Publisher's Summary

She says she doesn’t date players. She swears up and down that she’ll never handle my stick. We’ll see about that, sweetheart.  

When I win the pleasure of Harper’s company at a charity auction, I get exactly one date - one shot to win over the gorgeous and feisty brunette.  

Game on. I play hard, and I love a challenge.  

But just when I think I’ve finally carved out my shot...a huge secret implodes around us, threatening everything we’ve built.

Just OK 🤷‍♀️

I wanted you punch Harper, she was such a hypocrite. And quite prejudice when it came to hockey players. She said that men put women in categories they don’t belong in and that was what she did.
Who said dating someone means you need to marry them. Why can’t you just have a good time and see.
I felt bad for Jordy. He was a great person and should not have been put in her narrow minded category.
The narration was just ok. I guess I have heard better, it was fare.
I had to get this to finish the series.
Predictable ending.

Sweet ending to there series...

This is the final book in the Hot Jocks Series and rookie hockey player Jordan "Jordie" Prescott and his coach's daughter, Harper's story entailing a charity auction and a bet. As the coaches daughter and living in the sport life she always set a rule for herself not to date players. Jordie wins a date with Harper (at the time of the bet he did not know who she was) and is determined to change her mind on going out with him. His persistent and the great lengths he goes through to get Harper to go out with him will have you feeling awww.

Narrators Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood was a good listen portraying Jordie and Harper. They brought some personality to the characters on their growing connection. Two people with personal histories that makes wanting more with anyone can be challenging. When all is said and revealed the question is whether they can take the risk for more.

This was a sweet ending to the series. Snippets of the characters from the other book was an added bonus. You cannot help but fall for all the Hockey players in this series and their stories.

What a Shot

Taking His Shot was such a great story! I love how Harper basically is immune to the charm of hockey players growing up immersed in the world. Jordie is head over heals at first sight but takes the bet he can win her over. Neither one knew what a little persistence would do and how it would turn both their worlds upside down. The perfect love story to end the series. Harper and Jordie were a great ending to the series but I will miss these boys so much! I loved each and everyone of The HOT Jocks!

Happy Sad

If it could be possible to be happy sad. That is what I am. I am happy to finally get Jordie’s story but sad this is the last book in this awesome hockey series. The Seattle Hawks are more than just a team, they are family. This is what I loved most about this series.

Jordie is a rookie on the team. Cocky and self-assured in his talents on and off the ice. His one challenge to get Harper to go on a date with him. How do you get a woman who has vowed not to date a hockey player to date one? This is the journey that kept me reading and once he got her. How does he keep her? The story was more than sigh worthy. It was swoon worthy with a bit of cringe worthy moments. I was her for all of it.
Although I’m sad to see this series end I am glad I was in for the whole thing.

Nailed to perfection!!

The narrators for Taking His Shot nailed it to perfection. I loved feeling that Jordie and Harper seemed to come to life and it made the story even better with the way this book was narrated by both Teddy and Savannah.
The banter was brilliant, the sense of family was wonderful and the way their friendship progressed was beautiful to hear. I felt like something big was going to happen and I wondered how things would eventuate for them both. This was the perfect audio to end this fantastic series!!!

These narrators are fabulous!!

I just can’t believe the Hot Jock series is over. It’s been so amazing to meet all these guys and their amazing ladies! Jordie is the “baby” of the group and after watching all his friends find happiness, he’s ready for a bit of his own. Of course he chooses Harper, the coach’s daughter. Harper does not go down without a fight and Jordie plans to come out on top! I adored these two and the fun and flirty banter they tossed around. Now’s the time to binge this series!

The narration by Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood were simply amazing together, just like always! I swear, I could feel the smiles on both their faces when they were flirting back and forth… as if it was a real situation. They not only sound fantastic bringing that story to life but they made it come alive right in my mind!

Last in the series but certainly not least!

I loved Jordy and Harper’s story so much! I love that Harper made him work for it and I love how Jordy never gave up! Teddy and Savannah did an amazing job narrating this book and made it such a pleasure to listen to.
