Scoring the Keeper's Sister
Fernando Fuerte is a total player. In every sense of the word. He's star forward for the Sharks, the pro soccer team where I handle PR. And I don't care if Mr. Match says he's my soulmate. I don't date players.
But when my brother tells me there's no way Fuerte would ever go out with me anyway? All bets are off. I'll score him just to prove a point. Because if there's one thing I hate more than players? It's losing.
The problem is, the closer I get to Fuerte, the closer I get to losing my heart.
The Setup: When my boyfriend, Andrew-the-hand-model, dumped me, my twin brother suggested I try San Diego's hottest dating app, Mr. Match.
I figured I couldn't do worse than a guy who wore gloves all the time. (And I do mean ALL the time.)
But when the site matched me with my biggest PR nightmare and nemesis, Fernando "the Fire" Fuerte, a guy who has more dates than a calendar, I knew Mr. Match was probably high. Fuerte's tabloid shenanigans turned my stomach and regularly challenged my ability to keep the Sharks organization looking respectable.
My brother Trace--Fuerte's best friend and keeper for the Sharks--laughed at me when I told him who I'd been matched with. He laughed. I might take myself a little bit seriously, but I won't be laughed at.
Fernando Fuerte will go out with me if I decide that's what I want. And when Trace makes me a bet that I can't get him to ask me out? A bet that involves very fancy cheese?
The problem is that the closer I get to Fuerte, the more I start to see that he's actually a good guy. And the closer I get to becoming just another girl in his long line of dates.
If I fall for him, can I win more than just the ridiculous cheese bet I made with my brother? Can I actually win Fuerte's love?
Scoring with the Keeper's Sister is a hilariously fun romantic comedy featuring an annoyingly hot pro soccer player, a gloriously silly goalie as his best friend, a bet about Wensleydale cheese, and the matchmaking site everyone is talking about. It's part of a lighthearted and fun series, but it stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

Scoring the Keeper's Sister is the first book in the Mr. Match series by Delancey Stewart. Erica was not expecting it when she was dumped by Andrew, her boyfriend who just happened to be a hand model. Now looking for love, she was surprised when her brother suggested Mr. Match, a dating app. However, when she was matched with Fernando “the Fire” Fuerte, she knew her luck was out to get her into trouble. He was a PR nightmare that she often had to handle as the representative for the Sharks. He might be a great player on the field, but he was not a man she would want to get romantically entangled with. He was a man who loved the chase and she was looking for something serious. However, a silly bet with her brother made her take the risk to make Fernando fall in love with her. The more time he spent with her, the more she started liking him. If she was not careful, she might be another victim to the Fire. Could she keep her heart in check to win a bet?
Scoring the Keeper's Sister by Delancey Stewart was flirty, hilarious, and too entertaining to put down. I loved the clichés and the surprises in the story. Erica and Fernando complemented each other well. He was the not-so-player player and she was the misinformed lady who was used to handling messes he created. At a glance, they were different but when I looked at them closely, they were very similar. They both loved with a fierceness that was at once as relatable as it was believable. They both were compassionate and they both loved to take care of people they liked. The pace was fast, it kept the story going and the plot was well thought out. I enjoyed how Erica and Fernando learned more about each other and how their feelings developed. It was not instant; they took their time and I got to enjoy their not-so-friendly banter in the meantime. This is entertainment at its best!
