Publisher's Summary

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies - that's the PG version.
He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies.
And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.   

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.   

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And dumped.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?   

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends.
We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together...(Except we did.)   

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA. ​
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.   

Teardrop Shot is a 100K standalone sports romance.

Great story, loved it.

I really loved this story. It brings attention to different aspects of grief, and coping with it. While it has a undertone of emotionality to it, it still is a light and upbeat story for the most part. It was balanced really well between heavy and light heartedness and it was performed excellently. My only two critics are 1) Dan Bittner literally only performed one chapter, and it was a short one. So perhaps it should say performed by Savannah with a guest appearance by Dan. Which is really totally on Audible I think.
And 2) I wished this story had more than one chapter from the male POV of the H. I wanted to see how Forrester actually thought about things, about Charlie with her quirk, his own issues etc.
that being said the story still does amazingly well at bringing both characters to life and letting you see their side of things. It’s excellently performed and it’s definitely a great story. Absolutely recommend.

A tear in my eyes

I absolutely love this story Reese and Charlie is everything. I had no problems listening to any of this story. I think Savannah Peachwood and Dan Bittner did an excellent job with the narration. Savannah brought them questions to life.

Loved it!

Teardrop Shot is now my favorite Tijan book yet! I laughed, I cried and I didn't want it to end. The narrators did a phenomenal job, as well!

Teardrop shot brought the waterworks!

Teardrop shot is amazingly funny and emotionally sad all at the same time. It’s the best emotional roller coaster read for me all year!
Charlie. Self proclaimed crazy person. Emotionally shut down. Hilarious. Sad. Basketball enthusiast. Reese Forster mega-fan. When she lands her old job back at the camp she previously worked for she never knew it would change her entire world.

Reese Forster. Basketball star. Gorgeous. Wanted by fangirls. Estranged from family. Not looking for a “gnat”. When his pro basketball team decides to use a small time camp nowhere due to his brothers antics he doesn’t know that his world will be flipped upside down.

Charle and Reese both have so much emotional baggage between them that it seems that a relationship is not likely to work. But with her crazy and his need for distraction it is a recipe for love. All the pitfalls that have been in their pasts hold them back from one another, they finally learn to break down the walls and help each other move on.

Teardrop shot is one of Tijan’s best works yet! I fell in love with Charlie and her off the wall questions. So much in this book struck home with me and made me really relate. I truly loved every minute. 5 stars all the way!!

Enjoyed it

Teardrop Shot was an emotional sports romance that will give you all the feels. The story was a mix of quirky humor and heavy heartbreaking scenes. While I loved Reese from the start, Charlie was a bit annoying in the beginning, and she distracted me from the story but I eventually warmed up to her a bit later on.
The audible version of this novel was narrated by Savannah Peachwood and Dan Bittner. These two did a fabulous job portraying all the characters and I enjoyed listening to them narrate thos novel.

LOL FUNNY

I adore Tijan! This is another great book. The story is funny alongside tragedy. Tijan knows how to pull all the FEELS in together. I also appreciate how she releases her new audiobooks into the escape package.

Teardrop shot

I loved this book and after having read this book Savannah Peachwood &Dan Bittner made these characters come alive. Tijan is one of my favorite authors and I always know she will deliver the feels. This book was just as great and I really loved the quirky questions Charlie came out with and how Reese responded without batting an eye it helped them both enjoy little things in life when there were big things trying to bring them both down.

2.5 why such high reviews?

I was really looking forward to this book. I REALLY, REALLY was hoping to LOVE it. But sadly, I couldn’t force it. I thought this book was boring with tons of fillers. I did like the camp part but it felt off. At first I thought Charlie had some type of Tourette’s (which would’ve made the book a lot better) but then for her random q’s to be a defense mechanism fell flat. I know what she’s been through was tragic but I thought the story didn’t live up to it’s full potential. I like K Webster’s writing for things like this. However, I did really enjoy Tijan’s book Ryan’s Bed. I think this one just missed its mark.
The narration was good but I would’ve liked to hear more of Dan Bittner.

You go girl!

I like Tijan’s books but this is my favorite. Was a little disappointed at the 1 chapter male POV but I’ll get over it because it was the only disappointment.

Wow! 5 Stars is NOT Enough. I Loved It.

Flipping heck! I am an emotional wreck! What a truly wonderful story, it was funny, it was romantic, it was so so emotional (for me especially, dementia is a disease I’ve had first hand dealings with). Okay, no more emotional talk, let’s talk basketball, I know nothing about it, but I’m going to make it my mission to watch a game and find out more, especially if there are some real life players like Reese or Juan, because let me tell you, those guys leave all the rest in the dust, they’re perfect book boyfriends. The story follows the quirky and very heartbroken Charlie, an extreme basketball fan. So when she finds herself working the courts at a training camp hosting her dream team with her dream player, NBA superstar, Reese Forster, things start looking up for her (if only she can get her head screwed on straight and stop all the verbal diarrhoea spewing out of her mouth). Reese also has his own issues, he’s dealing with a not so easygoing unsupportive family. Together they eventually learn to let each other in, and things are looking peachy, until that little bit of doubt creeps in and tries to ruin everything. Have they got what it takes to take that extra step, do they even want to try? Strangely wonderful characters, a wonderful story, with wonderful writing, as usual. I was lost in the story, addicted from the first to the very last page. If I could give a book more than five stars, this would be it. Having read both the ebook and having listened to the audio. I’ve got to say, I was way more emotional listening to the audio. Such a wonderful story. Savannah Peachwood did a fantastic job at narrating. Dan Bittner too was brilliant, sadly he was only in for a few minutes, but for those few minutes I was in heaven. Highly recommend.
