Series: Mr. Wrong #3
Genres: Contemporary Romance
I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.
Scoring Mr. Romeo is the third book in the Mr. Wrong Series. It combines two of my favorite things in Romance, a single mother and a charming playboy, in a story that will satisfy the true romance lovers in all of us. Luca appeared in the first two books in the series and I’m so happy he got his own story. And the fact that is story has dual POV is an added bonus! The secondary characters lend so much to the story and Mikey, Sabrina’s five year old son, is adorable. I loved this story. I read it nonstop, the story flowed effortlessly, and I found myself sighing deeply at the end.
Sabrina Callahan’s husband, Dillon, died a year ago, leaving her now five year old son, Mikey, still struggling over his death. Unfortunately Sabrina was confronted by Dillon’s betrayal shortly after his death and she stopped mourning him due to the hurt and anger. Apparently Dillon had left their marriage, in spirit without informing her, before his death. While Sabrina was ready to move on, and start dating, she was a little apprehensive of meeting a man and telling him she was a single parent. When Mickey has a few unfortunate and accidental run-ins with his teacher’s best friend, Luca, they hit it off. And so does Sabrina. She’s just not sure if she can ever trust another man, with her heart or her son’s. Especially Mikey’s still tender heart.
“Sweetheart, you need to live life. Not just for your son, but for you, too. Our hearts are meant to love, and you have so much love give. Don’t be afraid to open it again.”
Luca’s a charming playboy. He sees no reason to settle down and is even a little resentful that his friends have found the love of their lives. At least he and his best friend, Cassie, a kindergarten teacher, are happily single. Until all that seems to change when he meets Sabrina and Mikey. When he begins to wine and dine them, spending more and more time together, he begins to see the possibility of a future that includes the three of them. Until an unforeseen incident happens, that seems to destroy everything, and crushes his dreams.
“This is how I see it…you can spend the rest of your life waiting for that proverbial shoe to drop or you can go outside and be happy.”

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.”
