ARC Review: A Shot At Forgiveness by Cardeno C.


Sometimes to find love, you must first learn forgiveness.

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.

Sandra's rating:

I read the revised 2nd version.

This was smufftastic fun as most CC novels and novellas are, and as such I enjoyed reading it. The premise however would have lent itself better to a longer book instead of this quickly read novella, because the groveling and pursuit I expected wasn't quite there.

I had hoped that Isaac would have to do a lot more begging than what Rafi made him do, and I didn't quite buy that these two men after so much time apart, and having broken up in such a bad way, would then go from 'are you talking to me?' to ILYs in such a rapid time.

I did buy that Isaac was hellbent on getting Rafi back, but Rafi seemed to much like a pushover to me. Again, this is probably something that could have been better explored in a longer book.

Not CC's best work, I'd say. Still, the sexy times are hot, and it's a quick read.
