Review: The Hot Shot (Game On #4) by Kristen Callihan

Posted on

First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…
What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.
No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

My Review

“One day, Chess, you’re going to feel safe enough to let go. And I’m going to be there to catch you when you fall.”

“Every emotion I’m capable of having amps up with him. I feel. I live. I breathe/ The world is more real when he is there.”

The Hot Shot is the fourth book in the Game On Series, and while it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, I do want to let you know that this story fits in the same timeline as The Game Plan. So, while you don’t need to read The Game Plan first, I just want to let you know that there might be some spoilers if you haven’t already read it.

The Hot Shot is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Chess and Finn. Chess and Finn couldn’t be more opposites if they tried. Chess is a smart mouthed, snarky photographer. She gives just as good as she gets and isn’t afraid to step up to the challenge with Finn. But, under the surface there is more to Chess than meets the eye. She’s fun, smart and has a personality that matches her bold hair color. She challenges Finn in ways that he could never imagine and for poor Finn, it looks like he might of just met his match….There is nothing more that Finn loves than playing football. He loves the game and loves woman. Chess is absolutely not his type, but some how, Chess has managed to get under his skin. The more time he spends with her, the more he wants to know her. He knows getting close is a bad idea because Chess is not a casual fling type girl. But, when circumstances beyond their control throws them together. These two won’t be able to fight the pull and will burn hotter than ever….

Overall, I thought The Hot Shot was a great read. It was fun and entertaining. I loved the banter between Chess and Finn. I thought the two of them were a lot of fun together and I looked forward to seeing what would happen next. I thought Chess and Finn had excellent chemistry. I loved the way they challenged each other and I loved watching Finn slowly fall. Sure Finn and Chess had some ups and downs along the way, but that made their relationship even better to me. They had a great friendship and their relationship grew leaps and bounds throughout the story, and was just fantastic to watch them navigate their way to a happy ending.

 The Hot Shot was a really enjoyable read. I was able to finish it in just one sitting. I loved the characters and found them easy to connect with. I thought The Hot Shot was well written and very entertaining. It had just the right amount of drama, angst, romance and of course sexy good times. Overall a terrific read!
