Description

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.

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.”

Teddy Hamilton is all you need to know

So far this is the best in the series. Teddy Hamilton is by far one of my favorite narrators. This was a great second chance romance. A misunderstanding ruined what would have been the start of a relationship between Banner and Jarred. When they cross paths years later Jared does whatever he has to do to get Banner back.

Breathtakingly beautiful

OMG this book was amazing. It was refreshing having a female lead that was so strong and no nonsense. Jarred was the perfect alpha, and together they were fire! I loved Zo too (hope he gets his book, but I doubt he will 😔). Jarred stole my heart though. I guess because of WHO he was at the beginning of the book, so sweet and caring, even his asshole tendency in the second half of the book could not erase who I knew him to be. The narration was amazing. DEFINITELY A MUST READ!!!

Aweful main character!

In romance novels you want to cheer and root for the love interest, but Garrett was an awful person. Who would want someone like him over Zo? Totally ruined the book for me.

AMAZING. EVERYTHING I NEEDED,

The intro was hard. Really hard. I didn’t like reading Banner’s body opinions, it was a hard listen. The intro being short but not lacking in drama or even dare I say it, trauma… The courtship and self-growth is so worth it!
Her self-talk was hard to listen to, the negative body talk is extreme and difficult to digest. And I am saying that from my own perspective, as a possible victim to this kind of self-ideology, it was a hard listen. I once (and still) struggled with those negative thoughts, especially in this day and age with social media and such. I have always fought hard for my own self esteem and confidence. There are periods in my life when I could actually relate to those thoughts and periods in my life where I would scoff at that and metaphorically slap my past self for feeling those things. Why am I dedicating so much time to this part? Banner’s character shows that even though she fought hard for herself as well, these dips in confidence, esteem and eating patterns happen constantly. I also got to thinking about conversations I have with close friends, girls not my size, and they struggle with these thoughts, with these confidence killing talks they also have in their minds. Some beautiful and what I consider strong friends will speak so ill of their body. And I will just sit and mentally gape at some of the things they think and want to shake them. So even though Banner’s size and the sporadic self-hatred may seem extreme to some readers, it’s important to remind ourselves that these extreme thoughts a plus size woman has, happen to thinner, smaller women. And if you feel like I felt reading them, which was disgust and even anger, then it should be taken as a moment of reflection, especially when you feel inadequate. Use Banner the anger you have towards her thoughts and slap yourself back to reality. You are beautiful, worthy of love, you are sexy and seducing.
Other than that, I will say Jared Foster her love interest, is slightly alpha, but I am just going to say it, I LOVED it!!! They were each other’s exact match, and remember when I mentioned wanting to slap the negative talk out of Banner’s mind/ our heads? Well he was the human embodiment of this. He was unapologetically fierce in his admiration to Banner, it was so yummy to read. And his “alphaness” (not a word I know) was exactly what some women look for in that instant. I take care of myself, I constantly make decisions all day, I carry the burden of a million different people, please tell me how you want it. HAHAHA!!! Banner’s internal dialogue says it all, “A possessiveness I never thought I would want.”
Before I go, FREGGIN BANNER is such a bad bitch, she negotiates and has a work ethic that blows me away!!!
Oh and how about Jared, “I wouldn’t want to stop her. Banner is mine and wholly her own.”
GAH!
Kennedy Ryan did it again.

Opposites Attract!

She is intelligent and has a heart of gold. He is a hard core Alpha Male who can't get her out of his system, even after ten years.
They are.opposites, but are drawn to each other like magnets.
Great story, loved Banner and Jared. Now onto the last book in this series.
