How Not to Get Shot: And Other Advice From White People
How Not to Get Shot: And Other Advice From White People - D.L. Hughley

I Picked Up This Book Because: Curiosity


The Book:


I’ve had a very difficult time writing this review. All I can think clearly is that this book made me feel. Injustice, sadness, anger, amusement, righteousness, indignant, low self esteem. I wish this was a book that didn’t need to be written. That we could just flip a switch and people would see that we are all made of the same things. Unfortunately that is not the world we live in.

Since I don’t want to leave this review on a negative note. I’ll say DL did a great job injecting humor into a topic that is inherently humorless. I hope many people read/listen to his words and it makes them think about their own character and how things can change in the world.

Shot on Goal (Game On in Seattle Book #11) by Jami Davenport
Shot on Goal - Jami Davenport

Jami Davenport lights the lamp with SHOT ON GOAL, the eleventh book in the Game On in Seattle series. Hockey star Drew Delacorte and former Olympic figure skater Marina Sanders are broken souls. This is their story about what caused their troubles and what is in store for their future. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

I adore Drew and Marina. They have a complicated past. They are both broken and get what the other is going through. They are both very human. They have made mistakes and must live with the consequences.

I appreciated that Marina was given an opportunity with the Sockeyes. She is a tough individual with a lot of talent. Drew and his parents are living with the ghost of Drew’s dead brother David. Drew is being smothered by his parents and no longer enjoys life until Marina makes him smile again.

I like that the story was realistic. The characters face a lot of difficult decisions and make hard choices. Things don’t always turn out how they want. This novel is an excellent example of how one mistake can impact your life. Unexpected things happen. I like how the story was resolved. Furthermore, I love that the Sockeye’s make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. There are some great hockey scenes. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Release Blitz w/Review - Shot On Goal

 
These two professional skaters are about to meet their match.
Shot on Goal by Jami Davenport is available now!
 
 
 

When you're at the top, there's nowhere to go but down. Two talented skaters. Two bright futures. Two shining stars. One ruined by a career-ending scandal and another by a father's ruthless ambition. She was the darling of the winter games, winning a bronze in pairs figure skating one week after losing both parents in a car accident. He was the future of the Sockeyes hockey team crowned the best young player in the league and heir-apparent to the hockey throne once occupied by his father. Together they're fire and ice, and when things get that hot, they melt. Can these two broken souls find comfort and courage in each other's arms or will they find only pain and regret?

 

 

 

 

 

Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle Book 11)Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #11, in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this incredible series in order.

Drew and Marina have a complicated history. With a lot of tragedy in their pasts in common, they bond on the current love of hockey and all that it means to both of them. Drew has finally figured out what he wants - and it is Marina.

Marina has had a long climb back to the opportunity she has been given for this great team. She cannot afford to lose it by being attracted to the sexiest man she has ever seen. With all that they have between them, she is shy to give even herself a chance.

This book was such a slow burn, I honestly almost put it away and gave up. I will be completely honest with you. It was close. The burn in this book builds and builds with conflict and intense heat, that it actually became this author's best work for me in the end. I loved the characters, the series, and the subject. Totally great read and I highly recommend! I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

BlockShotRBBanner.jpg

JARED

 

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.

 

 

BANNER

 

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.
