Trying to Score Kendall Ryan Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive ... Double check.
Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.
But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn't have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.
Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?
Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He's a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She's a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!
Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all-new standalone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is for you!
(Books can be enjoyed in any order.)

Super Sexy and Lots of Fun
The Hot Jocks series by author Kendall Ryan just keeps getting better, book by book. And, while I thoroughly enjoyed the first two stories, I think that TRYING TO SCORE might just be my favorite installment yet.
Second-chance romances sometimes start out sticky or angsty, but, apart from the 'oh, heck' situation that truly brings Teddy and Sara back together, these two really just segué back into more than friends so very easily. I really appreciate that Teddy sees what a strongly self-sufficient and independent woman Sara is, and that he admires her all the more. And that Sara enjoys Teddy for who he is, whether it's hockey star, goofball, or the sexy friend with benefits that she knew way back when. Kendall has done a nice job of bringing their relationship full circle, writing a story that is both sexy and feel-good.
Although this is the third book in a series, it is a total standalone, and can be read as such. But I think that you'll love Sara and Teddy so much, that you'll want to read about their friends, too. Go forth and click! ❤️
Trying To Score
A magnificent story line and romance. A great read so download it now and enjoy! Christine
Teddy is a star player on the hockey team. Sara is an up and coming lawyer. When Teddy has a video that is threatened to be released he counts on Sara’s help to stop the blackmailer.
Super steamy second chance romance. Third book in the series, while technically a stand alone it is best read in order. The series is wonderful. Teddy is sweet and alpha at the same time. Sara is driven yet vulnerable. A great romance and a great series!!
So flipping good!
I’m obsessed with this entire series. Each book truly stands alone but they are all soo good!!
This book scored with me!
I enjoyed this second chance, fake relationship, friends to lovers romance from the first chapter through the end! I love books that have a great mix of humor, heart and heat, and this book definitely did! There wasn’t much drama which was refreshing! I loved that Sara was smart, fierce and confident. Teddy was much more than just a dumb jock; he was also smart, fierce, confident and went after what he wanted. Sara and Teddy had chemistry from the beginning, and I loved reading snippets of their time together in college. They never told each other how they felt in college, and this finally felt like their time. A thoroughly enjoyable read that scored with me!
I received a copy of this ebook from the author for my honest review.
Another fantastic book in the Hot Jocks series! I keep falling in love with all these great hockey players! This time we get Teddy and Sara’s story. These two have a past relationship that none of their friends know about, they only know that they were friends in college. The past comes back to threaten Teddy and Sara’s careers. To try to take some of the sting away that this video scandal could cause, Teddy and Sara agree to be in a fake relationship. But of course they both realize that they don’t want this relationship to be fake. I love that the attraction between these two was always simmering below the surface until they had to put on a “show” in their fake relationship. Then they let the attraction out and dang was it hot! These two were a great couple and really balanced each other out. I love that they had their second chance now and could appreciate what they have now more than they might have in college.
I loved both Teddy and Sara and loved the scenes with Owen, Becca, Justin and Elise. And the little hint of something between Bailey and Asher. Another great book in this series that you definitely want to read!
Love this series!

I am so loving this melty, hot series by Kendall Ryan!
This is Teddy & Sara's story. Now you can read each book as a total stand-alone, but if like me, you have read them all and I loved the frenemies vibe I got in the previous books between Teddy & Sara. You could read there was something going on...something in the past and this story brings it all to the forefront.
Sara is a take no prisoners attorney, she works hard and dedicates her time and energy into her career.
Teddy is a star hockey forward on the ice. He too is dedicated to his career and to his grandpa.
Teddy & Sara's past rears up and has the potential to ruin their careers and future.
I loved the flow of this story. I liked how all the feelings were touched upon in the telling of Teddy & Sara's story. The bit of hurt, the bit of angst and then a whole lotta swoons and love! Their chemistry could melt the Ice Hawks rink in no time flat!
I loved seeing past characters making an appearance, it's fun to keep up with all of the characters in this series!!
Get your hands on this story, heck the whole series!!
Charming & Romantic!
Just my type, seriously sexy, highly entertaining and perfectly romantic. This was a fantastic friends to lovers as well as a second chance romance story and an excellent addition to the “Hot Jock” series. It was adorable, the banter between these characters is life! Full of heat, heart, humor, emotion and swoon.
Teddy King and Sara Dawson have been fighting their attraction and hiding a past that none of their close friends know anything about. But when Teddy is blackmailed over a sex tape that they made seven years ago in college, both of their careers and futures could be jeopardy. So at the urging of his teams’ public relations representative, these two start a fake relationship, making it look like they are in a committed relationship for the sake of the media.
But what Sara doesn’t know is that Teddy still has feelings for her, but with their careers and crazy schedule he just thought it wasn’t meant to be. But as these two really start connecting once again and enjoying their time together they start to lose track of what is real and what is not. Their combustible chemistry, and their time together, soon has these two realizing that they haven’t been doing much pretending lately at all.
Don’t miss this one! So romantic and charming! I couldn’t put it down.
