Baseball wasn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…
The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. 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 … he 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 world broke apart.

Moonshot by Alessandra Torre made me realize how much I love a good sports romance! Ty and Chase’s story had it all: the fiery bright glow of first love plus heartbreak, angst, and second chances along with a suspenseful murder mystery!
When we first meet Ty Rollins, she’s a 17-year-old beautiful ball girl who lives and breathes baseball. It’s the only thing that holds her interest until she meets the superstar bad boy of baseball, Chase Stern. Chase is only 5 years older than Ty so it’s not a huge age difference, but it’s just enough to give you that taboo rush when reading about their initial encounters. The odds are stacked against them. But can they make it work?
This is where things really pick up. As their relationship begins to blossom and grow into something that will change their lives forever, they both make irrevocable mistakes. There were times I wanted to reach through my book to shake some sense into them, but I held out hope that they would find their way back together. The beauty of this book is that their mistakes and missteps make the whole thing that much more believable. I was immersed in their story and was rooting for them the entire time.
I think now is a good time to mention the super hot sex! The chemistry between Ty and Chase is palpable. I wanted, needed, dreamed of these two getting together. The intimate scenes were so erotic, I wanted a front row seat to the action!
Throw in the murder mystery and I was hooked! Who is killing these women? What does it have to do with Ty and Chase? Will we get an answer?! These were all questions I was asking throughout the book.
Also, I grew up in a football house, but reading Moonshot made me wish I had grown up in a baseball house. The stats and fun facts surrounding the game made the reading experience that much better. I love reading books where I feel like I’m learning something along with growing to love the characters.
Alessandra Torre has a writing style like no one I’ve read before. She’s completely unique in her storytelling, and I love it! I’m so glad I started reading her this year! If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading a Torre book yet, you should start with Moonshot! Go give this one a 1-click now!
