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.

Christina’s 3 Star Review

Luca meets Sabrina after he has a couple of hilarious mishaps with her five-year-old son, Mikey. Cassie, one of Luca’s best friends happens to be Mikey’s teacher, and nudges Luca to pursue Sabrina. Sabrina, who lost her cheater of a husband in a car accident a year ago, isn’t ready to test the waters in the dating pool quite yet, but when Luca sweeps her off her feet, she has to decide if not only is she ready to move on, but her son as well. Mikey and Luca immediately bond over a shared love of soccer, but when Luca breaks a promise to Mikey, Sabrina needs to decide if she’s willing to put her and her son’s hearts on the line again

While the pace was a little slow, I enjoyed the book right up to the 75% point. That’s when the “drama” starts to happen and it made me not like Sabrina, at all. Up until then I liked the characters, especially Luca and his interaction with Mikey. Another big gripe is that the ending was a little anticlimactic. The epilogue didn’t really leave me with any type of closure or expectation of what happened next. I did like the single mom aspect of the book and how quickly Luca and Mikey bonded.

Scoring Mr. Romeo is a standalone, however it is the third book in the Mr. Wrong series. I haven’t read the first two and I think I probably would have gotten more enjoyment out of this book since the characters from the first two books play a large part in this book. I’ll definitely check out the rest of the series though!



Luca’s POV

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.”
