Title: Score on Me (Renegades #1)by Melody Heck Gatto
SYNOPSIS:This is the first book in the hockey romance series, the Renegades.
Kat Torella didn't believe real love existed outside of her romance novels. She didn't believe in Prince Charming, or happily ever afters. Well, actually, she just didn't believe they would ever happen to her.
Kat was not built for love. She always felt like the fat girl that no one really saw. Being bullied as a child led to a lifetime of self-doubt. She feared that she would always see that little fat girl staring back at her in the mirror. Even as an adult, she's still dealing with it.
Hockey was her escape. She loved the game and she loved the players. One player in particular. He was dreamy. Even swoon-worthy. His dark eyes were mesmerizing. His smile devilishly sexy. His signature flowing locks always looked effortlessly perfect. He was flawless in every way...
Too bad she would never get a guy like him. Well, at least that's what she thought.
Kris Lafleur was the star defenseman for the Pittsburgh Renegades. Hockey was his life. Well, it was easy to be so dedicated to the game when he hadn't had much luck in the romance department. His hockey star status attracted puck bunnies and gold diggers. Neither was the kind of girl you wanted to bring home to mom; actually neither were the kind of girl that Kris even wanted to associate with. Deep down he was a hopeless romantic. He was looking for someone who was as devoted to him as he was to her, and not so interested in his bank account.
Then he saw her... Was it her smile? Was it her laugh? He didn't know what it was, but she already had his heart. She was beautiful.
Well, what more could a girl want other than sexy hockey players and a good storyline. The chance meeting of Kris and Kat lead to a love at first sight romance, I did think that this was a little bit too good to be true and that the author could've made this part of the story have a little bit more angst and turmoil. I really fell in love with Kris especially when he was being so supportive and reassuring to Kat when she was in her self doubt mode regarding her weight, he never let her think that she was anything less than perfect. Exactly how a man who loves you should make you feel!!! The introduction to other members of the team was good opening the door for further books in the series to follow. Overall a good beginning to a series. I award 4 stars ~ Rosie
