  When Amber Velez moved back to town she had one thing on her mind, revenge. Thirteen years ago, when Amber was a senior in high school, she had given her heart and her virginity to Jake Storm. Jake was popular, cute, captain of the baseball team and every girls fantasy while Amber was just the opposite. Amber was overweight, shy and nerdy but she loved Jake with all her heart. The two had been friends for years and when that friendship went into deeper feeling Jake asked Amber to keep it a secret, which she did. Then one night things got carried away and Jake took Amber’s virginity only too walk out on her and move on to another girl the next day. Amber went off to college heartbroken, but now she is back and she’s the one breaking all the hearts now.

Jake Storm was known around town as quiet the player where women were concerned. The same one never lasted longer than a weekend and that is just the way Jake likes it. If he could just get his mother to understand that then he would be in great shape, instead he was about to go on another blind date that she had set him up on. When Jake walked into the restaurant to meet his date a pair of green eyes caught his attention and all he could do was stand there, dumbfounded. Jake knew what a jerk he had been to Amber and he had actually missed her over the years but he had also hoped to never see her again. Imagine his complete surprise when he finds out that Amber is the date his mother sent him on.

Jake could not believe the transformation Amber has made with herself, she was absolutely gorgeous now. As Amber and Jake spend more time together, Jake finds himself unable to get her out of his head, which is exactly what Amber had hoped would happen. It was time for Jake to learn what it felt like to care about someone and then have them walk away without a second thought, and Amber was just the woman to teach him. Amber’s plans for SETTLING THE SCORE may be a little more complicated than she thought when friends and family step in to help.

SETTLING THE SCORE is a fun, sexy read that had me hooked from the first page. I loved watching Amber’s plan for revenge unfold almost as much as I loved watching them rediscover each other. Even though Jake does have his faults he is a very likable hero and you can’t help but cheer for Amber. Elise Adams has written an enjoyable read that I think everyone will enjoy.
