Publisher's Summary

Baseball wasn't supposed to be a game of life and death.

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was 17. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six-foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.

I tried to stay away. I couldn't.

Then, the team started losing.

Women started dying.

And everything in my perfect world broke apart.

A favorite Summer Listen

I went into reading Moonshot expecting a baseball romance. What I found was so very much more than that. The story was fun and flirty, an element of forbidden romance, a great mystery that really engaged and kept me turning pages, and through it all a story of Love, real and true and epic.

"Men had been killed over kisses like that. Careers had been lost. Hearts had been stolen."

Amazing story paired with Amazing narration made for a favorite summer listen!!

Great listen! Loved it!

What made the experience of listening to Moonshot the most enjoyable?

I loved the voices and narrator. The voice really fit the story and brought it to life.

What does Samantha Summers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I both read and listened to this story and I loved how she brought this story to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I wanted to find out what would happen next!

Any additional comments?

A great audio experience!

2.5 Moonshot Stars

I don’t usually read blurbs if I can help it, I usually go with the feel of a book, for example if I see a ton of people raving about a book then I am not afraid to admit I will pick it up.
I kind of wish I hadn't picked this one up. I know, I know. A ton of people liked it and that’s great for them.

No it has nothing to do with the cheating why I didn't like this book. I just didn't connect with Ty. I enjoy the beginning I thought it was going somewhere it didn't.

I can’t say I hated it because I listened all the way through. I did enjoy the narrator she did an excellent job.
I will end this with, I did enjoyed the end chapter.

I would have preferred Book over Audible

I wavered between 3 and 4 stars and ultimately decided to go with 3 for a few different reasons. The first being that I listened to this via Audible instead of actually reading it. In this case, I think I would have preferred to read the actual book. The story is told from different POV's, yet narrated solely by a woman that distracted me by how she read the male voices. Don't get me wrong, overall she did a good job, and I can't quite put my finger on the reason, but I found myself thinking about how weird she would sound instead of listening to the words she was saying. Might just be a personal preference. I wasn't crazy about the short chapters, but once I got in the flow, it didn't bother me as much. I did struggle with the last portion of the book. While I did not correctly guess the killer, I was surprised by it. But, I felt like the reasons made it feel almost a little forced for the sake of mystery. With all that said, I loved Ty and Chase's story. It wasn't always pretty, but their love for each other was sweet, strong and real.

Baseball? How about Amaz-balls!?

I haven't read this book, but I have listened to it. Listening to it has made me want to read it as well. Few authors/narrators cause me to want to pick up the book for a second "reading" after having heard it. Samantha Summers did a fantastic job narrating the different characters and helping give the story that extra POP that got my imagination going. I've read a few of Alessandra Torre's books, but this is by far my favorite. She is always throwing curveballs (pun not originally intended, but I am going with it) that make her stories stand out from other authors--this one has been the best so far.

Surprising

Alessandra Torre always surprises me. He mix of romance, sensuality and suspense is mesmerizing. I recommend this book.

Inevitable love

Ty grew up around the baseball diamond. She knew what the men were like at very young age. TY wasn't prepared for Chase Stern, the up and coming player. He sparked something she never felt before, but it was forbidden. Thing spiral out of control, yet these two had an intense connection. But was it enough for them to stay and fight the connection or would they be lost to each other.

This book was a slow burner for me, but once I got in it I couldn't put it down. Loved the audio version of this book too, the emotions the reader gave made it even more spectacular.

Good Read

I enjoyed this one by Ms. Torre. It’s been a while since I read anything from her. It had its typical suspense, romance, struggle. All the things I’ve love about her writing. It wasn’t predictable who the killer was. I was thinking someone else. I was expecting more sex scenes, but then again, most of the book Ty was a teenager. So I guess it was appropriate. I was mad at Ty when she chose her husband. Good story plot though. It was needed.
I loved the ending. Overall a great read. On to the next one.

not my favorite....

I LOVE baseball romances. But this one wasn't a favorite. Narrator was enjoyable and it was a quick read.



*SPOILER*
I hated that the H and h missed so much precious time together. The HEA is appreciated but I felt like I want rooting for Chase in the middle of the book. I hated that I didn't have 1 string H to cheer for. I guess I'm just a gal who likes the expected romance.
