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.
Just omg! Luca was definitely the sexy romantic of the group. I mean how suave, how swoon worthy is he. The man speaks romantic Italian phrases to Sabrina as he feathers her with kisses. Ok knock me over with a feather any time.
Now let’s talk about the intro. It’s completely hilarious. Gorgeous and sexy Luca is the victim of a run in with little Mikey. I laughed so hard.
Later, he finds himself a target of little Mikey’s sporting ability right smack in the middle of his forehead. However, locking in a meet and greet with Mikey’s mom Sabrina.
These three begin a relationship that pulls at your heartstrings, and exposes your emotions. You saw a part of Luca you never knew existed.
There were moments I laughed, and moments I teared up. Moments that had me so emotional. The relationship between Mikey and Luca was exceptional.
Luca was not only his sexy, hot and gorgeous self, he was tender, thoughtful, caring and gentle. I call sexy romantic as his new title. Luca was a special kind of perfection. He was witty, smart, and everything you’d want your wish to be. Don’t even get me started on him as a father figure or even as a father himself. Just ovary explosion alert.
This was the sweetest, most romantic and sexy read. I can’t tell you which one of these books I like best. They are best friends, and without each other it wouldn’t be the same. It’s like a family.
Sweet and utterly romantic!
A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm delivered one seriously romantic new book boyfriend with Luca in Scoring Mr. Romeo! From the moment I met him in Finding Mr. Wrong, I knew I would get swept away by Luca. Madden and Schwehm didn’t disappoint and, I quickly fell under this Italian’s spell. To be honest, this book caught me off guard, heading in a direction I definitely hadn’t predicted, but the authors kept me invested and quickly proved why Luca, Sabrina, and Mikey made the perfect family.
I adored Sabrina and her son, Mikey. There is no one more fierce or protective than a single mom and Sabrina was all that and so much more. I appreciated the raw emotion and genuine hesitancy that the heroine displayed, her dating decisions revolving around her son, first and foremost. Madden and Schwehm did a great job capturing the special bond between Sabrina and Mikey, and it was their incredible love for one another that struck me with this story. I also enjoyed Sabrina’s relationships with Cassie and Becky. These friendships allowed her to let loose and gave the reader a glimpse of Sabrina’s lighter, more carefree side.
Luca, on the other hand, was every bit the swoon-worthy hero I expected and then some. His patience with Sabrina and total understanding of always coming second in her life made my heart flutter, only for him to turn around and leave me hot and bothered a few pages later. He was very much an old-school romantic, and it was fun to see how he altered his plans to include Mikey. I definitely would have liked to explore this character more on a personal level. The authors didn’t unravel his past, motivations, etc. as thoroughly as they did with their previous heroes so, while Luca was undeniably sweet and delightfully sexy, I didn’t connect with him as I’d hoped.
Scoring Mr. Romeo had a very different vibe from the first two books from Madden and Schwehm. While Finding Mr. Wrong and Taming Mr. Flirt were very much romantic comedies, this book felt heavier. There was still a sprinkle of humor amidst all the romance and sizzle, but the single mom aspect raised the emotional stakes. Madden and Schwehm continue to demonstrate themselves to be a formidable writing team, their voices combining to create something memorable and overflowing with feels. Luca and Sabrina’s journey served up plenty of great banter, lots of melt-your-heart romance, a rollercoaster of emotions, and just the right amount of steam. Scoring Mr. Romeo is another memorable love story from A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm!
