Scoring Mr. Romeo
by A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm
Release Date: January 15th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Here’s a tip: never underestimate romance.
Falling in love was the furthest thing from my mind. I’m a single mother raising a strong little boy, and he is my one and only priority.
The universe felt otherwise, sending me―actually, my son’s soccer ball―hurdling toward a stunningly handsome, perfect man, who said all the right things. He made it hard to ignore how much I missed romance.
In the past, when I met a man, they ran as soon as they heard I was a widow with a child. Not this guy. No, he fell in love with my son, and in turn my son fell in love with him. But, it was hard to believe he felt the same about me. My job was to be the strong one―to protect our hearts from sweet dreams that never lasted.
Women told me I was a master of romance. They were right. I knew how to sweep a woman off her feet, to make her feel special, and good in all the right places. I wasn’t a saint. I’ve had my share of one-night stands. They served their purpose, giving me a steady diet of romance without the hassle of commitment.
Then one day at the park, a soccer ball came careening toward my head, and my life changed in an instant. I never imagined that true love would come in the form of a five-year-old little boy. And then I got to know his mother: She was strong, independent, drop-dead gorgeous, and someone I desired – I just needed to prove it to her.
She called me Mr. Romeo, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: Love always trumps everything.

Only an inch separated our mouths, but the cool air that replaced her warm lips had me going back for more. Wanting to feel them again, the second time I pressed harder. She parted just enough to convey she also wanted more.
My conscience nagged, forcing me to again break the connection and end the temptation. Her breath hitched when I added more distance, as if I removed her source of oxygen.
“I better go,” I whispered. The uncertainty in her eyes killed me. “Sabrina, I don’t want to… I need to.”

Scoring Mr. Romeo is a single mom story that was very enjoyable to read.
I will admit I am a complete sucker for single mom/dad stories so when I saw the blurb, I was super interested in it. I am glad that it did not disappoint.
Luca and Sabrina both have their own lives, and neither of them are looking for love. When Luca runs into Sabrina and her son on two separate occasions, it seems like it is just meant to be. Even though Luca wasn’t looking for love, he knows a good thing when he sees it, and goes after what he wants. But being a single mom, Sabrina isn’t necessarily ready to let her guard down and let a man into both of her lives. Can they find a way to make it work? Or will they both realize that they have separate lives, and the two of them shouldn’t be mingled together?
First off, any man that steps up and takes care of his own, or not his own children has major props in my eyes. I think there is nothing sexier than a man being a role model to a child. It gets me every time. So to read about how much Luca enjoyed being around Sabrina’s son was SO enjoyable to read. More men should be like Luca. Sabrina does go a little haywire in my opinion, but I have always been open to love- but I have also never had to deal with being a single parent, so i can’t really pass judgement on her decision.
I am giving this book 4 stars because it was a fast and enjoyable read. It wasn’t a book that was going to change my life, but it also had points that I could respect and see both sides of their stories. The story line was interesting and I read it in one day. Again, if you are looking for something fun and a single parent story- I would definitely recommend this! It was definitely heartwarming and kept me interested the whole time.
