Book Review — Moonshot by Alessandra Torre

Book Review — Moonshot by Alessandra Torre
Baseball wasn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase … he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil. I tried to stay away. I couldn’t. Then, the team started losing. Women started dying. And everything in my perfect world broke apart.

Review:

Moonshot is told in dual point-of-view, which is my favorite. I love hearing both sides of the story. Dual point-of-view also keeps from having another book told from the other side, which I feel are a bit of a waste. Sorry, had to gush over my love of dual pov.

Moving on. Ty Rollins is the daughter of famed closing pitcher for the New York Yankees. She has been traveling with the team as a bat girl since her Mom died when she was young. The teammates have kept a close eye on her and see her as family.

Ty is in love with all things baseball. She knows all the stats, all the players and even watches ESPN everyday to keep up with it all. I don’t believe anyone knows baseball more than her.

The Yankees are always looking to win The World Series. They will do whatever it takes to clench that title. Ty knew one of the guys had to go and be replaced with the eye catching troublemaker Chase Sterns.

After being bumped from his last team, the clean cut Yankee’s snatch him up. Ty is stoked because she knows this will help them win The World Series. What she doesn’t realize is that her life as she knows it is about to change.

There is instant attraction between the two, but with Ty being only 17, there wasn’t much Chase could do until she became legal. With that in mind, a friendship was born.

As time wore on, their love burned bright and hot like a wildfire. Unfortunately, fate had a way of screwing it.

I found myself flying through the pages. I just couldn’t get enough. I was learning more about baseball than I ever knew before. I grew up with the Chicago Cubs. My husband is the biggest baseball fan I know. I felt like I betrayed him reading about The Yankees when he loathes them more than any sports team out there.

The romance in the book was very well written. AT developed their love in an all-inclusive way that you can’t help but want to devour it. You found yourself grinning. I was reading it while waiting for a prescription at the pharmacy and found myself covering my smile because it was so bright.

My only complaint about the book, and why I gave it 4 stars is because the twist of the story, the murders, just didn’t seem to fit. Let me first say that the murders are not the only twist to the story. There are more.

Back to the murders. It was at least 50% into the book before the murders even started making their way into the story. I found that a little disheartening. Even with the action starting, they still felt forced. In AT’s other books, her twists work seamlessly. You’re like, “Oh, shit!” I honestly feel like the murders could have been left out of the story and Moonshot would have been just as great.

The ending came rushing in like a hurricane. There was no stopping it and you better hold on because it is intense.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. AT never lets you down and you will definitely enjoy this one. I would compare Moonshot to Hollywood Dirt. It isn’t dark and twisted like her other books. It is a sweet romance, but some real shit happens. If you loved Hollywood Dirt, chances are you will really enjoy Moonshot.

Mr Romantic by JA Huss Book Review

Mr Romantic by JA Huss Book Review
Charm is the key to the world.

Charisma, magnetism, sex appeal—that ‘it’ factor that can’t be described.

Nolan Delany has it is spades.

The infamous Mr. Romantic.

And maybe he is out of my league… But I’m going to give it the old college try anyway. Because I didn’t travel two thousand miles for a job interview at his request just to be put out like trash.

Don’t underestimate me, Mr. Delaney.

I’m really not as innocent as I look.
Goodreads

First off let me say I almost didn’t read this book. My sons name is Nolan, and I just couldn’t see myself reading a dirty JA Huss book without seeing my sons face in my head. However, like all the other books, I had to read it. I’m lucky that Nolan’s name isn’t said that much, especially during sex, so I was able to enjoy the book.
Mr. Romantic is a much darker book than Mr. Perfect. We get some new pieces of information on the story arc that will be happening over these five books. We also have some cameos from some of our favorite characters from Julie’s other books. Yay!
Yes, the story has a fantasy rape scene. It is dual consent. If this bothers you, don’t read the book. However, I feel like the scene is important because of what happened in Nolan’s past. There is a lot of conversation before it happens between both parties, so there is no way it happens without consent.
Again, we have the main story between the two main characters, but we also have this mystery overall story arc. With even more hints from Julie, I don’t know if I’m more excited about the series story, or each individual story because that huge storyline is always so good. So good.

Mr Perfect by JA Huss Book Review

Mr Perfect by JA Huss Book Review
Wanting the perfect man doesn’t make me crazy. I just know what I like.
A powerful billionaire in a suit wasn’t even my first choice. Mcallister Stonewall was never on my radar, I didn’t even know he existed.
But I do now.
His hands are all over me at work. The heat of his chest pressing against my bare back as he bends me over the desk is the only thing on my mind.
He is my most forbidden desires unleashed. He is my new secret obsession. He is my Mr. Perfect.
Until the moment I realize… There’s no such thing as perfect.
Goodreads

I love books that have banter back and forth between main characters. It makes you break out in a huge grin that you then try to hide. This happened to me while reading this book while waiting at the pharmacy at Walgreens. I was a grinning idiot.
The heroine lives in the land of fantasy and denial, and Mr. Perfect brings that world to a crashing halt. Like Huss’ other books, the book has hot sexy times and another story arc covering the Mr. series that we haven’t figured out yet.
I loved the book, just like Huss’ previous books. You will not be disappointed.
