Moonshot by Alessandra Torre
“Life is a series of stupid decisions interrupted by luck.”
Tyler Rollins lived most of her life working as a bat girl for the Yankees, the team her father played for. At seventeen years old she’s close to graduating high school from home school and has secured a job with the Yankees after. Chase Stern also enters her life, a new player for the team. Knowing his reputation, Tyler’s father asks her to stay away from him. But Ty and Chase have a connection from the very beginning, a genuine one that cannot be denied.
“A woman shouldn’t be created in such heartbreakingly beautiful combinations. A woman shouldn’t, in fifteen minutes, have the ability to ruin him for life.”
This book came as a bit of a shock to me, Torre can be a hit or a miss and this book was definitely a hit! I went into this book knowing many of the spoilers (because I am a spoiler whore) and I think it helped me personally with this book as there are aspects not everyone would love. Some things bugged me but I was able to look past them and enjoy.
I was surprised to find that this book had one of my favorite tropes: second chance romance. While the first half of the book was very romantic and sweet, the second half had the angst I wish for in every book with a tiny bit of suspense thrown in. I really loved the romance story, Chase and Ty were amazing. I just wish the suspense aspect was gone because it didn’t seem necessary at all. This book would have been 5 stars without it.
Anyways, I know there are a lot of baseball books out right now but I have really enjoyed every single one I’ve read. So you don’t want to miss out on this one!
“As a teenager, he had corrupted me. As a woman, he had ruined me.”
