Hard to Score by K. Bromberg is now live!
I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency–I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.
The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.
Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over.
I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible.
Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago.
I’m supposed to hate her.
I’ve been told so time and again for ten years – her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began.
But that’s not what I’m feeling now.
Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field.
Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague.
Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.

Hard to Score is a second-chance, of sorts, sports romance, two of my absolute favorite tropes, and with K. Bromberg’s writing and storytelling as well as how multifaceted Brexton Kincade and Drew Bowman’s characters are, I really enjoyed how everything unfolded, even if I was frustrated at times with some of their choices and how much the past seemed to dictate their present relationship.
Brexton is my favorite kind of heroine. She’s grown into an incredibly poised, intelligent, and strong-minded woman, no longer the shy and awkward girl who had a huge crush on Drew. And the fact that she’s kicking ass in a male-dominated profession illustrates just how unbelievably talented and girl-crush worthy she is.
Drew is a great hero, and Brexton’s perfect match, but the fact that he’s been taught to hate everyone with the last name Kincade, it’s a tenuous situation, which adds another layer to the wall that he’s continually trying to tear down, as a man, as a son, as a professional athlete. Drew has never been able to escape his past…to make his present what people think about more so than the scandals and the issues with his father. And this is the part that flabbergasts me because it’s clear who Drew really is and what he has to offer, but for some reason, he allows others to dictate both is personal and professional lives, but when Brexton steps into his life and fights for him, things look up for both of them, until the past rears its head again.
The main obstacle for Brexton and Drew is the feud between their families, and while I understand that a rivalry such as theirs would lead to bitter feelings, once the circumstances were explained, I felt like it was blown out of proportion, made to be a bigger deal that it should have been given the full scope of everything, but then grudges are held onto tightly for way longer than they ever should be.
I really enjoyed Brexton and Drew’s story. It’s clear, early on, just how compatible these two are and how good they are together. They’re drawn to one another, which makes the issues of the past a non-factor, at least in their minds, but that doesn’t mean everyone feels that way and that’s the mitigating circumstances that put strain on what they’re building. But as long as they get out of their own way and remember what matters most, hopefully they’ll get exactly what they want and need in all facets of their lives.
