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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Well...this is me being stunned silent after reading Block Shot. I don't know if I have the words to describe everything I felt while reading Kennedy Ryan's latest masterpiece but I'm gonna try.
Banner. BANNER!! She is every woman. Powerful beyond measure. Beautiful. Intelligent. Fearless. Insecure about the things that shouldn't matter but do. A lion in a mans world. Unafraid to go the extra mile, but with heart. And that big, giving, selfless heart had been broken more than once. None worse than when Jared slayed it in college.
Oh Jared. Where to start with this guy? He claims to not have a heart. To be cold. Calculated. Unrelenting. And he totally is. But he is also tenacious. He worked hard to build a name and company for himself. And when a twist of fate brings his biggest regret back into his life, he seized the opportunity to get what he really wants, what he's always wanted and never been able to forget; Banner.
Cue the tension. Sparks flew between these two- and they weren't all sexual. There was a lot of animosity and hurt coming from both sides over what happened all those years ago. It took a lot of work, and more than words for Jared to convince Banner what his true intentions were but little by little she let him in. Can you see me fanning myself? Even when she wanted to Banner couldn't resist Jared. These two were super hot and heavy between the sheets, in the office at the...you get the point.
I was so ready for them to sail off into their happily ever after, but fate, the cruel beast that she is, had other plans. Oh my heart. It just broke for them. Especially Banner. She was in an impossible position and no matter what someone was going to be hurt more than she already was. Though the choice was obvious, because there truly was no choice to be made, it took a while for her head to catch up to her heart.
Grit. Integrity. Determination. Heart. Take all of that- add in two self-motivated to succeed people, a hearty dose of angst, a heaping of life, a whole heck of a lot of patience and forgiveness and you've got Jared and Banner's love story. It was unlike anything I've ever read because it was theirs. Kennedy Ryan gave me the real and I devoured every complicated and blissful moment of it.
5 Star Review by Lorena
All I have to say is that this book was EVERYTHING I imagined it to be and more!
Gahhh! This story, I just fell in love immediately with both Banner and Jared. I think this is my favorite couple of the year!
It's so hard to get into details about this book. Both Jared and Banner were strong characters and neither one backed down from a challenge whether it was personal or business. I loved how they would go back and forth against/towards each other. The chemistry, their pull was just so strong and I loved them dearly. I will carry this book in my heart for a long time because I don't think I have read a story that was this powerful this year.
Jared, even though he was a very good looking guy, he didn't see that. He only knew that he would go for what he wanted and he normally got what he wanted. He was a smooth talker, but when it came to Banner, he was just so taken with her and not just her beauty, he loved her sassiness, her smartness and just how great of a person she was overall.
Banner had a crush on Jared ever since she first laid eyes on him, but she never in a million years thought that such a handsome guy would even turn twice when it came to her.
Jared stole my heart from beginning to end and he is now my number one bbf!
