Publisher's Summary

JARED  

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.  

Her anger is...arousing. 

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth, gets me...well, you know.  

If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.  

I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it. 

I'm sure what you meant to say is, "Coming right up."  

They say even rich men don't always get what they want, but those men don't know how to play the game. 

The trick is to keep them guessing. Take Banner. 

She assumes she's winning, but this game? 

She doesn't even know how to play.  

BANNER  

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I'd have exactly one dollar.  

One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out. 

I've moved on. I've found success in a field ruled by men. 

Anything they can do, I have done better. 

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to. 

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?  

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats. 

I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.  

Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real. 

But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

Readers be warned on the premise of this story

I rarely leave reviews, however I was so excited to listen to this book after looking through the reviews and in turn was grossly disappointed at the premise of this story (and surprised that not one review highlighted this). You cannot romanticize cheating and pull off a heroine that is supposed to be an amazing human when they have no respect or care for someone they love so deeply, even if only in friendship. It's a contradiction in on itself and the only reason I kept reading was to see if there was any redeeming her... there wasn't. It actually bothers me that it didn't bother anyone else. I understand everyone is flawed, but you can still differentiate right from wrong, and I felt like we were being forced to see Banner in a positive light. I just couldn't. Hoping that any reader that feels the same way reads this before they purchase the book. Cheating is cheating people, no matter what bow you wrap it in.

A 10/10 listen!

Every Kennedy Ryan novel I read or listen to has me thinking she’s outdone herself, but with Block Shot... oh my god. It is perfection and the masterful narration takes it to another level. This is the elusive 10/10 listening experience I pour over countless books to get to. Finding a book exactly this good, that hits all of the right notes, is a rare and special thing.

Strong characters & powerful writing makes best audio!

Kennedy Ryan writes such powerful characters that are unapologetic and so real. Banner is a latina who is Mensa smart but struggled with weight issues and Jared is a heartless (or so he thought) who fell hard for her in college but due to a misunderstanding, they parted on very bad terms. I love how strong Banner is and Seraphina Valentine totally brought it. The badass sports agent who a heart of a lion. Teddy Hamilton did a phenomenal job bringing Jared to life in all his dickishness. He loves her with all his heart and would do anything for her. Sooo powerful and the sexy times are crazy hot. Definitely going to my re-listen list! One of the best in 2019!

Real and emotional

Kennedy Ryan delivers another emotional story that is raw and real. Jared is great. While there were times I didn’t feel he showed Banner the respect she deserves, he’s not all the heartless prick he acts to be, and Banner is his world and he’s not afraid to show it or fight for her. But Banner, wow, what an amazing heroine Kennedy gives us in this story. She is one of the best I’ve read. One of a kind. A force. “Don’t lose your compass, and that doesn’t mean don’t win. Win. Fight. Conquer. You have just as much right to success as anyone who works for it. It may be a jungle, and they may be lions . . .” She pauses, her eyes finding mine again, holding mine. “But the daughter of a lion is still a lion, and this is your domain.” While there is an aspect of this story I struggle with reading, I still very much enjoyed the story. This is so much more than a love story and involves so many aspects. It’s about self-worth, insecurities, and guilt. It’s filled with fear, selflessness, forgiveness, and love. It makes you think. It makes you feel. It’s heartbreaking and raw. It’s written beautifully and with passion and heart. “Good people may do bad things, wrong things, but they are still good people. Still capable of doing amazing things.”

This audio is amazing!!!

Jared bulldozed himself into Banner's life. Kennedy Ryan wrote a great book here. The narration by Teddy was excellent. I've read many a book narrated by him but he keeps getting better and better. Worth the credit. And I loved Seraphina. Everything about this audio was a winner.

Good but...

The only reason I didn’t give it more stars is because I really hated the main male character. I know he’s suppose to be a jerk but I wished it was dialed back just a little bit to make me feel more sympathetic for him. He made me feel like he doesn’t deserve her. Not a good quality for a romance. But I made it through the end and was entertained.

Amazing

This book was amazing. Jared is the bad boy we all hate to love (but do anyway) and Banner is that girl you want to be best friends with. Don’t expect a gentleman. Jared plays dirty and fights dirty and makes nary an excuse. Banner has a sturdy backbone and just one soft spot that’s going to make her challenge everything she stands for. I thought it would be impossible to top Long Shot. I stand corrected and can’t wait to dive heart first into book #3.
