A dozen years, two thousand miles, and a law degree after high school, Rafi Steiner continues to harbor resentment toward Isaac Jones, his childhood bully turned NBA star. When Isaac appears at Rafi's favorite restaurant acting like a long-lost friend, Rafi bluntly dismisses him.
But Isaac is tenacious and he has his heart set on the grown-up version of the boy he always wanted and never forgot. The way Isaac sees it, he and Rafi are perfect for each other, if only he could sink the most important shot of his life: his one shot at forgiveness.
I am unabashedly a huge Cardeno C fan. I adore the blend of naughty and sweet that's the trademark of a CC novel.
That being said, I understand why this novella has mixed reviews. The people who liked it praised the sauciness and humour, and those who didn't focused on the bullying/pseudo-stalking aspect, which undoubtedly plays a big role in the plot.
I'm torn. On the one hand, I wanted Isaac to apologize much more than he did for his high school torment of Rafi. No, not just apologize but GROVEL.
And Rafi needed to grow a backbone and really talk about his past hurts with Isaac vs. being mesmerized by Isaac's six-pack and huge cock.
Not that I blame him, because, well ...
I'm a bit of a slut for growly, possessive men and multicultural relationships and rimming and steamy, raw shower sex and glowing HEAs with rainbows and puppies.
A Shot at Forgiveness is pure CC: racy and yet so damn adorbs.
Nobody does FLUFFY-DIRTY like CC!
So I chose to put my fiction blinders on and enjoy the ride.
P.S. Hot new cover is HOT!
