They’re two sharks in a fish tank . . .


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.


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.


Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan is the second standalone in the Hoops series and I have got to say that I may have loved Jared and Banner slightly more than August and Iris, although just barely. The author’s writing is beyond incredible and her character development is always on point! My heart goes into overdrive every single time I pick up one of her stories and the emotional rollercoaster I go on time and time again is always worth it.

Ever since devouring Long Shot earlier this year I have wanted to get my hands on another book in this series and although I was really hoping we’d get Lotus and Kenan. However, after reading this one I am so glad that Jared and Banner’s story was first. I absolutely loved these two and the fact that their story was a combination of an enemies-to-lovers and second chance romance made me love it even more. I mean come on those are two of my all-time favorite genres so there was no way I wouldn’t love it. Oh and did I mentioned how hilarious their banter was because it totally was and their chemistry was undeniable!

Readers make sure to one-click this beautifully captivating story today and fall in love with Jared and Banner!
