“Together, we would only bring chaos.”
I’m going to let everyone in on a secret. This is my very first Alessandra Torre book. IT’S CRAZY, RIGHT!? Sadly it is, BUT, I am glad I read Moonshot. I have never read a book like this before. A forbidden relationship, sports romance, some suspense, and a second chance romance all rolled up in one.
Chase Stern gets traded to the Yankees due to some bad behavior. He’s nothing but trouble and Ty has been warned by her dad to stay away from him. She tries to avoid him completely, but it’s a difficult feat.
“I woke up the next day with a task almost as improbable: avoid Chase at all costs. Eye contact would be dangerous, any conversation disastrous.”
Sharing such a deep connection and attraction makes it harder to stay away. Inevitably love blossoms between them and they start a relationship.
“There is no stopping this. There was no more resisting. Damn any of the consequences, damn any future heartbreak.”
Everything is perfect until *BAM*, they are separated for 4 years! FOUR YEARS, people! GAH! I was frustrated and heartbroken. Four years later and their paths cross again. Feelings are rushed back… stronger… more urgent. Let the angst begin!
I was rooting for Chase and Ty. I just loved how Chase still loved Ty so fiercely, you could feel it through the pages. How since the very beginning, he wanted to be a better man for Ty. I wanted, no, I needed for them to get back together. Things weren’t that easy though. They had to go through a lot to get their happy ending. Of course they got it and I couldn’t have been any happier. There was this one quote that made my heart melt! Chase is one swoon-worthy man!
“I love you because your smile does something to my heart. I love you because when I see you, I can’t stop staring at you. And when you’re away from me, I can’t stop thinking about you. I love you because right now, there’s nothing more tempting in life than to pull you on top of me and push inside of you. And I love you because you’re the first woman on earth who I’ve wanted to wait for. Who I’ve treasured enough to be patient. I could wait a hundred years for you because the thought of doing anything that brings you pain makes my heart break.”
I’ll just leave it at that! There’s so much more to the story but I’m not going to ruin it for anyone. I think you should just experience it all on your own if you haven’t read it yet. It is compelling and intense! You don’t want to miss out on this.
