If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...
The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.
Her anger is...arousing.
Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,
gets me...well, you know.
If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.
I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.
I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up."
They say even rich men don't always get what they want,
but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.
Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?
She doesn't even know how to play.
If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I'd have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.
I've moved on.
I've found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?
Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.
I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.
Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.
But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

"Most people are simple, easy to figure out. But Banner has an algorithm I haven't solved yet. Maybe tonight I will." 

I can never go wrong with a Kennedy Ryan book. I know every time that I read one of her books, I am going to be in a whirlwind of feels and amazed by her talent to write such incredible stories. Every single time I read one of her books, I am always astounded by how amazing her writing truly is and how much the characters just steal my heart. Block Shot was no different. 

Block Shot owned my heart on the first page and even though I've already finished it, I already want to read again, and fall back into their story. I am obsessed with Banner and Jared. 

"The daughter of a lion is still a lion." 

Jared and Banner meet in college. Banner is awed by Jared but knows he would never be interested in someone like her. A girl with hips and maybe too much junk in the trunk but she doesn't see what he sees. What he's always seen. Jared and Banner have an inseparable bond in college. A friendship that can't be broken until it is and Banner's life is left in shambles, and her heart simply broken. 

"I'm living proof that ruthless people who don't give a f*** want special things, too. And I'm taking mine." 

Now ten years later Banner is anything but that same girl Jared new in school. She's as fierce as ever and in the best shape of her life. And she's happy. Or so she thinks. When Jared is brought back into her life, she can't deny how attracted she is to him but she knows what lies beneath his skin. Nothing but a liar. And the last thing she wants is for him to be in her life again. But Jared won't give her up until she hears his side of the story of what happened years ago. 

"I want her to yield. I want her as preoccupied with me as I am with her. As fixated on me as I am on her. Anything less than her feeling as obsessed as I do just doesn't seem fair." 

Jared doesn't plan on letting Banner go this time but she isn't his anymore. She belongs to someone else but that's not going to stop him from going for what he wants. Jared never claimed to be a good person and Banner knows that. He's ruthless and knows what he wants, and what he wants is Banner. 

It's hard for me to even put into words how perfect this story is. From the first page up until the very last I was captivated by this story and Kennedy's beautiful way of telling a story so real, it hurts your heart.
