Taking His Shot By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: June 9, 2020

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.

The bestselling Hot Jocks series is back with one last stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is perfect for you! Each book features a brand new couple to fall in love with.

Taking His Shot is the 7th and final book in the Hot Jocks Series and it follows the story of Jordie and Harper. Harper has been burned by hockey players in the past and has made it her number one rule to never date a hockey player again. But, as the saying goes, rules are made to be broken. Harper’s father is in a bind and needs her help, and that is how Harper finds herself at a charity auction; the prize-one date with her….Team rookie Jordie is living the life and is on top of the world and when he ends up winning a date with Harper, his world is about to be turned upside down…..

Overall, I thought this book was a really cute read. I thought the story line was fun and entertaining. I loved the way that Jordie and Harper started out. Harper really knocked Jordie off of his game. Not only did he meet a woman that challenged him and actually said no to a date with him, but just being around Harper made his mind go to mush and the stupidest things would come out. Now, Jordie was in no way perfect and sometimes, I really wanted to knock some sense into him, but I loved his persistence and determination to win Harper over. And Harper…well, I loved how she didn’t make things easy for Jordie. She had her reservations about dating a hockey player and she stuck to her guns. That being said, at the end of the day the chemistry between Jordie and Harper was so burning hot that there was no way these two could stay away from one another. I really enjoyed watching their story unfold and looked forward to seeing how it would all come together in the end.

Taking His Shot was a fun and entertaining read. I devoured it easily in just a single setting. I had a great time getting to know Jordie and Harper. I thought their story was fun, filled with excellent chemistry and had just the right amount of drama added to it. As always, it was fun catching up with old friends and seeing how their stories intertwined with Jordie and Harper’s.

Taking His Shot was a terrific read from beginning to end. I’m sad that this is the last book in the Hot Jocks Series, but at the same time, I’m excited to see what this author has in store for us readers next.
