweet romance. Olie and Hazel were friends from childhood and they knew each other very well. They were best friends their whole life and I loved that their relationship was so natural and easy.
I’d sit here and I’d wait for her. It was what you did for the people you loved and I loved the Hazel more than I’d ever loved anyone in my entire life.
Olie (aka Winnie) is a football player but isn’t a typical player because he is a virgin and he wants that his first time to be with the girl he loved his entire life. He always a Hazel and he always was there for her. He was his protector and he always saved her. He proved to her that he loved all her broken pieces and he is the perfect man for her. I loved Olie because he is really a sweet guy with a beautiful soul.
He’d always been understanding and wonderful. He’d always was been supportive and even when he hadn’t understood things. He’d always been there.
Hazel had a rough life until she went to live with her grandpa and he raised her. She meets an Olie and his sister Scarlett. They become her second family and she found a home with them. She always had feelings for Olie but she didn’t want to lose him and their friendship. She always felt that she didn’t deserve an Olie but he showed her that he loved all her broken pieces and they were perfect together.
You think I’ve been saving myself since our first kiss, Hazel. But all, I’ve been doing is saving your heart. Waiting and giving you time and respecting your wishes. You’re mine and fucking me won’t change that.
I loved their connection and I loved how Olie didn’t give up on Hazel. I loved how patient and loving was Olie with Hazel. Olie respected her wishes and he always was there for Hazel. The First Score was a sweet romance with a sweet guy and I recommend everyone to read this book.
Excerpt The First Score
“Thanks so much for taking her home, Hazel.” Ollie nudged me to get my attention and I turned to look at him, not having much choice in the matter now. I couldn’t be rude. It was a mistake. The green of his eyes was deeper today, less brown. I knew it was the jersey. It was always that way. A bead of sweat slid down the side of his face and he ran a hand through his hair like he always did. I knew it was a habit of his, just like I knew so many other things about him.
“You owe me.” I tried lightening the mood like I had with Scarlett. I nudged his shoulder but only came into contact with a pad.
Dragging his bottom lip into his mouth, he raked his teeth over the fullness and his eyes heated. He leaned his face close to mine. “You name it and it’s yours, brat.”
My face flamed and my mouth watered. Lord, he was a terrible flirt and by terrible I meant amazing. I swallowed the saliva pooling in my mouth and stepped back.
“Cut it out, Olls. Quit giving her a hard time. She came all this way so your ass would have a way home tonight.” Scarlett attempted to save me.
He eyed me. “Oh, I haven’t even started giving her a hard time yet,” he said before walking backward down the stadium steps, hot eyes still on me. I was thanking whatever gods were listening that he was walking backward. Please, God. Spare me that ass. I couldn’t handle it after his damn lip trick.
“You’re shameless, Oliver Knox,” Scarlett called down to him.
She wasn’t wrong. Oliver flirted with all the women. I never could tell if he had a preference for a certain kind of girl. If it walked and had tits and a vagina, he flirted.
“Bye, ladies,” Oliver said loudly and jangled Scarlett’s keys over his head before doing the most awful thing in the world to me—he spun around and gave me his ass. And God, was it a marvelous ass. Immediately my eyes ate it up. Was there anything better than a hot ass in some football pants? It was round and firm and high and I bet I could have bounced fifty quarters off of it. But I didn’t have any change. Damn. That was just my luck.
I was being mesmerized by the twin all white globes when they stopped just barely and my eyes diverted up to see Oliver looking over his shoulder and smiling. Damn him. He gave me a slow wink before continuing down the steps at a trot.
The tease. The bastard. He knew how good-looking he was. It didn’t matter a bit that he was my best friend’s brother or that he was a year and a half younger than me. Oliver Winston Knox was fine on a regular day, but in a football uniform he was the stuff dreams were made of. My dreams to be exact.
