Taking His Shot by Kendall Ryan Review



* * * * * * * * * *


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…two huge secrets implode around us, threatening everything we’ve built.

I love hockey romances, and I have loved every single book in Kendall Ryan’s Hot Jocks series, so I’m sad to see it come to an end. But Ryan gave the series a fantastic finish in Harper and Jordie’s romance. Every one of the standalone stories in this series has been a completely addictive blend of heartfelt emotion, heat and humor. These stories are lighter-hearted, but there’s just enough angst in them to keep things interesting and the reader engaged in these endearing characters’ stories.

The daughter of a single dad, hockey coach, Harper knows all about the rigors and priorities that come with playing hockey at the professional level. She’s done with sacrificing her wants and needs for the game, and she’s got a hard and fast rule against dating hockey players. Jordan, the rookie on the Ice Hawks, has worked hard to get to this point in his career. He’s used to women throwing themselves at him, so when Harper outright refuses to go out with him, he’s intrigued. But when he does something he normally doesn’t do—chase the girl and take the time to actually get to know her—he realizes he really likes Harper. He’s watched as his teammates have each met and fallen in love with the women who are their other halves, and he wants his shot at a real chance with Harper to build something lasting and genuine.

Taking His Shot was a sexy and heartwarming love story, and I was swept right into Harper and Jordie’s opposites attract romance. Crackling chemistry, witty banter and a genuine connection I couldn’t get enough of, I practically inhaled Harper and Jordie’s heart-tugging, heat-filled happily ever after. Taking His Shot by Kendall Ryan gets five smooches from me!
