Moonshot by Alessandra Torre

Title: Moonshot
 Author: Alessandra Torre
Release Date:  July 4, 2016

Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death… 

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase... he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil. 

I tried to stay away. I couldn’t. 

Then, the team started losing. 
Women started dying. 
And everything in my world broke apart.

Have you grabbed a book and completely submerged yourself into it? That is exactly what happened to me with Moonshot.

I love how the story developed and even the twists I encountered. To date, Moonshot is my favorite book by Alessandra Torre.

The main characters are Chase Stern and Tyler Rollins. Theirs is a case of forbidden love.

Ty is the daughter of one of the Yankees players. She grew up with the team and everyone respects her. The first time she encounters Chase, he's naked and she is only seventeen. After this, she tries to avoid him at all times before her dad realizes they had a spark.

Chase is only twenty-three, playing the field and doing some drugs. When a situation with the wife of a teammate causes trouble for his team he finds himself traded to the Yankees. On his first day, he meets Ty and he knows she's off limits but weeks after he can't seem to stay away from her.

You would think the story is done... Boy meets Girl, Girl falls in love -> HEA....nope..great twists are coming and that's all I'm going to say about the plot.

However, I can say that I loved both characters. Their desire, angst, and love were all too real. I knew they couldn't keep away from each other. The inevitable was bound to happen.

My respects to Mrs. Torre for weaving such a good story full of suspense, thrill and love.

Cliffhanger: No

5/5 Fangs
