BXTCHES Gotta Warn: I feel like a broken record with no end in site each time I review a book in this series (any series really) because I keep saying the same thing over and over again. . .Yes, you will certainly need to read the books in the order in which they were written. I realize that a lot of times when it comes to a series, the author will add the standard “Can be read as a stand alone”, and I’m sure some of them can be (though I don’t know if I really agree), but when it comes to this particular series, it is so NECESSARY to follow the order. And look, I get it. . .I mean, check out that fuck HOT cover, I would want to start with this book, too. But, you BXTCHES are going to have to wait and start from the beginning. This series is broken up into 3 novels and 3 novellas (all have already been released). Each novel will give you a full blown story, focusing on one couple, while each novella gives us a shorter story, wrapping up the previous couple and at the same time, introducing us to the next-Tapping the Billionaire (book #1) gives us Kline and Georgia, while Tapping Her (book #1.5) finishes them up and introduces Thatch and Cassie. Banking the Billionaire (book #2) gives us the entirety of Thatch and Cassie, concluding their story in Banking Her (book #2.5) and that is the book where we really meet Wes and Winnie, getting their full blown glory in Scoring the Billionaire. I know that may be a lot to digest, but trust a BXTCH when she tells you to just start with Kline and Georgia, enjoy Thatch and Cassie, and wrap it up with Wes and Winnie. . .you’ll thank me later. And hey girls, don’t fret about missing out on any of these characters when you dive into a new couple, they are all pretty present in each book.
Scoring the Billionaire will be told through the POV’s of both Wes and Winnie.
We’ve already met both Wes and Winnie, so there isn’t a lot of groundwork to lay down for these two, but for fun, let’s review a bit. Wes is already a member of the Billionaire Bad Boys Club, being the owner of a NFL team and a pretty successful restaurant. We got a little more than a glimpse of him all the way back in the first book, when Georgia went to work for him and really got to experience his sense of humor when he and Thatch would banter back and forth in book #2. Winnie got folded into the group via Will (Georgia’s brother) and it was through Georgia that she was able to get the job for the Mavericks as their team doctor.
Winnie is a single mom to 6 year old Lexie, who could put college students to shame with her knowledge of anything mathematical. . .Lexie has been diagnosed as high-functioning on the autistic spectrum, so Winnie being able to take a job that gives her more hours at home, is a sigh of relief. Since taking the job with the Mavericks, Lexie has become an expert on all things football, which kinda becomes an icebreaker between her and Wes (not that one was really needed).
Wes is living the life. He’s the owner of a NFL football team, a successful restaurant, doesn’t really have the need for the same woman to warm his bed night after night. And even when Winnie comes barreling into his life, forcing him to make the appropriate adjustments between his legs, he knows that he sure would like to have her under him, he’s just not sure that he’s the type to travel down the road that has already claimed Kline and Thatch, especially when there is a kiddo involved.
Hopefully you BXTCHES did as instructed and have already started falling in love with Wes and Winnie in Banking Her, and if you did indulge in that gem, then you remember how the sexual tension was about to blow. . .well, blow it does. You know you’re jonesing for some cock or thirsty for some puss, I should say the right cock and right puss, when an accidental meeting at a vending machine is all that’s needed to push you over the edge.
The relationship that begins to blossom between Wes and Winnie may be somewhat based on the fantastic fucking that’s happening wherever she can get bent over or he can be ridden, but it doesn’t take too long for either of them to realize that maybe just maybe they are the perfect match.
The ensemble here is sitcom worthy. The last we left this group, Cassie and Thatch were tying the knot, Georgia was almost as protective over Cassie’s ever growing baby bump as Thatch is, Kline is just as laid back as ever enjoying the wedded life and passionately in love with his wife and Wes and Winnie are trying to fight through the need to rip each others clothes off. Well, in Scoring, Wes and Winnie satisfy those needs, Kline is still in madly in love with his wife and the suburban life, Georgia is border lining on crazy where Thatch and Cassie’s offspring is concerned and we do get to witness Cassie joyously (insert sarcasm right here) giving birth. We do get some great introductions to others for this story. There’s Lexie (Winnie’s daughter), who not only holds her own superbly well, but the interactions between her and Wes may have you in a puddle by the last page. Winnie is the only girl among five siblings and while we got to meet them briefly in Banking Her, we get more of them in Scoring and it’s everything you’d expect it to be between a girl and her four overprotective brothers. This series continues to introduce us to wonderfully written characters that individually bring so much depth and personality, but together gives us sitcom worthy dialogue and storylines that’s gonna force some mourning when it all comes to an end.
You’ll never have to worry about leaving any of these books feeling incomplete. Just like the previous couples, Wes and Winnie certainly know how to bring it when the clothes come off. What may have started as some hate fucking, quickly emerges into some pretty fantastic “meeting of the minds”. I mean, these motherfuckers are taking advantage of being alone to a whole new level and we are the recipients of all of that selfishness. And it shouldn’t take much to start up the imagination, holy hell, look at the cover, that should be all the incentive you need.
I have made it known in previous reviews that I’m somebody who enjoys drama in her books, even those that are mainly focused on comedy. Well, we get it here. I won’t give anything away, but the drama was definitely more heightened in Scoring than it was in any of the previous books. I also didn’t think that this book brought as much comedy as the previous ones did. I don’t think the cutback on the comedy made the book better or worse, it just wasn’t as prevalent as it was with Kline or Thatch, this one took more of a serious tone. But no worries, BXTCHES. . .you’ll find yourself falling just as hard for Wes.
