Long Shot: A HOOPS Novel (Hoops #1) Reviews
Review at Of Pens and Pages.
It’s only in the contrast of night, when things are darkest, that the stars shine."
It's 5 stars. No question. If I can give all the stars, I will. This left me completely speechless. You guys, you need to read this! This book completely wrecked me, then slowly built me up again. It's a story of heartache and healing, and ultimately of love. Plus, I've never read a basketball romance before, so I was so happy to read that.
Before I get into it, I have to warn ...more
I L♥VE sports romance and Kennedy Ryan so this is a MUST READ!!
Yep, what I said above the graphic, prior to reading the book, rings true! The combo of a favorite author and sports romance made for one stellar read.
The bravery demonstrated in this story is the heart and soul of this book. It’s always easy to judge someone else’s situation and have a solution for their situation but without walking in their shoes no one can know what it’s like to wear those shoes.
The hero is August ...more
“Even when you think you’re defeated, dig deeper. Go harder. Press, because there is something worth it on the other side.”
Long Shot is a book that left me speechless once I finished reading. That doesn’t happen to me very often, but the story was so profound, it took me a while to find my words. This book is unlike any story I’ve read before. It’s one of those books that will stay with me. If I had one word to describe it, I would say it’s powerful. It’s real, raw, intense, and ...more
Overall Opinion: Yet again I feel like a broken record here. Why oh why can't we get some good closure?! We have such troublesome times that we experience with these characters...is it so much to ask for some more of the good stuff thrown in to balance it all out?! The drama seemed a little too OTT as well. At the time of reading it I let it go thinking that we would get those happy times to even it all out, but sadly I don't feel like I got enough to justify it all. I enjoyed the book ...more
5 “BestOf2018Read” Stars
This book.......took me on a journey. A very raw, emotional, stripping of my soul journey. One that made me feel as if I was in the story experiencing all the highs and lows, the joys and sorrows, the hopes and fears, and the strength and determination of characters that engrained themselves into my soul. With the visual clarity of the author’s vivid, heartfelt, and passionate words, this story felt real, raw and painfully open and honest. A melancholy yet hopeful journe ...more
⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2! Long Shot (stand-alone). A bad decision, years of regrets, a love that could never be, but for the dream that kept them alive!

“The heart speaks in whispers, but sometimes by the time we listen, it’s too late.”
It’s been days since I finished reading this book and I still have NO IDEA how to put coherent words down. I’ll tell you this. I went into LONG SHOT by Kennedy Ryan completely BLIND! I didn’t read ANY of the early reviews and I barely read the synopsis, because once you see this author’s name next to the title, there really is no point. You’re gonna love it! Your mind is gonna be blown! It’s gonna be an EPIC EX ...more
