Review: The First Score by Amie Knight (Summerville Sports #2)

Ooh! I've been hoping for this book ever since I finished reading The Red Zone last year, and Amie Knight has made that wish come true with the release of The First Score. This is a companion novel but both books can be read independently of each other. However, I highly recommend you check out the first book because it really was quite a fantastic read and one of my notable sports romance novels from last year, so it's a win-win.

The First Score is a falling-for-your-sibling's-best-friend romance and features Hazel Jones, twenty-five-year-old video game store manager and best friend to Scarlett Knox, whose own story plays out in The Red Zone with Lukas Callihan, and Oliver Knox, twenty-three-year-old college football player and younger brother to Scarlett. Oliver has always had feelings for Hazel, but she only sees him as her friend--her Winnie. What's a guy in love to do? Why, create a fake gaming profile and catfish the girl of his dreams till she finally falls for him, of course!

I would like to nominate Oliver Knox as one of the top male main characters in a romance novel for 2020. I'm not saying that simply because he shares the same first name as my dearest baby boy. Oliver was such an awesome guy. Were his methods in trying to get Hazel to fall in love with him unorthodox? Yes, but desperate times call for desperate measures, especially when it's all done in the name of love. And Hazel was someone who was beautiful inside and out and her relationship with her Pops was one of the best things about this book. The First Score was the best kind of slow burn,e and endearing, friends-to-lovers love story. Five stars. 🖤
