    Kennedy Ryan has done it again! Written a profound, empowering, and important book. Not to mention emotional, angsty, sexy, and completely captivating. THIS my friends, is why she is one of my favorite authors.

    blew me away.

    Banner and Jared meet in college. Banner is the smartest girl Jared has ever met, and Jared is the most handsome guy. They both are insanely attracted to one another, but Banner is not the type Jared usually ends up with. She’s not thin, blonde, or gorgeous. At least not in her own eyes. Jared sees her differently. 


    Something beautiful that happens between Jared and Banner becomes ugly and the two go on with their lives. Both graduate college and become successful sports agents. Fast forward years later, and they are in the same city. Running in the same circles and running into each other constantly. Banner can’t get away from Jared fast enough every time she sees him, but Jared won’t let her go so easily this time. 


    Banner and Jared had a pull to one another. It was there from the moment that they first met and never wavered with time. My favorite thing about this book is how much they both were attracted to the other- not their outsides, but as human beings. Jared wanted Banner no matter what size she was and Banner saw beyond Jared’s beautiful shell and loved the man he was on the inside. They were passionate about one another and that was beautiful.

    As much as this is a powerful love story, it’s also a story of a powerful woman and I loved that! Banner is kick-ass. She is strong, independent, and successful. She doesn’t need a man to complete her, she wants a partner that challenges her. She’s a woman I think many of us can look up to and aspire to be more like.

    is the second book in Ryan’s

    series (though they can be read as stand-alones) and I couldn’t tell you which book I loved more. Both are epic in different ways. And I can’t even wait for KeLo’s story! I’m so excited to get more from this world. This book is a MUST READ. It’s a truly fantastic book that was addicting and brought a great message out along with an amazing romance. Another book that will be going on my 2018 favorites list!

    Block Shot is the second book in the Hoops Series. Three days ago I finished this SECOND CHANCE NOVEL and it has been three day of trying to put my thoughts in order to write this review.

    Block Shot is the second book in the Hoops Series. Three days ago I finished this SECOND CHANCE NOVEL and it has been three day of trying to put my thoughts in order to write this review. There’s always too many emotions to sort out when you read Kennedy’s work. This was supposed to be her less tear jerker book and still I cried HARD. Kennedy, if you wanted less tears you should had written a less

    aaaand a less passionate love story.

    This novel resonated with me. Banner’s experiences and insecurities were like been in front of a mirror. Her thoughts and pain felt to close to my own. Kennedy’s words are poetry and they hit with such power that is IMPOSSIBLE not to FEEL THEM, to love them, to ingrained them in your heart and apply the lessons to your life. This is not just a super sexy passionate love story; it’s also a life lesson. One of the things I love most about Kennedy’s writing is that she isn’t afraid to bring current, controversial and real problems to her stories. So many woman will relate to our heroine and understand my feelings after reading Block Shot. The way Banner ordeals and achievements are presented will make you feel proud and will want to be like her. Makes you want to let your inner LION ROAR.

    Before I get emotional ones more let me tell you a bit about the story and our fascinating couple.

    Banner Morales and Jared Foster met years before they were the moguls and commanding presences in the sport industry. Their carriers will find a way to bring them back together after so many years and will make the undeniable fire of their connection ignite once more.

    Jared is a powerful, respectable man with only one weakness, Banner Morales. He’ll go to any length to get her, damn the consequences. That’s doesn’t sound too swoony in real life but God the way Jared loves Banner surpasses many of my book boyfriends. He truly, deeply

    her. His love, respect and protective instincts towards her will make you fall in love with him HARD. He is the kind of man that will do anything to make sure his love ones and his woman shines, succeed. He will be the silent support and rock. Always waiting to to see if his strength is needed to make sure they are pick up before a fall. Plus his alpha male, sexy hot swagger will make you burn inside out.

    Banner Banner Banner! You are definitely my FAVORITE heroine from all the books I have read from Kennedy. Maybe it’s because her story became more personal in a way but she is sure a woman to admire. A woman that showed the MEN WORLD who is boss, who really rules this world; GIRLS. A woman brave enough, real enough with flaws and the ferocity of a Lion. A beautiful, smart, sexy, strong heroine that for sure will be a role model and inspiration for many as she was for me.

    I already have said TOO much about this book. I just want you all too pick this up because books like this are so difficult to find. This is the type of story that you take with you and never forget. Oh and don’t worry the steamy sexy hot hot scenes we are used to have from Kennedy are definitely present to make your undies burrrrn. You will see a bit of August, Iris and Sarai. I can’t wait for you all to read this marvelous love story. This is a 1-click, no question ask type of book and author. Don’t forget to pick this up Monday September 10.

    “And even in the dark, I know we see each other.”

    Kennedy Ryan never fails to astonish me with her writing prowess. I absolutely loved this character driven, romantic, SECOND CHANCE love story and the characters whom take centre stage. Banner Morales and Jared Foster were firm friends until the devastating day they are not and it is from this point that the love story takes flight in full romantic alpha male style in the formidable world of NBA. Block Shot is the second story in the Hoops series

    “And even in the dark, I know we see each other.”

    Kennedy Ryan never fails to astonish me with her writing prowess. I absolutely loved this character driven, romantic, SECOND CHANCE love story and the characters whom take centre stage. Banner Morales and Jared Foster were firm friends until the devastating day they are not and it is from this point that the love story takes flight in full romantic alpha male style in the formidable world of NBA. Block Shot is the second story in the Hoops series but can most definitely be read and thoroughly enjoyed as a standalone. It effortlessly flows toggling between the first-person perspective of Jared and Banner. It made my reading heart so very happy. I smiled throughout so much of the narrative, highlighted huge sections that made me swoon with feels. It definitely shows the lighter side of Kennedy Ryan’s writing style but, even so, complex emotions are depicted and develop at the perfect pace through the narrative. The conflict of emotion within the character’s thoughts teamed with the authors compelling storytelling style made me shed emotional tears. The pivotal part August (the male protagonist from, ‘Long Shot,’ the first Hoops novel) plays in Jared’s thought process is simply beautiful and heart-warming, I loved his input. Readers who have experienced, 'Long Shot,' will adore this aspect and those that haven’t, well it matters not one bit but it will make you see what a great guy August is and compel you to dash to his story.

    I felt the intense attraction between Banner and Jared who depict a relationship with growth and convincing transitions within the story timeline. Banner and Jared have both reached the pinnacle of their careers as sports agents for the elite of the basketball world. Jared wants to rule the world, he’s arrogant, powerful, sexy as anything, and knows exactly what he wants and I loved seeing him execute his desires. He made me laugh and swoon and sigh. There is something very sexy about a man who finds a woman he loves to distraction and puts her at the heart of his world, despite his alpha tendencies. Banner is the softer side of the story. Kindness and light. Strong and resilient. I love her so much and respected all the decisions she found herself having to make as the plotline thickened.

    Every time Kennedy Ryan presents readers with a novel she gives something different in terms of character and plot. She keeps things fresh, organic and unique. Banner is a smart, super intelligent woman with inner strength, she has to be to succeed in her chosen career, but keeping it real, as always, Kennedy shows how even the strongest of women can have insecurities, vulnerabilities that can shape their thoughts feelings and behaviours and it is the execution of these aspects that made me warm to her so very much, especially in the early stages of the novel. This ensured that I rooted for her all the way through, felt her pain, her emotional turmoil and her passion. Her struggles resonated with me, like they will with so many other women who feel some kind of imperfection but have the capacity to overcome these feelings with unconditional and resounding love.

    Kennedy Ryan takes you deep into the story, ensnares your heart with her characters and their emotions, each time fooling me into a new favourite, when in reality everything she writes is exceptional and unique and, in my top, top reads. The links made within the narrative of this novel are stunning. Subtle reminders of early happenings in the story, of experiences and thoughts linked back to later in the prose evoking strong feelings and emotion. There are moments that touched me deeply because of the way she weaves her prose, layering the nuances of her characters and their story, developing both convincingly. The story made me feel and hope and long, and will be one of my forever favourites.

    Be braced. I read a book I think is vitally important and I love it and I can’t even think about how to collect myself. I’m really trying to pull it together because you need coherency and all I can think of is the precise angle to just start shoving Block Shot into reader’s hands and eyeballing (with intensely raised brows) until they finish it! Annnnd that is probably not the best way to go about it. I think you’d prefer I just organize some words and tell you what to expect from this new book

    Be braced. I read a book I think is vitally important and I love it and I can’t even think about how to collect myself. I’m really trying to pull it together because you need coherency and all I can think of is the precise angle to just start shoving Block Shot into reader’s hands and eyeballing (with intensely raised brows) until they finish it! Annnnd that is probably not the best way to go about it. I think you’d prefer I just organize some words and tell you what to expect from this new book.

    Ahead you are going to encounter some bombastic, elite level of fangirling (or I can do the book shoovey, eyebally thing?!?) because Block Shot is here y’all!

    L-O-V-E-D it. So many laughs. So many tears. I have what may be permanent pearl bead indentations on my hand from the frequent pearl clutching. I had no idea what to expect from this novel. I’ve been reading Kennedy Ryan for years and she always delivers. Her hallmark? Deeply poignant and transformative writing. Her characters are perfectly imperfect. The stories, contemporary and uncannily relatable and authentic.

    Block Shot is book 2 in the best selling Hoops series and features Jared Foster and Banner Morale. Both Jared and Banner are very successful, and rival spots agents who have H-I-S-T-O-R-Y. It is the enemies to lovers and second chance romance you don’t want to miss.

    Jared wasn’t supposed to go for girls like her. He was gorgeous, smart and impressive, even as a co-ed. Sure they would never happen, Banner settled for his friendship, cherishing their every moment together, studying and doing laundry at the campus laundromat (damn laundromat *shakes fist*…a little foreshadowing, but you will come to abhor said laundromat as well, promise!).

    Banner was his dream girl. Unbelievably smart speaks several languages and is absolutely beautiful to him. Fed up with passing the time with easy and empty-headed girls, Jared makes his move and what began as a secret moment, is harshly stolen from them, setting the stage for years of acrimony and rivalry.

    Until fate reunites them, the timing couldn’t be worse and Banner has all her industrial strength walls up, but Jared is taking his shot and he’ll be damned if anyone or anything is going to block it!

    1.“You can quote me on that.”

    “The Daughter of a Lion is Still a Lion”

    The first time I saw this quote, I felt chills. It felt so powerful and affirming. Block Shot is full of quotes that speak to your soul. So much of the book is highlighted. I never want to forget the way these characters and their words made me feel. There is a strong arc about women and their place in the “man’s world” of sports management. Banner was a warrior and spoke to the feminist in my heart. Apart from the pro-woman rallying quotes, the quotables surrounding love and loyalty and utter honesty and self-actualization were sublime.

    2. Banner.

    “I don’t give a damn about odds,” she says. “Odds don’t tell me what I can’t do. Odds just tell me how hard I’ll have to work to get what I want. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel less.”

    Block Shot is exactly the book I didn’t know I needed. Reading it shined a bright light on how badly I’ve been missing connecting with heroines on a more visceral level. Talk about perfectly imperfect. Talk about relating to Banner and her inner dialogue soooo closely it was almost as if I gave my personal deets to the author to base her on. I can’t (want to!!!) give anything away but I saw soooo much of myself in this character it was scary-freaky-good. I was super invested in and connected to her right away. Her struggles with self-image, her bleeding heart, her will to win when they want her to lose. Her refusal to apologize for her vagina and her challenges with loyalty, honesty and doing the right thing, even when it hurts you the most. I’m willing to bet many women will be inspired. Many.

    3. Jared.

    “You’re supposed to say something romantic.”

    He’s so not what you expect. I love an alpha asshole hero. Probably more than the next girl. Surly is sexy to me, (not sorry!) and he…well, it took several chapters for me to stop squealing and exclaiming at something he did or said. I relished how he kept me so off balance. I loved his assholery.

    Jared is such a tricky characterization. The nuance to make us love him for *exactly* who he is was such a delicate balance. Even better- he *didn’t* change! So often the standard romance M.O is to redeem and change the assholey hero. Not here! He was who he was and he loved Banner deep – and THAT was enough. He was still him, he didn’t morph into the suddenly anti-Jared guy. He was juxtaposed with another rival character and he didn’t have to go full on sap to still be worthy and for the story to work.

    *Further proof that Banner is indeed every woman, I got a kick out of Banner having the exact same reaction to Jared that I was regarding his “Jaredness.” At like 12% or 17% through I had to take a break and totally go I CAN’T BELIEVE HE SAID THAT! HOW DOES HE SAY THESE THINGS! and dammit if Banner didn’t have the same sentiments, verbatim later on in the book!

    Oh, Jared!

    4. Refreshing and Unpredictable

    I never could really figure out exactly where the story was going, the main arc and subplots were multi-layered in a way where literally anything could happen. A little more than midway through I was tormented with the desire to find out what is going to HAPPEN. I felt like I was surrounded by forks in the road, left or right, what will happen, eeeek! It is exciting and a refreshing thrill to have to be so *present* in a book you are reading because the characters zig when you expect a zag. This is definitely not “romance-paint-by-numbers” where you see the resolution coming a mile away. There is a slick brilliance to crafting a story where the build-up could have several viable outcomes. Especially in the last quarter of the book. Pins and needles.

    5. Bold and unafraid to go there

    By “there” I mean, any place that might challenge you or make you uncomfortable. Her stories can feel like mirrors, held up and forcing head on self-examination. Kennedy Ryan tells you a story of realistic heartache, pain, fear, loss, battle, and perseverance and dares you to look away. Loved! And true to form, Kennedy is on trend and pushing the envelope, always making you think and evaluate your personal moral compass. ‬Always framing her characters in a way where right and wrong can be two sides of the same coin. No perfect people here folks, just romantic authenticity.

    6. Smex!

    “So you want me to ride you, Jared?” I ask playfully as he stretches out under me and I straddle his strong thighs. “Do I want you to ride?” He challenges me with one cocked brow. “Hell, no. If you’re taking the top, you better drive.”

    …………

    “Is everything okay?”

    Okay? Is nirvana okay? Is utopia okay? Because that is what Banner’s tight-fisted pussy feels like around my hungry cock. Like someone tossed paradise and heaven into a blender to make this moment. “Yeah, it’s good,” I say.

    Understatement. No need to reveal her pussy sent me into an existential crisis.

    ………..

    I withdraw only for a second and to the very tip, but it feels like torture until I push back in. She surrounds me. The smell of her invading my nostrils, the taste of her lingering on my tongue, the feel of her gripping not just my cock but my whole body."

    I can’t imagine not having experienced this novel.

    If you’ve read it already or are currently reading it, friend me and message me for heavens-sakes so we can connect because I have THOUGHTS!!!!

    These are only a few of the things I felt while reading this story. I’m a devoted Kennedy Ryan lover. Her books have been my favorite since the beginning of time. I always say every-time I read a story of hers. This book. This book right here is her best, there is no way she can get better, she won’t top this. Yaaa!she continues to surpass my expectations.

    Block Shot is an exhilarating ride of firsts, lasts, perfecting the already perfect, passionate frenzy, and a whole other level kind of falling in love.

    Jared and Banner meet in College and start a friendship that ends pretty much as fast as it starts. It’s now 10 years later and Jared and Banner are the top sports agents in LA. After years of avoiding Jared, Banner comes face to face with the man who humiliated and destroyed any idea of a relationship.

    These two create fire when they are going at it. The banter the heat. The lust. The push and pull. I devoured this epic story.

    Banner is in a league of her own, her character development was an addiction on its own. She owned it, she worked it. She showcases what a strong beautiful woman looks like. She’s phenomenal! She’s unstoppable. She’s strong. She’s fierce. She’s the epitome of what it means to be female.

    Jared! This man. I loved him right from the start, he’s alpha, meets loyal, meets won’t back down. I absolutely adored everything this man had to offer. What I Truly loved was through it all he never backed down, especially when it comes to Banner. He will fight and fight and fight. And he does. He’s protective, yet possessive, yet when you least expect it, sensitive. He blew me away.

    Block Shot is an Epic love story. It made me feel. It made me ache. It made me scream. It made me gasp, it made me fall in love. Bravo to Kennedy Ryan who continues to blow the reading world by storm.

    MUST READ.
