Summary

Baseball wasn't supposed to be a game of life and death.

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was 17. 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 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 perfect world broke apart.

A favorite Summer Listen

I went into reading Moonshot expecting a baseball romance. What I found was so very much more than that. The story was fun and flirty, an element of forbidden romance, a great mystery that really engaged and kept me turning pages, and through it all a story of Love, real and true and epic.

"Men had been killed over kisses like that. Careers had been lost. Hearts had been stolen."

Amazing story paired with Amazing narration made for a favorite summer listen!!

A mix of sports romance and murder mystery

Baseball romance fans, this is the book for you. But it is also so much more than a sports romance. This is also a mystery. I guarantee you that you won't be able to figure it out before the author reveals the truth. As a baseball fan myself I loved Ty. She is spunky, independent, strong and the perfect proof that baseball isn't just for the men. And it's no surprise she falls for sexy baseball star Chase. There is more to him than a superstar who likes to party and breaks all the rules. He is just a man running from the pain of his past. Together they are electric! But when they meet life isn't ready for them to live happily ever after. Shoot years ahead. They are both in different phases of their lives but never forgot each other. This is a perfect second chance romance but it's anything but typical. Add in a murder mystery. Just when you think you figured out your feelings for all the characters in this book the author throws in some surprises and I believe your opinions will change just like mine did. I loved this book from beginning to end. I couldn't stop listening. I had to know what was going to happen next! At the end my heart was full but I felt a part of me missing because I had become so attached to these characters. I can't suggest this book enough. Readers will laugh out loud, fall in love, feel heart broken, feel outraged, and swoon over and over again

Inevitable love

Ty grew up around the baseball diamond. She knew what the men were like at very young age. TY wasn't prepared for Chase Stern, the up and coming player. He sparked something she never felt before, but it was forbidden. Thing spiral out of control, yet these two had an intense connection. But was it enough for them to stay and fight the connection or would they be lost to each other.

This book was a slow burner for me, but once I got in it I couldn't put it down. Loved the audio version of this book too, the emotions the reader gave made it even more spectacular.

Great listen! Loved it!

What made the experience of listening to Moonshot the most enjoyable?

I loved the voices and narrator. The voice really fit the story and brought it to life.

What does Samantha Summers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I both read and listened to this story and I loved how she brought this story to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I wanted to find out what would happen next!

Any additional comments?

A great audio experience!

2.5 Moonshot Stars

I don’t usually read blurbs if I can help it, I usually go with the feel of a book, for example if I see a ton of people raving about a book then I am not afraid to admit I will pick it up.
I kind of wish I hadn't picked this one up. I know, I know. A ton of people liked it and that’s great for them.

No it has nothing to do with the cheating why I didn't like this book. I just didn't connect with Ty. I enjoy the beginning I thought it was going somewhere it didn't.

I can’t say I hated it because I listened all the way through. I did enjoy the narrator she did an excellent job.
I will end this with, I did enjoyed the end chapter.

Really?

Chase has zero redeeming qualities. In our first introduction to him, he's sleeping with his teammate's wife. He pursues Ty while she is still a minor. Seventeen, but still. He's in twenties, and in some states, that's illegal -- eighteen is the age of consent. And when he finds out she's no longer a virgin, he is furious and thinks less of her. So much so that he takes back his 'I love you' and breaks up with her, making him the ultimate hypocrite. It also points to her youth and innocence being what he liked most about her. He's a creep, not a "sexy bad boy".

Samantha did a great job performing.

Reviews are right!!

This book definitely was not a standard romance. You really have no clue how this book will end before you get there. I enjoyed this book.

Unique, interesting read

This was such an interesting & unique read. I’m not exactly sure how I thought this would play out, but I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. The storyline was fantastic & I was hook from the very beginning.
