Score On Me by Melody Heck Gatto Blog Tour!

Score On Me

#1 book in the Renegades Series (hockey romance)
by Melody Heck Gatto
Genre: Sports Romance

Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

Kat Torella didn't believe real love existed outside of her romance novels. She didn't believe in Prince Charming, or happily ever afters. Well, actually, she just didn't believe they would ever happen to her.

Kat was not built for love. She always felt like the fat girl that no one really saw. Being bullied as a child led to a lifetime of self-doubt. She feared that she would always see that little fat girl staring back at her in the mirror. Even as an adult, she's still dealing with it.

Hockey was her escape. She loved the game and she loved the players. One player in particular. He was dreamy. Even swoon-worthy. His dark eyes were mesmerizing. His smile devilishly sexy. His signature flowing locks always looked effortlessly perfect. He was flawless in every way...
Too bad she would never get a guy like him. Well, at least that's what she thought.

Kris Lafleur was the star defenseman for the Pittsburgh Renegades. Hockey was his life. Well, it was easy to be so dedicated to the game when he hadn't had much luck in the romance department. His hockey star status attracted puck bunnies and gold diggers. Neither was the kind of girl you wanted to bring home to mom; actually neither were the kind of girl that Kris even wanted to associate with. Deep down he was a hopeless romantic. He was looking for someone who was as devoted to him as he was to her, and not so interested in his bank account.

Then he saw her... Was it her smile? Was it her laugh? He didn't know what it was, but she already had his heart. She was beautiful.

Melody was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband, son and two dogs. The whole family are avid Pittsburgh Penguins fans and like going to hockey games when they get the chance. Melody enjoys taking her son to meet the players on game days. It's no secret that meeting the players is just as exciting for her as it is for her son; especially when it comes to her favorite player!
Melody has loved writing since she was small, in school she never met a creative writing assignment that she didn't love. She is lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who encourages her to write. When she was laid off from her job of 14 years, he was supportive about letting her stay home and take care of their son. During that time she discovered hockey-romances and found a renewed love of reading as well as a passion for writing.
Melody spends her spare time reading hockey romances. At holiday time she really enjoys any romance about Christmas. When it is the hockey off-season, she enjoys swimming and spending her days out in the sun.


Score on Me is a good book. It definitely fulfills the wishes of those of us who would love nothing more than to get together with our favorite hockey players.

Kat was a relatable character, far from perfect. And to see her change and grow throughout the book was pleasure. She was a good, strong character and I enjoyed the fact that she had body issues. It was easier to relate to her and many more people will probably be able to connect with her because of it. 

Kris was a sweetheart and I was glad I could get to practice my french skills. He was really sweet, and I found myself wishing I could find someone like him. He's just sigh.

There were a few awkward phrasings in the book but they were mostly small, little things that didn't detract from the book. 

We were also given Kris' and Kat's perspectives. It allows readers to get a glimpse into their heads, see things from their point of view and see what is going on. It adds to the conflict in the book and I enjoyed both perspectives.

Score on Me is a good book and if you're dying for some hockey romance or pining for your own hockey man, than give it a look!
