Editorial Reviews

Review

"With a Score book, I usually anticipate a light-hearted romantic comedy with a good-guy hero and a feisty heroine, and this book is light years beyond that. It's a story that's impossible to put down with characters who will own your heart. ~ BookAddict Romance Blog

A seriously scorching hot and hilarious page-turner! ~ About That Story

Flirty and hella sexy but with enough depth to give you all the feels, By a Thread is one book that should be on every rom-com enthusiast's to-be-read list. It's just that wonderful. ~ harlequinjunkie.com

Score writes laugh out loud romance that will have you wiping tears of laughter from your eyes. 5/5 ~ Amity Book Blog

The interactions between Ally and Dominic are humorous, the chemistry hot but that doesn't mean that it doesn't pack an emotional punch. This is one story you don't want to miss. ~ Kari's Book Reviews and Revelations

I know this is going to seem dramatic but this book is a work of art, a masterpiece. I don't know when I have laughed harder reading. If you love Devil Wears Prada then you will fall for this book. ~ Nix Reads Romance

This is a beautifully written story which is filled with witty and sarcastic banter, and is a humorous, steamy enemies / lovers romance story, which had me enthralled throughout this addictive page turner. ~ Wendy's Book Blog

This is the book you NEED to read during this difficult time (or any time actually), it was that good. ~ B-Books Review

Can you believe I actually loved this book so much that I don't want to write a review just so that you can blindly pick it up to fall in love with it too? ~ The Book Club Trio

This book is timely in its subject matter. No spoilers. It's a tough read at times because people can be icky. Plain and simple. But knowing there are still good people at work in the world, standing up and doing what's right is good for the soul. This book generated all the feels. Tears (there are some genuinely touching moments in this book), so many laughs (it made me so happy), quite a few moments when you wanted to pump your fist and say, "YES!" when an idiot got what they deserved, and those oh so satisfying heartbeat moments that make you smile and sigh. Lucy continues to make me a happy, contented reader with bold firey heroines who are not afraid to stand up for themselves and the men who love and pursue them. You need this book in your life. ~ Beautiful Chaos Reviews

This girl has got some major writing chops. I loved everything about this book. The writing style, the story line, the genuine feel of the characters. It was emotional and sweet and everything in between. The H is definite swoon material and I loved how independent the h is. I was captivated by this story from the very first page. It's not a short read but it flows nicely and the pages turned quickly for me. I can't wait to dive into the authors backlist. ~ Reviews from the Heart

This book started at a really high level and pedal to metal kept up the banter, the pacing, the frustration and stubbornness, and seriously smokin' hot sexy times. (I am talking really sexy times, people.) This Book Was Everything. PERIOD. ~ Wendy's Thoughts Reviews

This is more than just a grumpy boss story but one about a woman making the boss see he can be so much more with a little bit of love and never giving up. This book had it all for me which is why Lucy Score is definitely an author to look out for more of her talented imagination. Loved it. ~ Melena's Reviews

Score doesn't allow the romance to fly away, ethereal in its romantic telling. Instead, she grounds it with the truths of our time and our need to be vigilant in protecting others from harm. All of these qualities conspire to bring her readers a story that leaves you feeling ebullient. ~ Professor Romance

The sparks between Ally and Dominic was off the charts hawt! Their love/hate relationship was so compelling and I was so invested in both of them. Both Ally and Dominic love hard and when past insecurities and secrets come to light, they both stumble and falter. I was moved! I was crying! And I was cheering hard for the two of them! The dialogue between all the characters is so smart, funny and moving! Ms. Score has a true talent for writing and her stories are some of the best I have read! ~ Bibliophile Chloe

Lucy Score manages to perfectly marry The Devil Wears Prada with the #MeToo movement, and she does it brilliantly. ~ Sunny Shelly Reads

This one's a funny, sweet, sexy, and hilarious-at-times read that I highly recommend. Then, when you're done reading, go watch The Devil Wears Prada. You'll thank me later. ~ Romance Rehab

The banter is to die for and I had to keep putting the book down to laugh. ~ By the Bookcase

This book is full of emotion. I laughed, like so much! I cried tears of both joy and sadness. I swooned, and not gonna lie, I could feel the heat! ~ Novel Momma
