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 107k standalone with brand new characters.

REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4 Stars!

The Review: 

The past few years for Charlie have been heartbreakingly painful. Once happy, it was all taken away by a force she couldn’t fight. When we meet her, she’s just had one more life knockdown. But in the middle of all that brokenness, an old friend appears and takes her back to a part of her younger years where things were less complicated.

At the camp she used to work at, she reconnects with old friends and her past self. She gets some insight and time away, but the hard knocks aren’t through with her just yet. She’s still lost. She’s closed herself off. From people and from feelings. She masks her pain with sarcasm, jokes and offbeat, lighthearted banter. But all of that makes Charlie one of the BEST heroine’s in romance I’ve ever read. I LOVED her personality. She might not have thought so, but she had a strength that was admirable. And she rocked the quirky. This chick... wow, I couldn’t help but follow her down the rabbit hole. She was just that endearing. 

When she meets her idol, she’s adorably tongue-tied and spouts the craziest things. But Resse Forster, starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder, has seen crazy, and Charlie isn't it. He’s at the camp to escape his own problems, and the last thing he thought he’d find was something he wouldn’t be able to walk away from. Her pull is undeniable and what starts as an amusing, entertaining friendship, turns into “more” real quick. For both of them. It’s passionate, heartfelt and it invokes feelings in Charlie she thought she’d never feel again.

So what does she do? Read and find out.

This story was AMAZINGLY well told. The subject matter of this book toed a grey line of what should you do, what could you do and how you could have handled such a situation. If written just a little differently, it would have been easy for Charlie’s character to be disliked. But that’s not the case at all. Not even a little. The author handled it BEAUTIFULLY! I LOVED Charlie, so much. She was true to the end. Her happy future was smashed by fate, but as she said, that didn’t stop the feelings or the love and she was true to that all the way through. Even when love presented itself to her again, she was consistent and real. 

And Reese? Boy, oh boy, that man was HOT. He was the PERFECT hero. Patient, kind, loving and generous. He had his own issues, and it would have been easy for him to walk away from her baggage, or get jealous and think it wasn’t worth it. But he didn’t. He stayed. He understood. And that’s just what she needed. And did I mention the man was HOT? Cuz, he totally was! His swoon power was off the charts!

Annnnnd, I have to mention, Reese and Charlie’s chemistry was seductive! They were so much fun to read.

The Wrap Up: 
This author has a talent for writing unique main characters with a charming supporting cast. They are witty, full of life, sometimes heartbreakingly tragic and sometimes so real, it makes my heart pound while I walk their journey with them. But she always makes them relatable, all the while dealing with issues and situations we can all connect with in some way. Their strength is inspirational. This read was just like that. It was emotional, moving, stirred feelings inside me and had me rooted to my reading chair, anxious to see what happened next. Solid writing (as always), captivating story, fantastic characters and it ended with hope and love flowing off the pages. And laughter. There was much laughter to be had while reading this one.

A must read!
