The MCs were hot together, and the kids, who were VERY present, didn't overwhelm the romance. The epilogue was cheesy as hell but cute. However, the story felt LONG. I mean, it is sort of long, but I've read much longer books where I blinked and it was over. Score wasn't like that. At one point, I felt like I'd been reading forever, but I was only at 25%. It was a bit of a struggle to finish, truth be told. Between that and the editing issues, my rating of 3 stars feels fairs.

So this hit on every damn button I have. I laughed, cried, and fell in love with this family and the men taking care of them. A.E.W. writing was brought to my attention last year and ever since I have one clicked her books or I've had the pleasure of receiving ARC's from her. I fully enjoy her writing and her stories. Beau Hopper never stays in one place very long and has become accustomed to saying goodbye with no problem. He's use to moving around to wherever his hockey career takes him. He's gotten good at being alone. But when he meets Conner and his still mourning siblings he doesn't think saying goodbye and going back to being alone will be so easy. In fact it's not. Conner Casey hasn't been a constant in his siblings life since he has been stationed all over the world as a Marine. But when his mother and step-father, his siblings father, is killed in a car accident he has no choice but to leave his career behind to take guardianship of his two younger brothers and two younger sisters. To say he's a bit lost with the world on his shoulders is an understatement. Then there's the Walrus nipping at his feet as well. He is doing his best at trying to raise four kids he doesn't know very well but loves fiercely. Conner has social services (the Walrus) on his back to make his parents home livable again for the kids after Harvey destroyed a lot of it. He's made some improvements but not enough. He has a lot on his plate with the kids and his work at the car garage. But he only has a month to get it all done or the kids will be put in a home. Who knew the blue haired hockey player, Beau would be the answer to all his prayers. Beau is pretty well off and doesn't need to work per-say. His family owns a huge ranching business in Oklahoma and it has left his family very well off. Beau is also pretty good with tools and construction. He proves this when he shows up and Conner's job needing his brakes fixed and shows off all the work he has done on the inside of his van. When Beau lets slip that he's needing a new place to crash Conner's boss jumps on it trying to convince Conner to let Beau stay with him in exchange with helping him fix the house up. Conner isn't sure he wants a stranger staying at his home no matter how attracted he is to the blue haired Beau. But with more pressure coming from the Walrus he gives in. From there a beautiful relationship builds between Conner and Beau, Conner and his siblings, and between Beau and the kids. The way Beau meets Conner's family was pretty adorable. I loved the pets names too. But the kids really stole the show. They didn't take away from the romance nor did they take away from the relationship between Beau and Conner. What I mean by stealing the show was that they will completely make you fall in love with them. I would love a Sean story. Pick this one up! Happy reading dolls! xx

    I’ve been an AE Wasp fan for a while – I love the Veterans Affairs series and the current Hot Off the Ice series. She continues her hockey theme but brings it to the ECHL in Texas. I really enjoyed Connor and Beau’s story and am intrigued by the Hidden Creek concept, to see how this story intersects the others. Connor and Beau hit my catnips – they are stronger together but each needs to learn to ask for what they need and recognize that they are building a family with Connor’s half-siblings.

I didn’t realize that I had a thing for couples building families at the same time as they built their relationship (see my reviews of Poke Check, Skater Boy, and Squared Away). I'll probably bump this to 5 stars once I find myself rereading it.

    I received this ARC from the author in return for a fair and honest review! This book hits all the right spots and does it with humor, love, four incredible kids, two (apparently) gay guinea pigs, one former marine and one ice hocky player. Seriously... who could ask for anything more. I laughed, I cried and laughed some more! Beau and Connor are just fantastic as individuals and are magic together.

    Absolutely adorable. I would never have listened to this one except I needed it for a challenge... well I'm urging you all: do not hesitate to read or listen to it whenever you need a really sweet/sexy/interesting/just plain old excellent story. There's angst, but it's not really between the couple so much as it's in the characters. Wasp does an amazing job building this extensive cast, and the story flows from beginning to end seamlessly. Really, really well done. Absolutely adorable.

It's not my fault that reviews disappear on a hair's breadth of a brush on the screen. I listened and read this. While the grammatical errors could be glossed over in the audio book, the narrator didn't blow me away. He did have a sexy Texan accent, though! I wanted more consistency in the UST flounced in my face. The tension was all over the place and didn’t make me ache for the first kiss like it should have. I also wanted more hockey. We only had one scene, and that scene felt very out of place—why include it at all? That being said, I enjoyed this book more than this review displays. Wear with caution.

I love watching Connor rebuild his relationship with his siblings and how everyone accepts Beau into the family right away. Connor and Beau’s relationship grows out of spending a lot of time in close proximity. Along the way, they also gain some new female friends in Connors boss and her partner, and some hockey fans that he and the kids befriend while watching one of Beau’s games. I love also how the kids are present and act their ages (5-16).

I was so glad to get back what I love about Wasp's stories with this one when the last book I read didn't feel quite as good as usual with Wasp's stories. But this was on par. There were still typos here and there, which are starting to feel like a staple of Wasp's stories as well as the fun and great stories, but oh well. I've learned to deal with them by this point. Beau is 29, in the ECHL, which is a step below the AHL, so it's the lowest professional rung of of Hockey, and he could have probably gone on to the AHL an then NHL, but he's never cared enough, never put in the effort. And he's always been comfortable leaving, going from place to place, never staying long. And when he meets Connor, 28, where he works at a mechanics in a small town in Texas when his car needs tuning up, there's an instant connection for both of them. But Conner, just 4 months ago, got custody of his 4 younger siblings, all below 18, when his mother and step father (and father to the rest of the 4) died in a car accident, leaving him with the responsibility of raising them. But social services is breathing down his neck, and his house still needs repairs done - Hurricane Harvey did a number on it and it still isn't finished. And the social worker threatens to take away the kids if the house isn't completed with repairs in a month. So Conner turns to Beau, who's looking for a place anyway, to help with the repairs. He doesn't plan for Beau to help out with the kids, and he sure as hell doesn't expect to fall for Beau. And Beau wasn't looking to come to love the kids either, and definitely not fall for Connor and finally not want to leave, to want to stay forever. But Connor and Beau are both scared, and take them a bit to get with the program and fight for what they want. I loved this story - all the 4 kids were great, to adorable little 6-year-old Benji to 16-year-old Sean. Micah and Fiona are the other two kids, and they were great as well. There are a few angsty moments, like it diving a little deeper into Connor's slight PTSD after leaving the Marines, which he'd been in for 9 years. But having Beau there helps them all, and helps Beau too. He brings light and laughter to the family but also gains a family as well. And Beau and Conner were awesome together, I loved them - their chemistry was off the charts, and the sex was hot ;) (well, what little we got of it. Having 4 kids around did not make it easy for these two to get busy). The ending was great too, it was adorable and sweet and made me laugh and smile like a loon. Loved it! Definitely recommend this, it was awesome :D

    Damn it, A.E. Wasp! You made me cry! Connor was in the Marines, but had to return home after his mother and step-father were killed in a car accident. He became the guardian for his 4 siblings, and was struggling with how to manage his emotions, their emotions, keep food on the table, and get them to all the places they needed to be.

The whole family was going through a tremendous adjustment, and they had social services breathing down their neck the whole time. Beau was an ECHL hockey player who tended to move around a lot, and was recently playing for a team near Hidden Creek. He was living in the team house, but hated it mainly because of one homophobic teammate. Connor met Beau at the garage Connor worked at, and found out that Beau was looking for a place to stay and was handy at fixing things. He gave Beau a trailer on the property to live is he would help fix up the house to get it ready for inspection (it was damaged after Harvey). Beau brought so much light into the lives of the kids and Connor. He helped them come closer together, and helped keep Connor's sanity. There were some times where things fell apart and feelings had to be dealt with, but it was beautifully written. My heart really broke for the family. Thankfully, once Beau came on board and Connor realized that asking for help was not a bad thing, he was able to build his circle of support, and they all became much healthier. I would love to read more about Beau and Connor, and I would LOVE to read more about some of Beau's hockey teammates. This was yet another fabulous Hidden Creek book. I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC of this book I received from the author

Connor is now the guardian of his four siblings since their parents passed away two months ago. He is having some problems with the social worker because the house needs some fix to be done so he end up making this arrangement with Beau; Beau could use Connor house's trailer to live and Beau will help him with the house repairs. Then the two men starts this fling but knowing that Beau's time there is limited. So the two of them would need to decide if they really want to be together in a serious way.

    “Do you think we can do it?” he asked. “Live happily ever after?” Beau pushed himself up on his elbow to look Connor right in the eye. “Baby, we already are.” I enjoyed this one for the most part.

Actually, there were parts that really surprised me with how they got to me on an emotional level. Wasn't expecting it. Beau and Conner are sizzling together for sure, it's palpable. But then we've got the editing which needed another look over because I'm not big on critically looking at editing but it bothered me enough to take me out of the story a time or two. The plot is scattered in places. Things not always followed through. There's questionable things said that made me stop a couple of times. There's Beau who is the oldest and yet read younger than the kids sometimes, especially in the first half. The way he'd act more like one of Sean's buddies. Then constantly saying things that you wouldn't say to kids who recently lost their parents. For the most part they're not, but the kids were used as a plot device just because the MC's couldn't communicate. But all in all it's a good read. There's a happy ending, a family who got through the hard things together and there are characters I'd definitely like to read their stories.

    This book! Just wow! I don’t even know how to describe this book. It’s just so damn beautiful. The author does a fantastic job giving you all the feelings. It’s the perfect blend between being serious and hilarious. I laughed out loud at times and was near tears at times. I mean the guinea pig wedding. It was hilarious. The epilogue goes to history of one of my favorite epilogues ever. And Benji. A special shout out to that precious kid!

I am a big fan of AE Wasp, but Score immediately became my favorite book she has written. Connor and Beau are just.. ahh <3 <3 <3 Connor is struggling under the weight of everything he is suddenly responsible for. He had to leave the Marines and return home to Hidden Creek, TX four months before the start of the book due to tragic circumstances. He finds himself at once the guardian of his four younger siblings and needing to finish repairing the damage Hurricane Harvey caused to their family home. Between fighting off a bigoted jerk from social services, working full-time, working on the repairs to their home, and his siblings, Connor has no time or energy for anything or anyone else... until Beau. Beau is a professional hockey player in the ECHL who has spent years traveling the country playing for team after team. Now in Hidden Creek, he meets Connor thanks to a car issue and instantly falls in lust with the gorgeous mechanic. When he finds himself offering to help with Connor's home repairs in order for him to finish on time, Beau hopes to have a little fun with Connor while he is in town. He is a drifter, after all, never putting down roots anywhere and not going home to his family much.. and he likes it that way. Or does he? Gah, this book! Connor and Beau are simply magic together. The banter, the almost instantaneous connection, and the sexually-charged energy between them drew me in completely. Their chemistry is undeniable and so damn hot! But more than that, the way they treat each other and the tenderness that develops between them... *insert swoony sigh here*. These men truly bring out the best in each other and I adored every sentence on the way to their HEA. I was like a moth to their flame reading this story. Seriously. Aside from the romance I clearly fell in love with, I adored the kids! Sean, Fiona, Micah, and especially Benji just stole my heart completely. And it all started with a rather unexpected and hilarious wedding... for guinea pigs. Seriously, guys, you have to read this book. It cracked me up so many times. There is a lot of humor and love within these pages, but there is also pain and sorrow. I lost my stepfather (who raised me as his own my entire life) less than five years ago and have three younger sisters who were young when it happened, so the pain these children and Connor are feeling over the loss of their parents resonated with me in a powerful way. While reading, I spent half the time laughing while spending a good amount crying because AE Wasp captured those feelings of loss so brilliantly. But don't worry, it isn't overwhelming - the story is balanced so well. Truly her best work to date. I really enjoyed the entire Men of Hidden Creek series and the books the other authors wrote for it, but this story stole my heart and won't give it back. If you haven't read it, or the rest of the series yet, what are you waiting for??
